I can't believe I managed to complete EVERY challenge at 365 Cards this week!!! Today's final challenge at 365 Cards was "Front & Center". We had to keep every element of the card in the center, leaving lots of white space around the edge. Here is what I came up with:
Hot Off The Press papers and tag
Dashes Dots & Checks ribbon
Thanks for popping by for a peak at my cards this week :)
Day 89 & 2S4U Bonus Sketch: This is the bonus sketch that was provided by one of the DT members at 2S4U. I also followed the Day 89 challenge at 365 Cards. Their challenge was Imagine This: Watermelon. Watermelon is the inspiration and we had to either use the colour or an actual image of a watermelon on our card. I chose to do a bit of both.
Sheer Creations ribbon, CTMH inks, "Special Friendship" stamp set for inside sentiment
365 Cards Day 90 & Kazan's Sketch #27
I was really excited that I was able to use another card for a double challenge this week....yippee! Using the sketch that Kazan designed for us this week over at 2 Sketches 4 You, I then followed the colour challenge over at 365 Cards. The challenge there was "I See Your 'Two' Colours and we had to design a card using only 2 colours. There were a lot of entries for this week, so pop over to both of these blogs and check them out. There is a link on my sidebar that will take you there in a blink.
Wow, this week has been a wee bit busy around my house. The good part is that the weather outside has been mostly fantastic and I was even able to enjoy some of it. In this post, I have 3 cards to upload for this week's challenges over at 365 Cards. I have fallen way behind this week and I still have 3 more cards to tell you about after these ones, but those will have to wait till later. On to Monday's challenge at 365. Day 86 - Grape Fun The challenge: use purple as the primary colour and incorporate atleast 5 circles on the card. This is what I came up with.
Hot Off The Press purple paper
Crafts ribbon & DMC floss
Maya Roads chipboard tree
Creative Memories pen
CTMH buttons & inks
Unknown cardstock, green paper & dragonfly
Day 87 - The "Eyes" Have It
This challenge was to use the word "eye" somewhere on your card. After a ton of thinking, I decided to look on the computer under clip art images for a colouring book style picture of a cyclops. When I came across this image of Cyclops from the X-men, I knew I had found my theme for this challenge.
CTMH inks & watercolour pencils
Crafts Birthday Cake charm
Stikopotamus sticker letters
"Cyclops" X-Men picture from Computer
Unknown cardstock & ribbon
Day 88 - Quite A Pair
Today's challenge was to "design an anniversary or engagement card; no wedding cards." For this challenge, I decided to emboss plain navy blue cardstock instead of using a patterned paper. I also used a blending pen to blend in the watercolour pencils so that it would have the "look" of being painted with actual watercolour paints. I don't think you can read the charm I attached to the bow, but it says "Cherish".
Unknown cardstock & Versa Mark ink pad
Sheer Creations ribbon
Prima flowers & Queen & Company brads
CTMH inks, watercolour pencils, blending pen, "Say It In Style" stamp set, embossing powder & "Cherish" word charm

Thanks for stopping by to have a look, and I hope to be back today with the other 3 card challenges for this week. I still have 2 I have to make yet. Here's hoping I make it...lol!
Here is the sketch they provided for us today over at 365 Cards. I totally enjoyed doing today's challenge for Day 85. The nice thing about the card I chose to make is that it could be used for a male or female birthday. Here is my take on today's sketch:
Colorbok yellow paper
Unknown cardstock, star paper & pin
Stampin' Up Spring Song stamp set
Crafts Party Hat charm
Sheer Creations ribbon
Close To My Heart ink & watercolour pencils
April Calendar Page
My daughter had bought these cute little bunny ears for her daughter and I just couldn't resist taking a couple of pictures. I knew I would use these pics for my April calendar page.
I know I have been very bad and negletfull with posting on my blog, but I am hoping things are starting to get better. My daughter and granddaughter had another bought with the flu and it was very bad for both of them this time around. Plus, they were moving in the middle of all of that. Hopefully life will quiet down around here and I can get back on track. Today, I have a couple of cards to share with you. I hope you enjoy them. The first card is one I made for my granddaughter to give her mom.

This is the card I made for my Mother-in-law for Mother's Day. She also had a birthday on May 8th, and I still have to make that card yet.
