Saturday Sketch Challenge 5/28

Thank you for all the prayers and good thoughts for my sister.  She had her surgery yesterday and had NO lymph node involvement so we are hoping she will not have to undergo Chemo treatments.

I loved this week's sketch!  It was very easy to work with.  You can see what all the other Designers for our weekly challenge have done over at the UDI Blog or just follow the link at the bottom of my post to "skip" on to the next designer.

This is the weekend when we take time to remember all the soldiers who protect our freedom.  So I wanted to say THANK YOU to all enlisted people and their loved ones!!!

Here's this week's sketch:

And here's my card:
I sponged our Love Notes Designer paper with More Mustard.  Isn't it cool how you can change the look of a designer paper just by adding a little color????


Stamps:  Pretty Postage
Ink:  Basic Black, More Mustard
Cardstock:  Basic Black, Love Notes Designer Series Paper
Accessories:  Postage Stamp punch, 1/4" Basic Black grosgrain ribbon

Now skip on over to Tammy's Blog to see what wonderful project she has for us this week!  Have a safe and happy Holiday Weekend!!!!  Remember to hug a soldier and tell them how grateful you are for their service!

Saturday Sketch Challenge 5/21

I'm using the Hope and Strength Set for my Saturday Sketch Challenge this week. This set is dedicated to Breast Cancer Research and for every one of these sets sold, Stampin' Up! donates $2 to a Breast Cancer Foundation.  This set is in the current Mini Catalog.   You can see what the other Designers have done at the UDI Blog or just follow the link at the end of this post to skip to the next Designer's blog.

I'm using this set because it has special meaning this week.  Unfortunately, my sister was diagnosed with Breast Cancer this past Wednesday and will be having surgery next week.  She has been diligent about having her yearly exams so they have caught it early and she has a great prognosis but it's still the "C" word and it's still very scary.  I hope you will keep her in your prayers this coming week!

Here is the sketch for this week:

And here's my card:

Set:  Hope and Strength
Cardstock:  Pretty in Pink Designer Series paper from the Subtles Designers Series Paper Pack, Whisper White
Ink:  Pretty in Pink, Whisper White Craft Ink
Accessories:  Eyelet Border punch, Pretty in Pink 5/8" Satin Ribbon, White detail embossing powder, 1 1/4" circle punch.

Now just skip on over to Alisa's blog to see what awesome creation she has planned for us from way Down Under!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Sick, sick, sick

I have a summer cold that has turned bad on me so no post this Saturday.  I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day.  Remember, you don't have to have a child to give a Mother's love -- any time you make a difference in any child's life, you are giving them the love of a Mother.  As Kathie Hill says:

"It may be an Auntie, a Sister or a Granny to be the one to give a Mother's love,
but no matter who may give it, a Mother's love's a gift
that comes down from the Father up above"

Have a wonderful weekend and go feast your eyes on Tammy's creation for this week!

MDS Monday 5/2

This week's My Digital Studio challenge for Utah Divas International was to create a card using a cupcake.  This was sooooooo easy!  Did you know that My Digital Studio has some cards already made for you?  That's right, all you have to do is add your sentiment and send it on it's way to the printer!!!!  AND you can personalize the inside front of the card as well as the side where the sentiment goes!  For my card today, I used one of the pre-designed Birthday Cards and just added the cupcake, how easy is that?  You can see what the rest of the Designers did HERE.

Here's my card:

To celebrate National Scrapbooking Month we are having some great specials!  You can check them out HERE.  Also, did you know that if you already have a Digital Scrapbooking Software that any My Digital Studio product will work with that?????  How wonderful is that?
