as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

Get Sketchy #11 and Paper Cutz #14


 Okay, first of all, I cannot believe I have posted at least one card every night this week!  That is an all time record for me.  That might tell you that I haven't done much else this week!  LOL!  Oh well, it has been a slow week.  My son who is on crutches doesn't need surgery, just physical therapy.  And so since he has still been on crutches, it's been school and home basically.  School is out tomorrow and my hubby is off work tomorrow through Sunday.  Yea!  A 3 day weekend for all of us!  Maybe we will get some things done around the house or maybe I will just get more cards done as I am still behind and clearly now on a roll!

Here are cards I have made for some Thursday challenges --- Get Sketchy and Paper Cutz

Witching You a Happy Halloween

Originally I was going to use a witch hat stamp for this card along with the broom, but found it was too much with incorporating buttons also.  So, the witch's hat will go on another card.  I had a lot of fun making this card.  The orange paper I made with Versamark and burnt orange cardstock.  I also used this paper behind the title circle that was versamarked and embossed in black as was the decorative stamped doodles on each side.  Both patterned papers I outlined with black chalk to give it more of a witchy look.  I used black rick rack between the papers and then decided to border everything, which I think helps give the card an extra pop.  The broom is a Jolee sticker enhanced.  It originally had gold for the bristles.  I took those off and found some straw from an old straw coaster, wrapped tape around it to stick and then wrapped straw wire to cover the tape.


Autumn Is In The Air

This was a quick card, under 45 minutes!  Fastest I've ever worked!  I cut out the pumpkins from patterned scrapbook paper for one of the three patterned papers.  I am hoping the embossed brown paper is counted as patterned paper as well.  The title is versamarked and embossed in a brick brown powder.  Brown ribbon is added for some flair.  Even though this was a very quick card, I am liking it!
