Card Challenges

No my friends, I did not drop off the face of the earth. I've just had a break from paper crafting, sewing, machine embroidery, and blogging. But the craft mojo is returning. I got a new Paper Craft magazine in the mail this past week and it worked wonders. This morning I got up, blogged for card challenges, and started making cards! Made two this morning then decided I really needed to make a run to Michaels. Came home and made two more cards. Here's the fruits of my labor today so it will be a long post.



Sketch Girl #19



The inspiration and sentiment for this card came from a card by Connie Vogt in the May 2010 CardMaker magazine. I incorporated her concept with the Sketch Girl sketch and I just love the way it turned out.


IC Sketches #69

I've always loved to use Dawn's sketches at Inspirational Card Sketches. I used her sketch this week to make this card.




Kazan's Sketch 54



I really like Kazan's sketch this week at 2 Sketches 4 You and I used it to make this Fathers Day Card which I will give to my hubby.


Bitten by the Bug 2


The challenge this week at Bitten by the Bug is to use the Sun cut from the Doodlecharms cartridge. Since I have the cartridge, I was able to take part. Here is what I came up with.




My next project will be to do a machine embroidery design on a shirt. I have lost weight and am having to build a new wardrobe.


Have a great rest of the weekend.


Luck, love, and laughter,

Judy
