Thank you to those who have been praying for me & my family. I appreciate it. Things seem to be getting better. We'll see.

Today, I just have a few cards to share with you.

I'm happy to say that I was asked to be a guest designer for sketches {by Tamara}. She asked me to do something for her recipe challenge: stars, staples and rub-ons and I must admit that this was a challenge because I do not have many rub-ons (I don't like them). Well, I came up with this card and I'm very happy with it.

Masculine Round Card

I made the stars by hand and embossed the one in the back with my cuttlebug. The title I designed and printed at home and used Tim Holtz tiny attacher stapler, which I received from the sb.com prize pack and I must admit, I loved it! For rub-ons, I used BoBunny's stitching rub-ons that I had around (don't know for how long though). I also used a piece of cardboard for a more masculine look.

Masculine Round Card

This one was a lot of fun! I made it for my dad's birthday 2 weeks ago. I distressed it and love how elegant turned out!

Masculine Card

This was a quick masculine birthday card I made using the Color Combo Galore #150. I distressed and inked the card to make it masculine and had a lot of fun doing it too! I finished it off with a handcut cardboard star.

Masculine Card

Another quick one for Pages in Time card challenge and color challenge. For the card challenge, I had to use an animal in the card so I used a dragonfly. The colors that I chose (she gave us about 4 color combos to chose from) for the color challenge was blue/orange/white which screams boy to me so I added a big cardboard star to the card and called it done! :)

Feminine Birthday Cards

Now, I love how these two cards turned out! The bear is a digi stamp by Squigglefly. Isn't it adorable!? I colored her in photoshop and printed her twice, with different colored dress. I highlighted her with stickles to make it girly and blingy. I entered these two cards in Colorful Creations's Squigglefly Card Challenge, which actually ends tomorrow.

Well, this is all I have for now. Thanks for stopping by!
