Another Creative Weekend

Hi everyone!! I am popping back on to the blog to show case a few more cards I created this weekend. That is two in a row where I ACTUALLY HAD MOJO!! Whoot Whoot!! It happens so rarely with me that it makes me giddy.

That said, I also need time to clean my craft room. It looks like a tornado came into my room and there is stuff EVERYWHERE!!

Onto my cards!! The first card I used the Addicted to CAS Challenge #157- Fluffy, as my jumping off point for my card.

I am hoping that this card is clean and simple enough to even participate in this challenge!! I used Copic markers to color in this adorable panda from Gerda Steiner Designs "Lovely Panda" set.

I experimented in trying to make the bear look fluffy by using tiny flicks with my marker. I am actually happy with the way it turned out.

The sentiment is not how I originally planned it. I wanted it to be right on the card front BUT when I stamped it, I got distracted and it came out crooked. I hate to throw anything away so I just added a card strip with the sentiment on it over the top of my mistake.

I am entering this into the Addicted to CAS Challenge, as well as Just Us Girl's Challenge, Birthday and Seize the Birthday Challenge, no topping.

For my next card, I used the quilt from the "Inspired by" Challenge and the butterflies from The Paper Players Spring Theme challenge as my starting off point.

The great thing about this card is all the paper strips I die cut for the front were SCRAPS from my drawer!!

I could see this as a strip quilt, couldn't you? It was so fun to make that I cut more strips from the same papers to create another card but have not gotten around to that yet.

The butterfly and the doily were even left overs from another project. I always stamp or die cut more then I need because I am a person whom makes MANY mistakes.

I just stamped this today and I cannot even tell you what stamp I used for the sentiment. I have so many sets everywhere that I cannot find it!!

Well, that is all from me today. I thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit me today. I hope you all have a FABULOUS night!!
