Oh what fun it is to ride in the jeep with you on Christmas Day!!

I made this card for my husband. He is a jeep guy and as soon as I saw this digi at JW Illustrations I knew it would be perfect for him. I used Digi Sketch Challenge (8/18/14) as my inspiration.
I used Doodlebug Scraps I had. I did cut out the digi to pop dot it to give it dimension.

Have a Monster Smashing good time on your 4th Birthday!

A friend at work requested a monster truck birthday card for her grandson who is turning 4. I used the sketch in the Feb Inspirational Card Challenge but it didn’t turn out exactly but you should still see elements of the sketch.

Dump Truck Birthday



I had an order for a construction vehicle theme birthday card for her 3 year old grandson. She had sent me a sample of what she liked and this was my version. She liked it so that was good!

I used Toy Truck Ants digital image by Doodle Pantry. I modified it with the owners permission (make sure to always ask before modifying a digital stamp). I actually didn’t modify it my husband did once I told him what I wanted. I wanted the dump truck with dirt so he erased the ants from the dirt and added that dirt to the blank truck. Then he added a 3 to the dirt! Love his PS skills!!

1) Feb Inspirational Card Challenge @ – Bonus Category – have a number on the card.
2) Ants in my Pantry Digital Challenge #14 – Anything Goes theme but must use a digital image (from any company).

Pulling presents through the snow!


Pulling Sleigh

So I was struggling with the sketches in the Sept Card Sketch Challenge as they were not coming to me. I’m not a CAS card person so I was struggling this month. While I was waking up Wednesday morning this ideal came to me for Sketch #2. Instead of a banner I ripped the paper and instead of the stars I put an image there. This card ended up being CAS and I love it. I used sparkle paper from Doodlebug to represent snow and shiny paper underneath to represent the compressed snow! Hope it makes sense as to the scene I was setting!

I used the outline and colored versions of this digital stamp. I wanted presents on the sleigh but the colored version had them in pink and black and that wasn’t working for my Christmas card. I used the outline version and colored the presents in Photoshop. The girl was beautiful dressed for Christmas in one of the pre-colored images so I just cut her out and glued her on top of the outline version!

1) September Card Sketch Challenge @ – Sketch #2 – originally Seize the Sketch #11

3) Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge – Choose R or E or D. You need to use something to that begins with the letter “R” or “E” or “D” or you could use more than 1

D – Diecut
I used Red
4) Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #125 – Transportation. Use some type of vehicle or transportation on your Christmas card. I used a sled.
