School Lunchtime

My sister  works in the  school  cafeteria and will be returning to school after Labor Day.  It will  be the  end of our all  day Skype sessions while  we play with our silhouette machines.  We've had lots of fun and learned a lot about how to use   the machine.  I made her this  cute card for her first day back to school.

Think Orange

Getting an  early start on Halloween because of  The Pink Elephants the color Orange Challenge.  Halloween is my second favorite  Holiday for cards.


I needed  a  card for a male  friend.  Men cards are  sometimes hard for me because I am more into  girlie things.  I saw the sketch challenge at Our Daily Bread and thought why not make it  work for the challenge too.  It wasn't exactly what I had pictured in  my  mind but I do like how it came out. I will also  be using it at Little Scrap Pieces in their weekly challenge.


I saw this  cute little skunk at Meljens and  just had to stamp him on something! So  I decided  why not use him for the seeing Red Challenge at Cardz TV.I think he  is just adorable!
