Die Cuttin Diva's Shabby Chic challenge, and the Basic Grey Pink and Brown challenge, and this is what I came up with. I used paper from the Basic Grey Blush stack, and a Kraft cardstock base. The ribbon was just some pink sheer 7/8" that I had in my stash, for the edging I used a Fiskars border punch, whose name has tragically been lost in the recesses of my mind.

MAG challenge, a very dear friend of mine (actually several friends) have been so very supportive as I have been going through some things in my life, and I am (hopefully) at the tail end of the most difficult of those struggles and so I am taking the opportunity to tell these beautiful women how much thier friendship and support has meant to me. The bears are from the Doodlecharms cartridge, the paper is from the Dots and Stripes (DCWV). I embossed the bottom paper with my Swiss Dots folder and the chipboard elements are made by Provo Craft.

Whimsical Wednesdays fall colors challenge, the twist on this challenge was that you had to add a handmade embellishment, and so I am sincerely hoping that my flower arrangement counts as an embellishment. I am also entering it into the Colors of Autumn over at Cooking with Cricut. Thank you for taking the time to visit, your comments are always appreciated.This card is 5X7, which is much bigger than I usually do, but I needed the extra room to accomadate my late night inspiration. The vase is from the Walk in My Garden cartridge, the papers are Basic Grey, a stack called (I think) Hang Ten and a stack called Archaic. The vase is foam taped, double thick to give enough height to fit the flower arrangement. The sentiment is a stamp that I have used before, it came from Michaels. I am entering this into 2 challenges, the

Whimsical Wednesdays and I am also entering it into the challenge at The Paper Variety. The paper is from the Sugared stack at Basic Grey and the sticker was a clear one that I had sitting around, I backed the sticker with the same paper I used to line the card, and added some white ribbon and a bow and POW! an awesome card was born... :) Have a beautiful day.
Card Positioning Systems. And since her decorator and coordinator both had unexpected emergencies, I also get to play wedding planner! I am so excited, I love weddings! The paper came from the the DCWV I think its Creme and Black?? The sentiment is a rub-on from my stash. I always keep wedding cards simple and sweet, the occasion is more than enough, you don't even have to try to be fabulous,

And so I made this card to give to my friend, whom I do not tell often enough just how important she is. My card was made using basic grey's hang 10 paper, and I embossed the yellow part with a tim holtz brickish pattern (I never know what my embossing patterns are called, the names seem to hide from me) I inked, twined and added a lovely stamp I found in the bargain bin at Michaels last week. Ta-Da :)

I made this birthday card for my brother, he turned 25 last week and is feeling absolutely ancient. I used Basic Grey Archaic collection, I did an A2 sized card, and covered all 4 sides. I am entering this in the tuesday sketch challenge over on the Peachy Keen blog.

MAG challenge, I just couldn't resist. Also, I figured I could say thanks to my sister, for dropping everything to do challenges with me anytime I needed to be distracted.
I made this card for the challenge over at cardpatterns.blogspot.com, My creative mojo seemed to abandon me for a while so I thought I'd better just pick a challenge and make it happen. I had so much fun once I got started, the paper is from the hippie chic stack, the stamp is from the dollar bin and the stickers came from my stash. It was so good to be crafting again!
