The Play Date Cafe Challenge 129: (the last card!)

Here is my last card for the current Play Date Cafe challenge.

Here are the colors:


                                                      And here is my card:




Again, I used some various photos to give you a better feel for the card.

I love the way this card turned out. I stamped the designs on the card with purple ink, then on the side with black ink. I added the sentiment with the punched circles and the yellow cardstock strips.

The Play Date Cafe Challenge 129: Take 5!

Here is my 5th, yes 5th card for the current Play Date Cafe challenge.

I hope it's OK to enter this many cards! If it's not that's fine :)

Here are the inspiration colors:

And here is my card:






I used some different photos so you can get a better feel for the card.
I stamped the peacock feather stamp multiple times, and added the dark purple cardstock strips around the stamped images.
Then I stamped the sentiment right on the card, but it didn't turn out right, so I stamped it on purple cardstock and added it over the messed up one.

Hello again...here is my 2nd card for the current Play Date Cafe challenge.

Here are the colors:

And here is my card:




I stamped the skyline on the card and on the purple cardstock. I also stamped the sentiment on cardstock, and added punched circles.

Then, I cut the one corner off the card. I was originally going to cut both corners, but I liked the card like this so I kept it like that.

April’s Virginia’s View Challenge! (1st card)

Hello! I hope you are enjoying your weekend :)

Today I have a card for

April’s Virginia’s View Challenge!

Here is the inspiration photo!



It's a pretty photo, don't you think?
Here is my card:



I used the colors in the photo as the inspiration for my card.

I stamped the medallions (which is a Hero Arts stamp) and the sentiment (also from Hero Arts) and I was finished! 
I found this photo hard to work with, I don't know why, but it wasn't easy to make a card inspired by it, but I'm happy with the way the card turned out.
Today is Saturday, so I have some chores to do, then I will,  Lord-willing be able to make some cards! 

Oh, and I was an honorable mention (Cream in our Coffee) at the Play Date Cafe! This is the 1st time I've ever been awarded anything in a challenge :) 




Jesus loves you!

Oh, and here is a link to my Flickr Photostream...

Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge!

Here is a card for the current Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge!

Here was the yummy inspiration photo!



Here is my card:




I took a bunch of little stamps from some various Paper Smooches stamp sets, and stamped them in some of the colors in the photo! Then I added the sentiment on purple and orange/yellow cardstock, also based on the colors in the photo!

Yep, that stamping took a long time! I hope you like it :)

CAS-ual Fridays: Sketch (take two)

Hello again! I'm back!
I have another card for the current CAS-ual Fridays challenge!

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:




I stamped the inchies in various colors and the sentiment once in black, then inked it in the same colors the inchies were stamped in and stamped it again!



http://cas-ualfridays.blogspot.com/2012/04/cfc49.html

Last night my friend Christine slept over and we were up until about one in the morning! 
We finished watching Bleak House (the one with Gillian Anderson) which we have been watching for awhile, and watched Night at the Museum. 
Today my mom took Christine, me and my sister Hannah to see Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. 
I really liked it! I love action/adventure and fantasy kind of movies, and this was both! 
I also went to Michaels to get some blank cards and envelopes and I got a Stampendous stamp set that was on sale, and some cute chipboard shapes which will be great for Mother's Day cards! 
Christine's dad picked her up awhile ago, and in a little bit we are going to hook up the laptop to the TV  screen and watch Netflix! (we will watch The Andy Griffith Show and Adam 12!) Wish you were here Christine!

P.S. Thanks for the wonderful comments everyone leaves! They are so nice :) 



Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: Watercolor Butterflies

Hello...again!
Here is my 1st card for the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: Watercolor Butterflies.

The trigger was so pretty!
I love the colors :)



Here is my card:

I took the colors in the photo and used them as the inspiration for my card.
I also was inspired by the watercolor look... I inked the butterfly stamp (which is from CTMH) and then dabbed it on or with a damp washcloth, which then gave it a watercolor look when it was stamped.
