Sketch Blog Hop – September

Welcome to the Sketch Blog Hop. Everyone has had so much fun doing these it’s turned into a regular event!

The purpose of this hop is to show how all of these talented bloggers
can take the same sketch and come up with totally different cards. If
you’ve never used a card sketch before, give it a try! You’re at the first stop.  Be sure to check out all of the fabulous cards at the different stops!

 Here’s the sketch:


I designed this for a card I made for a co worker (who’s also a crafter) and I realized I never shared it!  I used my Silhouette Cameo to make the sketch and also to cut the card…
I will post the original card next week… 
Here’s the card I made for the challenge.  I LOVE Bo Bunny paper & I love asian themed papers.. so these colors and papers just make me smile…
I made it an easel card since I didn’t want to cut a front & back.  Stickers are Elizabeth Craft, paper is all Bo Bunny.  Ribbon & Pearls are stampin up….
Hope you like the card…

Halloween Spooktacular Banner Hop for Special Needs Children!

Welcome to the annual Halloween Spooktacular Banner Hop for Special Needs Children!

I am delighted to participate in this annual hop, sponsored by CardMonkey and with more than 3 dozen other women who have
each made at least one Halloween-themed banner that will be donated to
hang in the room of a medically-fragile child at Pediatric Specialty Care in Pennsylvania.  If you just happened upon this hop, please go back to CardMonkey’s site – Ellen ♥ CardMonkey – http://cardmonkey-business.blogspot.com/

These children and their families — and PSC’s staff — will be
thrilled to receive the Halloween banners, to help brighten the season
when their friends and siblings will be out trick-or-treating.”

Here is the banner I made that I am sending to a child at PSC:

Here’s the panoramic shot:
Here are individual photos:
Here’s a video of the pieces that are Action Wobbles:

This Hop is two days (Saturday, September 1 and Sunday, September 2) and I am on day 2 – if you didn’t get a chance to hop on Saturday, be sure to go check out the other participants…,
and on each day you will see different banners. Be sure to visit on
both days to see the truly inspirational work of these generous
bloggers, and leave some love (comments) on as many sites as you can –
because if you do, you can increase your chances to win some Spooktacular blog
