Happy Birthday

It seems that I have been making Birthday cards lately, but you can never have enough!  My card today is for the MFT Color Challenge #91.

I used several background stamps on the balloons with the challenge colors.  For the balloons themselves, I used the latest MFT card kit.  It is so adorable!

Let's Celebrate

Finally a sunny and warmer day!  Just like the John Denver song, "Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy!" I have a card for the Lawnfawnatics Color Inspiration Challenge #25.  I used a new stamp set, Simply Celebrate, and an older die set, Village Border.   The clouds were stamped with an MFT stencil and Distress Oxide Ink.

I am also entering my card in the SSS National Craft Month Challenge.

The Best Friendships

Good morning friends.  I have a card for the MFT Sketch Challenge #376. I used some MFT papers and stamps as well. The circle panel was embossed with "Romantic Script Background" and colored with several Distress Oxide inks.  I haven't used colored pencils in a while, so I gave them a try.

I have been experimenting with cross stitch again.  The design and die is from Paper Smooches.  I would love to make my own cross stitch designs, but I am not quite that skilled just yet.  I must keep practicing.  I love the results with these cards! I used Lawn Fawn Rose Gold embossing powder on the sentiment. The combination makes for such a nice feminine feel!

I am also entering my card in the SSS National Craft Month Challenge.

Happy Easter

Good morning friends!  I have one more card for the SSS Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes!  I need another Easter card, and I am using some more oldies, but goodies.  This is a digital image from A Day for Daisys, and the greeting is from HA.  I used a matching card and envelope, and I thought it  would be fun to add a little bunny on the back.
