Challenges, Challenges and MORE Challenges!


I managed to squeeze out a little bit of mojo yesterday. It was QUITE the process. I looked at magazines. I read EVERY blog in my Google Reader. I asked peeps on Facebook to link up their blogs. And FINALLY I went around looking at all the challenge blogs. This is what I came up with.

The first card is for 2 Sketches 4 You sketch #47 and Simon Says challenge to make a GIRLY card. Girly is right up my alley. The stamps are Ippity. (Available in my sidebar.) The birds are from What Matters Most and the sentiment is from Simply Home. The frame is GCD. The DP is SU, the ribbon is Bazzill, the button is DeNami, the flower is Prima and the bling is Kaisercraft. The birds have been covered with Sparkly Fluff from Our Craft Lounge.

My next card is for the sketch over at Card Positioning Systems (CPS.) It is sketch number 156. I kind of love this tall sketch since it pushes my outside my A2 box. I will admit, I did think about making this into an A2 card. The stamps again are from Ippity, Sweet Thoughts of Spring. The designer paper is from Basic Grey Sugar Rush. The ribbon is from the $1 spot at Target. The bottom little layer there is yellow vellum from my stash. It's stamped with a scallop stamp from the set and then cut out. Aren't those scallops ADORABLE?!? I love that they have them in stamps now so I don't always have to go to my punches! :) The little chick is paper pieced and adhered with foam tape.

My last card is for two challenges. The Limelight challenge to use Mandy's tutorial for this cute little flower. And also for the Card Patterns sketch, number 53. I had to make the flower a bit smaller than I wanted because my button was too small. So, this flower only has 8 petals instead of 12 like Mandy's. The paper here is from Autumn Leaves. The button is DeNami. The bling is Darice. The sentiment is from Unity's Mix Up of Cuteness. And the ribbon is from Michael's. The die cut is Nesties Label 1.

Hope you have a great rest of your Thursday! I'm ready for the weekend, how about you?
