We had another round of winter precipitation, and a delayed opening at work. Normally I go in at 8:15…we didn’t have to be there until one!!! I used this opportunity to take on a few challenges.
I used the wonderful card sketch from Sketch ~ N ~ Scrap for the design layout of my card. I then used three different challenges for the embellishment of my card. Craftin Desert Divas is having a color challenge. It’s red, white, and pink so I used those for my paper colors. Cards Galore and Southern Girls are both having a bling challenge so that was very easy to combine. I also stamped the heart inside my hearts with Get Inky Stamps. I hope you love how it came out because I do.

I had some fun pictures of our son playing at the beach…well as much playing as a nine month old does, but I was stuck on how to use them. I then came across the Child’s Play Monopoly challenge, and the arrow on the go tile of the board hit me. I was going to use arrows since in the pictures he’s upside down and sideways!
I also wanted to use the new Inspired By challenge over at Sketch ~ N ~ Scrap. It was an awesome sketch!
I have several things I want to work at this year in my crafting. One is to make birthday cards, rather than buy, and another is to enter more sketch challenges. I saw this sketch over at Sketch~N~Scrap and fell in with it.
I started searching for my favorite winter scraps, and as I was sorting through I saw my few flower paper items and they called to me. My SIL’s birthday is next month and I thought they would be perfect for a card for her. I think it came out really cute, and I could see using this sketch again and again.
When I started this blog, less than a year ago, I never imagined how many cool websites, blogs, companies and people I’d get to work with.
The ScrapStuffz Etsy Store is sponsoring the October 15th challenge at Sketch~N~Scrap so we were given the chance to be “guest” designers if we had the time. How fun!
We were given this fabulous sketch to work with. There were so many different things you do with this even though it had some October themed items on it.
