Cards for Some Challenges

Hello everyone!! I thought I would be posting more but came back from a Disney vacation last Sunday and it took me almost a week to recover from it. We had A LOT of fun-Charlotte's last hurrah before she starts school August 18th. However, Disney is NOT what you call a "relaxing" vacation. You spend all that money you want to get your money's worth!!

I was able to make a few cards this week. I am trying to participate in more challenges!!

The first two cards I created I made for the July Twofer Challenge.

The theme for this month was "beverage."

I had to use the same stamps and make two different cards from them, for two different occasions.

I used the Fusion Challenge this week for the card sketch, as well as Seize the Birthday "Anything Goes" theme as a jump off for my first card.

I am planning on making another card for Seize the Birthday WITH the stripes topping but just didn't have not gotten around to it!

I had created these bottles a long time ago and had them in my stash so it was fun to pull them out. The first card I created for a birthday. I used the MFT "Soda Pop" stamp set and the "Soda Pop" die-namics for this card.

My second card was more of an "all occasion" card. I just really wanted to put different labels on the colored bottles so used all but the birthday. I also went back and fixed the glitter on the lime label. It kind of dried altogether. I took a pin and separated it but didn't feel like retaking the photo.

I am also posting a card I created with the mess from my desk. I often stamp and color things then they sit on my desk.

The flowers and the dragon fly are from two different Hero Arts Sets. I masked the flower from "Marianne's Flowers" and used Copic Markers to color them in.

The sentiment is from Altenew's "Beautiful Quotes" stamp set. I LOVE this stamp set!!

That is all from me today. Have a fabulous night!!
