Sunday Words of Wisdom (on Monday!)

Hello!  Yes, I forgot to do my Sunday words post.  We are leaving for a cruise next weekend and we have had major issues with our reservation and so dealing with that, I totally forgot!  So, with everything going on, I picked a quote that is a good reminder for stress ...God!  Enjoy ...
 
 
 


Here's the lowdown on my blog posts for the remainder of the month ... I have 4 general themed cards to show you, 2 Halloween cards, 2 more Saturday sketch shares that have Halloween cards, and 2 more words of wisdom posts.  So, right now, today, I am getting all those posts ready and will schedule them to be shown on my blog.  You will see 3 general cards this week, starting Wed., the Saturday post, and the Sunday post.  Next week, also starting on Wed. the last general themed card, the Halloween cards, the Saturday share post and the Sunday wisdom post.  And then I will be home from my cruise and it will be November! 

See you Wed.
Happy Stamping!

Saturday's Sketch Share!

Hello!  I am back today with another share between Debbie and I.  Wait until you see our cards today.  I really love how they came out and the sketch!  Let's get right to it.  I will show you my card, Debbie's card and the sketch we both used.  Enjoy!

My Card

Debbie's Card

The Sketch
Yes, another Halloween card from me, but I have been waiting to see a sketch that I could stamp off the adorable image of the zombie dude.  This stamp from The Cat's Pajamas came out in 2011 I think.  I have wanted it ever since.  Last year, during their cyber Monday sale, I ordered it but because it was past Halloween, I had not inked it yet!  I am so glad to get it inky!  Debbie, I know went with a bright and fun birthday card because her birthday is in a few days!  We wish her a wonderful birthday, don't we!?  Oh, and the sketch, it is a keeper, for sure!  What do you think?

Happy Stamping!

Triple Happy Birthday!

Hello!  Today's card is a birthday card I made for my stepdaughter last month!  Before I show it, I want to warn you, that is doesn't have any designer paper on it!  Not my usual style but ... oh so pretty!  Enjoy!
 
 

My stepdaughter loves purple.  So, I knew a purple card was in order.  I have to add a funny story here, I found some birthday paper in my stash that had purple and I thought I would pair it with an a la mode stamp of a girl with a cake, but decided to check out on my own blog to see what I made for her last year ... I did that exact paper and stamp last year ... oh my goodness!  So, it went with purple copics and did this triple stamping technique.  Love how it came out!  I she loved it too!

Happy Stamping!

Autumn Greetings!

Hello!  I had told you I had some cards that I made last month that I had not shown you, well today's is one I made for The Crafty Scrapper's blog but didn't set it up on my blog to post the same day.  (Not even the same month, that is bad!)  Better late than never ...enjoy!













 
This card was inspired by all the pretty fall banners I have seen.  I thought I could do a mini paper version on a card.  This is the result!  Paper, twine, Impression Obsession's leaf die, a sentiment and some rhinestones make up this fall card!
 
Happy Stamping!

Sunday's Words of Wisdom!

Hello!  I saw this and thought, "oh, how true"!  Enjoy!



This is going to be a busy week as today I am helping out with the store move and then prepping and teaching this week too.  I still have a few cards that I made last month that I haven't shown you, so I will try to do a couple of posts late this week. 

Happy Stamping!

Saturday's Sketch Share!

Hello!  I am back today with another share between Debbie and I.  Are you tired of Halloween cards yet?  I hope not because I have another one for you today and in fact, I have made five more that I will show you before the end of the month.  Debbie on the other hand, is doing birthday cards, because she has a lot of October birthdays in her family (including hers)!  Let me show you my card, Debbie's card, and the sketch we both used!  Enjoy!

My Card

Debbie's Card


The Sketch
Did you notice that I cheated?  Yes, the extra element was supposed to fit on the left top side with the bow on the right like the sketch.  Well ... I did it opposite, element on the right and bow on the left.  I really wanted to use that image and the sketch just wouldn't work unless I changed it!  I also love Debbie's balloon element how she added glossy accents to make it look thick and realistic!  Love them both, how about you?

Happy Stamping!
