Saturday Sketch

Sep 7, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards, Saturday Sketch

OK Im posting this a day early cause tomorrow Noah has Soccer, and we have a full day of family stuff. I feel a Smilebox creation coming on!

 Send me a link here in the comments section if you try the sketch OK! I LOVE seeing what you all do!

Oh, and if you find my mojo please return it! LOL! Its lost and Im so sad without it!

Despite no mojo I do love this card. My motivation is just gone-so no stamping for me this weekend. I do ahve PLENTY to share so keep checkin in 😀

And thanks to all of you who wished me and my family well! The prayers must have worked for Alexa cause she has her best “after chemo” time ever. She is generally exhasuted and sick, Like really sick, and this time she was up and ready to go to school! Made it through the whole 6 hour day with energy to spare for homework and reading!! Thanks Oh and her counts were OK too.

I am happy to report I am feeling much better too-definitely stress related!!!

OK back to the sketch

bella birthday  sketch 13 Bella-Beautiful b-day

Its Saturday once again. My FAVORITE day of the week, for sure!

I always post my sketch on Saturday, and hope you find tme to try it out. Dont be afraid of all the “layers” it really is an easy one!

I love making birthday cards. While Im always late on sending them, they are my favorite! My problem is I cannot send someone a card unless I made it just for THEM! I have this guilt that I just cant send it. So Im always late.

I still need to make a card for Jay’s grandpa-dang! I keep forgetting that!

I used my Cakeabella for this one. I love the Bella’s! I wish she had a place in the US to sell them cause I NEVER order due to the LONG shipping wait. I’m very impatient! Despite my long Bella Wish List-I havent ordered due to that fact! Plus the shipping for UM stamps from Canada-EEK! AmyR has been spoiling me with them, here and there! Im so lucky!

Anyway-they are CUTE ,CUTE, CUTE, and undeniably a must have.

That being said this is for my friend Nicole! I missed her b-day too! SORRY! She LOVES the bella’s.

So I made her this card. I have to say I LOVE it! The paper inspired my colors (scrap from a stamp store so I am sorry no clue who makes it) which are not your typical “mytime” combo of colors! LOL!

The sentiment is High Hellos by Lizzie Anne.

May arts ribbon, primas. bling, glitter on the candle, scallop punch, copic markers-all the makings of a great card!

You cant see that the black panel is dry embossed with polkadots-used my fiskars texture plate for that one. So there is some gret texture in this design as well!

Love her hair tie!

Anyway-I hope Nicole doesn’t mind a late b-day card!!!

Till tomorrow……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….:D

Blogger’s Challenge Sketch

Here is my first card for the Blogger’s Challenge! I just joined this group and am very excited to be a part of it!

This week’s challenge was to re-crete the card on page 12 of Stampin’Up! Winter Mini catalog. I love this sketch, and plan on trying it again!!

I decided to use L’Amour by Lizzie Anne. Since I told you I love this “Dove” image I figured I better use it! My Dove is CHIPBOARD! Just like the star in the catalog card.

You can make any stamped image into chipboard-here is how you do it-


1) Stamp your image in scrap cardboard/chipboard. Cut out.

2) Stamp your image on patterned paper/cardstock. Cut out.

3) Run image through a Xyron machine.

4)  Layer the finished image over the chipboard. File edges if neccessary.

Easy and cute!

You can also just layer it onto chipboard FIRST, stamp and cut once-but I liked this way.

My patterned paper is from a LSS and is unknown! It was scrap-and practically FREE 😀

The prima’s were the perfect touch in my opinion. Liquid pearls in the centers.

My glitter pen’s are back to work! I am waiting to stamp a sentiment in the middel panel-its one of those-any occassions this way! And I LOVE that!

Stay tuned tomorrow for a  Saturday Bella-Beautiful Sketch!!!
