My Favorite Card I have made at Sassy Lil Sketches, I just love the sketch

Hi Everyone,
Life has been busy and so has work.  I don't seem to have enough hours in the day to accomplish everything I need to.  I figure it will take me about 2 more weeks to get organized and caught up with life.
Today at Sassy Lil Sketches is the reveal I did for the card.
Here is the sketch:

I really liked this sketch and fun with it to make another Back To School Card using Fancy Pants.  I had a lot of fun using this paper and embellishments. 
So here is my take on this:

I fussy cut the cards and the paper has all kinds of pencils.  See how fun it is! 
You can come over to the site and play.  You need to have your submissions in by October 5th.

SCRAP AN OBJECT for Nikki Sivils

I did this challenge for the Nikki Sivils challenge for September.  You were supposed to SCRAP AN OBJECT using 75% of Nikki's paper.  So I scrapped about my morning cup of chai from Starbucks using the line called Something for Everyone.  (I thought the blues and greens were perfect to accent the Starbucks cup I wanted to highlight.  I know Nikki loves corner on pictures so I used them to accent the corners of the 12 X 12 sheet of green I used.  I also liked that this line came with a die cut circle with scallops.)    When I started school in September my  barista had my cup waiting at the time I usually come in.  She even wrote a nice "Welcome", which made my day. 

and if you look close I used bling on the banner and in each corner on the the squares (now those squares were fussy cut from the paper).  Here is an up close picture of the bling.

It is hard to see but each square has
tiny bling to accent the square inside the triangle.

My First Sketch at My Sketch World

Today was the first day of my reveal for My Sketch World.  I had fun using the sketch to make another Back To School card for my friend.  I used Fancy Pants line and chipboard to match.  I loved the sketch and it worked perfectly with what I could do.
Here is the sketch:

and here was my take on the card.  I hope you enjoy.

Come on over to play and gain some creativity.

My simple Happy Birthday card

I forgot to show you this card I made last weekend.  I saw a similar one during the summer and thought I would give it a try and I absolutely love how it came out.  This reminds me of a monochromatic card with one of my top companies and it is very simplistic (is that a word).

Here it is:

 The next shot is a picture up close that shows that is the only place on the card that says Happy Birthday and I used the corrugated frame to highlight it.  I added the Butterflies from Jillibean Soup and accessorized it for accent.
Hope you are inspired to do something that you have been anxious to try.

Some things I did this weekend

Today I needed to have some down time so I created 2 cards and 1 layout and it has helped from a heck tick week.
I followed no sketches only the ideas in my mind of things I wanted to try out and now think will use more.
Here is my layout:

Below are the special touches I did to add to the layout.  I made flowers out of old patterns, added some bling, added a journal card in a craft bag and then put some lace trim on the bottom of that.  The paper is from the Urban Garden Collection.  This is my son's Grandmother who is very special to us and I just love this picture of her.

Now here is a card I tried:

I had this chipboard and decided to wrap some twine around it to make a flower.  I have seen this months ago and wanted to try it and you know how I always need birthday cards.

My last card is made using of my favorite paper scraps from other things I have done.  I absolutely love this paper from My Mind's Eye -- Stella Rose and am hoping I never run out of it, but I know it will happen soon.

That's all for this weekend, and hope you enjoy this.

I am a Guest Designer for SKETCHES IN THYME this month

As you read from my title I am the Guest Designer for the month of September at Sketches in Thyme.  I love their sketches and they inspire me to become creative and add my little spin.  I like the fact you have all month to complete the layouts.  Usually week 1 & 2 are sketches and the last week is do whatever sketch you like from whatever blog you saw it at.
 I had a lot of fun with this since I have so many sketches that I have been saving to do.  I found one that fit the picture I wanted to use perfectly.
I am trying to scrap some old pictures this year since I found a whole crate of them that have been untouched.  The boys like to see themselves scrapped and remember back when.

Here is the sketch this week:

and here is what I did:

Come over and play and you can win a package of paper from one of my favorites -- Nikki Sivils.
