Sketch Challenge

ok so My son and I were walking around in a section of the city and we found this....Thinking we will have to check out at least one movie while we are here...

This card is me trying the Big Shot and embossing the 2 pieces of cardstock.  Think it turned out pretty cool.  The colors are the NEW "in colors"  Love them.  The flower stamp is from a discontinued set,  Hello Again.  Use this one all the time.

This card is from the OWH sketch challenge...having a blast using these....I did one card folling the sketch exactly.  But then decided to flip it...the not being level was driving me crazy the other way :)

Thanks for stopping by....Have a fantastic day!

Sketch Challenge #74

OK...I think Operation Write Home is really trying to get me to go outside my normal box.  The last challenge had a angle and now we have a circle.  O'my word, I had to get out my circle cutter and figure out how to use it. I think it turned out pretty good,  and as always I tweaked the 2nd one .

I am trying (sometimes) to use just Stampin' Up! products and I did hear.  However the stamp set is discontinued.  I only have 14 stamp sets from them and 10 were DC.  Guess it means I will just have to buy more :) 

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a blessed day!

Trying Something New

OWH has these great tutorial's .....It took me a couple days to wrap my fingers around it.  The hard part was deciding what paper to use.  I think I will try something brighter and lighter next time.  I also think I should have embossed the big black flower. Live and learn right? 

Thanks for stopping by....Have a blessed day!

Back to School?!

Over at Operation Write Home they are doing a Back to School challenge.  Funny since it's my sons last day of school.  Loved the challenge! I got to use some school theme items I have had for a couple of moves.  Being in the military and recently moved, I think of everything as which house I was in when I bought this or that.  Big back to school push was when my gonna be 7th grader was in the 1st and 2nd grade. So I have had them awhile...... The more I use the more I get to buy :)

The inside paper is printed with blue lines just like lined paper.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. 
Have a blessed day!

Using Sketches

 I am loving this sketch from OWH Stars and Stamps blog....this last couple of weeks is the first time I have followed sketches.  I have always read about them, just never used them. I would Never normally put a angle on anything.  I am a stairght line kinda girl.  But this sketch makes me just want to make card after card.

I am really loving these cards.  It was so nice having a paper pack and not have to search for things that went together.  These are on the kid side so think I will break out a more mature dsp and see what I can come up with.  Hope you like them.

Wanted to show you all my crazy cat.  This is Goose,  yes like Top Gun :)  If you know that movie your gonna get a laugh, we have a dog named Maverick too.  Anyway, she is not a lovely lap cat but when I'm at my crafting table she is always right next to me.  Laying on my cardstock tote that goes with me to crops. Whatever makes her happy!

Thanks for stopping by.....Hope you all have a blessed day.

Thanksgiving in the summer?

 Operation Write Home has a mid week challenge to do a Thanksgiving card.  I'm thinking it is sooooooooo HOT here in Okinawa, can I possibly get Fall on the brain?  I pulled out the  fall grouping of paper and stared at it yesterday.  Then  I was out driving,  and once again noticed the major difference between here and the states is the power lines.  I'm a suburbia girl....there are no power lines in planned communtities. So the twine (Stampi' Up!) is inspired by the power lines.  Of course I took a picture of power lines to show you but of course now my computer is acting funny and I can't find it.

OWH Sketch Challenge #72

First time I have posted a sketch here :)

I'm  learning "how to's" everyday on blogging and card making now that I have time to experience this wonderful world.
I was so inspired by the other cards that were posted on their blog.  I'm trying to make LOVE cards but not Valentiney (is that a word?) cards.  Thinking this could be sent to a child.

Then I did get pretty lovely with this one.....But the saying was just sitting on my desk so had to use it.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog.

The studio

So I have been working on organizing the room.  I am going to call it the studio since it's my craft room but also where my husband and son play music.  Just seeing what works right now.

I have also been on a mission to make cards for Operation Write Home.  I have the time so I'm a card making fool right now.  Their Blog Hop  was sooooo inspiring so I have been in my sweet room for a couple days now.....and loving every minute of it.

I am a Stampin' Up! demo but very new and mainly for hobby reasons .  So not all cards I put on here are going to be just Stampin' Up! products.  I am trying to use up my stash so I can buy more!!!
