A Great Big Hello!

Hello!

I hope wherever you are, you are having a great day!

I'm doing better, and decided to make a card for today's Repeat Impressions Challenge.

It's time for a new sketch challenge at The House that Stamps Built!
Wendy has asked us to create a project using this awesome sketch:


For my card today, I used these Repeat Impressions Stamps:


I'm so excited about these words!  Wendy has added some new word sets to the store! Be sure to click on the above link, and check them out!!!  What fun!

Now then, being the rowdy trouble maker that I am, I simply 'had' to flip the sketch!
Here's my card:

How Are Ewe?

Hello there!

I haven't posted in a good while, so thought I'd share a card that I made while
enjoying a 'girl's day' at my friend, Shirley's.

Shirley has an amazing girl cave, complete with OODLES of stamps I've never had the pleasure to work with.  This is a set by Gerda Steiner, and we had a lot of fun inking it up!

I think the sunshine background is Our Daily Bread, but can't recall!

When I finished this one, I knew it had to go to our granddaughter in Germany. She has
several 'sheep' toys, including a pretty big one that Grandpa bought for her before she
was even born.  She also sleeps with her 'Sheepie', so this was her card!




Hope you are enjoying your Friday, and getting ready for a nice, relaxing
weekend.  We are looking forward to church on Sunday - haven't been since August 1st!
It's good to be feeling well enough to attend!

Happy Weekend,

Patti J.

Long time, no see...

I have been MIA for a while!

On August 5th, I had some surgery, and ended up with several major
complications.  I've yet to get into my creative space and play.
Well, that's not entirely true. I tried today, and threw away four of four cards.

Perhaps tomorrow....

In the meantime, I'm being featured today, over on the Perfect PaperCrafting Blog.

Hope you'll hop over and leave me some sweet comments!!!

If I've not been by your blog in a while, I apologize. I simply haven't felt like being
up and about.  Each day brings better things, and hopefully, I'll soon be back
to my regular stalking self :)

Hugs to all,

Patti J.

Sun, Sand, and Surf

It's time for a new challenge at The House that Stamps Built!
Today is a Designer's Choice Challenge, and Cheri Weston is our talented
challenge hostess. She's asked us to create a project with the theme:

Fun with giraffes

Hi there!

I have a fun post today!  I was recently asked to create some 'giraffe' cards,
for a lady who wanted to give 7 cards to her daughter - one each day, leading
up to her birthday!

It was a lot of fun, creating 'just because', and I am happy to share them with you today.

Here's what I made:

This one uses a digital image from Bugaboo stamps. Cute, right???
Love that sweet face!



I can't remember whose image this one is - yikes! I borrowed some
giraffe stamps from my friend, Shirley, and this was one of them.


The Dazzle On stamp is an older stamp from Great Impressions.

On the inside is a computer generated sentiment, and an OLD stamp set from TAC.


Here is another one that I can't remember!!!


This gorgeous giraffe is from Repeat Impressions. LOVE this!

The inside is a sentiment I printed from 'someplace online'!!!

Last, but not least, here is another great digi image from Bugaboo stamps.
Look at those critters having a party just for Ashleigh!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Hope you enjoyed my furry friends :)

Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.

P.S. LOTS of great mats on these cards that were created using my Perfect Papercrafting tools!

You are My Sunshine

Happy Saturday!

What a fun time I had, creating a card to share today, using some great stamps from Great Impressions.

For this card, I used:



Don't you just LOVE this stamp?

I can remember my mom singing that to me over and over again,
as she would sit and brush tangles out of my long, thick hair!
Oh....those precious memories!

See you next Saturday with another project featuring some amazing stamps from Great Impressions

I hope you will check out our current Great Impressions Challenge, and if you use some Great Impressions stamps make sure you link them up in our Customer Gallery!

Thanks for stopping by,
Patti J.
