Mojo Monday Week 41 Challenge

This card was created for my friend Sherry, who just had her 2nd baby girl!
Paper - SU! Vanilla and Close to Cocoa.
I have no idea where I got the pink paper - just in my stash! The patterned paper is by K&Co. "Hopscotch Girl Ballet Toss."
Stamps - SU! Soft and Sweet (retired, I believe)
Embellishments - pink brads with crystal stickles and American Crafts Ribbon.

Sketch to Try

This is my very first sketch "challenge." It really was fun - especially since I had a need for a graduation card!

Paper -: SU! Black, Whisper white and a silver metallic that I got from Michael's

Patterned Paper - Stemma "After Graduation"

Stamps - I got the graduate stamp from the dollar bin at A.C. Moore and the corner stamp is from the Verve Visual Filigree Fantasy

The ribbon is an AC Moore ribbon.

I made this card for my graduate - Cody - he graduated from the 5th grade today. Boy was I a proud Momma! I thought I would showcase him here in all his cheesiness!!! Happy graduation baby boy.

Summertime color challenge - a wee bit late

Here is my interpretation of the Verve Visual "Summertime and the living is easy" color challenge. Entries were supposed to be posted by the 31st of May. Oops, I didn't quite make it.
I have never entered any challenge before and I was SO nervous about posting my work. But I really liked how my card turned out, so I thought - what the heck. I will link to the contest anyway.
Here are the deets:
Stamps (from A.C. Moore - Inkadinkadoo)
Paper - SU! Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White & Certainly Celery
Ink for Cones - pumpkin pie
Ink for ice cream and words - regal rose, so saffron, certainly celery, & Bashful blue (I didn't own any sky blue, so I guess I didn't follow all the rules!)
Extras - stickles for the sprinkles, big brads by Queen & Co., and sweet petite ribbon from AC Moore.
Next time I will do my best to get my post in on time!
