Designed2Delight Monthly Blog hop

Welcome to the Designed2Delight monthly blog hop for October. Faith has released several new winter images and two adorable football kids this month, really great new images. They all are so gorgeous, it was hard to chose which to use. 

My first card using Missing Cookie. This one is so funny. Love the little faces peeking over the table, priceless. Would make a fantastic Christmas card, but I went more general today to show how versatile it is. The image is colored in copics and matted with nesties. Patterned paper is from Colorbok, and I've embossed the light blue with a baking embossing folder. Papertrey ink ribbon and Kaiser pearls finish it off. I stitched the edges for a homey feel. 



My sketch comes from Freshly Made Sketches #57. I made mine a square instead of a rectangle, just stretched it out a bit.

My second card uses Little Quarterback Boy, he is so cute showing off his muscles. He's colored with copics and mounted on PTI cardstock, football paper from AC Moore, Twinery twine, and a Jesse James button finish it off.


The sketch for him comes from Tuesday Morning Sketches #168. I flipped it to a vertical layout.



Thanks so much for joining the hop. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thanks so much for blog hoppin' with D2D! We hope you will join our FREE Stamp of the Month Challenge. Remember, all New Release Digital Stamps will be on SALE until Oct 23. Details HERE.

Gotta love that football card- and how fun is the missing cookie card. What a great image! Makes me laugh- my Mom would make cookies, and the 7 of us kids would scarf them up as fast as they came out of the oven.....What a fun memory!
