Catch-Up Sunday

Happy Sunday Everyone! I cannot believe it, but the whole family slept in this morning! I cannot believe that even the kids slept in! The youngest one was the first one up and he came into our room and announced that it was day-time and he was hungry! I think the rainy and cold weather played a part in our sleepiness, but it was indeed lovely to have a long lie-in like that!

I have sooooo much to show you that I don’t know where to start! So this is going to be a long and picture heavy post! Let’s get started.

First, I’d like to share with you by card for this week’s Pink {Ink} Sketch Challenge. The sketch is by Erica  and we are being sponsored by Hobbyshop Nellie Snellen!

I have used this sweet Magnolia stamp that I have had for such a long time and hadn’t had the chance to ink up. I decided to color her with some traditional Christmas colors and create a Christmas card. I love that you can do this! The paper is Simple Stories 6x6  25 days of Christmas pad. I added some gorgeous iridescent taffeta ribbon from May arts to dress the card up a wee bit.

My second card today is for this week’s Sketch Saturday challenge and we are being sponsored by Tickled Pink Stamps! I have used another of the Pink Ribbon images for my card. These images will be available come 4th of October and there are matching sentiments as well. All are $1 each ONLY for all of October and are only going to be available for a limited time. All sales will go straight to supporting Pink Ribbon Day. This one is called Lil Pinkette Charity.

For my third card, I am showcasing another of the Pink Ribbon images. This one is called Lil Lilith. I adore her strong attitude and I paired her up with one of the matching sentiments; “Fight like a Girl”.  I went for a simple, no fuss card and I am happy with how the image is showcased this way!

Finally, I have a card that was a commission for a friend. She wanted a wedding card for her sister. I of course reached for this sweet LOTV image and I used the sketch from this week’s Papertake Challenge.

In this photo, you can see the matching envelobox that I created for the card and it has captured the shimmer on her dress!

Have a great rest of the day! I am off now to see my son play hockey!
