2 Cards in a Day!

Hi everyone!

How's your week been?  Mine has been good, though it's going so fast, mostly due to the fact that I've been running kids to and fro for volleyball tryouts and football practice every day.  All that running definitely breaks up the day!  But despite all that, I was still able to make 2 new cards yesterday.  I've also managed to get a couple scrapbook pages done this week, so I guess it's been a pretty creative and happy crafting week for me!

The first card is for a challenge that Kim Kesti posted on her blog.  Here is her card that she wanted us to use as inspiration to make a card of our own:

And here is my card.  I've wanted to try those scallops on a card, so here was my chance.  To make mine, I punched several circles and then cut them all in half before layering them on.  I like the look, even though this is a very different style for me than I usually make.  Different is good, though!

I have to say that without even thinking about it, I like to put hot pink together with turqouise.  I think it goes back to 18 years ago to my wedding day.  My bridesmaid dresses were this bright turquoise and the flowers were hot pink roses.  (Yeah - definitely an early 90's wedding!) 

My next card is more my typical style.  I think I'll always love Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird line - the colors are just me.  This one is for the Paper Crafts Sketch Challenge #6.  Here's the sketch:

And here's my take on it:

I love these happy pinwheels!  Alpha stickers are from October Afternoon (LOVE those too! and all patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day and God bless you all!
