Sweet Sketch Wednesday #22

Can you believe I got around to another challenge this week? As mentioned in my last post, I have been working on some cards for a swap and decided to use a few sketch challenges in my creations. Of course, I made this shortly after the sketch was posted and then BARELY squeaked it into the challenge with 2 hours left…WHOOPS!

This card uses another Mo Manning image called Cupcake Thief, as well as the sentiment that comes with the stamp. I used Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2,#22 for this card. Love how this turned out!

Mojo Monday 355

It’s been awhile since I’ve played along with a challenge “just because”, but I had an opportunity this past week while making cards for a swap.

I selected the Mojo Monday sketch to work with. This is the card I made using Mo Manning’s “Young Love” stamp offered through Stamping Bella. I flipped the sketch in this one to accommodate my rather large image!

Riley & Company – Christmas in July

Deck the Halls with Riley & Sophie. Fa, la, la, la-la…la, la, la, la!

Welcome to a new Riley & Company challenge. This week Jackie is our host and she’s selected a Christmas in July theme. Ready to go?

It’s time for another Tuesday Riley & Company challenge. Are you ready?

Today we’re celebrating the start of summer. Show us your Summer creations using Riley & Company images and/or sentiments.

Mystery Image Swap – June

Woo! Can you believe that I’m all caught up on my Mystery Image cards BEFORE the month is over? Yay me!

Okay, so what that it’s the LAST day of June. I still made it.

Kelly was our image selector this month and she choose this cutie from Cosmo Cricket. It was an…uncomfortable image for me to work with. Not my usual style and I wasn’t sure how best to color it. I elected to highlight the parts of the image with my light colored copic markers, accent the rose and then I brushed over it with a bit of rose colored distress ink.

My favorite thing about this card is the selection of papers. Quite a bit of color and pattern in there and I think it works great! The bow ain’t bad either!

This card also used the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 challenge, Sketch #210. I forgot the request to use buttons or bows when I was making the card. Good thing I included one of each anyway!

Well, any day now my next image should arrive in the mail. Hopefully I’ll see you back before the end of July with the next creation.

 

Riley & Company – Food & Drink

What’s that I smell over at the Riley & Company blog? It’s a new challenge and the aroma of baking brownies and fresh made coffee appears to be wafting it’s way over here.

Or maybe it’s the smell of fine wine and delicious cheese?

Either way, it’s Food and Drink week over at Riley & Company, so show us what you’ve got in the crafting oven.

I have to say, some of the food and drink themed Riley’s are my favorite! Martini Riley? BBQ Riley? And then you add in the Funny Bone sentiments and the selection for this challenge is mind boggling!! I chose to use Baking Riley and paired it with the Lick the Cupcake sentiment.

Can you believe that I think this is the first time I’ve used that Midnight Muse paper from SU and I’m pretty sure it retired this year?

A Riley “Oops!”

The Head Moose over at Riley & Company informed us this week that in the process of getting the new release uploaded and ready for our hop on May 29th, a few (like, lots) of Funny Bones sentiments were deleted from the website.

Oops!!

That means everyone did not get to shop from the entire Riley & Company collection during the release and in the days following. The missing stamps have been added back onto the website and  as a result, EVERYONE gets free domestic shipping until June 18th.

Just enter the code FREESHIP in the coupon section.

Happy Shopping!
