Hey Hey! It’s that time again… SKETCH CHALLENGE at Create With Connie and Mary. Yeah!  It is a fun one this week. You can twist it, turn it, flip it; anything goes! Come play along!! Here is my take:

Cake

I needed some Melon Mambo in my life. There was a time in the distant past where I would of never paired pink and orange but those days are over. I really think they compliment each other without fighting for attention!

See that beautiful butterfly?! I am going to miss it dearly. If I had a top 10 list of things I am going to miss most the Beautiful Wings Embosslits would be on there. I have used that thing too many times to count!

Remember Gumball Green?

Hey Hey! Here’s another baby card and don’t you just love those bright colors?! I paired up my all time fav, Melon Mambo, with the retired Gumball Green. The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs set and behind that is the retired Circle Circus set. I stamped it off twice before stamping it onto my punched circle. It just adds a little interest to the background.

I say use your retired stuff!! Cute and whimsical never go out of style! Speaking of style order yours up today here!

For the flower I used the Blossom punch and the peel technique. Easy peasy lemon squeezy folks! Check it out!

A Gift That Keeps On Giving

Happy Monday All! I know I know… You’re thinking “is there such a thing?” and the answer is YES! Especially when you see someone’s face light up when you hand them a box like this! 🙂

I used Rich Razzelberry as my main color. For my flower I used the Blossom Punch along with the Pansy Punch.  The “tag” or leaves were made using My Digital Studio. There is a great tutorial I found by fellow demonstrator Jan Burnett here.  It is easy to follow and all you need to get started is a 9.5 piece of card stock! As my daughter says, “easy peasy lemon squeezy”!

The box can hold up to 10 cards WITH envelopes! Can’t beat that! I’ve made another one of these as a hostess gift that I will share in a couple of days.

Have a great week! ❤
