2S4Y, several other challenges and a mojo infusion

 
My vacation was great. Love spending time with my nephew. Seeing my parents is cool, too. No, really, I do love seeing them. Having a 3 1/2 year-old involved adds a little something extra. All that swimming, watching Shrek and eating icee pops really takes it out of you. My crafty mojo is a little sluggish as a result. So, I decided to check out some challenges to get the juices flowing. This is the final product.
I started with the Laura's great 2Sketches4You sketch, added windows from the Cards Blog using QuickKutz dies. The flowers are almost a year old. I started with them as I planned my card making class from last fall. They did not make it into the class, but I held on to them for inspiration to strike. The flowers meet the challenges for Charisma Cardz, Little Red Wagon, Kah-wink-e-dink and Pixie Dust with 6 punched circles. The embossed layer works for Meljen's Designs and Just us Girls. I had to do some maneuvering to get these to work because the layer is longer than the Fiskars Texture plate, but I was able to get it all lined up and embossed. For 365 Cards, this is so me because you will notice the edges are slightly distressed. I am a little rough around the edges with some very wonderful parts and this card is much the same. Finally, for Stamping for the Weekend, who wouldn't smile or cheer up if they received this in the mail?  For Pile It On, the scallops on each end look like bites out of the pink layer. If I knew of a pink veggie, I would identify it at this time, but none are coming to mind. Here is a bonus. This card can sit either way. In this picture it is slightly easier to see where I used the pattern wheel on each edge of the card. Thanks for the idea Kim Kesti.
BTW, I have been cleaning and purging, so expect another blog candy soon. So far, I have some great scrapbook supplies. I tried to be a scrapper, but my heart is really in card making. My loss is another persons gain. Plus, I am trying to be more focused in my studio, all the extra stuff just leads to my ADD kicking in and nothing getting accomplished.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest creation. I'd love to hear from you so leave a comment or ask a question.

Happy Day!
