(sassy sketch)

My friend and fellow DT member at MSW, Katie, is one of 2 gals that make up Sassy Sketches.   They have a fun card sketch this month that I wanted to have a go with.

I made a very simple thank you card replacing the butterflies with clouds.  :)

I adore that cloud punch.  The SRM sticker is from the "We've Got Your Sticker" Thanks sheet. I cut it in half and trimmed it to fit that little punched tag.  Paper is from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop and the hot air balloon is MME.  (just in case you were wondering!)  :)

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Sunday!

{life is good}

Barb at My Sketch World has a fun card challenge this month! She challenges us to use sheet music and a heart on our card for her "Put a Song in Your Heart" challenge.  Cute, right?  I found a simple sketch from The Craft's Meow while perusing Amy's blog.  They are having a challenge this month using the sketch and their stamps.  I don't own any of their stamps, but for those of you who do, there is a random prize draw!  

Here is the sketch:

 I finally got the nerve up to spatter some paint on my card and am happy to say I like how it turned out. I also painted the music sheet with some watered down paint. 
Life is Good

I will be linking this up to The Paper Variety blog too.  It matches the colors in the Photo Inspiration challenge they have going this week!   (for some strange reason, I cant save the photo from TPV)
So, how many of you are Harry Potter fans?  Brady, my middle son, and I are big fans!  We are going to the midnight show of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 tonight!  We have spent the last week watching the first 7 movies to get ready for this, the final one.  

Happy Thursday, friends.  I hope happy finds you today!

{christmas in july} TPV

The Paper Variety is having a Christmas in July challenge!  This is the first challenge with the new DT and there are some really wonderful projects that have been linked to the blog.  I love making Christmas cards so I put one together.  :)  It became a GC holder quite by accident!  *laugh* 

I cut an SRM sticker sentiment in half putting the second half inside:

I'm also going to send this to Paige at the CREATE blog.  The new challenge is to use twine.  :)

My friend, Val made it into the First Round of Gallery Idol! Congrats, my friend!  The 20 finalists had 3 days to make a card with a homemade embellishment.  Check out the cards here. Voting gets them into the next round.  If you have a minute, sign up and vote for your favorite! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Be happy.  :)

{tuesday trigger}

Love the simple card in this week's Tuesday Trigger at  Moxie Fab World and thought I would give it a go.   Here is the lovely card by Tina Fussle:

I had everything ready to go and was having trouble fitting the doily in somewhere. It is such a focal point on the card that I really wanted to incorporate it on mine. I just happened to have my cloud punch sitting on my desk (you should see my desk-what a mess!) It took a couple tries to get just right, but I think it makes a nice cloud. 

Congratulations  (on your new home)

Have a wonderful weekend, friends.  Be happy.

{july card} MSW

A new month always means a new sketch from Lucy at My Sketch World!

Thinking of You

Yes, I'm still obsessed with MME Stella and Rose.  *sigh*  What can I say? It makes me happy.
See that beautiful flower?  My wonderful friend, Kayla, made it for me! (along with 2 others!) Thanks again, Kayla, they are so pretty!  I have met the absolute nicest, most generous and wonderfully creative people through this crafty hobby of mine!  Some I have had the pleasure of meeting in real life, others I cant wait to meet and some I will probably never have the chance to meet, as much as I would like to.  I love that this hobby makes us friends.  :)

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
