Wagon Load

This is my entry in the Stamp TV Fri. sketch challenge. The challenge was to seperate our background paper. My papers are from JoAnn's, the image is from a swap with my Just Cards group and the sentiment is from a set of stamps I bought at JoAnn's. I used colored pencils to do the image. I think this makes a really nice Thanksgiving card and I am sure one of my friends will love it. Happy crafting, Janet

candy canes

This is my entry in Digi Kitty's Monday challenge and the MoJo Monday sketch challenge. Papers are from JoAnn's, the digi image is the free candy cane image from Digi Kitty. I used gel pens and clear embossing powder to color the image. The sentiment is a $1 stamp from Micheal's. This was a fun card and I like the way the clear embossing powder works on the wet jel pen ink. Happy crafting, Janet

Berry Birthday

This card is my entry in two different challenges. It is the #2 sketch challenge for Nov. on Scrap and Stamp Canada and it is the Whimsie Doodle challenge, something cheerful and summery. I figured strawberries are a summer thing. The image is one of the Whimsie digi's, the paper is from JoAnn's, I used sparkly glue and embossing powder on the green of the strawberry and used pop dots to attach to the card. Flower jewels are in the corners and the saying is a $1 stamp from Micheal's. Enjoy, Janet

Flowers for you

This is my card for one of my Stampers Corner group's Nov. sketch. The flowers were cut on my Cricut, the tag was made with a cuttlebug die, the saying is from a $1 stamp set from Micheal's. I used ribbon from my stash and jewels to finish the card off. Thanks for looking, Janet

Snowballs for sale

Here is my entry in this weeks Simple Doodles pop off the page challenge. It is also my entry in Mercy's Tues sketch challenge. I used my cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder for the background mat. The center image is a Simple Doodles image. I colored the sign with brown colored pencil and heat imbossed the snowballs and snow flakes. Both pieces are matted on black cardstock and attached to a white card. I used blue ribbon and a snowflake brad to complete the card. The center image is attached with pop dots to give the card dimension. Enjoy, Janet

This is my entry in the etsyinspired Sat. challenge. We had to use zoo animals in some way. This is the same sketch as my last card, they are both for a swap exchange on one of my groups. The lion is a cuttlebug die cut, I don't know who makes the grass die cut. Bought it a few years ago and the pkg. is gone. The paper is from JoAnn's and I bought the stamp at a yard sale. This is a great little boy birthday card. Enjoy, Janet

Call It Clan...

This is my entry in the AiFactory Tues. challenge to use chip board. The oval center verse is chipboard. All other papers are from JoAnn's. I use two different cuttlebug embossing folders for the texture in my papers. Enjoy, Janet

Pirate birthday

Final entry for now, this card goes to two challenges on the Paper craft planet, one is the Wed. color challenge the other the Sat. sketch challenge. The colors are turqouise, punpkin pie, real red, and summer sun. This was a cute sketch and color combination to work with. I used one of the images I received on my Just Cards group and made this into a little boys birthday card. I think the colors are really bright and cheerful. Hope you enjoyed my cards for now. Will probably make more tonight. Have a great day everone. Janet

Train in string embroidery

This is my entry in the Sweet shop Sat sketch challenge. The papers are from JoAnn's and Micheal's. I stitched the train using a Stitching cards pattern. Don't remember where I bought the Celebrate tag. Hope you enjoy this card, it is going in a gift packet for a Christmas present. Janet

Happy Birthday

This card is entered into two different challenges. First is the Unscriped Sketches Sat. challenge, second is the Stamp TV card on a card challenge.
All papers are from JoAnn's, I used two sizes of lavender ribbon, one inch circle punches with crystals in the center. The small card on the front has a birthday sentiment inside. Thanks for looking, Janet


This is my entry in the Stamp Something Fri. sketch challenge and the Stamp TV Monday color challenge. The colors were ivory and any green. I used papers from JoAnn's and a $ stamp from Micheal's. The netting came from a swap challenge on my recipe swap group. I don't know where she got it but it is fun to work with. Hope you enjoy seeing my efforts, Janet


Here is my entry in the 2 Redbananas Sunday sketch challenge. I went with pretty orange and yellow colors, used two different cuttlebug embossing folders, silk flowers and brads to make the card. Thanks for looking, Janet


I am back to work on my cards, had a great time at the Craft Retreat, did 39 scrapbook pages. Just have a little journaling left on a few of them and they will go into the albums. Worked on cards last night so here is the first one. It is for the Card Patterns Sat. sketch challenge. Papers are from JoAnn's, used a punch for the squares and an image I received from one of the ladies in my Just Cards group. Enjoy, Janet
