Dynamic Duos #44

My favorite blues... island indigo and pool party... and a challenge to make a card with these two and a neutral (or two)...

So here it is, freshly off the press, ready for my husband's upcoming birthday (he's a sailor..)

I hope you like it as much as I do!

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch Challenge #30

New year... new mojo. I love this sweet sketch, and had a lot of fun personalizing it. I really love the little hearts dangling from the button! I hope you like it as much I do!

Well, I felt so welcomed at the Create with Connie and Mary challenge last week that I decided to enter another challenge this week!

This week's challenge is to create a card with lucky limeade, rich razzleberry and tangerine tango.

What lovely fall colours! As Canadian thanksgiving is a few weeks away, this theme sprang to mind. I hopped down to the basement crafting area, and came up with this layout. I love the simplicity of the geometric shapes against each other. And do I ever love brads - popping out some accent colour.

Thanks for looking, and for all the friends at Create with Connie and Mary - thanks for the inspiration and camaraderie! If you're ever on Vancouver Island... come on by!

Babies, babies, everywhere!

Four different babies have blessed the lives of friends this summer, and I've been meaning to do some baby themed cards. And I also wanted to enter some challenges, to get my mojo running. So... I'm entering Create with Connie and Mary, Simply Stampin' Challenge and Stampin Royalty with this card.

I love the Storybook Friends images... they remind me of images I would see in my mom's elementary school primers (which my Mormor preserved).

Thanks for looking!

First swap - kid's birthday card/slider card

For my first swap, I've made 8 of the same kid's birthday card. It's a slider card - you pull on the ribbon and the cloud comes out from behind the birdie. It says "a little birdie told me..." and "it's your birthday". It took me a while to come up with the design, and then it was rather fussy putting all the elements together. I'm really happy with the result though, and feel it would be ok for a boy or a girl and for many different ages/stages. Now... to put them in the mail and wait to see the cards that come back from the other stampers! Fun!!!
