Way to Go!

My oldest son, Kennedy, was awarded a first place ribbon in his school science fair today, so I thought I would make him a card to let him know how proud of him we are!  I followed this sketch at C.A.S. Clean & Simple Colours & Sketches:


Since I wanted to use a blue ribbon on the front, I rotated the sketch for a vertical card.






Supplies Used
Imprintz mini pigment ink pad in Blue
Jillibean Soup Watermelon Gazpacho Soup 6x6 mini pad
The {Stamps} of Life award2stamp stamp set

Hope and Comfort

I hope everyone's having a great Monday!  After being out of school last week due to winter weather, my son went (happily!) back to school, but my husband was out again today after yet ANOTHER winter storm went through central Arkansas (but didn't hit us!).

I'm enjoying time in my upstairs craft room trying to get some cards and layouts done this week.  My first card today is a sympathy card.  These are always cards we (unfortunately) need but don't want to make.  I followed the color AND sketch combination from Always Playing with Paper:


I had to do a little searching to find the right colors in my stash, but here's my card:




Supplies Used
Brad from stash
Cardstock and patterned paper from stash
Michael's Paper Flowers

Challenges Entered
