Crafting Day

Well, I have been busy the last 24 hours!  Yesterday we decided to just stay around the house and not do a whole lot.  After we got the house cleaned and ran the one errand we couldn't put off for a week, it was time to just relax.  Of course that included a nap, playing with our kitties, and just watching some TV.  But it also included time in the craft room!  YIPPEE!  I made several cards that are for several different challenges....so here we go:

The first card is a Baby theme card.  I must admit that I do make a lot of baby cards since I donate them to our local pregnancy center.  The image is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I just love their stamps!  I'm submitting this card for two challenges - Celebrate The Occasion (#96) Baby Card and Loves Rubber Stamps Challenge #36 - Kirklands Challenge.  My inspiration from Kirklands art.  I like how the background was blocked off.


Next is the card I made for the {PIN}spirational Challenge.  The challenge picture was a cute dog with a bow tie.  My inspiration came from the dog.  The image came from a stash of mixed images I have on hand.


Over at Inkspirational Challenges the challenge this week was a sketch: 

I had a few circle cards and I never really know what to do with them.  This was the perfect opportunity to use one!  I embossed the card with a Darice embossing folder.  It has become one of my favorite folders.



Shopping Our Stash Challenge this week was to use your oldest ribbon.  I'm not sure if this is my oldest ribbon, but I have had it for quite some time.  I'm also submitting this card for Craft Us Crazy Challenge - while it's not red, it is Valentine's themed.


 
 
Of course all my cards this month are included as part of the 100 Cards/Projects in 100 Days challenge at SCS.  This card is also part of that:



So that's it for my card-making this weekend.  Tomorrow is a new week.  We'll see how much I get done this week.  Enjoy your day!
