Try Stampin' on Tuesday challenge 341

Hello all it is so good to be back sharing with you.  I love this sketch, the long panel on the front lends itself to so many different possibilities! I find it a challenge :0) to have a lot of layers on a card like last weeks sketch. But then that is why they are given the name challenge, it is good to stretch ourselves.  I did make a card for last week, if you haven't seen it check it out and let me know what you think!

This is a new stamp set from the Holiday catalog - Stampin' Up. I fell in love with it when I first saw it and now that I've checked out all the samples on pinterest  I'm really sold. You will be seeing more of this set.  

    BOLD WORDS is the optional theme.

Try Stampin' challenge 340

OH MY GOODNESS!! I can not believe it has been so LONG since I've posted.  My life has been just crazy the last couple months. Working part time, helping with Mother-in-law care, garden and canning, helping with sister that has leukemia. Three of the four took me out of the house. I was beginning to wonder if I'd ever enter my craft room again.  The work side is done now, I'm still heading out for care giving (away from home and out of town) but I am a LITTLE bit free.
Enough of all that, you came to see a card, I decided to try out a new Stamp set from Stampin' Up I ordered, I saw somewhere that Christmas is less than a 100 days 😱 yikes maybe we all better get busy with that little/big undertaking. I usually pick a pattern or two I like and make multiple cards. I'm still looking and trying out stamp sets.

Optional Theme: Petite Patterns 

TSOT 591. Fun panel card

 Our technique this time is layering. I decided to not follow the sketch and just do some layering. I’m not sure this is what they really me...
