Blue Atlantic Hearts Sketch

Hello Crafty Friends,
   I was looking for inspiration for my card this morning so I combined the Sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. with the Colour challenge at colour my Heart and here is my card....
I used crystal blue but its hard to tell in the photo; and CTMH's paper silver and gold. the snowflake die is retired as well as the sentiment. I also used the new buffalo plaid embossing folder.
here is the sketch...
And here is the colour challenge colours...                                                                                         
Thank you for checking out my blog. Hope to see you again soon!

CTMH Christmas Tunes

Hello Crafty Friends!
   I am working on some Christmas cards today for my upcoming card class and I wanted to use CTMH's October stamp of the month Christmas Tunes. To help with creativity I went to some blogs! Here are the results.....For this first one I use Case this Sketch! as inspiration. As well as Heart 2 Heart Challenges especially Sue Bruch 's Card using this stamp set! Thanks Sue!!
The Christmas Tree card also uses markers to colour the star's. I stamped in Fern but New England Ivy would likely work better with this paper pack. Also Christmas Cards all year Round Challenged us to use leaves this month....well the paper has leaves so I think that counts :)

This last card I wanted to emboss, I uses the bulk Beary Christmas paper from CTMH for all the cards and added some gold foil tape.
I hope you like my cards, and I hope my ladies like them.

Yummy AHSC#231

Hello Crafty friends,
   Todays sketch at Atlantic Hearts is so versatile! Here is the sketch...
No automatic alt text available.
I decided to make a Christmas card since I use/sell a lot and I'm feeling really behind this year. So I decided to try out CTMH's new Gingerbread Friends, z3378 and thin cuts out. Here is my card..
Pretty Cute eah? I used the basic fundamental paper pack, cranberry, toffee and expresso inks.
I cant wait to see all the amazing cards and layouts made with this sketch.

Punny Sketch #227

Hello Crafty Friends,
    Close to my Hearts New idea book is out and I have been having fun playing with the Punny pals D1751 this week. So for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #227 this week I had to use them! Here is the sketch
And here is my card... I coloured the pig with our shin han markers and used last idea book fundamentals because I haven't ordered the newest yet.
Here are some more cards using retired fundamental papers (although it would be easy to swap out new ones) and the punny pals stamp set and random accessories :)

 For the froggy card I got inspiration from case this sketch
 And the Yappy Birthday pup was inspired from Freshly made sketch challenge 
I was hoping to get more made before my launch party tomorrow but work and life has gotten in the way. I hope you will join our sketch At Atlantic hearts!! and are inspired by my cards.
