Tuesday's challenges and a few from a crop

Happy Tuesday everyone!! I have fallen behind on blogging again. However, I have made quite a few cards and projects while away. Hopefully this will justify my inability to keep my blog updated a couple of times a week.
Lately, I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the new card challenge blogs. I want to do all the challenges but just have not mastered this task yet. Hmm. One day soon I hope.
First, My Sketch World had a cyber crop last weekend and it was loaded with challenges, make-n-takes, and games. I had fun completing a few challenges. I type few because I managed to complete 4 and there were over 14! Lucy started this site and has an incredible DT for scrapping and card making. The forum is really active and has something to appeal to all. Check it out!

Here are two of the challenges I did:

First was for a paper bag gift card holder:



Supplies used are October Afternoon County Fair paper, Making Memories rub on and green ribbon, Target purple rhinestones, Wright's purple ribbon, DMC purple floss, and button from craft supply

Next is a monogram card I made for a dear friend:

Supplies used are American Crafts Spring/Summer High Tea paper, Cherry Arte Lime Zig Zag paper, Uniball gel pen, Heidi Swapp black chipboard letter, and Kaiser Craft green rhinestones.

Next I have the 2S4Y weekly sketch. It's Laura's #20! So happy that their blog generates so many talented card makers from all over the world. It's amazing! This week the DT used Creative Cuts and More die cut bags or cards for their creations. I do not have Creative Cuts so I used a K & Co. Beyond Postmarks tri fold card for my card. Here it is:


Here is the inside of the card:

Supplies used are Pink Paislee Sweet Cakes and Office Lingo paper, Cloud 9 Sparkle rub-on, Darice rhinestone.
Another new site that I am addicted to is Card Patterns. They have weekly card sketches to challenge card makers. It's their 3rd week and many are joining in on these great sketches.
Mine:


Supplies used are Pink Paislee Office Lingo and Sweet Cakes pattern paper and alphabet stickers, Bazzill card stock, Quickutz stamp, Vibrance red ink, Darice red rhinestones, Kaiser craft pink flowers, CK Orange silk flower, Wight's green ribbon, and button and brad from craft supply.

That's it for now! I hope to be back later this week with lots more but you never know. ;-) Thank you for coming by and checking out my cards. I greatly appreciate it! Happy Tuesday!
