SSCC #15 - Happy Birthday Lisa!!

Today's a very special Sunday because not only do we have a fun new challenge over at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenges, but my Sr. DT sister [and wonderful friend] Lisa is celebrating her Birthday today!! So in her honor, we're having a little Birthday Blog Hop and each of us DT are bringing one (or more) of Lisa's favorite things. (See what I brought to the party below!)

Our hostess: is the sweet and loveable Randi Barrett

The Scripture: Matthew 2:11, and Matthew 7: 7-11. I encourage you all to click through to our challenge blog to read the whole scripture and Randi's wonderful thoughts about this scripture and what it means for her!

Our Challenge: use gifts or images of giving gifts on our project.

Our Generous Sponsor: is La-La Land Crafts who is donating not one, but TWO LaLa Stamps that will go to one random player this week!! As you know by now I've had the pleasure of Guest Designing for LaLa Land Crafts for Nov. and Dec. and Irina is so sweet and giving. I'm so blessed to get to work with her! Thank you so much Irina!! For my card, I used Sitting LaLa and created wrapped pressies to sit her on. ☺

And now, I'd like to share what else I've brought to the virtual birthday party... dinner and music I thought it would be fun to serenade Lisa with music from her past! Below is a fun video of her childhood icon, Donny Osmond (na, this won't date you at all Lis!) LOL! Turn your volume up and enjoy these pictures to the song "Puppy Love"

I removed the Youtube video as I'm not sure about copyrights of it. I'm glad it served it's purpose her for Lisa's celebration! :)

And after a little entertainment from Donny, I've prepared a yummy Lasagna for dinner. Italian happens to also be my favorite kind of food as well and this looks scrumptious right about now! Dig in!

I hope you'll join the fun by hopping along!!

Your NEXT stop is LAURIE GATTON.

Be sure to stop by Lisa's Blog to wish her a Happy Birthday!! Love and Hugs!!

Holiday Lovin' From Our Oven

Nothin' says lovin' from the oven like a Little Yummy for Your Tummy stamps at KLSNS!! HA! you thought I was gonna say Pillsbury, didn't you?! ☺ I paired up this Baking Tilda Magnolia with the Eskimo Kisses paper by Basic Grey and used this week's Friday Sketchers! Sorry my picture's a li'l dark but it's late and one of my lightbulbs is burned out :( I was also trying to capture the sparkly gellyroll pens on this card... her socks, scarf, stripes on dress, and flower squiggles.

These stamps are perfect for the holidays with all the baking going on! Whip up a batch of cookies and add a tag or cute card with them! There are still some really cute Magnolias from all different collections available and on sale at KLSNS! There's also lots of new High Hopes Christmas stamps available and some super deals on clearance too! You can save $5 on your order of $30 or more with coupon code NOV5 when checking out! :)

There's still time to enter our snowflake challenge! Just add some snowflakes to your card, or use snowflake DP! You could win a free stamp and some other goodies from KLSNS if you enter your card by Monday, Nov. 30th!! Hope you'll come play along with us! There's also a super tutorial on how to glitter up your snowflakes this winter, and lots of inspiration by our Design Team, so come on over and leave some lovin' for our wonderful group of ladies who post each and every day! :) THANKS!

Happy Stampin' N' Scrappin'!!

Vintage Birthday for a Special Friend

Happy Friday!! It's also the day after Thanksgiving here, and in the spirit of giving thanks, I wanted to share a birthday card I made for a wonderful friend whom I'm very thankful for, Lisa Hjulberg. She's celebrating a very *special* birthday this weekend (although I won't tell HOW special *wink*).

For her card, I used a newly released set, "Merci Bouqet" from Layers of Color, along with these coffee pearls from McMahon Five Designs. The paper I'm not sure where I got? I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Stazon and colored with colored pencils. I also added some touches of clear sparkly gellyroll pen for pretty highlighting.

And I made another one of these Victorian Rose collector ornaments and sent to Lisa for her birthday. She's just recieved it so I am not spoiling the surprise! LOL.

**Note: I did not come up with the design for the ornament, I buy these in kits that come with the satin ball and a package of beads, pins and silk roses and I follow the instructions and diagrams to put it all together.

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday Lisa!!

Hope you have a wonderful birthday weekend!!

La La Weekly Wednesday Challenge

A Happy Hello from La-La Land!! :) Today we have a new challenge for you! It's a recipe challenge, but don't worry, this recipe won't put on the calories when finished (unlike the yummy Thanksgiving dinner we'll consume tomorrow!) heehee. Our hostess this week is Maureen and she wants us to make a card or other project using...

3 patterned papers, 2 colors of cardstock (1 can be a neutral), and 1 type of embellishment.

I used Santa LaLa and used this week's Sketch Saturday. My one embellishment is of course buttons as I figured my snowflakes were punched from paper so they aren't really considered a type of one. ?? ;)

I hope you'll join us this week and if you upload to galleries, please use the keyword LLWWC14. Challenge will close at midnight on Sunday night, and one lucky winner will WIN a new rubber stamp! Come on over to the challenge blog to see what it is!

I prolly won't be on here tomorrow, so I wish all my US friends a Happy Thanksgiving Day!! :)

Get Well Paulie

Happy Tuesday! Hope you're doing better than my daughter who's home sick today.

This is "Get Well Paulie" and is a digi image from Sweet n' Sassy Stamps. He will be released next week along with 4 sentiments... isn't that fabulous? I don't think I own any get well stamps for kids, so this was perfect to make my daughter feel better. That and the fact that I played a game with her after giving her this card! :) Huge thanks to the sweet and 0h-so-talented Korin for sharing these digis with me!

I used the sketch over at Sweet Stop Sketch for this week. And I just realized I forgot the big flower or other element in top left corner, WOOPS! You can go check out the sketch at the link above.

I'll be back tomorrow with a cute card from La-La Land! :)

SSCC #14 Give Thanks

It's time for another Sunday challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenges. We are very honored to have our very first sponsor, Our Daily Bread Designs, back again and donating this fabulous Christmas stamp set just in time to make some beautiful cards for the holidays!
This will go to one random player and it could be waiting for you! I know this week will be super busy with the holidays and such, but I do hope you'll take the time to come join us in fellowship and enjoy our DT's inspiration and be uplifted up by the Word of God.

Our hostess this week is my sweet friend HelenPhelps who picked this verse for today's inspired challenge: Galatians 6:9 "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."

Her challenge for us is to make a Thanksgiving card, or a card to thank someone.

A thought on this verse... I think we've all been there haven't we? Growing tired of doing good, and sometimes it's harder than other times. It might be easy when what we do is well received and we get praises and thanksgiving, but those times when the good we're doing becomes monotonous and thankless, when friends have seemed to disappear or people you felt safe with suddenly turn on you and snap at you, it's much harder. I've had one of those weeks. Ironic thing is that when it comes to card-making, I don't usually give up... I keep trying until I'm satisfied and would be proud to display it on my blog. But when it comes to difficult people situations, it's easy for me to withdrawl and give up and say, "I don't need this... I think I'm doing what the Lord wants me to do and these people are so hard to work with and it's so frustrating." But the Lord tells us "do not grow weary of doing good, for we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Easier said than done, but with God all things are possible and He gives us the strength for each new day. It's amazing what God is doing through our challenge blog. Bringing scriptures and challenges at just the right time. He knew someone (me this time) needed this verse this week.

On to my card... maybe the personal stuff has affected my creative juices or something because this weekend has not been my most creative. I think whatever mojo I might've had took a flying leap somewhere. I just wasn't happy with anything that I was creating. But even though I made more "throw-aways" than keepers, I did not give up, Lol. So, after I uploaded my first card (below) I went searching for something else I could do... something with an image I could color perhaps... and then I came across this really great site with cute digis called "Sew Many Cards." I downloaded this cute Donkey and Turkey image and love the way this one came out. My kids found a pack of feathers after I colored my image, so they don't match exactly, but I just HAD to use em anyways.

I'm looking forward to thanksgiving with mom and dad this year. I'm thankful for family that lives close by so we can get together for holidays and such. I'm also thankful for all my friends including all of you... my blog friends! Thanks for visiting me every so often and chatting when you do.

Here was my first card. The wreath stamp is by Verve and is prettier than I made it look, LOL - but I'm sure my mom will like it though, so this one's going to her.

I will leave you with a request... a silent prayer request. We all need lifting up in prayer at times and although it seems a little weird at times to ask it for myself or my family, sometimes we just need to ask. So, thank you... in advance. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

Holiday Greetings at KLSNS

After several failed attempts at a card last night, I finally ended up with this card. This is about my 3rd sketch and 2nd coloring of the image. Things just weren't working for me yesterday. So I decided to stickle her dress, horn and wings and call it good! LOL - *sigh* ♫ My mama said there'll be days like this ♫ ...oh, sorry! LOL! I followed this sketch by Friday Sketchers:
The stamp I used is from KL Stampin' N Scrappin' called Sugarplums Angel Emma. I love all the CC Designs stamps and digis. There are 2 other Emmas in this set plus a couple of sentiments as well. Kelly also has some sweet Christmas pixies, some Itsy Inkies, and High Hopes Christmas stamps and several Basic Grey sets as well. If you're looking to buy some Christmas pressies for a stampin' friend or relative this would be a great time to order at KLSNS as you can save $5 on your order of $30! Just use coupon code NOV5 when checking out :)

It's Monday. And I have the have the perfect card for a "manic Monday"... it says "Keep calm and eat a cupcake" LOL! This is the card I posted at KLSNS Saturday.

She's now carrying several other cute BG stamp sets as well at a really great price! Thanks so much Kelly!! This will be lots of fun for birthday cards.

You can see in my close up picture (below) that I added liquid applique to the white frosting, and I paper pieced all the cup liners in the Nook and Pantry paper as well.

SSCC #13 - Shadow Box Cards

Happy Sunday Morning!! It's time for another fun card challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenges!

Peggysue is our hostess this week and has chosen this scripture: "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." 1 Corinthians 13:12 (KJV)

Our challenge is to create a shadow box card! Peggysue says, "No more shadows, no more dim reflections when we get to heaven!" (Here's a link to a tutorial on SCS for a shadow box card. And here's Laura's tutorial for an alternate style of shadowbox card you might like.)

Our sponsor this week is Layers of Color!! Perfect timing as they are having a New Release stamps party all weekend and has very graciously donated this beautiful set, "Butterfly Collection" for one random player in our challenge!

Laura (owner of LOC) has been soo wonderful to work with these past couple of weeks behind the scenes. Very sweet and I just have to mention, she so graciously donated this brand new release clear stamp set to myself and my other 2 Sr. Design Team members, Lisa and Kathy! A Huge Thank You Laura for your generosity!! Here's what I made with this beautiful set:

I (once again) used my favorite Hickory strips (McMahon Five Designs) to make a window frame. The larger butterfly is 2-toned with rust and ruby red and stamped on designer paper. I folded the side flaps in and taped together and hid the seem with some wide celery satin ribbon and tied on top. It also helps hold the "valance" on.


For the butterflies on this next one, I stamped them in versamark on white cardstock and sponged chalks on (Poppin' Pastels technique). This verse is a "Plain Jane" by Verve Stamps.And yes, I have a 3rd one too! LOL - call me ambitious... that's me! I am not quite finished with this one... it still needs a sentiment on the front. That's where I got stumped. I hate to cover up the pretty paper, but it feels incomplete to me, so I'll think about it some more. Any ideas? :)

Hope you'll come on over and see what all our Design Sisters have made this week and get inspired to make YOUR OWN shadow box card!! You could WIN this fabulous butterfly collection of stamps! ☺

STAMPS: Butterfly Collection (Layers of Color); Plain Jane verse by Verve.

A {Prettie} Easel Birthday Card

YAY, it's the weekend, and full of fun surprises and prizes!! But I'll get to that later. My daughter is going to a birthday party this afternoon so I whipped up a card for her to take. My sister and I sometimes do our own personal "sister challenges" and it's been a while since we've done one, so last night we decided to both use our SOTM club stamp from Paper Pretties! Isn't she cute? Hop on over to Kathy's blog to see what she made with this Make a Wish Sophia! (after you finish reading mine first of course! *wink*)

This is called an "easel card" and I have no idea what kind of tutorial there might be out there because I didn't use one. I've been seeing these cards all over lately, and when you see the side of the card, you can pretty much figure out that you score your card front in half and then on the outside top of card, add tape to just the half that's closest to the opening of the card. Then add your seperate, decorated piece. I'm guessing that's how they did it?! LOL - of course you need something bulky to hold the "easel" in place after it's open, so I used buttons.

I used this Paper Pretties stamp called "Make a Wish Sophia" and all my decorative papers came from Paper Pretties too! In fact, they have a ton of really cute papers over there as well as stamps and other embellishments! Want a chance to WIN a free stamp set from Paper Pretties? Christie is sponsoring us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenges this week, so head on over and enter to win!!


Tomorrow morning starts a fun Blog Hop, so I hope you'll join in on the fun for more fabulous prizes!!

Tomorrow is also my day to host the KLSNS blog, so you can find me here and there... a little bit of everywhere this weekend! Hope to see ya 'round! :)

I just wanted to pop on here today and remind you about our Card Drive we're doing this week at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenges! Please, if you get some time to make a patriotic card, or any other THANK YOU type of card for our military soldiers... OR, any type of cards for them to write home to their loved ones (birthday, anniversary, miss you, etc) ... all types are welcome and very much appreciated!! (Please note that there are specifications such as use a white or light colored card base as they may just have a pencil to write in it... and please no glitter that can flake off, size requirements etc. are noted on the challenge blog). Our Design Team member Candace is going to send a (hopefully big) box of cards to Operation Write Home on Nov. 28th, so you have until then to send some cards her way.

LLWWC12 - Die Cuts N' Punches

Happy Wednesday!! This is my 2nd post for today, so if you're looking for my Inky Impressions Ornament card, please see my post below.

It's time for a fun LaLa Weekly Wednesday Challenge!! This week our hostess is Kathy and she wants us to use our Die Cuts and Punches!! You can use any stamps you want, but if you have La-Las, why not show them some love! You will have til Sunday night to enter to win this Building Snowman Maya stamp that I've used here!!

I decided to make a SNOW GLOBE! Well, a card that looks like one anyway! =) This was so fun to make. I saw this tutorial over at SCS. I had to adjust my measurements since this image was too large for the measurements given. (I believe I cut my circle 4.5" in diameter and they called for a 3.75") Aren't these some of the CUTEST winter stamps?!! Here's a sideview so you can see how I did the inside. It says, "There's no friend like a SNOW friend" which I printed from my computer.

Come on over to La-La Land Crafts blog to see more inspiration by the awesome Design Team and Guest Designers!!


See ya in La-La Land!!
