Happy New Year's Eve!!!!!  I hope you are headed for a year full of Blessings!!!  

For this week's sketch we were to create a background with a repeated image.  I wanted to use one of our new Occasions sets to give you a sneak peek of what you can order beginning January 4th!!!

Here's the sketch:

 And here's my card:


Stamp Set:  Take It to Heart
Cardstock:  Real Red, Whisper White

Saturday Sketch Challenge 12/10

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!!!  We had our office Christmas Party last night at Grace in Ft. Worth.  It is the most beautiful restaurant and we had a private room.  It was soooo much fun and the food was the best!!!!  It's finally getting cold here and I am back among the living after a week of an awful attack of what we call "Cedar Fever" (from the people down Austin way).  I am terribly allergic to cedar and this time of year with all the live trees out I always get an awful sinus infection!!!  Three days in my jammies (one with no cable because our backyard neighbors decided to disconnect us and connect themselves!!!) and I am feeling much better!  Today we have rehearsal for our church choir's annual presentation of the Christmas portion of Handel's Messiah.  We will perform it Sunday evening at Arlington Heights United Methodist Church on Camp Bowie in Ft. Worth at 7pm.  If you love classical music I invite you to attend!!!!!  So now on to my card for the week!  Here's the sketch:

and here's my card:


This card was done entirely with a base of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and paper and embellishments from the Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin' Kit from the Holiday Mini.  It's a quick and easy card which is the best kind of Christmas Card!  I hope you enjoy!

Be sure to check out the links to what all the other Designers have done over at the UDI Blog!

HAPPY WORLD CARDMAKING DAY!!!!!  I am celebrating with  restarting Technique Classes tomorrow!  Everyone was travelling so much and with my sister's Chemo this summer, they got put on hold.  But we'll be starting off with a bang tomorrow!  I used one of the techniques we'll be learning tomorrow on my card for today. 

Our sketch is brought to us by Queen Elizabeth -- Elizabeth Harris that is!!  Elizabeth will be bringing our UDI sketches for the month of October!  Thank you Tammy Fite for designing the September challenges!  Here is Elizabeth's first sketch:

And here's my take on it using the Blesmooshing technique!


Stamps:   French Foliage
Ink:  Cajun Craze
Cardstock:  Crumb Cake
Accessories:  Bleach, Gold Glow Smooch Spritz, 1/8" Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon (Wait, there's no vanilla ribbon on this card!!!  That's right, I dyed it with our Cajun Craze stamp pad!!!), gold brads

UDI Saturday Sketch Challenge 9/24

Ever since I saw the sketch for today, I knew this had to be the card!  I got this cute download called "Spook Central" for MDS last month and I love the papers and embellishments included with it.  The only thing is that the letters that come with it are limited as they are supposed to spell out Spook Central so since there's no "Y", I had to get creative!  I think you get the drift LOL!

  So here's the sketch:

And here's my card!

Tee hee!  I don't know why I'm so into Halloween this year, I guess it's because of all the cute things Stampin' Up! has come out with.  Remember to go check out what the other Divas have done HERE and have a wonderful weekend!

Pumpkin Witch in Disguise!

We made this little pumpkin Sunday at Stamp Camp.  I saw these pumpkins in the store and knew that Many Mustaches needed to be used with them.   What do you think?

I found a witch hat pattern for the cone of the hat and used the large scallop from the Scallop Circle #2 die.  The eyes are made from the 1/2" circle punch and the circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack, the eyelashes are from the Boho Blossoms punch.  I hope you enjoy!!!!

Saturday Sketch Challenge 9/17

Rain!!!  We have rain!!!!!   I made my card last night to the sound of wonderful, soaking rain.  We have SO needed that here.  Hopefully, this will help prevent more of the fires we have been having. 

On to my card for this week.  I love this sketch and I wanted to make these medallions I've been seeing.  They are soooo easy!  They use the Scallop Punch and our new Scoreboard.  We'll be making a Christmas version of these at Stamp Camp on Sunday.  Here's the sketch:

And here's my take on it:


Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock:  Wisteria Wonder, Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper, Whisper White
Ink:  Wisteria Wonder
Accessories:  In Color Designer Brads, Boho Blossoms Punch, 1 3/4" Scallop Punch and 2 3/8" Scallop Punch

Saturday Sketch Challenge 9/10

It's that time of the week!!  Time for the Utah Divas Sketch Challenge!  You can see sketch and links to the rest of the designers over at the UDI blog.  Can I just say, I LOVE this week's sketch?????????  I had so much fun making this card.  I learned a new punch technique from the blog Butternut Sage, it's used thread the black and white ribbon through.  Yes, that is a punch and no, it's not punched all the way through the paper!!!

I was going to link to the video but it's gone so I'll try to explain it.  You just turn your punch upside down and insert your cardstock/paper.  Press very carefully and you will hear it click and then click again and it will have punched the outside edges.  Apply VERY GENTLE pressure until it punches the desired length.  You'll have to push the paper back down to slide it out of the punch, then just lift each side and slide the ribbon under!!!  How cool is that?????? 

Here's the supplies:

Stamp Sets:  Batty for You, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock:  Elegant Eggplant, Frightful Sight Designer Series Paper, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink:  Basic Black, Old Olive
Accessories:  Scallop Square Die, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8' Circle Punch, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch

Before I go, I hope that we will all take a moment, wherever you are in the world, to remember all the people who lost their lives on 9/11.  While this happened in the United States, the World Trade Center was home to businesses all over the world.  Thank you to everyone who was involved in the recovery efforts and Blessings and comfort to all those families effected by this terrible tragedy!

Saturday Sketch Challenge 9/3

OMG!  It's September!!!!   Where are my Christmas cards??????????  Gotta get started soon!  I'll be having some fun classes to capture the memories of the school year, fall decorating, gifts and giving and and fun class after the holidays to make sure you know exactly where your cards are!

Now on to this week's sketch.  Since our beloved Carol is no longer doing the sketches, we have all decided to take a month each to be responsible for the sketches.  Leading the pack is Tammy Fite with this sketch:

You can see what all the designers have done over at the UDI Blog.  Here's my card:

I used My Digital Studio (MDS) to create this card.  Stampin' Up! is having an MDS Designer contest and it is open to Customers and Demonstrators alike and the prize is $400 in Downloads!!!  Isn't that exciting??  So if you have the MDS software, click on the link on the left (in my sidebar) for all the details and if you don't have MDS, just click on the "Shop Now" button and you can purchase it through my Online Store!

I also want to send out prayers for all the people effected by the fires in Palo Pinto County and in Oklahoma City.  My husband's sister and her family escaped with just losing the fence in their neighborhood but hot spots kept flaring up, caught their neighbor's attic on fire and completely destroyed it.  SIL is a teacher and four of her students lost their homes completely.  I hope you all have a safe weekend!!!!!!

MDS Monday 6/27

It's time for MDS Monday!  Our assignment for this week was to do a Summer Fun page.  When I think of Summer, I always think of time spent at my different grandparent's houses.   Each was my favorite in different ways.  Of course, Mama's house had the lure of the lake.  It's located in Lakehills, Texas in the Hill Country outside of San Antonio.  The lake is Medina Lake.  It is beautiful!  Here's my scrapbook page for this week:
