My Crafty Weekend


Hello and happy Sunday.  What is the best thing to do when you are up crazy early with jet lag?  Make cards, of course!!

First up is a CAS birthday card that I am entering at Color Throwdown #557 and Addicted to Stamps and More #355.







I am entering this next card at Just Add Ink #471 where I was inspired by the yarn colors to do some color blocking with my new Altenew Layered Cityscape dies.  I am also entering this at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge of Clean and Simple.






My next card is for the challenge at A Blog Named Hero August:  Stretch Your Stamps.  I used a bookcase background stamp and cut it to use it as a frame.  I am also entering this card at AAA Birthdays #4:  For the Boys.






Time for some fall fun with the mice on my next card, where I have used an interpretation of the sketch at MFT Sketch Challenge #451, and rotated the sketch 90 degrees.




I stamped some brightly colored baby birds from Paper Smooches up the side of my next card, and I am entering it at the Paper Smooches August challenge and AAA Cards #147: Along the Edge.






And finally, a card inspired by all the laundry I did this week, after returning from vacation.  I am entering it at Lawn Fanatics #59:  Something See-Through, where I used their suggestion and used vellum on my washing machine, and the sketch at The Paper Players #496.






That's it for me today.  I had a wonderful vacation, but it is good to be back.


Thanks for Visiting
