In honor of my birthday, I made myself a card- I used the sketch at Midnight Madness- Oh and did I mention: SMC is the bonus sponsor for this weeks challenge over there?!?!! Make sure to stop by and say HI - There are lots of goodies to win!!!
I used Toga Birthday, which is available in a couple of the sale packs- Please bare with the coloring, it's my first time using copic markers and I am NO good at them-hopefully with a little practice, I will catch on.
And here is another card-This one is for the Paper Cutz Challenge. This week was to make a get well card. Be sure to check out the rest of the DT cards and join in the challenge over there. I also used the sketch for Sew Many Challenges-
This weeks Sew Special Spotlight is Cabios Corner! Cabio has done an amazing job with her projects and she also has a few tutorials thrown in the mix. I just purchased a huge bunch of copics and Cabio's recent tutorial on coloring hair, really helped me a lot! Thanks for a great blog Cabio!

As some of you know, my son has just recently been diagnosed with a speech disorder. In short-terms his brain cannot get his mouth to do what it says, so words do not come out like they do with us. It's been very difficult on me and also the family and he he is getting where he knows he cannot talk, no matter what he tries, so it's starting to take a toll on him now too. There are also other things that come with the disorder, but most of the other things are easier to manage. Anyway, because of this, he has therapy with someone who gets to play with him (what a wonderful job, huh) to help him with his social skills (also another symptom) and she also helps us learn to communicate with him-- and another that comes to help him learn to speak-at this point it is through sign-language. All of this has just started in the last couple weeks and has messed up my entire schedule.
I don't normally discuss private family things on my blogs but it is because of all of these things, I will not be able to post new images on Tuesdays, but will be changing it to Wednesdays. I will still have the new images on sale for the week they are released and will do my very best to upload one every week, but in case I miss one or two, I hope you will understand. I have met some fantastic and caring people in this blog world and I don't want to let you down, but for obvious reasons, I have some new things to deal with at home.
Sew (I can't help it) on to this weeks new image.... I am NOT a frog person, but there are a lot of people out there that love frogs and I get several requests for them-For those frog lovers, Meet Freddy and Frieda- This set includes several sentiments that are "Frog" related. You can see them detailed below-All of this for $5 and this week they are on sale for $2.50 for all- Check out the other specials too: Tight now we have 8 packs that have 30 images in them for only $10 each. That comes to less than .35 cents per image.
--- I made this card for the new >Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and will also be adding it to the >Creative Belli Blog that I just found. Oh and I also found a new blog called >Flutter By Wednesdays that I am entering this in- This card speaks love, doesn't it LOL...Well, if anything I love pink and green together :)
I used a Martha Punch on the bottom and layered it and added a few butterfly Dazzles and added some stickles, but it's hard to see all that in the pictures. And last (of course) I sewed along the edges with some bright pink thread.
If you subscribe to the Sew Many Cards Newsletter, then you already have seen that we have started a new thing where we will be looking for fantastic blogs that we love. All you have to do is join one of our challenges so we can find you and you could be the next Sew Special Spotlight and get a badge just like this one.
During my travels, I found Peggy R and her blog Colorful Designs Can you say "WOW!" Her cards are wonderful, bright, detailed, the whole shabang! Make sure to stop by and say "HI" - You will not be disappointed.
Thanks for sharing your creativity with us Peggy- we appreciate it!
I made this card for the new Midnight Madness sketch this week. I used a Tied Heart that will be the freebie at our store next week - I sewed some leaves around the edges- it matches the DP a little bit that way. I didn't have any small red flowers so I used some Ranger Ink and dyed it. I added some black stone squares around the edge of the heart and some buttons in the corners, along with ribbon down the card. It is also for the challenge at Sew Many Challenges this week.

This week at Paper Cutz Challenge, the theme is to make a project with a farm animal. I made my card using Duncan-He qualifies for a farm animal right? Also, be sure to stop by Split Coast Stampers and join in the sketch challenge this week- Okay, every week, but this week I am the guest hostess and have a great sketch to use.
And last but CERTAINLY not least, I used the sketch at Midnight Madness. And I LOVE that they are doing sneak peaks for the next week. I was planning on getting my card done early for them this week because I had the sketch, but then got the "call" from Split Coast Stampers asking if I would be the guest hostess for the week and had to rearrange- I loved this sketch and knew the perfect things to use on it.
The image I used was Duncan in the Tub- The flowers and gems are from HOTP and I don't know the paper- it was in my stash and I didn't note on it where it came from- the felt is from Reflections- I found this sticker in my stash too, and thought it was perfect: How cute is this face?

This week I am the sponsor and guest designer over at Stampin' Sisters in Christ too! It's a great start to a brand new year!!!! The card above is the one I made- I LOVE how it turned out, but the pic doesn't do it justice. Right after it got made, my mom called and asked if I could make her a baby card for one of her friends.
This shaker card was a lot of work, but a lot of fun. I think this may be a tutorial in the coming weeks. I added lots and lots of embellishments- I just couldn't stop myself :)
Oh, and did I forget to mention???? Sew Many Cards is having a sale for the entire hop- 20% off all of the new releases and if you need them all (more than 30 images) you can get them for $20!!! What a great deal- Click HERE for the SMC store
