Challenge: Bee Card

Honeybees and honeycombs are the in thing in scrapping at the moment. I am getting in on the bandwagon!

Here is my take using digi papers from Heidi Stock. Visit her Etsy shop! If you use the code 365365 (for this week only), you get a 40% discount on all the products from her store.

Okay, here you go...

This card is inspired by the following challenges.
1 - Paper Issues - Honey Bee
2 - 365 Cards - Day 89 - Feeling Fussy
3 - Scrapbook Sisters - Anything Goes
4 - Kaboodle Doodles - Anything Goes
5 - Anyone for Anya - Get ROUND to it
6 - Farm Fresh Friday - Stitching

365 Cards: Day 88 - Super Sketchy Sunday (Sketch by Pam Maas)

It's another Sunday and for 365ers, it only means one thing... It's time for a super sketch from Pam! :)

This Sunday is no ordinary Sunday though... Because we are happy to have Heidi Stock Design as our sponsor for the entire week!

She has so much pretty digi paper packs and other digi products in store on her Etsy shop that will just inspire you to create!

Heidi is offering, in addition to the 3 paper pack prize for this week's randomly drawn winner, a 40% off coupon code for this week only.  The code will be 365365 to be entered at checkout.  The code is good on EVERYTHING in the store! Visit the Etsy store now...

So, are you excited to see what this week's sketch is?  Okay, here is another one from Pam! :)

And using Heidi Stock Design's Flora Flourishes digi paper pack, this is what I came up with.  A monochromatic and vintage-y take on this week's sketch.

Another shot at an angle...

I hope my humble creation brought you some inspiration.  If you're needing more, hop on to the rest of the 365 Sunday girls.

After that, you must hit the crafting table and soon link up that creation to the 365 Cards Challenge blog!  Did I already mention there is a prize up for grab from Heidi Stock Design this week? ;)

On a side note, Father's Day is just around the corner. I lost my Papa to cancer in 2006.  It's been already a few years, but I still miss him... everyday... This explains the "missing you" cards I have been making lately...  I know he is watching over me and my Mama and siblings, and somehow I don't feel so sad anymore. This one's for you, Papa!

And while Hubby Cookie packs for our 4-day Hong Kong getaway, I sneaked to the craft table and played with them.  This is what came out of it.

I hope you like what you saw here today.  Leave me some love. :)

I made these for a friend who's going to be a new mommy soon.  Since it will be a Mommy and Daddy party,  I made 2 sets of coordination invitations adorned with the cute images from TGF's Mom & Dad rubberstamp set.

To add a personal touch to it, I added the parents names on the cards, too.  And yes, they are having a boy! :)  The papers are from Doodlebug, and they fit my design perfectly!

Here is Daddy Card.

And here is the Mommy Card.

I am submitting my project to these challenges.

A little close up for you...

CCCC: Challenge #12 - A Sketch by Jenn

How time flies. My term as DT for the CCCC is almost up, and this is my second to the last challenge.  I loved working with the talented ladies of CCCC. But life just got a bit too busy that I it's getting difficult to find time to hit the crafting table and create.  Instead of being fun, it has become sort of a chore, so just for this reason I had to give up my spot for the next term. Sigh.  I hope they'd still take me back at CCCC when I get things back in control...

Okay, enough sad talk. Let's focus on the task at hand! Yes, another fortnight of a fun challenge at CCCC this time with a fab sketch from Jenn.  Here it is!

This week, Bugaboo is back sponsoring us with lovely digital images to play with. I picked Boo Sitting Pretty.   And here's my take on the sketch showcasing Boo. I hope you like.

Now hop on over to the other DT's blogs to see what they have in store for you. I am sure you'll get tons of creative inspiration from their projects this time.

After all that stalking, go on ahead and link up your creations to the challenge blog! We'd love to see what you come up with.

Challenge Entry: Baby Girl Christening Invitation

I really like this week's sketch over at the Card Patterns blog.  And so I used it one more time for a Christening Invitation I made as a friend's request.  Here is my creation.

The image is from a Precious Moments colouring page I found online. I used glitter chipboard stickers from American Crafts to spell out the little girl's name.  The paper is from Pebbles' New Arrival line.  The card shape is cut with my Cricut, and the flourish diecut is MFT.

Here is the sketch, by the way.
