Thursday Challenge Two-fer

Before you read on, don't forget to go to my post here for your chance to win some blog candy!!!!

Now that I have your attention ;) I just wanted to share a few cards I made last night for some challenges. The first is a card I made using the Splitcoast Stampers Wed. sketch challenge seen below.

This was a little bit of a complicated sketch for me to follow with all of the elements, but the oval was option which helped. This is what I came up with below. I think it makes a great over the hill card. In fact I showed it to my husband and joked that I should have given it to him for his birthday (earlier this month) since his is an "old man"! Not really, but he is about 4 years older than me, so he'll always be older than me!!! :) :) ha!


This next sketch is the Mojo Monday challenge, which I always want to play, but seldom can get it together on Mondays. They put up a new sketch every week, super fun. Here is this weeks sketch below which you can find http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/2009/05/mojo-monday-week-88.html.
This is the card I made below. Again, I am borrowing a stamp set and want to get the most use I can out of it before I return it (yep, want them all, it is a sickness!!!). So I came up with this card. It is actually suprising because I loved this DSP (Raspberry Tart) at first but then I saw so much of it I didn't like it anymore and have refused to use it since. I decided to stop holding a grudge ;), because it is in fact pretty paper, and pretty soon it will likely retire, so why not.



Anyway, thanks for stopping by- hope you enjoyed. Don't forget to play for your chance at blog candy!!! :)

Hi! Katie, it's really funny which we had the same "GOOD" idea for this sketch using the Top Note Die ;-)!! Your card is very nice.
By the way, thank you for looking at my blog this afternoon.
Nice evening to you.
