This week over at the Global Design Project challenge, we are CASEing (CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit) a card by Maunela Geiswinkler. Her card is a lot "softer" in color but I think you will see how her card inspired me. I left the sentiment off for now because I am not sure if I want it for an anniversary card or a birthday card. It will eventually have the sentiment covering the birdies feet...kinda like on Maunela's card. Thanks for another fun challenge. It has been fun playing with this new Birds & Branches set from Stampin Up's new catalog. It has so much potential and I haven't even stamped with it yet!! Stay tuned I am thinking about using it again tomorrow!! Gonna see if I can do a full 7 days of showcasing this set. Two down and 5 to go!! #bethegift challenge:Call a friend today...just to say hi!!
Oooohhh....I just loved this sketch!! I'm gonna bookmark it and use it again!! Thanks to the Freshly Made Sketches time for the inspiration. I got to play around with my new a Birds & Branches set from Stampin Up's new catalog. Stay tuned tomorrow to see the other card I made with it.
I love the ocean!! The beach is my happy place!! So the inspiration photo from Hand Stamped Sentimentsis my kind of challenge!! I also am loving this new stamp set from Stampin Up...Whale Done. Perfect for this challenge. I got the idea for creating a spinning whale when I was brainstorming for the "fancy folds" challenge for the Paper Playerschallenge. I love how it turned out and think it will be a perfect card for one of my nephews!!
#bethegift challenge:Surprise a neighbor and mow their yard...give them a much appreciated break from the heat!!
Here is my take on three challenges....the "fancy folds" challenge from The Paper Players, a sketch challenge from the Sunday Stamps team, and "days gone by" challenge from the Time Out team. I am pretty sure a pinwheel qualifies for a "days gone by" theme!! Don't you remember running around with one being thrilled with the twirling?!?
Today I am playing along with the color challenge from Less Is More. Their color combo is yellow, fuchsia, and gray....what a summery combo!! I am also playing on the game board of the Tic Tac Toe Challenge. My 3 in a row for the win are embossing folder (background of clouds), stripes (Crushed Curry & Melon Mambo stripes), and bicycle (retired stamp from Stampin Up)...right down the middle row!
#bethegift challenge:Order a copy of a book you love and give it to someone you think would enjoy it too!
Here is my take on the sketch challenge from the CAS(E) this Sketch team. I am working at using up designer paper from my huge stash!! Honestly, I think I could make a million card with this stash!! Anyone else have this problem??
#bethegift challenge: Laugh today...a really real laugh, one that is too loud!! See if you can get someone else to laugh with you!
Woke up to a noisy rain storm and couldn't go back to sleep so I decided to make some cards!! Here are two that I made this morning before it was light outside.
Rainbow!! That is the word for this week's challenge from the Just Us Girls team. During this crazy time we find ourselves in...I'm thankful that God gave us rainbows!! I also created a card for the Inspired By challenge. I used both the sketch and the photo for my inspiration. This is the first card I have made with my new Monogram Messages from Stampin Up!! This is gonna be a fun set!! Looking forward to all the fun cards it will create!!
#bethegift challenge:Actually take time to complete the survey from the last store or restaurant...give them some positive feedback!!
