Over at My Sheri Crafts this week we are celebrating the end of summer with a white on white challenge!  I do have to say that this is always a trick and major challenge for me as I can't seem to stay away from some bit of color!!! :) 

I of course apologize that I do not know the sizzix die cut name of the flower that I chose nor do I know the name of the cuttlebug embossing folder...I always rip the packages up and never think to write in on them anywhere!!

All papers were bought at Hobby Lobby as well as all the lettered stickers and numbers.  I freehand cut the shapes for some additional learning!

My Sheri Crafts Fun 'n the Sun

This week over at My Sheri Crafts our challenge was to make something that dealt with Summer and Fun n the Sun!  This card that I made this week was actually a b'day card made for my cousin who always loves getting my cards.  I wanted to make it extra special so I learned how to make the shadow box card.  The scene comes from the fact that he loves to go fishing and camping as well as it was the thing I did with my family when I was growing up every Summer. 

Papers came from open stock at Hobby Lobby
Cuts from Camp Out Cricut Cartridge

This go around over at My Sheri Crafts we are celebrating weddings and anniversaries.  In doing so we were challenged to use black, white and a splash of whatever extra color we wanted to show off our creations.  This is going to be an anniversary card for my future lists of cards that need to be given out! This time around I did a fold card that I'd never done before!  It was quite simple and ended up to be what I think is quite lovely and know the recipients are sure to enjoy it!

Over at Jingle Belles this past challenge it was all about Earth Day!  Challenge was to use scraps, recycle something normally wouldn't, and just plain have fun!  This is my card for this go around.....

Very simple sketch and idea behind this.....the part of it that makes it my EARTH day recycle project is the paper that the ornaments and sentiment is stamped on is from a pack of paper I got at the OKC Zoo a few years back.  It is made 100% out of Panda POO!!!  Yes, thats read it who wants this card for Christmas?! LOL! :)  Line Forms here.......

This week over at My Sheri Crafts its all about Spring time with flowers and celebrating MOM!!  This particular flower is for my mom, who by the way is the BEST MOM IN THE WHOLE WORLD!!  Her favorite color is yellow so definitely had to incorporate it in the card.  I am more than blessed to have her still in my life and am every day amazed at how much she did and still does for all of us.  Her unconditional love is only one of the things that makes her the best!  She is very talented in her sewing, etc. she says that she doesn't know where i got the bug for scrapbooking, but is always impressed with what I come up with each time I show her my creations.

Flowers are made with a sizzix die cut with buttons from Walmart.
Sentiment from HL stamp set.
Backing paper comes from single sheets at Archivers.

It is very simple but thats ok she will love it!!! :)
