Wow, I'm tired. I made this card earlier today, but it's after 2 am and I'm just now posting it. It's taking me a while too because I'm sleep deprived. But I get to go to a concert tomorrow! Yay! Big Daddy Weave is coming to town :)
I dug out my Mayberry kit to use up some scraps for this one. The challenge was paper piecing from the Ribbon Carousel, and the sketch was from Sweet Sunday Sketch. I thought the little diamonds on one of the B&T's would be perfect to paper piece into the stitched flower from Just for You. I like the way it turned out.
Paper: Mayberry; Colonial White Smoothie, and Cocoa cardstock
Stamps: Just for You
Other: Colonial White ribbon
This card is 5x7. I LOVE the way it turned out! It looks so much better in person. I took inspiration from the colors and the water theme from FYI. The rain drops and branches were made with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, and I added some Bitty Sparkles to the rain drops. The sketch was from Crazy4Challenges.
Paper: Black, Grey Wool, and Grey Flannel cardstock; white cardstock (not CTMH)
Stamps: free word art from Word Art Wednesday
Other: AP cricut cartridge, Bitty Sparkles.
This is my summer Olympics card for Simon Says. I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday. It's just a fun little card to congratulate someone for doing well :)

Stamps: American Celebration, Superhero WOTG, Adventure USA (for the diver)
Ink: Cranberry, Moonstruck, Black, Sunny Yellow, Topiary
Here's my pink card for CAS-ual Fridays. It's my first time making a card with a lot of "white space" (pink space LOL). I like the way it turned out. And I'm a Mary Kay girl, so I love pink :) This stamp set from Pemberly WOTG is always done with blue and brown or yellow, or just black and white. I like it better in pink :)
I don't have any copics, and I like the look of it in black and white, so I just left it that way. Close To My Heart is discontinuing their markers, so I'm holding out until convention (less than 2 weeks away!!!!) to purchase copics, CTMH markers, or anything similar. I used the free digi image from A Day for Daisies and then CTMH's Perfect Day stamp set to do the background. I think it looks kind of cool. What do you think? Craft-a-scene's challenge was beach themed - you have to have a bit of sand and water. A Day for Daisies' theme was texture, so I added the Ponderosa Pine Sassy Strands.
Last week my patriotic card was in the top 3 at Pals Paper Arts! It was my first time, hopefully not my last. I think my artwork is improving. Any feedback would be helpful!!!!!
I was chosen as a Colour Q courtier for this card I submitted last week. I'm so excited!!!!
Here is a new one for Colour Q, and I used the sketch at Pals Paper Arts.
I was inspired by the paisley in this blouse, and when I saw that there was a paisley stamp in the rock the block set, I knew I just had to use it. So I random stamped this piece of paper and layered it onto a Buttercup card base. Doesn't that pattern rock?!?!
I'm also entering this into heart2heart's wedding theme challenge.
Paper: White cardstock (not CTMH), Buttercup and Pacifica cardstock
Stamps: Rock the Block
Inks: Holiday Red, Pacifica, Buttercup, Grey Wool
Other: Buttercup Marker, Cranberry Bigger Brad, Prima flower (not CTMH)
The Friday challenge at Frosted Designs was to create your own embellishments. I made my own embellishments by stamping the teddy bear in Crystal Blue ink and embossing him with Clear Detail Embossing Powder, then cutting him out with the 1 1/4 inch Circle Punch and stamping "thank you" all around. This sketch is from the Sweet Stop.
Paper: White cardstock (not CTMH), Dotty for You, Heavenly Blue and Crystal Blue cardstock
Stamps: Wonderland WOTG, Birthday Boy, Happy Holidays
Inks: Crystal Blue
Other: Clear Detail Embossing Powder, Lagoon Baker's Twine
I'm going to a graduation party today, so here is a card for him. I tried to make it non-fussy. I made it with the colors from the Play Date Cafe, I used the Mojo Monday sketch, and I added 10 graduation caps for the 10 things challenge at Our Creative Corner.
Paper: White, Black and Moonstruck cardstock
Stamps: Happy Holidays, Pair-a-phrase (for the inside)
Inks: Black, Black Staz-on

This is a card I made for these 4 challenges. Dynamic Duos said to use Melon Mambo and Black. I used Smoothie, but I think Melon Mambo is a funny name. I had to use 3 papers, 3 buttons, 3 flowers, and 3 pearls for crazy4 challenges. I found 3 patterned papers with Smoothie: Mayberry, Dotty for You, and Roxie. Those were my textures for the twist at Sweet Stop, (also the grosgrain ribbon). The challenge at Our Creative Corner was to use buttons and burlap or bows. I didn't have any burlap, so I used a bow.
B&Ts: Mayberrie, Roxie, Dotty for You
Cardstock: white (not CTMH), Black
Stamps: Sweet Moments
Inks: Smoothie, Black
Other: Smoothie buttons, Smoothie ribbon, White Daisy Just Blooms Paper Flowers, Mocha Opaques adhesive pearls
