CPS Challenge 232 Part 1

Last week I was in Minnesota for work.  I was looking for inspiration but didn't get any.  On the weekend I decided to go to my sister's birthday party which was interrupted by the birth of her new granddaughter!  That was pretty exciting!

For this card I used My Mind's Eye "Love Takes Flight".  I starting out stamping balloons on the white card stock and then I did paper piecing.  The ribbon is from really reasonable ribbon.  I edged the cloud in blue ink and used my Cuttlebug template for texture.

I also thought you would want to see what happened during the earthquake.  When I got home my Cuttlebug plates were on the floor.  So much for the damage!

CPS Challenge 231 Part 1

I was having a hard time with this challenge until Cliff asked me to do a bird card!  We are avid bird watchers so this is very fitting.  I didn't have time to shop for a stamp so I downloaded a stamp from Designed2Delight.  I then pulled out my colored pencils for the cardinal.  The focus seems a little bit off but I am running out of time.  I leave for a business trip tomorrow so will be out of pocket for a few days.

I was so inspired by this color challenge - immediately I saw something embossed using these colors with a retro theme.  The picture did not turn out as well as I would have liked.

CPS Challenge 230 Part 1

I had my mind on birds this weekend.  I don't know why this is a pink bird other than I was thinking pink!

Hope your week goes well!

CPS Challenge 229 Part 1

Happy Monday!

Next weekend my sister will be going to a baby shower for her son and his wife.  So my card has a baby theme interpretation of the design.

As you can see - I like clean simple designs - I try to make things frilly but it never seems to work out!  I wanted to stamp a sentiment on the front of the card but ran out of room so I had to settle for something on the inside.

The paper is from DCWV
