Popping in With Some Cards for Challenges

Hi Friends!! Happy Sunday!!

I am just popping in with some cards that I created for some challenges this week. 

My first card I was inspired by a few challenges. 

I created this with some new supplies I received last week from The Greetery. When I saw the Hearts at Home Toaster Die, I knew I had to have it. My daughter and I have a personal joke. We have had it since she is tiny. We always write and say at the end of a text or conversation-"I love you more than toast!"  

I printed my sentiments because, well, who has a silly sentiment like "I love you more than toast?" I figured that I might as well print out Happy Valentin'e Day! too so that it would match!

The paper I had in my stash forever is by Crate Paper (Sweethearts from the Heart Day collection) and the sequins I received in the Hero Arts January Monthly Hero Kit.

The challenge that inspired me for this card is Freshly Made Sketches #570. However, I flipped the sketch.


I was also inspired by the Time Out Challenge #230-Inspired Words.

This is how I feel about my daughter. She is the BEST thing that has ever come into my life!!

The third challenge that I am entering this card in is the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #194. I used the first column-a die cut, a heart and pattern paper.

For my second card, I was inspired by the Global Design Project sketch #378 and the Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #408 inspirations badge. I am also entering it into this weeks Simon Says Wednesday Challenge-Anything Goes and A Blog Named Hero January Challenge-A Crazy Little Thing Called Love.


Of course I was too late to upload the card for the Global Design Project because I was too busy cleaning so my sister could come over and craft with me!! The card I created is below.

Once again, I used the Crate Paper "Sweethearts" for my background. To match the border on the sketch, I combined 49 & Market Salsa Ticket Essentials and a heart border I die cut with my Silhouette. I LOVE using fun things like ephemera on my cards when I can. I always forget about it because it is packed away but this was sitting out at my desk and was a must have!!

The Couture Creations "One Kiss" die is left over from my cards I created last week. I have to admit that I am kind of obsessed with this die now and I am glad that I pulled it out of my stash to use!! I used two sentiments from Hero Arts. The XOXO is from the January Monthly Hero Kit and the the "I love you more" is from the Loving Sentiment Strips stamp set. 

I LOVE how this card came out and everything was on my desk as a "leftover" to use. 

Well, that is all from me today. I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by!! Have a FABULOUS night!!
