Christmas in July

I can not believe that it is already July...where does the time go??? With that said, I could not resist to do a Christmas in July card with the new Let's Capture Our Memories Sketch challenge. Looking through my Christmas stash to find the perfect color combo and printed images, I decided to go with an Echo Park's collection called, "Happy Holidays". The fun tinsel ribbon is from Flomo. I think that it compliments this card nicely giving it a festive feel.


This fantastic sketch #127 was created by Nicole Nowosad


Be sure to play along this month. I would like to see your take on this sketch.

Getting Ready for Father's Day!

Who is ready to join in the fun and play along with us at Let's Capture Our Memories??? 
I had a creative blast making this Father's Day card. My printed papers are from Fancy Pants, "Like Father, Like Son" collection. My circle was created by masking out a circle and then stamping the top in white on the black portion of the card and black on the gray. I then added some blue Stickles to make it pop.


Here is the sketch that was created by Lynn.

LCOM Sketch 123

It's time again, for a Let's Capture Our Memories sketch challenge. I found some old vintage cards that my Mom had saved so many years ago. As a little girl, I remember my Mother and her friend sitting at the table cutting apart cards like these and then paper piecing certain parts back together for a 2D effect. They would then frame the card and hang them on the wall for decoration. I thought that it would be fun to create a Mother's Day card using a few of them. At 92 years young, I wonder if my Mom will remember that this was one of  her cards from her craft stash. It will be interesting to see. 


Here is Shirley's fun card sketch 123.
 The May's prize is a $10.00 Let's Capture Our Memories store gift certificate.

Quality Crest: Vintage Cards
Stampin' Up!: Cardstock
Martha Stewart: Butterfly punch
