A couple more challenge cards

I have a couple more cards to share with you! The first one is another card that I made yesterday for the SCS sketch challenge. I wanted to make a card for my mom because she is in need of some encouragement at the moment. I thought that this scripture said what I wanted to say and will bring her some comfort!

Check out those cute little flowers! Acting on a tip from Lauren Meader, I found these in the wedding section at Michael's. What a great deal! There are alot of them in the container and they only cost $4.99. These are shimmer white, but I dyed them with my Soft Sky ink pad to match the card. The stamp I used is Salidago Sprig from Rubber Stampede.

This second card was made for the Ways To Use It challenge on SCS. The challenge was to make a card using music as inspiration. Well, I still had that Itty Bitty song playing in my head, so this one was a no brainer. I used my Hula Girl stamp again and came up with this card.



Isn't she cute? She's still wearing that yellow bikini! I used my Karen Foster snap stamps for part of the sentiment.


Card 1)
Stamps: Salidago Sprig (Rubber Stampede)
Inks: Soft Sky, Basic Black
Paper: White, Black, Soft Sky
Accessories: Ribbon, Adhesive Rhinestones
Tools: Cuttlebug, Textile EF, Slot Punch


Card 2)
Stamps: Shore Thing (Imaganisce)
Paper: Marigold Morning, Assorted DP's
Inks: Black Pigment Ink
Accessories: Markers, Black EP
Tools: Giga Scallop Punch

That's all I have for now! I have family coming into town tomorrow night and I have to take mom to her Oncologist in the morning, so I'll probably not be back on the computer til Sunday! Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
