I am writing this post at the end of a very busy and crafty weekend. It seemed like I was not doing much more than drive my kids around this weekend, but I must have been home a lot too, because I have quite a few cards to post today.
My first two cards are inspired by this design at Festive Friday #42 and they will be donated to this year's Caring Hearts card drive. I am hoping to make lots of Christmas cards in the next few months to donate to this worthy cause.
This first card is also inspired by the sketch at this week's CAS(E) this Sketch, and I rotated the sketch 90 degrees when I saw this card by Maureen in the gallery. I did a bunch of stamping and masking, and then decided to cut out and pop up the two candy circles in front. I was inspired by the red and white in the photo.
The pine cones and branches tied around the chairs inspired this next card.
I have another card for this week's ColourQ and it is going to the Splitcoaststampers Hope You Can Cling to challenge (Shine On HYCCT1401B).
This next card is going to the Splitcoaststampers Hope You Can Cling to challenge (Spoonful of Sugar HYCCT1407) and I followed a rotated version of this week's RetroSketches rs #136 challenge. Just a head's up--I had to cut this ice cream die 5 times to get all the different colors of ice cream, and I do hate to waste die cuts, so you will be seeing this line up 4 more times on different cards with the flavors mixed up.
My last card for today uses the colors from Colour Me Striking and I will enter it at Seize the Birthday Anything Goes and Simon Says Monday Falling in love with...(my new IO die). I made it a masculine birthday card because that is what I thought it looked like. I used a new die from Impression Obsession--I ran three colors through the die after cutting my card front, and it really was not that hard to fill in all the spaces with the different colors.
I am going to enter my 2nd, 3rd and 5th cards over at Virginia's View Challenge #8 Clean and Simple.
That's it for me today. Believe it or not, I have more cards, but I am going to post them later on in the week.
Thanks for Visiting
