Wednesday Rewind Challenge #8


If you have not checked out this challenge it is a MUST! I love her cards and love sketch challenges so this was a win/win for me!

She will post a card she has done in the past and then she does a new version of it and so do we!

This month the card stumped me as I’m not a big ribbon user the way it was used on this card. But I was determined to play. So glad I did cause it made me think outside the “card” and I really like how this came out.

Go here to see the card that I “lifted”.

Here is my version:

Can you see the sketch but see how I made it mine! I love it!! Thank you Tarynne for the inspiration!


1) Made Fresh Daily Wednesday Rewind Challenge #8 (MFDWR8) –  On the 5th of every month I will post a card that I made from a couple months ago up to a couple years and I will lift the card. How do you play? Lift the card also! You can turn it, add to it, take away from it, as long as I can still see the original sketch in your card!

2) Alphabet Challenge Blog – M for Men Only. We would like to see projects for Men or with Men on them please.

Red Hot Mamma!


Today’s Clearly Inspired Challenge at Clearly iStamp is some like it HOT! It is a good thing we allow creative freedom (as long as it still fits the challenge somehow!) because the main thing that kept popping in my mind was “One Hot Mamma” I don’t know why but that is how this card was created! I looked for songs and found a lyrics that said, “you’re one hot mamma” but the rest of the song didn’t go with the classy look I ended up with so I left the card blank. Not sure what the card can be used for but I love how it turned out!! I even got to use my new Martha Stewart punch I bought because it was on sale and I hadn’t had a new punch in a long time! Oh and even used a couple of flowers out of the thousands I have sitting in pretty little jars!

I hope you get to play with us and show us your interpretation of HOT!

Wedding Cards


A lady at work requested a wedding card. She gave me an invitation so I could see the theme and colors (yellow, blue, grey). They are also outdoor people that love to hike. On the invitation they had a tree and Isaiah 61:3 and she said if it could have those that would be awesome. So my husband drew me a tree and this is what I came up with. I did two so she could pick which one she likes the best.

It is yellow and grey I promise!! The sun made it look funny.

I have always wanted to try to make this card fold, Zig Zag or Center Step Fold, so I decided I would do it! I look at two tutorials and figured it out Splitcoaststampers and High Hopes Stamps (I like the drawing she has).


1) Card Crafter’s Circle Challenge #29 – Under Construction! But we’re talking construction in the creation of your card… we would love to see your creations that are more than a single-fold or gate-fold card…. what’s your favorite? Easel Cards, Step Cards, Spinners, Sliders, Shaped cards, Waterfalls…. my goodness there are so many construction projects to create!
