Papertake Weekly Challenge

July seems to be a big birthday month for my friends and co-workers, so the Papertake Weekly Challenge couldn't have come at a better time. Using this week's challenge sketch, I created a really cute birthday card for a friend. The sparkles on the card are from using Stickles and the shimmer is from using Shimmerz.

Sorry the picture isn't the greatest! I know I need to take a photography class to learn the right settings especially for the flash.

Mojo Monday #95

Mojo Monday did it again! They had a fun challenge that I just had to participate in. Using my Anya Teacher stamp from The Greeting Farm and some fun pattern paper, I created a cute first day of school card for my niece.
Isn't she just the cutest stamp?

Simple Card

This past week has been a blurr with all the painting I did around the house along with cleaning up the yard. I did manage to make a card for a challenge, but lost all the details on which challenge I was doing it for (LOL). Any way, I thought why not post it and show it off. It was so simple... all I used was a Stampin' Up flower stamp and 2 different circle punches.

I left it without a sentiment as it can be used as a thank you card, thinking of your card, or just a simple hi card to someone who needs a pick me up.

Lasting Impressions

A few months ago my friend Heather and I took a Lasting Impressions class at Thanks for the Memories in Lake Zurich. We had a lot of fun making cards, laughing with all the ladies, and trying out embossing using templates.

If you get the opportunity, I would highly recommend taking a Lasting Impressions class at your local scrapbook store. Also, if you are ever in Northern Illinois drop by TFTM and say hi to the owner Sue.
