Our Craft Lounge. I only have 4 stamp sets from OCL and I have managed to use all four this month for their challenges. YEAH me. Today, I used For the Love of Birds. This was a fun and easy sketch and I am finding that I like following sketches.

Build a Bouquet for my flowers. I stamped once on my card and then I added a second layer to the flower. I curled a few of the flower petals for interest. The second set I used is For the Love of Birds. I used the Congratulations sentiment for this card. I love that it is so delicate and has beautiful script. I used the Skor-Buddy to make my two score lines and a Fiskars punch for my card edge. It is a simple and clean card, but I love the fresh look for summer. Thanks for taking a look.

I had this cute digital image and thought it would make a lovely card. The image came from CreatewithTLC, called vintagehelpinghand., thanks to Paulette. My papers are from a stack that was gifted to me, so I don't know the source. I love working with watercolor pencils, so this was a fun image to color.
Thanks for looking. Have a great day.

Over at Our Craft Lounge,http://www.blog2.ourcraftlounge.com/?p=5266 they are have a challenge of masking. So, I used Granny's Truffles for my card today. I used Faber-Castell watercolor pencils for my project. The border is cut with an older Fiskar punch. I used Spellbinders die cut for my image and background blue paper. The sentiment is from the Granny's Truffles and I had to use my Place a Stamp tool to get the words to work for the circle. I place the conclusion of the sentiment on the inside.
Thanks for looking and I hope you visit OCL to see what fun they are up to today.

On the inside is a quote from Tradefish designs http://www.tradefishdesigns.com/ set called Father Quotes.
The quote reads
"Any man can be a father,
It takes someone special to be a dad." Author Unknown
So, my lucky husband got 2 special handmade cards( and a store bought one from my daughter). I had made a card at a Stamp'nUp card camp and gave it to my daughter about a week ago. Well, she forgot it at her apartment. Ugh. Okay, so she has one for next year.
http://www.tradefishdesigns.com called TV TIME and just had to use it. Well, this just fits for my house. My hubby has that remote glued to his hand. The sentiment inside says "Because it really is all about who controls the remote." I masked the image of the girl waving, which is from Close To My Heart set Fun Friends. Thanks for looking. Have a great day.
