Freshly Made Sketches #304 & SAS4Kids

Thanks for coming back to visit, I’m excited to be here today! 🙂  It’s been a long week with my 3 year old granddaughter visiting with her brother 6.  They don’t get along very well, so there’s been a lot of arguing 😦  Grandchildren are so strange, they just don’t get that grandma has enough love for all of them!

So here’s what is going on today, believe it or not, I actually asked for another granddaughter to visit and keep the 3 year old busy, so as I’m trying to write this blog, I have three kids running around and hubby has gone to work some overtime!  I know, glutton for punishment! 😉

I have a card to share and I also have a bunch of cards from donors to share, so I hope you have time to stick around! 🙂

First, I have a card that I will share with Freshly Made Sketches #304. Then I will also share it over on the Send A Smile 4 Kids challenge blog.  You can also make a card and share with either or both of these challenges! 🙂  Here is the sketch for this week:

FMS Final 304-001

And here is my card:

For this card I used all Stampin’ Up! products.  Everything is in the new holiday catalog that you can find on this page, top right.  You can contact me if you would like to order anything 🙂  The background paper is the only thing that is retired, it’s Motley Monsters.

The word paper, the cat and the hat all come from the new Spooky Night paper.

The stamp set, Spooky Cat, comes in a bundle with the cat punch.  I cut the cat out of the paper with the punch.  I cut a strip of the worded paper, and then I fussy cut one of the hats out of the paper. I used a Stampin’ Up! punch to cut my So Saffron moon and then one of the Layering Circle Framelits to cut the back circle.  This card was a lot of fun to make, and I’m hoping one of our SAS4K children will love it! 🙂  Here’s a look at the set:

Ok, enough about me, now on to my guests! 🙂

First up is Donna Wakefield from IN 🙂

Thanks Donna for these great cards!  I’m sure the kids will enjoy them and have lots of fun showing them off! 🙂  Donna has also used a number of Stampin’ Up! products 🙂  I know for sure I will be using that cute scarecrow! 🙂

Next is Barbara Roe of CA 🙂

Ok, the first two are holiday cards, but I love them so much I have to share! 🙂  I also love the turkey, same image, two totally different cards! 🙂

I love when the same papers or images are used to create different cards! 😉

Thank you Barbara, I love your papers and images, these will be loved throughout the season or even longer! 🙂

Lastly I have Lisa Simokaitis who lives not too far from me here in IL 🙂  Look closely at Lisa’s cards, these are one of the best uses of stickers, 3D stickers, and 3D embellishments I’ve ever seen! 🙂

Thank you Lisa, these are wonderful cards for Halloween and Thanksgiving! 🙂  I don’t often get a lot of Thanksgiving cards so these are a real treat 🙂

Thank you all of my team donors, you’ve all done a wonderful job of expressing yourselves for our kids! 🙂  I don’t think I can ever thank you enough for all your hard work and dedication! 🙂  It may seem small in the light of current events, but you are making a difference in a child’s life, be proud! 🙂

Thank you to any and all of you who have taken the time to look through my post! 🙂  You’re welcome to join us on our mission or just pass through and get inspiration! 🙂  If you have time, take a look at the Freshly Made Sketches blog, and also the SAS4Kids blog! 🙂

    Janet, your card is SOOOO neat!!! I love how you did the cat/hat out of the patterned paper, and the whole layout is awesome! Thank you for featuring the other cardmakers’ creations, too. Wonderful cards! 🙂 ~ Andrea
