Bundles of hearts - TMS #369


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  

My card is a sweet one today.  At least in my opinion. ;)


Don't you agree that this little guy is just adorable???   He's Bundle of Hearts from Crafty Sentiments.  He's fussy cut then attached to a Spellbinders Standard Circle and Petite Scalloped Circle.  The main panel is embossed with Darice Dot Background.  All my paper is from my scrap box.  The little charm was out of its pkg, so I don't know where it came from.  Here's a close up...



My image was from our sponsor for this week... Crafty Sentiments!  The prize is 3 digis of the winners choice.  They have some sweet, sweet images!!! 


 
Here's our sketch for the week...

Christmas skates


It's been awhile since I made a card just to play along with some challenges, but the timing of this was perfect.  I've been going through my stash and making note of things that I have not used yet or have not used in a very long time.  This card was made with a set that I've only used one piece out of until now...


Our family loves to skate!!!  And my girls have outgrown their skates, so... :)

My DP is from my stash but I have no idea who made it.  The bottom piece was embossed using Darice Dot Background. The sparkly snowflakes are from Hobby Lobby.  My image and sentiment are Simon Says Stamp Snow Gear and matching die set Winter Gear.

Challenges...
Simon Says Stamp Monday - Stamp It (no digi and they'd love to see SSS Exclusive products... my stamps and die are)
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - Stamp It (they'd love to see SSS Exclusive products... my stamps and die are)
Brown Sugar #215 - anything goes

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Penguin wishes - CCC #40


Let me start off by saying that my thoughts and prayers are still with the families of the victims of the terrible terrorist acts committed on this day 15 yrs ago!!


 ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


My card for Christmas Card Challenges follows our optional challenge... this week it's a word prompt  "Christmas lights."


My image is Sweet 'n' Sassy Stamps Pippin's Christmas Lights Digital Stamp and colored with Spectrum Noir markers.  My paper is AC Let It Snow.  (The torn piece was from my scrap box.)  The ribbon is AC.  My sentiment is Momenta Stamps and embossed with white embossing powder.  My image is cut out using Spellbinders Standard Circles and Petite Scalloped Circles.  Some hemp twine and a snowflake brad finished it off.

Here's a close-up of the lights that I added Glossy Accents to.  I also used my Versamark pen and embossed the hat since I don't have a snow marker.  (It's on my wishlist!) *I could not get my Glossy Accents to work last week, but I persevered and voilá!  Success! :)  But now I see I missed a couple! :/ 


As I said, our optional word prompt is Christmas Lights...


Please come play along!!   After all, it's only 105 days until Christmas!!!!!  :)

Challenges...
ABC Christmas - R for rip it
A Snowflake Promise #28 - anything goes


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Musical Merry Christmas - CCC #39


I love Christmas!  The special time set aside to celebrate Christ's birth... our Saviour was born to die so that I might live!   One of the blessings of Christmas time is Christmas Carols!!  {It is also true that at our house, you just might hear Christmas Carols throughout the whole year. :)  And we all are singing along!}   A few weeks ago, I got a new die... music notes!!  :)  I love it and will be using it a lot on my Christmas cards!


My wonderful new die is Memory Box Music Virtuoso.  The other bits are from a Memory Box Snowflake Tree that I ripped apart.  My image and sentiment are French Horn Color Plus from Doodle Pantry.  They are cut with Spellbinders Standard Circles, Spellbinders Labels 35, and Spellbinders Petite Ovals.  My DP is Graphic 45 A Christmas Carol.  I made a double bow with a scrap of ribbon.  The edges are chalked.

You might have guessed that our challenge today at Christmas Card Challenges has the optional photo inspiration... music notes!! 



Challenges...
ABC Christmas - R is for rip it (I ripped apart my die cut-hope that counts)
12 Months of Christmas #21 - anything goes or optional theme (I did AG)
jingle belles  JB:16:18 - "Hark the Herals Angels Sing" (music)
