Color Throwdown and Freshly Made

Hi Friends,
I'm playing in a few challenges today. One is the Color Throwdown 403 and I used the Freshly Made Sketch 247 to put this clean and simple card together. 
I had so much trouble getting this card made. Mr. Mojo made me fuss and throw away all kinds of paper trying to come up with a layout for the adorable Simon Says Stamp Unicorn. I got it free as a birthday gift from SSS. 

I'm rusty since I haven't made a card in two weeks. It's so hot but I have been enjoying summer. 

As you can see I sponged a distress ink background on water color paper and added some glitter paper stars and sequins. The inside sentiment says "filled with rainbows and something". Haha. I'm not home so I can't look it up and Google can't find it. 

Some other challenges:
Cardz4Gals -No Patterned Paper
In the Pink Challenge -Rubber or clear stamp and pink
Seize the Birthday -Pink&Brown or Anything Goes

Thanks for visiting today.

Retro Sketches 222 and Merry Monday

Hey there Friends, I have a Christmas card today. Did you know that you can link up any Christmas cards you make this summer at Merry Monday Challenge Blog?
They are closed to challenges but allowing us to link up all summer for a chance to win a gift card. I'm just playing because I gotta get some cards made! 

I'm following Challenge 211, make a blue, white gold and silver card. This is blue, really! Just teal blue. I put it together using Retro Sketches 222 loosely. 

This card was much prettier without the gold elements. I regret putting them on there. I have a saying I always say. "I crapped it up" by adding the gold. ANYWHO, here it is. :)
Thanks for visiting!

December Daily 2015

Hey Friends, This post has my December Daily 2105 album. I used Becky Higgins, Heidi Swapp Oh What Fun, Value kit. I finished it in January but hadn't made a video.

 My video is not the best but you'll get the idea! It was VERY time consuming to complete in the month of December but I'm happy I have it now. Thanks for visiting!

Curtain Call-Cherry Bomb


Hi Friends, I'm playing in a few challenges today with this card, primarily The Curtain Call Challenge-Cherry Bomb! When I saw the cherry in the photo I thought of my Simon Says Stamp "Ice Cream Dream" striped Popsicle stamp. I colored the images with Copic and fussy cut out. 
Following the Retro Sketches #221, I created a panel with Lawn Fawn patterned paper and layered my images on foam tape with some strips of paper, one border punched, and a Lawn Fawn sentiment heat embossed in gold. I added some gold thread and sequins to add some fun. 
I'm linking ups to this challenges as well.
