S&S Midweek Challenge: Miss You

After all the celebrating with family during the holidays, along with visiting my good friend in the hospital since Thanksgiving, I lost my creative mojo. Yesterday and today, I finally sat down and created cards for Operation Write Home.
Here is my "Miss You" card suitable for a young boy. I made several more of these with little girl and boy stickers.

Shopping Our Stash Challenge 82: Winter Theme

Yes, I did shop my stash for this one! This adorable colored digi from Doodle Pantry has been in my stash for months and this was the perfect opportunity to use it on a winter card. Doesn't that cocoa look warm and delicious? I'm not sure if the rascally ants are "borrowing" the marshmallows or adding them! BTW, there are plenty more "ant" digi's to choose from. They are so darn cute and always ready to join the fun.

My printer must be low on ink as the image turned out too light.and a little fuzzy :(

To all my crafty friends and visitors,

Have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year!!

S & S Midweek Challenge: Red, White, & Blue

After a long dry spell due to Christmas prep and BFF in hospital since Thanksgiving, today I felt like designing a card for this challenge.  I used the HUGS stamp for the first time!
I hope to keep my mojo working for the rest of the week :)

Shopping Our Stash Challenge 80

This timely challenge ("Winter Holiday)" was great fun. I purchased two matching 12x12 designer paper/stickers when the Christmas goodies first arrived at my local scrapbook store. These beauties caught my attention and I looked at them daily wondering how to create cards as beautiful as the paper and sticker sheet. Well, I checked online and figured it out. Here's my creation using only the paper and sticker sheet (My Mind's Eye "All is Bright" collection), CANDi (the 3 red dots), and dimensional adhesive under the angel sticker.

OWH Sketch #149 and S&S Midweek Challenge

Here's one card for 2 challenges! This uses the OWH Sketch (with artistic license) and the Stars and Stamps Challenge "Love or Hugs". I figure if a bear offers someone a "warm & fuzzy" it is similar to a human hug!
