A couple of cards for my guys

Lots of boys in the family so I always like to keep a few of these ready to go.  Girly cards are easier for me so I can't whip one of those up fairly quick and that seems to be what I gravitate to for challenges too unless it specifically is for a masculine card.  Stamps are from The Greeting Farm.  Love them and if you have looked at some of my other blog entries you'll see I like to use them often.  They are still pretty recent additions to my stash so the newness hasn't worn off yet and I get to practice my copic coloring skills which will always need to work I'm afraid.  

Happy Anniversary Cards

I wanted to finish using up this little paper pack of red, cream and black paper so I made an Anniversary card and a 2nd card that could be either for an Anniversary or a Wedding.  My sister doesn't make her own cards but likes to send them.  She told me that her stash was getting low so for her Birthday I'll put together a stack of cards for various occasions and send to her.   These will probably be included.

Sweet Sunday Sketch and Paper Cutz challenges

This little gem I really like.  I really wanted to incorporate some lace as a challenge to myself.  I've had this box of lace pieces and just haven't used.  Mission accomplised. 

Challenges are:
Sweet Sunday Sketch #88
Paper Cutz Challenge 62

Sweet Stop Sketch SSS77

I like the sketch and the card except for the flowers.  I just feel like they get lost.  I was using scraps and probably should have used a different pattern than the one they are sitting on.  They just fade away.  Oh well too late now and I think the card is still cute.  Stamp was a dollar stamp, don't remember where I got it or the brand.  Patterned paper was a freebee that I have had from Archivers and decided to get it used up.

Black, White and Lime Birthday Card

I made this card for my stash as well as a few of challenges.  It looks a little yellow in the picture but it is a vivid lime green.  The flower was cut from one of my cricut cartridges, Paisley I think but don't hold me to it.  Stamps are by Stampin Up.  Front says "wish" and inside reads "However you may celebrate, whatever you may do-hope your day is filled with love and wishes that come true!  

The challenges are:

The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #104 - distressing (my flower was distressed after cutting with Cricut)
Cute Card Thursday #133 - make your own (made my own flower and border with punch)
Crazy 4 Challenges #c4c58 - birthday card
