Pink Cat Studio Christmas

Made another Christmas card using a fun image by Pink Cat Studio! (My first time!) Used my new DP by Carta Bella 'Merry and Bright'. Got to participate in Kim's October sketch challenge.

Also wanted to share these 2 simple cards I made for Kris's 'Make a Keiki smile card drive'. I thought I would have time to make more but ended up with only 2. I will start early next time!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you all have a great Halloween! Stay safe out there!

You're TOO Sweet

Wanted to post this card before I miss the deadline again! Finished this card awhile ago but I waited til the last minute since it's a month long challenge! :( Had fun using the cute PI girl and fun DP by Echo Park 'Sweet Day'. Hope you all had a great weekend!

With Sympathy

Yay my 2nd post today! Tried to make this sympathy a little colorful to make it a bit cheerful! :) This is for a friend whose grandma just passed away. :( Used DP by My Mind's Eye Stella Rose. Sentiment by Verve and colored with Copics. Have a great Sunday!

Challenge: Freshly Made Sketches

Let it snow

Hello! Wow, it feels like I have not posted anything for fun in a long time! I've still been crafting though. I think I'm going to have more than one post today since I already miss the deadline for this challenge so I looked for an 'Anything Goes' challenge to enter.

I wanted to do the challenge here but just missed it. Had fun making another Christmas card! DP is My Mind's Eye 12 days of Christmas and sentiment is by Verve. Colored with Copics and snowflakes die by My Favorite Things. Hope everyone's having a great weekend!

Here is my card using the digi called "Mr. Bitty Halloween"...

Got the sketch from here. Made the background using an embossing folder and gingham paper. Hard to tell in the picture but I popped up the image on dimensionals. Love this image!

Wishing you peace, love and joy...

My blog post title is what I stamped in the inside. (AmyR stamp) I'm actually doing 2 posts today...just in case I don't have time to do the other one later. Love making Christmas cards. I realized I like images with presents because it can be used for birthday or Christmas. (Or any other occasion for that matter.) Just trying to make my stamp images more versatile. Colored with Copics and used a snowflake embossing folder for the background. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Challenge: Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge

A gift for you...

Decided to make another Christmas card using a 'never been inked' stamp by Pink Cat Studio! It's so cute that I can't believe I forgot about him! :( Used DP by My Mind's Eye (Winter Wonderland). The sentiment is hard to see in the picture but says 'A gift for you' which I cut out from the DP. Used the sketch from here. Feels like I haven't posted anything I made for fun lately...I've been crafting, just not doing any card challenges right now.  Scrambling making Christmas gifts! But of course it's fun! :) Hope you all had a great Monday and 1st of October!

Lollipop Crafts Challenge #89

Today starts another challenge at Lollipop Crafts! The theme is to make a card/project using both something old and new from your stash. Here's my card...

My 'new' item is the cute Sister Stamps image called 'BFF's'. (Thankful to have received this from my good friend from Hawaii!) And my 'old' item is the DP (Wild Rose Studio 'We love Japan') that I think I had for about 3 years. (That's old to me!) Sentiment is by There She Goes. Used the sketch from here.

Hope you can join us for this fun challenge! Please check out the rest of the DT creations here. Have a wonderful day!
