CPS Sunday

Sunday - means getting ready to go back to work and Monday's are 15 hour days for me. I do an extra partial shift as charge in the Trauma ICU on Monday afternoons - the fill-in space. But it's fun to keep my hands on with the ICU team so I usually enjoy it. But I seem to have this little cloud that haunts me and we usually end up so busy it's crazy! Today I just have one card to share - my CPS card. Spend the rest of the day working on some pages for Core'dinations and my cards for DT work.

For today I decided to stick with Core'dations cardstock and used a stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms.
Also sharing a page I did for Core'dinations using only core cardstock - no fancy sheets this time just different shades of blues.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful Saturday - finally we are starting to see some sun around here! Hard to believe all this winter belongs in south Texas! Today I have a card from Unscripted Sketches to show you.
My Mind's Eye papers - using up my stash!

Over at Delightful Inspirations Faith has this adorable little image - I really think this is my favorite so far. Just needed bright happy paper and I found this Basic Grey in my stash and went with it! The stamp for the sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms.

Well just finished up my Get Sketchy card for the week - pulled out the very last of this line of my Scenic Route (tear! tear!) Going to oh so miss them. The stamp is my new stamp from Unity Company - joined their monthly stamp club and yum - love the new stamps I got.
Thanks for stopping by - will have more later - just need to get some grocery shopping done first!

Sunday with CPS & Card Patterns & a newbie

It's just beautiful here today - about 70! Unfortunately it's not supposed to last and be down in the 40's again by Tuesday - but I'm enjoying every minute of it!

First of all let me show you my card for Card Patterns today. The team was graciously sponsored by PaperWorks Co. and send me this adorable stamp - with all my grandson's this will probably get alot of use!
Our design team was generously sponsored by PaperWorks Co:

"PaperWorks Co (fondly known as PWCO) is a online scrapbooking and rubberstamping supplies store based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Besides carrying an array of supplies (think Copics, Nesties, Cuttlebug, etc), we have recently branched out to include our own line of line of deeply etched rubber stamps. Our in-house Design Team consists of a bunch of SUPER talented ladies from US and Canada, and you can find their work at our blog. Make sure to check them out!"

The prize: A gift certificate value of $39.99 to redeem any of PWCO and Little Loud stamps. [The winner can mix and match whatever stamps she like, as long as the value does not exceed $39.99.]
The papers I used were some from American Crafts - boy have the rocked with new lines this year - I can't get enough of them! Markers were Copic.

Next is my card for CPS blog this week - great sketch and guess what more American Crafts (yeah hit the LSS store for the first time in a LONG time and bought every piece they had! AND thinking hard about going back for more! The stamp is Autumn Leaves (an old one I had), then glazed it and added some Doodlebug glitter to the centers. I used Spellbinders to cut my tag, a Cornish Heritage Farms Stamp, my Cuttlebug to emboss the outer frame and then stitched around the smaller frame. Of course the background cardstock and the frame are from Core'dinations. And check out the new Martha Stewart punch I got last week. So pretty!

This last one is from a new site I found called Crazy Challenges. I've been on a peach craze lately so this I Do from AC was perfect (see I used it up in the card above too!)Thanks for stopping by!

It's Saturday again!

Wow - great ready this is an entire weeks worth of cards AND I had yesterday off so got to do alot of sketches. Also there's a sketch-a-thon going on over at My Sketch World and I'm Guest Designer again this month so have been working on getting through 20 sketches this month! First of all let me show you the sketch and my card for Unscripted Sketches. This week they have combined their sketch with a color challenge. I think I got pretty close to the colors.

Next is my card with the freebie image from Delightful Inspiration. For this I used some new American Crafts papers I got from the LSS. Let me tell you AC has rocked new papers - I LOVE them all (as you will see I especially loved this line and used most of it the last two days!)

Next is the sketch over at 2 sketches 4 you that Kazan created this week. I used my Core'dinations cardstock, embossed it with a cuttlebug folder and then added some Imaginisce papers.

Next we have this weeks sketch from Get Sketchy I used, yes, more of the papers from American Crafts to do this together with an stamp from C. C. Designs.
Next ( remember I told you this was LONG!) is my take on the Sketch and Stash sketch. I used some Best Creations papers and this adorable freebie image.
The next card is from the sketch over at Delightful Sketches. More of the American Crafts and a image from The Stamping Boutique.

Then below are some of the cards I've done for the My Sketch World
February Sketch-A-Thon. First is with Best Creations papers, second with another new line from Best Creations, third with yet another new line from Best Creations, and the last with some Basic Grey.Once again thanks for stopping by - your comments make my day!

Tuesday with Mojo Monday

Here's my card for the Mojo Monday sketch this week. I found this adorable Sassafras Lass at the LSS. I have MADE myself stay out of there for just this reason. I bought a TON of new goodies and had to drag myself out of the store. Darn now I got the new stuff fever and doubt I'll be able to keep myself away!

Thanks for looking!

Used some Bo Bunny papers for this one together with the image from Delightful Inspirations.
