Birthday Cake!

Good morning.  Today is another wonderful day for a sketch challenge over at Sketch~N~Scrap. I had fun with this one.  I made a birthday card since my girlfriends birthday just past, it was perfect.

Here is the sketch for your inspiration

Here is my card

And I also decorated the inside.  I like adding a little extra...

All that's left is writing a personal message and giving it away.  That's the best thing about making cards, giving them away! Don't you agree?

Time With You FMS279

I'm loving the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. Once I decided on an image I wanted to use it came together quite fast.  I even got some coloring in!  This sketch has so many different options, you could create a multitude of different cards all using it!

Here is my card.  I kept the color pallet pretty simple and didn't use any patterned paper since I knew I was going to be coloring the image in.  I did use an embossing folder on the yellow cardstock to add some depth and dimention.

Supplies: stamps ~ Unity, carstock, embossing folder and pearls ~ Stampin' Up!

Thank You Try Stampin' On Tuesday Challenge #313

Good morning! I have been wanting to play in my scrap room for some time now and I finally have a couple of days with no work.  I'm fighting some sort of bug but it's not going to stop me!  I saw this cute sketch over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday and just had to give it a shot.

I did change it up a tad but I wanted to use a stamp set that I've not used before, and truth be told not sure I'll be able to figure out other uses for it.  I really love it though and I know it has so many options, I just need to spend time to figure them out. I also went a little out of my comfort zone with using the ribbon.  I'm not a huge fan of ribbon, but again, I have tons of it!! Gotta use it up!

Supplies: cardstock ~ Stampin' Up!, ribbon, stamp set, ink and patterned paper ~ The Stamps of Life

Hello again! I've been a little MIA this past few weeks.  Lots going on and just not enough days in the month.  Here is my layout for the Sketch~N~Scrap March 15th layout sketch. I chose to do a two page spread as I had way to many photos of my son playing golf lol.  I just couldn't choose three!!

Here is the sketch for inspiration

Here is what I came up with.  I used the title on my second page to help it flow from one to the other better.  I used mostly paper embellishments on this layout and just a few metal.
