Relay for Life

Today was our Relay for Life fundraiser.  It was great fun! 11 people attended - including one teenage boy and a little girl.  Mary raised over $115.00 for her Relay Team.  I've agreed to do it again in for Davenport's Relay!  Check back for more info if you would like to participate.  This is one of the 5 cards we made today. 

Card Recipe:
Card Stock - Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink & Whisper White
DSP - Patterns in Rose Red

Stamp & Ink:
Birthday Bliss
Chocolate Chip Ink

Cordory Buttons - Pretty in Pink
5/16' Brads - Chocolate Chip
Scallop Edge Punch 
Grosgrain Ribbon - Chocolate Chip

Stamping 411 - Sketch & Stampin Royalty - KISS

This is my first Stamping 411 challenge.  I really like this sketch/layout and think this card also falls into the KISS (keep it simple, sweetie) challenge over at Stampin' Royalty.

I did a Relay for Life foundraiser today (all birthday cards) and this was one of the cards everyone created.  It's hard to see in the phots but the kraft (soon to be known as crumb cake) is textured using the distressed texturz plate.  I haven't used the In Colors much this year and thought they would be a nice change.  I think this card makes a great birthday card but also be used as a graduation card, for recovery, or anything else you can think of.

Card Recipe:
Card Stock - Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry & Whisper White
DSP - Razzleberry Lemonade

Stamps & Ink:
A Little Birthday Cheer
Rich Razzleberry Ink

Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon - Melon Mambo
Vintage Brads - Pewter
Modern Lable Punch
Big Shot

PPA38 - Sketch Challenge

Oh My Goodness!  I love Marget Moody's sketches - you can check it out here.  I haven't participated in any challenges in a while.  I know a lot of ladies like to craft at night but I like to create during the day which doesn't really fit in with my 8-5 Monday thru Friday job.  But last night I couldn't take it anymore and had to spend some quality time in my craft room.  Here is what I created:

Card Recipe:
Card Stock - Whisper White, Basic Black, So Saffron, Melon Mambo
DSP from the Sale-A-Bration

Stamp & Ink:
Hello Again
Melon Mambo Ink

Black Vintage Brads
So Saffron Stripped Grosgrain Ribbon

PPA36 - Color Challenge

This week's PPA Challenge is a color challenge.  This week I couldn't get the hearts they use to show the colors out of my mind.  So I decided to use them on my card.  I added a little embellishment and this cute thank you card was born.
