Good Morning!!! It is Friday!! Woo hoo! Tomorrow the girls and I go to the Bronx Zoo in the City with a bunch of friends so I won't get the time to clean my house or stamp like I would like but we will have FUN! The girls have gone to smaller zoos but no bigger ones so this will be exciting for them!

Sorry about my absence yesterday. I feel like I am running in a million different directions. Oh well....this too shall pass, right? Since I didn't post yesterday, I am going to share three cards with you!

The first card is a card for a sneak peek of the Quite Waters set to be released from Our Daily Bread Designs on June 1. I used the TLC222 Hinge card challenge, Mojo Monday Sketch, Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge to use sponging ( my sky is sponged), and the color challenge to use Bashful Blue, and Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron. I made it for a dear friend who just found out she had breast cancer and went for surgery this week. I am very happy to say she had a lumpectomy, is home and is doing well. I hope this card gives her some comfort during the next few months as she has radiation treatments. She had a 3 year old and 5 year old that she also has to care for.


Paper: Haiku, Very Vanilla, So Saffron, Bitter Chocolate, and water color paper

Accessories: MS Classic Butterfly Punch, Spellbinders Flower Die. Brown grossgrain ribbon, Sewing machine, hodgepodge hardware

The second card I made for a friend who wanted a birthday card for her brother in law. She had only a few requests: 1. That it had a football player on it. 2. That it had a picture of an Aardvark on it and 3. It had to be sewn. That was a real challenge in itself because I am not a football fan and I think Aardvarks are possibly the ugliest creature out there. I used the SC230 Sketch on SC, the Challenge at Creative Inspirations to make a male card and the WT220 challenge to use buttons as well. Although football is not my thing, isn't Ian just so cute!!! I colored him with copics and embossed the helmet and football. All the design paper is Riding Hood Red dp from Stamping Up. I used the Cuttlebug Circles embossing folder for the texture behind the image. Since I really thought the aardvark was ugly, I made it so it was a hinge under the sentiment so it could be covered up and hidden. When I give it to my friend, it will be open but in the meantime he is hidden. LOL!

Card 2 Recipe:

Stamps: Greeting Farm Ian

Paper: Riding Hood Red, Black and White CS, Riding Hood Red DP

Accessories: buttons, Riding Hood Red Ribbon, Oval punches, brad, EK Success Punch, sewing machine, Circle Embossing Folder

The third card is one that I made for the SC230 sketch at Splitcoast and the OCCC challenge to use a sentiment as the focal point. The paper is Bella Bleu DP from Stampin Up. I featured several items from Our Daily Bread Designs including: EK Success Fleur De Lis Punch, MS Butterfly Punch, Prima flowers, Hero Art Pearls and the sneek Peak of Our Daily Bread Designs- Ask Seek Knock stampset to be released on Monday, June 1. I have tried to put the links on all the above to the areas in the ODBD store but my computer is being a real nuisance today!! Sorry! They can all be found here under stampsets, prima , pearls, and punches. The lock embellishment is a Tim Holtz Lock Embellishment pack.

Blessings to you all! I wish you all a great weekend!! I look forward to visiting all your blogs today!!! Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. You are such an inspiration!

Ok, Chris, do you get tired of the word gorgeous! Well, until I check my dictionary and come up with a synonym, that's what I'll have to call your creations! LOL
The hinged quiet waters is so lovely and surely provide comfort with God's word inside and out!
Love the colors of the brown/cream...elegant! And your football card turned out terrific! Hiding that aardvark was so clever...made me laugh!
Have a great zoo day!

The woodland scene on your first card is lovely. What an interesting hinge feature too. The football boy is a cutie on that fun red patterned paper. And I like the keyhole embellishment on the last card that goes with your sentiment.

Danielle said...

Wow! Fabulous cards! I love your hinged card! Its so pretty! And I really love your football card. You did the same thing as I did with the sketch challenge: used a pack of dp from SU! I used the bashful blue pack. I thought it was the only way to make the busy sketch work.
