Here's a Christmas card for a kid using a Sketch and a little different colors.
The sketch is from  My Favorite Things #147.  I like this one and will make a few more using that sketch. 
 Join in at My Favorite Things for a sketch challenge starts Sat. and is due Tues. by noon.
Send A Smile 4 Kids Challenge  Early Holiday Wishes 4 Kids Challenge start 10/19 and ends 11/1.

They start early because they would like all the kids in the eight children*s hospitals they serve to receive a holiday card and it would be even better if the kids could choose a few more for friends or family they are missing while they spend the holidays in the hospital.  My supplies were from my stash so I do not have the company names of what I used.  Please join with Send A Smile 4 Kids Challenge and mail some cards in for kids.  Thanks.

Today at Just A Scrappin'  our challenge is to Create a layout of something we did to celebrate this past summer. I could only think of all the cards I made for Operation Write Home and Cards for Hospitalized Kids.  So I took pictures of the cards I have ready and then added the kind of embellishments I use on the many different kind of cards I make. Hope you can join us in this challenge at 'Just A Scrappin'.

Today at 'Just A Scrappin'  our challenge is to Create something that expresses who we are ( as a crafter, parent etc).  What a time I had with this one, after a week of thinking, going thru photos and thinking some more I did this...

 once I got started it went well.  I cut a sided circle from <cirle4> of Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge from Close to my Heart and used it as a frame, placing many of the sunset pictures my husband and I took over the 20+ years of travels.  Here are sunsets from Iowa to Australia, from New Zealand to China, from Russia to New Mexico  and others I don't remember there names. Then added the K&Company chipboard sliver glitter letters.  I like how it turned out. Hope you can join us in this great challenge at 'Just A Scrappin'. Thanks for visiting and come again!  sherry

here is my idea of a fall card with Sentiment.
I used the Xyron 510 to add adhesive to both the patterned ribbon and the plain paper for this card.  I like how the colors match.
1. I ran both the ribbon and the paper thru the 510 Creative station at the same time to save adhesive .
2. applied them onto card stock. 3. added to the card stock the "goodluck" sentiment. 4. I'll summit it to both Craft it up & Operation Write Home Bread designs for free shipping.  
Join both on either to day for fun and to help others.

Hope you can join us at 'Just A Scrappin' Challenge. This time it's a Pop Up card!   Here is the front that says Happy Thanksgiving, this as usual is all from my stash.  I added the gobble gobble and the pumpkin pie with small foam adhesive dots.  Inside of the card I used  white card stock at the 5.5 inch square  card size and cut 2" from each side on the fold for the pop up. Then I folded the tab into the card.  Glued the front (colored) side to the inside (white) making sure no glue was on the fold.  I added the 3D sticker with my sister in mind for this Holiday card.  Thanks for visiting and join us at 'Just A Scrappin'
