Sunflower Wedding and Birthday

So one of the guys I work with is getting married tomorrow. So I made a card for all of us at work to sign. He said they really didn’t have wedding colors but was decorating in sunflowers and country feel. So this is what I came up with!! Found the sunflower stickers at Hobby Lobby and they were on sale that week!!

This is my 2nd card with sketch #1 from the August Card Sketch Challenge. I saw this sketch and thought it would be perfect for a friend of mine who just became a grandma for the first time. The colors on the card are the colors of the nursery. I wanted a fun happy card cause that is the type of grandma my friend will be. Now the card didn’t come out as cute as I pictured but she loved it so that is all that matters. And I finally used my Sew Easy that I have had forever!!

21st Birthday


21st Birthday

So one of my co-workers requested a 21st Birthday card for his daughter. He said an alcohol beverage was okay and to make it a fun birthday card. Well, I hope I did just that with the bright colors and design.  He said he liked it!

I used sketch #142 at Feeling Sketchy for my design. I found the bubbly drink sticker in my stash that matched perfectly with the Doodlebug glitter stickers I used for the “21”. I finally got to use the frame with bubbles from the Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge!!!

I almost forgot about this card!

Spring Flowers Easter Card

I’m not even sure what I was looking for but found this Spring Flowers sticker all by itself. Well, Scrapanda has challenged us to use our stickers and I happily accepted. I went looking at sketches and found Sketch Saturday #402 would work nice with the sticker. I then went to my Easter scraps and found this old KI scrap that matched perfectly!! The tag looked to bare so I got out my new basket weave embossing folder since baskets go with Spring! Got out my EK Success flower punch to add a little something in the corner of the tag! Oh and a little purple gingham ribbon and the card was done…all inspired by a sticker!!

Tea is Happiness


Tea Happiness

So my nurse friend ordered this card for her boss that has a birthday this week. Her boss loves tea so she asked me to do a tea themed card. I sent her several images and sayings and this is what she picked. The original pre-colored image has blond hair. She wanted the lady to have dark hair because she looks like her boss. So I once again batted my eyelashes and asked hubby to color in the lady and give her dark brown hair. Well he colored the whole image without even seeing the original and got so darn close to original colors. I then took the image and saying she picked and put them together to make this card. She loved it!  The image, Tea Time,  is a free one at Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps

I apparently like this sketch found on as I used it on two cards this month (see below for 2nd card)!

When I saw Vivian Lake’s card that is for the “lift” category in the Feb Inspirational Card Challenge I figured I had a digital stamp or SVG that I could use. But then I thought I bet I have 3- dimensional stickers that would work. I didn’t even get to the sticker binders before I found these in the cabinet laying next to the binders. While looking for paper I remember the challenge at Jingle Belles Christmas Challenge is to you lots lot of text. Well I know it is the same word over and over but when I saw it I thought it looked good and worked for the challenge. I embossed snowflakes on the white piece that look just like the ones on the blue piece.

1) Feb Inspirational Card Challenge – Lift Category – lift Vivian Lake’s card that is posted.
2) Jingles Belles Feb 12th Challenge – Text Me – use fonts…focus on the text/words of the card.  Hopefully this is enough text on the card.
3) Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge #268 – use the color blue

4) Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge #65 – Emboss it

Stickers: I believe they were at Hobby Lobby a few years ago
Cardstock: Bazzill (yellowgreen, Red Devil, white)

A Sparkly/Shiny Christmas


At For Fun Challenges we will be doing a different Christmas challenge each week up till Christmas. This week’s challenge was Shiny/Sparkly Christmas. I love snowmen so when I saw these stickers I just had to have them for this challenge….didn’t hurt that they were 50% off (at Hobby Lobby). There are 4 stickers to a sheet and I plan on making up all 4 but was only able to get 2 done right now. So here is my Shiny/Sparkly cards:

I hope you can see all the sparkles on the stickers plus the shiny rick rack and gems makes it pretty Shiny/Glittery! Oh I also used shiny white cardstock.

Hope you play along with us.
