I'm On A Roll!

The sketch inspiration for this card came from Nikki over at A Spoon Full of Sugar (#82), and let me tell you it was a fun sketch! The Crafty Creations Challenge was to make the New Year glitter, so I added some stickles to the pretty present on my card. Simon Says..."PARTY", and you don't have to tell me that one more than once!

All of the paper/sticker/letter elements I used on the card came from Studio 8's Birthday Collection. I got it all from Kindred Collections Scrapbooking. The iridescent sequins are from Prima and the brads are from my stash.

Looking Ahead to Valentine's Day...

That's right, Walmart has put out their boxes of heart-shaped candies so I figured I might as well jump on the Valentine's Day bandwagon!

The sketch inspiration for this card comes from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #50. I used the metallic tree from Colorbok's Friendly Forest rubons for the 2 Red Bananas tree challenge. That Hearts Aflutter sparkle card stock is from Friskars Cloud 9 Designs Sweetheart Collection. Not sure you can see it sparkling in this photo!

Happy Birthday 2010!

Please excuse my long holiday absence, things just get out of control here when all the kids are home to celebrate!!

I created this card using Andrea's sketch (Christmas and Birthday Cards #52) for inspiration. It also meets the criteria for the Belli Challenge #81, which was to use tags, and the Crazy 4 Challenges polka dots challenge.

I wish everyone the best in 2010 and here's to hoping I can get cards posted regularly again!!
