Boy Birthday

Hello! A friend of mine at school asked me to make some cards for her son to take to birthday parties. He is 3 years old, so I wanted to make the cards bright and CAS. He also loves trains, so I decided on this cute stamp from Unity. I used the current sketch challenge from My Unity Place for my card design.

Papertrey September Blog Hop Challenge

Hello Papertrey Ink Friends! It's been a long while since I was able to participate in the blog hop and I'm so glad that I am able to today!! I was inspired by the colors and stripes in the inspiration photo (below) to create my card. I used score tape to adhere the glitter to my card. Then I used the same bright colors for my pennant. I enjoyed using these happy colors and can't wait to go blog hop and see what everyone else did!!

CS: White: Papertrey Ink, Yoyo Yellow, Tempting Turquoise: Stampin' UP, pink from my stash

Friends with Flair!

Happy Friday, Friends!!
I'm so happy to be able to join FWF this week! I used the Kit of the Month Sketch and then I forgot to use KOM stamps. Plus I used a set with the cutest leaves and didn't stamp any of them, so no entry for the Unity Challenge also. Well, that's how things have been going for me lately;)

My card is actually a mini 4x4 card. Such a fun size to make sometimes!! I did have to cut the pumpkin down to fit it on my card. I do like this sketch. You'll probably see it again soon!

Hang in There!

Hello, Friends! This adorable scarecrow is from Inky Antics. I found him at my LSS and just had to pick him up. Hmmmm.....I seem to be saying that more and more lately!! The sentiment was just too cute, also. I'm thinking it might also fit for some fun Halloween spider cards! The colors are muted fall colors, but they are a bit more vibrant than in this photo.

Have a great day!!

Hello! Tonight's card is actually a mini 4 x 4 card for the CAS-ual Friday challenge this week. I am also entering it in the Less is More Weekly Challenge. I saw this little sweetie at Archiver's and had to get her! I think that she's more scared to be dressed up than we are to look at her, LOL!

Happy Sunday! I'm playing along today with The Craft's Meow monthly sketch challenge and the Pink Elephant vintage challenge. I just got this new Halloween set from The Craft's Meow in the mail. I bought it because I really NEEDED the spiderweb image, but I've fallen in love with all the images. You're certain to see more of them soon:)

Fall Days are Fun Days

My good friend Barb has a birthday tomorrow and this is her card! She loves fall, so I knew my Caramel Apple Pure Innocence would be the perfect image for her card. I'm loving that fall is in the air, too! I plan to get out my fall decor tomorrow:) I used the September Sketch for You to Try again but took a few more liberties with it. I like the double panels and those rounded corners!

I'm linking up with this fun linky party:
