One sheet wonder gift set

Hi all,

Hope you have had a good weekend. It's been a good one here - the temps have risen quite a bit. Today has been dreary and rainy, but the upside???  We looked out the window earlier and there were 12 deer in our yard, just nibbling away!

I thought I'd share a pretty set that I made one day several months ago. A friend, Sally McDonald is our local Stampin'Up gal, and she had us all out for a one sheet wonder day. She just brought out OODLES of stamps, inks, cardstock and embellishments, and let us create.  

I had been wanting to make a nice set to send our daughter-in-law, who sends quite a few cards, so here's what I made for Alicia:

Thanks for stopping by!  Hopefully, I'll soon be done with taxes, remodeling, and road trips, and be able to stalk ya'll a bit more often!

Hugs and smiles,

Patti J.

Finally created something...

Hey there!

Can't believe I am finally back with a quick project. I began the intensive jobs of remodeling our fireplace, preparing 1099's, and getting tax info together.  Whew....busy here!

Thought I'd play along with a fun sketch challenge at Power Poppy. The challenge was to go to PageMaps and grab a sketch, and create something using their beautiful products.  Here's what I made:

I used this sketch (map):

Cute, right???

I used the Power Poppy digital set 'Get Wool Soon' for my card. Since my recipient is not sick, just someone that knits A LOT, I used a die cut instead of a get well sentiment.

All coloring is done with Copics, the designer paper is some Stampin'Up scraps, not sure who made the die cut, and some Glossy Accents were added to the mug for a bit of dimension.

Hope you're having a good January. I'll try to pop in and out of here once in a while!
For now, it's back to my ladder!!!

Hugs and grins,

Patti J.

Thanks to all of you who left comments on my blog for the Seasons Giving Blog Hop.
I'll be announcing winners later in this post.

But first...
A very belated Happy New Year to each of you. It's been a busy
January already for us.

I borrowed these fun dies from my bestie, Shirley, found some sparkly papers at Hobby Lobby, and here are the NewYear cards that were created for our kids and their beautiful families.

As always, we are eager to see them all again!  Those babies have all stolen our hearts,
and just think...we are getting another one mid March!

On to the winners - (thanks for hanging in here and reading about our 'grands'!)

I used an online random drawing program, and my winners are:

Rebecca Yahrling
Beverly S.

CONTRATULATIONS Rebecca and Beverly!

I will contact both ladies, and hopefully, have their packages on the way pronto!

Thanks again for being such wonderful cyber friends!!!

Hugs to you all,

Patti J.
