It is time to play along with our challenge from Sketch Saturday!! We would love to see what you come up with using our sketch. For my take...I flipped the sketch this week and used a digi from our challenge sponsor MMedel Illustrations. What will you come up with???
Sailing Home stamp set from Stampin Up is becoming a favorite of mine....perfect set for this Florida girl. Here I am using it for the Sunday Stamps sketch challenge. 3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts smelled...freshly brewed coffee each morning//flowers delivered to the office every Monday morning//salty beach air
Yesterday I used a Library Challenge (draw your inspiration from the title, cover, or story of the chosen book) and today I am using another Library Challenge. The book for this challenge is The Art Of Stripes. The Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge was a great compliment to the Library Challenge. I love this Beautiful You stamp set from Stampin Up. She is such a classy looking lady and I love adding rhinestones to create a necklace for her. This time I left the sentiment off saving it until I know who I am sending it too. 3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts full...bathtub full of hot water//my coffee cup//guest list for my daughters wedding.
Again today I am combining two challenges...The Library Challenge (use the cover, title, or story of the chosen book to inspire your creation) and the Inspired By Challenge. I pulled the lighthouse from the Library challenge and the copper from the Inspire By challenge.
3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts painted...glass painting done by my father as a teenager passed on to our son when he moved into his apartment//snowman winter wonder land picture my daughter did when she was 5...it still comes out every Christmas//the B. Buckly Moss handing in our bedroom that was gifted to us by our church in VA when we moved...precious to me!!
I have a stash of buttons so this sketch challenge from CAS(E) this Sketch was easy to pull off!!! And since I had a baby shower yesterday, a baby card was needed!! Buttons and baby just seem to go together!! 3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts that made you smile...wedding ceremony of two dear friends this weekend//my hubby modeling the suit for our daughters wedding...he is gonna look so handsome//the realization this morning that I had several honorable mentions from blog challenges on my cards!!
Fusion time...use just the sketch or use just the photo or use both!! Today I am using both on my card for the Fusion Challenge. This challenge is always a fun one for me and I usually try and meet both elements of the challenge. Thank you Fusion for the inspiration!! 3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts empty...our empty nest--I know some couples struggle with an empty nest but my hubby and I are enjoying being just the two of us!! Don't misinterpret--I miss my kids and always look forward to their visits!! Credit Card balance--empty!! One of the best feelings, not carrying a balance!! Dirty clothes hamper--starting off the weekend with it being empty is a gift!!!
SUMMER was the theme challenge for Paper Players...the colors from the Color Throwdown challenge fit perfect for a summer theme (Navy, Coral, Teal and Cream). So...I am using both challenges for today's card. Once a gain Stampin Up's new Sailing Home stamp set and matching dies was perfect for today's creation.
3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts in what you are reading...YouVersion devotional that I am reading with my sister...this is a special daily connection we have over the miles//My Kindle book...my unwind activity at the end of each day//prompt scripts for my new job...I am so thankful for my new job, there may be a huge learning curve but I am loving it!!
Freshly Made Sketch had another fun sketch. I paired it with Stampin Up's Above the Clouds stamp set. This set can be found in the new catalog that just came out and it has a matching punch! Last month we went to a hot air balloon festival and it was such and amazing event. If you ever have the opportunity to go to a hot air balloon glow...you really should!! it was the coolest thing ever!!
3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts). a gift of peace, hope, joy...Psalms 91 has all three packed into one place!!!
A good man knows how to relax and find calm!! This stamp from Stampin Up's A Good Man set is perfect for the CASology challenge this week....CALM!! 3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts funny...our son--he can make me laugh!! Embarrassing moments from long ago--not funny then but looking back they make us laugh now!! April Fools jokes between a grandma and her grandson!!
This awesome stamp set and matching dies....Sailing Home....is now available from Stampin Up's new catalog!! Living in Florida made this new set a must have for me! Today's card was inspired by the sketch challenge from CAS(E) this Sketch. It may not look like the sketch at first glance, but if you study the card you will see where each element is.
3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts)3 gifts orange...a sunrise...the beginning of a new day!! // a sunset...the close of another day!! // the fruit...refreshing on a hot summer day!! Update:

I am married to a wonderful man and we have 2 children--a son who lives in Long Island, NY and a daughter who lives in Chicago. We live in Florida, which feels so very far away from our kids especially since we have a grand-daughter and a second grandchild on the way!! For over 20 years I was a Stampin Up Demonstrator, but in 2021 I let go of my demonstratorship. I still love scrapbooking & creating cards and have enough Stampin Up products to last me till eternity...so I will keep on creating!! Proud to be a daughter of the Most High God--who was and is and is to come!!
