Hey Y'all! Took a few minutes today to make a card for the Moxie Fab World Start to Finish Challenge. The challenge was to make a card that carries the design to the inside of the card. I have to be honest with you, I rarely carry the design to the inside. At most, I stamp a sentiment, so this was truly a challenge. And, I gotta tell you that it was FUN! Definately gonna have to do it again!
Paige, over at Cards Blog, challenged us to make a card with trees/branches, so I used CTMH's Grown with Love stamp set for this one. I stamped half of the tree trunk on the edge of the front and continued with the other half on the inside edge. I added some stamped "hills", and sponged some Heavenly Blue ink to the top portion of the card. Thanks for stopping by today!

Cardvaarks has a fabulous sketch challenge, and I finally found time today to participate. I was also able to incorporate the Just Us Girls stitching challenge, again, and I couldn't be happier with the results! While curled up on my couch, I handstitched the "stripes" and stitched on the buttons. So relaxing! I thought the colors were so cheery, it brightened my day! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

A dear friend of mine, who happens to be the secretary at our church, went above and beyond for me this Christmas. My oldest son is a HUGE Utah Jazz fan (well, really a Kyle Korver fan). The one thing he asked for for Christmas was a signed basketball card of Kyle on the Jazz. Wanting to be a good mom, I browsed the web in search of a signed card, but none was to be found. So I did what any mom would do for her son, I called the lady who could "hook me up". You see, my friend's son and husband are avid card collectors/traders, so she sent them out in search of a card. They came back with several Kyle Korver cards, but none were signed. She went the next step and contacted our (semi-retired) pastor, who happens to be the grandfather of Kyle, and got the cards to him to get signed. The Jazz were in town Dec. 9, playing the Lakers and our pastor took Kyle out for dinner and asked him to sign a couple of cards. My son was elated with the gift, as you can see. (Now we need to get Kyle healed so he can play a little more. My son has been missing watching him play.)

All of these little cards were made using scraps, except for the card base of this first one, but since I didn't cut a new sheet of cardstock, I guess it would be considered a scrap, too?? All of the cards were made with PTI's Pure Poppy and Sweet Blush. The Black and Colonial White are from CTMH. The first card is a standard A2, and the other two are 4x2.5 (because that's what size my scraps were).
