Crafty Card Gallery Sketch Blog Hop

Welcome to the sketch blog hop! The purpose of the sketch blog hop is to show how different designers can take the same sketch and come up with totally different cards....  If you happened upon my blog, be sure to go to the first stop, so you can hop along with us. 

Here's the sketch:

Here's my card:

My daughter from my heart is expecting her second child and asked me to create a baby shower invitation. Her theme is ballerinas and I found this print n cut ballerina in the Silhouette store. I am going to make another sample that is more pink and purple and add a butterfly or two by request. Thanks so much for visiting!

Your next stop in the hop is the fabulous Miss Beth.

Here's the full lineup in case you get lost....

Guest Designer Challenge for Crafty Card Gallery

Good day all. I am here to share my Design Team project here at Crafty Card Gallery. Our challenge for this month was to make a card representing something around our house. Well, in our house clocks are a HUGE deal. Hubby makes the most beautiful clocks and my kids love to ignore them when they go off for school/work. So in honor of the many clocks that are scattered around our home, I made this card:

Of course I had to inject my sense of humor into this card. We all know it is 5 o'clock somewhere and I think this would make a great invite for time out with some friends. 

And here is a pic of a clock Hubby made for his sister:

Thanks to Jenn for having me over for a visit. Until next time...

Get Inky Design Team Challenge- Glitter Challenge

It is another fun filled challenge over at the Get Inky Challenge Blog. This time we were to use glitter. You know that glitter is not one of my favorite things to work with so I decided to keep it contained. Here is my card:
I can never seem to have enough birthday day cards and this was so easy to make. I used the Buzzing Bees stamp set. You can find it here at Blue Moon Creations. I colored this little fellow with my Stampin' Up markers and my gold metallic gel pen. I used my Creative Memories Cheerful Birthday paper and some flower dimensional stickers that I had in my stash. I used my Stampin Up fine glitter for the inside. This was such a fun shaker card to make and the stamp set gives you so many sentiment choices and sizes of bees. I think this is my favorite set so far. I know you will love it too so make sure you hop on over and get one for yourself. Until next time....

I'm a Guest Designer Today over at Get Inky Stamps!!

Good day all! This is Susan and I get to be Guest Designer today here at Get Inky! Stamps. I have to say that I love die cuts and it definitely assisted me in this challenge. 

For this card, I used the Top Note die with my Cuttlebug after gluing down 1 inch squares on a scrap piece of paper. I love the scrappy quilt look of this . The stamp set that I used is the Sew Sweet Cupcakes set that you can find over at Blue Moon Creations. I hope that this gives you inspiration to come and join our challenge at the Get Inky Challenge Blog for our Show Us Some Die Cuts Challenge. Hurry on over as it closes out tomorrow. Until next time....

Die Cuts are IN!!!

Good evening all :)

I had to wait to share this card as it was made for my very special Mom. You know how much I love my Silhouette Cameo and it helped me make my Mom happy for Mother's Day. I found this card template at the Silhouette store and then decided to us Get Inky Stamps Buzzing Bees stamp set. This is  one of my faves right now. Here is the card that I made:

I just love that I have bees in different sizes and that you can mix n match the phrases. I stickled the flower centers and added my signature bling. I used scraps to make this entire card! Mom was so happy with her card and I am blessed to have her to share it with. 

Get Inky! Challenge blog is having a "Show Us Some Die Cuts" challenge going on now. Why not come over and show us your die cut card? We'd love to have you. Until next time....
