Card Recognition

thank you flamingos

Welcome to another new challenge over at Tag You're It Challenge.  What I love about these fun inspirational challenges is that I make things that I honestly have no idea what I'm going to do with.... so glad to have something outside of the realm of useful!  Can't wait to see what you create.

you make my heart...

Happy Saturday.  I am so behind on card blogging and in the last of the things that stress me out, this isn't on the list (probably why it's not getting done in my crazy summer business season).  But, let's play catch up, b/c I'm still making cards.....  The top card is my card for today's Coffee Cardmarkers Blog, I used the current CAS(E) this sketch as my inspiration for the card.

This card was for the MFT Camp Create fun for glitter.

This was a birthday card I made for a friend's friend.

This was for the MFT Camp Create watercolor challenge.

This is for the MFT Birthday card challenge (and I entered it in the county fair!).

This was for the other week's MFT Sketch Challenge.

This was for last week's CAS(E) this Sketch.

This was for an earlier CASology Challenge.

A happy camper card for this week's MFT Sketch.

And this one is for this month's SugarPea Designs Challenge.

Hello!  I couldn't resist the colorful citrus temptation on the latest Tag You're It Challenge-- plus I love tags and I should find more opportunities to play with my not so small collection of dies.  And while this isn't my most CAS tag, I think it still works for the current challenge over at CASology.

A few cards....

Summer season is my busiest time of the year and while I'm definitely still crafting every morning (it's my "me" time and I look forward to it every morning), the act of writing a blog post seems to be escaping the top of the to do list.  So I've been posting a few of these on Instagram and some I have just made... so here's a catch up for a few more.  The first card is for this week's CAS(E) this sketch.

Playing along with this week's Inspired By Challenge, great to pull out the Coredinations paper and get my whole craft desk dusty with the sandpaper.

This was for this week's CASology challenge (theme "ring").

This fun card is up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today!

This is for the current MFT Sketch Challenge, why not think snowflakes in summer?

And this was for last week's Fusion Card Challenge.

2 cards, one sketch

Happy Friday.  I'm playing along with the CAS(E) this sketch, I did two versions for this week's challenge.  The first card was inspired by my slight obsession with Project Runway.  I used an upcycled letterpress piece for the dress form and a button to "make it work."  My second card uses Altenew stamps and a MFT hi die with a PTI tag die.
