Happy Mothers Day...

I hope everyone had a nice day, I was able to complete 3 cards so my day was perfect!
I, like most of the card and lo bloggers enjoy all the sketches going on out there but am having trouble doing all the ones I really want. I'm going to combine as many different sketches, color schemes and themes into one card as possible from here on out if it doesn't work out it's fine there is always next week...

This first card incorporates Stamp Something's Pink Birthday, The Pink Elephant's Circles & Scallops, A Spoon Full of Sugar's tactile and texture and also Card-A-Licious #21 wanting pink brown & scallops.





Our Creative Corner has a beautifully designed sketch. Wouldn't you agree?



I flipped it & opted to use circles rather than ovals because that way I didn't have to get out of my seat...


This final posting uses a fab sketch from Taylored Expressions sketch # 67, love it!


I also utilized Color Throwdown with their color palette of :

I feel this is an example of a cheer up card for Cute Card Thursday and Secret Saturday Crafter wants to make use of eyelets or brads or why not both for their challenge # 31.



Thanks for stopping by and make time to head over to Unscripted Sketches for there 5th Saturday challenge! Have a paper and ink filled week! Beth aka BR-T

Wow Beth you have rocked all these challenges. All you cards are stunning and so intricate. I am not doing so well on challenges at the moment... sigh.. These long shifts sap the creative juices. I am waiting for inspiration to strike for the Unscripted Sketch!!!
Happy Mothers Day.

I totally here you on all of the challenges! Most of the time, I end up just looking at them rather than making cards! Great job with all of them!

Fantastic cards!! First...I love the one for TPE. Your flair for the abstract design always amazes me. You truly took the circles and scallops to a whole new level.
Then, I see that you also enjoyed my sketch from the OCC this week!! I love how you used the circle instead of an oval.

You have been busy :-) Great cards! Especially the 1st one, with all the different kinds of circles (and maybe because I love pink LOL). And nice that all 3 are so different.

Pat said...

Great cards and i love the first one, i don't know why but i am thinking of chocolate just looking at it, i think i need a break :)
I like to follow sketches but you should see me how long i take to decide which papers to use on my cards! Sometimes it takes me hours just to decide for one paper. Is everyone like me?
Anyway, you've done a great job with the cards. You always amazes me!
Hugs xx

All very pretty! Thanks for playing the Throwdown! Hope to see you again next time!

Andrea said...

I really like how you used your nestie to cut a square out of the middle of the card....very clever...I never think to use the negative of my cutouts.
Thank you for the kind comments on my blog as well.
I'm glad to have discovered your blog, I will be returning. Ü
