Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #44

  We have been having some wild winter weather here on the wet coast!  We usually get snow a few times during the winter but the last week or so has seen several winter systems come thru bringing us snow, slush, rain, more slush, more snow, you get the picture!  I actually like snow but from having to travel to the mainland in a white slushy mess over the past few days even I am ready for spring! But today... it has turned back to sunny and all the snow is melting. In honour of "Spring cannot come fast enough!"  I made a pretty spring flower card using Sketch #44 from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge , the striped paper from the Ariana Packet and the super cute Hostess Rewards Stamp Set "Enjoy the Little Things"  (Ask me how you can be a Hostess and get this exclusive stamp set!).  To make the super cute "loopy dee do"  I used my Cricut Artbooking and the "Thinking of you" is from the Casual Expressions stamp set.  Ink colours used a

In a challenge kind of mood...

So I have been in a little creative funk the past several days and in trying to get some inspiration I have been looking at a ton of "challenge" blogs.  So for this blog post I am going see how many I can enter and hopefully get my groove back.   For this card I recreated a design I did a few weeks ago for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge using different paper and colours.  For this card I used Cotton Candy and Lagoon Inks and the striped paper is from the Skylark Paper Packet . I wanted a bright Birthday Card for a very bight girl.   Challenges I am entering: - Heart 2 Heart Challenges - Hearts Galor e This weeks theme is "Hearts" which you can interpret any way you like.  Now I don't officially have a "heart" on this card or do I?...  If you look at the flower petals I think you might see some hearts... - Seize the Birthday - Time For A Little Love .  This weeks theme is "Anything Goes Birthday" with a "Heart"

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #42

  This weeks challenge from AHSC allowed me to play with the new Skylark paper packet!  So beautiful! So spring!  We had snow yesterday followed by heavy fog and rain which has turned everything into a white soggy mess.  West Coast snow is rarely fluffy it is a slushy, soggy mess.  So I am more than happy to play in my craft room today with papers that are make me think of anything but the slushy, soggy mess I have to wade thru shortly to pick my child up from school. I love it when cards come together quickly and look (in my humble opinion) great!  I fully believe this is because Michelle and Darla of Atlantic Hearts provided us with such great sketches that have lots of room for individual interpretation. This weeks sketch was no exception. Products I used for this card are the new Skylark Paper , Lagoon and Kraft Cardstock , Sweet Leaf Ink , and the Hello Tweety Stamp Set (which I just realized is now retired).  I also used a piece of Sweet Leaf Ribbon and an antique coppe
