A Wedding Card

I love weddings...really what girl doesnt!  I always dreamed of a big my dreams it resembled the wedding from Steel of my fave movies.  However, when I was married the first time, he wanted a small wedding....and it was.   Just me, him and his parents...sadly the marriage did not work out.  But I still love weddings and still believe in marriage. 

One of Simon Says Challeng Blog design team members is getting married....Domi from Germany!  Congrats Domi....and Uli, her childhood sweetheart on May 15th.  Therefore, SSCB was having a challenge with some wonderful wedding candy.....yummy!  Domi's Wedding Card Challenge, was to create and mail her a wedding card.  I have put my card in the mail to her as well as posting on here, as requested for this challenge, I enjoyed making the card and getting to send it.  I pray Domi and Uli have a blessed union!  I combined this challenge with another challenge from The Play Date Cafe.  PDC challenge was to use the colors, pink, black, gray and white.

SSIC Weekly Challenge #38

Ok this weeks Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge was a good one for me.  A color challenge! We were to use any shade of brown, blue and white.  And I have been asked to send cards out to New Members and Visitors of our Family Life Group.  I feel honored, and blessed to take this task on.  Of course, I don't really consider it a task.  I love meeting new people, and sharing the word of God.  And giving away my cards is a bonus!  This is the card I made and it's going to our visitor, that came to our last meeting. 

My Fave a Child

My fave color growing up was from what I am told, that's all I would wear.  My mother and father both tried to dress me in other colors and I would get upset.  Everything I had was red, just about.  My Aunt Donna made me a crocheted doll on year and it was red.  I loved that doll!  Then when I turned 13, I changed to step mother did not like purple...and my daddy's remark...."as long as it's not red, I am good with it"...LOL  Now my fave color is pink, but I still go to you can tell by my blog.  That was in honor of my dad and the Razorbacks.

OWH  had a color challenge last week, to create a card using your fave color.  And this is the card I came up with.  Now the layout I seen on another card,  the lady bug was cut out using my Cricut. And the sentiment is a CTMH stamp.  This card is going to a friend in Florida, her granddaughters bedroom is in ladybugs.

OWH & SCS Challenges

Well I hope everyone had a great weekend, and for all the mothers, I hope you had a special day!  I was in the bed with a headache till noon on Sunday.  Then I got up, watch 3 episodes of Army Wives..I love that show.  And then proceeded to make 6 cards, and enjoyed my Sunday.  This first card was for a couple of challenges,  OWH sketch challenge #16 and Secret Crafter Saturday #82.  The SCS challenge was to use 3 bellies, 2 papers and 1 image....

Here is the Sketch from OWH

And here is my result for both challenges

Papers, flowers, brads and stamp are from CTMH
The butterfly is cute and embossed by my Cuddlebug

This card is going to someone who is feeling a little down, I hope this cheers them up.

OWH Sketch Challenge #15

This is a site I found and Love...this is a blog to create cards and send to our Troops for them to use to send to their loved ones. Now I just have to figure out how to get the cards sent. Now they do offer prizes for these challenges...but the prize for me is being able to share my craft with an American Hero.

Here is their sketch:

 And here is my take on the sketch:

The papers, ribbons, elements and stamp were all CTMH.  And I just now noticed the sentiment appropriate to send to our troops.  THANK YOU for all you do, protecting out country and fellow americans.

Little Paper Shop Sketchy Monday Challenge

Good Evening everyone or Good Day, depending on when you read this.  Hope everyone is having a great day.  I went to work today, feeling much better after yesterdays, day long headache.  Now, even though I stayed home I did find time to make a few cards.  It's like therapy for me, to create.  Gets my mind off of "Things" and aches.  So this was the sketch challenge design (that I made the above from)
I turned the layout on it's side, I wanted to change it up a little.  Had this new paper and wanted to use it.  And when I think of flowers I think of God's natural beauty, hence the sentiment.  I am starting to get a build up on if you know of any one I can send these cards too, let me know.  Enjoy as always!!!

Little Paper Shop Color Challenge

This is for the Little Paper Shop Color Challenge, LPSC65.  The colors to use were Banana, Lilac and White.  Now I was suppose to have this uploaded by May 2nd, but it was a busy weekend.  However, I still wanted to share my creation.  This is a Mothers Day card I made for Rob to give his mom, of course I made more, so he may choose a different one.  But this one turned out different then I thought it would.  Make sure to check out the LPS blog for the great artwork the DT created.

CCEE Stampers Sketch Challange

I stumbled onto another challenge over at CCEE Stampers, a group of stampers who are eager to cheer you on and have a weekly sketch challenge, every Thursday. So here is the sketch for challenge CCEE1016, (check out the other cards):

And here is what I came up with....

I have not added a sentiment yet, cause I am still not sure who is going to receive this.  I love the colors of this card.  And I am loving my Cuddlebug embossing folders.  I used my Cricut to cutout the flowers.  Thanks for looking!
