AHSC #247

Hello Crafty friends,
  I cant believe its time for another card sketch at Atlantic Hearts sketch challenge!! Work stress is keeping me out of my craft room :(
Here is the sketch this week ...
And here is the card. I have a lot of bulk paper that I am trying to use up so I'm designing  a card workshop so I mixed that with this weeks sketch. This is the retired La Vie En Rose paper from CTMH
do you think the ladies will like it? I may make another with the panels mounted on black cardstock.
Thanks for visiting

AHSC #243

Hello Crafty Friends,
   I have been in a crafting slump lately. I cant seem to get motivated, but the sketches from atlantic hearts sketch challenge seem to help. What gets you out of a funk?
This is this weeks sketch.....

and here is my take on it.... I am still working with Christmas themes because I haven't gotten any new products lately. I have also been using stampin up music paper since my daughter is in first year university for music :)
its hard to see the shimmer pen on the snow but its there. Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

Blue Atlantic Hearts Sketch

Hello Crafty Friends,
   I was looking for inspiration for my card this morning so I combined the Sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. with the Colour challenge at colour my Heart and here is my card....
I used crystal blue but its hard to tell in the photo; and CTMH's paper silver and gold. the snowflake die is retired as well as the sentiment. I also used the new buffalo plaid embossing folder.
here is the sketch...
And here is the colour challenge colours...                                                                                         
Thank you for checking out my blog. Hope to see you again soon!

CTMH Christmas Tunes

Hello Crafty Friends!
   I am working on some Christmas cards today for my upcoming card class and I wanted to use CTMH's October stamp of the month Christmas Tunes. To help with creativity I went to some blogs! Here are the results.....For this first one I use Case this Sketch! as inspiration. As well as Heart 2 Heart Challenges especially Sue Bruch 's Card using this stamp set! Thanks Sue!!
The Christmas Tree card also uses markers to colour the star's. I stamped in Fern but New England Ivy would likely work better with this paper pack. Also Christmas Cards all year Round Challenged us to use leaves this month....well the paper has leaves so I think that counts :)

This last card I wanted to emboss, I uses the bulk Beary Christmas paper from CTMH for all the cards and added some gold foil tape.
I hope you like my cards, and I hope my ladies like them.
