CAS(E) this Sketch #105

I thought it would be fun to try playing alone with some challenges.  I'm using up some scraps left over from the Apron Strings 2014 – September Smaller than a Breadbox kit.

Here is the sketch I was following from CAS(E) this Sketch.

And here is my card:

Shhh, don't tell my nephew Jakob because this is going to him in September.

OWH December ODBD Challenge

I noticed that the Operation Write Home's Our Daily Bread Design monthly challenge was short a few cards, so I actually took a picture of my card and I'm posting it.  The challenge was to use red, blue and yellow.

I used the My Mind's Eye Boy Crazy paper I got from A Cherry On Top's Black Friday sale.  The stamp is from Inkadinkado's Vintage Expressions set.  The start is a punch from Fiskars and they are both covered with glossy accents.

OWH Card Bowl 2014!!!!

It's been a while since I participated in a challenge but I thought this sounded fun.

The first challenge was from the card bowl blog post.
Masculine Ode to the teams! Make a masculine card – for men, teens, or little boys – in any OWH-approved theme. And make your card somehow reflect either the Seahawks or Broncos. Use their colors, something about their city, their mascot – get creative!

I wanted to use a "Bronco" but I didn't have a horse stamp.  So, I went western and kinda blue and orange.
Join in the ODBD challenge on this blog SATURDAY and make yours a masculine card.

Join in the Sunday Sketch challenge on this blog on SUNDAY and make yours a masculine card.

OWH VCMP Challenge #4

This challenge for the OWH VCMP was to make a love card using sketch #29.

Here is my version using the Authentique 6x6 Lovely bundle collection that I recently got on clearance at Archiver's.  Gotta love clearance!

Good thing I posted this to Pinterest or I wouldn't have noticed the words were upside down.  It's fixed now.  :)

OWH VCMP Challenge #3

This challenge for the OWH VCMP was to use one piece of patterned paper and die cut it to make the triple stamped card look.  I decided to use my cricut for this since that would make it easier.

I have no idea where the patterned paper is from.  I found it while sorting all my paper last Monday.  the blue is the retired Not Quite Navy from Stampin' Up.   I also attached a little butterfly charm that can be taken off and kept.
