Freshly Made Sketches #114

Hello there!  It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  Yay!  And even more exciting…well for me, anyway… the new sketch is MY sketch!

Here is the card I made using my sketch:


I knew I wanted to go all white, especially with that sentiment (love it!).  But the white glitter strips did nothing for the card, in fact, it looked very flat.  I found some very light blue glitter paper and it worked very well.  And I couldn't help but add a few clear sequins.

What do you think?  Want to play along?  Here is my sketch:


Be sure to stop by Freshly Made Sketches and check out the wonderful creations from the Clean Team!  I've gotten a sneak peek and they are pretty awesome!  And please, please come and play.  I'd love to see your take on my sketch!   

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Holiday Sparkle

A quick post this morning with a sparkly holiday card.  This was a quick card which I wasn't even planning to make until I picked up my snowflake dies to put away and was inspired by these two that were still attached together.


Simple, clean, quick and mailable!  Yay!

I'm submitting this card at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: CAS-ual Christmas.

Merry Merry Pillow Boxes

Hello!  I hope you are having a great weekend!  I've been so busy lately, mostly looking for my mojo.  It seems to have gone on holiday early!  I managed to find some yesterday afternoon so I could make these little holiday pillow boxes for the ladies in my golf club:


This was a fun little project.  And the best part was making the little tags.  I didn't have any brilliant ideas for tags this year until I saw this post by Maile Belles.  This appeals to me on so many levels, but mostly because of the patterned paper.  Such a fun way to use all that patterned paper I have.

I pulled out some pretty holiday Stampin' Up DSP from last year and the cute little lady golfer stamp from A Muse Studio.  My Rhubarb Stalk ink from Memento was too juicy but it was the perfect color so I used it anyway.


Yay!  One more thing knocked off my holiday to do list.  Now I have a couple of birthday cards to make today.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Freshly Made Sketches #113

Hello!  It's Wednesday already and there's a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  Time is just flying by!  Last night I made cranberry jello for a Thanksgiving potluck at work later today.  How did we get to Thanksgiving already?!

Our very talented Cindy has an awesome sketch for you today.  I've had this fun patterned paper collection from Crate Paper sitting on my desk for a while - I just love the fun patterns and colors!


I framed the sentiment strip with glitter tape but unfortunately the photo doesn't show how pretty it really is.  And how fun is that sentiment?  

Here is Cindy's awesome sketch:

Freshly Made Sketches #112

Hello there!  It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  Jen Brum is our lovely hostess this week and her sketch is a really fun one!

I love SNOWFLAKES!  And they are my crafting downfall - I buy snowflake stamps, snowflake dies, snowflake embossing folders, snowflake patterned paper … I think you get the picture!  My Christmas cards are all made and the dominant theme was clearly snowflakes this year.  And I obviously still have snowflakes on the brain with my card for the new sketch this week:


I thought I was all done buying Christmas patterned papers this year but I just couldn't resist the Bundled Up collection from Crate Paper.  Such pretty papers and colors, like this gorgeous snowflake paper.


Here is Jen's sketch!  You're gonna love it!

Be sure to stop by Freshly Made Sketches and check out the wonderful creations from the Clean Team!  And please come and play.  I'd love to see your take on Jen's sketch!   

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Freshly Made Sketches #111

Hello!  It's my favorite time of the week again - Wednesday!  And at Freshly Made Sketches  Linda Callahan has blessed us with an awesome new sketch.  LOVE it!

Well, it's been a bit quiet on my blog-o the past couple of weeks.  I was off on a little vacation visiting with my sister and crafting up a christmas card storm (I made 36 cards and she made twice that many!). Then when I got back, before I could get back into the swing of things, I caught a cold.  I'm pretty sure I caught it from someone on the plane - Grrrr!  It wasn't a terrible cold but enough to knock out my mojo for a few days.

But I did manage to spend some time in my craft room this past weekend and whipped up this little gem  using Linda's sketch:


I just love this poinsettia die set from Poppystamps!  I was hoping it would arrive before my trip to my sister's but it was held up when another item in my order went on back order.  Grrr!  Hate when that happens.  But it was waiting for me when I got back home so all is good now. ;-)

Here is Linda's fabulous sketch:
