Sentimental Sundays Challenge #28-Sketch

This week the Sentimental Sundays team has sketch challenge for you to try.

Here is DT member Dorcas' sketch that I worked from. Isn't it a fun one?

My card started out as an anniversary card for my husband but just looked too childish. So instead of using the "Happy Anniversary" sentiment that I had ready, I typed up this one. Now I still need to make an Anniversary card! Yikes - I'm running out of time.

I hope you will join us and use this wonderful sketch from Dorcas. Just remember to include a sentiment.

Last week I was sadly remiss in welcoming the new designers to the Sentimental Sundays team. We have a large, international team that is going to be a ton of fun and will offer you a lot of inspiration.

Meet the new designers on the Sentimental Sundays team.

A complete list of all 23 (yes 23!) designers including the senior DT can be found on the Sentimental Sundays blog.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope to see your entry in the Sentimenal Sundays sketch challenge.

Okay, Berry the Snowman doesn’t have the same ring as Frosty, but I think his cuteness totally makes up for it.  This is another one of the images that I colored during my crafting day with a friend before Thanksgiving.  I’m happy I had the chance to get him on a card.    Have a great week!  Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Berry from Stacy Yacula Studio at Purple Onion DesignsInks:  Memento Tuxedo Black Papers:  Neenah Classic Craft Solar White CS, Papertrey kraft CS, Carta Bella Winter Fun paper pad 6x6 Tools:  Sewing machine, Big Shot, Papertrey Doily details die, Stampin’ Up corner punch, Copic markers Embellishments:  May Arts Burlap twine, Tattered Angels glimmer mist, button Challenges:Clear It Out 2W, 3E, Must use stash item - Challenge: Anything Goes Stash Item:Anything Goes (Twine, button, die cut – had it cut and sitting in a bin since last Xmas)Loves Rubber Stamps W - #82 Anything Goes ChristmasOldie But A Goodie Challenge 2W, must use something at least 6mts ol…
It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
