Challenges & Sympathy Card


I finally got time to work on the Mojo Monday sketch challenge! And the Heart to Heart embossing challenge. I used Close to my heart products unless indicated otherwise. This is the PEMBERLY paper pack, Card word Puzzle stamps, and I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge for the shape and frame that the Flower image is stamped on. I embossed the flower and colored it in with my CTMH blending pen and inks. I did pull out some Stampin up punches for the sentiment as they fit just perfect!! Added some shimmer mist and pearls as well.

Thanks for looking!!

Hello there card

I just love the blog "Dawns Stamping thoughts" at

That is where I picked up the design for this cute lil' card I made. Again I was using up my Twitterpated Paper (retired) from CTMH and the stamp set that coordinated with it. Don't you love this cute lil' guy and the mushrooms!! :-)

Thanks for stopping by~

Happy Birthday Butterfly Card

Spring has sprung here in Maryland and I had out this paper pack from CTMH for a layout (see last post) and had paper left so thus I made some cards of course! This pack is retired and is caller Twitterpated.

Here again I used the Close to my heart ART PHILOSPHY Cricut cartridge for the butterfly and for the little frame for the Happy Birthday Sentiment. The seam binding ribbon is from CTMH as well and it can be inked to match your project. Isn't that awesome! The Sentiment is from the new stamp set "Card Word puzzle". So many words to put together for the perfect sentiment on all your cards!

I added some glitter, pearls and drew with a gold pen around the butterfly to add some highlights.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Layout...... for Grandma Jenna

My grandma Jenna passed away 6 years ago yesterday. I used some of my fav pics I have of her. Used some Close to my heart Twitterpated (retired) paper. Also used my CTMH cricut cartridge for the butterflies, banners, and scallop border. All Close to my heart stamps and waxy flax. Thanks for looking! It's been a while since I did a layout feels good!

Heart to Heart helped me think of the color scheme and to make a Banner with her name. See the site on my right side of my blog.

Mojo Monday Sketch 233 You're SUPER card~!

I was inspired for the layout of this card by MOJO MONDAY. (see the right of my blog for more info) and I just love how it turned out.

All Close to my heart products used. NEW Super Hero paper pack and the NEW Super powers stamp set. Don't you LOVE that super man? Our NEW twine adds to the border on the left and I used the BLUE RIBBON stamp set for the "super job" and "awesome" sentiments. Note that the THWACK is cut out of the patterned paper in this paper pack.

It's a really versitle paper pack too. With the Reds and Blues I can see more layouts and cards forthcoming!!
