LNS Challenge 239/Sketch 295- Monday Lunchtime Sketch

Good Monday Morning!  Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  Our family was very blessed as my brother was able to come home and spend Christmas at home.  Such a blessing to all of us.
So today Mary Jo has another wonderful sketch for our Monday Lunchtime sketch and again I combined it with this weeks challenge for Late Night Stampers which was to do a Valentine, Wedding, or Anniversary Card or scrapbook page.  So I decided to do a wedding card.  I actually used two different stamp sets to make it and the Venetian Romance paper.  Love that Designer Paper.
And I also did the inside!

Sketch 294- Monday Lunchtime Sketch

Good Monday Morning!  Christmas is upon us this week and I am so thankful that we are celebrating our Lord's birthday.  He has blessed my family so much and also gave me a wonderful present 31 years ago yesterday.  My baby daughter was born.  So for my sample this week for our Monday Lunchtime sketch, I made this card to celebrate her birthday.
And here is the inside of the card.
She is our one in a million.  I also made an envelope to go with it with the envelope punch board.  What a remarkable tool.
Anyway, don't forget to check our sketch out this week and see what great cards our design team has created for you.  And then find a few minutes and create a card of your own.

Coaster made with My Digital Studio

Hello all!  Well I am back for the second time this week.  That is good for me lately, but so glad to be able to share these coasters with you.  They may look familiar and they are as I have had special orders for Journals from one item that I sold at the craft show.  You can find the post of the other two items here to see what I have made using this theme I made using My Digital Studio.  I may have to do more themes next year as this went over so well.  And they are so inexpensive.  I actually made 4 sets of 4 for a girl who was going to give them as gifts.
Thanks for looking today and hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!

LNS Challenge 238/Sketch 293- Monday Lunchtime Sketch

Well I am back!  So sorry for the long pause, but my brother was put back into ICU and so I was kind of tied up for a little while.  But again God has stepped in and performed a miracle and I am so thankful.  He is still very weak, but doing better.  Thanks again for the prayers that I know are going up for him.
OK, so I have not posted in two week and now our challenge for this week at LNS is to go simple, but not too simple.  Do at least three layers, add a few embellishments and that is exactly what I did.  And, yes I did lover Mary Jo's sketch this week.  So you must join both of these wonderful challenges this week.  I think you will be glad you did.  So here is my sample.
I am not happy with my coloring, but I just did not have the time to redo it.  So this is just the way it is going to stay.  I am probably more brutal with my own creations than others are, but it is what it is.  I do love the layout of the card and how the flowers are positioned, just do not like how I colored the flowers.  And yes I did do the inside and so glad I did.
So don't forget to check out these two fabulous challenges and see what the rest of the design team came up with.
Items Used are Stampin' Up!
Stamp Sets: Remembering Your Birthday, Sassy Salutations, Secret Garden

LNS Challenge 237/Sketch 291 - Monday Lunchtime Sketch

Good Monday Morning everyone.  What a week it has been.  I was able to spend time with my children and grandchildren and also go visit my brother.  God is so good as he is doing so much better, but still very weak.  I thank all of you who have asked about him.  It makes me feel special that you are concerned.
So now on to this weeks challenges.  This weeks LNS challenge is to do something Christmas with non-traditional colors meaning red or green.  And the sketch this week for our Monday Lunchtime sketch is just spectacular and I went straight for my "Snow Much Fun" stamp set and decided to do the Marina Mist for the colors.  As in most cases I did combine the two challenges and am very happy with the outcome.  So here is my sample.
I wish you could see it in person as I used the Shimmer White paper, so you have the shimmer in the background along with the Dazzling Details for the snow flurry.  So I do have a lot of shimmer going on with this card.  Love, love it!
I also decorated the inside with the Dazzling Details to give it a little ump! And added the snow flurry around it to match the outside.  I am thinking about doing the envelope the same way.
Hope you can see it.  And here is a close up of the front.
You still cannot see all the shimmer going on.
Now, please stop by and check out the sketch for this weeks challenge and check out our non traditional Christmas at LNS.  The design teams have done a remarkable job with their samples.
