Needed a Mother’s Day card with birds and saw this image in the Photoplay Moments in Time collection and thought it was perfect. I used an old Stella Says Sketch #601.

I’m so excited about this card. I saw the challenge at Scrapbook Blessings Club to make a Valentine/Love card using Christmas Stash and didn’t think much of it since I had all my Valentine cards done. Well while I was working on a Christmas card using old stash I saw the perfect stickers that looked nothing like Christmas but were all about Love! I had also been wanting to do sketch #3 at the Cardmakers Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com but the inspiration hadn’t come to me till now. So not only did I use old old old supplies I was challenged and came up with a cute card. Love when that happens!! Haven’t been able to just play like that for a long time.

Final Batch of Mothers Day Cards

So this week I made the last of the Mother’s Day Cards that were needed for the people at work.

Flamingo Mothers  Day

INSIDE: To the best Nana anyone could ever wish for! Happy Mother’s Day

I have a standing order for a guy at work to make a Flamingo card for his Grandma on Christmas and Mother’s Day. Here is this years Flamingo Best Nana anyone could ever wish for card!!

CHALLENGES:
1) May Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Sketch 3 – original sketch is from The sweet Stop sketchChallenge Blog #144

Butterflies

One of the guys at work wanted a Mother’s Day card with a Rainbow theme since his mother loves rainbows. This card was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest – http://iminhaven.blogspot.com/2012/01/color-my-world.html I didn’t have a flower die or punch that would work for this so a trip to Michael’s was the solution. I bought a Martha Stewart anywhere punch of a butterfly. It was too big to do the original design so this is what I came up with.

I did a 2nd card and messed up on the punching so I put the sentiment on the outside. Which do you like better?? Please let me know as I want to make more and I can’t decide which one to do.

CHALLENGES:
1) May Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorites Category – Recreate a card or sketch you’ve saved in your favorites either on this site, a blog, or Pinterest.

I’m hosting a Calendar Challenge at Clearly iStamp Blog.

The challenge is to make 3 calendar pages in 3 weeks so by September you will have a whole calendar completed! Just perfect for a Christmas gift. Having the challenge is also motivating me because if you join in then I have to continue to complete mine and not slack off. We finished the first 3 weeks today and last night I finished my other 2 pages, February and March. I will post March tomorrow once I get permission from the sketch site I used as inspiration. So here is February:
