World's best coffee - TMS #395


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  

Before I get to my card, I have to show you my SNOW!!!  This was my yard last Tuesday when we got over 24" of snow!!  I was so happy to finally get some snow!!  It was coming down at the rate of 4"/hr at one point.   
See our cars??!!??  I promise they are under there somewhere...  (It took my kids and I quite awhile to dig them out...  can you believe my hubby was in CA??!!??) 

 

If you know me, you are probably wondering at the title... if you don't know me, I'll explain... I do not like coffee!!  I don't "go for coffee" the way most people do... my only hot drink is hot chocolate.  (By the way, Busch Gardens in Williamsburg has THE BEST hot chocolate on the planet!!!!)  Anyway, this card is for either my daughter or one of my coffee loving friends.  It was fun to make even with this image. :D 
 

Supplies...
FTHS World's Best Coffee image and sentiment 
Spectrum Noir markers
We R Memory Keepers Hall Pass DP
CottageCutz Stitched Rectangles
Recollections enamel dots  


Here's our wonderful sketch for this week...

'Tis the season to shine - CCC #8


Happy Sunday to you!  It's time for Christmas Card Challenges.

I love my card for this week!  It was fun to make and (after a few ruined tries!) it turned out great IMHO. ;) 


My first into-the-garbage try was because I didn't place the ornaments in the right place.  Duh!!  Next, I had a problem with the string on the middle ornament because the stamp wasn't quite long enough with this placement.  I used my Mini MISTI so I could line it up perfectly to lengthen it but forgot to clean the stamp before setting it down... my finger bumped it so it left a little ink in the wrong place.  Duh again!!  The next one was coming along well, but I didn't realize I had ink on my finger until I noticed a black blob in the middle.  More grrrr than duh!  Finally, I got the strings placed well and added the ornaments.  Using the Mini MISTI was great because I could stamp with Versamark, reink, and stamp again to be assured of a nice full heat emboss...


It's so beautiful IRL!!

Supplies...
Raisin Boat Holiday Hangups clear stamps
We R Memory Keepers Whimsy EF 
Offray gold ribbon
Versamark
MS gold embossing powder


Our optional prompt for this week's challenge is a photo challenge.  We'd love to see how this pic inspires you... I was inspired by the gold on white.  {Remember any Christmas/winter holiday card works, too.}




Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Rosy hello


Wow!  It's been awhile since I've had 2 posts in one day.   Earlier, I had "rosy congratulations" and now I've got a "rosy hello"....


I had some extra time to craft this afternoon, so I made this card to play along at Mojo Monday.  Mojo Monday was the first challenge I ever played with when I started my blog in 2011, but I haven't played along in quite awhile.  I loved this sketch, so I created this card.

Supplies...
Crate Paper DIY Shop
Spellbinders Heart Circles die
Memory Box Virtuoso Music die
QuicKutz Rose die
Art C small doily  
Hobby Lobby ribbon
JustRite "Greetings From London" sentiment
    Here's a closeup... it's hard to notice in the big pic. ;)

Mojo Monday #487 - sketch


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed weekend!  Stay warm... our temps are dropping way down again.  Brrrr!!


Rosy congratulations


This card did not end up the way I planned when I started ((does anything ever??)), but I was pleased with the result.


My paper is Prima Romance Novel and I distressed the edges with my Distrezz-It-All.  My rose is Die-Namites Rosy Rose.  I cut it in both rose and light gray cardstock and adhered them together slightly offset to give it a little dimension.   My sentiment is Raisin Boat's All the Write Words.  I heat embossed it.  The ribbon is from my stash.


Challenges...
Word Art Wednesday #272-273 - anything goes/family friendly
The Paper Players PP334 - theme: cut it out (dies, punches, fussy-cut, etc.)

Warmer winter?


When I made this card on Wed (and did not get it posted then), the temp was around 70 F, so I didn't think that my winter needed to warm up!  (In fact, I wanted it to cool down and snow!!)  Today it's in the mid-20's, and tomorrow's forcast high is 13 F and windy!  I might be looking for warmth then!! :D
 

I printed my image on Kraft and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers and a white Galaxy marker.  This cute little guy is From the Heart Stamps "Little Snowman."  He's cut out with Die-Versions Stitched Nesting Circles.  The Heidi Swapp striped vellum behind it is cut with Spellbinders Standard Circles.  The sentiment is cut with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics.   The background DP is Carta Bella "Snow Fun."  My snowflakes are the Paper Studio.

Challenges...
Cute Card Thursday #467 - anything goes
A snowflake promise #37 - anything goes/opt twist Valentines (I did AG)
i {heart} sketches with a twist #164 - sketch and/or color and/or twist (I did sketch)

Snowman Christmas - CCC #7


Happy Sunday to you!  I pray you're having a blessed day!!

It's time for Christmas Card Challenges.  I've got a happy snowman wishing you "Merry Christmas" today...


This was a fun and rather simple card to make.  I colored my image...  From the Heart Stamps "Rejoice Snowman" with Spectrum Noir markers, trimmed around his bottom, and cut him our with CottageCutz Stitched Rectangles.  I cut my 3 hills (scrap paper) with Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes dies.  The background panel is Carta Bella "Let It Snow" DP and embossed with Sizzix Snowflakes EF.   Some heavy thread and a snowflake brad finished him off. 

Our challenge this week at Christmas Card Challenges #7 has the optional twist of color.  The only real rule is that you make a Christmas/holiday card...



Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

So... have you ever made a card for a couple of challenges and then forgot about it??  That's what happened to me.  I made it last evening, but just remembered it... with about 30 minutes to spare.  Lots of time!! ;) 

Here's my card...


Sorry... I forgot to take a pic of the inside!!!!   It says, "Happy Birthday."  I used a Raisin Boat clear sentiment.  (I'll try to take a pic and update my post.)

My image is From the Heart Stamps Hogs and Kisses Pigwit.  He's printed on Kraft and colored with Spectrum Noir markers and cut out using Spellbinders Standard Circles.  My DP is Paper Crate Flea Market.  My flourish is Darice and the enamel dots are Recollections.

Challenges...
