Sketch Challenge

I needed a birthday card for my dear sister in law, and Tuesday Morning Sketches had the perfect layout!
I used some old K & Co papers, and my favorite Painter Poppy stamp:
Happy Birthday, Tammy!!!

Falling Leaves

Just Us Girls has a photo challenge this week:
I needed a fall card for a family that does not do Halloween. 
Our leaves have been boring this year.  Not enough rain, and way too warm late in the season for pretty colors.  I had to make my own! Be sure to pop by Words 2 Craft By for our heroes challenge.

Thanks and Giving

Try Stampin' On Tuesday has a sketch challenge:
And Time Out has this one:
I love fall colors.  This year I am seeing a lot of teal mixed in and I love that too!!
This Neat and Tangled sentiment needs to be the focal point, and this sketch is perfect for it!  The striped paper is from Echo Park's That My Boy pad.

W2CB #70 Reminder - Always Be...

This month's W2CB challenge is based on the following phrase: 

Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman.  
Then always be Batman.  Source Unknown

 Batman is a selfless, flawed hero.  Kids of all ages (including my husband, a major fan) love him.  Many of my cards are donated to Cards for Soldiers, and they never have enough cards for boys.  I made an SVG and cut a bunch of these with my KNK Zing. 
 Black base, gold oval, black bat, rounded corners - done!  Super cute and easy to mass produce.  Be sure to share your hero, bat or other project with us at Words 2 Craft By through November 13.

Oxide Inking

The Color Throwdown challenge this week:
I broke out my oxide inks and a stencil and came up with these:
I used Weathered Wood and Shaded Lilac for the one on the right, and thought it looked too blue.  The Milled Lavender and the larger stencil for the card on the left looks better to me, but they both work!

Pink for Christmas?!?

Why not!  The Jingle Belles have a Pink Christmas...for the Cure challenge. 
I combines silver glitter paper, pink glitter paper, and silver matte paper for this pretty one.  I added clear rhinestones to the centers of the snowflakes for extra sparkle.

Time Out has the following:
Sometimes you just need to be reminded that even when someone is gone, they left behind a legacy of love. 
I tried to make the ombre look like sunrise/sunset.  Paper Pumpkin sentiment.
