Do you ever have a card idea that makes you giggle to yourself? I do. Sadly, today is the final day of WSW. It was so much fun. I didn't get to do all the challenges (hello, there were like 3 dozen) but I was able to combine 3 challenges into one card: Mix it Up (using stamps from 3 different stamp companies), Opposites Attract (using opposite colors on the color wheel) and By the Sea.
- Surfer and Surfboards: TAC (The Angel Company)
- Sun: Stampin Up
- Chicks Dig Me: justjohanna's Odd Bird Planet

I like taking Christmas stamps and adapting them for year-round. Here, I used OBP Partrige in a Pear Tree with a cut out of a pear from Daisy Ds wonderland paper. I used glossy stuff on all the pears to make them stick out and to coordinate. A little lime green ribbon, doodled lines and some sparkle. Done.

The top card was inspired by a photograph of a room. I used OBP Scrolly Border and 5 Petal Flower stamps to create the background paper. Then, I used a strip of black Prism paper and ribbon from Bo Bunny. The Bookplate is from JoAnn's and the sentiment is OBP. The layout is this months Lime Tart Sketch.
Dianne's challenge was to use a quilt as inspiration. I love the pattern of my Grandmother's unfinished quilt top. It looks like bow ties. I used the pattern for my layout below.
The paper is from Daisy D's. I bought it a few months ago because it reminded me of old quilt fabric and have been hoarding it ever since. I used my Fiskars Threading Water border punch, some ribbon and Odd Bird Planet Thank You for my sentiment. To add to the quilt effect, I made little stitch lines with my Lumocolor permanent marker.

I used Jen del Muro's Sketch for You to Try from last week for my layout. When I looked at the sketch I imagined justjohanna's Odd Bird Planet's Work Van Right driving on the highway at sunrise. I used all kinds of scrap papers on this one including Daisy D's Wonderland and Basic Gray along with my Sharpie Poster Paint pen and my Dymo label maker.

A little about my day today; I did 4 presentations at my niece's career day at school. I tried to convince 80 first graders that my job is cooler than a firefighter, policeman or nurse. I resorted to dancing and giving away cool mesh bags with the YMCA logo. I think my plan worked. :)

And, speaking of SCS, I made a card for the SCS Featured Stamper Challenge today. I cased a beautiful card from Maren.
I followed Maren's layout and color scheme but used some different patterned papers from Bo Bunny (big polka dots), unknown scrap (green polka dots)and the Paper Source (red check) and I used one of the strawberries from justjohanna's Odd Bird Planet "Strawberry Row" and "Lacy Circle Medium."
The tan textured cardstock and the red ribbon is from my stash. I cut the ribbon in half lengthwise to make it the width I wanted.
