Christmas Chaos #1


It's time for Christmas Chaos over on the Bugaboo blog.  In addition to being one of my very favorite challenges, it's also a GREAT way to finish up all those last minute cards.  Today's challenge is to create a card with sparkle.  I've got glitter, glossy accents and sparkly embellishments.  Done and done!

I'm also joining in the "Christmas Critter" theme going on over on Dragonfly Journeys.  I think that this is a hedgie, but I'm not a 1,000% sure!

December AIMP


Happy December 1st.

Wait ... what?!!  Yikes!

Since it's the first of the month,  it's time for Doodle Pantry's monthly Ants in my Pantry Digital Challenge over on the Doodle PantryBlog.  As always, it's an anything goes challenge. The only requirement is to use a digital image.

I'm using the sketch over on the Tuesday Morning Sketches site.  Super cute, and super fast to make.

Stella Says Sketch 419


I don't know about you but getting up this morning was ugly.  I bribed my body into going to exercise class by promising it a LARGE latte (I've been cutting back to a grande since I learned that my favorite drink is 290 calories - yikes!)  I made to kickboxing but only just barely.

I'm joining in the challenge over on the Catch The Bug website.  Cute sketch and cute Santa.

SS: The Paper Shelter


Happy Saturday after Black Friday!!

I hope you slept in and are planning to do nothing (other than participate in Sketch Saturday's challenge of course!!)  After the week we've had ... we are going to need another holiday, yes?!!

I do not participate in the Black Friday frenzy.  There is nothing that I want enough to get me out of bed early, and venture to a store with 1,000 of my dearest friends.  Yeah ... no.  I'm the sleep in, and provide breakfast to those in my family who get up at 3:00 in the morning type!!

Any who.  Because it IS Saturday, there is another sketch challenge over on the Sketch Saturday blog.  Our sponsor is The Paper Shelter.  I'm using their image: The Most Adorable Snowmen.

Come join in the fun.

DP: Fab n' Funky Challenges


Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the fun over on the Fab N' Funky Challenges.  Their challenge is to make a card with wings.  Since I still need Christmas cards, I chose to use this darling Doodle Pantry image: 12 Days of Christmas (admit it ... you are humming the song now in your head!)

I'm also using the sketch from The Paper Play Sketches.  It's a cute one.

Come join in the fun!

SSW2-103 Sami Stamps


It's the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.  And if you are like me, you are running around like a chicken trying to make everything perfect!  It's kind of an obsession!

We have another challenge over on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 blog.  We're sponsored by Samantha Siemers Ratliff from Sami Stamps.

I'm using her sweet image: Winter Cocoa.  I liked this image because this is pretty much what I want to do when skiing ... watch people and drink lattes!!

Come join in the fun this week!

TMS 378: Brrr ... Where Did the Warmth Go?


Wow, it is suddenly cold today!

One minute we were wearing shorts and today ... not so much!!  I am still working on the Christmas cards (less than 10 to go) Woo-who!!

Using the sketch over on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog.  It was cute and rather simple.  Perfect for me to alleviate the Christmas panic that has overtaken my being!
