For a friend...

This card is to honor a friend's incredible milestone, and I hope it's worthy! I used Just Add Ink's 90 Sketch Challenge for this one, and I absolutely adore the way the whole thing fell together...


And the sketch:

Sweet Birthday

I was just going through my latest pics, and realized I completely forgot to post my niece's 1st birthday card... the challenges I used are long expired now, but I thought I'd share it anyways ;)


Also, check out this fun blog candy on another blog, Melissa's Stampin' Voila

Mojo Monday 211 and Inkspirations 93

Today is my Dad's birthday, so I finally had a chance to use the lighthouse stamp I found, specifically for him last spring. Of course, shortly after that, Stampin' Up! released a set with one, but this is what I have ;)

The Mojo Monday sketch had a rectangle, just the right size (after flipping the sketch), and the Inkspirations color challenge was PERFECT for the lighthouse, and my dad's taste... although I swapped the Cherry Cobbler for Cajun Craze and Riding Hood Red ;)


And here are the sketches...


Free stamp set with 2 Simply Sent card kits!


This is a fabulous offer for all my class lovers, who love to make cards, but don't want to buy all the "stuff" or depend on their own creativity... easy peasy, but still personal, handmade cards, with a free stamp set. (No limit either... buy 4 sets, get 2 stamp sets... buy 6, get all 3 stamp sets!) Just throw in an ink pad and adhesive and you're good to go!

Here are the 3 Simply Sent sets and the 3 stamp sets, It's Your Day, Everyday Wishes, and You're Cherished, available. Please contact me directly to order though, as I don't have a SU website yet. Thanks!

Paris in the Fall

Just playing with some the beautiful new fall papers and stamps. I ended up with this sanded, linen postcard from Paris for the SUOnly 98, Pals Paper Arts 115 and Techno Stamper 195 challenges...


The SUO challenge was Leaves, PPAs was this fall picture below, and Techno Stamper's was this great sketch...

Birthday Pennants - Workshop Card #2

No challenges used here... just wanted to use all 5 new In Colors for my group who hasn't seen anything since our June class ;) The base here though, isn't Lucky Limeade, it's Pear Pizazz. The other card we'll be doing has the lime.

Creating Pretty Cards #4 (And Oct. Workshop card... yes ladies, it's coming soon!)

The lovely ladies at Craft Project Central have another challenge up, and as always, I love it!!! I was so excited that it had a prominent circle, which gave me the perfect chance to try my hand at this accordian flower (also called a medallion, or a lolly, on various blogs).


Here's the sketch:
