Die Cuttin' Divas Sketch Challenge

Hello and happy Tuesday.  I hope you all had a Happy Halloween.  We got quite a few kids this year.  The cutest little girl came by my house and she was wearing a princess dress.  She had the biggest smile on her face as she said trick or treat!  I asked her if she was having fun and she said "I'm having unicorn fun"!  I laughed so hard.  She totally made my night.  Ah, to be 6 again!

Anyway, on to this week's Die Cuttin' Divas challenge, which is our monthly sketch challenge based on this sketch.
I decided I better start making some Christmas cards so I made this one using the sketch:
 Paper: Recollections and Simple Stories
Tree die: Hero Arts
Stamp: Hero Arts
Bling: Queen & Co.
Ink: Close to My Heart

Die Cuttin' Divas Anything Goes challenge

Happy Halloween (almost).  I can't wait to see the kids at my door tomorrow night!  I'm really looking forward to it.

We are doing an Anything Goes challenge this week.  You can showcase any project you want to, just remember to use a die cut on your project.

I decided to make one last Halloween card for my project.
All the paper and die cuts I used for my
card are from Doodle Bug Designs.

Aren't the paper and die cuts just adorable??  I've had this paper/die set for a while and I was glad I got to use it for my card.  My Cricut was acting up so I'm very happy I had this set on hand.

Please stop by Die Cuttin Divas  and check out what the rest of our talented design team members have made this week.  I hope you will join us for our challenge. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope you all have a Happy Halloween!!

Die Cuttin' Divas Any Animal Challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I had lunch with one friend on Saturday and then breakfast with another friend on Sunday.  I had not seen either of them for a while so it was so much fun catching up.  Nothing like hanging with your friends and having some laughs.  I've known both of them for a long time and I just love when we get together.

Ok, on to this week's Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge, which is any animal.  

I decided to use a cute dog/cat/pig stamp set that I have.  I don't know who makes these stamps because they were a gift in a clear plastic bag and there is no name on the stamps.  They sure are cute!  Here's my card:
 Paper: I used scraps for this card
I stamped and colored the kitties and 
then cut them out on my Brother Scan N Cut
Die for sentiment: My Creative Time
Sentiment: My Pink Stamper
Ribbon: Michaels
Dots: Cloud 9 Designs

Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge - What Makes You Happy?

Hello and happy Tuesday.  I hope you are all having a good week.  Welcome to this week's Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge, which is What Makes You Happy?  

For me, the beach makes me very happy.  I love nothing more than taking my chair, umbrella and Kindle and heading to the beach.  I love the smells and sounds of the ocean.  It's very peaceful and it always relaxes me.  My favorite time to go to the beach is September and October.  It's still plenty warm here and most of the tourists are gone and the kids are back in school so I don't have to battle with the crowds for a parking space!

Here is the card I made for this week's challenge:
Paper: Recollections
Beach scene die cut:  A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge
Beach sign: Simple Stories
Sun die: My Creative Time
I added Wink of Stella to the sand but it's hard to see
