A Mata-fied Heart Framelit & Freshly Made Sketch


[pinit]I was invited to a luncheon for a friend who received a promotion at work.  It was only fitting to use the Freshly Made Sketch challenge as a layout.  As a hobby Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, my free time is very limited and it is easier for me to use a sketch challenge to make a card than come up with my own design, which can take an hour or more.  I highly recommend using sketch challenges to develop one’s paper-craft skills (like me) when time is limited.  The envelope was icing on the cake and it was a big hit.  The recipient held on to it and treated it like an extension to the card.  I found it funny because who keeps envelopes?  Do you?

Since we are just around the corner to Valentine’s Day and the Heart Collection framelits are so darn cute, I have been using many hearts lately.  I wanted to add a special touch to the message on the inside of the card and a heart just seemed to complete it.

I love {Freshly Made}, they provide challenges that even a novice stamper can handle.  It gets my imagination going and the sketches are ALWAYS realistic.  Thank you so much for helping me find my nitch.

Scallop Birthday for Mom


My mom is the best mom in the whole world.  As a little girl, she showed me discipline, honor, and best of all LOVE.  She is the queen of my family and God sent me to the best mom in the whole world.  She inspires me to be the best that I can be at whatever I put my heart into.  As her only daughter, I am forever indebted to her humble teachings that now benefit me as a mom myself.  I raise my child as she raised me and so far so good… =)
