Friday Mashup #202

One more challenge for me here as a guest designer for The Friday Mashup! I'm sad March is coming to an end, I had so much fun playing along with the design team!!!

This week's challenge is a sketch by Bree!

You can choose to use the sketch, OR make a card with a masculine theme.....OR, mash them up and do both!  Here is my card for this week's challenge:

For my card, I went with the masculine theme, and a rough version of the sketch. I can't wait to see what y'all come up with!!!!! Masculine cards are always a challenge for me so it is always fun getting ideas from everyone else!

I want to thank the design team over at the Friday Mashup for having me this month, it has been an honor!!  Don't forget to visit the Friday Mashup to check out all the projects the DT have created! You will be inspired for sure!

With Gratitude

Lately, as if I don't already struggle to find time to craft.....its been even worse! Our son JJ is in the hospital, he's been there for a few weeks now, he had 3 surgeries on Tuesday! Poor little guy! We spend as much time as we can visiting him...he's doing great and hoping he can come home soon!

 All the cards I DO make now are thank you cards! To send to the TON of loving people who have visited JJ and sent him gifts! He's a popular little boy!

 So, for this thank you card, I found a few challenges.....
 1.  CASology Week 138: Blossom!   With all the amazing entries on this one this week, mine is a long shot! but i'm entering it!

2.  The Challenge #27, I used the colors and the sketch! my sketch is mirror imaged though!

3.  AAA cards, Game 35, Bare Naked CAS.   I went with as much white space as I could!

I think that's all I got for this card....REALLY wish tomorrow wasn't MONDAY!!! ugh......why do the weekends go so fast?!

Thanks for visiting my blog today!!

Friday Mashup # 201

I'm back with another fun challenge from the talented team at the Friday Mashup!  Here is this weeks challenge:

The challenge is to use the colors Rich Razzleberry, Smoky Slate and Pacific Point.....OR....a See-thru element, such as a window, vellum, acetate, etc.....OR.....Mash em up and do both!

Here is my card:

I chose to mash them up! I used a circle die and cut the circle out of the middle as my window.   I hope you will join me in playing along at The Friday Mashup! And while you are there be sure to check out the stunning creations from the rest of the design team, I am so honored to be playing along as a guest designer this month!!!
