CR84FN - Blueberry Cobbler

My Goddaughter, Britni is still in hospital. She had her second and third surgeries on Monday, Oct. 24th. Her knee was so badly damaged; torn ligaments, cartilages and the muscle was detached and not in it's normal and correct position. Poor girl endured 8 1/2 hours of surgeries. Then yesterday, she was diagnosed with pneumonia. If you have it in your heart to pray for Britni please do so. This young woman is only 18 years old. Pray for her Poppa too as he is very heartsick at seeing his little girl in this state. Thank You.
As you may have guessed, this is a get well card for Britni.
I have entered this card in the CR84FN challenge.
Thank You

Just Punchin' Paper

This was a really fun card to make. I just punched 1 3/8 inch circles and laid them side by side in layers from bottom to top. My card uses 25 circles. The top portion of my card is a dsp cut and edged in a scallop with a die. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! Swirls & Curls Verses set. The ribbon is SU Baha Breeze.

Get Well Soon Britni

This past week my God duaghter, Britni was in an automobile accident. She rolled her Ford Explorer 5 times. She broke both of her legs and has fluid around her lungs. On Monday, Oct. 17 they did surgery on her legs. In one leg, the bone was crushed so they had to put a metal plate in with 6 screws. Britni is only 18 years old. She's been in my prayers constantly and I wanted to make a special card just for her (her favorite color is PINK). I'm sharing Britni's card with you.

My Fall Class Oct. 15, 2011

We created these four cards.

Then we decorated these little boxes.

Then I threw this card into the mix at the last moment.
We were a pretty small group but we made up for the lack of participants by playing and laughing and just having a lot of F U N!

Peace on Earth - TSTC#81

Let's get Twisted! Today I love the sketch Anam provided the dt with this time. It's CAS and I could dress it up any way I like. So I die cut the heart and then stitched around the edges. Added a bedazzled snowflake and a stamped sentiment along with a few buttons and called this one a wrap. I hope you will join us this week for the challenge. I think you'll enjoy the sketch and the "TWIST". No I won't give the twist away. You'll have to check it out for yourself at the Twisted Sketches Blog. While your there paruse the other DT members creations. They've cranked out some beauties for this one!

Leaves of a Tree - JFF

The tree is from Stampin' Up! It's item # 123846 and can be purchased HERE. The sentiment is from Day of Gratitude which is item #120835 and can be purchased HERE. If you buy both sets from me at the same time I'll give you $2.00 off.

To make my card I brayered the background. Then I stamped the tree in pumpkin pie ink. Then with my markers: More Mustard, River Rock, Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, and Cajun Craze I colored the various leaves. The tree trunk was colored in using Early Espresso. Then I highlighted with the Signo Gel Pen.

I then punched 2 bats and folded them in half to make my hinges. Sponged some Always Artichoke around the edges, matted with black on Pumpkin Pie cs. Called it done!

If you'd like to purchase the stamps mentioned in this post please contact me at 2schaubs@sbcglobal.net . Thanks

JFF - CASE-ing

The first card I CASE-D was from Beate's Fresh & Fun --  
October 13, 2011 Masculine leaves. However for my card I chose to go with a Christmas holly instead of fall leaves. I used the Stampin' Up! set Peaceful Season to create my card. The embossing folder used is SU Petals A Plenty. Inks used are SU Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and Lucky Limeade. My brad is a corduroy button brad from SU.
How'd I do Beate?
 The second card I CASE-D was drawn from the Nov/Dec 2011 issue of PaperCraftsMagazine pg. 34.

Hope you like my offerings for today. I sure had a good ball of fun creating them to share with you.
If you like what you see or have any questions please feel free to e-mail me or leave your question in a comment. THANKS!

Grateful Greetings - TTT54

Top Tip Tuesday #54 - Use the sketch.
My "TIP" --- When using a die and wanting a layered effect on the piece you are cutting, it is smarter to layer first adhering the layers before you try to cut. As you can see with my card, I did not cut my layers first. So there was some shifting of the dsp and cs. TFL

22 for Treats

Trick or Treat,
smell my feet,
give me something
GOOD TO EAT!
Remember that little rhyme?
Well, your trickster will be moon over stars for one of these little gifties. These were created using the Stampin' Up! Petal Cone Die. I cut equal pieces in orange and black and put them together to make these Halloween candy holders. Since his first year of school (pre-k till now 2nd grade) I have been making gifts for him and his classmates for holidays. This time I chose the Petal Cone Die to make the little gift boxes. There's various stickers my hubs picked up for me from one of my local craft shops. The little scalloped pieces (part of the die), I chose to make the focal point. The orange and black banners are also a part of the die and I wrote "Happy Holloween from Zackary" on each one. The kiddoes are going to LOVE these!

This week at Twisted Sketches I played with a rolled felt flower. The felt is cut 1 inch by 1 foot. then folded in half lenghtwise and stitched along the selvages. Then I snipped along at 1/4 inch intervals. The I simply rolled my felt around and glued it to a piece of cardstock using Crystal Effects. Make a pretty rosette.
If you'd like to play along with us at Twisted Sketches please pop on over to their blog and follow the sketch and the "TWIST" to create your card. Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT and leave them some love, they'd REALLY appreciate it!
