Make a Wish

Feeling Sketchy is another sketch challenge that I've always enjoyed.  Here's their first challenge for the new year:


I used the sketch to make another birthday card, just in case I need two for Joseph's birthday!

It's Party Time!

Stick It Down has always been one of my favorite sites for sketches, and I was on their card Design Team for a while.  It was only natural, then, that I check them out to see what they have to offer for January.

Here's their January Card Sketch:


Since my youngest son turns ten next week (!), I decided to use the sketch to make a birthday card.

Pinecone Christmas

When I was looking for new sketches and challenges, I came across 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  I always participate in a Christmas in July card challenge in one of my scrapbook groups, but I never have enough Christmas cards.  I also came across the ABC Christmas Challenge.  Both of these will be perfect and will hopefully help me have enough cards this year!

Here's the January sketch:

Butterfly Hello

I can't believe it's been almost six months since I shared something on my blog!  HOLY COW!!!  The end of 2018 must have been much crazier for me than I thought it was.  I've got a lot of things going in 2019, too, but I'm going to try to make time for some cards, layouts, and challenges!

I found this sketch at Freshly Made Sketches:

and made two cards with it.



I'll be entering the first one, which I call Butterfly Hello, at Freshly Made Sketches.

Grand Turk beach

Hi, everyone!  It's been a while since I was here, so I hope everyone had a great summer and that things are going well for your kids if they've started school. 

Today I'd like to share a layout with you that I made for my Scrappin' 'n' Chattin' group's monthly 24-Hour Challenge.  For the challenge, we initially choose three collections we own that we'd like to work with.  The hostess then pairs us up, and when it's "Go Time," she posts three sketches and lets us know which collection and sketch our partner chose for us.  We then have twenty-four hours to complete our layout and post it in our group.  It's quite fun!  This month, my partner chose for me sketch two and Me and My Big Ideas Ocean collection.


I'm also going to enter this at Lasting Memories, as their transportation prompt for this week is "Boats."  I think a cruise ship counts as a boat!  LOL!

I hope you all have a great week!  Happy scrapping!
