To Mom

Mother's day just recently passed, and i would like to share the card that I made for my mom.

I entered it to the Crazy 4 Challenges 235 sing the center column that contains stripes, fiber, and sentiment.
It will also be submitted to the JUGS240 challenge that required me to use the "kissing technique" which I used on the flower stamp.

Birthday Wishes

I made a new birthday card to enter into Papertrey's anniversary contest. I submitted it to the color and sketch challenge that you will find here.
The lines are sponged, and the stamp is from text-styles think big #7. I hope you enjoy my card!


Here is the color recipe and sketch that I chose to use:

Organized chaos

Hello!  My newest card is chaotic, yet organized.  I used seven different black and white patterned papers (although one is hidden) to be cut into triangles that fit together to make an explosion sort of effect.  The base for the card is just a solid gray.  The "happy birthday" stamp that i used was from "Make a Wish Additions"
The first of two challenges that I am entering this in is the ColourQ challenge (#222) which requires me to follow a certain color scheme.
The second challenge is Retro Sketches (#95) which is where I got this sketch from.
I hope you enjoyed!

and the second is Dynamic Duos (challenge #82) which is a color challenge.

Thanks, Teacher

Hey, everyone!  Because school has started once again, I decided to make a new card that is inspired by school!  All stamps are from Papertrey Ink stamp set called School Time.


 I will be entering three challenges with this card.  The first one that I absolutely could not resist is Just Us Girls (#203) because it is a photo inspiration.
 The second one is Retro Sketches (#78) which I thought couldn't go better with the picture.

And finally, I am entering The Simon Says kids challenge again.  I hope you enjoyed!

Three in One

Happy Saturday, everyone!  I decided to combine three different card making challenges into one card.  I hope you like it!



One of the challenges that I've entered is "Less is More" (#129), which was to include a handmade flower in your card.

"Feel Better" Card

Hey everybody!  Here's a new card that I made for a card making challenge on Freshly Made Sketches (#95).  This is my first time entering a challenge.





  I was inspired by a color challenge that was already expired from Dynamic Duos.

Duct Tape Wallets!

Hey, everyone! So one of my favorite crafting activities to do is to make handmade duct tape wallets. The idea was introduced to me by my cousin, Maddie, another crafty chick. Soon enough, friends at school began asking me if I could make them wallets out of duct tape. So that's where the hobby started.












My favorite of these that I've made is the third wallet shown, with the teal lining and white bow.  
All of my classmate-costumers have loved their new wallets, and I've loved making them.  Hope you like them, too:)
