Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge

Well, I finally found some time to spend in my craft room today, creating some cards and playing with my new Cricut!! I got it on sale for $69.99 at Michael's on Friday!! I was soooo excited because I thought they were marked down for 97.99 and then when I got to the register it came up as 69.99! I love it when I can get a really good deal. Any way...I thought I would share two cards today that I made for the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge this week. The first card didn't really turn out as good as I was hoping so I made a second card. Love both stamp sets (by Sweet N Sassy) The DP on the first card is by American Crafts and the second is by K&Company. Hope everyone is getting ready for Christmas! It will be here before you can turn around!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hope everyone is stuffed with Turkey and dressing and is feeling extremely blessed (I know I am!) Just wanted to do a short post tonight to tell you about a neat site that has free digi images every Wednesday. She is also giving away some blog candy. Check the site out here. She has some very cute digital images. Well, I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and don't spend too much money on Black Friday!

Mojo Monday

Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving. I've been running around all day trying to get things coordinated. It takes lots of planning! In the mix of the craziness, I did get a chance to play along with Mojo Monday Sketch challenge. Here is the sketch. The DP is K&Company, ribbon is from American Crafts, bakers twine and punch are from Martha Stewart. The digi was another freebie, but I can't recall the company:( Sorry! If I can figure that out, I will post it. Hope everyone has had a happy Monday and is getting that Turkey thawed out in time for the big day. Thanks for stopping by!

I decided to make a card for the Sweet Stop Sketch challenge over at Sweet N Sassy Stamps. If you've never visited their store, I encourage you to check them out...they have some really adorable stamps and digi's. The challenge this week is to use their sketch along with some stitching on the card. Here is my version. The sentiment stamp is from Inkadinkado. I can't remember where I got the little reindeer digi (he was a freebie)...when I figure that out, I will post that info here. The DP is from DCWV "Holiday Stack", the border punch is Martha Stewart, and the ribbon is from Michael's. The snowflake layered punch is from McGill and I used the Gelly Roll clear star pens to add some sparkle to the snowflake, the sentiment and to the hearts on the reindeer. This was a really fun sketch and challenge. Enjoy!

I wanted to share this cute card today that I made for a friend's birthday. I used the Gelly Roll pens by Sakura (clear star) to accent my flower, leaf and sentiment stamps. Sentiment stamp is Studio G, and the flower and leaf stamps are acrylic stamps by Sandylion. The stickers are some that came in a random kit (not sure of the company?) Die cut label is Spellbinders nestie label #8 set. Papers and cardstock are from my scrap stash. Hope everyone is having a fun Saturday. I just got home from my weekly shopping trip to Michael's with my mom! (had a 50% coupon that had to be used! lol:) Thanks for stopping by "stamin' alley" today!

Just wanted to add these snowflake cards for the KLSNS snowflake challenge.

Sweet n sassy freebie

Spent some quality time making cards with my mom this afternoon. She's been recovering from recent surgery and was starting to feel a little better this afternoon. Here is the card that I made using a digi freebie from Sweet N Sassy. Cute and cuddly and perfect for a baby card that I was needing for a friend. Hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday! Thanks for stopping by!
