So Sketchy Challenge #8

After doing the color challenge I'm hooked on finding others. I found a sketch challenge on another Close To My Heart consultant's blog. You can find the details and other cards on Mary's challenge here. For my card I decided to use another stamp set that I haven't used yet. Since it's the right time of the year for bunnies I thought I'd better use it soon!

Supplies from Close To My Heart: Ocean Textured Cardstock, Sweet Leaf Textured Cardstock, Blush Textured Cardstock (using up the scraps!), Bunny Love Stamp Set, Organdy Ribbon (retired), Watercolor Pencils, Blending Pen, Piercing Tool Kit

Other supplies: Stickles (Ranger), Cuttlebug Machine and Swiss Dots Embossing Folder (Provo Craft)

Color Chef Challenge #1

It's spring break and I am "free as a bird"! I've had this stamp for months and never used it. Does that ever happen to you? Then a fellow Close To My Heart Consultant created a color challenge and I was inspired! The rules were to use the colors Sweet Leaf, White Daisy, and Breeze or Ocean. You can see Kelly Jo's challenge here at her blog. I also used a new card design, Just Right, from the book Wishes, that will be available from Close To My Heart in June. I can't wait!

Supplies (All from Close To My Heart): Ocean Textured Cardstock, Sweet Leaf Textured Cardstock, White Daisy Cardstock, Bird Basics Stamp Set, Ocean Ink (first and second generation stamping), Sweet Leaf Ink, Sparkles, Chocolate Brad from Shade of Chocolate Mini-Medley

Tickled Pink

Close To My Heart is celebrating National Scrapbooking Month with a special collection, Tickled Pink. I enjoyed putting together these 2 two-page layouts together. The first one is "so happy", and I listed a few things that make me happy. The second layout is "i am...enjoying life". I'll be putting these in a Book of Me that I started a few years ago. The only layout I have is completed is my baby pictures. Now I need to do all the years in between!

Supplies (all Close To My Heart): Tickled Pink scrapbooking kit, Crystal Blue Ink, Hollyhock Ink, and Blush Ink

Then I loved using the stamp set and leftover paper to make several cards. Tickled Pink is available April 15 - May 31. You can buy the collection for $34.95 or earn it for free. Contact me if you'd like to know how!
