on St. Patrick’s Day

bird, flower, sympathy, VLVSEP2011, wings, with sympathy
I needed a sympathy card for a co-worker who lost her mother-in-law suddenly. I used Sketch #5 from NSD Card Sketch Challenge….just stretched it out to fit a 5 x 7 card since the bird was so big. And instead of having tags I used the flower.
1) NSD Card Sketch Challenge – sketch #5 – original sketch Viva La Verve Sept week 2 2011.
2) May Inspirational Card Challenge – Bonus Category – have a bird on the card.

I had a request for a Mother’s Day Card with a chicken on it. So I dug out a retired Daydream Diane’s image and kept it pretty simple. The chicken is colored with the polka dot body so I just found similar paper in my stash that matched.
1) May Inspirational Card Challenge – Bonus Category – have a bird on your card.

Inside: YOU! That’s whooo-whooo! Happy Valentine’s Day
A lady at work requested 2 valentine cards one with an owl and one with a panda. So I used Owl my Love Digital image from Deedee’s Digis which is no longer in business (darn life gets in the way!). I used a sketch posted at Scrapbook.com in the Feb Card Sketch Challenge. Again everything came from the scrap drawers except for the brown card base.
1) Feb Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – sketch #4 (original sketch: Viva La Verve Sketches Aug 2015 week 2)
2) Feb Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Photo Inspirational – went with the valentine theme.
3) Digitally Sweet Challenges #147 – spots and stripes. Can only see a few spots but they are on the circle patterned paper.

Christmas/Winter, From the Heart Stamps

Here I am with only a few hours left to link up my creation for the From the Heart Stamps Digi of the Month Challenge.
I tried paper piecing the image so I wouldn’t have to ask my husband to color the image in but it just would not cooperate. I tore the head off one bird and smudge black ink on another so gave up! I went to my husband with the saddest wife eyes possible and asked him to color up the bird…I had managed to do the ornaments all by myself! Of course there is no shading or fancy coloring but it is colored! I found the sketch on Sketch Saturday and thought it would be perfect.
I saw someone had used the sentiment “Define Good” and thought that would be perfect for my Brother’s card so I made one of each!

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 @ Scrapbook.com. Here is my take on the challenge:
- Nov Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Product Category – plaids or checks. I also used sketch in the upper left corner from sketch category.
- 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.
- 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.
- Nov Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Sketch Category – bottom right sketch…instead of the 3 little circles I used butterflies and moved them up a little.
