Sweet Card

Over at the Stamp Something blog, this week's challenge was to stamp something sweet. So, I wanted to give a gift to thank someone, and this is what I came up with. The center is actually raised, but that's hard to tell by the photo. Thank you again for the challenge - gotta love them!!

3 for 3 Challenge/Secret Sister Card

Here's a card I did for my secret sister (hope she doesn't read this blog!). We were supposed to mail our gift before our next monthly crop meeting, which is THIS Saturday. I've been so busy, and didn't get it done in time to mail. So here is my card. I also tried to make it fit the 3 for 3 Challenge at the Scrap Something blog - 3 colors (black, white & green), 3 layers, and 3 embellishments (ric rac, staples, & eyelets). Secret Sister: if you see this, I will try better next month!!

Candy Bar anyone?

This was so fun to make - I had the idea brewing all week long, and then I finally had a chance to make it last night. I realized recently that I have 41 Stampin Up sets, and that I really need to use them more. So, I found a couple of really good stamping blogs & challenge sites. One of them is the Stamp Something blog, where this week they challenged you to stamp something red, white & blue and for it to be anything BUT a card. Here is my take on it - a candy bar wrapper. I am going to give it to my husband tomorrow on July 4th. Hope he likes it!
