Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge #44

The Current Peachy Keen Challenge is a sketch plus a Monocromatic theme. I picked shades of green (although I did add a little pink chalk for the bunny's cheeks)! I have had a lot of time to do challenges because we have had the most snow on record for January in NY. We have had 2 blizzards and a large storm every week for the last 6 weeks. Guess what, another one is predicted for next Wednesday! I don't mind the snow but I am sure getting tired of shoveling!!! Sure wish I was headed to CHA in California! The kids are loving all the days off from school. Ahh I remember those days!!!
Well on to the project. This card is 5.5 X 5.5 . I used my Gypsy to weld the shamrocks to the top layer. Then I layered more shamrocks on top.

Throwback Thursday Challenge-Paper Doll Cartridges

This time Emma's challenge is to use one of the Paper Doll Cartridges and some type of embossing. With Valentines Day coming up I needed to stock up on some cards so that was my mission! I used the Basket cut from the Paper Doll Dress Up Cart and embossed it with a cuttlebug folder. The best part I got to use a bunch of stamps from Emma's new stamp set You Had Me At Chocolate!

PKS Let's Face It Friday "XO" Challenge

Peachy Keen Stamps LFIF Challenge this week was the use XO's and of course PK Faces! I Used letters from the Mickey font Cart and my Gypsy to weld a shaped card together. I wasn't happy with the holes in the "O's" so I used a circle punch for the faces and popped them up with some foam. I used my deep cut cricut blade for the Glitter paper. It was very thick just like chipboard!

Imagination Monday "Sweet" Valentine Challenge

This time the bi-weekly Imagination challenge is to make a "sweet" Valentine project. I had some wooden bags hanging around for a while so I put one of them to good use! I used some scotch glue to attach the cardstock to the box and then trimmed it with a craft knife. I used the Sweethearts cartridge for all the cuts on this project.

Imagination Monday "Chinese New Year" Challenge

Hello, I made this card for Emma's Imagination Monday Challenge. I don't have an Imagine but I love to participate anyway! I had picked up the Pagoda Cart from M's for 9.99 the other day and as I was looking through the hand book I saw this cut. Right away I thought of this card. I am so happy it came out just as I had "imagined" it in my head (Usually it takes another direction and comes out differently, hehe).

Patterned Paper - Wonderful Winter from MMI
