Freshly Made Sketches #308 & SAS4Kids

OMGoodness, it’s been too long again! 😦  I thought when school started it would calm down here……not so much 😉  But, I made a card!  Big laugh for those of you who send in cards for my hospitals!   Yes, I made one card! lol  And I’m going to enter that card at Freshly Made Sketches #308.  Here’s their sketch 🙂

FMS Final 308-001

Those of you who know me, know that I stick pretty close to the sketch, so here’s my card:


Everything on this card is Stampin’ Up!  Almost everything is from the new Holiday catalog that you can see here on my page, upper right.  The sentiment is from an older set, but still Stampin’ Up!  I used the new Christmas Quilt Stamp set, Quilt Builder Framelits Dies, Quilted Christmas 6×6 Designer Series Paper, Stitched Felt Embellishments and the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Quite a mouthful, but I can hardly wait to use it for other occasions than Christmas!  Also used is Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green Cardstock, and one of the sheets from the Designer paper stack.  I hope you like it 🙂

Now, on to my guests! 🙂  First I have Janelle Klapperich of SD 🙂

Thank you Janelle for these great Halloween cards and I love the Dinos! 🙂

Next, I have Andrea La Vigne of TX, who has a blog of her own that you can see here 🙂

Ok, the last one on the right, is because I just thought they were so darn cute! 🙂  Not for Halloween, just because 😉  Thank you Andrea for these wonderful cards, these are sure to please! 🙂

Last is Lillian Abrams from MI 🙂  Lillian says she has a friend who colored a lot of the cards and then she put them together, great job ladies! 🙂  Now this is a set up to get you in the mood for……..Christmas! 🙂

Thank you Lillian and your friend for these wonderful cards! 🙂  Look at all the girls cards, we need some boy cards 😉  Boy images are so hard to find 😦  Although I’m sure they would like Santa and the snowmen! 🙂

Thank you ladies for all your effort and dedication! 🙂  You make the world kids live in a better place! 🙂

Thank you all for coming to visit today, I hope you found some inspiration, and had some fun! 🙂  I appreciate every one of you, even if you don’t make cards! 🙂

I hope to see you again! 🙂

    Very nice variety! Scarecrow & rooting for you sentiments on Andrea’s cards made me chuckle, so I’m sure they’ll also be well loved by the kids! Great job!!! Janet, your card is so professional looking! WOW!!! And what a great idea to have a friend color in images for you, Lillian! Janelle, I like how your cards are cute & not scary! Way to go, ladies!!! Thanks for the inspiration!!!

  2. Thank you, Holly, for always leaving such great comments! 🙂 I appreciate it and I’m sure the other card makers do too! 🙂

    Awesome card, Janet!!! Love the quilted look you got, and the clean color scheme. Thank you for featuring my cards, as well! Love Lilian’s & Janelle’s cards also. I’ll be working on holiday cards for you, and try to get some boy cards in–especially for teens. You’re right–those are so hard to find images for! Take care, and have a great day! ~ Andrea

    • Hi Andrea, it was a pleasure to share your cards 🙂 I look forward to your holiday cards! 🙂 I wish I could make artwork, but I can barely color 😦 Let me know if you find a good source 🙂
