Easel Card For A Guy,,,

I finally managed to make my first Easel Card for a guy. I could not have done if it weren't for Sarah. I won the cute LOTV stamp on this card from her this month and it so happened to arrive in the mail today. I just had to go and make a card with it. I'm not much for brown but its basically the only paper I had that fit to some of the challenges that I wanted to enter. I definitely have to go do some shopping to get myself some paper for guy cards. I colored the image with copics and pencil crayons. The sentiment comes from Marion82. I just love her sentiments...she has so many to choose from. There were flowers on the side of the sentiments that I have to remove in order for it to not be girly. I wanted to add a charm that would fit to the occasion but the only one I found was a plain old Dollarama charm. I'll definitely have to do some shopping online to find some cheap ones...Any Suggestions???? Anyway enough rambling...Here is my card.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp Challenges - Stars and Stripes
  2. Stamp Something - Something Sentimental
  3. Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - Sketch
  4. Shannon's Sentiments - Birthdays
  5. Penny's Paper - Here Comes Summer (Fishing)

Oh...and before I go, head on over to Cheryl's blog and leave her some grand parenting advise on spoiling grand kids. She's got a surprise for one lucky commenter.

Pink, Pink And More Pink

Pink!!! Now that is a color that I wouldn't choose everyday, it would in fact be the last color I would pick. I might not like the color too much but I think this card turned out really nicely. I haven't crafted for a whole week and I finally took the time to make a card this afternoon. It took me 2 hours of hard core work to finish it. A while back I won some wonderful blog candy from Jacque and the flowers I used for making this card just so happens to come from her... I love them Jacque, Thank You. The papers again are from our local Dollarama, they have such beautiful 12x12 paper packs its hard to resist. The sketch I used for the card comes from Wild Orchid Challenges. They have such wonderful challenges and I decided it would be about time for me to enter one. I would like to enter the card into the current challenges:
  1. Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - PINK-a-Licious
  2. Wild Orchid Challenges - Moms Are Special Sketch
  3. Stamp Something Challenge Blog - Anything Goes

Yet Another Card...

Another Green Card. This one however didn't quite turn out how I wanted it to. I made it for an online crop challenge where the challenge was a recipe but I clearly went overboard with all the requirements. Not to sure if I like it but its not to bad all in all. I borrowed the stamp from a friend and its just adorable. The papers and ribbon I used are from a paper pack from the Dollarama. I won the butterfly charm in an online candy once.

I have entered this card into the current challenges:
  1. The Cheerful Stamp Pad - Little Girl With Curls
  2. Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog - Try Something New (New Stamp)
  3. Paper Cutz Challenges - Anything Goes
  4. Craft You Passion Challenges - Anything Goes
  5. Mami Doodles - Lets Get Girly
  6. Moving Along With The Times - Anything Goes
  7. Crafts 4 Eternity - Anything Goes
  8. By The Cute And Girly - Anything Goes
  9. Diva's By Design - Anything Goes

And Before I go I suggest you all head on over to Linda's Blog and check out the cool 200 Follower giveaway she's having. You can all get up to 3 entries each. It all end's May 29th so head on over now.
