Happy Wednesday, everyone! Are you gearing up for Thanksgiving? The weather is supposed to be “iffy” today; hopefully it will clear up by tomorrow! I have lots of birthdays coming up next month for which I need cards, so I used the Mojo Monday sketch for this week to get started:
It’s a tall and skinny challenge, so I made a 6 x 3 1/2” card, using Amazing Birthday in lots of bright colors:
The diagonal panel was embossed with the Lucky Stars EF; I paper-pieced the various portions of the stamp, then added some sequins and stars to jazz it up a bit! A little twine bow finished it off!
I used the same colors on the inside sentiment too:
Now I need to make a custom envelope for it! Thanks for visiting today!
Reading “Roll Over”…one of her favorite songs!

Happy Tuesday, peeps! I needed a get-well card for a sweet lady in my Bible study group who suffered a mini stroke. I thought this card full of springy colors would cheer her up!
My sketch is from Match The Sketch for this week:
I used floral images from Flower Patch in Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding, and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. DSP is Gold Soiree…such pretty colors!
We had a big production last week…making playdoh clothes for her doll!
Didn’t work quite how she planned, but it was a good learning experience and kept her occupied for quite a while! Enjoy your day!

Happy Sunday, peeps! Wow, what a busy week I just went through! I am so happy to see Sunday! My upline Pennie had a meeting for some of her downline at my church yesterday, and we had such a nice time! It’s always fun to reconnect with old friends and meet new ones!
Today it is my turn to be hostess for the Paper Players, and I have a sketch for you:
I have one last Thanksgiving card for you using this sketch, and I have to chuckle; this is in the mail already to my sister in South Carolina, and she happened to be sitting right next to me as I was typing this up, but she was on her iPad and not paying a bit of attention to me, so it will be a surprise to her when she goes home today and finds it in her mailbox!
As I look at my photo, the Very Vanilla circle looks almost stark white, but it really matches quite nicely IRL! My card base is Very Vanilla, and I added a Crumb Cake panel stamped with the retired Linen background stamp; the plaid is some retired DSP from a couple of autumns ago. The sentiment is from last month’s Paper Pumpkin kit! The turkey is a single stamp (also retired; I think it’s called GIve Thanks) that I stamped in Early Espresso and matted on an EE scallop:
I added a burlap ribbon layered with two EE ribbons, and on top, an acorn that I painted with acrylic paints:
On the inside, the turkey makes an appearance again, this time stamped in Crumb Cake, with a retired sentiment from Holiday Best stamped on top.
I hope you’ll find some inspiration with my sketch this week, and be sure to share your creation with us at the Paper Players! Check out what the other designers did as well!
I didn’t really get many photos from our meeting, but here is one of me and my little downline:
My friend Joan; me; my downline Laura; her downline Dawn; and my downline Jen. We had a lot of fun, learned lots of stuff and went home with lots of goodies!
And just so you don’t miss her too much, here’s Miss Cassidy at a local mall:
Enjoy your day!
