Happy Saturday!

Wow long week! Not really sure why but it was. Work wasn't overwhelming - peo ple seemed to be staying out of the hospital or at least not quite as many clamoring to get in so was a little slower this week. Managed to get some study time in - determined to take my CCRN (Certified Critical Care RN) this year. I keep putting it off year after year telling myself it doesn't make me a better nurse but need something now to climb the old corporate ladder so am going to do it. I HATE to study again - my brain just doesn't like it but am amazed at all I have absorbed over the years and really can guess my way through alot of it I think.
This week over at Unscripted Sketches I created this card for Sketch #40. I used some My Mind's Eye for this and a stamp by Stampabilities.

Then for my card this week over at Card Patterns I used some more of my stash (endless stash may I say) of My Mind's Eye - decided I was in a purple mood. Actually as much as most people hate purple I love it and am drawn to it. The stamp is Cornish Hens.

A couple of cards I did last week for different sites I haven't played at much before. The first is from Delightful Inspiration a site I found last weekend and am loving. Core'dinations all the way here together with my Cuttlebug folder.

The next is a sketch from Mojo Monday. For this I used some Basic Grey and a stamp from Elizabeth Bell. Isn't she sweet!
I'll have more later when I play with some more sketches. I also want to do another card or page with my new goodies from Core'dinations. Talk about some yummy papers - they have gone together with Jillibean Soup and Crate Paper to create some Core'dinations papers that are nothing less than fabulous. I created a card the other day (on an earlier blog) and I literally could just play and play and play with these new papers.

thanks for stopping by! Check later I'll have more


  1. I love them both! That US card is awesome! I love the bright colors and what you did with the sheer ribbon and button! Gorgeous!

  2. Wow - your US card is gorgeous!!! Love those papers & the sentiment on the circle... great 'out-of-the-box' thinking on this one!

  3. I love both cards! Love the colours matching together!

  4. Wow Debbie! I LOVE your Unscripted card! So beautiful...and that CP card...awesome.
    I didn't know you were a nurse. I am too!!! worked in critical care for years...

  5. These are beautiful Debbie! You always have such details on your cards! And you have a great eye for colors too! :)

    Have a fabulous weekend!

  6. Love your cards as always and how are you so productive?!

  7. Beautiful cards! I like that you interpreted the US square as a circle and the stitching detail on the CP card. I am so glad that I got the chance to join all you this week at CP!!

  8. Wow, you amaze me with all your creations, Debbie! You are truly a marvel at the sketches. I just love to see what all you've done. And good for you for using your stash. I'm trying to do that myself more this year, that and use my stamps more.
    Awesome job with the purple, too, by the way. I do have trouble with that color.

  9. WOW, WOW!! All of your cards are GORGEOUS!! I love the layout of the first one! And love the way you used color in the polar bear card! Beautiful work, Debbie!
