It's Sunday morning and its time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, Karen has given us another great sketch for this week and I hope you'll give it a try! I've been missing in action for most of this last week as far as my blog goes even though I really wanted to have time to post a card before Thanksgiving. Life was just too darn busy between having Thanksgiving at our house and all of the cleaning, grocery shopping and cooking I didn't have a chance. That and my youngest son who had the flu the week before and seemed to be getting better ended up Thanksgiving night with a 103.5 fever in the middle of the night. Never a dull moment here at our house, he has an ear infection and is on antibiotics so hopefully this time he'll get healthy and stay that way. Any whoo I had the top card made for the sketch today and then decided to make another. After venturing out yesterday I was driving along and I saw so many fresh cut Christmas trees on top of cars and trucks that it made me think of the stamp set Loads of Love.
Supplies: (top card) Enjoy Every Moment, Maine Blueberry DSP, Ribbon, Small circle punch, Photo corner punch, Piercer, Pop dots, Button. Colors: Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, Bashful Blue.
Supplies: (bottom card) Loads of Love, Merry Moments DSP, Ribbon, Photo corner punch, Aqua brush. Colors: Chocolate Chip, G
arden Green, Real Red, Going Grey, Basic Grey.

Hello everyone! I don't know about you but I'm a huge sucker for snowmen, when I decorate for Christmas there are snowmen through out our house and a good majority stay out until Valentines Day because they look so wintry. So when I saw this snowman stamp in the stamp set The More the Merrier I knew it would get good use and be fun to stamp with. I tried using some nontraditional colors on this card since it seems that most of the Christmas cards I've been creating are red and green and I actually like this combo.
Supplies: The More the Merrier, Sparkling wheel, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, Scallop edge punch, Piercer, Brads, Ribbon, White pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Pop dots, Aqua brush. Colors: Taken with Teal, Real Red, Kiwi Kiss.
Our youngest son is over the flu and feeling better thank God, thank you for all the well wishes. I'm ready for Thanksgiving here at our house, all day yesterday I cleaned and then finished my grocery shopping so now I just need to keep the house clean until Thursday.

It's Sunday which means its time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Karen has another fun sketch for us today! The card that I have for the sketch uses the stamp Dasher and the Merry Christmas is from the Holidays and Wishes stamp set. The Real Red panel on this card was rolled with the So Swirly wheel using Real Red ink.
So join in on the fun and create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen's blog (The Sweetest Thing) and link your card using Mr. Linky so we can all see your creation.
Happy Birthday to my oldest son Zach, today is his actual birthday even though we celebrated last Sunday! The second half of this last week I was busy taking care of our youngest son who has the flu. I thought maybe we would escape from anyone else in our family getting the flu since less than two weeks ago Zach was down for a week with it but I guess not.

Today's card is for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #113 and uses the stamp set Branch Out which is on the SU dormant list. I had this card ready to post yesterday but for some reason Blogger was giving me trouble unloading my picture. This card is actually very sparkly in real life because every falling snowflake in the main image has Dazzling Diamonds on it. The Bashful Blue panel was stamped with snowflakes from the Christmas Punch stamp set and the Brocade Blue panel was embossed using the Perfect Details Texturz Plate.
Supplies: Branch Out, Christmas Punch, Best Yet, Large oval punch, Scallop oval punch, Dazzling Diamonds, Ribbon, Brads, Perfect Details Texturz Plate, Sponge. Colors: Night of Navy, Brocade Blue, Bashful Blue, Real Red.
