I was so excited to make this tray for a friend. Her two daughters were in the Better Homes & Gardens Christmas Cookie magazine and I just had to preserve it. I was really wanting to do a tray and this was the perfect opportunity. All the shapes are from the cricut In My Kitchen cartridge. I just know she is going to love it.

Well I'm back from a spring break trip and ready to start scrapping. This is a picture of my niece with her moma. No special day just a cute photo and it looked springy to me so it was great inspiration. I used the sketch inspiration sketch #116 for more inspiration and finished this one in about an hour. I also had lots of fun using the new basic grey stuff.

Today I was excited to find a challenge on the Cards blog. I get the magazine and just love lifting their cards so I decided to visit their blog. The challenge was to make a small card 3 inches or smaller. I immediately thought of my paper trey ink tiny valentine set and use this Winnie the Pooh quote with it. The colors are off in my picture but I was in a hurry and no time to fix it.

I'm back after a little break. I was still scrapping/card making just not posting. As a matter of fact last week end I went to a scrap retreat and got 19 pages and 4 cards done. Woo Hoo. I got 10 world series pages done but have more to go. Here is another one I did today. Scrappin Sports & More is one of my favorite companies that puts out sports paper. I scrap lots of different sports so it's nice to have a good variety. They have a blog and in Feb started having sketch challenges. This is one of the first ones I tried and it turned out pretty good. It's pretty simple but a lot of my sports pages are. Enjoy and check out their blog at www.scrappinsportsand more.blogspot.com

Today I need to start making some Valentine cards and what better way than to get a kick start from a sketch from MoJo Monday. Looking back I have slacked a little as that was my post last week. I made a fun easy card with this sketch and I like it. It is from a new set that I got at papertreyink. I just love their stamps. This tiny Valentine set makes me hoppy, like the card says.

Today I took the MoJo challenge and it is a sketch but to make a round card. You can make a square card of the sketch but I went for the round. It was fun and different since I don't usually make round cards. I used one of my favorite 2RedBanana stamps "Sgt. Chicken". He is so cute and comes with several sentiments. I use the I salute you saying the most. I was also excited to use a new green copic marker I just bought yesterday. Woo Hoo new colors are fun!

I'm taking the Banana Split Sunday Challenge again this week. It's a color challenge to use blue, white, and silver. I used the Jan. Journaling Block 2 (it's on sale) from 2RB for this card. It's a little hard to see but I did stamp the snowflake with silver and used a stardust pen to fill in the heart. I also pleated my ribbon at the top of the mitten and I don't know that I will do that again. I used a lot of glue dots to hold it down before sewing. Does anyone know of a better way to accomplish this look without using so much glue? You can't use pins to hold your ribbon down.

I love it when I need a card and I can pop over to MoJo Monday and get a sketch from their sketch challenge. That is what I did today for this very simple thank you card. It was fast and simple and done. The quote is from 2RedBananas set called Early Birds and is a little hard to see. It says "One of the secrets of a happy life is continous small treats".

Today I have a layout that I made for my new favorite blog called Sketch Inspirations. They are new and so far I have really liked their sketch challenges. I am loving the circles on this page and yes I had to stitch on the page as well. I got a new portable sewing machine for Christmas that I leave in my scrap room and now I sew on even more pages/cards than I did before - if that is possible. This picture just makes me laugh ever time I see it. We get a real tree every year and I always take pictures when we are there tagging our tree. Well this year I had some resistance and so I just held the camera out and took a self portrait. Fun for this year but I hope I don't have to do it again.

Well after a two week break I think I am back into a scrap/card routine. I needed a thank you card and made this one and then I thought it was so easy and cute that I made another one and turned it into a birthday card. This is the same snowman I used a few post back but this time I put his mittens on his arms and gave him some glitter for his carrot nose. Hope you had a great new year.
