The Friday Mashup #242, Valentines

Hmmm, I was hoping that when I came back, so would the “old” way to add a post.ย  No such luck:(ย  I’m forging ahead with the “new” way to add a blog post, so I hope it goes faster than last time:)

Welcome back! ๐Ÿ™‚ I have another card and I have a guest as well:)ย  So first off, I have my card that I made for the Friday Mashup #242.

fm242

The Mashup Challenge this week is:
  • Create a project for your Valentine.
  • Create a project featuring a Candy image.
  • or Mash it Up!! and create a V-day Candy themed project

aSDC19088

I didn’t take this photo straight on so it looks a little strange, at least to me;)ย  Everything is actually straight and even:)ย  I made this card with Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Grunge (retired), Rose Red & Blushing Bride ink, and a stamp that I know is Stampin’ Up!, but I’m not sure of the set.

The main image is from Fred She Said called Valentine’s Day-Better than Chocolate.ย  Behind the heart, I used Baked Brown Sugar, and the background cardstock is Blushing Bride, both by Stampin’ Up!ย  A little different from me, but I love the finished card! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

My guest today is a repeat sender, Vicki Luebke of IN:)ย  Vicki sent a few Valentine’s in this box, but mostly she sent Winter themed cards:)ย  Because I made a card with Fred She Said today, I’m going to show you her Winter cards because she also used a lot of Fred She Said images:)

All of the Fred She Said images are listing in the shop under Christmas, here is the main link:)

Aren’t these cute?!ย  I love when the same image is used in different ways!ย  This is called Emma the Skating Elf.ย  I also love that she used 4 of the 6 colors available in the set! ๐Ÿ™‚

On the left is Emma the Snow Angel.ย  This was a special request by me for Tracey the shop owner, wasn’t that sweet of her?!ย  I love it! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  On the right is Catchin’ Flakes, this one reminds me of my brother when he was small:)

The image on the left is Hat Tipping Snowman, and the one on the right is Winter Westie.ย  Most of these sets also come with the plain digi that you can color yourself:)ย  Vicki has done a great job with her designs! Even though the snowmen have the same layout, they look very different:)ย  All of these cards are great! Even if they went to kids in the same hospital on the same unit, each child would feel they have a special card!

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

I have a lot of FSS images!ย  I think this is the first image I bought, and it’s still my favorite, this is Emma the Hugger! I, myself, have used this image many times, it just makes me happy! ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a few more from Vicki I’d like to share:)

Vicki does an excellent job of making encouraging cards, and they’re so cute! ๐Ÿ™‚

Aren’t these adorable?!ย  I believe all these images are from Dollar Graphics Depot.ย  All of their images are only one dollar!ย  I love Vicki’s clean and simple designs! ๐Ÿ™‚

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

These are the last images for Vicki today.ย  Both of these images are rubber stamps from Stampin’ Up! (retired).ย  Thank you Vicki for sharing your talents with our kids!ย  All of these cards will be donated to hospitals through Send A Smile 4 Kids! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you to Vicki and all card makers who make and send cards for our kids! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for coming by today, even if you don’t send cards, I hope you’ve gotten some inspiration for your own cards! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Hope to see you again soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

The Friday Mashup #241 & SAS4kids

Once again, I’ve gotten behind:(ย  Once of my card makers challenged me to make a card and post it before the weekend is up.ย  Okay, she said it wasn’t a real challenge, but it got me up and motivated:)

I have a very simple card this week.ย  I have a unit on one of my hospitals for small kids, so this is what I made for the challenge over at the Friday Mashup #241๐Ÿ™‚ย  This card, of course, is for one of my Send A Smile 4 Kids hospitals! ๐Ÿ™‚

FM241

This week’s Mashup Challenge is:ย 
  • Create a project featuring a Monkey or Zoo Animals.
  • or Create a project with a Fancy Folds.
  • or Mash it up! and create a Fancy Folded Project with a Monkey.

aSDC19013

The image on this card came from Doodle Pantry, and is simply called, Funky Sock Monkey. I think this is a great card for small kids, a large cute image and very little that could fall off! ๐Ÿ™‚

I blog with WordPress, it seems I can no longer add my blogs posts the way I used to:(ย  I have to use their new & improved method:(ย  I guess I’m an old fuddy duddy, because I’m not too fond of changes, especially when I’m made it do it! ๐Ÿ˜ฆย  So my posts are going to look a little different….maybe even strange, until I get used to this new version.ย  I hope it doesn’t look too different;)

 

Now on to my guest for today, Donna Wakefield! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Donna is from IN, and has donated quite a few times:)ย  I have some Valentines of hers to share, but first, I want to show you these awesome Star Wars cards she made! ๐Ÿ™‚

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

You’ll have to use some imagination, because the photos do not do them justice!ย  These cards have lots of sparkle and shine! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  The cards on the left has silver stars, and the card on the right has silver words, the top right is a black square with lots of silver sparkle, with a silver star, and the blue paper on the left side of the right card is one that when you tip it around, it changes, really pretty! ๐Ÿ™‚

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

The card on the left has white background paper, but all the design is silver.ย  The Star Wars words are silver and it has some more of the black with silver.ย  The card on the right has the same things going on:)

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

I hate to admit, the only Star Wars movie I’ve ever seen was the first one.ย  Yes, I’m that old! lol These cards have more sparkle and the card on the right has blue paper that is actually darker than it appears and the words are all blue foil! ๐Ÿ™‚

Donna also sent in some Valentines:)ย  I guess I need to keep my comments down or this post will be a mile long:(

Ah, ha, I learned something new!!ย  I’m hoping you can click on them and make them larger if you want to:)ย  Donna made some Star Wars Valentines!ย  Aren’t they cute?!ย  I think the kids are going to love them! ๐Ÿ™‚

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

Ha, learned something else new!ย  Boy this is taking me forever to write!ย  I’m sure I’ll get better with practice! ๐Ÿ™‚

These are all cute Valentines by Donna and I know the kids will love them! They are probably at the hospitals waiting to be handed out! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Or they may have already been handed out, that is totally up to the hospitals to decide how they are distributed:)ย  I want to thank Donna for the wide selection of cards, she did a great job! ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t mind multiples of the same card as I have three hospitals and I’m sure a number of different floors to be spread around:)

I want to thank all of my card makers, without you, none of this would be possible! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  You can come here for inspiration or you can join in the fun of sending cards to children’s hospitals! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Just visit our web site to get more information SAS4Kids.

Thank you all for coming by to visit, I hope you come again! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  You can also visit the SAS4Kids challenge blog to see what others are making:)

Friday Mashup #236, SAS4Kids & Guests

I’ve been sick and in hiding for 4 or 5 days:(ย  I’m tired of being sick, so I’m here to share some Christmas cards! ๐Ÿ™‚ย ย  Hopefully, I’ll stay awake! ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  I’m going to submit this first card to theย  Friday Mashup #236๐Ÿ™‚

FM236

This week’s Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project inspired byย Christmas Cookies.
  • Create a project with Dies.
  • or Mash it Up!ย and create aย project using Christmas Cookies and Dies.

aaSDC18599From Stampin’ Up! I used Red Glimmer paper and sequins.ย  The main image is from Doodle Pantry called, Milk and Cookies.ย  If you click on it to make it bigger, it gets blurry:(ย  I don’t know why, it didn’t happen until I added my Watermark:(

I also made a card for Freshly Made Sketches, but with being sick, I missed their deadline:(ย  But here’s my card:) I’m going to enter it into the Challenge over at Doodle Pantry, Ants in my Pantry Digital Challenge 12.

aaSDC18601I used the same Stampin’ Up! Red Glimmer paper, and the same Doodle Pantry image.ย  I changed the layout to match the sketch, and used some cookie border that I found in my stash:)ย  I think it’s pretty cute and I’m sure a kid will love it next year, when I send it out for Send A Smile 4 Kids:)

 

Now, on to my guests who have sent in cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids.ย  These cards have already been sent out:)ย  My first guest is a friend of mine who I know through Stampin’ Up! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  She knows how much I love SAS4Kids, so she sent in some cards:)ย  Welcome Debbie Essay from PA:)

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAI believe all of Debbie’s cards were made with Stampin’ Up! products, but since my head is still full of cotton balls, I’m not going to look them all up unless you ask;)ย  Aren’t these cute! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  The kids are going to love them! ๐Ÿ™‚

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERANow I know off the top of my head, that the tree, candy can and the gingerbread men, all came from the same set.ย  It has stamps with matching dies (retired).ย  Now look at these snowglobes, they’re from the 2015 Holiday catalog and I think they’re still available:)ย  The set also includes a ballerina.ย  I love how she did the two cards on the right.ย  It reminds me of how you make a card and then step it up for the second card:) I remember this set is called Sparkly Seasons.

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThese Santa’s remind me of the step it up cards too.ย  Santa is here on the left, then in both cards on the right:)ย  Great coloring, Debbie:)ย  I love the snowman card also:)ย  I’m sure kids will be getting these cards this week and next:)ย  Thank you Debbie for joining us and sharing your talents! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

My next guest is a first time sender:)ย  Hopefully we’ll see more of her cards in the future:)ย  Please welcome Ann Merkins from MN:)ย  Ann has shared with me that she makes most of her cards with napkins! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  They have a beautiful sparkly shine to them:)

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAI checked out the snowmen and if you click on them to make them bigger, you can see some of the sparkle;)ย  Beautiful cards! ;0

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAI don’t know where Ann finds these, I’ve never seen napkins like this!ย  The kids are really going to love all the sparkle and shine! ๐Ÿ™‚

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAMore really cute cards! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I really love the Cardinal paper! ๐Ÿ™‚

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAI remember the reindeer had shiny paper, my camera didn’t like it, but they are so pretty in hand:)ย  Finally two Winter cards, one has no sentiment and can be used for anything, and one Thank You:)ย  Great job Ann, thank you for sending cards to our kids! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Sorry to rush off, I feel like I’m not even sitting upright in my chair:(ย  I think I’ve had enough of pretending I’m all better;)

Thanks for coming by today, I hope you enjoyed all the cards and maybe found some inspiration:)ย  I do have some more Christmas cards to share, but it will depend on how I’m feeling:)

Freshly Made #208, The Friday Mashup #230 & SAS4Kids

I got another card made! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  And, I’m going to enter it into two different challenges!ย  The first one is Freshly Made Sketches #208, the second one isย  The Friday Mashup #230.

FMS Final 208-001FM230F

This week’s Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project featuring Donuts or Baked Goods.
  • Create a project with a Friendship Theme.
  • or Mash it Up!ย and create a Friendship themed project with Donuts.

 

 

 

 

 

This is so sad, I have no donuts:(ย  So I substituted baked goods:)

aaSDC17964I wanted to meet the both of the challenge rules and still make a card that a child will love.ย  I think I did it! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  What kid isn’t going to love Gingerbread cookies?ย  The central image and the background paper are digital images from Raspberry Road Designs.ย  The set I used is called Christmas Tradition, I used two sets, the Paper and the Side Clusters Set 1.ย  The sentiment, which I thought was perfect, I found in a set called Fancy Pie, from Doodle Pantry.

I can’t remember what die I used for the circle, but the oval punches are both Stampin’ Up!ย  I also used Stampin’ Up! Real Red and Garden Green cardstock.ย  The sequins are Stampin’ Up! and I used some Dazzling Details on the snowflake.ย  Of course, this card was approved by my grandchildren;)

 

Even though I didn’t use a stamp set on this card, I’d like to mention that Stampin’ Up! is having a 15% off sale on stamp sets next week Oct. 19th thru Oct. 23rd.ย  I’d be happy to order some sets for you is you don’t have a demonstrator:)ย  If you have a demonstrator, be sure to ask about the 15% off sale! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Now, I just can’t walk away from Halloween yet;)ย  I have a special guest today from Canada, Diane Herniman! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Diane makes cards like I’ve never seen!ย  All my cardmakers are special, I love all their different styles! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Diane’s cards are just another different style:)ย  I couldn’t copy them if I tried!

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThis is the envelope and the back of the card.

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThis is the card opened, I took two different views.ย  The little mummy pops up with a little side panel with a bat.

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThis is the front of the card, isn’t it great? !ย  I love the whole card, it’s already been sent to one of my hospitals:)ย  I know someone is going to love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThis is the back on the left and the center on the right.

 

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAOf course, this is the front, great card! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThe is the back, I love how Diane matches the puzzles to the cards!ย  Do you see the gems on the bottom of the card back?ย  The inside is great too!

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAHere is the card front, is that wonderful?!ย  All of Diane’s cards are different! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

 

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAI’m sorry the back is so blurry, but the cards are all shipped already and I can’t redo:(ย  But you can see that a cat card is coming up, right?ย  Look at the inside of this one, very detailed:)

 

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERALook at this great cat!ย  Isn’t it awesome?!

 

One more card to go!

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERADiane makes all her own envelopes, they’re all different too! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  And here is the back, are you guessing a spider is coming your way?

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThis is the center, it’s an easel card!ย  Isn’t this great?!

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThis is the card opened all the way and the front.ย  Diane has such a great imagination! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Thank you Diane for these wonderful cards, I know the kids will love them! ๐Ÿ™‚

Friday Mashup #227, guests & SAS4Kids

Wow, I’m starting this post really early, about 4pm!ย  We’ll see if I get to finish, my grandson is taking a nap after a tough day at pre-school! lol

Today, I have lots to share:)ย  First is the card that I made.ย  I actually colored this image all by myself! lolย  Really, I did! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I got a rubber stamp years ago, but every time it was Halloween, I couldn’t find it! ๐Ÿ˜ฆย  I found it!! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I’m going to enter my card in the challenge over at the Friday Mashup #227. ย  I didn’t compare them side by side, but the image looks the same as my last challenge.

fm227fAnyway…..

Here’s your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create aย project with Pumpkins.
  • Create a projectย using Die Cuts to create a Frame.ย 
  • or Mash it Up!ย and create a project with Pumpkins and a Die cut Frame

So some of you are expecting a card full of pumpkins.ย  Not today;)

 

aSDC17761There are three little pumpkins:)ย  And actually, on the original rubber stamp, there is only one pumpkin.ย  I added some pumpkins that I got from a friend who has a store called Dozens of Paper Cuts.

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAI actually couldn’t find the first rubber stamp, so I bought a second from Impression Obsession ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  lolย ย  I couldn’t find the second stamp until about a week ago!ย  Yes, the older I get, the more things I “misplace”, it’s so sad:(

For coloring I used markers and colored pencils.ย  I made black lines on my pumpkins with a pen and used marker to color the edges so my “new” pumpkins would look like the one already there:)ย  Not a lot of coloring, but a little time consuming with all those tiny things! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I hope you like it, it’s my specialty, Simply Made;)ย  Be sure to check out the other cards at the Friday Mashup! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Now on to our guests! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  My first guest is Donna Wakefield of IN.ย  Donna is a repeat sender but in this box she only sent in 3 Halloween cards,ย  she sent others that I hope to get back to at a later time.

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThe little ghost is on a ribbon so he swings. Great layouts of both of these cards! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAIsn’t this too cute?!ย  A little ghost kitty, I love it! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Thank you Donna for your Halloween cards for our kids! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Now I have a couple cards from Bev Schoepke of WI.ย  Bev has sent cards before as well:)

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERABev sent multiples of both of these cards, so I have plenty to share with my three hospitals! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Great Halloween card, and look at this Thanksgiving card!ย  I love the layout, the embossing, the ribbon, and the button, it’s just an all around great card! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Thanks Bev for thinking of our kids once again! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

My last guest is Geri Dean from MN.ย  Geri has sent in many cards over the past year, some of these cards may have been made by her sister, Melanie Carruth.ย  They weren’t separated by maker.

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAGreat not-too-scary cards for the kids! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAMore great cards for our kids! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThe sunflower card has a little prayer.ย  At this time, I have one of the only hospitals accepting religious cards:)ย  If you like to make religious cards, be sure to send them for my hospital! ๐Ÿ™‚

I love this little turkey and the embossing on the card! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  The scarecrow is not scary and the kids will love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Now, I have to share three cards that I thought were excellent for teen boys! They’re not Halloween, but I’m going to add them anyway;)

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love all of these cards! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Girls might like them too, I shouldn’t say only boys would;)ย  I loved them the minute I pulled them out of the box! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I personally love guitars and guitar music!ย  I used to own a Fender guitar….in my younger days, and it wasn’t electric;) lolย  I love the embossed music background and everything else about these cards! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Thank you Geri and Melanie for creating some really great cards for our kids! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Thanks for coming by today, I hope you enjoyed all the inspiration from our cardmakers!:)ย  I’ll only have a few more posts of Halloween cards.ย  I will post some general cards, and then it’s on to Christmas!!:)ย  I love Christmas cards, I try to make some all year so that I have enough! ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you’ll come back again for more card inspiration, and be sure to check out the challenge blog over at SAS4Kids!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi everyone, I’ve been busy, as always! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  The kids start school this week, so they’re taking time today to be especially loud!ย  It will probably take me hours to get this posted!ย  Oh, what fun! ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  Right now we are listening to two different types of music, kids songs and Christmas music! lolย  Never a dull moment here! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have a guest with me today, Nanci Simmons from FL:)ย  I’ll be showing her cards after I post mine:)ย  I’m going to be posting my card to three different challenges, a first for me! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I usually post one card for each challenge, but I’m pressed for time this week:(

The challenges I will be entering are:ย  Freshly Made Sketches #199.

FMS+Final+199-001

The Friday Mashup #221.

FM221Here’s your Mashup Challenge :

pic22a

That’s a big job for one little CAS card!

abSDC17225This card has an amazing pre-colored, digital image by Fred She Said Designs! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  The image I’m using is called Wheelbarrow Digi & Pre-Coloured.ย  The sentiment is a Stampin’ Up! stamp, I don’t know what set it’s from, because I bought just this one stamp:(ย  Maybe someone reading this will know:)ย  The saying seems very appropriate for our SAS4Kids hospitals:)ย  It says:ย  “Every day holds the possibility of a miracle” by Elizabeth David. ย 

At the bottom I added a strip of Daffodil Delight, embossed with a retired Stampin’ Up! embossing folder, Needlepoint Border.ย  I added a samll piece of Wild Wassabi.ย  I’d be hard pressed to make it much more clean and simple, although I could, just don’t want to;) lolย  The background color is also Stampin’ Up!, Pacific Point, one of my favorite blues! ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, that’s my card for today, now on to my guest, Nanci Simmons! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAย  SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAAre these too cute! ?ย  Nanci has sent multiples of her cards, but they’re all a little bit different:)ย  Different papers make the cards different enough for two kids to receive the same card on the same hospital unit:)

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAย  SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAYou can see that Nanci is a master at changing a few things to make the cards different! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  These are all hand colored! ๐Ÿ™‚

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAMore hand colored cared, all are great for boys! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAI’ve never tried these, but Nanci says they are easy and fun to make:)

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAย  SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERALook at these 4 cards! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Nanci is so good at matching paper and styles! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I love all of these and once again, these could all go to the same hospital unit and everyone would be happy! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAย  SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERALast two cards tonight, I love both of these! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I love Nanci’s wide variety of papers, colors and layouts! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Thank you Nanci, all these cards will be great for our kids! ๐Ÿ™‚ All these cards, as well as my card, are going to hospitals sponsored by Send A Smile 4 Kids! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Thanks for coming by today, I’m thankful for your interest! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Even if you don’t send cards to SAS4Kids, you can still get plenty of good ideas from all the cards posted:)ย  I am always interested in your comments or questions! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Have a great week! ๐Ÿ™‚
