MDSM Challenge # 28 Let's Embellish

So this week , as an added challenge to the sketch  at MDS MONDAY is to make a fun embellishment cluster on your project. This was a interesting challenge, I had to think about which embellishment cluster to use.  I thought about it and decided to use my favorite flourish set Baroque Motif from Stampin Up , and the Circus Circus download embellishment.  Looking through my picture I came across our 30th anniversary pictures from Lake Tahoe, and thought these are perfect!

MDS Monday Challenge ~ #27

Challenge # 27 at MDS Monday is all about the above sketch!  This was a fun sketch, as it had a lot of items on the page.  I enjoy a challenge with a sketch and this one really made a pretty page.  I used the Joyful Times download from Stampin Up for this page.  It is a pretty kit with nontraditional Christmas colors.

The End Of Summer

Our Oldest Grandson, Peyton

Our Youngest Grandson Andy

Both of my sweet boys, Peyton and Jacob
With the summer winding down I thought I better try and get some of those pictures of the grandchildren on to scrapbook pages!  We have really had a fun summer, swimming, splash pad, and water park fun.  I thought I would do some digital scrapbooking as I am able to finished pages much quicker.  I just love my MDS from Stampin Up, so here are 3 finished pages from our summer fun!  Hope you all have had a wonderful summer as well!

Happy Birthday Card

Saw on Facebook yesterday a sweet little story about this little girl battling cancer. She will be turning 6 on the 23rd and her family was asking everyone to send birthday cards to her.  Her mother said she loves to get mail. I just got right to work on a cute Pop N Cut card for her!!!  Praying she wins her fight.

A Happy Birthday Card

Good morning all, hope you all are having a great day!! Today I am sharing a card I made using the   Sailboat stamp from SNS, and Sparkling Snow semi-trans glitter.  I used shades of yellow, orange and blue inks and sponged onto my cardstock.  After blending the inks I stamped the image and colored with my blender pen using blue and green ink.  I think this turned out really pretty and touch of sparkle from the glitter just finished my card.

If you would like more details on how to make this card please see my SNS gallery for more details
Thanks for stopping by and remember....Keep Stamping!!
