MFT Sketch Challenge #284

Unfortunately I missed another week for last week's sketch challenge, but I'm back today for this week's! I used the Fall Florals that I had been wanting ever since Laurie W. used it with the glad press n' seal, but it was always sold out! Luckily I got to pick it up while I was at the store on our trip to FL. And I used the press n' seal technique! I also used PTI's Clearly Creative Cardstock to emboss the sentiment so that I would be able to have part of it over the flowers. I think it turned out pretty for my first time playing with this flower set, but I know I could use some practice!

I have been wanting this MFT Hawaiian set for awhile, and low and behold, it was in this month's kit! I was very excited to get to play around with it, love the sayings, the pineapple...the iguana! Oh so cute :) I also loved all the fun colors this month, thanks for the awesome kit, Sharron! After you see the cards I created, make sure to stop by the 12 kits blog to see what my friends created as well. Enjoy!

MFT Sketch Challenge #282

I have definitely missed out on a few weeks of sketch challenges! Time to get back into the saddle after vacation. Especially after coming home with new goodies that I bought from the MFT store (you heard that right, there is a MFT store in my former hometown of Eustis, FL!) during vacation and also a package with the last release goodies I bought! I have many new stamps to play with :) Here is one of the new sets I got at the store to go along with this week's sketch:

12 Kits of Occasions April 2016

A coffee themed kit? Thanks, Tracey! I love coffee, and the colors you chose were so rich! I also loved all the different sayings and images to choose from, especially those doughnuts and that adorable bear!! I'm embarrassed that I was only able to make 3 this month, but I've been working on some invitations to a baby shower (just finished and mailed out today!). I'll share those soon. I still have a good bit of supplies left from the kit, so I can case!

MFT Sketch Challenge #276

I have seen several cards pairing the MFT gnomes and succulents, and I just had to have both sets! We recently got a gnome for the front yard and my 2 year old loves it, he says "hi gnome" every morning and goes over and pats his hat. So I went to show him this card and he says "WOW!" and then I pointed at the gnome and said "Sonny who is this?" thinking he would say gnome for sure, but he said..."Papa" LOL! Of course I had to text Nana right away and she thought it was hilarious too. Anyway, here is my take on this week's sketch, and the first Mother's Day card I've made this year:

My Favorite Things Sketch #275

Back for this week's round of sketch challenge with My Favorite Things! I just got this camper set, so I had to make a card for my husband. We will be taking our camper on vacation soon, so I thought this would be fun to give to him. Those are our initials in the wood heart.

MFT Sketch Challenge #274

I was so sad to miss last week's challenge, but it was for good reason, we were celebrating Easter with family in Maine, and it was the first trial run in our new camper. We will be taking it for a long trip to FL soon, so we needed a closer trial run. I had a really busy weekend again this weekend, but didn't want to miss another week, so I used a sheep that I still had left from last time's card, and created a cute thank you note for the family members that we visited for Easter. They'll love the funny sentiment.
