Hi all, My nephew is graduating from High School so I wanted to get a jump start on his card to have ready. Don't want to be scrambling at the last minute! His school colors are Black and Orange otherwise I would NOT have picked this color scheme! Looks pretty nice IRL tho.
I used this week's mojo monday sketch and my new Flourishes graduation stamp set. I wanted a mature set instead of cutesy, even though I really like cutesy. ( no consistency here, actually still trying to find my style!)
I used a dictionary page that I got in a class last year during the NH papercrafts convention, the The sentiment is from the same set. Below is the inside with more stamps from the set.  Paper is PTI, the rest is self explanitory. Hope your having a nice weekend. Ta ta for now! Kim

Hi Blog friends, I was inspired by Mona's CR84FN color challenge this week. I always want to play, every week, but can't always fit it in to my schedule. So many challenges, so little time!
The Pure Innocence image is a digi from Heather Ellis' site.
I used a MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge sketch. I missed the deadline but that's ok, I really enjoyed making it. I used OA papers (I think) ____ Homemaker. A crocheted flower, flat back beads, BG button, PTI twine, Verve sentiment stamp.

Links to challenges are below. Hope to be back on the weekend with another post. :)

Happy Mother's Day

Hi, Hope all the mother's are having a good day. I know I am! No sketch or color challenge for this card. Just playing with some BG Nook & Pantry papers, a MSE rub on, a doily, buttons and a die cut apron! (Cricut FMK). BuBye!

Hi, how cute is Cheeky Howdy from The Greeting Farm? So cute. I bought this stamp especially for a card for my DD. She loves country music (cowgirl boots), she has reddish hair and often wears it in braids and the jean shorts are so her! Cara also loves the color orange and is a fan of cute-sy images. Does she sound like she's 10 years old? Nope, she'll be 27 next week! Sorry Cara. I hope she likes this card, I'm sure she will. It makes my day if she says aaaaawwwww when i give her a card. Happy Birthday, sweetie pie.
