* another KK challenge *

Last sunday the new challenge at Kenny K's was online. It was again a terrific sketch. Unfortunately I was not able to enter last week even though I bought specially a new digi :). So a good opportunity to use it now. I am proud of the coloring for this one. I think it turned out quite ok. I used for each color 3 different pencils and tried to mix them as best as I could. I still need a lot of practise.... Supplies: Going green papers Basic grey, green cardstock, Kaiserkraft flowers, Crafts too corner punch, jewel, green & orange ribbon, Derwent colorsoft pencils, Kenny K digi stamp, Jolanda's text stamp.

* Baby card * free wordart *

As promised in the previous post, below the link to the word art. Just leave a comment when you download. Enjoy! Futhermore another card. It has been ages since I last entered the Get Sketchy Challenges
so it was high time to do so again :) I loved this weeks sketch since it's not a pattern I would make normally, so it was a real challenge. But I like the outcome. The card is also for Karens Doodles Dutch challenge site, and the theme is baby card or project. Don't you just love the great digi's from Karen. This girl is just too cute. I just papermania's beautiful papers and again I used my own digi stamp. Supplies: Papermania Rose Garden papers, Prima Marketing flowers, roses, Digi stamp Karen's Doodles, Derwent pencils.

* Christmas in July *

I found a new challenge site which had a great sketch to work with this week - Paper Play Challenge. So I decided to enter and combine a challenge from Karens Doodles US where the theme is Christmas in July. And if you have a lot of cards to make, better start on time, right?
I have chosen for First Snow digi stamp combined with my own stamp, which will be offered in a next post as freebie. The papers are Eskimo Kisses which is Basic Greys amazing X mas line of last year. I still have some scraps of those, enough to start making some Christmas cards already.
This is also for:
2 sisters challenge: Christmas in July
The shabby tearoom: Christmas in July
Fab n Funky: Christmas in July
Ooh La La: Christmas in July
Cute card Thursday: christmas headstart

Supplies: white, pink, green cardstock, Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey, Fiskars borderpunch, digi stamp Karen's Doodles, my own wordart, Derwent pencils.

* again some new cards *

Seems I really got my mojo back, because yesterday I finished 2 more cards. The first one is with a great image from Kenny's. (I love the fact that I can buy stamps now that I've got paypal finally) Don't you love it? The card is based on a sketch of Dutch Card Lovers. Kenny's challenge was to use pastels, so I dug out an old paperblock with lovely summery pastel colored papers Madame Royale. Which I haven't used for quite a while.
Other challenge: Wild orchid Challenge - Flowers Supplies: We R Memory makers Madame Royale papers, lilac cardstock, orange cardstock, white puffy paint, scrappers floss, jewels, McGill Flower punch, EK Succes flower punch, Kenny K digi stamp, my own text.

And the last is a card for Card Patterns & Karens Doodles Scandinavian challenge blog nr. 18.
Unfortunately the tiny squares are hardly visable, because as usual I put to much on the card, but they are there!
Karen has a sale at this moment, so it was a nice opportunity to buy some stamps and get one for free. The challenge was love. And isn't this girly lovely? How she likes the butterflies.
Supplies: green & pink cardstock, Basic Grey Green at Heart papers, green & pink ribbon, pin, Prima Marketing flowers, button, Zva Creative bling bling, Karen Doodles digi stamp, my own text stamp.

* After a break.... *

I finished some cards again and I enjoyed crafting again.

The first is for CardPatterns sketch 71 already again. There are some anniversaries coming up, so I started making some cards for that already. I used the romantic papers of Papermania together with a picture of Mo Manning for a fun note. Added some flowers and roses and pearls and it's done.
Supplies: pink cardstock, doily paper, prima marketing E flowers, roses, Crafts too corner punch, digi stamp Mo Manning, my own digistamp, ribbon, Zva Creative pearl swirl.

And I made a fun card with Kenny K stamp. Don't you love it? I am going to buy one or two more. I combined them with the bright colors from My Minds Eye and another digi stamp from TLC. (The card is based on last weeks sketch from DCL, but I was not on time to enter)
Supplies: My Minds Eye papers, Bo Bonny on the dot, crafts too corner punch, digi stamp from Kenny K, digi stamp from TLC, ribbon, scalloped scissors.
