Cuttlebug Challenge #41

Well I was able to complete all four challenges this month! This one was the hardest for me because I had no idea what to do and the more I thought about it the harder it was! Now that I am done a million ideas come to mind, it figures! I took a kids craft frame and painted it, I embossed the background paper and then stamped my image and the sentiment on the frame. I am not in love with this project, but I wanted to paricipate in this challenge and I was really stumped!

So this is my first time participating in the PTI Bloghop! I am very excited, this should be fun. For my card I used the kraft and berry sorbet cardstock, some patterned script paper from Paper Pizazz. I used the Butterfly Kisses stamp set for the butterfly and sentiment. I embossed some butterflies and a stamp from SU Many happy returns stamp set. I am new to cardmaking and hopefully with time and practice I will get better!

The joys of summer!

So I love to wear flip flops and I love summer (if I could wear flip flops year round I would love it)! I bought a stamp set from PTI with flip flops in it and decided to make a card with a different pair of flip flops for each day of the week! The flip flop and saying are from PTI, the days of the week are from a inkadoo stamp set, the paper and ribbon are also from PTI. I would love to hear your comments!

Peachy Keen Challenge 2

So I am new to this whole blog thing and I am also new to card making. I have been scrapbooking for a while although I took a few years off after having my 3rd child. I recently bought a cricut and cuttlebug and am having so much fun with that, and of course after getting back into crafting I became interested in stamping as well ( it is like coloring for adults)! So here is my card for the Peach Keen Challenge 2. I am having so much fun participating in these challenges and I am hoping to get better with practice!
