That was a great idea....I have the same problems. Except, when I have specific cards I need to make and I know the colors won't work for what I'm trying to do!
Thanks for the explanation. Whomever came up with it was very smart....it does help us all.

Josie, your sketch 1 card turned out wonderful! Love how you weaved the ribbon through the center!

Here is my sketch 1 card that went sort of South, lol! I started making it an easel card, hence everything in the small center, but decided I didn't want to at the last minute!

Hi Ladies,
Tomorrow is my daughter's Wedding Anniversary and I used sketch #3 for their card. Now, I'm not even going to try to tell you how many years they have been married, since I can't even keep track of my own!Laugh(sssh..I'm guessing 22 yrs)!

My Sketch Card #3:
Printed Paper - Michael's Single Sheet rack
Heart Border - MS punch
Embossing - Darice "Flower Swirl" folder
Flower - A metal frame with fabric and bling embellishment
Leaves - Sizzix "Leaves w/Branches" die cut
Sentiment - CTMH acyrilic stamp from the "Life is Tweet" collection
Added diamond shap gems andsilver Brocade ribbon.

BingoLady, I don't think I have ever seen paper like that as well! It's pretty neat looking! So colorful!

Britishgirl, I love the clean, simplicity of your card, and how the image is the main focus! Love that image! Lovely card!

TurtleBug, lovely Anniversary card for your daughter!

I really do think everyone has really pulled off some really beautiful cards this week so far!

I had to laugh....

I can always remember how long I've been married because of the year we we're married. 1980
We bought our first car in March, got married in April and the volcano blew in May. (Mount St. Helens)

Yup I just start at 80->90 (10), 90->00 (20), 00->10 (30), then count up from there. lol

It is hard to believe I'm old enough to be married (nearly) 33 years.

I hope to get into my craftroom today to make some cards.
(I'm behind on my blog, too. Double UGH!)

Later gator,

Turtlebug – wow! Gorgeous baby cards and great work with the eyelets. That’s a wonderful card for your DGS in the ad colours – love the papers! It sounds like a good opportunity for him! As for your paper cracking, I have misted vellum with water and it helps. For glossy paper, I tend to sand it more and then leave it to show more white or I will ink it. Great interpretation of Sketch #3 - love the colour combination and pretty flower accents! Wow, wow! Love your daughter’s anniversary card! Everything is just perfect!

Sandy – Cute card for Sketch #3 – wonderful image as usual and great photo corners! Glad to see you’re still making your Christmas cards – great plaid ribbon and snowflake accent!

Sue – Nice bright and glittery card! I do recognize those DCWV papers!

BingoLady – Pretty background paper and a great versatile card!

Britishgirl – that’s a wonderful Easter card and great Sketch #3. Soft yellows and blue work well with the image!

Here is my Sketch #3 card - flipped. I used Elegant Edges for the purple background, CM Holiday Cards and Tags for the yellow frame and MS Seasonal Cake for the bunny and frames. I fussy cut the green for the grass and used flocking powder on the bunny. Found pearls in my stash that look egg-shaped.

I hate to not make a reply to ALL the cards I've seen here this week, but I just HAVE to comment on these last few.......by Turtlebug and Gisele!!! OMG. These colors and your cards are just amazing AND beautiful. I love them. Love the ribbon skirt on the dress, Gisele!

To be in AWE doesn't seem to capture the feelings I get when I see ALL the beautiful ideas/creations/colors used/projects I see on all our forums. It's much more than AWE and I don't know a word more than AWE!!! LOL.

Keep on keepin'......EVERYONE!

Afternoon ladies. Sorry I have been missing in action the last few weeks...life and kids in the way. We were given the green light to go house hunting but now the bank is kind of back pedaling so we are on hold again...frustrating.

I have hit and miss on the challenges the last few weeks. Hopefully you don't mind but I am just going to post all of them here.

This week: Was kind of stumped on sketch #1...the triangle in the background was throwing me way off. I decided to go with a "male" card...I'll decide on a sentiment later.

Cartridge: Life's A Beach.

Sketch #2...sorry no cricut or cuttlebug.


Previous week: Sketch #1...thank you to assistant bball coach for daughter

Cartridge: Boys Will Be Boys - bball
George - star
Cuttlebug: Dots.

Two weeks ago: Color challange and one of the sketches ??.

Here is my card using Sandy's #1 sketch. I also entered it over on the blog hop at www.mypapercrafting.com.

It has been Mothers Day over here today and I have had a little time to myself (not as much as I had hoped but hay never mind) my son washed the dishes after lunch and he and my hubby will do the Sunday tea (that should be good for a laugh) No they are both getting to be quite good now.
Hope you are all having a good day too.

Sue

Happy Mother's Day to those who are celebrating it today. Hope you all have a wonderful day.

I'm going to try and post the notes I've been writing for the last several days.

Nana Donna....That's a lovely baby card and in one of my favorite color combos. The ribbon is perfect for the card as is the flower.

Turtlebug...I love both the baby cards you made. I didn't notice the "extra" spokes until you mentioned it. LOL. The eyelets look great on the tags. They are something that I never think to use even though I have a bunch of them. A great Ad Color card. Your grandson will love it. I like how you used the online image. The #1 sketch card is is also very nice and I like what you did with the ribbon. The #3 sketch for you daughter is beautiful. Pretty paper, flower and the MS punch is perfect for the card.

Sandy....the card is adorable and I like the corner stickers you used. Very nice Christmas card too. It's great that you are keeping up with making them. Sketch #3 is so darn cute...cute image, lovely colors and the butterflies are beautiful. Did you use "flower soft" on the diaper?

Raquel....That was interesting what you suggested about using a thinner stack when embossing so the paper doesn't crack. I usually try to use paper that doesn't have white inside unless I'm going to distress it. I'll remember this if I run into the problem. Hope your packing is going well.

Bingo Lady....Wow, your #2 sketch is just wonderful. I love the BG paper and all the bright colors. Very nice job with the embossing too.

Lisa W.....You did 4 very unique cards. Thanks for posting them.

British Girl....a very nice and colorful #3 card and the image is just adorable.

Across the Pond....Your card for sketch #1 came out great. Another adorable image, great paper and colors, embossing, and the stitching around the card works great.

I'm in the middle of a major "redo" of my craft room after I realized that the results I wanted won't be obtainable unless I used drastic measures. LOL

Lisa – TFS your set of cards! It’s always nice to have cards for all kinds of occasions. The flip flops one is my favourite!

Sue – A happy belated Mother’s Day! Hope your tea turned out! Love your Easter card – great choice of papers and wonderful image.


Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
