Divas Sketch Challenge #68

Happy Weekend!!!  It's a busy one for me!  My stamp club met last night--so much fun!!!  We made three little candy treats--I'll show those to you tomorrow!!  Today is reserved for the Divas' Sketchy Saturday!!  I have two cards to show you--this first one I made, and was so proud of myself!  Then, I read the "fine print" on the challenge, and I was supposed to use a line-image and color it!!!  Silly me!!!


So, here's my next try--basically the same card, but I did it right this time!! haha!!

On both cards, I used Rose Red and Bermuda Bay--took the colors from the Welcome Neighbor Designer Paper Pad (Sale-a-bration).  The first card uses the sentiment from the With all My Heart stamp set.  The second card uses the Whimsical Words and Love You Much Stamp sets!!

Hope you all have a GREAT day!!!  Come back tomorrow for some fun Valentine ideas!!!

C&c 007
I used the Vintage Vogue Stamp Set, along with the Pink Flamingo Designer Paper.  The ribbon is our new satin ribbon, in Black, and the scallops were done with the new Scallop Trim punch!!

New Challenge -- Compose a Card!

Becky O. has a new challenge on her blog!!  It's so much fun, and so easy--she gives you the measurements and colors!!!  You can see all the details HERE.  And, here is my card:

Birthday Bash!!!

What a great time we had yesterday afternoon!!  We had a packed house, but it didn't seem to bother anyone!  Here are a couple of the cards we made:

I promised them a masculine card, and this is what I came up with!  It uses the Wanted and It's Your Birthday stamp sets.


And here's a girly card!! I absolutely love this new stamp set, Vintage Vogue!!  It's very easy to work with, and produces such beautiful results!!!  The background is done with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder--so crisp!!!!  And, you know how much I love my Big Shot!!
