Paper Jewels Monday and VSD #1

So the hardest part of this challenge was taking the picture. LOL!!!! So below you will find 3 pictures I took trying to capture this fun challenge card.
My girl April challenged us during our VSD to create a card using acetate. I inked this cute image from Paper Jewels (C.C. Designs) a few weeks ago just waiting to use her.
This was a really fun, easy challenge. I loved it and will be using acetate again for a card. Thank you April!!
Make sure you check out Paper Jewels to grab up this fun, precious image.

VSD #4 Challenge #2

This weekend the blog group I'm in is having a VSD (virtual stamping day.) Instead of just one day, we are having it Saturday and Sunday.
I had a VERY LONG day today so it felt good to come home and have some card making therapy.

Our #2 challenge for the VSD was hosted by our girl Melina. Her challenge is to :
1. Make a card/project using as many of the colors listed (Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Old Olive, Basic gray, Very Vanilla) as possible. Get as close as you can. It doesn't have to be the exact SU! color. (which is a good thing because I did not have all of the SU! colors!!)
2. Make your project masculine
3. Use pewter or silver embellishments.

Here is my creation:

Dragon Luck

Hello and welcome to another Paper Jewels Monday. I am so in love with these dragon images from Sweet Pea stamps. They can be found at Paper Jewels. My 4 year old was very insistent on having his own images to color so this little guy has been inked up a lot already and I have only had him for about a week.
As you can see this card was created as a Father's Day card. I created it using

SCS Sketch SC284.


Have a wonderful Monday!!!

Blog Group and Critter Sketch Challenge

The blog group I'm in host bi-weekly challenges and this weeks was hosted by Jennifer. Jennifer is a super awesome crafter and gave us a great challenge this week. We were to create a Christmas card using the colors real red, bermuda bay & kraft; which is also SCS CC272. I'm still building my SU! inventory so I did not have the exact colors so I matched them the best I could.
Secondly I created this card using a sketch from the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog. This is a weekly challenge blog. This weeks challenge was the sketch below and also to add ribbon to your creation.
The image I used is from D.R.S.

This was also created for:
Lexi's Creations - Something old (my image is an older image I have had in stock for quiet some time and so is my ribbon)

Thank You!!

My nights lately have been so short that I have hardly had the time to fit anything extra in. That includes crafting!!! So, I was very excited to craft up a card lastnight. I did not craft it for any challenges, I was happy just to get it created. I will give a plug to my girl Jenny at Paper Jewels which is where you can find this cute Bildmalarna image. The link to her store is on my left sidebar.
Have a great week!!!

Sketch Layout

In August I received a really neat sketch layout page kit from a secret sister on SCS. She pre-cut all the pieces and provided me with a really easy layout to follow. So I decided to finally put them to use for my boys pictures.

Farm Show

Hello, I really enjoyed my holiday weekend. Not only did I get an extra day to spend with my boys but I got a lot done around my house, spent some wonderful quality time with family and crafted!!!!
On Sunday night I got 4 scrapbook pages. These two pages being 2 of the 4. These pictures are from the Farm Show that is held every year in Harrisburg, PA. We don't make an adventure of it every year but in 2009 we did.
