Flowers, an Apron, and a Cat!

Had a week off from most my DTs so I played around a bit the last few days:

Played in the Splitcoast Stampers Clean and Simple Challenge last night which included specific colors (lavender, purple, green and blue):

Used some older SU! Flowers and some punched and twisted MS hydrangea punched flowers. Another Birthday card done so I can catch up on another late birthday!

Here is a bit different card - it is a prototype actually:

I work at Rheem Manufacturing (Water Heater Division) and my group mainly deals with The Home Depot. I need some Thank-You cards for work and thought this would be a good concept for them. I did this symbol with a pen (I know that is obvious) and will need to do future ones with my computer. I will also use black or white ribbon on future ones because the oranges on this clash a bit. I am still playing around since I will probably make about 20 of these (give me any suggestions you have!!!). Wouldn't this be great with a little gift card in the pocket?

Also caught up on a two SCS challenges - last week's Sketch Challenge and the Teaparty Challenge from two weeks ago. I needed to catch on the Teaparty challenge especially because it involves a friend's son. For his birthday, he requested cards to give to kids in a local hospital. He spent a lot of time in that hospital and feels connected to the children who have to spend their birthdays and holidays there - isn't that the sweetest! The challenge was to make a funny children's birthday card. I used the kitten image from Enid Barnes (available HERE from Squigglefly). Inside it says "but the dog ate it - I promise." Corny I know but I was channeling corny on Sunday!

Hope your week is going well so far! Hugz!!!!

Some Easter Cards

The Squigglefly Challenge this week is Easter Cards. I made mine with the Spring Bouquet Cup image by Pam Lehto. I needed another Easter card so I made another one with another image by Pam called Floppy Eared Rabbit. I computer generated my image and hand cut my carrots (I used the MS branch punch for the tops).

Easter is just around the corner so make a few more cards and come join us!

Some Nice Thoughts, Fun Memories, and Pretty Flowers

The newest Verve Challenge is Chevron Chic - to use Chevrons on your creation. I used some sparkling chevrons from CTMH and some Basicgrey paper - some with chevrons and some with some pretty birds. The Verve stamp Nicest Thoughts (its on sale btw) seem perfect with this paper. I needed some feathers and flowers so I cut some circles and made some rolled flowers and then hand cut some feathers.

I had some extra time to play today so I did the FS challenge on SCS. I cased THIS card of Lisa's.

I also made a couple of scrapbook pages using the CSI challenge #117 for inspiration.

Hope you had a good weekend too.

Hugz for Kathleen

One of the sweetest card artists are SCS is facing a big mountain right now and this card is going to her. You can read more about it HERE.

The papers I used are from K&Co and SU! and my sentiment is from the MFP Medallion set.

A Birthday Card for One of My Princesses

The new Pattie's Creations Challenge is Fancy Folds. Right now my favorite fold is the Accordion Card. HERE is the link to the tutorial that I learned from. I used the Princess Pumpkin Coach image from Pattie's Creations.

and here is part of the inside:

Both my princesses are in the picture, but this will be Allie's Birthday Card so the arrow points to her. On the other pages, I have a picture of her when she was very little and on the back is a birthday wish.

Hope you will show us your fancy folds and join in the Pattie's Creations Challenge.
