Happy St. Patrick's Day

I really don't like St. Patrick's Day cards.  I don't really use them, so I usually don't make them.  The prompt for the Scrappin'-n-Chattin' 52 Week card challenge though was to make a St. Pat's card.  So I did.

I knew I wanted to use the current sketch at My Favorite Things.  I really love their sketches each week.


I wanted a really cute image to create my card and I found one at Doodle Pantry.  I used the Irish Birdie digi, along with digital paper also at Doodle Pantry.


 

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
Cut It Up Challenge - Green and a Die Cut  (background paper and scalloped circle)
Red Carpet Studio - The Lucky One  (lucky clover on the birdie's hat)
Cardz TV - St. Patrick's Day
Digi Sketch Challenge - Cute Challenge  (cute birdie)
Pause Dream Enjoy - Any sketch  (MFT Sketch #166)
Catch The Bug - Feeling Lucky  (lucky clover on birdie's hat)
Through The Purple Haze - Use digital elements   (birdie and background paper)

Thanks for stopping by.

The Home Calendar July Page

I found that I didn't post my page that I used My Scraps & More, Sketch #69 for....

I loved this sketch, and I used it to create the July page for our July calendar.  I think my favorite pages are the July ones.  Here's the sketch...


I used Bazzill Basic Paper's Freedom collection for this spread.  And of course the subjects are my posers...


Thanks for looking...

The Home Calendar June Page

I had so much fun working with the My Scraps & More sketches this month.  I used Sketch #70 to complete the June page for the house calendar.


I used a few photos of the dogs after swimming in the creek in our backyard.  I used My Mind's Eye Wild Asparagus to create this page.  I matted all the paper with black cardstock and the photos with white cardstock.


I entered this page into Scrappin'-n-Chattin's Anything Goes prompt in the monthly challenges.

Thanks for looking.  This is the last page of the last calendar for this year.  I hope to put together a post with all the pages of the home calendar together later this week. 


The Home Calendar August Page

I have a post with another one of the calendar pages I finished over the weekend.  For all of the pages, I used My Scraps & More sketches.  For the August page I used Sketch #67...


For the page I used DCWV The Chateau Lavender Stack.


I am also entering the page into Scrappin'-n-Chattin's monthly challenges, the floral prompt.

Thanks for stopping by...

The Home Calendar's May Page

I finally finished our calendars!!  I got the 2nd one done a couple of weeks ago, but I never had chance to blog about the pages.  I am so relieved they are done....

I want to share the May page I created this weekend for our home calendar.  I followed Sketch #68 at My Scraps & More.


I used DCWV The Spring Fling and Summer Days Combo Stack, along with The Summer Days Cardstock  Stack.  I love the pink and green together, and the pink matches Tessa's collar.


I used this as my entry into the 52 Week Challenge at Scrappin'-n-Chattin'.  I also entered it into one of the monthly challenges at SnC - Floral.  The background paper is little pink flower.

Thanks for stopping by.  I have a couple more pages to blog about and enter.  I hope to do a post with the complete home calendar all put together....

Another Birthday Card

For my 52 Weeks Card this week, I created another Birthday card.  Not sure who this will be for, but it's ready when I need it.

The challenge this week for the card challenge at Scrappin'-n-Chattin was heat embossing.  I heat embossed the sentiment, which from the Paper Smooches, Sentiment Sampler set.

I followed this week's sketch from My Favorite Things.  I really love this sketch....



I used 2 of the dies in the MFT Die-namics Designer Label Stax Set 3 to create this card.  I love this shape.


I used papers from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh 6 x 6 pad.  I love this set of papers.  I have used 3 sets of the 12 x 12 papers.

I am also entering this card into this week's challenge at Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.  It's Anything Goes.


Thanks for stopping by.  I hope everyone is having a crafty weekend.

The Home April Page

I got a couple of pages done today.  It's not looking like this last calendar is going to get finished this weekend.  But I hope to work on it during the week too, so hopefully by next weekend it will be done.

I worked on the April page for the house calendar.  I followed Sketch #2 at Let's Get Sketchy.  It was really fun sketch to use...


I am really loving the springtime photo of the dogs in from of the Weeping Cherry Tree.  Right the tree is almost totally buried in snow.  I used another old collection from my stash - DCWV The Playtime Stack.


I also followed the Inspirational Photo from the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge this week...


I used my Woofers and Tweeters stamp set - the bone stamped across the hearts, and my Design Motifs set - the arrow strip pointing to the journaling.

This will also be used for this week's entry into the 52 Week Challenge at the Scrappin'-n-Chattin' Yahoo Group.
