Thank You Collection

Evening, All!

Today marks the fifth and final card in my latest Thank-You card order.

For today's cards, I wanted to use basic colors. I used turquoise and red - accented with black and white.

For most of the cards, I also used an svg file from SVGCuts.  The file is one of their freebies - Thank You Caption.  The roses on the last card are from Bugaboo.

Enjoy!

Sketch Saturday Challenge

Not sure who sent me to Sketch Saturday - but I'm becoming addicted - especially since OWH has changed their Sunday sketch challenge to every other week.  I am always behind on my card orders - and on weekends often rely on simple sketches and a little mass production to get my work done.  Sketch Saturday's challenge is always filled with cute cards and lots of smiles (especially from me when I get some work accomplished!)  
This week, SVGCuts offered a freebie - perfect for my Thank You orders.  So I cut a bunch of those - and to increase production, decided to do some simple color blocking.  
The first card is for Sketch Saturday's challenge - the sketch I used is #305.  I had hoped to use an image from Bugaboo - as they are this week's sponsors.  However, it's been over an hour since I ordered the image - and nothing yet.  So instead resorted to an image I already had from Whimsy Stamps - Baby Boo Balloon.    
Here's a second card based on Sketch #285.


The rest of today's cards are using the freebie sentiment from SVGCuts - and some simple color blocking.











Several hours later . . . guess the digital image from Bugaboo was always in my inbox.  Silly me!  That I would be watching for an e-mail from Bugaboo, not Jodie!  Anyways, here's a quick card using the original image that inspired me first thing this morning.  :D But productive day....finished card order, cleaned house, laundry done!
Now feast your eyes upon the beautiful and inspiring cards at Sketch Saturday.  In fact, participate - The super prize offered this week is 7 Bugaboo digital stamps of the winner's choice.

Thank You! - Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge #237

Hi Everyone,

Christmas is coming...ready or not :) Today I am bringing you a card that takes the holiday as a perfect time to let someone know how much you appreciate that person.  The design is from Operation Write Home's Sketch Challenge #237 - I took a little liberty with the center rectangle - as I already had the large thank-you scallop printed.


Have an amazing week!

Serene Inspiration

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you are inspired by today's post.  These are for a special order for "serene" cards.  They aren't quite as serene as I had hoped....purchased the paper pack online - so didn't realize the pretty pink patterns and subdued colors would be to "tea stained."  Hope the customer finds them serene!  Throwing in a coordinated storage box.

Scraps to Treasures - Birthday Blog Hop

Happy Birthday!  It's Scraps-to-Treasures birthday month - and we are celebrating with a Birthday-themed linky party.

I have a fun birthday card to share - made for my 2-year-old nephew who is celebrating his birthday today with a John Deere theme.  I made a step card with a tractor in the background - embellished with a tree die-cut, a jeans 2, and a fun banner in the front.  Scroll down after the card to see a close-ups of the embellishments.

Onesie Manie

Morning, All!

Oh my word! My intentions of posting every day just is not happening. I’m determined to post catch up soon! Wish me luck! :)

For today’s project, I stepped out of my comfort zone.  For my daughter's baby shower, she sent out onesies with invites - and guests are asked to decorate the onesie.  So here is what my new grandson (who will be living in Michigan) will be wearing - thinking this may be an annual birthday gift....a new shirt every year.  :D
