I have 5 cards to share for today--and the first card is not for any challenge at all--just something I felt like making (crazy, right?). I was inspired by this layout I saw during a recent PTI blog hop. I used a bit of this incredibly gorgeous ribbon that Kim sent me and I have been hoarding ever since.
Next up is a card for this week's Simon Says Masculine/Father's day and A Blog Named Hero It's A Man's World. This is a very simple card I made to send to a good friend's brother who is about to undergo some pretty nasty treatment for cancer. The bottom section is patterned paper--I wish I could stamp that evenly.
Edited to add: I am also submitting this to the current challenge at Die Cut Divas.
I have another card for this week's ColourQ cQc #192 because I had to use the extra piece of plaid I stamped when I made this card. I used my newest stamp purchase--WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals.
My next card uses the sketch at this week's RetroSketches rs#67, and I am also submitting it to Simon Says Stamp and Show Brought to You by the Letter S because it is a Sympathy Card. I am also submitting this card to Cas-ual Fridays CFC104: Banners & Flags and Make it Monday #119: Flagged Borders because of the tiny flags I used at the bottom left.
My last card is for The Play Date Cafe PDCC185, Cas-ual Fridays CFC104: Banners & Flags, Freshly Made Sketches FMS89, and Make it Monday #119: Flagged Borders. I was inspired by this card of Kim's. I actually wanted to make the very same card as Kim, but forced myself to change it up a bit.
