Merry Monday #184, Freshly Made #217 & guests

I was sick, and down for a while, but now I’m better and playing catch-up! 🙂  I have lots to show you tonight, so lets get started! 🙂  First I have a card that I made and I will submit it to two different challenges.  Merry Monday #184 and Freshly Made #217.

Merry Monday’s theme is baking:

184Freshly Made Sketches, has a sketch;)

FMS Final 217-001My card stayed pretty much to the sketch, which is what I normally do;)


UPDATE:  My card has the honor of wining the Merry Monday #184 challenge! 🙂

Winner Badge

For this card I used a digital image from Raspberry Road Designs, from the Christmas Cookies collectionI also used one of the papers from the paper pack that goes with this collection.  I used Stampin’ Up! Real Red, and either Wild Wasabi or Pear Pizzazz for the words.  I cut the words with a die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, and the middle rectangle, I cut with Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangles.  I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop-up my sentiment:)

I’m pretty pleased that I was able to pull a card of any kind together in the last couple days, so I hope you like it:)


I have 5 guests today!  I will be showing only a few cards from each guest, and then I’m done showing Christmas cards for this year!  So hold on tight, here we go! 🙂

My first guest is Lee Mae Elkins:)  This is the second time Lee Mae has sent cards to me, personally, for my hospitals:)

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERALee Mae sent a nice selection of cards:)  I have to admit, it was really hard to pick just a few from each guest.  I picked these because I thought they were all so much fun! 🙂  Kids love animals of just about any kind and dress them up for Christmas and it’s all the better! 🙂  Thank you Lee Mae for sending such wonderful cards for our kids! 🙂


Next is Kayla Ford from IL, not too far from where I live:)  Kayla is a repeat sender:)

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAAll of Kayla’s cards are bright and cheerful, with lots of colors and patterns! 🙂  Kayla’s cards remind me of quilts:)  Thank you so much Kayla for thinking of our kids again to cheer them for Christmas! 🙂


My next guest has sent in a number of times before, Andrea La Vigne from TX:)  Andrea has her own blog that you can check out to see how she makes her cards:)  Pop over to see her blog Andrea’s Antics, here🙂

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAAren’t these all cute! ?  Andrea does wonderful coloring and water coloring! 🙂 I know the Reindeer is from one of our sponsors at SAS4Kids, but I’m sorry, I don’t know which one:(  Maybe someone could fill us in on that?  I love how Andrea positioned him on her card! 🙂  Great cards Andrea, thank you for being a repeat sender, I know the kids love your cards! 🙂


Holly Blaskie from MI, is my next guest:)  Holly is also a repeat sender:)

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAHolly used some really cute cats this time, and some really pretty silver accents:)  The tall card next to the kitty has the silver, but it looks kind of black:(  Holly sent in 75 cards this time, it was hard to pick just 4!  Thank you Holly for your continued support of our kids, they will really love these cards! 🙂


My last Christmas cards for this year were sent in by Geri Dean and her sister Melanie Carruth of MN:)  Geri and her sister sent in an amazing 151 cards! 🙂  I know everyone can’t send in that many, and I assure you, every card counts toward a box for a hospital!  Don’t ever feel rushed or that you have to do as many as someone else!  I don’t care if you send 5 cards, you are making a difference in a child’s life! 🙂  Every card made and sent, is a happy smile in an envelope to a child! 🙂

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERANow aren’t these fun! 🙂  The first cards are made with Lawn Fawn, I have those little birds! 🙂  I’ve made some of these little penguins, and Geri has these wonderful horse stamps that she uses a lot:)  Here she’s added Christmas paper and a sentiment to really dress it up!

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERASAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAOk, there were a lot of cards, I really had a hard time narrowing it down!  I love the soft, cute animals in the first set, and the last card is genius! 🙂  The tree card had the background paper and sentiment added, and then included is a set of stickers that a child can decorate themselves!  I’ve never seen this, what a great idea! 🙂  They can put on the tree and the little ornaments any way they want to, what fun! 🙂  I took off the paper clips and put the cards and stickers into a clear envelope along with a regular envelope.  Geri and Melanie always send in great cards, thank you ladies for working so hard to made Christmas a wonderful time of the year! 🙂


I want to thank every single card maker who spent time making cards to bring a smile to the faces of our kids here at Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂  Without all of you, we would not be able to do what we, the volunteers, do! 🙂  The world is a crazy place, I believe we, cardmakers and volunteers,  are doing an important job, that affects lots of kids all over the USA!  I am so proud to share your talents and pieces of art with our kids!:)

I thank you all for your help making Christmas brighter for so many! 🙂

I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year! 🙂  I hope to continue working with you through the next year! 🙂

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

I got another card made! 🙂  And, I’m going to enter it into two different challenges!  The first one is Freshly Made Sketches #208, the second one is  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! and create a Friendship themed project with Donuts.






This is so sad, I have no donuts:(  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.  I think I did it! 🙂  What kid isn’t going to love Gingerbread cookies?  The central image and the background paper are digital images from Raspberry Road Designs.  The set I used is called Christmas Tradition, I used two sets, the Paper and the Side Clusters Set 1.  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!  I also used Stampin’ Up! Real Red and Garden Green cardstock.  The sequins are Stampin’ Up! and I used some Dazzling Details on the snowflake.  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.  I’d be happy to order some sets for you is you don’t have a demonstrator:)  If you have a demonstrator, be sure to ask about the 15% off sale! 🙂


Now, I just can’t walk away from Halloween yet;)  I have a special guest today from Canada, Diane Herniman! 🙂  Diane makes cards like I’ve never seen!  All my cardmakers are special, I love all their different styles! 🙂  Diane’s cards are just another different style:)  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.  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? !  I love the whole card, it’s already been sent to one of my hospitals:)  I know someone is going to love it! 🙂



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! 🙂



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


SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAHere is the card front, is that wonderful?!  All of Diane’s cards are different! 🙂





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



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


One more card to go!



SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERADiane makes all her own envelopes, they’re all different too! 🙂  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!  Isn’t this great?!


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


Well, that’s the end of the cards for tonight, I hope you enjoyed them! 🙂  Thanks for coming by today, I’m always glad to have you! 🙂  Come back again soon to see more cards! 🙂

All of these cards will be sent to my Illinois hospitals donated through Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂  Be sure to check out our challenge blog, get card ideas, enter to win a prize, and be sure to send your cards in to one of our volunteers! 🙂

Merry Monday #167, Freshly Made #197 & SAS4Kids

Wow, I have a lot going on today, and I also have a guest!  Are you ready?  Here is the info for Merry Monday #167:

167Here is the card I made, I wanted to do something different……

SDC17078bYes, there is a tiny heart, you probably need to click on it to see;)  There is a little green angel holding up a heart down by the “a” in Peace.  I was going through my storage and I found these little gift tags.  I outlined it with silver line peeloffs and the added the Holly leaf peeloffs.  The Merry Christmas is also a peeloff.  Peeloffs are very popular in other countries, you can get them in the USA.  I’ve found them here, look under stickers. I used Stampin’ Up! Real Red as my cardstock highlight color.


FMS+Final+197-001Freshly Made Sketches #197 is a sketch.  You all know I stay pretty close to the sketch;)

SDC17052Supplies for this card are all over the place!  I used some tree looking paper and the gray paper, both printed on my printer, from Raspberry Road.  Both are digital papers from different sets.  I should have written it down, but I didn’t:(  I  have tons of digital kits from Raspberry Road!  If anyone wants to know which sets, please just ask and I’ll look it up:)

The branch was cut from the same paper using a Quick Kutz die.  I couldn’t decide if I wanted in front of back, front won.  The moon was cut with the new Stampin’ Up! 2 inch circle punch, from Stampin’ Up! Crushed Curry.  Of course, I used the Stampin’ Up! owl punch.  The eyes are Stampin’ Up! Melon Mambo.  The owl gray front came from one of the Stampin’ Up! Halloween papers, I didn’t write that down either, I’m so sorry:(  But, I know the Happy Halloween stamp came from the Stampin’ Up! set Teeny Tiny Wishes🙂

Both of my cards are going into boxes for Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂  SAS4Kids has a challenge blog, and this week the challenge is Christmas in July, check it out! 🙂


Now I have a guest today, Donna Wakefield from IN.  Donna is a repeating card donor and she also has a blog of her own.  You can go visit her and see what else she’s up to:)

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAAren’t these too cute?!  Donna might say on her blog where she got these adorable penquins:)  I love all the blues! 🙂  All Donna’s cards will be going to one of my 3 hospitals, supplied by SAS4Kids! 🙂


SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERADonna send a number of these, and that’s ok, because I have 3 hospitals to share with! 🙂  These are awesome, and there are a couple more different designs! 🙂



Some really pretty girly cards!  I don’t know, maybe boys like flowers too:)  This looks like a Stampin’ Up! set:)  Really pretty colors! 🙂


SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAWow, these cards look really fun! 🙂  Who doesn’t like balloons or kites?!


SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA    SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAI love this cute little birthday puppy, but the sand castle is my favorite today!  If you look close, you can see little footprints in the sand near the center!  Don’t you just love it? !  The sentiment is appropriate, because the whole card looks dreamy to me! 🙂

Thank you Donna for sending more fun and encouraging cards to our kids! 🙂

Thanks for coming by today! 🙂  I hope you enjoyed viewing all the cards! 🙂  I plan to be back soon with more cards to share! 🙂

Merry Monday #88 & Fred She Said Christmas Party

Fred She Said is having a Christmas Party Giveaway! From Wednesday Dec. 18 until Monday Dec. 23 Midnight EST.

Come see the Fred She Said DT’s fabulous projects 🙂  Please leave a comment at the Fred She Said Blog for a chance to win one of 3 $10 Fred She Said gift certificates or post a link to a recent Christmas or Winter project  using Fred She Said products for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate 🙂

Also at the Fred She Said Facebook Page there will be an extra $10 gift certificate to giveaway.  All you have to do there is post a recipe ( or link to a recipe) of your favourite holiday recipe or treat 🙂  All details are at the Fred She Said Blog.

I wanted to be sure and tell you about the Fred She Said Party over on the FSS blog! 🙂  Be sure to check it out for some great giveaways!

Now I have three cards to share! 🙂  I’ve already entered one at Merry Monday #88, but I think I can enter one more:) I’ve given all the cards away, so I will have to post details as I remember them.

Here’s their challenge:

MM New Look Sketches-021Here’s my first card:

Poster3This is a very simple card, but I love it!  I know my DIL checks out my blog now and then, so I have to ask her to not tell Matthew this is his card;)  I got the background from Raspberry Road Designs.  It’s called Blue Christmas Paper Set.  There are other Blue Christmas sets to match, including a freebie:)  Right now they are having a 50% off sale, so hurry over there!

Anyway……I picked out the paper and thought about what I would do next.  I flipped the image, and knew the deer would be perfect!  The deer are a Memory Box die called Deer Trio.  I cut them apart and placed them in the “snow”, I glued them down with sticky dots, not pop ups.  Then I looked at it a few days and thought about what I wanted to add.  I decided I didn’t want to add anything;)  It’s clean and simple, and I love it, I hope my grandson will too! 🙂

My next two cards are alike in that they use a technique called Starburst , I found the technique instructions here.  My next card:

Half-fold Card2I just couldn’t get the colors right for this photo, at least not to my satisfaction;)  But the card is gone so I had to do the best I could to present it.  The papers are from imaginisce, the series was called Polar Expressions.  I had a number of the papers and some chipboard stickers.  The bear is a chipboard sticker that is popped up with Stamin’ Up!,  Stampin’ Dimentionals.  I bought it several years ago, but I still love it! 🙂  I used the fronts and the backs of the papers to make my Starburst.

Last card for tonight:

Half-fold Card1Now the colors in this photo look awesome and I don’t know why, I took the photos one after the other.  This card uses a chipboard sticker from the previous pack of stickers, but the paper is something I found on ESTY.  I am so sorry to say I don’t remember where on ESTY:(  It was listed as Christmas paper, but it looked a little Spring like to me.  Finding Cardinal papers was almost impossible!  I do love how it turned out though! 🙂 I attached the Cardinal with glue dots.

Well, I’m off to get more done.  The grandkids will be home from school for two weeks, so I have to use my time wisely…..if that’s possible;) lol

Thanks for coming by today, I hope you’ll come again! 🙂  Be sure to check out all my links for special deals! 🙂

In case I don’t get back, please have a safe, peaceful, and very Merry Christmas!!!! 🙂

Merry Monday #67

Wow, I’m really cutting this down to the wire!  Right now I have about an hour and 40 minutes to post this card to the challenge over at Merry Monday #67!  So this post will be kinda short;)  Here is the sketch for this week:

MM June 17And here is my card:

Half-fold Card1My pre-colored, digital image is from Fred She Said.  This is one of my favorite birds!  You can find it in the FSS Christmas bird series, it’s called Winter Chickadee.

I used Stampin’ Up! Garden Green behind the plaid and behind the Chickadee.  The red plaid paper is from Raspberry Road Designs from their Cranberry Cottage collection.  I love their papers, I use them a lot to go with my Fred She Said designs🙂  I used a misc. rubber stamp, then more Stampin’ Up! supplies.  I used some retired ribbon, a ribbon slide, some basic pearls, and Stampin’ Dimentionals to pop up my bird image.

I’m playing catch-up again.  Lots going on over here!  Thanks for coming by today, hope to see you soon! 🙂

Merry Monday #57

Yay, I received an Honorable Mention for this card from Merry Monday #57:)

Honourable Mention


Well, I think I’m just going to have to say that there is never a “normal” day or week around here! 😦   I’m also kinda thinking I will never catch up! 😦   But, being me, I will still try! 🙂

This week over at Always Playing With Paper, they went back to all sketches:)  So this weeks sketch for Merry Monday #57 looks like this:

MM New Look Sketches-002I made two cards for this challenge.  I am trying to put aside extra cards for “Send A Smile 4 Kids”.  You can click on my link on the left side to find out about this worthy cause:)

Here is my first card, you can click on it to make it larger:

Poster3I always use mostly Stampin’ Up! products, and that’s true for this card as well.  But first, I’ll tell you about my pre-colored digital image from Raspberry Road Designs.  The central image is from a digital kit called Christmas Cookies Side Clusters.  I’ve used Raspberry Road Designs before, they’re very easy to work with:)  I used one of their papers, and then topped it with a side cluster.

Under that I used Stampin’ Up! Real Red, and Gumball Green.  I used a SU embossing folder that’s not in the current catalog:( The sentiment is from SU Short and Sweet-retired. Lastly I added some basic pearls from SU and Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the image.  A simply made card;)

Now for my second card, you can click on it to make it larger:

Poster4Yep, you guessed it, a wonderful Fred She Said image:)  Pre-colored digital images help make a lot of my cards Simply Made😉  This image is called Hat Tipping Snowman. This product includes both Pre-coloured and Digi/Uncoloured images.  There are 2 coloured versions plus  “antiqued” versions.  PNG’s (no background) and ready-to-print sheets are also included 🙂

I think this is a fun card for a child:)  I didn’t pop up the whole red paper, just the snowman. I used Stampin’ Up! digital paper, Frostwood Lodge (plaid), Real Red, Garden Green and Basic Black. The sentiment is a misc stamp that I had in my drawer.

Thanks for stopping by today:) !  I hope you like my cards:)  I hope to be back very soon with another card:)

Merry Monday #55

Wow, I either get a whole lot done, or hardly anything!  I am so far behind this week:(  I’ve fallen today for the third time in as many weeks:(  I found myself resting a lot this week:(  Hopefully I’ll have no more of this falling down stuff and I can get back to work!

Today I have a card for the Merry Monday #55 challenge.  I’ve missed at least one of my favorite challenges every week  for the last three weeks and I’m going to try and fit all of them in this week!  This challenge is not a sketch challenge.  Merry Monday is mixing it up this year and adding different challenges besides just sketches:)

This is the challenge for this week:

55I went right across the middle and used a Spellbinder die, Paper Piercing, which is kinda hard to see, it’s around the brown shaped paper, and obviously, Angels:)

My Angel is a pre-colored, digital image from Fred She Said, called Emma The Caroling Angel Pre-Coloured Set.  I love so many of the Fred She Said images, it’s hard to choose sometimes!

This card is a lot more “busy” than usual, but it’s still pretty simple:)

Half-fold Card1Wow, when enlarged you can really see all the elements!  I will probably make another with a little less going on.  The printed papers I used are from Raspberry Road Designs, the set is called Shabby Flakes.  I tend to use a lot of their papers with my Fred She Said images:)  Anyway….. Raspberry Road is having a sale until March 31st.

I used three different snowflake stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!, inked and stamped with Craft Whisper White.  I didn’t emboss it, I thought that would be just too much;)  I used four different snowflake punches, with pink pearly gems.  I forgot to add my sparkle on the wings, I really wanted to get this on my blog tonight!  I’ll add it later;)

This was a really long post today, I hope I haven’t bored you to tears!  I hope to be back soon with my card for Freshly Made Sketches:)

Thanks for coming by today! 🙂  I hope you’ll come back for more cards!

Freshly Made #70

Oh dear, I made this card for the Freshly Made #70 challenge, but I missed the deadline:(  Oh well, I’m going to post it for you anyway:)  You can still click the link above and go see what everyone else made:)

Here’s the sketch for challenge #70:

FMS Final 70-001Now here is the card I made with mostly digital elements that I was telling you about:

Half-fold Card1Hmmm, it looks a little blurry here, I think that’s from cropping:(  Anyway….the blue background paper, the blue foreground paper, the tan accent paper and the main digital image are all from Raspberry Road Designs called, Whispers of Winter.  I made the sentiment on Print Shop, using the same paper as behind the image.

Everything is printed, cut out and then layered.  You may be able to tell the sentiment has been popped up. The black in the very back is Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, I used SU gems, and Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up my sentiment.

This card will be mailed out this week for a family members birthday.  I love all the blues and the image! 🙂

On Friday, Feb. 1st, Fred She Said will be having a blog hop and sale!  Pop over to her blog and sign up to follow and you will receive a notice:)  Or be sure to come back here on Friday and I will have all the details:)

Thanks for coming by today, I hope you like my card:)  I’ll be back again soon, hope to see you! 🙂

Friday Mashup #93

Today I have an all digital card!  Yep, usually I would print out my digital pieces and cut them just like any other paper and make my card.  But today, I did the whole card digital.  My granddaughters have been helping me make cards in my craft cave…….it’s a mess!

I did print it and cut it out and had it set aside to put together…….so much for best laid plans.  LOL   Well, they’re only young once:)

Here is the challenge for this week over at the Friday Mashup:

So here is the “Mashup” Challenge:
  1. Make a project with a “Birthday Theme”.
  2. Or Make a project using “Brads”.
  3. Or “Mash it Up” and create a “Birthday project with some brads”.

And here is my card:

Friday Mashup 93I decided to “Mash it up”, because I can;)  Lucky for me to have gone digital, I still can’t find my “real” brads!  My main image is precolored from Fred She Said, called Emma & the cake.  Isn’t she so cute?!  She comes in 4 different colors, or a plain digi that you can color however you like:)

The other digital elements and papers all came from Raspberry Road Designs, the set is called Whoo’s Having A Party.  I love the way the colors match with my FSS image:)  The sentiment was typed and added in my Print Shop program.

I’m very picky when making digital cards.  I can tell you it takes me just as long to make a digital card as it does to cut and paste one!

Fred She Said, is also having a DT call for the Spring.  Head over to the FSS blog and check it out! 🙂

Well I’m off to bed.  Thanks for stopping by again so soon:)  My next card should be a Christmas card for Merry Monday, I hope you can stop by again:)

Friday Mashup #82

I thought I was done with Halloween, but here is one more for the Friday Mashup #82.

So here is the “Mashup” Challenge:
  1. Make a project with a “Witch”.
  2. Or Make a project using “Bleach”.
  3. Or “Mash it Up” and create a project with a “Witch using a Bleach Technique“.

I don’t like bleach, so I just made a card with a witch.  I really don’t care for witches either so I had to get creative.  Here’s the card I made, you can click on it to make it larger:

I used an unusual amount of different products to make this card, well, I think so anyway;)  For the main image, I used digital wordart from Raspberry Road Designs called Haunted Dreams Wordart.   It was really easy to use!  AND they are having a 50% off sale until Oct. 31, 2012!

Now on with the card info;)  The paper I used is Stampin’ Up! digital paper.  The background plaid is from Howlstooth & Scaringbone, you can get the paper, or the digital paper.  I used digital paper, I like to resize my paper to “fit” my cards.  The “moon” is also digital Crushed Curry.  Hmmm, actually all the paper is digital, I print my “paper” on cardstock and then cut it out.  My card is layered just like you would layer any card, the main image is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The “moon” was cut out with a Spellbinders Circle Die, and then I sponged Basic Black around the edges.  I used the bat stamp from the Stampin’ Up! set Wicked Cool.  I printed my main digital image on digital Very Vanilla.  I even printed the black background papers digitally, only because I was printing everything else anyway.

To finish it off, I added three colored, sparkly adhesive embellishments from Michaels.  I was going to put either 3 orange or 3 black, but my granddaughters were my design consultants today, they are 6 & 7, and they wanted both!

Thanks for stopping by today:)  Be sure to stop by the Friday Mashup and check out the other cards! 🙂
