I used the copic markers with the stamp set from PTI. This was a fun project. Love this stamp set.

Sorry I haven't gotten my scarf posted yet. I just haven't got around to taking a picture of it yet. I made 4 pink scarves for a Breast Cancer swap but forgot to take a picture before I put them in the mail. So today I am posting a picture of a jackpot I came across today. I found all these stamps at a garage sale. Some of them have never been used. Well anyone who knows me, knows that I need new stamps terribly. (NOT!) Well anyway, I couldn't pass up a bargain so I wanted to share my good news. Let me know if anyone wants stamped images. I love sharing.

Fight Like a Girl

Today I had to come up with something for a swap entitled "Fight Like a Girl". The theme is breast cancer and so I decided to cover a composition notebook and then take coasters and make a post it note holder. Check back tomorrow and see the scarf I made with fall colors.

Card Kits for October

I have been quite busy today. Went to eat at our favorite Mexican restaurant and then I crafted all day. Today I am posting the card kits that I made this weekend. I am going to get together with some friends the first weekend in October and I thought I would make up some card kits. I am trying to apply new techniques with each one. I still have a couple more to make. Be sure and check back tomorrow and see what I made for a swap "Fight Like a Girl".

Christmas Card Challenge #6

Okay everyone I am going to give my first sketch posting a try. I was excited to make a Christmas card because now I am in the groove to be creative. I would love to see what everyone comes up with on my first IC Challenge. There is no time limit on these. So, please feel free to create some Christmas cards in September...

Here is the sketch for the September Christmas cards challenge. If you upload to public galleries, please use the Keyword ICC SEPTEMBER10.

Here is my sample card,

I used my scroll embossing folder which is a favorite of mine and then cut 1 3/4 inch circles with a SU punch. I then stamped Merry Christmas and added some ribbon. Had to dig in my scraps since I haven't bought any Christmas paper yet this year.

ICC9 Sketch Challenge

I decided to try this Inspired Crafters Sketch Challenge. If you would like to see more cards from this challenge, go to the blog of Inspired Crafters. They have great ideas for scrapbook pages and cards. On Sunday they will post a challenge for a Christmas card which I plan to do also. Going to get started on Christmas cards early this year and this is what is going to get me moving. I like to do these because it gives me ideas of what to do and some new creativity.

September Quilt

This was the wall quilt I made for the pediatric unit at the hospital I work in. I couldn't really come up with a theme for September. Someone suggested sunflowers and this is what I came up with. I am anxious no to start on October. Almost forgot the picture.

Composition Pad

I found these notebooks at Target for 25 cents so I thought wow what a bargain. So I decorated them up a bit and this is what I came up with. Love these purple colors.
