Cookie Monster, Elmo

Here is Cookie Monster, and Elmo. I don't know if I like the black balloons. I might have to try something else.

Big Bird, Bert and Ernie and Candy Bag Insert

Here are some samples of invitations I made for my Sister-in-Law. For the candy bag insert, I photo shopped my niece in the picture with the characters. I was trying to send these over email, but it won't work! I thought of just putting them on here.

This is the card that I came up with:

I used a lot of scraps on this one, and I used my SU Many Happy Returns stamp set for the sentiment.
See Ya in the Blog World,

Delightful Sketches #5

Delightful Sketches has their 5th Sketch. I had a hard time with this sketch, because of the way it looks. I kept thinking that I had to use one stamped image to cover the whole rectangle! I figured something out though.

Here is the sketch that we had to use:

This is what I came up with:

I used my SU card stock and SU House of Haunts stamp set for the embossed background.

1 Card 3 Challenges

I have made the following card for 3 challenges. The first is A Spoon Full of Sugar Sketch 64 by Camilla, where we had to use the sketch. This gave me the layout for my card.
Then there is the Whiff of Joy Challenge #43 where we had to use brown, pink, and a Whiff of Joy stamp.
The last is Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge #11 where we had to use the theme "Days Gone By" with a vintage look.

Here is Camilla's sketch:

Here is my take on the sketch:

I used my paper to make her clothes and head band, because I didn't have the right colors to match the background. I used a lighter brown and pink then what I am use to, but I thought that it might add to the vintage look a little.

Done with the invitations

I had a request from my Sister-in-Law to make 100 Hulk invitations and 100 candy bags (50 for girls and 50 for boys) to go with the invitations. I also made little prize cans (one for a girl and the other for a boy) out of my baby's empty formula cans. This is what I came up with. I had been working on them for little under a month now.

All the Hulks were colored in by hand!!! I used 4 different greens and 2 purples. I inked all the edges of the baggies, and the cans. It was hard work, and she was my first order!!!!!! I am happy to have finished them and can't wait to see where it takes me from here.

Whiff of Joy is having Challenge #42, where we had to use a sketch done by Jacqui. I used the sketch for my nephew who will be starting school again in August. He'll be going to the 3rd grade. Since I had made a card for my niece, I decided it would be nice to make him a card too.
Here is the sketch:

Delightful Sketches #4/SVGcuts August Challenge

Delightful Sketches is having their Sketch #4 Challenge. I had lots of fun with this sketch, which I used to make a card for my niece who will be starting Kinder this August. She always has so much fun with the cards I send her.
I am also using this card for SVGcuts. I won one of their giveaways a little while ago, which was so exciting. My daughter loved putting the fishes leaves together.

Here is Sketch#4:

Here is my take on the Sketch:

I would have put this up earlier, but I am once again suffering from migraines, and anyone with those can tell you how bad it is.

Stampin' for the Weekend Call/Stamp with fun Challenge 18

Stampin' for the Weekend is having a call for Team Members or Guest Designers. They have four spots open, and boy is everyone trying to get in on that. I wanted to make a fresh new card and put anything and everything in it. I was having trouble coming up with something good, and then I came across the Stamp with fun Challenge #18. It gave us a sketch to use, and then everything just fell into place. I just love this card, because it brings back a part of my childhood. Hearing the Mariachis play outside our house for my Grandma.
Here is the sketch we were to use:

Here is my card:

I used my new Cinco de Mayo and Dias felices stamp sets from Stampin' Up!, which for some reason show up on the Spanish catalog but won't show up on the website even when I typed the numbers in.....I'll have to give them a call. I used the card stock from Stampin' Up!, and I also used the Modern label punch from....you guessed it, Stampin' Up!.
I hoped you guys liked my card, and I hope I can snag one of those spots from Stampin for the Weekend!!!!
