It's time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash ~~ Challenge 453 is Summer Lovin' so summer realted projects please. Not sure sure about the summer lovin' I'm not lovin' it at all its too hot and humid of course there is no A/C at the cottage, and I'm sticking to the keyboard on the laptop as well as it is on my lap instead of on the laptop table. Taking pictures today was fun as well, a bit of a breeze so had to be quick to capture a shot before it was face down on the breakwall.

August Rudolph Days.............sadly it was cancelled.
I'm crafting along at the cottage and trying to get a few challenges finished before they ended, managed to get the ABC Christmas done, now on to the Rudolph Days. Last Tuesday I saw a sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches and thought wow I can use the last piecs of that 12 X 12 patterned paper, I don't usually make "dark" cards but it just seemed right to use Green as a back drop. I'm sure the other cards I made with this patterned paper I used Red.
I Tried a new Sketch.
A few weeks ago we had a sketch challenge at Shopping Our Stash, well there were 4 sketches and I picked one that fit my image and the time I had (sometimes I run late) Well this sketch is one I really wanted to try, I love layers and this one was perfect and it fit my image too. I have had my image coloured for a few days in hopes that I would get a chance to enter it in the ABC Christmas Challenge blog. The letters are P, Q and R. I chose to do P is for Plump, I haven't played along for a while but when I saw the super cute plump bird from Stampendous (mini stamp) I knew I wanted to play.

By the Sea
Hello , thanks for stopping by to see what I have been crafting while at the lake, it seems appropriate to have a water realted csrd for the Seize The Birthday challenge #221 By the Sea is the topping. I was inspired by the surprise party guest Jenny, so in packing for the lake I added my lighthouse die and a scrap of ancient Stampin' up patterned paper, I'm sure it is the final piece.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Belles Jingle all the Way!!
Yes I know I spelled the Jingle Belles wrong the second time, that is because this card is for their "Cardstock Christmas" gasp no patterned paper oh my what would be next. I am usually dashing in on almost the cut-off date but this time I had a jumpstart as a few challenges ago at the Jingle Belles it was inspired by a movie or song and I stamped and coloured this image but ran out of time to finish it, so tucked it away in the "parts" box just waiting for a time to "break it out"

Winter Wonderland ~~ Kitties and puppies
Welcome to my second post for Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge, it's anything goes + the option of Wonderland. I could not resist making a slimline wonderland scene giving reasonalbly even billing to both well maybe I'm a bit biased and leaning to the kitty side.

Let's Get Sketchy!!!
Challenge #451 at Shopping Our Stash is ~~ Lets Get Sketchy ~~ pick a sketch from Craft With Sarah. Don't forget to post which sketch you used, My choice was #003 mainly because it worked perfectly with the image I already had coloured in my stash. All the sketches come with measurements which makes it much easier, although I cut the 1/4 X 6 inch strip wrong twice. You know the old saying "measure twice cut once" Here is my card,
