CCMC 143 Butterfly Celebrate

I made a girly, springy card for this weeks Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge



It turned out that pretty much everything I used is non-current!  The butterflies and greeting is from the Just Celebrate stamp set.  I colored in the butterflies with Tempting Turquoise, Regal Rose, and So Saffron.  Thanks for looking!

I wanted to do something crafty today, but didn't know what to make, so I made a pillow!  I just made up the pattern as a went along- I love patchwork style stuff.  It was fun to make and turned out fun looking!

Classy Thank You

   I liked how simple the colors in the Stampin' Celebration Challenge were this week.  I made a very simple, but somewhat classy card to go with them.  I used a Basic Black base and put a piece of Whisper White embossed with Polka Dots and cut out flowers from the Big Shot.  The tag punch is stamped with 'thank you' from the Garden Greetings stamp set.

Our Purple Door!!

My husband and I wanted to paint our front door and this is what we decided on...

I didn't want typical door decor for our new door, so I made my own.  I attached three mini wreaths to the long sticks and tied random fun colored ribbon around the wreathes. 

Our door isn't boring any more and we love it!!!

Criss Cross Thanks

I haven't made a Criss Cross card in awhile and I wanted to do something different, so I used the Greenhouse Gala DSP.  The base of the card is Pumpkin Pie and the red accents are Real Red.  I added Chocolate Chip ribbon and a red circle with a Pumpkin Pie button as the belly band.  The 'thanks' came from the stamp set So Happy for You. 

Thanks for looking!

Good Friend Thank You

Here's a Thank You card I made using the bird from the Good Friends stamp set.  I stamped the bird in Chocolate Chip and cut it out and placed it on a 2 1/2" circle in Baja Breeze.  I used some Old Olive DSP as the background and finished it off with punched holes and squinched Whisper White ribbon.  
Hope you like it!

Flower Thanks

This week's ColourQ challenge had some fun colors to work with!  I really liked working with black and white and the contrasting colors.  The colors made me think of tropical flowers.  So this is what I made!

   I punched the flowers out of the 5-Petal punch using Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Baja Breeze (I didn't have any Cool Caribbean...).  I crumpled the flowers and glued them onto a piece of Whisper White and added a black dot for the centers.  I cut three thin stripes of Whisper White and layered it with the 'thanks' from 'Outlined for Fun.' 

Thanks for looking!

Tulips for a Friend

I liked the mix of colors this week at ColourQ...this is what I did with them!

These were great colors to make flowers with, so I made some tulips out of the Tangerine Tango using the Owl Punch and outlined them with Early Espresso dots.  The Pear Pizzazz leafs were made from the wing in the bird punch.  The Early Espresso rectangles were filled with textured Bordering Blue paper.  

Thanks for looking!

Simple Girly Purse

Yeah!  I finally sewed my first purse that turned out well all the way around!  I had a lot of fun making it and it was really easy.  The directions from Ric-Rac were great and easy to follow (which definitely helped!).

Inside-sorry it's blurry.

 The inside has a 
 pocket and a 
magnetic snap.  I made a flower 
pin for the front to decorate it. 


I love how it turned out and I am excited to use it!

Thanks for looking!
