Congrats - {SSSC265}

Well hello there!  Thanks for popping in!  It's time for a new Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge
I'm in graduation mode here at our house since my daughter is a senior this year (how did that happen? sniff sniff. Kids grow up way too fast).  Anyhoo, her school colors are black and gold and I know I'll be needing some graduation cards for some of her friends parties and I'll also be selling some graduation cards and tags in my shop.  I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Enclosed: Graduate along with the coordinating die.  I started out with a black card base, then added a stamped summer sun panel down the middle.  The graduation hat was die cut twice from textured black cardstock with the top of the hat being popped up after adding a black brad and the tassel.


Hope you have a wonderful day!

Happy Mother's Day - {C4C282}

Hello friends!  It's the third Saturday of the month over at the Crazy-4-Challenges site and time for a sketch challenge.  I designed the sketch below for this week's challenge and hope you'll join in and play along.
For my card, I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Garden Grace to create a Mother's Day card.  I started out with a white card base, then added an embossed center panel of aqua mist.  Next I added my sentiment banner and stamped and die cut floral piece.  I stamped the outline of the leaves in tropical teal and the inside in aqua mist and for the roses, I stamped the outline in scarlet jewel and the insides in rose red (su).  I added some red Stickles to the centers of the roses for a little sparkle and popped the whole image up using foam tape.
Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has created:

PS For any who are interested, I've reopened my Etsy shop.  You can click on the link here or find the link to my Etsy shop in the sidebar of my blog.  I'll be updating and adding new items to my shop weekly.  Thank you!

A Very Happy Birthday - {SSSC264}

 Good morning!  I hope you're ready for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, Karen has fun and edgy sketch for all of us to play with.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Ruby Rose along with the coordinating die to create a birthday card.  Spring and summer are busy times for birthdays in our family and I like to stock up.  I went with some vibrant colors for my color scheme, I used royal velvet, raspberry fizz and limeade ice.

Have a great day!

Thank You - {SSSC263}

 Happy Easter!  Are you ready for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge?
 I decided to go with a card that had the look of spring for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch.  I used an old PTI favorite of mine Garden Variety and use the pretty tulips from Bitty Bouquets to create a thank you card.  I used the Picnic Plaid impressions plate on the bashful blue background, a banner of daffodil delight, a strip of yellow gingham and several die cut and stamped tulip bouquets to fill my watering can.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy this blessed holiday.
