Inspire Swap Chat's newest sketch challenge

I'm soooo glad that InspireSwapChat is now doing sketch challenges!!!!  They are so much fun!!!  Here is my take on it.  I used SU's Raspberry Tart paper and Emma from Scrollswork Rubber stamps.  I used assorted ribbons and lace from my stash. Sentiment is from a dollar stamp from Hobby Lobby.

ThemeThursday, Stamp Something and ISC sketch & Weekly Challenges

InspireSwapChat has started sketch challenges!  Here's my version of it :)  Used SU Raspberry Tart paper, scallop & heart punches, and Sizzix circles red die. Folded ribbon pieces for the leaves. I think the sentiments are from River City Rubber Works. Also, StampSomething's weekly challenge is "Happy Something". I thought this card was a "happy" looking card :)
This card is a Father's Day card for ISC's Weekly challenge. The Fruit label is from a book by Dover Press. It has tons of vintage fruit crate labels with a CD that you can print images from.  My dh is from Florida and used to work in his dad's nursery. He has spoken of Winter Garden and when I saw this image, I just had to use it :) Used  a Sisslet clear die to diecut the front cover. Also, ThemeThursday's challenge is "Men with Hats" 
This is the inside of the front:
And here is the vintage fruit crate label I choose. It fits since I let him think he's Boss...hehehe.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Friendship cards

I made some friendship cards with the same sentiment but different colors. The sentiments are from Inkadinkado Baby Dear set. The papers are pieces from my scrap stash. The rose/flower is made from a small scrap of the Frosted Filter technique that I just simply crumbled up and shaped.  I used florist tape to wrap a paperclip for the stem and tied a tiny piece of green ribbon to it for the leaves.

Iv'e been bust last night as I have to stay up all night to sleep during the day so that I can stay awake at work tonight :)  I have made another doll dress, wardrobe dress, 9 ATCs and an extra postage holder.  The dress is a simple white with silver floral design. I added white gathered lace trim and a pearl brad at the neckline.

I made a special Halloween dress/card for a very good friend of mine who just LOVES the holiday :)

For the Designer's Challenge at InspireSwapChat, I made this extra postage holder. It's a siple folder with pockets. There is a folded piece of patterned cs that pulls out to slip the stamps into.
And finally, I made 9 ATCs for a swap on ISC "Ladies and their Boudoir".  Had to use pink as the base color. The small face image I got at an online garage sale at ISC. The woman holding the powder puff (aka pompom) is an image from Scrollswork Stamps.

Thanks for dropping by and wish you all a great day!

Challenge Cards - Theme Thursday and Cupcakecraftchallenge

 Not had a whole lot of time for crafting these past few weeks because I've been helping my dh in our garden :)  However, I did manage to finish up some swaps I'm in and a few challenge cards.  The first one is a card for Theme Thursday - "Bright Colors".  It is a Thank you card. 
The second card is for Cupcake Craft Challenges - challenge #93 - "Summer"

These two are made from scraps in my "I-CAN'T-throw-it-away-I-might-NEED-it-for-something!" stash ;)

I have been working on some doll dresses for a paper doll swap I'm in, also.  I post a couple of the dresses in an earlier post but here are some new ones:

Thanks for stopping by :)  Hope you all have a great weekend! (I know I's my weekend off)
