ColourQ 281 & Freshly Made Sketches 175

 I've use the Freshly Made Sketch 175 with this week's ColourQ  Challenge to make this birthday card. I tilted the panel in the sketch (just slightly) and used some Verve stamps and Verve ribbon. I don't know what possessed me to make black flowers LOL. Thanks for looking!

Mojo Monday 385

 Here's my card for this week's Mojo Monday 385. I think I've been using this same mix of papers for a while now, I'm really wanting to buy some new papers but am going to force myself to use up some packs that I have:) I've used a Verve stamp from the set Peaceful Medallions and a Verve sentiment from another set. Thank for looking!

Freshly Made Sketches 173 & ColourQ 279

For this week's Freshly Made Sketch 173 I've used the ColourQ 279 colours of Black, Red, & Newsprint plus a Neutral. I just got a package of doily hearts and was using one for sure. I sponged it with Kraft coloured ink so it would show up a little better against the mostly white background paper. The heart is cut with a Verve die and the sentiment is from Verve as well. Thanks for looking!

Mojo Monday 384 + The Paper Players 231 Colour Challenge

I've flipped this week's Mojo Monday 231 sketch on its side and combined it with the Paper Players 231 colour challenge of Coral, Red & Black. I've used Verve dies, ribbon and a Verve sentiment stamp. I don't usually flip sketches so I hope I didn't mess it up:) Thanks for looking!

Viva La Verve February Week1

Here's my card made using the first Viva la Verve sketch this year. So this is for the first week of February and there will be a new sketch every week. I've used a favorite Valentine sentiment stamp from Verve and some Verve dies. The next sketch is on Friday the 13th, the day before Valentines Day so if I get it made right away it will probably be another Valentine:) Thanks for looking!

Freshly Made Sketches 172

 Here's my card for the Freshly Made Sketch 172 which once again uses this cute little Stampin' Up image that I've pulled out of my stash. I've paper pieced the Elephant and the heart on top of the trunk and then used a Verve die and stamp for the sentiment. I don't think I'll be putting this stamp away again for a while:) Thanks for looking!

The Paper Players 230 & ColourQ Challenge 278

I'll start this post by admitting that an Elephant isn't exactly furry but most of my critter stamps are for Christmas cards:) I've used a Stampin Up stamp for my main image and then a Verve sentiment with some Verve dies for this card that is for the Paper Players 230 "Critter-Tine" and the        ColourQ Challenge #278. Its hard to see the Pumpkin Pie, I coloured two of the heart flowers with a Pumpkin Pie marker and the other hearts are coloured with Melon Mambo. Thanks for looking!
