For this challenge, I used the sketch, then realized it has a twist - a movie or book theme. I have in mind "Thanks for the Memories" - this is a thank you for a visit :"home". But I suspect that old Bob Hope song is just that - a song. Could it have been in one of his movies? (I realize many of you are too old to know what I am talking about...LOL!). http://sweetstopsketches.blogspot.com/

I have had little time for card making this week, but DGD is having a birthday soon. One reason I selected this stamp is to make her card - she is a sophomore and expects to play HS varsity later this year. Green and gold are the school colors, but I am not sure about the uniform!
The stamp is Your Next Stamp, with a Studio G sentiment. The basketball dp is by Paper House, and the words are on dp by Karen Foster. Coloring with Prismas and Spica pens.
I remembered just in time! I added a "

gift from a friend at WishRAK, and is perfect for our grandson - he
loves to hunt and fish, and this looks like his dog! I used the Sizzix
fall leaf EF - a reminder of the aspens in CO. The sentiment is
computer generated, and I bought a bag of plastic bone/buttons at a yard

It may look like I am taking a break from card making on some of these days, but I have done several of the Hope You Can Cling To challenges at SCS, and I have decided not to double post my cards. This challenge goes on all month, so there is still time to play along. There are oodles of prizes - offered to participants who also send cards to the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

Sketch (with ribbon): http://christmaschallenges.blogspot.com/
NOTE: I failed to re-read the instructions for the Christmas Challenge - I needed a bow. So I re-made the card to include the bow as well as the green ribbon.

I colored this flower at least a year ago - I often color images while sitting at our RV park craft shows. It gives me something to do, and I have found another bonus - I can show people that I actually create my cards - they are not from a purchased computer card program. Can you tell that is a pet peeve?
In addition, I have had this ribbon for a while - as well as the cs and dp.
The embossing folders are Cuttlebug. The flower is Hampton Arts. I used Coredination for the embossing - but I did mess up and embossed the wrong side, so the color does not show through this way. I clipped the image corners with scallop edging scissors.

|The YNSC18 challenge
is to use brown, yellow and orange. I used this sunflower (from a
WishRAK member) colored with Prismas, and some DCWV fall DP. The
embossing folder is a new one for me - Sizzix Fall. The sentiment is
Fancy Pants. and the punch a Martha Stewart border punch.|

Whew! I just finished an hour and a half phone session to get me e-mail and blog access corrected. We subscribe to an on line service - it is scary and pricey, but seems to be worth it. I am not sure just what caused the problem, but all is fine now.
This week's Card a Day (on Splitcoaststampers) challenge, issued by Nat, is to do a Christmas card in non-traditional colors.
This is about as non traditional as I get for Christmas cards - the papers all come from a Paper Studio pad called Faith. The stamp is unmounted and I have forgotten where I got it. Actually, I omitted a bit of the image - too big for this layout. I think it works without the buildings of Bethlehem on the left. The sentiment is Studio G. I added gold ribbon and half pearls.
The second card uses many of the same elements, with some red and green added.
