Mid-Week Inspirational Post @ FTHS

Hello friends!
Hope this finds you all well.
I am still getting over bronchitis. I went back in for another checkup yesterday and got some antibiotics this time. Hoping this will "kick" this thing already.
In those couple of few good moments everyday, I had time to put this together.
I hope you had a chance to grab this Friday Freebie back on May 13th.
Even if coffee isn't your thing...this set is worth it for all of the great sentiments! Perfect for Father's Day, Thank You cards, and Birthday greetings. Download includes image and ten bonus sentiments. 
I used this weeks current sketch - but not the twist.

Image: World's Best Coffee
Paper: Kraft card stock, ki Autumn Flowers
Coloring Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Webster's Pages - Enamel Dots

I did not add an sentiment to it yet, because I'm not sure who I want to give this to yet :)
Well, I hope you were inspired to go and create something wonderful w/one of Faith's wonderful images. Join our i {heart} sketch challenge or the Stamp of the Month challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Mid-Week Inspiration Post @ FTHS

Welcome back for another inspirational post @ FTHS!
I had really wanted to do the current sketch challenge, but have been not feeling well since about last Thursday. Luckily, when my girlfriends & I went on our recent scrapbooking retreat - I had made a couple of cards using some FTHS images.
I made up this cute Birthday card. I made it with bold & bright colors so it could really be for a boy or a girl.

I hope you find time to create something and join us :)

Challenge #276

Happy Wednesday crafty friends!
Time for another challenge at Penny's :)
This week is:
Challenge #276
Anything Goes
This past weekend I attended a baby shower. They had asked for books instead of cards.
Which is a great way to build a 'library' for your new child.
But me, I still like making baby cards. I created this one using an image from Oddball Art, to have on hand for when the next baby shower arrives.
Paper: White, brown and kraft card stock
Color Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: American Crafts Twin, buttons
As you can see I kept this card CAS. I wanted the image to 'be the star' so I didn't want to go over the top w/embellishments, DP, etc.
Make sure you stop and see what the rest of the gals have created.  And we are also looking for a couple new DT members as well. If you want to join this fun group of gals - please put DT after your entry in this weeks challenge ;)
And as always - thanks to our sponsors this week!

Prize - 3 Images from their store
Prize - $15 gift certificate
Thanks for stopping by today!!
