I used the Sketch from the latest Sketch Saturday Challenge to create these two cards using the same image from Sassy Cheryl's - Winter Social. How cute is Sassy Sally sitting in that tree with her little bird friends...! I love seeing identical cards in two totally different color combinations. Totally changes the card!!
Here is the Sketch:
Thanks so much for visiting - Wishing you all a Safe and Happy New Year's celebration!!
I needed a few Masculine Birthday cards this weekend... Started off with this cute owl image from MelJen's Design. I used the Sketch from the Challenge over at Retro Sketches and rotated it 90 degrees. The papers and ribbon are from my stash. The button and black hemp are Close to My Heart.
Who doesn't love Snowmen?? They are a favorite of mine in these Winter months. So far, we haven't had enough snow in my neck of the woods... but, I am sure we will before this season is over... I shall patiently await their arrival...
Just wanted to share this Nativity wall hanging I made for Christmas gifts this year. I actually made 6 of them and have had requests for next year. I got the idea off of Pinterest and then changed it up a bit.
The images are from the Digi Stamp Boutique - Cute Nativity Set 2 . I colored them up with Copics and added some Silver Stickles to the stars and Wise Men crowns and gifts. I chose coordinating papers and mounted them all to 6" x 6" cork tiles. The three squares are attached with staples and Tacky Glue to Burlap ribbon (Close to My Heart) with a Bow attached at the top.
Welcome Friends - Another Sweet Sketch Wednesday is here!! I hope you all had a wonder-filled Christmas with family and friends. I love attending our Christmas Eve service. We then attend a Swedish Smorgasbord at my sister's, Santa came to her house - I love to see the excitement in the eyes of the children!! My Christmas morning was a little quiet this year. My husband had to work, my "kids" are grown and on their own... but I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed Christmas! A quiet start to the day with my two Boxers, my Bible, quiet meditation, then coffee with my daughter and her Fiancee!! I was so excited to get a call from my daughter who just got engaged!!
Christmas Day ended with my family around the table for a nice Dinner.

My 4 year old Great-Nephew Axel went to see Santa and when asked what he wanted for Christmas his response was "A Cello"!! When I heard that story I knew right away what image to use for his Christmas card =)
I used the Sketch over at Sketch Saturday.
The paper is Authentique - Festive. The image is from The Stamp Fairy. I colored it with Copics and then fussy cut him out. The ribbon is from my stash and the buttons and brads are all Close to My Heart.
I'm entering this card in the following Challenges:

I love this sweet little boy and his dog - I used a new paper pack from Authentique - Lovely. Many of the papers have a Valentine theme. If I were to add a sentiment to this card I think it would say... You Hold the Key to My Heart!!
