Happy Tuesday! I am so happy that you have stopped by today. I hope your week is off to a good start. It has been cold and rainy for the last couple of days and that lets me know that I am not quite ready for winter yet! I mean 34 degrees for a high temperature is kinda crazy for this time of year.
Anyway, the cooler weather has me in the mood to work on my Christmas cards, and I used this week's sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for my card today. Here's a look at the sketch:

Hello, everyone! Happy Wednesday to you!
Today I am sharing the layout that I created for this month's sketch challenge at Scrap Our Stash. We have a fun 3-photo sketch to work with and the added challenge to use fall or Halloween patterned papers and mixed alphas on our layout. Here's a look at the sketch:

Hello, everyone! Happy Tuesday to you!
It's time for a new card sketch at Sketch N Scrap today. Sketch artist Heather has created a fun sketch for us to use:
For my card, I have used Echo Park's Dear Santa 6x6 paper pad. I picked up this fun paper pad, and a couple of others, a few weeks ago in hopes of them inspiring me to get some Christmas cards made. I find these busier type papers are always the hardest for me to use so I have challenged myself to try and use a few of them first. And you know what? I actually really like how this card turned out!
I did change up one thing from the sketch - it shows a little tab of sorts peeking out from below the focus panel piece. I moved it up to right underneath my sentiment - I just thought that it looked better there since it was a continuation of the main sentiment. The "Ho! Ho! Ho!" sentiment is from an Elle's Studio stamp set and the "Merry Christmas" stamp is from an old Fancy Pants stamp set.
I fussy cut one of the Santa heads from the patterned paper as a little embellishment.
Be sure to stop by Sketch N Scrap to see how the rest of the design team took on this sketch. I hope you have some time to play along with us!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a great day!

Hello, everyone! Happy Sunday to you! I hope you are having a good weekend. Mine has been very busy and very full - of all good things! I love it when I can spend some quality time with my girls, and that is just what happened yesterday. I think it was just what I was needing.
It's time for the second challenge of the month at Counterfeit Kit Challenge today. Master Forger Tracey has given us a fun "Trick or Treat" challenge. Since Halloween falls in October, you need to take three turns and pick either three tricks from the list below - something that's a little tricky to use - or three treats - something that you love to use. You can combine the tricks and the treats, but you must pick five items from the lists below and add it to your layout. Here is the list:
For my layout, I chose to go with "treats" and I used enamel dots, rainbows, stripes, and hearts.

Hello again! I am back with my third post of the day. If you are looking for my Counterfeit Kit Challenge reveal or my Sketch N Scrap reveal, please scroll on down.
I am back with my October kit for The Great Stash Bash 2020. The Great Stash Bash is a challenge that my friend Lisa and I have been doing this year. We have made it our mission to try to use up as much stash as we can this year. Here's how it works:
We will be creating a kit of 10 papers (7 papers that are 3 years or older and 3 newer papers), 5-7 scrap papers, four embellishments (3 that are 3 years or older, and 1 newer embellishment), and this month we will be concentrating on using up our 12x12 sticker sheets!
