Freshly Made Sketches, Color Throwdown and Cards for Challenges

Hello everyone. Just popping in with some cards for some challenges.

My first card was inspired by the Color Throwdown #599.

It is kind of an unconventional birthday card in that I had to add a heart on the beer bottle to get the pink color in!! Here is the color badge that inspired this card:

I used Waffle Flower Crafts Home Brew Combo set for the beer and the bottle, The Greetery's Pinwheel Party Stencils and Dies, Honey Bee Stamps Confetti Background Stencil, and a sentiment from Simon Says Stamps Birthday Palooza.

If any of these products looks familiar, they were extras that were on my desk from my card making activities from last weekend!!!

Don't you love when you have extras to use for a card? I am liking how this came out and it took no time because I had it all on my desk!!

My second card I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #441-FMS441-and Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge-Anything Goes.


Again, I used stuff from my stash that was already stamped.

I doctored up the stamping on both the birds and the leaves with some Copic markers.

The birds and sentiment are Papertrey Ink's Brushed Birds stamps and dies.

The leaf is Altnew's Leaf Canopy stamp and die set.

This is actually my favorite card that I created this weekend!! I just love these bird stamps!!!

In other news....
Not been a great weekend here in our household. My poor dog is really sick and I am thinking we are going to have to put him down either tomorrow or Tuesday. His heart is not doing well and the additional meds we got from the vet this past Thursday are not working. I have spent most of the day taking all my time snuggling with him.

That is all from me today. I will be back tomorrow with two more cards I created for some challenges. I thank you for taking the time to stop by.

Have a great night.
