Sketch Challenge

I will admit that I completely procrastinated on this challenge.  I knew what I had to do and why I waited so close to the dead line is crazy because when I went to submit the card - the post had already been locked.  Daddy, always said, "When you snooze, you lose."!  Oh, well I put it together in record time and it shows - I am sure.

The scan shows a smudge around the 2nd snowflake - don't know why but, there is no smudge.

Thanks for looking!

From a friend...

I received this sweet card in the mail from a good friend.  The card is great but, the sentiment is the best - it just makes you feel good when someone says something so sweet.  Thanks Kay for the perfect gift in the mail.  Love ya lots!!

Happy Thanksgiving

Today, I hope that you sit back and take time to reflect on all those things we have to be Thankful for.  Not just the big obvious things but, all those little ones that we sometimes forget to acknowledge.  May this post find you surrounded by your family and friends both old and new.  My wish for each of you is to have a THANKFUL - Thanksgiving.  Be Thankful for the new dishes that don't taste as good as your moms because you have something on your table - things can always be worse.  Please take the time to Pray for all of those that are less fortunate as you are and pray that somewhere out there someone is helping feed the bellies of the hungry.  May you not over eat and may you have a peaceful day with your family.  May God bless each and every one and most of all........................
from our house to yours!!

Thanksgiving Cards

I am So Grateful that I finished my Thanksgiving cards just in the nick of time to get them in the mail to be delivered by Wednesday.  I hope you enjoy my cards and I included the back of the cards so, you can see how I decided to use my JanaMark.  Hope you enjoy.  I start my Christmas cards tomorrow or that is the plan so, I will be back tomorrow with something - I just won't promise that it will be a Christmas Card.  Thanks for looking.

Same concept as my Thank You card from the day before!

Just a little special postmark for my JanaMark that I included on the back of each card.  To the left it shows November but, for some reason it didn't show up on the scan.

Another Thanksgiving that had to be different due to the design of the Thank You card was all going to the same person!
I welcome your comments!

Okay so, I got this wonderful inspiration from Aarons Booth and I needed to make a Thank You card for some friends that have went over and beyond the call of duty.  Meaning they have been awesome since, I broke my foot.  I'm stopping by the hardware store tomorrow to pick up a nice fall plant for their porch and give them this much over due Thank You card.  Images are from CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  Check out the Cricut AP cartridge here!!  I promise you won't be disappointed.  Come back on Tuesday to see my Thanksgiving cards - gotta get them out on the wire by the afternoon!! : )
Happy Escapades!!
Hope you enjoy!!

Holiday Wishes

CTMH has an awesome special for November that includes a stamp set called Holiday Wishes.  I am "so lovin'" this stamp set.  Below are a few examples of cards made with Holiday Wishes.  I would love to take credit for the design of the two but, they are not my originals.  For the ornament card I will have to add credit later and for the tree card that design is all CTMH with a couple tweeks of my own.  Hope you enjoy as much as I and my lovely group of gals did!!  Have a great Sunday.

Please excuse the not so perfect scans as I am just getting use to a All In One Printer.  I hope it turns out to be everything my hubby hopes it is.
