And Now For My Second Post!
The majority of the stamps are from Hero Arts. The sentiment is from Savvy Stamps. I don't have Ballet Blue ink, so I found one that was as close as possible - Fresh Ink's Capri Blue.
Supplies: Cardstock: SU! Choc. Chip & Ballet Blue; PTI White & kraft; Ink: SU! Pumpkin Pie & Certain Celery; Fresh Ink - Capri Blue; Stamps: Hero Arts: Starburst & Speckled Ornaments set; Savvy Stamps - Just a Note; Fiskars Threading Water punch; Hero Arts - Hero Hues orange rhinestone.
JUGs Wild Card & Color Cue #4
Since there are five Saturdays in the month of May it is "Wild Card Challenge" day over at the JUGs challenge blog. The JUGs gals, and a lovelier group of gals you will not find, have thrown out the challenge to use the dry embossing technique. I combined their challenge with the current Color Cue challenge over at the WPlus9Design Studio blog. And in honor of WPlus9Design sponoring 2Sketches4You I used their Sketch #53. I absolutely adore the WPlus9 sets Woodgrain Silhouettes and Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions and used both sets for the card. If you have never been to WPlus9Design, you need to check the store and blog out. Dawn, the owner, is an amazingly talented papercrafter and stamp designer. As a matter of fact, right now she is showing sneak peaks of her newest sets and they are fabulous!

Sky's The Limit Challenge
Jenny's challenge this week is to make a project based on things that you generally find in the sky: clouds, planes, birds, etc. Initially this card was based on the current Splitcoaststampers CAS challenge to make a summertime card. As I was thinking about what I would do I immediately thought of the Hero Arts set, Be Happy. Then I thought of the Hero Arts Cloud background stamp and my card was born!
I did a bit of paper piecing for the flower and the bee. And I gave that pleated ribbon treatment another try.
Thanks for taking a look!
Starburst Lace & PDCC30
I stamped the Hero Arts Starburst Lace image on PTI's Vintage Cream cardstock, embossed and then Scattered Straw & Bundled Sage Distress inks were added to the image. The sentiment is also from Hero Arts, Thoughtful Messages.

CTD93 & FTL91
I used the Delightful Dahlias set from PTI for the card, along with PTI's white cardstock for the panel (love Stamper's Select white! best stuff around!). The patterned paper is also PTI.
Thanks for taking a look! Have a blessed day!

I have also dearly wanted to use my Dot Spot set from PTI and thought this challenge was the perfect fit. I also discovered that SU's Bermuda Bay and PTI's Hawaiian Shores are a pretty close match.
Suppplies: Cardstock: SU! Bermuda Bay & Soft Suede, PTI White; Ink: CTMH Chocolate, PTI Summer Sunrise, Palette Cote Azure, SU! Kiwi Kiss; Ribbon: PTI Hawaiian Shores; Stamps: PTI Dot Spot & Round & Round; SU! Scallop Border punch
I got out another long neglected Hero Arts cling called "Hello" for this card. I stamped it in Memento Rosebud ink on two different SU! pinks... Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink and then layered as shown. Lots of pearls, stickles and rhinestones! Patterned paper is from DCWV's The Sweet Stack. Card base is PTI's Stamper Select white. Thanks for taking a look!

Second Post of the Day!
JUGs challenge and a thank you!
Now, on to my card for the current JUGs challenge to use red white & blue and kraft as an option. Card base is PTI's kraft and the patterned paper is from a Websters Pages 6x6 combo pack. I also used PTI's Rustic White cardstock instead of white.

My First Post
So, I finally started a blog. Yikes! A long time coming and so much to learn. Have a couple of pics of cards that I made. One for FTL90 and one for the CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers. The first card is for FTL90. The second card is the SCS CAS card.
