Tuesday's Challenge Cards

Hey ya'll, I have several cards to show you today. First up are my OWH Sketch #20 challenge cards -yup I made three of them. the first two I used chipboard tags purchased from the dollar bin at Michaels and chose my paper colors to match. The last of the OWH sketch cards is a "man" card...those are a little more challenging for me, the "Mr. Fix it" was a stamp I found in the dollar bin at Johanns and the little hammers,saws,and screwdrivers I stamped over the plaid paper twice, also came from the dollar bin.




Next are two other sketch challenges...first is a card for the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge. I did not have this spellbinder die so I improvised with a scrolly stamp I had. This card features a cute frog called "beach baby Jayme". It is a freebie over at Whimsey Inspirations. Please check out her special request for cards for her sister (Jayme) who has terminal cancer. She also has a sponsored RAK for one lucky participant. I hope my card will bring Jayme a smile!

Last is my entry for the JUGS (Just Us Girls Sketch) Challenge. I found this background paper at Hobby Lobby in the clearance bin. Its really colorful but a tad hard to work with because it tends to overtake a card. This was the first cut from this sheet. I will probably make simple cards with the rest of it just maybe tying a bow since the paper stands well "alone". On this card I also got to use one of the freebies I got on the OWH bloghop and colored to match the paper...this adorable little snail by...Yolanda.



Thanks for having a look at my cards today! Happy Scrap 'n!

Wow, these are all so nice! I like how you added the embellishments in both a horizontal and vertical way on that red, white & blue one and how you stamp on the plaid paper for the Mr. Fix It, and the burlap and... okay you get the idea... I really like the cards!
