The Character Cafe Blog Hop Contest

Hope everyone is having a blessed Sunday! My family has been sick this weekend with the exception of my 6-year old son (and I pray that he doesn't get this old cold bug!) Despite feeling a little under-the -weather I took the boys to church and left my sick husband in the bed...and I was so glad I did. It is so amazing how just being in church and worshiping the Lord will lift you up even when you are feeling bad. He is truely amazing isn't He?!
This afternoon, I made this cute card for my brother-n-law's belated birthday. We got together this evening to celebrate and even though this image would better suit a little boy, I thought it was perfect with the sentiment that I included on the inside of the card: "You look good for your age, almost human." The sentiment stamps are from Inkadinkado and the image is a freebie from The Character Cafe. I am submitting this card for their 12 Hops of Christmas Blog Hop! Read about it below or visit their store here for more details.
Well, tomorrow is another MONDAY and another day closer to Christmas! Hope everyone is getting all of their decorating and shopping done because it won't be long now! God bless and thanks for stopping by!

The Character Cafe Blog Hop

Hope everyone has had a productive Saturday. I took the kids to see Santa this morning so they could give him their lists and get their pictures taken. I also did some Christmas shopping and got some of my Christmas cards mailed out. I just wanted to post tonight to let you know of the Blog Hop over at the Character Cafe . Check them out and play along to have a chance to win some awesome prizes. I have not had time today to create any new cards, but maybe tomorrow I will get a chance. Hope everyone has a blessed Sunday and a restful Saturday night!

Delightful Sketches

Here is a card I made for my boss's birthday. She has always loved my handmade cards and I know she will just love this fun digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil. The sentiment stamp is by Inkadinkado and the CS is Bazzill. The DP is from my stash of scraps. I used the sketch from this week's challenge over at Delightful Sketches. Please check them out here. They have great sketches and their design team will really inspire you each week! Hope everyone had a great Wednesday! Thanks for checking me out!

Stamp Something Challenge/Peachy Keen Challenge

Well, I guess the creative juices are flowing now! I think I work best at night anyway (not sure what the reason?) I just made this card for the Stamp Something Challenge. Check it out here. I am also entering this into the Peachy Keen Challenge. The stamp is a digi by Degital Delights by Louby Loo. Check them out here (they have really great digi's!) Paper is by American Crafts. Have a wonderful evening (tomorrow is hump day!)

I've had some difficulty the past couple of days with creating. Have you ever had that had plenty of time to work on a project, but nothing seemed to work. Well I finally created this card tonight (I've been home all day today and yesterday with my sick 3 year old little boy.) I used my cuttlebug embossing folders to emboss the burgundy cardstock as well as the angel and star. The Cricut cartridge Joy of the Season was used to cut out the angel and star. The sentiment stamp is by Inkadinkado. I am submitting this card in the Cuttlebug challenge that is running for 2 weeks. I know there is no glitter, but I did use some bling on the star and the card is embossed. Hope everyone has had a blessed day!
