Just had to....

Just had to make a couple of cards. I've been scrapbooking for so long that my card making addiction called out and wouldn't be quieted until I did something about it. I made a little time yesterday and worked on a card for the MFT Sketch Challenge, and then this morning got to it, and made a card for FMS and SSS Wednesday Challenge. Haven't played at any of these challenges in a bit, and thought it was about time! You should too!

Can't stop to chat today. Tad called today, and they're coming for a visit near his birthday. That means the scrapbook must absolutely, positively get finished. So guess what's on my agenda for the next several days (weeks....)??? Yep. Not cards.

Cards for today, however...


My card for FMS & SSSWC started with a Michaels white base and then a combination of stamps. PTI's "Have a" and "Birthday", and SC "Cool", along with their popsicle dies. Scraps of brightly colored papers and a scrap of polkie dot paper with a few pink sequins added just for fun. 

My MFT card has taken a bit of a liberty with the sketch as you'll see. But it made itself. It reminds me of several of my little grandchildren. We often say this to one another...


Again, the white is all Michaels. A bit of silver for the MFT stars, and some starry blue vellum. A scrap of yellow for the moon cut with Wplus9 dies, and a sentiment cut from a tag I bought with those little ones in mind. An AE frame die. Gotta run. Happy dances everyone.

I'm heading straight to the freezer to grab an ice cream snack the second I finish typing! Totally love how you carried the 'pokie dot' theme from the sentiment, to the paper strip and even the three sequins! Awesome colors too!

ADORE your second card! The velum and silver stars are soooo pretty! The sentiment warms my heart! Now...if only I had some little ones to make cards for!
