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!!! :)

This week over at JustRite Stampers Challenge it is all about the colors!!  With these colors we are challenged to make a creation using a JustRite stamp of our choice to doll up the colors provided by the wonderful ladies who run the challenge....and what a great set of spring colors to choose....reddish yellow, pink, and melon.  I was once again torn between the few stamps of theirs that I do have, however, did not want to miss out on all the fun!!  This is what I came up with and hope that you all enjoy it!

I started with a white base cardstock that I inked with Tim Holtz Distress Inks:  Spiced marmalade, Vintage Photo, and Tea Dye.

Circles were cut with the George and basic shapes Cricut cartridge.  One of them embossed with a floral patterned cuttlebug folder.
Leaf stems are a sizzix die cut.
Patterned paper is from a DCWV Rustic stack that have had for a long while now.
Pink Flower is a sizzix die cut as well and then sprayed with my homemade glimmer mist and shaped.
Yellow flower is from a cut off of Cricut Home decor cartridge and then also formed into the flower.
Brown flowers are made by cutting in circular pattern and then rolling them up to form the preferred size.
Gems are from HL bead designs found in the jewelry section.
Sentiment is from the Old Friends Set of JustRite Stamps that can be found at JustRite Stampers.

This past challenge at the JUST RITE STAMPS was to make a background for your card or creation using one of the stamps from Just Rite. Seeing how I did not have a background stamp yet I decided to have some fun and be quite creative and make my own!!

Sentiment: Halloween Mini Sentiments set
Ribbon from HL sewing dept
Mummy was made with felt pieces of strips and circles for eyes out of black cardstock

I really had fun with this and hope to be able to participate with these challenges more n more!!! :)
