Challenge #128 -- Card Sketch

This week, I am in Frankfurt, Germany with my family on vacation. We are meeting up with friends and hoping to have a great time. I love that it is finally summer break here and we can get be together without school or work and make some memories. I have my camera and should be able to capture many great pictures.

We have a Card Sketch this week. You just have to see how fabulous the creations are that the Design Team Made. Make sure you check them out below.

This week, our Guest Designer is Collette. You can get to know Collette and see her amazing card below.

Hope you all have a great week!












Guest Designer: Collette

Hi! I'm Collette and I'm a student as well as a mom who does not work outside the home (I have an aversion to the SAHM cliche'). I have one beautiful 15 year old daughter, 1 canine fur baby and 2 feline fur babies as well as my wonderfully supportive husband who I've been married to for ... dare I say it, 31 years. He's been my rock through thick and thin!

I've been stamping and scrapbooking for about 10 years, going back and forth between the two. I began my stamping fetish through my Stampin' Up demo. My scrapbooking came about when I began selling Creative Memories. While I still use many of their products, as a demo for CM, I was too limited in what we could use, so I stopped being a demo. There are way too many companies out there with all kinds of different products that I don't feel I can limit myself to just one. Additionally, I enjoy nearly all crafts, including but not limited to Jewelry Making, Ceramics, Quilting, Crocheting and Knitting (in the warm months), and am teaching myself how to watercolor. I can't sit and watch TV without having something in my lap. Another passion of mine is reading and watching what my daughter laughingly refers to as my "Period Movies" ... meaning Jane Austen types - the A&E version of Pride and Prejudice being my all time favorite.

From August through December, I'm also a cheerleading coach. I started with my daughter years ago but when she went on to High School, I missed it so much; I had to continue with the younger girls. I'm currently going to school - hoping to enter the Nursing Program in January. All incidental classes have been taken except for the actual nursing courses, so I'm all set.

I love all things "art", so creating cards and scrapbook pages is currently my outlet for my passion. I hope to be doing it for many years to come.

While I don't update it as often as I should, here's my Heaven Sent for You blog site: http://collette-heavensent.blogspot.com/ .

Wow, what a GREAT site!
I recently took a class with Theresa Greenwood (know her?) about card making and paper arts. Every one made beautiful cards! She recommended this site for ideas, advice, and challenges. I would send in pictures of my cards but I'm still fumbling over my new digital camera. I hope to show you my creations some day.
Bravo and keep up the good work! You make beautiful cards!
