Doing More Challenges.

I needed to make some Sympathy cards and found a beautiful card and layout over on Nancy's Blog HERE. Nancy used a sketch from Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #52 HERE. I love how this card turned out. All supplies for this card except ribbon are Stampin'UP!

Then for the Baby card I used a challenge I spotted over at Lorie's blog HERE. This sketch was perfect for the stamp set I wanted to use. As an added bonus I even used my sewing machine! :) All supplies for this card except ribbon and pin are Stampin'UP! Colors are Soft Sky, Blue Bayou and Whisper White.

For the next 2 cards I used Card Sketch Challenge #188 from Splitcoaststampers. Every Wednesday on SCS you will find a new Card Sketch. There is always something going on over at SCS!! I love that place :) All supplies for this card except ribbon are from Stampin'UP! Colors are Blush Blossom, Close to Cocoa and Whisper White.

The last card I actually combined
2 challenges. Sketch Challenge #188 and Color Challenge #180. Tuesday is Color Challenge day at SCS. You have GOT to click this card to zoom in and see all the sparkle!! :)

Main image is from MissyB Designs. Sentiment is from Taylored Artwork. Stampin'UP! Cardstock and Designer paper, EK Success Flower Punch, Misc brad that I altered with embossing glitter. Sentiment on top and bottom are popped up on dimensionals.

As you can see..
.I've been having lots of stamping fun!! I made more...but that's enough to post for now :) BTW - don't forget to stop back for the next House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge. Check out all the wonderful cards being created from Challenge #1 HERE. Challenge #2 is only a few days away! Yippee!!!

Love these cards, especially the last one! The sympathy card is beautiful. I really struggle with making sympathy cards.
