Challenge: Bright Yellow Birthday Card

I made this sun-shiny little card for my cousin Rose's birthday. I hope she liked it. :)

I made use of TGF's Simply Anya image.  The sentiment is MFT. The pretty trim and ribbon are treasures from my stash. 

For this card, I made use of a PageMaps sketch from Fia's sketch challenge over at the Sketches4All community site.

I am also submitting my card creation to these challenges.

S4All: Wifey Cookie's ABC Challenge: G for Good

Moving on to the next letter in Wifey Cookie's ABC Challenge... It's time for the letter G to take the spotlight.
G for "Good"

Wifey Cookie wants to see the word "Good" on your project.  Make sure it is visible. I don't want to miss it! :)
Here is my example. I hope you find some inspiration from it.

The stamp is a rubber from DRS Designs -

Wifey Cookie's G for "Good" Challenge runs from 21 June to 20 July, 2012, so you have a full month to put together a project to wow not just me but the whole of the growing S4All family! :)

Here are some simple rules to follow when playing in Wifey Cookie's ABC Challenge.
  • As usual, it's anything goes! You can create a card, an LO, a tag, an altered project, anything! As long as it follows the theme of course!
  • It must be a project created within the time frame of the challenge.  
  • It's alright to combine with other challenges.  The more the merrier!
  • Post your entries at Wifey Cookie's Challenge Group Post here.  I won't look for it anywhere else.
  • You can post as many entries as you want. You get an entry into the random drawing for every project you submit.
  • And the most important rule of all, THINK GOOD & HAPPY THOUGHTS! :)

Here's what's up for grabs when you join in the fun...

RAK #1 goes to a Randomly Picked entry by Hubby Cookie
RAK #2 goes to the FIRST Member who posts a project

Sounds good? I am excitedly anticipating to receive all of your entries!  And there are also lots of other fun challenges over at the Sketches4All community. We'd love to see you in there! :)

365 Cards: Day 109 - Super Sketchy Sunday (Sketch by Pam Maas)

Here's your Day 109 sketch.  Ready your papers and tools, and let's play Super Sketchy Sunday!

And here is my take. I hope you find some inspiration from it. ;)

The cushion pillows are from a rubber care of The Greeting Farm's Sitting Cute set.  Same goes for the sentiment. I used scraps of patterned papers on this one.

Hop on over to the other Sunday girls' blogs to see what inspiration they offer you this week. :)

After that, be sure to visit the 365 Cards Challenge blog to link up your card creation.

Thank you for visiting. Leave me some love. :)
