411 x 2, in Latenightstamper style for Three Clover's Thursday Challenge.

Wow, that was a mouthful! In short here are a few more multi-challenge cards. The first card is for three challenges. First the Latenightstamper's weekly challenge to use brads, second the 411 sketch challenge 131 and then finally the Three Clover's Thursday Challenge which was a celebration theme. What is the most common celebration we make cards for??? Birthday's of course. So here is mine--I don't send New Years cards so I didn't want to take that route.

Stamps: Pun Fun, Owl Together Now, Party Hearty, The More the Merrier
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Basic Black, Brilliant Blue
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red
Other: ribbon, hole punch, circle scissors plus, embossing folder, 1 inch circle punch, 1 3/4 inch circle punch, small and large oval punches, markers

This second card is using the same sketch as the top one (sketch is below both cards). I found these cool BINGO stamps the other day at the Stamp Store and had to buy them because my Mom LOVES Bingo and I know it would be perfect for making cards for her. All other supplies except stamps are Stampin Up!

Here is the 411 sketch ....

Got to run, see ya soon.

It's been done all day but our internet has been out.

My card is a bit different than the sketch because I was creating from memory. Our internet has been down most of the day so I could not get on to see the sketch. I posted it on the group and on my blog so I deleted it from my computer. Hmmm, might have to re-think that in the future. Anyway, my card for this sketch challenge is also one of my Design team designs for the Latenightstamper's weekly challenge. This wee we are to use brads. How easy is that!

I hope you chose to play along with the sketch challenge. Here is the original post where you can link up your card CLICK HERE TO PLAY ALONG AND ADD YOUR LINK.

Here is the sketch again too.

And my card. I used the beautiful new sentiment set called Well Scripted that will be available in the Occasions mini catalog starting January 5. The good new is you can get it wood mounted or unmounted with cling foam! This gives us the best of both worlds--the space saving of un-mounts with the fabulous results of our deep etched rubber at the same time. Love it.

Stamps: Well Scripted, Holiday Best
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red, Christmas Cocoa DP
Ink : Real Red, Basic Black
Other: label punch, New Pinking Hearts Border punch, Top Note Die,, Brads, Markers

Hope you are having a wonderful beginning to your week. Hope it just keeps getting better and better. It is snowing like crazy here but not too cold so that is ok!

Thanks for stopping by,
Mary Jo

Geez I have been busy.

Hmmm, I kept forgetting to post on here, how funny is that. Something I do nearly every day and I just keep forgetting this week. Nothing like being CRAZY busy. Anyway, I hope you had a super terrific Christmas! Mine has been great. We still have some family to celebrate with tomorrow so we are not done yet.

So I thought I would share the gifts my son and I made for his class. They were so fast and easy to do.

Now that Christmas is over I am ready to move on the Valentines and regular all occasions cards. I have not been in my studio since Wed. morning. YIKES, no wonder I don't feel "right"!

See ya tomorrow--I promise, lol!
