Coming Soon: A New Challenge Blog

I love card and scrapbook challenges...they motivate me and jump start my creativity.  An online friend of mine -- Tammi Bennett is starting a brand new blog on May 1st and she is giving away some goodies before the challenges even begin.

Happy Easter Cole

 
I hope my 8 year old grandson Cole does not think he is too old for this card.  It is really hard to make Easter cards for tween boys.  I think next year I will just send them candy and money....I am sure they will like that!!
 
I am entering this card in Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge -- Animal Antics
 
Have a wonderful rest of the week -- the weekend is in sight!!

Have an Egg-cellent Easter

 
Making an Easter card for a 12 year old boy is not an easy thing but I hope I achieved it with this card for my grandson Jacob.  He is a sweet kid and I just sent a package of goodies for him and his brother Cole today.  They live in Indiana and I really miss getting to spend holidays with them.
 
For this card I used this sketch from Always Playing With Paper:

Week 13


Week #13 -- the last week of March was a very busy week for us.  It included a visit from an out of town friend, a business trip and a concert and chance to see and vist with Dave's friend Joel who is in Night Ranger.  I was able to document it all on my 2 page spread.
 
Here is the left page:
 
 
And here is the right page with the concert pictures and souvenirs:
 
 
I am entering these pages in Stuck on U Sketches PL challenge to use a top note.  There is a top note shape in the lower left hand corner on my left page.
 
Thanks for checking out my pages.

Happy Birdie to You

One of my favorite challenge blogs -- Lawnscaping has a new challenge up to use a new tecnique.  Well I took on that challengewith this card with not one, but two new to me techniques. For the first  tecnique I broke out my brand new Lawn Fawn Hippo Birdie stamp set and matching die set.  I have never stamped and die cut my images before. Using the Lawn Fawn set made it quick and easy although I think I will color my images next time BEFORE I die cut them.
 
The nest new tecnique that I used on this card is embossing paste and a stencil.  I broke open my new jar of yellow embossing paste and a polka dot Heidi Swapp stencil and did a tone on tone yellow panel for my card.
 

I am entering this card in the Lawnscaping Challenge #79

I used this wonderful sketch from Mojo Monday for this card and am entering it over there as well.
 
 
That is it for now.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely, creative day.
