Things that fly

So the theme of the December Inspirational Card Challenge at was Things that Fly. Here are two cards I made.

Unicorn Magical Birthday

I had a request for a 7th birthday party with the theme of unicorns and rainbows. She sent me this card as an ideal of what she liked. The original card has rainbow lines behind the unicorn that reminded me of the paint splatter stamps that TexasMomOf4 always used so I had to buy some! So I finally got them out after having the stamps over a year! I found the unicorn digital stamp at Huckleberry Hearts. I used sketch #2 from November Card Sketch Challenge. Original sketch found at Taylored Expressions.

I made a card like this out of different doodlebug paper to send to a couple friends. Never got them sent 😦 I thought I had posted the Friend card but couldn’t find it in my files. Well several ladies at my card sell requested it as a Birthday Card instead of a friend card. So this is the Birthday Version.

Cards inspired by stickers


So you have heard me talk about that I’m on a kick to use my stuff that I have in piles everywhere. One of the ladies at started a sticker challenge. I thought that would be great to play along as I have 2 sticker binders (remember those 12 + years ago!!) full of them. A lot of the stickers I have are for scrapbook pages and are to big for cards but I still have a several I could use up!

So I went into my sticker binder looking for stickers to make cards with and came across two packs that I think were from the $1 bin at Wal-mart but not positive. This is what I came up with:

Vellum Vase Sticker

I used this card ( as my inspiration.

I can’t remember where I saw that challenge a month or so ago but liked it so I used it for Product Category in the November Card Challenge @  Here is my take on the challenge:

Birthday Wishes -Butterfly


  1. Nov Card Challenge @ – Product Category – plaids or checks. I also used sketch in the upper left corner from sketch category.
  2. Crafting by Designs Challenge – Times 3. Must have 3 of something. I have 3 butterflies, 3 orange circles, 3 yellow circles, 3 pearls on each butterfly.
  3. Use Your Stuff Challenge #201 – Lots of Layers. It’s not a lot of layers to some but is to others!

My nurse friend asked me to make her co-workers birthday cards through out the year. There were 3 total in November and I already made one so here are the last two I made for this month.

Happy Birthday Butterflies


  1. Nov Card Challenge @ – Sketch Category – bottom right sketch…instead of the 3 little circles I used butterflies and moved them up a little.

A Blue Butterfly Birthday!


So my neighbor/friend’s birthday was the 11th and I knew she liked the color blue, Disney, nature and flowers. So I designed this card with that in mind….she liked it!!

Dear Friend Birthday


1) September Sketch Challenge @ – Bonus Sketch #6 – original a sketch from Scrapbook Generations

2) Tuesday Throwdown #213 – Butterflies and Bows

3) Love to Create Challenge #133 – Add some lines. Wasn’t a 100% sure what this meant but I figured lines in the paper, the paper in a line, stitching in a line would qualify…if not then let me know and I will withdraw.

4) Sparkles Monthly Challenge #60 – Things with Wings

5) Seize the Birthday – Create a birthday project with or without the topping. The topping was Sweet Treats. I did it without the topping.
