Sweet Sixteen

 Using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches to create a 16th birthday card for my grandson.



Using stamps from Gina K, Hero Arts, Altenew and unknown number stamps.
Stamped the gradient circle in Memento London Fog and stamped the 16 in Hero Arts Red Royal.  Stamped the sentiment across circle in Versafine Onyx Black.  Stamped and colored the basketball and shoes with alcohol markers and fussy cut.  Layered onto a red card base.

Do you think he will like it!  Thanks for stopping by for a closer look!

Ho Ho Ho

 Fun Sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and I had to play along.




I went with a mini slimline design and stamped the gingham from Lawn Fawn in green.  Stamped an old Gina K Ribbon Stripes in red.  The sentiment is an unknown from my Christmas stash stamped in black and colored in with a red marker and die cut with a fishtail die.  The Santa hat is from Tim Holtz Crazy Birds accessories.

Crap!

 Making a card for my grandson who just had his tonsils out and thought this Unity set was perfect for him.  The challenge at AAA Cards was perfect for this image.


Stamped the little pile of poo from Unity on kraft and colored with Prismacolor pencils and added s little Nuvo Drops in red on the heart.  Used a black gel pen to darken the eyes and mouth.  Inside says Sending Hugs.

Thanks for dropping by!

'Tis the Season

 Working on Christmas cards and loved the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches!


I think this may also fit the challenge at TIME OUT Challenges




I'm getting into the mini slimlines.  Used a Spellbinders die for the turquoise strip and stamped the sentiment on ivory, trimmed and layered over the die cut strip.  Die cut an ornament, colored the topper with a copper Sharpie, added the little die cut bow and a snowflake punch covered with Stickles.  

Thanks for stopping by for a closer look!

Just Us Girls #610 - Trend Week

 It's time for Trend Week at Just Us Girls and Elizabeth has chosen a very trendy trend for us!  


We have Rachel Davis with us again this week as our November Guest Designer!  Come on over to JUGS to see all of the mini slimline cards by Rachel and the rest of the amazing Design Team!

I have to admit that I was late in joining in on the slimline cards, but I am totally loving them now!  I have been on a baby card kick.  I used Gina K's Oh Baby and an old SU set So Very.  The background is a Tim Holtz stencil and I used a brown fine tip marker to add the thin lines to the plaid.  Stamped the bear, masked and stamped the blocks the fussy cut.  I ended up paper piecing the little bear because he looked too bland.

Come play along with us and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then make you eligible at a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.
