Penny Black Challenge

For this challenge at The Penny Black Blog, the theme is background stamping. I used my new paisley stamp on the green cardstock to add the pattern behind my stamped image. The green and yellows I used make me think of spring and sunny days - something which we haven't had a whole lot of lately. :)

Birthday Challenges

Quick post today. I only have a little time before I have to leave and pick up my daughter.

I am entering my card in Simon Says Stamp Challenge and Hero Arts March Contest. The sketch is from Card Patterns - sketch 107. I am also entering my card for that challenge.

The cupcake is Hero Arts. The sentiment is Recollections.

Penny Black Challenges

The theme for this week's challenge is Green at Penny Black Saturday Challenge . I used PB's Yearning. I know I use that stamp a lot, but I only have a couple PB stamps . . . for now.

I am also going to enter it in the Penny Black at Allsorts March Challenge - Welcome Spring.

Hero Arts Monthly Contest

Last month I never got the chance to make and enter a card for the Hero Arts Contest. This month I have finished in time to enter the contest for the first half of the month. All I had to do was use a Hero Arts stamp and upload it to their Flicker Hero Arts group.

Card Patterns Sketch 106

I really love this paper, called 'Up, Up and Away', from Kaisercraft. I thought I would use it to make my card for the Card Patterns Sketch 106 challenge this week.

Penny Black Sparkle Challenge

Well, I won't miss entering this week's PB Challenge. I used glitter around my image (PB's Yearning) and also on the hearts around the sentiment (Hero Arts). I don't have any sentiments from Penny Black yet.

Anything Goes....

The current Simon Says Stamp Challenge (which ends tonight) is 'Anything Goes'. I originally made this entry for a different challenge that wanted a colour combination (teal, purple and orange), but I ran out of time. So I figured I would enter it for the Simon Says instead.
I used my PB stamp Yearning, added a couple orange flower brads and a bow over the stamped 'Hello'. It's hard to tell in the photo, but the watering can is purple and the blue mat is the closest I had to a teal colour.

Card Patterns Sketch 105

I bought some beautiful paper from MME a few weeks ago and finally decided to use it to make a card using Card Patterns Sketch 105.

No Cook Recipe Challenge

This week at Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog, the challenge is a no cook recipe. The entries require: 1 image, 2 patterned papers, and 3 different types of embellishments.

I almost missed submitting my entry (it's been a busy week!)

I used a PB stamp, "...your birthday", two different papers - but from the same pack (sorry, can't remember where I got them from) and for the embellishments I used red brads, ribbon and a red button. :)
