Tuesday Morning Sketches

One of the challenges I like to play along with is Tuesday Morning Sketches. The December Flavor of the Month Kit arrived in my mailbox yesterday from Scrapping for Less and here is the card I created.

There are four different collections in the Flavor of the Month. I pulled out the second collection and used the Stamp – Penguin with a Mug by Stamping Bella; papers called “Chill” by Scrapping for Less; and the Sequins by Buttons Galore. I used a sentiment from collection #1 Bear Hugs by Sunny Studio. The card base is Sno Cone from MFT which is also included in the Flavor of the Month.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Scrapping for Less

I subscribe to Flavor of the Month Card Kit by Scrapping for Less. The first kit I received was called For the Love of Pets and I created this card using “Puppy Pals” (Newton’s Nook) for the current challenge over at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.

Along wih the kit each month comes four sketches to help you create cards. This card was based on sketch #2. All of the papers came with the kit as well as the adorable bone paper clip. The image was colored with copics.

I am a shipper for Send A Smile 4 Kids and this card will be going to them.

Rainbow Card Challenge #1

Scrolling through some of my favorite bloggers yesterday I was very excited when I came upon a brand new challenge – The Rainbow Card Challenge. The theme this month is Red Romance. Sorry the image is a little glaring (dreary day here in the NE).

I used versa mark ink and stamped the Simon Says Stamp Sketched Flower image and embossed with gold detail embossing powder onto red cardstock (MFT). I used a prisma color white pencil to color in some of the flowers. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

In addition to shipping cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids I donate handmade cards to Nursing Homes and two Veteran’s Homes in PA, (Philadelphia and Erie). This card will be going to one of the Nursing Homes.

The first challenge of the New Year is up on Sinkin’ Inkers. The theme is “new”. I chose to Congratulate a family who received a new puppy.

January-1-2019

For this card I used elements from different stamp sets. I made my own doghouse out of papers from my stash. The background was created using a cloud stencil.

Thanks for dropping by and make sure you check out Stinkin’ Inkers challenge this month and I hope you will play along.

Happy New Year and Be Blessed.

Stinkin’ Inkers Just Because

I love sending cards for no reason or to let someone know I am thinking of them. They could be sick or going through some tough times. Sending a card can lift their spirits for just a moment and may arrive in their mailbox just at the right time.

Pumpkin Spice Season

It finally feels like FALL here in the Philadelphia area. We had the air conditioner on last week and this week we are turning on the heater. I love that about the Northeast – the four seasons. I am not about leaves – we have four huge trees in our yard and the leaves are just begining to fall (very late this year). So I guess we will be raking until Christmas. I do however love Pumpkin Spice anything!

Here is my card today. The stamp I used on this card reminds me of my daughter who is Vegan but has to have her Pumpkin Spice Lattes!
