Boy Congratulations

So my ex-boss asked me to make a baby boy card for one of his current employees. So this is one of 3 cards I made for him to choose from….he picked this one!

I’m sure I’m the only one that still HAS this paper! It was perfect for the sketch Karen used in the July Inspirational Card Challenge – Sketch Category. The patterned paper was punch in squares to get the images.

I didn’t get to play in time for the NSD Sketch Challenge but I was inspired by sketch #4 (original was from zrobysama.com.ua). I found these papers in my scrap drawers and thought the circle images would work in place of the flowers. I think it turned out pretty good!

Graduation

I needed a card for a friend who graduated college while working full time and raising a family. Very proud of him! So I used the sketch from the card challenge and made this whole card out of scraps!! Now that I’m looking at it I should of tilted the the top circle on the bottom so it would look like the hat was falling…oh well will do if I make another card! I got to use a brand new embossing template that I got a couple months ago when they were on sale at JoAnns.

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

I then got to play with Mustache SVG file. There is also a digital image Mustache Mish Mash if you would rather have it as an image.  I saw the hat/heart/mustache ideal on the internet and liked it. Then I saw the saying on a different site and liked it. So I decided to combine the two into my own unique card! I used the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch #145 as my inspiration.

Mustache - love you

Part 2 of the Calendar Challenge

8 Comments

The first 3 weeks of the challenge is done and so far I have kept up! Just barely but I managed. Now it is time for Part 2 of the challenge where you have another 3 weeks to make 3 calendar pages!! Even if you didn’t get the first 3 done jump right in and you will be closer to having a Calendar done which is the perfect Christmas Gift.

For my inspiration I used Sketch #36 from Sketch -N- Scrap. What is so awesome about this site is that it has BOTH card and scrapbook sketches. The best of both worlds all in one place!!

We don’t do a lot for St. Patrick’s Day so didn’t want to use that for March. But since we have a couple birthdays I thought that would be a good theme for March. I love how you can customize the calendar to fit what you do each month!
My days were not cooperating so I will put them on later when I have more time.
I hope you will come play in the Calendar Challenge at Clearly iStamp Blog.
CHALLENGES:
1) Simply Create Too Challenge #42 – Anything but a card.
SUPPLIES:
