Cards In Envy News and Reveal

I am very excited to announce that I have been invited to join the Design Team at Cards in Envy.  This is the sketch for the reveal tomorrow along with my card.

We've got a new challenge starting up TOMORROW over on Cards in Envy.  It's a sketch challenge.   And it will be the last challenge with a sketch but NOT the last challenge.  Starting in August, we will be having all themed challenges for Cards in Envy.  I'm posting my card for the challenge a day early as I have my own challenge that also goes live tomorrow and I didn't want this one to get overlooked by all of you.  I know I have a lot of very talented friends and followers and I want to encourage you to create an A2 (4.25"x5.5") non lumpy, bumpy card following this sketch:

Guest Designer at Cards In Envy

I am so excited for the opportunity to be a Guest Designer at Cards In Envy.  The current challenge is to create a card with stitching on it.  It can be machine stitching, hand stitchicng, or faux stitching like I did.  I was inspired for this card by a card that my friend Beth had CASed from Amy Storrie from Stampin Up.  This is what I came up with:
The products used are:
Echo Park Everyday Eclectic 6x6 paper pad
 MFT Dienamics label
Stampin Up Birthday Greetings stamp
Stampin Up Oval punches
Flowers from stash
Twine - the Twinery
Brad from stash
Close To My Heart Chocolate ink pad
Color Box Chalk - Creamy Brown
It's easy to join in on the fun! Just link your card creation that has been STITCHED UP (Real or Faux). All entries must be for an A2 (4.25" x5.5") CARD only with NO lumpy bumpy embellishments. All cards for Cards in Envy must fit in an envelope for mailing through the postal system with no extra postage. This challenge starts at 12:00 AM (central time) June 17, 2013 and ends at 11:59 PM (central time) June 30, 2013. I hope that you will head over to Card In Envy and let us see what kind of stitching you do.

Graduation Time with a few more cards...

My niece also graduated this year.  She graduated from Northern Colorado University.  I was really sad that I was not able to be there to share the time with her, but she was in my thoughts on her special day.  This is the card that I made for her using my Cameo.  I was really pleased with the way that it turned out.  For this card I used American Craft cardstock, the card cut from Silhouette and the tassel from Jolie. 
This is a card that I made for my mom to send to her. 
This is another card for Maddie, since my mom needed a card to send to her as well.
The bottom two cards were made from the following supplies:
 American Craft cardstock
Doodlebug Cap & Gown paper and stickers
Ranger Tim Holtz distressing ink - faded jeans
Kiwi Lane Tag Templates
