Sketch 347- Monday Lunchtime Sketch

Happy Monday and welcome to our Monday Lunchtime Sketch.  My moms birthday was yesterday and I used this sketch to do a card for her.  I had been wanting to use a stamp and die I had ordered from Sweet N Sassy called "God's Purpose," but because of everything that happened the first of December, I was unable to use it.  So, I thought I would use it for my Mom's card and I love how it turned out.  What do you think?
And of course the inside had to be done also!

Isn't this just the greatest sketch.  So why not just hop on over to our Monday Lunchtime sketch and take a look, then add your sample for us.  We would love to see what you come up with.
Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your week and Happy New Year!

Christmas Card for Grandkids

Good Morning and hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  Russ and I enjoyed our children and a little quite time after having our one daughter and 3 grandchildren in our home since Sunday.  And then of course with her being here the other daughter and 2 grandchildren were over quite a bit.  So you can imagine how quite it was when they finally left.  And today I am going to my moms to spend the weekend with her.
Anyway, thought I would share a card I made for my two oldest granddaughters who are 10 and 11.  I put this card in a bag with a pair of underwear and that was the first present they opened.  I have always told their moms as long as they believe in Santa, he will bring presents.  But if they stop he stops.  So when I found this cute stamp on sell last year after Christmas, I just had to buy it and they love it.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you all have a wonderful and blessed New Year!

Sketch 345- Monday Lunchtime Sketch

Good Morning everyone!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  My week has been full of a lot of emotions as my brother Joe went to be with Jesus last Sunday and mom was in the hospital very sick.  I know my brother is going to have the best Christmas yet celebrating with Jesus, but I miss him so much.  He was down syndrome and so to our family he was always the baby, even though he was older than us, 1 boy and 4 girls.  He was special in every way and a child of God!  Keep us in your prayers as mom is still in the hospital and now my dad is.  He was admitted last night.
Since I have not had a lot of time to do Christmas cards, I thought I would do one through My Digital Studio and send out to everyone.  I had taken this picture along with quite a few more of my grandchildren at Thanksgiving and decided to use it.  The sketch Mary Jo did for this week's Monday Lunchtime Sketch worked out perfect.  So now all I have to do is print and send.  Here it is!
As you can see my grandson was being silly, but it is so him, that I decided to use this photo.  I am going to print on matte paper and send.
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you have a wonderful and blessed week!

Sketch 343- Monday Lunchtime Sketch

Well here we are at Monday again and what a great and different sketch Mary Jo has for us today for our Monday Lunchtime Sketch.  At first I just did not know what to do and then it just seemed to come together.  I used two of my retired Christmas Sets from Stampin' Up!  I just can't seem to get rid of my Christmas Stamps and I still seem to add to them every year.  Anyway back to the sketch and my sample!  Here is what I came up with this week. 

And here is a close up of the star that I cut out free hand.  Very easy as you have the shape already there.  I also sponged around the edges to give it more of a stand out look and popped it up with dimensionals.
And of course the inside I used the star confetti punch on the inside also.  I am loving that punch and can't wait to use the punched out stars in some way.
And even did a close up of Bethlehem scene.
Ok, now it is your turn to show us what you come up with for this Monday Sketch.  I can't wait to see it and make sure you check out the design team samples along with linking your sample.
Thanks so much and have a wonderful week.
