2 for 1! has a challenge to use something recycled on our card! has a picture inspired challenge! So I combined the two fo these…the recycled element on my card for spoonfull of sugar is the ribbon that I took off of a gift bag from my baby shower! For the picture I was inspired by the bird cages and the soft green!!!


Christmas cards!! 6 more!

Ok so today naptime came later than nap..hence why I didn’t do the 2 sketches I posted yesterday. So I decided to let my mojo go on its own way without assistance today, and made some cards!!! Hope you enjoy!


Here are a few of my new cards! No challenges..just cards!


Ok here is a page based on another page.. I am very proud of how this turned out… my gf cased another layout on, and challenged me to do it on my own. Here it is!! zach 014 colour combination combined with and the sketch from to make this card!!  (all the rules for the cards, are on the previous post..aka the sketch, the colours to use, and danni’s rule!)

PHEW!! 3 for 1!! Lets try and remember all I did for this card now..there are so many different elements!!  I used bashful blue ink to distress my cuttlebugging, I used the martha stewart arch lattice punch for the edges of the card, ribbon from my stash… the stamp is from stampin up’s oval all from the mini catalog, the punch is also stampin up scalloped oval! TFL!! Positive comments welcome as per usual!



WOW 3 for 1!!! had a recipe of 1 sentiment, check 😉 3 buttons ..yep 😉 and 2 layers.. got it 🙂 I think that it’s safe to say that all the elements of that are here!

Onto where the sketch was awesome..its posted below 🙂 And I followed that to make my card!

Finally today, I ventured over to who had a challenge of an anniversary card.. well I think this one fits the bill!

Hugs, and have a scrappy happy day… please remember all negative comments will be deleted, and only positive happy comments will be kept! Hugs

Hey all..time to check out whats going on in the ways of challenges for Monday!! Hope everyone had a GREAAAAT Mothers Day!!

First off, I checked off my 2 favorite places in blog challenge land… and .. I always try and head here every Monday that I possibly can!! *Grins*…Mojo Monday as always has an awesome sketch… and the Pink Elephant has a colour sketch of light blue, medium, or dark blue, with green and white!!


 As you can see, I turned the sketch into a scrapbook page..and used the pink elephants colours! 🙂

mojomonthepinkele-001I love how this turned out..using the sketch from Mojo Monday, and the recipe from The Pink Elephant, I came up with this baby card. As you can see, the sketch in previous post..and the recipe from TPE was punches, embossing, and stamping…so I punched 2 flowers from Stampin Ups 5 petal punch, and layered them, added a gem and some stickles…the 2 panels behind are embossed with birds and swirls, and the baby cuttlebug folder..then lightly inked with adirondacks Acrylic paint dabber in Citrus, then the 2 front panels are stamped with 2 stamps from my stash..I stickled the diapers in crystal, and the halo in “I believe in Angels” in platinumy gold…the ribbon is from my stash as well..
Thanks for looking,
Catherine, using basic grey patterned paper, and the cuttlebug, for texture combined with …this week is Alliebeans and here is the link to her shop :
and what I was inspired by were the colours in this pencil case…soft pink, beige, white and black… flowers and birds!!
