Scarecrow & Turkey Thanksgiving

Wishing you a Turkey Day stuffed with everything good! Happy Thanksgiving

I was out of Thanksgiving cards so when I had my sale some ladies asked me to make some up quick. So I came up with 3 cards that they could order. Got them done in the nick of time!

I used Sketch Saturday #487 for my inspiration. Instead of a circle in the middle I did a rectangle.

1) Nov 2017 Inspirational Card Challenge – theme – Fall, Thanksgiving, Thank you.

Don’t be Naughty

I have a standing order for a lady at work to make her daughter, son-in-law, and 3 grandchildren cards for Christmas. She said for her son-in-law this year she wanted something to do coal and “don’t be naughty”. Well I immediately thought of this Santa looking at his list from Gerda Steiner Designs – Wishlist Santa. I found this saying on the internet and then the inside says “Don’t be Naughty! Merry Christmas”. She said it was perfect and exactly what she wanted. I used Sketch Saturday #430.

I hope Deedee is sitting down when she sees this!! She is going to pass out that I got it done in the FIRST week instead of within hours of the challenge ending!! Miracles never cease!! 🙂

I needed a card for my brother who is struggling to make ends meet while paying child support so I got him a Wal-Mart gift card to send to him. So I needed a card to go with it so I’m so glad Deedee’s image was this adorable monkey. I batted my eyelashes while asking my husband to remove the cupcake from the monkey’s hand so I could have him hold a sign. I cut off his curl hair because I wanted it to look more manly for my masculine card. Yes, I know I have issues!! 🙂 I found this scrap piece of stripped paper and knew it was perfect for this image. Those glass tiles are at least 8 years old…am I the only one that still owns them??

A Turtle-riffic Birthday!


Turtle-riffic Birthday

Still got this cold but have a little more energy today so since it is the LAST day to enter Deedee’s Digi of the Month challenge I dragged by bottom into my scraproom and came up with this! Not bad for having to blow your nose every 5 min!

I did a mixture of using the pre-colored digi (the base of the turtle) but then colored the shell and balloon in photoshop and glued them on top of the base. Then I printed the hat out on red cardstock and cut it out.

Masculine Birthday Card for Sketch Saturday


So I’m teaching card class at church Friday and we are doing 4 masculine cards since we did 4 feminine cards last month. So I thought the sketch at Sketch Saturday Week #260 would be perfect for a Masculine Birthday Card. I made the first card and liked it but didn’t like the imperfection in the writing around the star so I made card #2. I like card #2 a lot but don’t hate #1 so not sure which to offer at the class!! I think I will offer #2. What do you think?

Happy Birthday Star1
