Challenges for a Challenging Thursday

It seems like lately, by Thursday Brady and I are just sick of each other.  Sigh...  What can you do?  Well, I think I got the ok from Dustin to send him to daycare just two mornings a week.  Hopefully, we'll be able to scrounge the money to do it.  

Anyhow, here are some cards for some challenges this week.  The first one is for Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday.  This week, Taylor's little girl Ava Grace (who was the guest Twinkie for the week) came up with a color challenge.  It was Close to Cocoa, Garden Green and Whisper White.  I did what I could.  I'm not thrilled with this card but what can you do?  The owl is from Inkadinkado.  The background is Wispy Grass from Unity.  This was a really hard color challenge for me since I'm usually using lots more "girlie" colors.  

This next card I made for a Paper Makeup Stamps challenge.  There is a sketch on their PCP group, there's a link on the blog.  I'm limited in my PMS since I gave up buying supplies for Lent so here's the Swirlie Tree again.  I only have one sentiment from PMS so I left off the sentiment and used a little bling instead.  This is just super simple.  



  1. Great cards Ashley!

    They are such a handful at that age and especially when you are pregnant. Sending you ((hugs))

  2. These are so cute, love that tree.

  3. Such cute cards! And I really hope it works out for you to send Brady to preschool or daycare - Carter started going when I was pregnant with Courtney for two mornings per week, and it just helps SO much having that little bit of time, to yourself now, and alone with the baby once he's here. My fingers are crossed for you!

  4. Hey Ash,

    Sorry I have not been by for a couple of days and man I have missed a lot in those two days!!!!

    I like the own card it was perfect for our challenge, and I really like the green flourishes on the sides!!!

    I have never used an owl stamp and I am seeing so many cute ones I have got to get one!!!!

    Great job on both challenges Ashley!!!


  5. Cute cards! I hope you get to do the daycare thing, I did that with my older one just 1 morning a week for awhile and even if I went back to bed - we just both needed a break. Good luck!
