Seize the Sketch #12 - Birthday Card

Good evening all!  This is my submission for Seize the Sketch #12.  I really hoped that this card would come together, and I really think it did!  I actually want to make a bunch more in a similar style now...  Anyway, the white card stock is from Michael's, the purple from a friend, the patterned from an anniversary gift from my hubby, and the ink, embossing powder and stamps are Stampin' Up.  Hope you enjoy!  I'm going to bed...zzz <3 JEM

Fresh Color

Here is my other card for the morning.  It's my submission for Colour Me Challenge #3 and Freshly Made Sketches #119.  The white and gray paper is from Michael's, the ribbon from a gift bag that otherwise got destroyed, the pink paper from my mom, and the stamps and ink are Stampin' Up.  Enjoy! <3 JEM

Pink Mojo

Good morning!  Two quick posts for you today.  This one is my submission for Mojo Monday 328 and The Pink Elephant 233.  I really wasn't sure about using two different patterned papers together but I really like how it turned out.  The brown card stock is from my mom, the background paper is from a friend, the blue patterned paper, stamp and ink are Stampin' Up, the blue solid and white paper from Michael's, and the ribbon from a Christmas gift.  Hope you like! <3 JEM

Seizing the Sketch with the Pink Elephant!

Okay, I lied!  I'm back with one more card today - so productive! ;)  This is my entry for The Pink Elephant #232, and Seize the Sketch #11.  I seem to be into monochromatic a lot lately.  Anyway, the white card stock is from Michael's and a friend, and everything else is Stampin' Up (in Calypso Coral).  Hope you like! <3 JEM

Colour Me.. with a Freshly Made Sketch

Hey!  This is my second, and probably last, post of the day.  This is a card for my uncle, and it's actually his birthday today... I honestly don't know how I forgot!  Anyway, this card is for Freshly Made Sketches #118 and Colour Me Challenge #2.  These were the closest colors I had to Marina Mist and Melon Mambo, so I hope they suffice.  The white card stock is from Michael's, and everything else is Stampin' Up.  Thanks for checking out my card!  Have a great rest of your Sunday! <3 JEM

Mojo Monday 327

Hey Hey!  I totally forgot that I hadn't posted this card yet, and so I'm very glad to see that the contest hadn't closed yet!  I made this card for my husband's little cousin.  The brown card stock I purchased at Michael's, and the patterned pink was from my hubby, the blue from our wedding photo display, and the yellow from a friend.  The ink, framelits and stamps are from Stampin' Up, as well as the button.  The string is leftover from a craft last winter.  Hope you like! <3 JEM

Seize the Birthday Challenge

Good morning!  Hopefully I can get this posted in the next 6 minutes and it will still be true :)  This is my submission for the Seize the Birthday Numbers challenge.  Me and my bestie are both turning 29 this week (yes, for the first time!), so I thought I would pop a cute card in the mail for her.  The kraft paper is from Michael's, the patterned paper, stamp, and ink from Stampin' Up, and the 29 stamps were purchased at the now defunct Scrapbooker's Paradise here.  I hope she likes it! <3 JEM

2 Challenges in 1!

Good morning, everyone!  Here is my submission for Mojo Monday 326, as well as Colour Me Challenge #1!  I find it easier to come up with a card when I have a layout to follow.  All of the Island Indigo is courtesy Stampin' Up, of course, and the white card stock is from a huge stack of covers that were going to get thrown out at work.  You can NEVER have too much white paper!  Hope you like! <3 JEM
