MFT Sketch Challenge Get Well Wishes Card

 photo MFTSketchChallengeGetWellCard.jpg
I did a card today for MFT's Wednesday Stamp Club sketch challenge.  This is my first time to
play in one their challenges but the sketch looked like fun so I gave it a go.  :)  I used Pure Innocence Poppy Set for my image and sentiment.  The patterned paper is by Jillibean Soup (Grandma's Lima Bean Soup Collection).  I used my Sizzix eClips for the circle diecuts and cardstock by Diecuts With A View.  The flowers are by Prima Marketing, and the brad is one by My Min'd Eye.  I used Copic markers to color my image.  I just love the Pure Innocence stamps by My Favorite Things.  Fun to color (I called it coloring for grown-ups!!!)  :)  They also remind me of my sweet daughters when they were growing up (sniff, sniff).  :)  Hope your Monday has been a good one.  I've been busy in my crafty room.  I'm going to be a guest designer in July for a stamp company (more on that later) so I've been working on my creations for that.  It is starting to feel like summer here (HOT and humid) so I'm happy to stay in the air conditioning and craft.  :)

CFC103 Congratulations Card

Quick card for Casual Friday's Challenge of doing a congratulations card.  The sentiment stamp is by Hampton Art
and is inked with a Fireberry Colorbox Archival Dye ink pad by Clearsnap.  The cardstock and patterned cardstock is by Diecuts With A View.  I created the chevron border with a punch (by Family Treasures which tells you I have had it a LONG time.)  :)   The cranberry colored pearl brads are by My Mind's Eye. Thanks for stopping by.  I'm off shopping to find shorts for my youngest as she goes to band camp soon and NEEDS them.  :)

The {Stamps} of Life June Release

I always look forward to June because it means school is out and I can enjoy spending time with my daughters.  :)  Course the first of a month is always exciting too because of a new stamp release from  The {Stamps} of Life.  This month's release is called lemonade2drink and perfect for making some fun summer cards. I'm sharing a couple of cards I made with this set but for more inspiration go check out the lemonade2drink gallery.  :)

Hope you had a great week.  I made my first road trip to Dallas, Texas this week which took 10 hours of driving.  My youngest daughter and I were visiting my oldest daughter in her new apartment.  We had a blast but alas the week went by too quickly (here comes a "mom sniff sniff").  :)  Thanks for stopping by....let's kick off the summer with these lemonade2drink cards.  I don't know about you but I'm ready for some homemade lemonade!!!  :)
