A lady at work asked for a 30th birthday card for her daughter that likes green and pink. So this is what I came up with….hope she likes one of them!

30th birthday

Challenge:

1) Jan Card Challenge @ scrapbook.com – Sketch Category – she found the sketch on pinterest.

Does anyone even remember this paper by EK Success! Totally dating myself bringing out this stash!!

The bottom card I used the sketch from Day 363 @ 365 Cards Challenge for my inspiration. The challenge site is closing after 4 years which I’m sad to see it go since it was one of the first ones on blog land that I ever played in.

All you need is love….

and a few Doodle Pantry stamps then you will be ready for Valentine’s Day!! Which is not far away since it is January 1, 2014!!! Happy New Year!!

Today is first Doodle Pantry release of 2014!! I got to work with 2 digital image sets this month.

First up is Kissy Lips. I made two cards that are similar because I couldn’t decide what I liked better!

Kissy LipsPucker Up

I used MOJO Monday 325 sketch for my inspiration. I also decided to to make them shiny by putting Glossy Accents on them. They went from dull to shiny just like real lips when you add gloss or lipstick to them!

The second card I made used an SVG file – Hearts Galore and a re-release of Loving Critters Digital Image (use to be a Clearly Digi Stamp). The cool thing about the Heart Galore SVG file is that it also come with JPEG and PNG images too. And to make it even sweeter Laurie is offering Free with purchase between Jan 1-9th.

Just For Ewe

Inside: Happy Valentine’s Day!

This is the second card I made using the sketch below. This time I stayed pretty true to the sketch.

I am really happy with this card!! I finally made a CAS card that I like! I don’t do CAS and it is usually hard for me but this one came together pretty easily. I also love that it was inspired by Sketch #4 at the September Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com. Instead of 5 small hexagons I made one big one. I wanted to do this sketch but it had me stumped for a bit….but not any longer! I was also inspired by Ceal’s card @ Simply Beautiful Blog and took the sentiment from it.  I also went with the simple scheme to follow challenge #208 at ColourQ Blog – black, white and a splash of one color.

But most importantly I made this card for my niece to encourage her to read books. She is struggling in reading so I plan on sending this to her to help her along.

Challenges:

1) Catch the Bug Challenge – September photo challenge – school theme

2) A Gem of a Challenge #99 – use black on your card

3) Day 270 @ 365 Cards – Keep it Simple. Use only 3 items on your card – any three items, not including the sentiment.

4) Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge – Anything Goes (as long as it is for a kid)

5) September Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Photo inspiration category
