SSW2-101 A Snowy Christmas

Welcome back.  It's another Wednesday and we have a brand new challenge over on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 blog.

This week we are sponsored by Megan Suarez of Dilly Beans.  I'm using her image: Heart Snowman.

Since I'm still a bit light in the number of cards that I have for the holidays, I made two cards.  I only changed a few things but they do look quite a bit different.

I hope that you will join in the fun.

Seriously Sick of Making Christmas Cards ...

I'm spending our time off from the routine of school in the craft room.

I'm trying to use all off the pre-printed images that I have.  This little cutie is from Dilly Beans.  They are such fun to color. I'm experimenting and trying to give texture to the images using darker colors and my white pen.

I'm using the sketch from Try Stamping On Tuesday blog.  I rotated the sketch to fit my image but I DO like how the card turned out.

My next card is using a Bugaboo image and the sketch from the Stella Says Sketch site.

I made the card a square but pretty much stuck to the sketch to finish the card (kinda unusual for me!)

Cranking Out Christmas Cards

I just got a MISTI.

For those of you not in the know, it stands for Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented and those suckers are kinda expensive.  But ... it will probably pay for itself in paper.  I used only ONE piece of paper to stamp this image.  Seriously ... a major miracle!

How cute is this guy?  It's from Art Impressions and the sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

My second card features an image from Bugaboo and uses the sketch from the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  I flipped the sketch and then made the squares a tiny bit bigger!  I have 28 more cards to make.  I think I can!

DP: Tuesday Throwdown

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the challenge over on the Tuesday Throwdown blog.  Their theme is "festive pumpkins."  I know, it's a stretch using an image with pie to join in but I figure it works because the pie is pumpkin and I know that I'm always festive when I'm EATING pie!!

I'm using TWO Doodle Pantry images for this card.  One is Pumpkin Pie Ants and the sentiment comes from the Pumpkin set.  Come join the fun.

DP: Love To Scrap Challenge Blog

I know.

It's another card with snowmen!  It will probably come as no surprise to learn that I have three more snowman cards coming your way!!  I can't seem to help loving silly snowman images.

These crazy snowmen are exception; they are from the Doodle Pantry set "Snowman Pile-up." Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the challenge over on the Love To Scrap Challenge blog.  I hope you have time to join in the fun.

SS 434: Big Bear Hugs

Happy Saturday!

It's time for another Sketch over on the Sketch Saturday blog.  We have a new sketch for you and the return of Robyn's Fetish for our sponsor.

This week I used Robyn's "Big Bear Hug Bobby" for my card.  I need a baby card because I will, again, be a GrAunt (great aunt).  One of my favorite things is calling my hubby, "Gruncle Ken" and then watching his wince ... what a great name!  Grumpy Uncle Ken, Great Uncle Ken ... either name works!!  But anyway, as of December there will be a new baby in our family!  I'm pretty excited.

Stop on by the blog, and join in the crafting fun this week!
