Case this sketch

We have 90 km winds here today so I'm staying inside and making cards.
This is the sketch at Case this sketch

I put a slight twist on my card by threading thin cardstock strips through eyelet edging. I added a tree to co-ordinate plus my sentiment DAD as two weeks time is fathers' day.
I'm sure there is a garden conscious Dad who will like this.

Try it on Tuesday

Try it on Tuesday also wants garden. I had a brilliant idea with this one but unfortunately my spray mists were clogged so I had to pour from the bottle instead of misting.
The background was made by mixing 2 colours "dribbling" together.
Next, I used a large stamp across the surface.
My sentiment says memories because gardens often make you recall certain smells or flowers. It could be used for a variety of occasions.

Li'l red wagon & Cards in Envy

The challenge this time at Li'l red wagon is bows and arrows.

I've chosen more of the Fancy Pants wonderful day paper which featured arrows.
I added a bow made from organza which was left from a previous layout.The scanner squashed it flat but it looks nice when "fluffed out".
This is a Thank You card.
Meanwhile Cards in Envy wants bugs.
I had a sheet of stickers from Basic Grey featuring flowers and butterflies, so taking the easy way out using the stickers, I made this card.


Paper Issues and Challenge YOUrself.

At Paper Issues we are asked to scraplift this layout and at Challenge Yourself we need a die cut.
I had these 2 photos taken when 3 of us met up for coffee and the café was celebrating their birthday.
They were looking for people to have their photo taken with balloons and yours truly was chosen.

My die cut is the cream frame around the lower photo although there is also the cake.
I use Fancy Pants Wonderful Day papers and kept with the 3 primary colours where I could.
I've also used 4 cut off strips from papers, several brads, washi tape, Basic Grey stickers and 2 tags I had. It was a small moment that became fun.

Crazy4challenges wants monochromatic cards.
Yesterday at our crop day I made 12 Christmas cards.
The one pictured below uses all green shades.

Rochelle Spears rewind challenge and Scrap our stash

No automatic alt text available.

This is the sketch for Rochelle Spears August Rewind challenge.
Here's my interpretation.
My pictures are landscape rather than portrait but otherwise similar. I put my title to the side as there was no room at the top.
Meanwhile at Scrap our stash there is a tic tac toe.
I went top left to bottom right through the centre.
So I used map paper(from an old atlas 1963 that I had at primary school.), polaroid frame and washi tape.
I'm pleased to have used the awful background paper that I have had for over 10 years.

ABC Christmas Challenge & Freshly made sketches wants red, quick and people on their card.
I've made this one featuring a little girl with her dolls.

and at Freshly Made sketches here's the sketch 
I've made a Christmas card with a slight variation on the sketch.
The white lace wouldn't look good next to the white card, so I moved it slightly.
