Sweet Stampin' Challenge (cute & cuddly)and Cards In Envy (stitching) provided the inspiration for this card. I have a friend who will be getting this as her late birthday card. Papers by DCWV and K&Co. Diecut by MME and image is by Bugaboo Stamps. Sentiment is computer generated.

This week's sketch is courtesy of Kristie M...and it is a fun one. I am feeling patriotic with the Fourth coming soon and thought it was time to break out a new OWH Hero Arts stamp. My card has only one patterned paper on it which I think is a record. I spent more time on the ribbon that the whole rest of the card...whewww. The sentiment is heat embossed as I think that red looks best that way. Have a great Sunday...

This month's freebie challenge at Birdie Brown is to use this super fun image and sentiment. I had so much fun coloring him. To go with that fun I offset the gold paper and added a punched border on the side. This will also be linked up to the Addicted to CAS. Their challenge theme is teenager. A star brad was added to the sentiment for a little extra fun.

I pulled three cards out of my mailing box. All use journaling cards, the first is made with Cosmo Cricket. K&Co chipboard and scrap papers. The other two are Echo Park with some great detail already printed on and then I added some stickers. I was going for boy/tween themed cards and hope that these are not sneezers...

Great sketch Cora Jean! I had this cute free image saved from Angelique at http://sliekje.blogspot.com/. Her digi included raindrops but I had a coloring issue so I fussy cut the image out and used this great paper from MakingMemories with heat embossed raindrops on it...sweet! I adjusted the sketch to include the twine as an accent instead of brads...my image was just a wee bit big and it looked too crowded on that side of the card. Thanks for looking!

Happy Sunday! Another wonderful sketch that was created based upon a great card by Yvonne. Unfortunately, my need to use my new Paper Smooches dies/sentiments (thanks to the MD Blog Hop) and some Prima "Hello Space Boy" paper made it hard for me to follow the sketch exactly. Because I did not think my first card was my best attempt I made a second. Let me know which you like better and why. Thanks!

This is a scrap card using one of those Simple Stories journaling cards. Yes, it would be much easier, less mess and more time efficient to just throw the scraps away. The one thing I have learned is you always have scraps unless you learn to use them or lose them. Making it fun to use them can be a stress reliever.
I really wanted to wrap twine around the middle rectangle as I have seen some really great cards using this technique and think..."why did I not do that".

Wowzers...where does the time go? I am soooo behind on OWH challenges. I did manage to get two MWT cards made this week: Travel and Water.
The plane on the first card is a sticker from EP and uses scraps. I am going to link it up to Paula's Bootcamp challenge: Variety. The clouds are different colors/prints/shapes. I also used the rule of odds.
My second card uses a digital image from and unknown (sad face) source found via the Free Digital Stamps blog. I did use Glossy Accents for the air bubbles.

I was especially lucky this weekend with my secondhand purchases. I was able to score a slightly used OWH HA clear stamp set for a bargain price as well as two punches, some paper (see the first card), other stamps, and ribbon. I love scrapbooking rummage sales!
The first card features Doodlebug Design paper.
I decided to make a second card that was more Jane's style since this was her sketch.. I realized that I could round the corners and make a little flower. Sentiment is CTMH.
