Nacho Average Challenge #95

Good morning!!  It's a beautiful day here in the sunny southwest--of course, we're lucky because we don't get too many "ugly" days!  We're spoiled! haha!!

There's a fun sketch challenge over on the Nacho Blog!


And, here's my card:


I used Starburst Sayings -- so glad it found it's way into the new catalog!!  It's one of my favorite sets!  I paired it with designer paper from the new Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack--love the colors in this stack!!  They work great for masculine cards!

I hope you'll play along with us -- click HERE to get to the blog!!


Baby Card


Sorry for the poor image--I stamped the monkey over and over to creat a background.  I used Pink Pirouette, and it just doesn't show up in pictures!  I'm even outside in the bright sunlight!!!  haha!!  Anyway, this is a card I made for a friend of mine, for her baby shower.


Nacho Average Challenge #94

Good morning!  It's time for another color challenge from the Nachos!!!


These really reminded me of the sea, so that's what I went with!!


I used my aqua painter to "paint" three strips of color on the water color paper.  Then, I stmaped my little fishies in Black Stazon Ink.  Pretty cute, huh?!!!

Be sure to leave your link over at the Nacho Blog, so that we can all see your awesome ideas!!!


Nacho Average Challenge #93

Good morning!!  and welcome to another great sketch from the Nacho Average Challenges!!  Head on over there for more inspiration, and to share your creation with us!!  

Here's the sketch:


and my card:


I used the Countless Sayings Photopolymer Stamp Set, along with one of the new paper stacks, Moonlight!  I really love the new In Colors -- the two used here are Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss!


Two for One!!

It was a nice quiet morning here at my house!  So, I took advantage and stamped!!  I used two of my favorite challenges for inspiration:  Freshly Made Sketches and Colour Q:


Here's my card:


I used the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set--so glad it made it into the new catalog!!!  Colors are right from the challenge, except I substituted Soft Sky for the Bashful Blue (I don't have bashful blue!)  The tag was made using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch!

Enjoy your Sunday!!!
