Scraps of thoughts, photos and art


As baseball season approaches, I thought it would be fitting to make a couple cards using some stamps from The Cats Pajamas. I just love the bunny from this super cute baseball set. These cards happen to fit the “Anything Goes” TCPTUES283 challenge too! I used My Mind’s Eye patterned paper for the background.

Splitcoaststampers had a VSN mini “Frozen” theme before Thanksgiving. It was only a 2 card challenge, so I was able to sneak that in pretty easily. I taught one of the cards for Margaret at Sparkle n’Sprinkle during a couple of the last Scrapbook Expo shows so it was a straight forward card. The other one was using Stampin’ Up! stamps that I’ve had in my stash but never used. That set is gorgeous!!

Not only did the Copic class finish up but the Hope You Can Cling To card drive on Splitcoaststampers hit in October. I support this event every year and throughout the year by sending cards to the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston Texas. It’s a fabulous opportunity to make cards and send extras to the Center.

I was able to finish all the challenges this year! What that means is meet the 31 daily challenges plus an extra 2 at the beginning and end. I made an individual card for each one! What an accomplishment for me 🙂

So here’s my splash of cards for the challenges which I’ll group into the stamp companies that I used (or images from the Copic class samples).
