Memorial Day

I made this card using the Saturday sketch from PCP. Because it's Memorial Day I decided to go with a patriotic theme :) I was hoping to join the cards for heros blog hop, but as usual I'm running behnid due to my hectic schedule.
I do plan on using this card for the 25 + 2 so I'm excited to get to work on those. Check out the website, it's definately worth your time!!

thank you card

This was the thank you card I made for the little guy to give to his teacher for the end of the school year. Colors are cranberry, goldrush and outdoor denim.

freaky friday challenge

The rules for this weeks challenge was to use tissue or toilet paper. So I crumpled some t.p. up to add some color to my base card. The square behind the flower, the leaves on the flower and the center of the flower is all toilet paper. Let me tell you, this is difficult trying not to rip the paper and somehow get it adhered to your card. Can't wait for next weeks challenge!

Here's the one layout I completed this weekend for National Scrapbooking day :) The top Picture will go on the left side and the open space is for journaling. I still might add some embellishments, I'll have to see after the journaling is done. The papers are from the new Summer Idea Book. They worked perfectly with my pics from a trip up to Pinetop.

card challenge (some new stamp sets)

These are for the card challenge this week over at PCP. The new summer Idea Book for CTMH just went live on May 1st so I decided to use some of my new sets. The top card uses C368 Treetops, just couldn't resist all the cute trees in this set, and the Back Country paper pack.
For the second card I used paper from the Bella paper pack and "thanks" is from the new Thank You set D361 (great set of 19 stamps). The flowers you may recognize from my last post, they are from the Aspiration C1340 set from the Spring Idea Book.
Had fun following this template, althought it did take me a while to decide on the size of the card and the circle. Really bummed now that I'm using my coluzzle more that they are no longer going to sell it :(

thank you card

Used the Unforgettable paper pack and Aspiration and Kanji Phrases stamp sets from CTMH. Second generation flowers using sorbet and tulip and outlined in cocoa. DTP with desert sand around the edges. Really liked how this one turned out, the colors were way better in person.

cinema challenge

Started this card for the cinema challenge several weeks ago and just finished yesterday. I've been way too busy lately. The theme was Lion King so you have to take something from the movie and translate it into a card. Way fun, might attempt to do the next one on time :) This group is another one from Paper Craft Planet. This weeks is Mary Poppins....hmmmm do I have any umbrella stamps???
