Sketch 342- Monday Lunchtime Sketch

Hello my friends.  What a weekend I have had.  My brother has been really sick and finally yesterday, he was admitted to the hospital with a UTI and Pneumonia.  It was my weekend to spend with Mom and while there they had to do some work on our heating system, so my husband had to empty all the closets for them to run a wire.  Well I was not at home and it was my craft room where the work needed to be done, so when I got home yesterday, I headed for the craft room to make my card for today's Monday Lunchtime Sketch and guess what?  You are right, I could not get to my desk.  So I pulled out my computer and this is what I created using my digital studio.  As soon as I can get to my desk, I plan on printing this and using it for one of my Christmas Cards.  I love it.
I used the Glitter paper kit for the Silver and gold effect.  I also used the coloring tool for the stamped images.  It was a lot of fun and if I need more than 1 card, I can print quite a few.  Makes it quick and easy.
Would love prayers for my brother.  He really needs them.
Hope you all have a wonderful and blessed day and don't forget to check out the rest of the design team samples.  This is a great sketch so make sure you link up also.

Sketch 341- Monday Lunchtime Sketch

My Paper Pumpkin October 2014

Happy Saturday Evening to you all!  Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  Today I was finally able to put these cute little pie boxes together for Thanksgiving.  This is from the Stampin' Up's! October Paper Pumpkin.  I just love them.  We are going to my daughter's home in Virginia for Thanksgiving and I filled these boxes full of candy for little gifts.  I thought they turned out so cute.
And here is a close up of two of them.
In the kit there was 8 boxes and actually the yarn was to make a ball, but I decided to just tie a bow.  I just liked it much better.  So, I have plenty of yarn left to make some other items.  I also made a template of the box since I saw some cute items on Pinterest when making these boxes.
Today was also my granddaughter's 10th birthday and her party was at the skating rink.  I just had to add a few photos of her.  I can't believe she is 10.  Such a sweet and witty little girl.  I just love her.  She had an 80's theme to her party and she did a good job dressing the part.  She even crimped her hair.  Sweet!!  I remember those days.

You will see her birthday card on Monday!  Hope you all have a wonderful rest of your weekend.  I plan on it.

Sketch 340- Monday Lunchtime Sketch

Well  I am a little late on posting my Monday Lunchtime Sketch this week.  I had the card done on Thursday evening and then my daughter and new granddaughter and family came into town and I forgot everything else.  I even forgot to add it to the post to post Monday Morning on Mary Jo's blog.  I am so sorry Mary Jo.  Actually thought about it Monday afternoon.  But, it is a wonderful sketch and here is my sample.

And the inside of the card!
The light was a little bright and made the stamping not show up as good.  Don't forget to go over and check out this weeks sketch and join us.  I know you will be glad you did.
Have a wonderful week!

Sketch 339- Monday Lunchtime Sketch

It's time for our Monday Lunchtime sketch and yes Mary Jo has a wonderful sketch for us today.  I again used my cute little house and die.  I am loving this holiday home set.  So here is my sample for this weeks sketch.

And here is the inside.  My salutation is a little off center, but I am ok with that.  It gives it character as my daughter says.

And I am using some old paper that I had laying around and just embossed Santa and the sleigh on the designer paper.  Here is a close up.

Now it is your turn to show us what you can do with Mary Jo's sketch and check out the rest of the design team samples for some inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by.
