This card is the entry in two challenges: Taylored Expresions sketch challenge and Etsy inspired color challenge. I chose to do something with the pastels and cupcakes. This is a cute card for a girls birthday. I used two different cuttlebug embossing folders, sayings from some of my $ Micheal's stamps, cupcake stamps from Hampton Arts (colored with gel pens and colored pencils) two different circle punches and a little inking on the edges of the verse circles. This is one of my favorites that I made today. Hope you have had a good day, Janet

Candy canes in pastel

This card is my entry in three different challenges, Mercy's sketch challenge, Stamp TV's Fri. color challenge, and Digi Kitty Christmas card challenge. All papers are from JoAnn's, I used my Creative Memories corner punch on the papers, the cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder, gel pens, colored pencils, stickles and gems to make my card. Hope you enjoy my creation, Janet

Peace on Earth

This is my entry in the Midnight Madness sketch challenge and in the Whimsie doodle Wed. challenge. The sketch was really fun to work with, I used my snowflake cuttlebug embossing folder on the red cardstock for my mat. I needed to make a card using a Whimsie digi and snow, so I used the new Peace on Earth digi and put a little snow at the bottom of the image with embossing powder and of course the snowflakes. Enjoy, Janet

Thinking of you

This card is my entry in the MOJO monday sketch challenge and the Stamping Sisters in Christ Sunday challenge. I used two different punches to make the circles, added ribbon, a $ verse from Micheal's and a assortment of papers. This is a cute sketch. Loved working with it. Janet

You are the Best

Here is the first of my cards for today. It is my entry in the Paper Craft Planet Sat. sketch and the Stamp TV Mon. color challenge. Blue and white are the challenge colors, I used two different cuttlebug embossing folders for my card, one print paper, white and blue cardstock, blue foil paper, scallop punch, verse from Micheal's $ bin, silk flowers and gems. Hope you enjoy my efforts, Janet

Wishing you Better

Good morning, this card is doing triple duty. It is entered in the Sweet Shop sketch challenge, the Stamping Sue color challenge (sepia colors) and I am using 2 of the newest Simple Doodles digi images that will be released this week. I have used wall paper as a mat, velvet paper (my sister in law gave it to me) ribbon, pop dots, jewels, colored pencils, gel pen, tan cardstock and a piece of print paper to make this card. Hope you enjoy my creation, Janet

Christmas Warmth

This is my entry in the 2 Red Banana's challenge to make a card that reflects warmth. So I used the new fireplace image from Simple Doodles for the warmth. It is colored with gel pens, embossing powders, and colored pencils. This card also qualifies for the Scrap and Stamp Canada Dec, #1 sketch contest. Hope you enjoy my efforts. I have been away from the computer for a couple of days so am glad to get back with a few cards for everyone to enjoy. Janet

A Toast

This is my entry in the Unscripted sketchs challenge for this week. It is also my Black and Gold Mingle card for my Stampers Corner swap group. I used gold and black paper, gold heat embossing on the verse, my cuttlebug embossing folder on the main mat and gold jewels for accents. Happy Crafting, Janet
