O Christmas Tree

Christmas cards this week over at the corrosive challenge, I am not sure if I am even ready to start thinking about Christmas. I saw this card in the Cardmaker magazine and I had to try and recreate it. It is a simple door card with a welcome sign. I placed the sign on the bottom as I wanted to hang a wreath on the door. I used Cherry Cobbler for the door and brads for the handle and hanger. I am kinda liking it but think it may need some tweaking.

I love cupcakes! This week's corrosive challenge was cupcakes.I used Stampin Up cupckae stamp set and punch. Each cupcake is different. I used Flower soft on two of the cakes, glitter paper andthe other cardstock. I cased this card from one that my sister in law made. She has used a tiny cupcake punch and was able to get more on the card, but I like mine just the same. Now off to buy some cakes, because all of this talk made me hungrey!

Sketch Week/Mama's Day

Sketch Week

This week at the corrosive challenge is sketch week. Here is the sketch if you would like to play along.

I used a stamp,which I love, from this month's sponser-Queen Kat Designs. I was inspired by the stamp to use a sewing theme. I made the spools of thread(I know a little rough-but it was my first time) and the squares are made with designer paper and then ran through the cuttlebug to give a quilted look.

Sunday is Mother's Day, so I want to wish all the moms, moms to be and mom in laws a very happy day of rest and pampering. I thought I would include the two mom cards I made. The first one is for my mom and the second is for my mother in law.

Turquoise, Pink and Black

This week at the corrosive challenge is to use Turquoise, pink and black. I love this Penny Black image. I coloured him with Copics and used Stampin up tulip border for the frame. This was a case from a sample in the latest Stampin Success magazine. He is celebrating spring and with the awful weather we have been having I am ready for Spring to arrive.
