A Mother's Day Sketch Challenge with Cardztv!

Wow I cannot believe we are
already talking about Mother's Day!

Time is sure flying by, right?

Any who - here is my newest card
using the Cardztv Sketch #1.


I just love this sketch as it's truly one you can use over and over
again.  I used the Cardztv NEW stamp set called Mini Messages
for my sentiment.  I'm telling you - run to get this set!!!!

It's the perfect size for mini cards and those little skinny
labels on cards that are so popular right now!

I used my Cricut to print and then cut out image.
I'm not thrilled but I'm still learning.  I almost printed it
out again and used the Scan and Cut to see if there would
be any difference but I ran out of time.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Link your creation up on Cardztv for your chance
to win some free stamps from Mary!

Happy Spring!

How about an Easter Sketch Challenge!

Welcome to my blog!
Today I'm excited to share with you another
sketch challenge with the Cardztv Design Team!

Mary asked her designers to create an Easter card using
any sketch we wanted.  I chose sketch 3 - it's one of my favs!

SKETCH THREE


I love this sweet Easter card!  I used Lawn Fawn's perfectly plaid
6x6 paper pad for my paper.



I chose the Cardztv Set called Easter Punnies
for the Hippity Hoppity sentiment.

"EASTER PUNNIES"



This card will be sent to my grandchildren in
California to wish them a Happy Easter!

You have until April 6th, 2017 to add your
creation to the Cardztv challenge!

Thank you for stopping by today~

Cardztv Sketch Challenge #4

Mary has a new sketch and
I love it so much, this is the 2nd
time I've used it!


I love pink, black and lime green together!
Those colors just make me HAPPY, so I thought it was
fitting to use the sentiment "Get your happy on" from
the Cardztv Stamp Set Mixed Messages.

As you can see I used a scallop circle and die cut
for the bottom image.  I had just gotten in my
monthly ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon so 
I used that beautiful green.

I love this 8x8 paper pad from the Paper Studio
with it's all white/black pages.

Mary had an instructional video on her site last week
that showed you how to use your Cricut Design Space
to "flatten" images and print them out on a circle
or a rectangle or really any shape you want.
This was my first attempt and I can assure you
it won't be my last.  If you go back to the Cardztv Blog,
you can see the video where she creates this lovely
card with different papers but uses the same
Circuit cartridge.

Okay now it's time to get your
crafty side on!  Link up on Mary's
site for a chance to win a set of
Cardztv stamps.

You have until March 23, 2017
to add your creation!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks A Latte!

It's time for another challenge
with the Sketch Team from Cardztv Stamps.

Mary has introduced a couple of new sketches
and if you haven't viewed her videos on how to 
use them, make sure and take a look.


I couldn't wait to use her new one.

I am a coffee lover so it was fun
to break out the Brew Ha Ha Stamp
set for this fun little card.

This card would be the perfect one
to use when you are giving a Starbucks or
Panera Gift card!

Make sure and go to Mary's blog to
gather more inspiration and then link
up your card.  You could be the winner
of a stamp set by Cardztv!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stamping  ----  Cathy

I freakin' love sketches!!!

I know I get a little carried away
but I truly love sketches!
I used Cardztv Sketch 7 for this
Valentines card.


Instead of the two squares on the front
I used two hearts cut out with my 
My Creative Time's dies.

I love how it turned out!

Join us for this challenge.  Beginning on 
February 10, link up your Valentine Card using
any of Cardztv sketches.  You have until
February 23 to link up your creation.

Good Luck!!

Cathy
