So here are the last 2 cards. The first one is a sympathy card for my husband's stepbrother's wife (since her father passed away). It's pretty simple, but I figured simple and understated are good for a sympathy card. Thanks for lending me the stamp, Wendi.
The last card is for the challenge at Cute Card Thursday that challenges their readers to make a card with the theme of "people" - any people. I chose Ballonabella, as I've only used her once since I got her. I also broke out the Cuttlebug and Crop-a-dile for this card - gotta love the toys!
The next card is using the sketch from My Paper World. I found this paper in my stash and haven't used it in a while - another great perk of challenges.
The final card I made is for the challenge at Arty Girlz blog. It says, "Make something that includes chocolate! Chocolate coloured paper, ribbons, flowers, chocolate smelling embossing powder. A chocolate cake perhaps! The only other condition is that it HAS to include only one other colour (oh ok I'll let you have white too then lol)."
I wasn't in the mood to scrapbook today, so I made 6 cards for challenges or sketches I found online. I told her she needs to come over more often because I'm very productive when she's here!
The first card is from Di Hickman's blog challenge - make a birthday card with pink, black, and white. It's a little hard to see in the picture, but the pink is vellum printed with pink daisies.
The next card fits the sketch from Sketches from Tamara. It's not something I would have done on my own, but I guess that's the good thing about sketches - streching us beyond our regular designs.
The last one for this set is for the sketch at Papertake Weekly. I pulled out an SU set I haven't used in a while, but I do like the dragonfly.
I made 3 more cards, so I'll post them later. Have a great Saturday afternoon!

So I asked my DH to pick a number from the comments, and he picked #7. So comment # 7 comes from Sally: Today my favorite is lime green and orange with a little hot pink thrown in.
Congratulations, Sally! Email me your address, and I'll put the goodies in the mail to you. Enjoy!

I don't have any cards to show for the last 2 days, as we went to Ocean City for a mini-getaway. Here's a picture to get you in the beachy mood. I know I'm ready to go back now! I'm planning to play in my craft room this afternoon, so hopefully I'll have things to post. Have a great Easter, girls.

The first one is for Sketches by Tamara using a sketch she posted. I also used a new stamped image from my RAK package from Cathy (very fun).
The next one is for the challenge on Daring Card Makers to make a card for a teen. I used paper from last year's Summer Stack (from Diecuts With a View). I love these challenges because they make me pull out things in my stash that I haven't used in a while.
The last card I made this morning is for the challenge at the Arty Girlz blog to make a cards with stars. I used my new Cuttlebug die for the big star and an old punch for the little ones. Have a great Sunday.

Today I got an awesome package from Cathy (my RAK partner) with an Easter card, some cute stamped images (including an adorable dog one I can't wait to use), lots of spring-colored ribbon, puffy flowers, and a precious bunny stamp. I love everything - thanks so much, Cathy! I can't wait to play with it. Here are pictures of my goodies.

Thanks, ladies. :)

The second card uses one of my favorite QuicKutz dies, the bunny. It's for the challenge at Card Makers, that asks you to created a card with a cross, an Easter Egg, or an Easter bunny.
I have a few more challenges I want to tackle this weekend, so hopefully I'll get to them tomorrow. Have a great night (if you're still awake).
PS - My Magnolia's came the other day (*insert happy dance*), so look for them to make an appearance soon!
