Creative Scraps Sunday Challenge

Okay, I have been debating about using this card for these challenges.  I probably should make a new one, but I was so tired when I finished, I just going to go for it! It is just something about her eye, I do not know what happen, so I learned my lesson and will not be making cards after 9pm while watching TV:)

I am entering this card at Techniques by Trish, this is there first Creative Scrap Sunday challenge.  This week is fall/Halloween using Paper Doll dress up and to add ribbon to your project.

Thanks for stopping by!

The Paper Variety Challenge

A friend requested a card for a baby boy!  I remade the airplane card because I think it is so cute!  I used different paper, my husband said he does not like it!  He made he second guess myself, but I got over it:)  I think I went a little too far out of the box with the colors :)  So, I am entering it in the Paper Variety Challenge.  For the challenge, you need to include something you see in the sky on the project.

Cardstock  Recollections

Made by Momo/ Fantabulous Cricut Challenges

This is my entry for the challenges over at Made by Momo and Fantabulous Cricut Challenge.  Momo wants you to use green, yellow, orange and include faux stitching or doodling.  Fantabulous Cricut is requiring you to create a project using some type of stitching, hand, machine or faux stitching.  I know it is Fall, but not in Florida:(  So, I created something summery and I used a new cart I purchased about 3 weeks ago.  U know, I have to make sure the husband sees me using my new toys:) TFS!!!

Baby Boy

I made this card for a friend that is attending a baby shower.  The only request she had was I use the colors blue and purple.  I looked perplexed, ravaged thru all my paper stacks and single papers.  So, I pulled out everything, purple, blue or some combo of.  Well, here is the end results, I really like this.  My husband approves:)  The card is 4x9, I really like this size card.

Hello, our Women's Ministry is starting a Book club and I get to introduce the first book.  So, I decided I would make bookmarks for anyone that ordered the book.  I saw these bookmark's on Made by Momo's Upstream class, she does such cute projects.  They were so cute, and I felt this would be a great gift.  The EW stands for Every Woman, which is what we call our Women's Ministry.  Thanks for stopping by:)

Momo's Tuesday Challenge

Here is my creation for Momo's Tuesday Challenge.  This week's theme is to make a card for someone "Just Because"!!! The idea is that you send it out this week to someone and put a smile on their face "Just Because". You do not need to use the Just Because Cartridge, just a "Hello", "Missing You", Thinking of You" kind of card.   I got a call from a friend that is going thru "life" and we know that life sometimes beats the hell out of you.  I made this card for her because she like "piggies".   If she smiles, I succeed:)

Hatty Birthday

A friend requested a card for her aunt's birthday.  The only information I received was she loves purple and church.  So, I figured a hat would meet the church criteria:)  And I used a lot of purple.  I even created my own background paper, so it would be in the purple family.

Momo Challenge/ Whimsical Wednesday Challenge

My sister's birthday is coming up this month, I needed to make her a card!  This card is for Momo and Whimsical Wednesday Challenge. For WWC, you had to use buttons, brads and/or bling.  So when I saw Momo's challenge this was my motivation.  The challenge is to make a project that's black, white and one other color.  My color was yellow.  I really do love this card for many reasons.  First, it's for my sister, she live in Atlanta, so I don't get to see as often as I would like:)  Second, I got to use a lot of stickles:)  Third, I got to use my new princess face Peachy Keen stamps and the best reason, I got to use my new Gypsy for the first time.  I love my Gypsy, I used the hide contour feature for the face.  I am still learning and feel so blessed to be able to purchase my Gypsy:)  Thanks for stopping by!!!!
