Curtain Call Act 3

Stacey hasn't had a Curtain Call challenge for a little while, so I was excited when she put one up the other day. I loved the colors she used too, so that was even better. I stuck with a sketch I used before because I like it so much. I just used Kraft for the base, Melon Mambo for the next layer with some Melon Mambo DSP on top of that. To get my Certainly Celery in there I used some ribbon, and cut out some leaves from my Stampin Up sizzix die cut. Then used some Very Vanilla and my Sizzix Build a Flower die cut. I added a random button, paper pierced around the edges, and it was that simple. I purposely left off a sentiment to be added later as needed. I am finding that I need a certain card and don't have one, but have tons of other kinds. This is my solution....for now at least.
Thanks for peeking in.
Have a great day.

Karen Giron's SSSC34

I love the sweet simpleness of the sketch this week. There are so many different, fun ways of doing things with this sketch. I guess because I saw my pregnant daughter in law last night, once again I have babies on the brain....lol. From the picture it doesn't look like the colors flow very well, but in real life they do.
I have been using lots of "vintage", supplies lately, and it's been lots of fun. I mean I bought those supplies....way back when....ha ha ha....because I liked them. I still like them, so why not use them right??? Well, that's what I've been doing. This dsp is from Provo Craft. I don't even know where I got that stamp, but it's a fun one.

Thanks for peeking in today.
Have a great day.

Mojo Monday week 103

I love the fact that I got to play with the Mojo sketch on Monday. Now that I'm back to work, it makes it a little bit harder. When I first saw this sketch I thought, "Oh my goodness, what can I do with that?" Then, as I thought about it, it seemed rather simple. Sometimes I think we, at least I do, make these challenges harder than we need to. Actually, I think my problem is that there are SOOOOOO many talented people out there in cyber card making world, that I worry about my own skills. So, I decided to lighten up and just make it fun. I went with a Thanksgiving card. I used all Stampin Up supplies, and was pleased with my result.
Thanks for peeking in.
Hope you have a wonderful day and week.

Color Throwdown Challenge

Color Throwdown's colors this week were colors I wouldn't have put together,but that's what makes it a challenge right? I only had a small strip of Always Artichoke so I tried to utilize it the best I could. You can't really tell in the picture, but that is Always Artichoke....sorry.
Anyway, I'm not too impressed with this card myself, but it will have to do.
Thanks for peeking in.
Have a great day everyone.

Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge

I absolutely love these colors together. This was a color challenge from Pals Paper Arts blog. I was struggling with a sketch for this card, but am really pleased with how this card turned out....but then, did I mention I love these colors together??? ha ha ha
There are some seriously old supplies used on this card. The flower stamp is an old one from Stampin Up and the Brocade Blue DP is ancient too.
Thanks for peeking in everyone.
Have a wonderful day today.

Raspberry Suite #16

I haven't done Dawn McVey's color challenge for a few weeks. I figured since I had all the colors called for I would play along. I kept it pretty simple. I haven't been in my craft room for over a week, so the mojo wasn't completely flowing yet. I used Kraft for the base, cut a piece of Summer Sunrise from PTI and found a coordinating piece of DP from K&Co. I cut out the letters and flower in Cream. I used a button from Stampin Up and the ribbon is just some in my stash I got from Michael's. I paper pierced around the edges, and called it done.
Thanks for peeking in.
Have a wonderful day.
