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.
