2 Sketches 4 U Sketch - a little late! whoops!

I cannot keep track of when all of these are supposed to be posted by, but I'm posting it anyway. The sketch is from 2 Sketches 4 U - a new sketch will be posted tomorrow so watch for it and give it a try! :)

I used the set Animal Stories as well as the coordinating Tall Tales Designer Series Paper. This was such a fun card to make. I also stamped the greeting "hello baby" from Teeny Tiny Wishes (I LOVE this font!) in Old Olive and the "bubbles" are from Circle Circus in So Saffron. I thought it was a fun look! Anyway, enjoy your Sunday!

Diva Coffee Break Designs Sketch Card & Kristina Werner Color Inspiration Challenge #50

Hello! I combined a couple of challenges to make this card as well as a stamp set, Always, that I hadn't used yet! I also hadn't yet used the Billboard strip die so that was fun to use for the "{YOU". The colors I used were Real Red, Crushed Curry, Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White. 5-1/2" doesn't divide equally by 3 so the two outside strips are 1-3/4" wide which leaves the middle one 2" wide but I thought it looked great anyway.

You can find the sketch HERE!

Friends 24-7 Mother's Day Card

I forgot to post this one! I made it for my mom for Mother's Day. Obviously the Baja Breeze is retired but any other blue would look gorgeous with this color combo as well (actually any other color really - I love combining one bold/fun color with basics like Chocolate Chip, Kraft, & Whisper White).

Hopefully I'll be back later today or tomorrow with some cards made with my new Stampin' Up! goodies which are arriving TODAY!!! Too bad my UPS man is usually here between 7 pm - 8 pm! Anyway off to work on swap cards for Convention!!! I'll be there in a month!
