So Much Love

Happy Sunday! It's time for a new challenge over at the Sunday Stamps blog and this week we have a fun color challenge for everyone!

For my card I decided to use a Stampin'Up! set called Love For You. I used 4 of the colors from the graphic, all of them being 2022-2024 InColors.

The inspiration for my layout came from the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge. The "for" and "you" are in place of the 2 circles along the main circle and they are popped up for added dimension.

Make sure and head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us! There is also still some time to play along with Freshly Made Sketches, their challenge closes at noon PST on 3/20.

Forever Friends

Good evening! I'm squeaking in with a card for the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge that ends at noon PST on Monday.

As soon as I saw the sketch I knew I wanted to use the set Sky High Friends from MFT. I just love these hot air balloon images, they can be used for any occasion. For this card I grabbed a sentiment from the MFT Little Love Notes set for a friendship theme, as I'm going to give the card to one of my very best friends.

When looking at the card I can see how the different elements fit into the sketch so I hope everyone else can too (except for the sentiment, I know that isn't part of the sketch).

Thanks for stopping by!

You Mean the World To Me

Hello there! Right now over at the Sunday Stamps blog we have a fun sketch challenge going on, brought to us by Amy.

I needed a card for a package I was sending out to my brand new grandson (born Dec.16th!). I've been wanting to use the SU set Happier Than Happy and this was the perfect reason to get it out!

I used the coordinating DSP and cut out the image area I wanted to use for the center of the card. I didn't want to waste any paper so the layer on the card base is where I cut the center panel from, and I just cut a green backing panel to cover up the missing center rectangle. The center is popped up for extra dimension.

One of my youngest sons best friends from high school is in the military in NY and he and his wife also just had their first child so although I didn't follow the sketch, I did make another super easy card to include in the box I sent them.

Make sure to head over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us, we'd love to see how you interpret this sketch!
