CPS Sketch Challenge #222 - Father's Day

Can't believe it's almost Father's Day! Where has half the year gone already?! CPS Sketch Challenge Blog has a new sketch out and it worked perfectly for a Father's Day card for my hubby!

I used Close To My Heart stamps, which I stamped with Distress Inks and colored with colored pencils and K & Company patterned paper.

 I placed two brads on either end of the 'happy' sign and popped it with foam dots.

Amie made her card as well and stamped, colored, sponged and added lots of brads and buttons.  She was very excited!

 I think maybe Tim Holtz will be featuring her technique!

Happy Father's Day to the Best Dad!!!

IC card sketches #118

I found another great sketch challenge blog, Inspirational Card Sketches, and decided on a pink flower card as a birthday card.  As I recently moved and a lot of stuff is still packed, I just pulled out my 'crop' stuff and went from there.  I used Cosmo-Cricket patterned paper and chipboard flower, and stamped with the March stamp of the month, from Pink by Design, I won a while ago.

Happy Birthday Rayme!

My baby sister, Rayme is turning 24 on Friday!  I hadn't seen her in forever it seemed and was so happy to have a visit from her this past weekend.  I needed a quick card, and since I just moved 2 weeks ago, I had limited supplies!

The challenge at the Heart 2 Heart blog was a sketch challenge, and Drunken Stampers blog's challenge was to create a birthday card.

 CTMH paper pack and Birthday stamp pack.  The bottom stamped image is a checklist of birthday things: -make a wish, - blow out candles, etc. Very cute! The paper is double sided, so I cut it in 4 pieces and reversed 2 to make the sketch (below)
 Of course you always have to have some glitter!

 Me, Rayme and other sis, Jann
Happy Birthday Rayme!

Scrapbook Day!

Recently I spent part of a day at Scrapbooker's Paradise with a friend and my sister and got a whopping 2 pages done!  It was a fun day though, chatting and scrapbooking and having lunch with two great girls.  We all need a day like that once in a while!

 I used a K & Company paper pack
 This little CC Designs stamp was so cute.  I watercolored it with Tombow Markers and placed her on the log stamp.
 Close To My Heart alphabet stamps
 K & Company paper
I stamped a flower stamp on cardstock, then cut around the blossom and used foam tape to pop it up.
