Shelby - thanks for hosting this week and starting off another year of fun and inspiration. I have a couple Bday cards to make so hope I can get in there and get to work on them. Things have been pretty hectic around here over the last couple of weeks as I am sure it has been for everyone. Miss Emma is back in town and I sure don't get much done when she is at the houseBigGrin which is almost everyday.

Shelby....great sketches to start the New Year off with. I've got several family projects to finish, but I hope I get to the sketches. I also want to do holiday cards....all kinds, but I really need to restock my birthday cards.

Raquel....So glad you got your new Expression. Hope your packing is going well. You'll be in the new house before you know it. Thank you so much for the card you sent. BigGrin

Sandy...thank you also for your card. I'm looking forward to trying out some of those free digi stamps.

Thank you all for your comments on my granddaughter. She's a sweetie.

Here's this week's colors....... you can play along or not...it's up to you. I loved the softness of these colors. They reminded me of candy mints!

Dee


Well....I'm having trouble getting the photo to post. I wish they would leave Photobucket alone!!!

ShelbyWoo,
Thank you so much for Hosting this week and kicking off the new year with some great sketches. There is sure to be alot of nice cards from everyone after the holiday break. Hoping to get started right away!

#1 - Like the torquoise color and the cute umbrella image.
#2 - Beautiful frame cut with the monogram, nice color como.
#3 - Like the assorted printed papers and shades of purples, very nice!
Second #1 - SO CUTE!! Love the pigtails on the cute girl image.
Nice work on the layout...you have been BUSY!!

Dee,
Thanks for the pretty pastel colors for this weeks' Ad Color Challenge. Perfect break from all the holiday reds and greens seen everywhere lately.


My New Year's resolution is to stay caught up with my comments so as not to get so far behind by the end of the week!!

Bingolady - Great first card of the year. Different colour choice for you, like it BigGrin .

Here is my card for sketch #1. I have had this butterfly paper for a while now and I remembered to buy plain paper to go with it. It is double sided and the tan with tiny flowers on is the other side. The card is an order for a work colleague to give her friend. The sentiment is a rub on. I used Story Book to cut the circle and its mat in green.The extra butterfly's are a stamp set I picked up before Christmas.

Sue.

This one is just for sharing.

The same friend at work needed a card for her Mum, so I made this for her. Background paper I have had a while and the image is off a sheet of Kaisercraft paper which I stamped the Birthday sentiment on to. I used Storybook again to cut out Mum. The BG paper I ran through the GC using tie the knot folder and dotted a few glue pearls around after I had inked the edges with worn lipstick. I used the same stamp for the butterfly's.

BingoLady, very rich dark colors! It would make a wonderful Anniversary card even! Quite nice!

Sue, love the soft gentle papers you used on both your cards! Love the added butterflies to give the first card the perfect touch! Love the embossing, and the extra pearls to give it the perfect touch on your second card!

Joanneorbash, Lots of glitter and bling on this one! Pretty!

Wow....lots of great cards to start off the new year! Here's my first card and it was one of the special family ones I had to finish. It uses the Ad Colors. I used Ladies Journal from Graphic 45. The hat pin, lace scrap and flowers were in my stash. The center of the flower is a button with the back clipped off. I used MFT and Spellbinder dies for the flourish and two MS punches.

I had so much trouble getting the photo to post. I was having a problem with the new Photobucket and it wasn't giving me a correct link to post. Sigh. After 4 or 5 tires it worked.

Loved all your cards.

Shelbywoo... thanks for hosting this week!!! Great sketches this week... Love all your samples. Love that 2nd 1st sketch (this one is my favorite).

Dee... Thanks for the wonderful soft ad colors this week... Just love your card with the ad colors, the lace and butterflies

Bingolady... Love your sketch one card

Sue... Great sketch 1.... like the way you used solid color behind your pattern paper... as you will see I did the same thing. Love that Mum card... like how you did the birthday sentiment, I would sure love to send one of those to my Mom.

Here is my sketch 1 card... The little lady is a digital stamp (New) from ThePaperShelter.com. Love this because they are already colored.... I did use photoshop to change the color of her hair. The Happy Birthday was computer generated and butterfly from Create a Critter 2. Spellbinder's die.
