PPA Challenge #17

This week's challenge at Paper Pal Arts is a sketch challenge. I was shocked when I saw it because it reminds me of a couple of cards I made a couple of weeks ago! LOL! And I loved them so I was excited to make another one!

I'm sick of Christmas already, so I decided to go with Valentine's Day. The hearts are from Loads of Love(110522) (which incidently was my very first SU stamp set ever!) and the sentiment is from teeny Tiny Wishes (115370). I just love the hearts in the middle. They are from the three heart punch called Heart to Heart (113694.) And the ribbon...of the ribbon.. I'm in love with this fat ribbon. I can't seem to use anything else! Its called Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in basic black (115615.)

If your interested in any of the supplies I used, you can order them from my Stampin' Up sight.
And just for kicks, here are the other cards I made that could have been made from this sketch! Too funny!

A few things...

I haven't posted in a while! Yikes! I've been busy prepping for several workshops and hid a bit of scrappers block. Everything I've made, I didnt like! But, I think I'm back now...

All of these were lifted from various places...

Sweet Treat Cups, Voila and Cold and Cuddly Stamp set.

This is straight from Chic N' Scratch. Love her blog! I just orderd a sizzlet to make one like this but with a cute reindeer. This will be one of my Hostess Club projects this month.

This is one I came up on the fly.. I was in Michaels and found these koozies in their dollar spot. We do a "Secret Santa" at school and I thought this would be a great little gift (with a cold soda inside!) Also a Hostess Club Project.

This is from Chic' n Scratch as well. Its a gift card holder. I just ordered a roller to use rather than the star stamp. Hostess Club maybe....

I'll be gone for a while...off to Memphis for Thanksgiving! Have a great one!

An ornament is only an ornament unless it is a...

We do this lesson in Kindergarten all the time! Turning a shape into something completly different! I love it! So, I took the challenge of turning an ornament shape into other things. I want my stampers to feel like when they buy the ornament punch, they won't discard it come January. I wanted to get the most for my money! I know everybody feels the same these days!So, I cased some cards off the internet and came up with a few things myslf. Besides it's obvious use, here are a few other ideas!


A Bra!!

Two fish (they need some heart bubbles and fins!)

A pumpkin...

So cute, huh? Now if you feel the need to buy this versitile punch, click here. My favorite is the bra...just think of the posibilities!! Please share ideas you may have!! I want to collect as many as I can!
I'll be back later today to post details on my upcoming Stamp Camp! Oh, and can I ust say that I am bloggin with a sleeping baby in my lap and dinner on the stove! Yes I am queen of multi tasking!!!
