Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge #745

 

Welcome to my blog, where I have
a new card to share with you each week for
 
 Tuesday Morning Sketches
The sketch for this week is another great one to use paper scraps.
 
That's what I did. 


The card above is actually my second effort.  I started another card and then the idea I had had didn't quite work.  But eventually I went back to it and I'm happy with the result.


Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

Double Trouble Challenge #160

 Here's my card for the Hoodie-Hoo celebration at 

Double Trouble Challenge



It's a center step card, made with lots of scraps, and a cute bunny from SU.


If you are wondering what Hoodie-Hoo Day is, hop on over to the Double Trouble Challenge to read about it and maybe join the fun.

Since DTC is partnered with Creative Creases Challenge #76 for their 3rd Anniversary,  I'll also be entering my card there. 


Thanks for visiting!

Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenges #744

 

Welcome to my blog, where I have
a new card to share with you each week for
 
 
 Tuesday Morning Sketches
 

This week's sketch is new for 2024.


I've made a simple 'Thinking of You' card.


 

I love this shade of blue.  The small bunch of flowers was fussy cut from the opposite side of the SU patterned paper.

Twisted Pop-up Valentine Card

Several weeks ago I attempted to make a twisted pop up card to send to a little one who is battling cancer.  But, everything that could go wrong, went wrong.  I dissected that card and turned it into a step card.

I thought I'd try again with a Valentine, following a tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers.

In fact, it was so simple this time that I made a second one 

for my 4 great granddaughters.


Challenges I am playing:

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Love is in the Air 

Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Valentine's or Galentine's Day (animals are stamped)

Creative Creases Challenge - AG with a fun fold

Double Trouble Challenge - Love is in the Air (Hot air balloon paper)

 

 

Thanks for visiting!
