Camp Stamp-in-Oga Sketch Challenge

This is one of the two cards I made for the challenges for Camp Stamp-In-Oga, which was held on Saturday. This is for the sketch challenge. If you check my post tomorrow, you will my card for the color challenge.  I am hoping one of the two is a winner! I am writing this post on Thursday, so I am not sure yet--but, crossing my fingers for a winning card!

Here is what the sketch looks like:

I used one of my favorite Stampin' Up Halloween sets called Spooky Cat.  I also used a set of Stampin' Up framelit dies that I go to often--Layering Circles.  I cut out each image with a circle and added a scalloped circle of colored cardstock behind it.  I also really like the Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper.

Here is the inside of my card:

Broom Ride with the CCC

This is my card for October's Monthly Challenge for the Creative Card Chicks.  This group is a kind of mystery image swap, where we each get an image and additional items to complete the challenge each month. 

Kelly is the hostess this month and sent everyone this sweet witch image from Whipper Snapper Designs, that she bought at Creative Pals in January while visiting me!  Kelly included some great Halloween sentiments. She also sent great patterned paper along with some wonderful embellishments, plus the cobweb die cut-out.  

Here is the inside of my card:

The Creative Card Chicks are to post our cards between the 21st and 23rd of each month--so if you check the blogs on my sidebars, you may see more of these wonderful creations! Many of our members also post their card in our SCS thread--so you might find more there.  Suzy is up for November, so be sure to come back and join us again!

Be Thankful

This card is for the monthly swap that Pam hosts on SCS.  Each month we make 10 cards and include a matching envelope.  They can be any theme for any month.  All of the swappers are wonderful and I have received awesome cards each and every month.  

I inked a newer Unity set.  I think everyone can use this card for Thanksgiving or just a thanks card!

Here is the inside of my card:

I hope Pam and the others swappers like my card this month!

Unidentified Image Swap

This is the card for the 40th round of the Unidentified Image swap on SCS.  It is a group of ladies who are a part of a bi-monthly swap where we all use the same image, sent to us by the hostess.  The unidentified part is that we are to not discuss the image at all until the day they are to be posted--today!   The image for this round was provided by Carol.  She will swap the cards and include the next image that Laura Jean, our next hostess in their return envie.  And then we get to do it all again--for round #41--in December! 

Carol sent us this cute Penny Black~~How Tweet It is image.  I really liked coloring him up,  I only added a snowflake brad and used a decorative corner round, so the image and designer papers were the focus.  I also did not add the sentiment, so it can be used for a Christmas Card or any other winter occasion.

Here is the inside of my card:

If you check some of the other blogs listed on my sidebars, you may find some other swappers who have posted their creations today or in the next few days.  I hope Carol and everyone in the swap likes my card--and that you do too!

Ready? Set. Go!

Today is the third Wednesday of the month and that means a Ready, Set, Go Challenge Card! The 3 Musketeers (Jeanette, Kelly and I) are back with another challenge this month--our 18th month!  We are now coming to the end year #2!

I Jeanette provided the challenge for October and she posted an interesting challenge:  Jeanette got her first pair of glasses in 1978.  She remembered being amazed at the things she could see that had been hidden before without her knowing it.  She had us research for facts/trivia/etc. from the year 1978 and then take something we discover from that year and use it in someway to make a card. So--off I went to search for something from 1978.  There were many choices, but the top 2 TV shows that year were Laverne and Shirley along with Happy Days.  Bingo!  They were two of my favorite shows as they were set in Milwaukee!  I have lived in a suburb outside of Milwaukee since 1979!  They used many local names and places in the show--it was fun to watch each episode.  And, what made Milwaukee famous--Beer!  And, those funny ladies both worked at Shotz Brewery. I knew the route I was going to take.  Ready?  Set.  Go!

I used a stamp set that I have had for a few years, but I am not sure it has ever been inked up.  I remember buying it at a stamp show in Madison.  It has a huge beer mug image with the word Cheers printed all over it.  The set also has some fun sentiments-so I picked a birthday sentiment.  I hope my friends like my memory of 1978!

Here is the inside of my card:

Please be sure to check out the other Ready, Set, Go cards.  Here is a link to Jeanette's and Kelly's blog.  I am sure you will not be disappointed and will see a couple of great cards! I hope Kelly and Jeanette like my card and that you might too! Kelly is up for the next theme, so be sure to check back to see what we are up to on the 3rd Wednesday in November!
