Christmas Card Sketch challenge

This week's challenge was a sketch Challenge from Maria. I put the cricut to good use in cutting the circle and the ovals! Easy peasy!

Fun card to make! Check out the cards from the other divas on the left <--

Inside and outside

This week the challenge for the Christmas card was to decorate not only the outside of the card, but the inside as well. There are some very clever cards in this week's group - so be sure to check them out using the links on the left! <--- I chose to go with another no stamp card! I think it may have taken longer than stamping and coloring a card, but I'm happy with the outcome!

No Stamping Christmas card!

This week's challenge was to use NO Stamps on the card! This turned out to be a very easy challenge for me, so much so that I made 2 cards! With the help of Cricut, some circle punches and a cuttlebug folder, I was able to complete these in no time!

Don't forget to check out the work of the other Diva's on the Left <--

Happy 4th!

I've always enjoyed the 4th of July - as much for the meaning behind it as the fun, family, and food that also goes with it. It took me many, many years to be able to actually be in the vicinity of fireworks, the noise bothered me for a long time- even as a child I would put my hands over my ears whenever we stopped at railroad tracks to let a train go by - I just was not a fan of really loud noises. I have finally learned to be able to tolerate them, knowing they won't last all that long! But I love looking at them and am always in awe!

Have a safe and Happy!
