Owl Valentine


Owl Valentine

Inside: YOU! That’s whooo-whooo! Happy Valentine’s Day

A lady at work requested 2 valentine cards one with an owl and one with a panda. So I used Owl my Love Digital image from Deedee’s Digis which is no longer in business (darn life gets in the way!). I used a sketch posted at Scrapbook.com in the Feb Card Sketch Challenge. Again everything came from the scrap drawers except for the brown card base.

1) Feb Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – sketch #4 (original sketch: Viva La Verve Sketches Aug 2015 week 2)
2) Feb Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Photo Inspirational – went with the valentine theme.

3) Digitally Sweet Challenges #147 – spots and stripes. Can only see a few spots but they are on the circle patterned paper.

Thanksgiving card for a Secret Pal


Thanksgiving Secret Pal

This card was inspired by the November Card Challenge I’m hosting on Scrapbook.com and the fact that I needed to make a lady a Happy Thanksgiving card for her Secret Pal. The Card Challenge has different categories and one of them is a Color category. The colors for November were Orange, Brown and Green so I was super excited to find this image, Autumn Critters, at Doodle Pantry. When I saw the sketch at Sketch Saturday #284 I thought it was perfect….I just turned it vertical.

October Calendar Page


I know I’m a couple days late. Life was not letting me craft. But I finally was able to sneak in my craft room today. I totally slacked and didn’t get 3 done last time so I have 5 more to make these 3 weeks to get my calendar finished. But I will say I’m farther along then I would have been if I wasn’t hosting this challenge.



I used the Ollie Owl SVG File @ Clearly Digi Stamps.

I love Halloween! What’s better then dressing up, acting like a kid and eating lots of candy!!
I used the sketch from Simple Sketches #2 Challenge.

Happy Halloween! Hoot Hoot!!


I was sooooo excited when I saw that Designed 2 Delight brought back the FREE stamp of the Month Challenge! Plus this digital stamp is super cute so I just had to play. I wasn’t sure if I was going to get a chance but I decided to make time. I’m glad I did because I love how it came out.

Sitting here Thinking of You


Clear Dollar Stamps is sponsoring the challenge this week at Twist of Faith Card Challenge so they let me play along as a guest!! Thank you ladies!! I had so much fun making this card and I even used my brand new fence punch! I even used one of the newer stamps Hoot Hoots that I hadn’t had a chance to play with yet! Since I used the owl image I was able to play along with 2 Sisters Challenge Blog which challenged us to use “Things with Wings”.  I used the sketch from Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Challenge #84.

I love that Twist of Faith Card Challenge is a Christian Challenge that bases the challenges on scripture. I did not add a scripture to the card yet because I usually do that depending on who I’m sending it to. I try to pray and send the scripture that God wants in the card.

I hope you will join along and play with the ladies at Twist of Faith Card Challenge and you just might win a $15 gift voucher at Clear Dollar Stamps.
