Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop

I'm so glad to be able to participate in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop this month. I have had Tiny Treats Christmas stamp set and this is the first time I've used it. Love all the tiny images that are available.

I made this card for a friend of mine who likes to decorate after Christmas for the "winter."

Eveything I used to make this card is from Papertrey Ink.

What's Cookin for Mojo Monday

I am trying to post more here and take part in some sketch challenges this year. I like the sketches that are at Mojo Monday. Here is this week's sketch.

This was an easy sketch but I did not plan well! My circles are too big for the card. But I like it anyway. I really like this stamp set called What's Cookin' from Taylored Expressions. There are a set of dies to match and that thrills me. I just did not use them on this card.

Thanks for coming by and checking it out.

Stamps: What's Cookin' by Taylored Expressions
Patterned Paper: Nook and Pantry by Basic Grey
Card Stock: PTI stampers select white and chocolate brown
Other: Copic markers, spellbinders dies, silk ribbon from Stamped Simply store.

CPS 200 Happy Valentine's Day

I made a card today! I'm participating in the CPS sketch this week. That's Card Positioning Systems. I have a hard time coming up with ideas for cards, so I like to find sketches to help me.
This is the sketch for this week. It's sponsored by Flower Soft.

Here's a card I made for my husband. He doesn't look at my blogs, so it's safe to put here.

Cardstock: PTI shimmers pink, Stampers Select White; Flourishes red
Ribbon: PTI sweet blush swiss dot satin
Patterned paper: Be My Valentine (Affectionately Yours) We R Memory Keepers
Ink: Memento rhubarb stalk; Brillance coffee bean

Naughty or Nice?

It's been a long time since I've really posted a card on here. I've made a few but not posted them here. I have always admired Jen's cards at I{heart}2stamp and all the other stampers works that do the Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT). She has decided to do this challenged once a month instead of every week. I'm sure that's more manageable for a lot folks. Anyway, I hope to do this challenge every month.

This is the sketch for January.

I know that The Cat's Pajamas calls this kitty "Sprinkle," but I call her "Sophie" because she really reminds me of Girlville's kitty named Sophie, who supervises any and all things that go on at her house! I love all the Sprinkle and Poochie stamps from TCP! I had fun doing this challenge from Sketch For You To Try! I hope to do one every month this year.

Stamps: The Cat's Pajamas
Cardstock: Scarlett Jewel, kraft, Stampers Select white, all PTI
Patterned Paper: Holiday Cheer from PTI
Ink: Memento Black
Other: Copics; button, PTI; twine, PTI, snowflake die, PTI, Spellbinders dies, embossing powder for stamping image
