Relay For Life

I have some Relay For Life cards that I made left over from a prior Relay For Life.  I would love to sell them as I will donate 100% of the money to Relay For Life this year.  I will be part of the walk happening here in my town on April 12th.

Relay for Life is dear to my heart. I have lost many to the fight of cancer...including my mom. 

These cards are all A2 size and comes with an envelope to mail.  I will accept any donation for $5.00 and more!!  Please go here and leave a donation.

Email me the donation amount you submitted, the card you would like and I will send it right off to you!!
Most are blank so someone can handwrite something special inside but if there is something special you want inside I can add that for you.

Thank you in advance!

Sketch Challenge #5-Christmas Snowman

It was time for Christmas card and another sketch.  Wow, all these challenges are keeping me going...getting a lot done!

Here is the sketch I used.

The paper I used came from Stampin Up paper pak called Winter Frost.  The snowman is an old Stampin Up stamp.  Christmas tree is s sizzix die.  For the snow sparkle I used stickles!  Very easy to do
One challenge I have is cutting the strips and then taping them down so they are even width. I did mine a different way.
I cut my pieces the length I wanted but the width I was not too particular.  The piece I wanted in the middle was actually matted.  I then glued down the right and left strips with the edge about the same as the mat on the middle strip.  I then placed the middle strip down.  Now they are look like they are all centered correctly!
For the snow along the bottom I ripped white paper.  

I don't recall ever paper piecing before but it fit well for this one.  I stamped the snowman on white cardstock.  The hat and scarf was stamped on a small piece of scrap paper.  I did not stamp the whole snowman. I just wanted those pieces.  I cut them out as well as the buttons.  Glued them on the snowman.  Cut the whole image out to glue down on the card.  With the hat, scarf and buttons matching the background just made the whole card flow and come together real well!

thanks for stopping!

Sketch Challenge #4-Butterfly Sympathy

Butterflies galore!

Well...3 anyway lol.  
My first attemp was a flop.  I did not get them even at all.  For the second attempt, I drew a light pencil mark across the card and it helped...still a little off but that is ok!  I stamped the first butterfly from a Martha Stewarts clear rubber stamp set and stamped that in the middle of the card with versamark.  The left and right butterflies were matched up wing tip to wing tip and the bottom of the wings were set along the pencil line.  I used heat embossed the images and sponged Versafine Majestic Blue all over it.  

This is the sketch from Challenge #4 that is used.

I used a ruler to draw another light pencil light where I wanted the blue to end and I cut along that line but going around the butterflies.  
I had a scrap piece of paper that had like a blue crackle paint on it.  It looked perfect for the bottom half.  
Thanking of you sentiment is one of the stamps in the Stampin Up Wet Lands set.

I am going sympathy, Christmas and birthday so I don't get dragged down by too many birthday or too many sympathy.  This way it also gets my Christmas cards started.  So far it is working!

Have a crafty day tomorrow!
