Fun With Sketches

I worked on 3 cards this weekend for different sketches and challenges.  This first one was for the MFP SpeedyTV Sketch With a Twist challenge for the week, but I didn’t really like the way it turned out.

6-1-13 Butterfly SketchSo, I did the sketch again with different elements:

6-1-13 Peppers

 

I like this one much better.  If you notice the ribbon behind the peppers, it has lip prints all over it.  This one is an anniversary card for my husband and I definitely had fun with it.

This last one I did for the Tutorial Time Challenge on MFP SpeedyTV this week, as well as the sketch challenge for MFT.  This was a fun one, too.  I’ll show you the closed version so you can see the sketch, then open so you can see the swing part.

It’s a bit different, but definitely fun.  What sorts of fun ideas do you come up with?

Thanks for spending some time with me today!

Encourage Some Friends

Sometimes, you need to take the gifts God has given you and encourage someone.  I made two cards today for some friends that just need a bit of encouragement.  I’m hoping these do the trick.

This first one is on a St Patrick Day’s theme as it is all in greens.

3-11-13 St Pattys Day Window

 

Supplies:

  • Primitive Blessings (Gina K)
  • Signs of Autumn (Gina K)
  • Cottage Ivy ink (Memento)
  • Remake Grass Greens paper pad (K&Company)

This next one is a bookmark card.  I’ve never actually used my perforation blade, so I finally got to use that.  This is for a couple that I want to encourage.

Supplies:

  • Hot & Spicy (MFP)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
  • Woodless Colour Pencils (Koh-i-Noor)
  • Red Glaze pen (Sakura)

Take the time to use the gifts God has given you, no matter what they might be, and encourage someone else.  It not only makes them feel better, you feel better, too.
