My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Emma and the Cake



Well, it's just a little over three weeks until Spring begins. I can't wait. Here in Pennsylvania, we've been bombarded with so much snow this month and they're calling for a little more tomorrow night. Every winter I go through a depression but this year is worse then ever. My passion is card making and it's even been a struggle to do this lately. However, my beautiful Granddaughter Mya celebrated her 7th birthday Saturday, so I made her a very special card. It actually did feel good to create again.

My card today was created with a pre-colored imaged from Fred She Said called "Emma and the Cake"
Mya's favorite color right now is Pink. So I started out with the Pink Emma and matched it up with The Lollydoodle Paper pack from Close to my Heart. 

The Happy Birthday is from the Holiday Tags stamp set from CTMH. This is my "Go To" stamp set most of the time. Great sentiments and matching tags. 

The pink Hearts and small flowers were punched form the Pink Glitter Papers. The Green banner was cut from the Green Glitter Papers. The hearts and banner were hung from the Pink bakers twine form the Paradise assortment.
Pink Glitter Gems were added to the center of the flowers.

Challenges for this card:
Seize the Birthday - Use hearts on Birthday card.
Catered Crop - Birthday
One Stitch at a Time - Girly
Quirky Crafts - Pile it on & 3D
Ink on My Fingers - Have a Heart

Nolan & the Bull Frog



Here is a Valentine I made for my Grandson Jeffrey. Very Non Traditional Valentine colors. I just love this image from Fred She Said called "Nolan and the Bull Frog"

I used the same sketch from the Deconstructed Sketch Blog, for this card and my last post. 

The design of this sketch was just perfect for the images plus, I have many rolls of glitter tape in many different colors so I wanted to finally use them.

The paper is from the Ivy Lane paper pack from Close to my Heart along with Crystal Blue Cardstock

I Love you THIS much!




Here is a Valentine that I made for my Granddaughter Mya for Valentines Day.

The inspiration for this card started with the pre-colored imaged from Fred She Said called "I Love You THIS Much!" This fabulous image comes in Six different colors or a Digi that you can color yourself.

I then matched it up with a great Sketch Challenge from the Deconstructed Sketch Challenge Blog.

I Love Mom - Valentine




Here's a Valentine that I thought I might make for my 4 year old grandson to give his Mommy for Valentines Day. I used the Fred She Said pre-colored image called Nolan with a Sign. There are five different signs plus a blank one that goes with this digi set. 

I had a new paper pack from Close to my Heart called Skylark. I just thought this coerner of the paper would go perfect with this image. 

I have just started getting back into Hand Stitching on my cards and so I dod so on this one. I also used a brand new Spellbinder's die.
