Merry Monday #83, Freshly Made Sketches #112, SAS4K & OWH

I have three cards today, yes 3!  I first have to apologize for the photos of my cards:(  They aren’t actually photos at all, I had to scan them:(  They look lifeless and cold to me:(  I used to scan all my cards, then I started taking photos, wow, what a difference! This scanner must not be very good because the scans look washed out in areas.  I’m very disappointed:(    My camera has turned up missing for some reason.  There are quite a few people in my apartment this week, but my grandson may have put it somewhere.  I’ll have everyone look tomorrow.

Anyway…..lets get to some cards! 🙂  My first card I will be entering in both Merry Monday #83, and Freshly Made Sketches #112.  Here is the info for Merry  Monday:

MM New Look Sketches-016Here’s the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #112

FMS Final 112-001I used the theme from Merry Monday and the sketch from Freshly Made:

Half-fold Card1I’m sorry, it looks so much better in hand:(  All products for this card are Stampin’ Up!  First I used Stampin’ Up! digital stripe paper in Chocolate Chip, on top of that I used some Chocolate Chip cardstock.  The mittens are a Stampin’ Up! punch, (ooops, I used red star paper from Doodle Pantry).  The sentiment is from the stamp set, Snow Swirled.   This card will be sent to Send A Smile 4 Kids🙂

Next I have another card that will be sent to Send A Smile 4 Kids🙂

Half-fold Card2I’m so sad, what a terrible scan:(  Anyway…I used a snowy embossing folder, on top of that I used Stampin’ Up! Lucky Limeade cardstock, and an image and sentiment from Fred She Said, both from the kit Emma The Hugger – Snowman Edition.  I also used Spellbinders dies. This card will  also be going to Send A Smile 4 Kids🙂

My last card will be going to Operation Write Home:

Half-fold Card3This is also a Fred She Said image, this one is simply called Pine Trees.  There are 3 different versions, I love them all! 🙂  Christmas has been sent already for Operation Write Home, this is a Winter Love card:)  The background and accent color is by Stampin’ Up!, Garden Green, my favorite green cardstock!  I used a misc. rubber stamp, and an embossing folder gifted to me:)  The folder is snowflakes and swirls if you can’t make it out (darn scanner).

Thanks for coming by today! 🙂  I hope to get more time to make cards very soon, see you then:)

    They’re all lovely. My favourite is the one with the trees. 🙂

  5. I love those starry mittens, Janet Kay! I regret not getting that punch last year. The second card has that sweet image that I love and the third card is gorgeous with the pine tree scene! I love how the embossing paper makes me think of swirling snow! Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday!
