2 Sketches 4 You - Kazan's Sketch 38

This is my first sketch challenge for 2S4Y and I really enjoyed participating. In fact, it was the first one I've done this week, I just got my posts out of order....LOL  Anyway, I'm having a blast being back in my craft room and I've missed all of you so much and really missed getting to blog hop. Please leave me a comment and I'll pop on over to your blog to see what I've missed and what's new. 

It was so much fun using all my of new stuff.  This paper from Basic Gray Wassill collection is fantastic. Had a chance to stop in Archiver's when taking my baby to the vet in KC and was so glad to see they had it.  I've seen it on line, but not for purchase, so if anyone knows of an online store that's carrying the paper packs, please let me know.

Another new stamp from JustRite Christmas Treasure Set.  I'm loving these stamps!  The snowflakes were punched with MS Snowflake Punch out of the coordinating paper because I couldn't find anything else I had that I thought fit in that rectangle.  The poinsettias and leaves are from Prima and the red brads are from my stash. I can't find my notes to let you know what copics I used and I apologize for that but I do remember that I used Elmer's Glue All and Crystals on the top of the bird house.

Thanks for stopping by and if you do know where I can get the Basic Gray Wassill pack, please let me know. 

Hope your week has been a good one. I know mine has and I am so thankful to be back!!!

MoJo Monday Challenge Week 110

Hi Everyone and thank you so very much for hanging in there while I had to be gone for awhile.  I'm so glad to be back in my craft room doing what I love doing.  To begin with I couldn't find a thing I wanted and didn't even know where to  So the first challenge of the week for me was Monday MoJo. I love their sketches and wanted to start the week with Monday. 

The papers that I used were from: K&C Winter Wonderland Collection, Metallic Gold from Creative Memories, and Bazzill. Today while at Hobby Lobby I noticed several small items I thought would work great for charms (since I can never find charms in any of our retail chains here) and the angel is from A Tree for Me.  Finally got to use my new stamps from JustRite and I love them. They are so easy to use and stamp really clean.  I  used clear embossing ink and Ranger's Super Fine Gold Embossing Powder. Applied heat from the back side of the paper this time because I'm always afraid I'm going to scorch it and it worked great for me (No scorching).  Spellbinders Classic and Scalloped Large Circles were used.  I have no idea where those little stars came from, but I think they were left over from one of my Cricket projects last year.

Off to do a few more posts.  Have a wonderful weekend!
