Sketch Selfie Challenge

Awesome price at Taylor Expressions!!!  As I was totally going crazy with this die, and this one Oh! and this one too,  I realized they had a fantastic sketch selfie challenge for their 6th anniversary.  I decided to take a chance and created this simple card for my friend Sonia that will be celebrating her birthday 9/26.  Go create a card and enter it in the challenge.  Enjoy!  And good luck!

Daughter's Birthday Card

This is for my precious daughter's birthday.  She has liked lilac/purple from the time she was born, lol!  I wanted to use this calendar from Amy Tangerine that I bought I while back.  Enjoy!

Birthday Balloons

The idea was to create a cluster of balloons but I think I cut them too big and they don't look right to me.  I don't have a lot of time left to post so I'll re-do the balloons later and post it for you to see.  Enjoy!

 PS:  Not a very good picture, colors are brighter.

Birthday Card

I came across a new challenge today while blog hopping...Word Art Wednesday, and this week the challenge is anything goes, same as Seize the Birthday.  The sketch from Sweet Sunday is really cute.  Originally I had a white card in mind with a hint of color but the bright colors in Bhavana's card changed my inspiration.  I will make the white card but for now this is what I created.  Enjoy!

Very Special Someone

These are not the original colors I had in mind for Freshly Made Sketches challenge but I came across Color Throwdown and decided to challenge myself with the colors.  I didn't know where to put the grey, so I used it in creating the card base.  The card has a lot of dimension although you can't tell in the picture and a big birthday wish for Lesley over at Seize the Birthday! Enjoy!
