Stamp Something: DRS Sketch Something Challenge

I don't know about you all, but I am so glad that the holidays are almost over! I have been so busy this past month that I haven't had much time to do anything other than cook and clean - and I'm getting a little tired of both! lol. I guess it's pretty much the same for everybody though. At least we all had a wonderful Christmas. The food was good, the dessert was even better, everyone liked their gifts and there was no family squabbling. lol. All in all, it was a very merry Christmas for our little family. Hope it was for yours too.

Here's the card I created for the sketch challenge over at Stamp Something. I used a stamp set that my ds gave me for Christmas - it's cute huh!Now for the deets: Cardstock and Patterned paper: Rob and Bob Studio (Provo Craft). Stamp: Pat the Dog (The Craft Lounge). Accessories: bone clip (Spare Parts), bone button (Jesse James), floss (DMC), ribbon (craft supply). TFL.

2 Sketches 4 You

I made this card for Laura's sketch #15 over at 2 Sketches 4 You. Sorry for the bad pic, but I had to take the photo on the inside because it has been raining non stop all day long! I'll try to take a better pic tomorrow.

All papers, alphabet stickers and puffy stickers are SEI's Paisley and Petals line. Card base is Stampin' Up and ribbon is Offray. TFL.

Tis the Season

I made this card for the Use Your Stash blog and Daring Cardmakers. This card took only a few minutes to make. I think I spent more time threading the buttons than I did on the entire card. Anywho, here is my last and final Christmas card of the season! I hope.

The base of my card is Bazzill. The patterned papers are Provo Craft which I've had forevah! And the stamp - Tis the Season is by Inkadinkado. TFL.

Share your favorite layout with UYS!

Use Your Stash knows how crazy this time of year gets for all of us crafters. So instead of the usual monthly challenge they are asking that you share your favorite layout with them. So head on over to the blog and check out our favorites and while you're there - provide a link to your favorite layout and tell us why it's your favorite. For all those that play along, your name will go in a hat for a prize! Drawing will be at the end of December.

Here's my favorite.
Why is this my favorite layout? I think the photo speaks for itself! For those that don't know, this is my shadow, Lulu. My ds teases me that there are more layouts of the dog than they are of him. Can I help it if she is more cooperative than he is. lol.

Swimming with the Dogphins

No, that is not a typo. This is a 12x12 layout that I created for the Winter Bullies Contest over at the Playground. We had to use paint, a quote, something orange, rubons and one photo had to be larger than the others. Being that I'm a one photo per page kinda gal having to use more than one photo was challenge enough for me. LOL. I'm not sure if I like it, but at least it's done and the challenge has been completed. I also combined this challenge with the IFC16 Get In Shape challenge over at SCS where we had to create a layout using 8 or more circles.

Deets: Cardstock: Bazzill. Pattern Paper and tag: SEI. Chipboard Letters: Scenic Route. Paint: Plaid. Letter Stickers: Making Memories. Other: Dymo label maker and ribbon.
