3 Cards for Saturday

I have three cards to share today.  The first card is for this week's Lawnscaping Challenge #56:  Inspired By.   My card is inspired by a card made a week or so ago by my good friend Kim of Cupcakes, Cards and Kim.  As soon as I saw this card, I knew I wanted to make one just like it.  Kim used her @#$%$%$# machine (which is what I call Lucy, her Silhouette) to cut this awesome girl on bike silhouette, and she was kind enough to send one to me for my card.

Kim's Inspirational Card

Here is my card.  I will be sending this card to one of my neices, who goes to college in a town where everyone rides bikes everywhere.  This girl, with bling on her wheels and in her hair, is biking her way over to her sorority, KKG.

I decided to play with WPlus9 Monday Mood Board #9 for the first time this week.  Wow--talk about a difficult challenge--I think that sketch challenges are easiest for me, and inspirational photos are the hardest.  I was inspired by the colors, the textures, the stitching, and the flower with a button center.  Also, I wanted to use my new Quilt Prints stamp.  I am also entering this card into the birthday bash challenge at CAS-ual Fridays.

My last card is for this week's Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab.  I was inspired by the coffee theme, and the colors.

  1. Kappa Kappa Gamma was one of the "best" sororities on campus at University of Illinois ... your niece will love this one (is it the niece going to Michigan?!) And, I'm totally opposite of you ... sketches are the hardest type of challenge for me! That quilt stamp is pretty neat. How fun to play with! Another great set of cards : )

  2. Forgive my manners ... thanks for joining the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge again this week!

  3. Lovely set of cards. The image of the girl on the bike is darling. I think it will be perfect for your neice.
