iheart2stamp sketch challenge card

I had a lot of fun making this card, had a few problems with the lighting on this card, as the darker colors look blue, when in reality they are brown. I like the way it turned out though.

Dutch Dare Card Challenge

Every couple of months my local card club gives us a challenge, it might be old cards, fiber, ugly stickers, images, etc and you have to use them to make cards for our group. This month we were given an image, so I took the sketch challenge from Dutch Dare and used it. The sketch was interesting and I think I like the way the butterflys turned out (got them at the dollar store)

Truly Scrumptious Challenge & Scripture Scrappers layout

Today truly must have been my day to think about marriage - for the Truly Scrumptious Challenge I made a wedding card, I do feel this is an interesting sketch and I enjoyed using it. I also added a little color to the typical silver, gray, black and white, I felt it needed a little punch.

I am also playing along with Danielle's Scripture Scrappers site and made this "Love" layout this week, using my DD and SIL's wedding picture.

Mojo Monday week 77 sketch challenge

I am making cards for my church, they send out between 80-100 cards a month. They send out Thinking of You, Sympathy, and Get Well cards. This turned out more challenging than I thought. I wanted to come up with a card that they would feel would be as nice to send out as a store bought card, plus I had to stay away from lots of emblessishments so they can be sent out for forty-two cents. My goal is to make one set of six cards a month. I started with a Thinking of You card. Another challenge is finding Christian based rubber stamping companies. Three companies that have some great stamps are Eureka Stamps, Verve, and my favorite Touche (they give me free rubber when I order from them, they are a small family run business) So this week I used the Mojo Monday sketch for my card. I was concerned as my lamb, is a very big image, but he turned out fine.

Mojo Monday week 76 sketch challenge

I love sketch challenges, it helps me come up with new and exciting cards. This one was done for the Mojo Monday Week 76 sketch challenge. I hope it reminds you of spring, as it is just around the corner

Sketch Challenge I heart you 2/28 - for iheart2stamp

I love this particular sketch, actually used it for two different cards this week. I like its simplicity, but also the fact that the image is towards the top to catch your eye.
