Mojo Monday Sketch Birthday card

Hello!!  I started using this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch  For a Birthday card  I need to make for "Papa John" who just turned 55!!  It did take a little life of it's own after I really got into it further.  I have a hard time with Male cards anyways so I just went with it! lol Here is the sketch-

But here is where I ended up!! 

I used Products from both the December and January Birds of a Feather kit.   Don't you love that chevron "Glitz" Paper?  It was GREAT for a masculine card?  The Prima Postmarks came in handy for the "Birthday" sentiment ( they were in the Dec BOAF kit)    I also the thickers for the Numbers 55.  Stamps and wooden buttons are from Close to my heart.  The "Happy" sticker is an older one from 7 Gypsy's I had.  

Thanks for stopping  by!

My Minds Eye meets Close to my heart Artiste!

Hello everyone.  Yes I know Christmas is over BUT I have a huge family and we will still be catching up with one another and celebrating through the New year!   
I needed to make a gift card holder and a ornament box. So I used my Close to my heart Artiste Cricut Cartridge to cut out this little box and the little purse.   The paper, chipboard, and ribbon are using the December Birds of a Feather kit.  

I love the My Minds Eye "All is bright" collection which I used for both of these. Super easy and add a personal touch to those last minute gifts.
Hope your Holiday season is Happy and Safe!

Thanks for stopping by!

Deconstructed Sketch No. 82

Playing along with the Deconstructed Sketch and made this card.   Have lots of "Winter" type paper out thanks to my December Bird of a feather kit so I changed up from the Holidays and made this a Birthday card that I need for January.  

Here is the sketch

This time I used the Basic Gray "Aspen Frost" collection from BOAF.  Love those Flocked rub ons and the paper that can be versatile when needed.
Sketches are a great way to get those creative juices flowing when you need to!!  Join in on the sketch challenges!  I can't wait to see what you create!

My Minds Eye Christmas layout

I recently signed up for the Birds of a Feather monthly kit.  The December kit featured the MY MINDS EYE "All is Bright " Collection which I love!  Here is a Layout of my son Dominic all dressed up at for the  "Winter Ball" at my work.  This picture was perfect for this collection.  

I used the paper, chipboard elements, buttons all from this collection.  And the thickers that came with the kit were great to add the year.  I have some more Christmas pics I plan to scrap as well!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Snow flake Christmas

Here is a card that  I wanted to change up from red/green thing I had been doing for weeks now!  (Because I love the Pear and Partridge Paper from CTMH !! lol). So I pulled out Brown and light Blue and made this Snowflake card.

I used a retired CTMH background, as well as CTMH seam binding ribbon, a Dimensional snowflake that I added some glitter and Sparkles.  
Felt good to change it up a bit. Now if I could just get motivated to wrap presents!! UGH!! Not my favorite thing to do!

Happy Scrappin' & Stampin!!

This week from H2H we are challenging you with a sketch challenge!  Here is the sketch .

And here is my version of this sketch making a  3 1/2 x 8 card for Christmas but of course!!

Using all Products from Close to my heart of course for this card.

I used Close to my hearts all ready for you Cards in this size (C1738 ) I add the Pear and Partridge Paper pack for the base layer of paper.   I also used the "Giving and Sharing" sentiment from CTMH Dimensional Elements in Color for Holidays ( Z1772).  The Stockings are from the Awesome Pear & Partridge Glittery Rub ons!  (X7162C)  Love them !! They go on smooth and have 4 sheets of rub ons in the set.  I topped it off by silver embossing the Sentiment from the stamp set PERFECT FIT -  HOLIDAYS and snowflakes.  Adding some silver trim, glitz gel and sparkles gave it some  Holiday sparkle!
