More card fun!

We have are having a blast celebrating World Card Making Month at Sketch N Scrap!  Here are two more cards I made for our month long festivities there!
This one was made for my floral challenge which was to use flowers on your card in anyway shape or form!  Here I used a stamped flower from the Stampin Up set Flower Shoppe and punched it out with the coordinating punch! I love these Summer colors don't you?
Our last sketch of the month is up at Sketch N Scrap and it is card sketch by me:
Here is the card I created with it: 

You can see I do like my flowers! I love this new stamp set from Stampin Up called Choose Happiness!  It makes me happy!  I hope you will find time to check out all the beautiful cards the DT came up with this month!  Even though time is running out and we are almost to a new month, I hope you will find an hour or two to join us and stock up on cards for your stash or better yet maybe create a few Christmas cards for the upcoming holiday!  It's never to late to get a jump start on those!

Happy World Card Making Day!

Happy World Card Making Day friends!  I hope you will find lots of time to make some wonderful cards today, and maybe get started on those Christmas cards!  That is my plan for later tonight is to design my two Christmas cards I hope to send out this year (notice I said "hope" lol!), last year I didn't get Christmas cards sent out but I did get "New Year" cards sent, so better late then never right?  I am making a concerted effort this year to send out handmade cards to all my peeps, but to do so I am going to have to start now!  Sketch N Scrap is having a whole month long celebration to celebrate World Card Making Day and today Senior Design Team Member Kerry is kicking off the first challenge!  Kerry has challenged us to create a masculine themed card!  No small feat for me but I was happy to play along as I can always use good masculine cards in my stash!  Here is my card designed for this challenge:
Supplies Used: Cardstock: Stampin Up; Patterned Paper: Stampin Up; Ink: Stampin Up;
Sentiment stamp: Stampin Up; punches: Stampin Up (star & chevron); enamel dots: Stampin Up.
I hope you will find time to play along with us at Sketch N Scrap as we celebrate World Card Making Day all month long!!!  Each entry you link up gives you a chance to win an awesome scrapbooking kit from Scraptures Scrapbook Kit Club!  I can't wait to see your cards!

Sketch N Scrap #66

Welcome to October!  I'm so excited for Fall! I just hope it's not 90 degrees the day we have planned to go to the pumpkin patch!  I can't wait to feel the cool crisp Fall air.  I've already decorated my house for Fall, and that has made me at least "feel" cooler even if it is still 90+ degrees out today! So today is reveal day for our first sketch of the month at Sketch N Scrap!  Here is my sketch:
And here is my take on the sketch:

Supplies Used:  Pattern Paper: Jillibean Soup, washi tape: Queen & Co; card stock: Stampin
Up; die cuts: Jillibean Soup and My Mind's Eye; bling: Queen & Co; ticket: Jenni Bowlin

I had fun making this layout for a good friend using pictures I took a few years back of her and her daughter at an amusement park we took the kids to (ok, I know it took me a while to scrap these but hey, better late then never!)  I loved the bright colors in the pictures and felt that this fun line by Jillibean Soup really captured the colors well.  I know you will love what the DT did with this sketch!  I hope you find time to play along with us at Sketch N Scrap this month, we are celebrating World Card Making Day all month long with four extra challenges this month PLUS we have an awesome sponsor- Scraptures Kit Club!!  You won't want to miss out on all the fun, you can read all about it HERE!  You have until October 31st at 7 pm CST to link up your entries!  Enjoy your Fall friends!
