FTHS - Sketch & Image Challenges - GO ME!

Happy Saturday All!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. We've been snowy-iced in since late Thursday and we are happy as clams. It's been freezing rain since/snowy slush since Monday night actually. But we finally got enough overnight Thursday and all day yesterday for it to be a "stay home" kinda situation. We live in Texas and people just do not drive in this. Sigh...

The good news is, I've been in my craft room. YAY!! Aaaannnnd...

Tonight I am presenting you two cards. Both are using the I {heart} Card Sketches with a tWiSt #98 AND both are using February's Free Stamp of the Month Digi.



Here is the picture of the sketch.


The card recipes for each are below the cards. I hope you like them. Thanks for visiting.

Card Recipe ~ Ink: Copic Markers & white gel pen. Paper: PTI. Pink Polka Dot DP is PTI and the other two were from my scrap box. Ribbon: PTI Black Grosgrain. Other Embellishments – Sparkly Flowers are from K&Co (they sell them in every color @ Hobby Lobby).

Card Recipe ~ Ink: Copic Markers & Sakura Sparkle Pen. Paper: Base is PTI. Pink Polka Dot and Green DP are PTI and the other is from my scrap box. Ribbon: Stampin Up! Other Embellishments – Flowers are from K&Co (they sell them in every color @ Hobby Lobby). I put a piece of black and white polka dotted wash tape behind the ribbon.

I am a Guest Designer this month at From the Heart Stamps and I'm THRILLED to be one. So check back because I will have several cards and things coming up.

Blessings All!

Saint Philip Neri Card


Hi there,

Hope you are well.



This is a card I made a friend of mine to give to her Priest. People are sending him cards for his birthday (I think). Anyway - it was a lot of fun to make.

I found a picture of Saint Philip Neri and a quote by him and chose a sepia tint and then added metal drops and torn paper and basic ribbon.

I love how they turned out.

Here is some information on St. Philip Neri.



I hope and pray you are having a great day.

Hugs & Blessings,

Em

i {heart} Card Sketches with a tWiSt – # No. 98

Happy Sunday All,

What a great weekend. AND North Texas finally has a taste of Winter. Ok - it's ice, but it's better than 80 degrees all winter (for me, at least).

That said,

One of my favorite Digital Image/Stamp Companies is From the Heart Stamps (as you all know). I love all things BirdBrain and all things rain. YES - don't you love the rain?


Anyway - tonight's Sketch challenge is to use any old sketch. I've chosen this one:




Here is the card I made. I used the image Rainy Day Birdbrains.  Besides the fact that I didn't take a very good picture (note the shadows - BOO!)... I love the card. What a fun and easy-to-use sketch!
This is the inside of the card. What was put the sentiment in the inside. And isn't the sentiment true? Life is about rain and rainbows... black clouds and silver linings. Aren't we blessed to know that?

Card Recipe ~ Ink: Copic Markers & white gel pen. Paper: PTI and Scrap DP. Ribbon: PTI!  Other Embellishments - Flower: K&Co (Hobby Lobby); Orange Button, And Stickles on the rain drops & puddle.

You still have a couple hours to play along. Put a card together and join in!

I have several more posts coming up (I know - A MIRACLE). lol

OH - and one more thing... Please like my Page on FB - Em's Craft Closet to keep up with my posts.

Blessings all. Have a great rest of your evening and a Happy Monday.
