The new Get Sketchy!

Hey all,
Another Friday has come and the new sketch is out!

Here it is:
Here's my card:I had fun making this one (I think I say that almost every week). This time was truly fun though. I had received a bunch of stamped images from a swap and have never really used them. This "dame" was one of the stamped images and I've loved her for so long...I must finally let go and put her on a card though! It was fun to color her in and then try to make her fit into the "perfect" card.

I like the look of this one!!

Bree and I have a Christmas card class tonight...only I will be teaching it Bree"less". She is still sick and cannot make it. But, she still found the time to make some of the cards that we will be making tonight.

I'll show them to you tomorrow.

Be sure to play along at GET SKETCHY for your chance to win the weekly prizes from one of our amazing sponsors.

Thinking outside of the box!

Ok, so it's not like me to be this creative. Actually, I'm not sure what inspired me to make this card.

Usually, I am the one to follow someone else's lead when it come to making things...maybe I'm starting to think outside the box (or maybe this is just one of those weird blips that sometimes happen!!)

Anyhow, here's the card I made for twins in my son's class...they absolutely love him and have invited him to their birthday party next weekend.
Then you pull the ribbon and unfold the card...The card then opens up...I really like how it came together...

Bree and I are teaching a card class next week and I think I want to throw this one in. I think it's just different enough to's also fairly easy to make!!

The Next Get Sketchy...I'm having so much fun with this!

So, the next challenge is up at GET SKETCHY.

Here is the sketch:
Here is my card:It's been so much fun making these cards. I even made my own creative card that I will show you on Monday.

Here's a little lead into the Harvest/Halloween season...and all the craziness that will befall us next weekend.

I also love seeing all the cards that the fabulous design team create. They totally inspire me to try new things and give me great ideas on how to use the stuff that I already have.

Thank you ladies, you inspire me!

It's crop time and time to get stuff done!!

Every fall there are so many crops that I want to attend. We host one at our church and this year I did all the cooking for the ladies who came. I also managed to get a little bit done.

They are not fabulous pages, but they are done, journaling complete and all! I also did not have all of my stuff with me, so considering those "restraints", I'm happy with the outcome.
This one is my DD's birthday gift from relatives, she had so much fun!
We planted our first family tree this was fun, the kids loved it!
Really, I don't need any other words for Reese but "Sweetheart"!
Here's my brave boy holding snakes...glad I didn't volunteer for that field trip!!

I am going to my BIG crop in a few weeks and I am already planning on taking everything (my space will be empty for the weekend and my DH will have a few days of enjoying a clean craft room!!) Those pages won't be missing any bling and "thingys"!

I'm also working on a project for all of the "teachers" in my kids' lives...there are about 20 of them between preschool, kindergarten, Sunday school and kids' clubs. Yeah...that's always a challenge to remember everyone!!

Get Sketchy #10

You know, some things seem to drag on and others seem to fly by.

I can hardly believe that we are into week 10 over at Get Sketchy

Here is the sketch for #10:

Here is my card:Things around here are looking up a little. We were caught up in an early freeze for the last week. We had snow almost every day since last Tuesday...just this morning we finally got above freezing and some of the snow started to melt.

Come on...really, it's just mid-October...NOT NOVEMBER!! I was starting to make contingency plans for Halloween...dressing my kids up as abominable snowmen instead of lions and tigers!!

We may be able to go back to animal costumes if the "reasonable weather" returns!! So, send "warm" wishes our way!!

Go over to Get Sketchy, try your hand at the sketch and you can win a fabulous Sakura prize!!

Get Sketchy #9

Sorry I've been away for awhile. It's been a struggle with my son and kindergarten...but now it seems that after a month of tears, kindergarten is not such a bad place to spend 1/2 day!

Here's the new sketch up at Get Sketchy.

Here's my card.

Hope to be keeping you better updated in the future. I'm itching to get creating!
