Weekend Stamping!


Hello there!  I hope all of you in the states had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I have a great time with my parents, my brother and one of my second cousins.  It was a great day!  Today I am posting a couple of cards I've made over the last week or so that I haven't had a chance to post.  The first is a non-traditional Christmas card.  I was looking for an excuse to use my Surfer Ian GF stamp, so I thought a little taste of Hawaii would be a good choice.  I followed the sketch for Aly's Sunday Sketch.  I used my favorite brand of stamp to fit the "favorite things" challenge at Creative Card Crew. Creative Belli wanted to see chipboard.  Charisma Cardz, Stamp, Scrap and Doodle, Pollycraft, Everybody Art and Bizzy Bec's all wanted to see Christmas (Bizzy Bec's also wanted lots of sparkle which is in his hair...all glittered with a gel pen!)  Ildi Co wanted a Christmas song inspired card (Mele Kalikimaka). PaperCutz said "anything goes!" Allsorts wanted buttons.  And I believe that's it for that one!


The next card is a birthday card for my nephew, Kam.  His hero is my nephew, Blake, who is in the military.  So he loves anything military.  I went with Soldier Ian.  I tried to do browns and greens to make it as boyish as possible.  The sentiment is printed on the computer.  I used an old sketch I found as the inspiration.  It fits the buttons challenge at Allsorts, Creative Card Crew's favorite things (I love GF stamps!), La La Land wanted to see 3 papers, 2 cardstocks and 1 embellishment, Cute Card was something for boys, PaperCutz was anything we want, Saturday Spotlight was hats (helmet count??) and Anyone for Anya was "fake it" (faux stitching).

Thanks for stopping by today!  See you again soon!
