A few cards...

So Ellen Hutson has started doing challenges!  I am going to play along with the first one Essential by Ellen Mix it up Challenge.  This one says to use Essentials by Ellen products as well as hero arts.

I used the Bokeh dots stamp set by Ellen and the sentiment comes from Hero Arts.  I also dropped a little gold color shine on the card.

Next up I also played with some of my PaperSmooches stamps and dies to enter into the April Guest Designer Search.

I really love how this card turned out.

That's all for today!

One last PTI Anniversary Challenge

Well I really good intentions of making more cards so that I could enter all the challenges but life happened and I only had time to squeeze in one more.  So here is my entry for the blue ombre challenge.
I just love this stamp set and have not used it nearly enough.  So this card will be for my daughter when she turns 14 in April.  Gotta stay ahead of the game;) 
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Valentines Day!

Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenges

So Papertrey Ink is Celebrating 8 years!!  This is a company that I really love.  They offer excellent quality product and fun, trendy and timeless designs.  So I had a little time to make a few things this weekend for some of these challenges as well as a Birthday card for my son who is turning 16 tomorrow.   Sixteen!  I am having a hard time believing I have a 16 year old, lol. 
Instead of doing three separate posts I am putting them all in one.  First up is todays Challenge of use something that has not seen ink or been used nearly enough.
All three of these stamps sets I love and I have never even used the balloon image from that set.
Up next is the tag challenge.
And last but not least the sketch and color combo challenge.  I will be honest this is not my favorite card (I make a lot of these, Lol)  but I spent time making it so I am going to enter it anyway.
Well that's all for today.  Hopefully I will be back with a future challenge!
