Here is a card I made for 3 challenges. The first is for Christian Paper Crafts for their #61 Color Monday Challenge, technically CPC-CM61. Jen wanted us to "Choose Your Own Story" and use, pink, blue, orange, yellow and neutrals or any of those. How fun is that! The 2nd challenge is for Stampin Sisters in Christ who want a card with no stamped images except for words. Finally, Practical Stampers wants us to use flowers of any kind on our creations this week. So this card qualifies for all 3 of these challenges. The HOPE stamp is from Paper Inspirations and quotes Jeremiah 29:11. I stamped it onto a soft green cs using black ink and heat embossed it with Ranger Clear ep. I inked the edges of this panel, adhered it to a slightly larger blue rectangle of cs, inked those edges, and did the same with a pink rectangle of cs. I adhered these to the Basic Grey dp from their Lemonade collection. I used a Queen & Co. adhesive flowery felt ribbon across the bottom. I used 3 flowers from K & Co. across the top.
Btw, if any of my links don't work, they are in my sidebar. Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!

I made one clean and simple card for Father's Day this time. It actually goes for 3 challenges. The first is for Christian Paper Crafts Fun on Friday Challenge. This week, for challenge CPC-FOF58, we were to make a masculine card. Two other sites wanted cards "For the Boys". They are Creative Inspirations Challenge Blog and Cupcake Challenge Blog. The links to all of these sites are in my sidebar. The design teams all did a great job. I am almost embarrased to turn this card in. I DON'T do CAS well, and I felt like I had to do CAS to do a guy card. After looking at all the inspiration, I found out that was totally wrong! My new goal is to make a great guy card without going the clean and simple route, because it is just not me!
This card was made with K & Co dp covering the whole white cs base card. Yes, I covered the back, too. One big piece of paper. I used a Spellbinders Label 3 Nestie to cut and emboss white Bazzill cs, on which I stamped an owl image from Inkadinkado. I colored in the image with Copics and added a couple of epoxy leaves from my stash. The bottom of the card has an Autumn Leaves adhesive border, also going all the way around the card to the back. The letters for Dad and HOO are from Rusty Pickle, and the "loves you" letters are rub-ons from my stash.
Thanks for looking and hope everyone has a blessed Father's Day!
