Retro Sketches #55

During my second pregnancy I joined an amazing mommies group on facebook. We are a group of 84 ladies that were all due in the September. The Alberta mommies and toddlers had a gathering in Calgary on St. Patrick's Day and this is the special card I made for our host.  There was a bit of a snow storm that turned some away from the travel but not me, I love our flex & winter tires.

Papers: Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, White, Beyond the Garden DSP
Extras: Pacific Point ink, Decorative Label punch, Green Ribbon (dollar store) Scallop edgelit (MFT)
And the wonderful sketch is from Retro Sketches 55 my inspiration came from Laurie card, although I did have to re-locate my bow as it was to heavy over the sentiment for my liking. Thanks for taking a look and leaving a comment. I really appreciate all the comments!

Roxy - Happy Birthday

I have to share my newest blog that I am following. A friend of mine had pinned a card box that caught my eye and when I went over to the blog I fell in love. I love Vicki's style and that she's a close to my heart consultant. I've been collecting Close to my heart and Stampin up paper to scrapbook for YEARS. It's so nice to get some great ideas to use up the leftovers on cards.

Today's card is a case of Vicki's card made with Clementine papers click here to see.

I switched it up a bit to use some scraps of Roxy paper for my dear friend Sara. Roxy was her favorite paper pack. I changed the ribbon but tried out Vicki's bow technique, love it but will try next time with a ribbon that isn't sattin.

Paper: Roxy (Close to my heart)
Ink: Hollyhock, Basic Black
Ribbon: Black Sattin (dollar store)
Extras: Chip board shape, Cricut, Xron, Sponge, Just Blooms Paper Shapes "Flutter", Rhinestones.

Seize the Birthday #10 (Masculine Birthday)

Here is the great sketch over at Seize the Birthday #10 (Masculine Birthday)

And here's my card for this challenge:
This card is for our nephew who turns 15 at the end of the month. Feels like just yesterday when we hurried to the hospital to meet him for the first time! I was able to use my new favorite paper pack from Close to my heart "Later Sk8r" sponged the paper edges with outdoor denim ink. The big gear is cut out with the cricut "Artiste" and the sentiment is an old favorite from "Nursery Bash"

Thanks for looking and leaving a comment!
