MFT Color Challenge #97

Along with the sketch challenge I also played along with My Favorite Things color challenge this week.  Here’s my card along with the color inspiration!



MFT Sketch Challenge – Sketch 393

I played along with My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge again this week.  Here is my card along with the sketch.

Stick It Down’s July Card Sketch

It’s hard to believe it is the middle of July!  I needed a birthday card for my nephew so I used some boyish paper along with the Epic Dad stamp and die set from Wplus9.  Here’s this month’s sketch followed by my take on the sketch.  This month’s sponsor White Rose Crafts is offering a coupon code for $25 worth of products so be sure to link up!



White Rose Crafts owner, Kay Barnes, is a paper-crafter of many years’ standing, who hails from Yorkshire, England. The White Rose is the heraldic symbol of Yorkshire, and dates back to at least the Fourteenth Century – possibly even before that! And it’s well known in the UK that Yorkshire people are proud of their roots!

Kay moved to the United States, initially, to work as director of an organization providing help to the homeless on the outskirts of Washington DC. When that contract came to an end, she moved out of the city to enjoy country life… and with time to devote to it, and the encouragement of a whole set of crafty friends, she decided to embark on a new path that would give expression to her other great passion in life…  for all things glittery, shiny, and papery…!
