Poppy Sketch #11

I have recently found another card challenge site called Poppy Sketches.  I think I've said this before, sketch challenges are my favorite and this challenge not only gives a sketch, but some colors to inspire us.  I made the following card for this week's Poppy sketch #11:


Here is the sketch and color combo we were asked to used:

Apologies for the dark photo of my card, just couldn't seem to get the photo brighter today.  The poppies on my card are a Whipper Snapper stamp; great stamps I really like them.

Glad you stopped by today.  Enjoy the Summer flowers,
the Autumn flowers will be here soon :)

Cutting Edge #8

I've been very into die cutting these days and the Cutting Edge challenges are just that, die cuts.  I made this card for this week's challenge #8, unfortunately I was too late to submit to the challenge :(:


Here is the inspiration card by Kay Miller:


The large scallop frame & the stitched frame are Mama Elephant dies.  All other die cuts on my card were sent to me by a stamping friend in Australia and the sentiment is a Memory Box stamp.

So glad you stopped by, pretty flowers always make my day :)

Be inspired.....

This week's challenge at The Card Concept is to be inspired by this photo:


The leafy pattern on the bed spread is what immediately caught my eye and I was inspired to use a large tree stamp I've had for some time and have never used, here's my card:


The tree stamp is from Holly Berry House, you must check this company out, such a gem, and the cards and examples at the store in Colorado City, CO are amazing.  The Just because stamp is from Technique Tuesday.

Thanks for stopping by today, trees are such a beautiful wonder.
My Dad loved trees and had favorites he would point out to us on drives around town :)

Life's Sweet

This week at the Less Is More challenge blog we have been given a sketch to get our creative juices flowing.  I do have trouble with CAS cards, at least I think I do, but I'm pretty happy with the card I made for this challenge:

Here is the Less Is More challenge sketch:


Thanks for stopping by today.  Yes, Life is Sweet!

Case Study 4th Anniversary - Week 4

This is week 3 of the 4th anniversary bog hop over at Case Study!  This week I cased a fabulous card by Erin, here's my card:

and here's Erin's card:

I took my inspiration from the design and the hearts on Erin's card.  I thought I had some wooden hearts but I didn't, so I chose to give my card a love theme and used the little wooden people I had in my stash.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Autumn is in the air (my favorite season).

Colorful Fusion....

This week at the Fusion Card Challenge both the colors of the image and the sketch caught my eye.  I combined both into a colorful card; and instead of flowers I chose to add a colorful Cupcake to my card.  I added a little diamond glaze to the cupcake for some pop!


Here's the Fusion inspiration combination:

When I think about it, I haven't made cupcakes in a very long time.  I think I'll add that to my agenda today.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a bright and cheerful day!
