Merry Monday

Sorry it has been awhile since I posted a card. Life is kind of busy right now:-)

I did find time to play along with the Merry Monday Christmas Card Club.
Here is the challenge this week.


Here is my card




I had fun coloring this guy.

More soon 🙂


Thinking of you

This card was made using The Friday Mashup as inspiration.

This weeks challenge was:

Create a “Thinking of you or condolence card.”
Create a card/cards and “Donate it to a Charity or Organization of your choice.”
Or Mash it Up and create a “Thinking of you/Condolence Card and donate it to H.A.N.D.S via Heidi.”

I’m doing the Mashup this time. I made a sympathy card. I left the front blank of sentiment and added it to the inside. I will be sending it to Heidi for H.A.N.D.S I used retired Stampin Up designer paper and a retired stamp. I really like this stamp set!

Here is my card




Trick or Treat

Thought I’d take a break from Christmas cards and make a Halloween card.

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches # 103 for inspiration.

Here is the sketch:


My card




With envelope


I had fun making this card. I usually don’t do Halloween cards, but thought I’d give it a try this year. I love the ribbon! Such fun.

Merry Mojo

Sorry I’ve been MIA. My husband and I took a car trip at the beginning of the week (more on that in another post) and I’ve had a hard time getting back in the swing of things.

I did find some time to do a couple of challenges. I combined Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge and Mojo Monday #310 ( hence the name of this post LOL)

The inspiration for Merry Monday was this picture


I also used the sketch from Mojo Monday. Here is the sketch.


And now my card:


The front. I kind of stretched it with the wood grain part of the challenge. I’m counting the tree trunk.


The inside


With envelope

More later 🙂

Witch’s Hat

I made a card use a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I really liked the sketch this week. I can see me using this sketch a lot in the future.

Here is the sketch


Here is my card




And with envelope


Joyful Christmas

I have another Christmas card to show you. (You will probably be seeing a lot of Christmas cards for a while. I usually try to make mine all year long, but with my mojo gone I’m behind)

I used 2 challenges for the inspiration for this card.

The first challenge was from Always Playing with Paper’s Merry Monday Christmas Card Club # 73 the challenge was to make a Christmas card using “Red, green and Kraft on your card with a choice of ribbon, twine or burlap.

The second challenge was Mojo Monday’s sketch #309

Here is the sketch


Now here is my card





With envelope


More to come 🙂

Project 365: Day 38

What a difference a few days make. This is the same sunflower I posted before, but is open a lot more.


Project 365: Day 37

Today we hd a major hail/rain storm. It was so cool to sit on the front porch and listen to it. The hail was the size of a pea.


Another card

Well I guess the mojo is starting to come back because I have another card done today.
Like I said I’m trying to play along with blog challenges and right now they are coming due about the same time. Will try to space them out better in the future LOL

This card is for Crazy 4 Challenges (C4C201) The challenge was to use buttons and bows.

So here is my card


The inside


And here is a picture with the stamped envelope


I usually try to stamp my envelopes and line them. ( unless I make them of course)

Everything I used was Stampin Up

Fall Card

Here is a fall card made for the Paper Players challenge. The challenge was called “Falling for You” create a fall-themed card. Unfortunately I missed the deadline by 5 minutes. Oh well, at least I got a card done!


Here is the inside. I didn’t stamp the sentiment yet, going to wait to see what I use the card for.


I also stamped the envelope and lined it.
