On the Pond


4 challenges inspired today's card...

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge // #AHSC584 ...A sketch challenge!!  I did a mini of this sketch since I didn't have that background shape in anything but this punch.  I think it turned out cute and today's card was definitely inspired by this sketch.

FarmQuest Challenges // #FQCB55 ...A farm and country challenge with a theme.  The theme for this current challenge is "things found in a pond or creek".  Frogs, cat-tails, and flowers are all found by the pond!

Cupcake Inspirations // #CI597 ...An "anything goes challenge"!  I was sweet childhood memories of playing in the creek and by the pond!!  Makes me sad that kids today don't make these memories!!

Allsorts Challenge // #AC787 ...A theme challenge!!  The theme for this challenge is "Way to Grow".  The frog, the flowers and the cat tails are all growing and changing!!  I used two retired stamp set bundles from Stampin Up for today's card...A Friend Like You & By the Dock.

This card was chosen as "top 5" over at the Allsorts Challenge!!  Thanks to the design team for the shout out on my card.

  5. Love your take on the sketch!! Sometimes you just have to adjust to your supplies! And what a great card you came up with!! Thanks for sharing at AHS!!

  6. DJ: Thanks for showing this pond scene (also works for creeks) with the frog, cattails and flowers!! Great use of the die-cuts! My maternal grandparents moved to their retirement home in their early 50s when I was about 4.5 years old and "Snag Creek" was the south boundary for their property! I loved exploring along there as a little girl! I'm glad you have similar memories! From FarmQuest, Becca

  7. LOVE that pond scene. I also like that you altered that sketch to use what you have. Thank you for playing with us this week at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.
