SPARKS Challenge

This is my card for the SPARKS challenge at Paper Smooches. I made a ”Thank you for the babyclothes” card. I used the bottom part of the owl from Chubby Chums (and one side of the tall snowman in Swanky Snowdudes) to craete a little frilly onsie for the supercute Chickie – and it fit her perfectly (-: !!!

Delightfully Random!

I just love the Tuesday Trigger picture at Moxie Fab World this week (like all other weeks too (-:)  - so inspiring!, and if I have the time I'll create more cards inspired by it. For this card I used one of Paper Smooche's free digis (So very generous - thanks Kim) that I've had printed out for ages.
Paper from Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon.

Hey Chickie

Here's my take on the current sparks challenge picture at Paper Smooches. It is a card I made, but wish it was a card my DH had made for Me - to go with a beautiful bracelet or necklace (-: . I'm not complaining, it's just the way it is, like Ior would have said.
 At least I had fun making it and think it will be perfect for my sister or a friend even if the cat looks a bit "manly" in gray!

Warmest Wishes

My Christmas card today is based on the sketch,  from Lily Pad Cards Sketch Challenge (I flipped it upside down and hope that was OK) (and I'm using the resist technique so I thought I might as well show it off there too!).  I  made it small - 4x3 and CAS for CAS-ual Fridays.  Also - I didn't use any patterned papers for the challenge at Wee Memories
Have a wonderful day!

Thanks - You are a blessing to me!

My card today is made for the CREATE challenge to use toothpick flags and for the "inspired by a song" challenge at Simon says stamp challenge. My song is Blessed by Elton John and means a lot to me - Dreaming about it for a long time, I'm so blessed to finally have my wonderful little son Ted who means the world to me! I kept it vintagey for the Pink Elephant challenge and the colors "in the same ballpark" as the colors at Kathy's Lily Pad Palette challenge .

This card, Two of Clubs, is made for a super fun challenge hosted by the endlessly inspiring Cath at Moxie Fab world. The challenge is to incorporate playing card(s) in an innovative way. I made a card, with my own playing card, specially designed for my Golf and bridge playing Dad! So I'll also enter it for the G challenge at Cards for Men .

I created my playing card by stamping the frame from Button Boutique, PTI, then made the clubs from the dots in Hope Owl's well from Wilsons Designs and stamping half an I as the "foot" and the 2 is from the Traffic Signs set from Gel-a-tins.


It is finally Saturday (working full time again is tough )-:  ) and time for another great sketch from the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, this week's sketch is designed by one of my absolute favorite designers, the super talented Anya Schrier.
