Color Monday, Sketch Tuesday and an Earthquake!

Well, it's been a few days since I've been able to really get creative due to other pressing matters, like work, my son's birthday, church, an EARTHQUAKE. That's right, it's my neck of the woods that encountered the 6.5 shaker that was on the news this past Saturday. I'm thankful that there were no serious injuries, there was quite a bit of structural damage in Eureka. I saw lots of broken windows as I was leaving town. Yup, that's right I had the good(?) fortune to be in Costco. Would not like to repeat that! It was a little freaky and very loud, HOWEVER, I know who I belong to and I tell you I experienced peace in the midst of the shaking so I want to say, thank you, Jesus!! If you'd like to see some pictures of our local scrapbook store and the mess we encountered you can go to http://www.scrappersedge.net/ we certainly feel blessed that there was no damage to the store and so what, if we gotta pick up merchandise and paper scattered all over!! No one was hurt only inconvenienced!
On to better and fun updates! Here is this weeks color and sketch challenge from Christian Paper Crafts. I'm not sure why the sketch turned out so tiny (I'll have to talk to Gloria about that!) but I did combine the two challenges! Color Challenge: light blue, any shade of brown & white. Use these colors in anyway that you are inspired! When uploading to our gallery at CPC please use keyword CM39 and when uploading to your blog or other online galleries, please use keyword CPC-CM39 and the sketch is CPC-ST39.


Here is the finished inside of the card.

I'm making cards for my mom for Christmas (I already gave her some and I altered a tin to keep them in!) and she wanted some sympathy cards so I'm in the process of making those for her.

Here are the ingredients to this very simple card, this was definitely a fast and easy one!

Paper: Kaiser Scrapbook (doublesided); Bazzill cardstock

Stamps: My Sentiments Exactly (MSE)

Ink: Ranger Archival Ink, coffee

Embellishments: Creative Charms, pearls; Bazzill ribbon

Tools: Cricut, Celebrations cartridge ( I used the number five which was "blacked-out" so that I could create a larger scallop to match the sketch. The sentiment block I didn't "scallop" but since there are no challenge police out there I did my own thing!! I also used an EK Success corner rounder.

Thanks for looking and I hope you'll play along and post in the gallery at Christian Paper Crafts we'd love to see your projects!

See you hopefully tomorrow I plan to post another sketch and this time I should have a scrapbook page to go along with it!! God bless and thanks for looking!!

  1. Wow, crazy earthquakes. I don't miss those at all. DH and I lived in Northridge (the epicenter of the '94 earthquake) for 2.5 years. Glad to hear you're okay. God is good!
