Bella Blvd and Some Sketches

Ok, so I've been crafting really slowly through my 200 cards. Mostly I've been sick with this stupid virus that won't go away. Also, some of the cards I've made were for calls and I like for those to be perfect so I don't just slop them together. Finally, the point of the self challenge is NOT for me to bust through as many cards as I could as fast as I can. The point is to use the supplies I have and re-discover all the wonderful things that are already hiding in my scrap room.

But today, I decided to bust some cards out. What can I say? Some days, I feel like making a bunch. Plus, we didn't do much today so I had plenty of time. I did take a nap, I am trying to recover from this darn thing but I can't seem to kick it. Anyhow, today I pulled out some Bella Blvd paper that has gone long neglected and brought up a bunch of sketches. Here's a few of the cards I came up with.

This first card is for my friend Tenia's Jazzy Paper Designs Inspiration challenge. I want to say I've played along with this challenge before but I'm not sure. (Sorry, Tenia!) So, here's my take on her challenge this week, it's a sketch. All the paper is Bella Blvd Plastino, the ribbon is MFT, the stick pin is Dritz.
This card is using the Card Patterns sketch for this week. This uses Bella Blvd's All Inclusive line. The only things I added are the dew drops and the kraft card stock.
This last one is another one for the EBtKS challenge. I like the sketch, it's so easy to use! I added some pearls to the flip flops and that's about it.
Have a great night everyone!

  5. I LOOOOOOOOVE these! How fun!! And I love your challenge to make 200 before buying anything. I already broke my deal--and bought some stuff. EH! I wish they only came out with new stuff once a year! Then I would be able to use my things...and save for the new ones:)

    I need to check out that EBTKS challenge--I'm a bit behind too:)

    Hope you are feeling better! LOVE that turtle:)
