Let's Celebrate You


Here is a card I made for three different challenges - the MFT sketch challenge shown below, a Ways to Use  It challenge (to use a favorite method) and a Hope You Can Cling To challenge - to make a card with a pink balloon.
The MFT sketch is shown here: 

I took a little liberty and put the horizontal strip behind the image.I really wanted to use this image to fit the pink balloon challenge so I made it work. Can you tell I just love polka dots? Her dress is so cute here. I added the green backing to give the elements a pop. As far as my favorite method - that would be coloring with copics, but followed closely by paper piecing.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Happy Birthday!


The clean and simple challenge at Splitcoast this week was to use pink and orange together. I LOVE this color combination so this was not a challenge! The challenge to me is always CAS. I spent a little time looking through Pinterest yesterday and am amazed at the CAS cards some of the card designers come up with. They are simply beautiful. It's a style I really like but find very difficult to nail.  I hope I captured a little of that today. This sure was a fun card to make.

Happy Mail


Here is a card I made for the color challenge at Splitcoast today, to use red, teal and light tan together. I also made this for a Hope You Can Cling To challenge to Keep Connected. That's the reason for this too cute image of a Pure Innocence sending some mail. Hope You Can Cling To is a month long of challenges in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. All of the cards made for this challenge are sent down to MD Anderson Cancer Center in TX for the patients and their families to enjoy. It is an honor for me to be part of sending much needed smiles.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Sweetie


Here is a card I made for the HYCCT challenge at SCS to make a card with a sweet treat. Well that is ice cream in this house! I used an ice cream cone from Taylored Expressions Sweet Treats and colored it with copics to match the coordinating paper. The sketch follows Karen's sketch this week at Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge:

Cause for Celebration



Still working on my cards for the Hope You Can Cling To cards for a cause going on at Splitcoast this month. The cards made for these challenges will be sent down to MD Anderson Cancer Center in TX. There families and friends can choose a card to send a smile to someone.


My card today is for a Warm Fuzzies challenge and for yesterday's sketch challenge. For the warm fuzzy, I chose to make a quilt background using warm colors from the color wheel. The Pure Innocence girl is all set for a celebration wearing a dress I paper pieced from the matching cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Happy Birthday!



Here is my card for the MFT sketch challenge today. I love these challenges but this week was a little tough for me. I love lots of layers with smaller panels but this was the opposite. Regardless, I'm happy with my birthday card. 




It's impossible not to love this little girl and she looks so cute in purple! I used a Die-namic plate to punch out the holes on the pink panel. My background of purple is embossed with large polka dots.

Bear Hug



Happy Monday! Here is a card I made for Lee's Hope You Can Cling To challenge at Splitcoast today, to make a card with a bear on it. I used a set from There She Goes called Beary Best. This image is just perfect - a bear hug for someone in need, and the sentiment is so appropriate. I followed the MOJO sketch for this week, shown below:
