click here- is a graduation card. We're going to Erik's cousin's graduation party this weekend and I needed to make him a card! He's graduating from Suffolk University and their colors are Blue and Yellow so of course had to make that the color scheme! I do always struggle with cards for guys because I feel limited to the embellishments I can add but here it is!

click here. I made this card starting off with Ocean Tides card stock and printed paper from Cosmo Cricket. The flower banner is made using PTI Vintage cream paper, tiny tags die, and the letters are from My Favorite Things. The whole banner is held together with poppy colored baker's twine. The little felt flowers are made with Ocean Tides, Pure Poppy, and Vintage Cream cut from the Flower Fusion #2 die. I cut one petal out of each one and then hot glued the ends together to give it a three dimensional look. I then added a little pearl to the middle of each one. Thanks so much for looking and happy hopping!

click here- is to use rainbow colors! How fun! I made a pretty simple card for this one but of course had to add a little sparkle! I hope we get some sunshine and rainbows here in New England soon, it's been like living in Forks the past couple weeks! (Twilight joke if you don't get it!).
Thanks for looking and hopefully this ear thing goes away soon!
Today's Make It Monday #16 on Nichole Heady's blog- click here- is for sympathy cards. I've actually NEVER made a sympathy card before and I just got this new sentiment from Papertrey Ink that I thought would be great. I used clear embossing powder along with the YOF stamp below and with the sentiment up top. I happen to have matching Stickles so I added that as well to give a little sparkle but still keep it monochromatic looking. Hopefully I won't be needing this card any time soon but it was fun to make!

click here. I love this one because it's for a great cause- Operation Write Home and I will be sending this card to them. They in turn send cards to our armed forces oversees to write home with. What a great idea right?! So I thought this card would be great because it could be to pretty much anyone- spouse, child, friend, etc. The only real "rule" for this one is to use red, white, blue, and yellow. Thanks for getting the word out there about this Ted!
The second challenge is Mojo Monday #191- click here. I used their layout to create the card. It's been awhile since I've done a Mojo Monday challenge so I felt like my time was up to get on it!
click here. I love what the designers did with this sketch and I was hoping to dig out some rhinestone bling for this one but must have ran out so I made due with this felt leaf branch. I did heat embossing for the sentiment and used a PTI stamp to frame it.
Click here. I have been lusting over this paper for a while but haven't quite figured out what to do with it. Luckily today's sketch finally inspired me to cut into it! I've also been forgetting about my embossing folders so vowed today to finally get some use out of them too!

Twisted Cards #58 The banner die is by Die-namics and the lettering and most of the paper is from October Afternoon. The stamped sentiment is from a Pure Innocence set. Have a good day!
