Taylored Expressions Sketch #88

Happy Sunday all! Time for this weeks sketch from Taylored expressions. Just a quick post today as I am going to need to go into the office for a few hours today & get caught up! I would rather go in today, then start the week behind tomorrow :)
I actually got the inspiration for my card from Taylor herself you can see her cute little card

This weeks fun sketch:

Here is my pretty little sparkling card:

I had a bunch of these glittered chipboard snow flakes left over from last year.....thought I would use one up as I just love them :) I used 2 different cuttlebug folders for texture, the bling is also something left over from last year. I punched the tiny snowflakes from white card stock & glittered them too & added pearls from the dollar bin at Michael's. The paper is from SU. I asked my friend if she thought it stupid to put roses on my snowflake....she said it's your card,you can do whatever you want! SO..I did!! ;) That's it for another TE sketch. Now to get around & visit all the other talented crafters who played along......to me it's like a blog hop without all the pressure! After all....that's why I like to do these challenges, You just never know who you will meet!!! :) Hi Terri!!!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Seasons greetings JUG winner week 3!

OK! I found a new color challenge blog and just had to play along....I had to do a really quick one as it is time for me to get out of the craft room & get ready for the week ahead!
These are the colors! Not ones I normally use...that's why I just had to play!!

The challenge comes from Just us girls:

This is my card:

See...told you it was a really quick one! The papers are of course
PTI, The snow flake was punched with a MS punch. The bling is from the dollar spot at Michaels
(that's why I didn't mind using so many)
the ribbon is also from Michaels.
I also used a cuttlebug folder & a nestie tag.
That's it!!! Totally simple & very quick :)
Thanks for today's visit!!!

Had to turn the air on again today! :( So the best thing to do is stay inside & play in my craft room while watching football with the family....sounds like fun huh!!! Most every week I like to play along with Taylors Friday sketch over at Taylored Expressions....always a good one! This week is no exception!!
Here is this weeks sketch:

Here is my fun card:

This was so fun to make!! The cute little 3-D pumpkin was made with 9 scalloped circles. I used SU's scallop punch, folded them in half & stuck them together side to side. all the dot paper is PTI, the orange is DCWV, the green & black are SU. The top of the pumpkin was made with the tip of a nesties Label. The bling is from Michaels. So fun!! I love this sketch!! That is it for another crafty day!! have a fantastic week everyone!!!

Same general design...but now it's a Halloween card! The papers are from a combo of SU & PTI, the DP is DCWV, the stamp set is Pti's Halloween tags set. The velvet spider webs are from our most recent CKC show, and so is the bling. Also used SU scallop punch & a spellbinders die. Very quick & easy & not to scary!! :) perfect for my little nephew who "doesn't the scary Halloween stuff". Well I gusess now I am going to have to call it a weekend! Tomorrow it is back to the real world of work, work, work!! Have a good one!!


Taylored Expressions Sketch #86

Wow!!! can't believe it has been such a long time since my last post! The dental office I work at moved to a new location. New everything! including computer software :( It has been a real challenge but I am hoping the worst is over & things can get back to somewhat normal, whatever that is...LOL!!! It has seriously been weeks since I have even set foot in my craft room!! In order to get the Old mojo moving I chose Taylor's sketch #86 as my first project.
This is the sketch:

Here is my card:

The weather has finally cooled here a bit (Ya HOOOO) so I chose these cute little snowmen for my first subjects. I think they are so cute! they are from Just rite stamps. I was so happy to see some JRS at out local CKC convention this year...I did get to take a day and attend a couple of weeks ago & have been itching to use some of my new stuff!! :) All papers are from SU. I used the snowflake folder from cuttlebug, the felt snowflakes were another CKC purchase, Ribbon is PTI, and the Rhinestones are from Michaels. I also used the SU scallop punch, some nesties, stickles & copic markers. That's it for this one....had so much fun....think I will do another!!! Hope you all are having a fantastic weekend...I have missed visiting....hope to get to that later this evening!!!! See you back real soon!!
