Happy Monday!

I generally don't like Mondays but each one is another day closer to half term LOL I have a few more cards to share with you left over from the weekend.

The first one is for Sweet Stampin's Challenge #25 to use Summer Sun, Green Galore, Only Orange and Pixie Pink - wow what a challenge this was! I would have grabbed my Sweet Something for this challenge, like I did for this color combo of Stacey's a few weeks back, but I thought I'd better try something new! I grabbed Mojo 89 as well and came up with this:


Stamps: Itty Bitty Buds (Hostess set), Flight of the Butterfly

Papers: Summer Sun, Green Galore, Only Orange, Pixie Pink

Inks: Summer Sun, Green Galore, Only Orange, Pixie Pink

Accessories: Yellow dotty satin ribbon from stash, Daisy Pattern and D'vine Swirls Embossing Folders, Circdle Nestabilities, Clear gems from Papermania

My next card is for Stacey's Curtain Call #29 to use Summer Sun, Bordering Blue, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White - yikes another very bright combo! I also used Our Creative Corner's Sketch #14 for my layout. 


Stamps: Round & Round (3rd Year Anniversary set) from PTI

Papers: Summer Sun, Bordering Blue, Haiku DSP

Inks: Summer Sun, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss

Accessories: Tangerine Tango Ribbon, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Circle Nestabilities, Spotty Buttons from Papermania

My next card is for Crazy for Challenges #36 to use the little poem What Little Boys Are Made Of as inspiration for a project and immediately the retired Unfroggetable set came to mind. I used Splitcoast Stampers Sketch layout SC279 and Color Combo CC82 to use Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Real Red and Very Vanilla as well.


Stamps: Unfroggetable

Papers: Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Certainly Celery DSP, Summer Picnic DSP, Haiku DSP

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: None

My next card is one that I really like and is for the Farm Fresh Friday sketch challenge. This stamp has been bugging me for ages to buy it and I finally succumbed last week when in my local stamp store. I have no real idea how often I'm going to use it, but I think she's just really cute. And the sentiment I used goes just so well with it, don't you think? (Excuse the wonky photo though!)


Stamps: Laundry from The Greeting Farm, Sentiment from On My Couch Additions from PTI

Papers: Spring Moss from PTI, Orchid Opulence from SU, Copics White cs, Both DSP sheets from K & Co.

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Spring Moss Button, Purple Embroidery Thread

And my final card is one I really don't like to make - a sympathy card for my friend at work whose Father-in-Law died this weekend. I wanted to make a simple card without any frills and a calming colour combo so used the old CC123 to use Bordering Blue, Mellow Moss and Not Quite Navy for it.


Stamps: Upsy Daisy from SU, Everyday Classics (2nd Year Anniversary set) from PTI

Papers: Bordering Blue, Mellow Moss, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White

Inks: Bordering Blue, Not Quite Navy

Accessories: Mellow Moss grosgrain ribbon, Brayer! (I think I'm slowly getting the hang of this, but I will be stalking Michelle Zindrof's blog for some improvements!)

And that's all for today folks! Thanks for looking and happy stamping!
