Lots of Cards

I had quite a crafty weekend, so I have a number of cards for different challenges.

I am making up for lost time with Lawnscaping.  I have my second card for this week's Lawnscaping Challenge #45:  Dust Em Off.  I used the sketch from this week's RetroSketches #37 for my card.  This was the first time I used Winter Fox, and also the first time I used that border stamp from Belinda's Borders.

My next card is for this week's Make it Monday #90:  Creating Focal Points with Stamps and Dies.  I modeled it after this card I made earlier in the week (that got a Facebook Shout Out!!).  I don't have Thanks All Ways, but made do with sentiments from Grunge Me and Big & Bold Wishes.

Here is a peek at the inside:

I used the colors from this week's Color Throwdown #217 for my next card, which was inspired by this card by Nicole Heady.   This card will be going to my nephew when he turns 8 in two  weeks. 

I wanted to play around a bit with my Happy Harlequin stamps and dies.  I used the colors from this week's Play Date Cafe PCDD157.   I would also like the thank the gals at the Play Date Cafe, for selecting this card of mine last week as one of the Fab Four--see my new sidebar badge.

Finally, I used two of the hundreds of die cut ornaments sent to me by my friend Suzanne to make this card, which will be sent to the Caring Hearts Drive.  Click here to learn more about this holiday card drive.
