Another challenge

Hello friends

    Yes, me again.  LOL  Hope all is well.  So, you all know how I love sketches.   
Well I just made another card for Graphicats.  The challenge this time is to choose 
any of the older sketches and create something.  I chose sketch #8.  
I've done a few but not this one, so I took it as a challenge.   Cheri is also having a DT call.  Which means you can just do the sketch or you can do the sketch and enter it.  I want to do both.  So, wish me luck.  :-)

Well here is sketch #8...

and here is my card...

The paper that I used is MME "Breeze".  I picked it up at Michael's.  All the flowers are 
from IAM.  A nice juicy order that I placed and received just on time to make this card.
Everything else is from my stash.   

Have a great week everyone :-)

Uptown Sophie

Hello there,

So how was your Thanksgiving?  Hubby and I drove to Florida.  Long, long drive.  15 hours!!  But, we made it safe and we had a good time with his family.  Now I'm back home.  And all I can say is home, sweet home!  :-)  I hope you all had a beautiful day with your family also.

Guess what?   Sweet Nothings Stamp has a challenge for the month of November.  And the challenge is to use this palette...

I found a paper pad that had the perfect colors.  It's the 6 x 6  "Little black dress" by Basic Grey.  
Lucky me!!!  I also got the digi Uptown Sophie free from them in the month of November.                 So I made a birthday card for my sister Yvonne.  And ta-da...  

I used some lace, trim, a button and a heart from my stash.  The one big flower is from IAR.  I used
5 petals of white and I sprayed them with "Gregarious Grey" from Lindys stamp gang.  I found the bigger metal at Michaels.  It's call "Metal".  The 17 is from Tim Holtz and how perfect that my sister's birthday was on the 17th.  I love when things work out like that.  I am also entering this for another challenge with Latinas en America.  There challenge is to use 3 different papers.  They are an awesome group too.  You should visit us there also.

Well I hope you like it and that you did have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your love ones.
See you soon!!

Fall Blog Hop

Hello my crafty friends.

Welcome to our Thanksgiving/Fall Hop.  Our pride in our den at "Just a few friendz"  have all been busy creating up a festive feast for you this Thanksgiving.  We hope to inspire you all to create a little something to celebrate with over Thanksgiving.  Our challenge and theme this month was to create something for the home in Fall or Thanks Giving colors.  So I decided to make a centerpiece for the table.  Something that you can change up a little.  I show you how it looks with a pumpkin and then with a candle.  You can add anything you want.  I also created a banner that says THANKS.  While prowling around I found one of my favorites paper pads.  K & Company!  Tim Coffey's Halloween and Fall paper.  Got to love it.  Here is the link to my You Tube in case you want to check out the details.  I'm actually happy the way they came out.

Thank you very much for pouncing by and hopping along with us.  Please go to Jules Blog next and see what she's created.  And
if you started here.  Go to Elsa's blog first.  I will add the line up below.  Leave them some love and comments.  Once again thanks for coming by.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

Me again

Hello again!!

I know what you're thinking... another one LOL  Yes, I can't help it I love doing sketches.  And Graphicats has another one this week.  It's sketch #19 and it looks like this....

Looks tempting right?   Here is a card I made.  I have 3 birthdays this month,  so one of them 
is getting this card  :-)

The reason I choose these colors is because Latinas en America is also having 
a challenge 
and their challenge is to make some thing using brown and white.  

The paper I used is from My minds Eye and it's the "fine and dandy".  The stamp is from C.C. Designs.  Her name is Cupcake Emma.  I purchase her at Not 2 Shabby zibbet store.  And you  know I love my Fanciful Flourish, so I added that.  The flowers are collection and the lace flower I had in my stash but it looks just like the design on the paper.  So I thought it was perfect.

I hope you like the card and I hope you're having a wonderful day.

November Challenge

Hello my crafty friends.

Can you believe it's November already.  Wow, time flies.  Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is around the corner.  I  love Thanksgiving!  Good food, friends, family and football is you watch it.  Most of all it reminds me of how grateful I am to be bless with everything and everyone around me.

But anyway.... I am here today because Graphic 45 is having a contest.  All you have to do is make a Thank You card using their products and post it on their Facebook page.  That's it. :-)  Oh yeah, make sure you label it "November Challenge".

And here is my card...

I used their Bird Song collection.  I fussy cut the lanters and fan from the paper collection.  The wooden thank you is from Jillibean.  Flower is from Wild orchids and some seam binding.  I also used a mini Fanciful Flourish, which I out lined with my gelly roll "clear star" pen.  You can't really see it but it glimmers.  Looks very pretty.  And the charm is from my sweet friend DorothySo what do you think?

I hope you enter the contest too.  They will choose two winners!!
You and me right???  LOL

Thank care and be safe
