I did Beate's weekend Challenge and had so much fun digging out my old Polar Express set. I really like this set. The bears are just so darn cute! And they have been collecting dust long enough. They like to come out and play as you can see.
You can find the challenge at Each one is so unique. I love looking at what everyone creates. Mine will be linked to her site in the comments area.
I used Real Red and stamped some snowflakes with Craft White Ink, used the coluzzle to cut the half circles. I used the last one for the black on the large round one and one in for the red. I stamped Flannel Background on the main card with Real Red Ink and layered the Polar Express on to Black and onto the card. I think it turned out cute, what do you think?

Happy Holidays

Are you all ready for another sketch challenge?

I used the old Polar Express set. I love this set it is so cute and I think it will be a long time favorite of mine. Can't wait to see what you all come up with. This one is an easy one so hope you all try it.
I used Polar Express stamped in black and colored him in with my all time favorite chalks. The background is some designer paper I had left over from last years catty. I love those snowflakes, wish it had more than it did in the package of that one.
So lets get started and see what you can come up with in this sketch. If you do the sketch and put in on your blog, please also share you blog site for us to see too.

Create for the sketch goes to Maria Bell, I got them off of her blog. Thanks Maria for the great sketches. I use them often. You can visit Maria's blog here.

Follow the Leader

SC144 Sketch Challenge this week. I love it. I dug out my penguins and decided to play. This is what I came up with.
I used Penguin Pleasantries stamp set (retired SU), Many Sayings Stamp. Non SU Designer Paper. I really like this paper it works well with almost anything. I used Basic Black and Whisper White CS. And colored in with markers.

Boot Scootin' Boogie

I used Really Rust CS for the card. From the template I cut out the pull up tab and traced to cs and cut out. I also from the template cut the bottom half of the boot off and used as a mask when I stamped the upper half of the boot. When this is all done you can add stitching to the boot and pull up tab. Attach pull up tab. On the bottom for the sole of the boot I kind of winged it with putting card stock on and adhering then cutting it out. Easiest way to get that done. When done this card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
Wish I still had those boots from when I did disco. Oh the memories that brings back. How about you did you disco? Loved those lights!

Ahh Shoot!

I was finally able to stamp tonight so did the SCS Challenge Card of the week. Love this layout. I got some images from someone at a get together one day and fell in love with this one and a few others I will be sharing another time. But this little guy is so darn cute.
This is how I made him. I colored him in with my favorite medium chalks. I use those more than anything for coloring. You can blend so well with them. I used the cuttlebug for the backgrounds. I added eyelets to the lt. yellow and the slot punch to do the corners. Choc. Chip ribbon was also used. Everything is layered with Choc. Chip. cs.

I just found out this little guy is from so if your interested in getting him you know where to go.

Christmas Cardinal

I have been working on Christmas cards. Yes I know it is early but, if I don't start now I will never get them done. So tell me what do you think of this card? I love Cardinals and it is our Schools Logo for sports. I used the cuttlebug again on this one. I just love those embossing folders. Can't seem to get enough of them. I used both the sm. and lg. oval punches for the joy. And my brads to kind of even off the card. I colored in using our SU Markers but think I may change that as I am really having trouble with them smearing. I hate when you get a card done and like it and all of a sudden you see smudges or something.

So Many Sayings

Hi everyone thanks for coming over to my new blog. I am slowly transferring things over from the old one. So bare with me while this happens, it shouldn't take long and it will be up to date.
I won't be moving everything over so not to bore you. But a few things I wanted to bring over to here.

I got the stamp set So Many Sayings, like most of you I am sure. But, instead of mounting them on the 3 blocks and only getting 3. I cut all mine apart and mounted them on Jumbling Blocks (sold at Walmart for 4.12 for 48 of them) You then get 36 sayings instead of the 3. Check out the photo's below. I would however recommend that you use a exacto knife instead of a scissors like I did, I think it would be easier cutting. They still turned out but you could see easier where you are cutting them.
