World Cardmaking Day

Well I didn't get to make a bunch of cards today, had other things to do but here is one I made today for a challenge at Blitsy and  the Hope You Can Cling to challenges. Tomorrow will be a busy day as well, we have two showings on the house and then maybe I can come back and get some cards made for all the challenges that haven't expired. 
Happy World Cardmaking Day to all my crafty peeps


It's day 3 for the Hope You Can Cling To challenges over at Splitcoaststampers and the challenge is I Am A Warrior. To make my card I used an stamps from My Favorite things that's a couple years old so it's probably retired but I like it so I kept it around. I made my background ombre' so I could enter it in the Simon Says Monday challenge.

Crazy Coffee

Today is the last day of the Coffee Lovin Papercrafter's fall bloghop, so I had to create one more card because I had bought this greeting a few months ago to use in the hop and I completely forgot about it until I ran across it the other day. Then I thought what kind of image do I use with it and those crazy birds came to mind. I used the little coffee cup he's holding from a MFT set.

Hope You Can Cling To ~ Day 2

It'd day two of the HYCCT challenges at Splitcoaststampers, I hope you will play along and make cards for this card drive and bring a smile to the face of a woman battling cancer.
The challenge today is to use a free style college on your card, I used a couple sets from Stampin Up to make my college, Awesomely Artistic and Butterfly Basics. I stamped the bunch of flowers in Delightful Dijon and then used an water brush so slightly color them in. I added in some Bermuda bay to match the greeting.

It's Here!

It's October!
Know what that means?  The Hope You Can Cling To card drive is finally here. If you do not know what I am talking about head over to Splitcoaststampers and check it out. For the entire month of October, there will be a different challenge or maybe two or even three for you to make a card for, then at the end of he month you take all your cards and mail then to MD Anderson to the women who are fighting breast cancer, and ...wait for it... there are prizes involved, lots of them!

My card is for one of the challenges today, split the difference- to use a sentiment that goes across the front of your card to separate the top and bottom. I used the Lighthearted Leaves and the Six Saying sets from Stampin Up. I stamped my greeting and masked it off with post-it tape, while I stamped my leaves and sponged around them.

Come play along and bless some women!

Happy Coffee Day

Happy Coffee Day!
I am not a coffee drinker but i do love the smell of it and playing along with the Coffee Lovers Fall bloghop. My computer wasn't cooperating for me to get my card uploaded by 6 pm, but I finally made it.

Get Sketchy

Happy Monday! 
Today I am playing with some Wplus9 and Inktense Pencils. To create my card I made my own background paper using the Doodle Buds set from Wplus9 and colored it with Inktense pencils. I used a die from Sugar Pea designs to stamp the greeting on. A little strip of paper from Lawn fawn matched the Watermelon Wonder cardstock perfectly.

I am entering this one in a couple challenges
