Double Layout


Colorful Creations has some great challenges.  This is the last one I did, it is a double layout using two pp, three different flowers.
I love how these turn out but when I put them in the album, I switched them around and like it much better.

I'm looking for some other great challenge sites, this is were I get my inspiration, lol.  Leave me a link if you do a good one!

CAS= Clean and Simple

OWH Stars and Stamps is having a blog skip today and I love the concept!!!!
What's CAS stand for? Clean and simple! That's not nearly as easy to achieve as it might seem. A single sticker or stamp on skimpy cardstock may come across as done too fast; the design and the quality of the materials - these can make the difference! As was said on Thursday's OWHtv, quoting Kate..."CAS is the little black dress of stamping!"

Here is my take on a CAS card and I plan on doing more of them.  

This appeals to me more than some of those foo-foo cards.  You know, the ones where people take out stock on Prima Flowers and pearls, lol!  Thanks for the inspiration OWH!!!

CSDivas' Thursday Card post

This is my Thursday card post for Creative Scrapbooking Divas.  Everyday there is a different post/project you can check out and every week we have a great challenge for you.

Ever have "card block"?  You know, where you sit down, want to make a card for someone and just stare at you supplies and wonder what in the world to do.  That has been me all month, lol.  UNTIL!!!! recently!  I found a wonderful tool to help me with my inspiration and just have to share it with you!

Operation Write Home is a great site where homemade cards are sent over seas to service men and women.  They in return fill out the card and sent it back home to loved ones.  How cool is it for a little one to get a Elmo birthday card from mommy or daddy in the mail?!?!?   I just love this site and have sent out cards but they have a wonderful link with sketches made by OWH cardmakers.  They do sketches all the time and you can find them all in one place.

Here are a couple of cards I made recently using OWH sketches...

You can find the sketch collection HERE!!!

We would love to see some card inspiration.  My mini challenge for you is to create a card using one of the sketches and post the link in the comments.  Don't forget to post the sketch that you used too! This is a great way to help spread the word about OWH!

PS: Here are the Fall deadlines to ship out.

Sept 16 - Halloween
Sept 30 - Thanksgiving
Oct 31 - Christmas
Nov 30 - AnyHero Christmas

CSDiva Sunday Challenge

This weeks challenge is brought to you by DT Yolie:
Your challenge is to create a layout, one page or two, or a card using any of these colors:OrangeBlue or Green, these must be your only colors.  You can use all three or just two, if you like, you may even do a monochramatic project
Here is my take on the challenge...
I am soooo behind on my layouts, I need challenges to inspire me.  At least give me a starting point.  This is my son Sam.  I'm sad to say, he is 4 now... that's how far behind I am, lol.
Stop by CSDivas and check out Yolie's creation.  Its just beautiful!

Challenge: Faithbooking - Freedom!!


This week's challenge at CSDivas is a Faithbooking one!  DT Vanessa challenges us to faithbook about Freedom and what it mean to us!  Here is the page that I did...
These are the 2 scriptures that I chose.  My freedom is a blessing on grace and mercy!

Galatians 3:22
But the Scriptures declare that we are all prisoners of sin, so we receive God’s promise of freedom only by believing in Jesus Christ. 
Galatians 4:5 
God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children.
