Challenge Card

I finally got some time to craft tonight. I made this card to participate in the Saturday Stamping 411 sketch challenge. The in colors were used along with Fresh Cuts and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets. This card is also going to be made at my Cards for Troops workshop next Saturday.

I will preview more of my cards for next Saturday when I get done with them. I am trying to have at least 3 different cards to make. I'm hoping I get a good response so that I can design a few more cards that we can make to send for the troops. I am very passionate about this workshop since I am a military wife and know how great it would be to have a card sent from my husband for Mother's Day.

I am also hoping to get back to scrapping my son's album. We were back in Pittsburgh for 2 weeks introducing him to both sides of the family. I have tons of pictures I need to scrap from our trip. I hope to get somewhat caught up tonight and tomorrow.

No Time for Crafting

I have been having such a wonderful time on vacation. It's been great introducing my son to all of his family. Unfortunately I didn't bring anything to craft with so I have been starting to itch to get back home to craft. I have tons of pictures from this visit that I will love to scrapbook. We have a few more days of visiting then I will start to get back into crafting and posting when we are back and settled in this weekend. Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Birthday Cards

I'm hoping my sister and dad don't see this post because I made their birthday cards this weekend. I wanted to use some of my new supplies that I got from my workshop order that I placed. I also wanted to participate in my first sketch challenge. I have been wanting to participate in these to get some more people visiting my blog. I saw a sketch one that I knew I could make and would be perfect to use my sister's card to try it. I just can't wait to post this until after their birthdays. I absolutely love the one for the sketch challenge. I will try to list the supplies a little later because I am doing laundry, packing and cleaning for my trip to Pittsburgh. Just wanted to post this real quick.

Mother's and Father's Day Cards for the Troops

I have a great idea for my upcoming workshops. I found a charity who collects handmade cards to send to the troops overseas. These cards are used by the men and women to send to their loved ones. What a great way to support our troops and thank them for all that they do. Being a Navy wife, I completely understand how it feels to get anything from my husband when he's deployed. I think this is such a great idea. I am going to have a workshop to make Mother's Day and Father's Day cards to send to the charity. I am working on the details for these workshops. Any ideas or suggestions, leave me a comment. We need to have the cards for Mother's day mailed to the charity by April 15th. Let's get together and support our troops! Use an upcoming workshop to make cards to donate.
