SS400: Robyn's Fetish

Morning friends!!  Can you believe that it's another Saturday?

That means it's time for a new challenge over on the Sketch Saturday blog.  We are celebrating our 400th sketch with a great sponsor: Robyn's Fetish.  She is offering our winner 3 digi images from her store.

I turned this week's sketch on it's side so that it would work better with my image.  I'm using Robyn's cutie, An Elephant Never Forgets.  My sentiment is computer generated.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with using this sketch!  Oh, and don’t forget to stop by the Sketch Saturday Facebook Page and give us a like!

TMS: Ann's Card

My car is dead.


It's not my favorite car (hubby picked this one out for me to drive) so every time it breaks I have to bite my cheek to prevent myself from singing the "toldja so" song.  It's a "power steering assist" failure.  I'm thinking this one might be an expensive fix.

But in other news ... I needed a card for my friend to give her pastor.  As soon as I saw the sketch over on Tuesday Morning Sketches, I knew that it would work PERFECTLY!

I'm using the Doodle Pantry image: A Loving God.  Laurie has some amazing scripture images.

SSW2-83: Bugaboo

Happy Wednesday my peeps.

That means it's time for another sketch challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

We have the fabulous Jodie from Bugaboo as our sponsor.  I just love her images. This time I'm using the image: "Mouse - Big Flower."   Totally cute.  Our winner will get SEVEN images.

As always, the team really worked hard on their cards.  Why don't you swing by the blog and leave a bit of love for them.  Why don't you join in the fun this fortnight?

DP: You Mean the World

As soon as I saw the theme over on Jeannie's blog, I knew that I had to participate.  Her theme is Wishy-Washi; and the reason that I had to participate is because I have a container full of washi-tape and I have (whispering) never used any of it.  None.  Shhh.  It's shameful isn't it?!!  I bought it because I thought it was pretty but then just never remembered to use it.


Here it is ... my inaugural washi-tape card.

After I made it, I couldn't help but think of Sheldon's show, "Dr. Sheldon Cooper Presents Fun With Flags" and it made me smile.

I'm using the Doodle Pantry set: Vintage Globe.  I loved how bright and colorful it is.

Hoppy Birthday!!

Just a quick post to show you my card for the progressive challenge over on the Gerda Steiner blog.  How cute is he?!! I love his little overbite.  He's the freebie this month.  In exchange for using it, I will get the next month's image for free.  Yay, free stuff is good!!

When I saw this image, I knew I wanted to make it into a belated birthday card.  The inside says, "It's a hare past your birthday, Happy Belated Birthday"  Considering I'm a card-maker, it's a little shameful how many birthdays I miss (sorry guys!)  I probably need to work on my organizational skills!  But now I have a card to send!

Yikes, I Need More Valentines

Since Valentines is two days away ... I should probably be done making these.  Buuuut, as my family and close friends (oh heck, who am I kidding, I think even my garbage man) can attest, I am rarely on time with anything!!

I still need 4 more Valentines.

I decided to use the From The Heart progressive image and make it love note instead of a Christmas card.  This month's image is called, "Snowman and Cocoa"  It's FREE if you participate monthly.  I think it totally works as a valentine because this image is so darn cute (tho I'm only iffy about this wild background paper!) "

But, I need four more of these bad boys so it stays!   Psst: if YOU are the lucky recipient of this valentine, remember that I love you!

I'm participating in the following challenges:
Dragonfly Journeys: Queen of Hearts (that wild paper makes this challenge work!)
Cute Card Thursdays: Sweet Valentines

SS 398: Best Fishes

Good Morning Peeps.

It's Saturday and that means it's time for another Sketch over on the Sketch Saturday blog.  We have a fun new sketch and the return of a favorite sponsor: it's Tammy from A Day For Daisies.  Tammy is providing our winner a voucher for $12 to use in her shop.

I gotta say that I adore clean sketches.  They allow the images to really shine.  I'm using one of my older ADFD images: Birthday Mermaid.  It's not in the shop anymore (but I bet if you were to ask Tammy nicely, she could find it for you)

Please check out the rest of the DT's creations and give them some love. I hope you will give the sketch a try!

I'm also joining in the "Pretty In Pink" theme over on Dragonfly Journeys

DP: Fab 'n' Funky Sponsorship

This is my second post of the day.  If you are looking for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 post, scroll on down!!

Hey ... guess what I woke up to this morning?  Blue skies!!  Yes (insert fist pump here)!! We got 2 feet of snow in all and now the process of digging out begins.

Today, Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the Fab 'N' Funky Challenge blog.  Their theme ... All Creatures Great and Small.  I used the Doodle Pantry image: Too Sweet Turtle to make my card.

I'm using the sketch from over on the Catch The Bug challenge site except that I rotated it ... and moved the image ... and added some brads and a sentiment.  Yep, it's EXACTLY the sketch.

SSW2-82: Wishing For Warmth

We have a SERIOUS amount of snow, about 18 inches of new snow.  And it's STILL coming down.  Ugh, the thought of plowing (again) makes me cringe.  I haven't left the house in three days.  I not gonna lie, I miss Starbucks!

But the better news is that it's Wednesday.  That means it's time for another challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  This week we are sponsored by DigiStamp Boutique.  Sally-Ann is offering our winner a £10 voucher to her store.

I'm using the DSB Cute Woodland set for my card.  This fantastic set comes with 8 images and 7 matching phrases.  The gigantic area of Sally's sketch gave me room to try making a bit of a woodland scene.

We've changed our timeline for challenges.  You now have TWO weeks to join in the fun.  We hope that you DO join in.
