Sorry for the horrible picture of my page. I can never seem to get them straight, however they really are straight. LOL
The BG paper is from Fancy Pants Designs - Mulberry Road & Autum Leaves from Creativity, Inc. Journaling box is from Imaginations. Ink used to ink edges is color box - warm red. Flower centers and dots on title are from mark richardsusa - clear hot pink dots. Flowers are Michaels Bridal Table Confetti. I am not sure who the stamp home is by. I made the mistake of taking all my stamps out of their package to store them in a storage binder, minus that information..
BG paper is from 3 bugs n in a rug. Flowers have been cut from another sheet of same paper and a swarovski crystal added in the center. Some of them are topez and some are olivine. Journaling tag is tucked partially under the photo and the ribbons are from my stash. The "love" stamp is from Heidi Swapp, ink is colorbox, chestnut roan. Corner beige cardstock is from cardstock ware house and has been inked with the same ink, using the direct to paper method

However this great sketch is from Cutie Sunday Challenge. I really love the sketch and I was also able to use it with the challenge from the
Sarah Kay Weekly Challenges , using a Sarah Kay image and a charm. The charm is hard to read but it says "best friends"
This week's Challenge from
Arty Girlz Challenge Blog was no purchased designer paper. Oh no! What to do? There are such lovely papers out there right now and I can't use them? So, I drug out my Memory Mists and Alcohol Inks and got busy. This is what I came up with. No sure that I like the outcome, but....it has been a long time since I did my own backgrounds. Thanks for the challenge.

Tomorrow I have Miss V and when she is here I get very little done. We spend most of the day playing. I can tell you there is nothing better than being a grandmother. LOL. She is the light of my life.
Every year for Christmas I seem to make at least one Christams card that is .... well....different. I suppose this one could definitely classify as different. I have used a sketch similar to http://iheart2stamp.com so I am hoping this classifies for their challenge. I have certainly been in a different mode today. Maybe tomorrow I will return to normal whatever that might be.
I used this stamp a couple years ago and smeared the name on the end of the stamp, so I don't have a clue who made it. It is stamped with black india ink, paper is from my scrapbox. Ribbon from my stash box. Flowers are Michaels Bridal Table Confetti, white. Centers are red pearls from Mark Roberts. Circle is cut from cuttlebug.
The Tilda stamp is colored with Derwent inktense color pencils and the trim is Stickles - stardust.
Fence is also a Magnolia stamp, colored with prisma color pencils. Tree Stamp is Hero Arts. (ink used for trees Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy). Miscellaneous paper and snow flake embellishments

Later today I plan to add a few of my scrapbooking pages. Since I have named this Blog "Sallys Creative Corner, I thought I should add a few of the things I love doing and scrapbooking is definitely one of them. I was scrapbooking before it became popular. I started many years ago while researching my family history. I loved taking pictures, listening to stories from our family members, jotting them down and later journaling them. Sometimes after after seeing their stories in print my family wasn't real happy because of "family skeletons". I have always thought it was hilarious. It takes all those things to make us the family we are! Enough ramblings

It is truly difficult for me to make a card or scrapbook without some type of pink. LOL Maybe it is because I scrapbook so much for my granddaughter and she is a girly girl who lovvvvveeeeesss Pink, thus leaving tons of pink scraps for me to use on my cards. Can you believe at the moment this is the only PB stamp that I own, that is soon to change. I have been on the internet searching out the ones that I want to buy. Whoa, what a wish list! This stamp is one of her brush stroke stamps Winter Scroll.
I stamped the image using top boss clear ink, detail gold embossing powder, red jewels from my stash, dark green cardstock for backing paper, printed backing paper is Daisy Bucket Designs - Astor Park Collection - Quincy Street, cut to match the corners and the center strip is cut at angles with tapering it in the middle and gold metallic ribbon from my stash. Sentiment stamp is embossed with detail gold. and is from A Stamp In The Hand Holiday Pack #1.
