You ever have those cards or challenges you are determined to do but man do they make you work for it!! Well that is what happened when I decided to make the 2 sketches offered at Feeling Sketchy for their Month Long National Scrapbook Day Challenge. I knew these sketches would get me out of my comfort zone and I wanted a little challenge!! Be careful what you ask for!! I thought I would have a hard time with the circles but that one came together in no time. Now the other sketch gave me a run for my money!! After several tries I finally came up with something I liked!

Okay I have made 2 cards last week for Deedee’s Digis Blog and haven’t had time to post them here so I’m going to so I’m caught up.

Rose Birthday

Made it for the Tuesday Morning Sketches #300 that Deedee’s Digis sponsored.

SUPPLIES:

Heartfelt Sympathy

This one was made for the Crafting by Design Challenge which was to use flowers. I had to make a sympathy card for the family of one of my “regulars” in my craft class at the retirement home. When I was praying about making the card these were the flowers I felt led to put on the card. They are bright and beautiful just like she was.

I used Deconstructed Sketch #197 as my inspiration.

Flowers for Mom

HappyMothersDa-emaily

I made this card as a sample for Outlawz Greeting Challenge – Mother’s Day Card with one flower. When I saw the bonus sketch in the May’s Card Sketch Challenge I thought the Blooming Blessings Digi from Deedee’s Digis would be perfect. It wasn’t coming together because I was trying to do the blocks in different colors so I went back and looked at Karen’s (TexasMomof4) sample. I decided I would try that look with the white background and I like it. A little more tweaking here and there and I finally came out with a card I like! The swirls are from the Cricut Calligraphy Collection cartridge. I printed the swirls and then cut them in half and then stuck the two halves together to get the look I wanted. I think I will add yellow stickles in the middle of the flowers to give it a little sparkle.

CHALLENGES:
1) May Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Bonus Sketch. The original sketch is Card Sketch #2 from Creatively Yours.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Blooming Blessings from Deedee’s Digis
Cardstock: Bazzill

Perseverance

Deedee’s Digis is sponsoring Path of Positivity Challenge which is a new challenge for me. It is a different type of challenge as they give you a word and then you create a project that shows/tells what that means. You really need to check out the blog and read how and why the challenge blog works. This month the theme is Perseverance.

Inspire Graduation

Last week a friend of mine contacted me and asked me to make her daughter’s college graduation card for her. I said yes not only because she is my friend but because her daughter graduated. About a year ago my friend’s daughter was thinking about quitting school because she had a full time job during the summer and liked having that income. Also because she had moved to an apartment during the summer and liked the freedom. She was being influenced by the world and world views and was losing focus of the big picture. The good thing is that God never looses focus and he MAKES the big picture so my friend and I prayed for her daughter. Her daughter persevered and is graduating this Sunday. I know momma is proud of her. My friend sent me this quote and asked that it be on the card. She said her daughters favorite colors were purple and yellow so this is what I came up with. I made that word art based on the one she gave me and just made it two different shades of purple. I used a sketch from blueprints 14 at My Favorite Things.

CHALLENGES:

1) May Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Sketch #2 was a group of four from blueprints 14 at My Favorite Things.

2) Path of Positivity Challenge #26 – Perseverance
