I need to make a bunch of teacher cards so I did up a couple using last week's Freshly Made Sketch as my jumping off point. The green patterned paper with the apples is from Stampin Up, the other papers are Studio Calico. Stamps and dies are Verve. Once I get the teacher cards done I'll move on to graduation. Thanks for looking!

I procrastinated doing this week's Mojo Monday card because I was sure my stamps were going to arrive this week, and they did! Stamps and dies are from Verve's latest release and the papers are from Studio Calico Classic Calico and Yearbook Collection paper packs. Thanks for looking!

This week's Paper Players challenge is a sketch. This is the first time I've tried the chalk technique on coloured paper. I used up some scraps of paper along with some Verve stamps, dies and ribbon. Still working through that stash of paper flowers I found too. Thanks for looking!

I came across a container of paper flowers that I had forgotten about. There are lots of colours and I've started by doing a mass production using the blue ones. I made four thank-you cards like the one pictured here and I've started four cards more using the same papers with pink cardstock & flowers. I think I'll make the pink ones birthday, I don't really need eight thank-you cards:) I've used a Stampin Up punch with Verve stamps and dies. Thanks for looking!

Here's my card for this week's Merry Monday challenge. My stamped image is from the Stampin Up set Lovely as a Tree. I stamped it once with Caramel ink and then again with Versamark and embossed with a some gold embossing powder. The bird is punched with a Stampin Up punch. I wish the trees had photographed a little better. Thanks for looking!

This week the Paper Players have chosen a clean and simple masculine theme for their challenge. I'm hoping this card looks masculine enough for a male grad card. I may copy it for a fathers day card too. The balloon and cloud stamps are Verve and the sentiment and background paper are Stampin Up. Thanks for looking!

I've used this week's ColourQ Colours to create a card with the Freshly Made Sketch 89. I've used Verve stamps & dies with some Stampin Up designer paper. The black cardstock came from my local scrapbook store and was already embossed. Thanks for looking!

I used this week's Paper Players colour challenge for the current Merry Monday sketch. The only Raspberry paper I had was from a Christmas paper pack so I went for it. I used an older Cat's Pajamas set for the image and sentiment, and a Verve stamp for the star. Thanks for looking !

For this week's Freshly Made Sketches I used a mix of Stampin Up and Verve. The floral image is a Stampin Up classic, Upsy Daisy. Sentiment, ribbon and pendant dies are Verve. It was a happy accident that I had a space to stamp "birthday wishes". Thanks for looking!
Still making Mothers Day cards, this time with the Colour Q 188 colours. I'm also going to enter this card in this week's Paper Players challenge of Mothers Day themed cards. The flowers stamps & dies & the border & banner dies are Verve. The flowers were stamped with Groovy Guava and look a little closer to Coral in real life. Butterfly was cut with a Nestability and the Mothers Day stamp is Stampin Up. Thanks for looking !

Here's one of those cards where you spend more time trying figure out what you're going to do than making the actual card. I used some Stampin Up paper that I've had for a while, its got large snowflakes flocked on to it. I added an embossed scallop velum circle, hoping not to cover too much of the pattern, and then a smaller white scalloped circle on top with a sentiment from Verve. The Merry Christmas sentiment and star die is Verve as well. This card is for Merry Monday 61.
Thanks for looking!

I'm getting my Freshly Made Sketches card in just under the wire but since it's a Mothers Day card I can also use it to play with this week's Paper Players Challenge. I still don't have enough Mothers Day cards so I may be entering a few with the Paper Players this week. Thanks for looking!
