Pumpkin Girl Thanksgiving

I didn’t get to use this image last month during the Digi of the Month Challenge at From the Heart Stamps because I just ran out of time. Well this month I thought she would be perfect to match the color scheme over at Scrapbook.com October Card Challenge. So my hubby colored her in photoshop for me to match the color challenge. I used I [heart} card sketches #123 at From the Heart Stamps as my inspiration. The paper had some green dots so I decided to use jewels to cover them up.

I have a lady at the retirement home that has a secret pal so she has a standing order for each holiday. So this will be the Thanksgiving card.
Inside: Wishing you the blessings of the Season. Happy Thanksgiving.

1) October Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – color category – purple, orange, teal, brown, cream/white.

Valentine’s for a Secret Pal/Secret Sister

Inside: Happy Valentine’s Day!   Guess who?

When I saw this adorable image was the January Digi of the Month at Deedee’s Digis I was so happy I played last month….because that meant I got it free! I thought this would make a cute Valentine card for a secret pal/secret sister.  Which I have a standing order with one of the ladies at the retirement home to make a secret pal card for each holiday so I’m always on the lookout for good images that can be used! I wanted it to have a Valentine feel without it being too lovey.  I used the color version then used the outline version to paper piece the blue part of the hat and sweater. I wanted the cream color to be the main color instead of white so I cut the snow out and only left a little on the mailbox. And with all the cold weather and snow we are having lately we just might have snow covered mailboxes for Valentine’s Day! I used i {heart} card sketches #51 as my inspiration (I love her sketches!). I think her secret pal is a female but I think with these colors it could go either to a female or male.

And you know you have way too much cardstock when the patterned paper states it matches 4 Bazzill Cardstocks and I had everyone of them!! I actually think that is being well prepared!

CHALLENGES:

1) Deedee’s Digis January Digi of the Month Challenge – Use the image provided and get next month image FREE!

2) Crafty Creations Challenge #255 – Seasonal (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter) – I went with winter with the snow on mailbox, sweater and stocking cap!

3) Jan Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Theme – Love

4) Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge #162 – Spots and Dots. I hope mine counts as I think Spots and Dots are the same thing.

5) i {heart} card sketches #51 –  use the sketch as inspiration.

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.
