Garden Variety

The Etsy Inspired Challenge this week inspired me to use some more of my stash to make way for some new stuff!  I used all Garden Variety by Cosmo Cricket on these cards along with some twine from The Twinery.





Some new CTMH

I finally played with some of my new CTMH stuff!These papers are from the Wings set, can't wait to use more! oh and do you see that ribbon?  that is CTMH too!  The stamp is an older one, just felt good to ink it again, hehehe.  This is for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - anything goes.

Sending Warm Thoughts

Time for another Curtain Call challenge, isn't this a yummy photo.

I used this weeks sketch from Sketches in Thyme:


I went with the theme of the photo along with the colors for my card.  I used papers from Sweet Shoppe Designs called Java Jive and stamps from Gina K called Mugs and Kisses along with the sentiment from Warm and Wonderful.

A Class of Your Own

Time for another challenge at Wee Memories and this week we have a sketch!  I love sketches!



I was inspired by the color challenge at The Play Date Cafe:

I once again printed off some of the fabulous Webster's Pages Hollywood Vogue paper, I love this stuff!  The sentiment is from Unity.  This is also for the Moxie Fab Cameo challenge.

Friends with Flair

Time for another Friends with Flair and Get Sketchy!

This week's sketch from Get Sketchy:

 I was inspired by the pretty colors of the CR84FN challlenge this week:

I printed off some of my Webster's Pages digi papers and this is what I came up with.  The Unity stamp is this months KOTM.  This is also for the Kraft Journal challenge - anything goes; the Do You Stack Up - patterns; the Sketches in Thyme open challenge

I also dug out this She Said set again, I just love it!  I have paired it with some Little Yellow Bicycle paper and some American Crafts blooms.


Don't forget to start at the beginning of the Friends with Flair here.

Be sure to visit the Unity Store, they have the best stamps!.

Well I finally went in to the Doctor since I wasn't getting better on my own, seems as though I have a sinus infection.  Yuck, although the good news is that now that I have meds I should start feeling better soon, I hope.

Sew....

The City Crafter challenge this week is all about sewing so I went to work, here and there again as I am still sick and mostly sleeping.  This first card uses October Afternoon paper, a Squgglefly image by Nina B and the sentiment is by PTI - how fitting right now, ;)  This is also for the Fab'N'Funky challenge - digi.

This one uses my Gina K set along with some Pink Paislee ribbon, so quick.

Easter Egg Hunt

There is a new challenge over at 2 Peas and it is a sketch challenge:

This was the perfect sketch for these Easter photos.  I usually don't like scrapping Easter photos and not really sure why, I think I just don't usually like 'Easter' paper.  This time I used my October Afternoon Fly A Kite Kit and I LOVE how it turned out, probably my favorite Easter layout ever.  It is hard to tell in the picture but I did a tone on tone title and embossed it and it does look better IRL.  The twine on this is from The Twinery.  Yay, Jaimee's 2009 album is complete!

2 Peas

I was home sick again today and spent most of the day sleeping!  Hope to be back to work tomorrow.  Anyhow between sleeping and just vegging, this took me all day long to do but it is finally done.  I used this weeks Sketchy Thursday sketch:

I  used some more Sassafras goodies on this, love the chipboard flowers.  This is mostly from the Indie Girl kit with some from Apple Jack.  I got a bunch of mist in a goodie package for being published with CARDS magazine so I am putting them to good use.  To mist the kraft paper I used a crochet doily that I got at the thrift shop.  I also have used some October Afternoon letter stickers and E.A.D Designs stickers.  This is Danica with her out of town cousin, they have always gotten along really well and have so much fun together.

Now it is almost time for bed again.

Cupid Emily

Time for another SCRS Challenge:

I used this weeks Sketches in Thyme sketch:
And once again I used the Cupid Emily, she is just so cute.  The papers are Bo Bunny Crush.  This is also for the Stampin Royalty challenge - anything with wings.


Sadly this is my last post as a SCRS DT Member, I had to step down as I just have had too much on my plate recently and had to let some things go.  Sparkle is awesome to work for and I thank her for the opportunity she gave me!  This will not be my last creation with these adorable stamps though!

For all that you do

The Card Patterns sketch for this week:

I decided to pull out my Sassafras Mix and Mend paper again.  This is also for the Squigglefly challenge - edges (I used a border punch and distressed some edges); and the Paper Sundaes challenge - distressing; and The Kraft Journal challenge - anything goes.  The image is the Marigold image from Squigglefly and made by Michelle Bertuzzi.  I have layered the marigold with pop dots although it is hard to tell.

YOU

We are on our 4th sketch this week at Get Your Sketch On

This week we are sponsored by The Cutting Cafe!  Regina is always so generous and I love using her images.



I used the Fun With Valentine set to make a Journal card and paired it up with a lot of Jillibean Soup Yumminess. 
Hop on over to GYSO and play along I would love to see what you create!

Besties

I told you I love this sketch from Let's Capture These Sketches, this is my third post today (and I have gone on a 7.5K run with Jason!)
 

I used the fabulous Mix and Mend papers from Sassafras Lass, I LOVE these papers they are so pretty and this went together so quickly because all the layering is on the pattern paper, I just did a bit of fussy cutting, added a couple of stickers and chipboard flowers and done!  This is also for the 'B' challenge at Scrapbook Challenges.

Puppy Love

Please scroll down for my Curtain Call post, this is my second post for today.

I love this sketch from Let's Capture These Sketches so I had to play along!

Once again I dug into the fabulous Echo Park Be Mine kit to make a 'Puppy Love' page.  The misting is getting addicting, hehehe.  I used some Tattered Angels mist.  The letter stickers are from Making Memories.

Warms my heart
