Happy Anniversary

It's Mojo Monday #339 and the challenge is a tall and skinny card.  I used red again  (for some reason most of my cards lately have been in red.  I need to get a new color stuck in my brain!  :-))).  I used Paper Studio Blanc Boutique Pearl finish cardstock for the two strips.  I backed my sentiment with a red scalloped oval and then used the black heart paper to make a flower.

Cas-ual Fridays Challenge

My card today is for a challenge #CFC-130 at Casual Fridays.  The challenge is using ovals,
and since I love ovals, this was a good challenge for me.

For Mojo Monday's Challenge #338, I made this card.  I like the colors and the litte banners were made using the Stampin Up itty bitty banner punch. The candy dots are from Stampin Up also, and the paper is from the DCWV the French Country Stack.

Free 4 All Challenge

It's a free for all challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges and I made a tri shutter card to enter.  I have not done one before and wanted to give it a try and I am pleased at how it came out.  I have not put in the final sentiment yet, because this card can be a birthday card or an anniversary card and I have both events coming up in my family soon.  I enjoyed doing this card so much that I think I will do a couple more, although I didn't have all the correct measurements and had to wing it, I think it still came out well.

It's a Gold Challenge!

Todays card is my entry in Florishes Gold Challenge.  I needed a thank you card so I used a card from a card kit that I had.  I made the belly band from gold vellum.  I used some butterfly and flower stickers that I had to decorate the belly band, added my gold ribbon and a sentiment banner and it's done.

Mojo Monday #337 - Best Wishes

This is my card for the challenge at Mojo Monday.  I love the peach colors.  I used an electric die cut from Birds Cards for the flower edge. This would make a pretty card for a birthday or an anniversary,  and I have both events coming up in my family in the near future.

Crazy 4 Challenges

My card today is for Crazy 4 Challenges #227.   Since it's spring I throught the fence, flowers, and of course the Sun would work well with this sketch.  Hope everyone has a good week.

Grandson's Birthday Card

Here is the birthday card that I made for my Grandson.  I used the Sizzix die cut for the base card, and the spinner die which is from Stamps Of Life.  I wrote in messages for the spinner, and under the stand up part I added a little pocket for my gift card and my birthday message to him.  I'm sure he will like it, although like all kids, they like the gift more! :-)

A Birthday Card

My twin grandkids have a birthday coming up next week and this is for my Granddaughter.
I am entering it into two different card challenges, Tuesdayi Morning Sketches and Casual Fridays challenge #CFC129.  I used the TMS for the basic card design, and the requirement for Casual Fridays was the use of two shades of gray, so I cut 1" strips of the dark and light gray then made a basket weave square from the strips.  I cut out my shape from this square and framed it in red.  I added two stamped and cut out flowers,  the flourish and my banner.  I hope she likes it.   Now to make a card for her twin brother.

Mojo Monday Challenge #335
Crazy 4 Challenges

I love this sketch challenge at Mojo Monday #335.  It's a pretty sketch and I chose to use this stamp that I don't get to use very often.  I also like the color combo I used which was two shades of gray for the background, and used vellum to back the heart.  I fussy cut the flowers and added stickles for a little glitter. I am also entering this card in the Crazy 4 Challenges Color challenge which is using the color purple although my shade is a little different.
