Good Mornin! No challenge for this card... I just wanted to share it with y'all. I made this card for a friends son that will be turning 22. I wanted to have a little 'pop' so I chose to use the step fold with Dustin Pikes Monster Truck and sign. I used a couple pieces of a twig I had laying around to hold the sign up, put a few rips and tears to create the mountain look and distressed the edges with Studio G $1 ink pad.

3 Dog Gone Challenges...

Blech! My photos are so blurry these days! Anywhooo... I needed to make a card using the colors blue, green and orange for a challenge at my Cafemom group The Cute Critters Club but I needed a sketch to follow. I chose to use the sketch at Charisma Cardz and as I was looking I noticed that Our Creative Corners challenge this weeks was to make a card using a 'pet'. So I am entering this card into 3 challenges. I used another image that I won from the Digi Shack, cut out some circles for balloons, added some brads in the top corner and then tied it all together with some twine that I saved off of a birthday present.

Papertake Weekly Challenge #19

Ive been busy gettin my house cleaned as well as trying to get organized for my trip to Oregon on the 28th. I decided that I needed to do a card or 2 just so I can take a break from all the hub bub. I used this weeks sketch challenge at Papertake Weekly along with a digi stamp I won from The Digi Shack. I colored it with my Bic Markers and Crayola colored pencils. Sorry the pictures are a little blurry!

A Western Themed Get Well

Ive had this Bella image I received from my fellow Cafemommer, Cheryl, and I was never quite sure what to do with it. Over at Addicted to Bellas on Cafemom, we were given the challenge to use a Bella image on a tri shutter card. I had the shutter cut and ready to go but again... completely clueless. At Incy Wincy the theme this week is Western and it finally gave me a chance to use the Bella image Ive held on for so long. I decided to incorporate the 2 challenges together and this is my result. I picked up the patterned paper at Joanns on clearance, used the Equine digi images from Digi Shack and one image from clipart.
