T & S Mojo Monday

T & S is my abbreviation for the Tall & Skinny theme used at the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge the last Monday of the month.  I've made my card 3.5 x 5.5 today.  But to be perfectly honest, it might not stay that way.  Sometimes I take the front of the card and remount it on a normal A2 card base before I send it out.

(All products are from the CTMH Heartstrings WOTG Card Kit.)

This is when I would normally ask you to pop over to The Muse Challenge to vote on my card.  But there are so many fab cards there, even I can't vote for mine!  You might want check them out.  My favorites are 5, 25, and 37 (I love tea cups.)  
Speaking of tea, mine has gotten cold.  
Time for a fresh cup.

Have a great day!
and to the gals back home -
Stay safe in the snow!

Boy's Birthday

My grandson has reached double digits this year, celebrating his 10th birthday today.  Although baseball is his first love, right now he's in the middle of basketball season. 
Here I've coupled a basketball word art digi image from Digi Darla with some sports DP and added a computer generated sentiment.

This simple card is going to find it's way into the following challenges:

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #3 - Let's Hear It For the Boys 
Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge - Anything Goes 4 Kids
Gem of a Challenge #136- Birthday Card for a Boy
Loves Rubber Stamps Challenge #135 - Items starting with "b" (ball, basket, birthday)
Happy Birthday, Nick!

Happy Birthday, Bob!

Birthdays have a way of just creeping up and surprising us, especially when they end in a zero.
Hope you have a great day, Bob!

Origami Heart Card

This is the second card I made yesterday using origami folding and CTMH Heartstrings paper and stamps.  I never made this particular heart design before.  It was a little tricky but it does turn out great.  I've been working with this CTMH paper pack the last couple of weeks, and really like it.  If you didn't see yesterday's post, scroll down to see the cool origami bow I made.

I'll be entering the following challenges with this card:
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Get In Shape (rectangle, heart, arrow, circle)
Time Out Challenge #23 - Valentine's Day (Twist-Hearts)

Handmade Bow

This morning I got up and had a hankering to do some origami.  
I love paper folding. 
I'm going to try to sneak this card into the January Challenge at Craft-Dee-Bowz
The theme is Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow.

(The papers are Heartstrings from CTMH.)

While shopping this afternoon, my mother mentioned that my aunt has a wedding anniversary in February.  Although I intended this as a Valentine's Day card, it just might become an Anniversary card.

I'll be submitting this card to the following:
Lil Red Wagon Challenge #273 - No sentiment.text

Come back tomorrow to see another card with origami.

Muse Challenge # 101

This relatively simple card could easily be used for Valentine's Day, a wedding, anniversary, or birthday.   Marion Vagg is this week's muse for the Muse Challenge #101 and you'll find her card, the inspiration for my own, right here.  In fact, she's made a whole set of cards in fabulous colors.

It's supposed to be a one layer card, but my stamping was a little crooked.  So I cut another panel and just covered up my goof.  I used CTMH paper and stamps from the Heartstrings WOTG Cardmaking Kit and CTMH white daisy pigment ink.

I'll be submitting this card to:
