Happy Birthday : Sisterhood Challenge

With some birthdays coming up and it being my turn to host the challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters, I figured I better get my butt in gear and pump out some cards :) Luckily, I had some Viva La Verve sketches to catch up on, so this was the result...
First up, Sept Week 1 {8/31/12}. I thought this would work perfectly for my sister in law's birthday early next month. The Rich Razzleberry and Baja Breeze worked beautifully together, I thought.
Next up was the Sept Week 4 {9/21/12} sketch. I went with the new Midnight Muse and some old paper that I think is Soft Sky?!

Finally, the Sep Week 3 {9/14/12} sketch in Real Red, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery & Wild Wasabi.

Dustin Pike of Doodle Dragon Studio is sponsoring this challenge, so be sure to head to The Sisterhood of Crafters for a chance to win :)

No Stamps Allowed : Sisterhood Challenge

Well this was a well needed challenge for me - one to get me to use up some of the HUGE pile of rub ons that I own, but never seem to use. I used some SU! designer series paper from last season, as well as some seam binding and a button. The sketch is Viva La Verve's September Week 2 sketch.
I loved how this card turned out despite having spent much more time than should have actually been required to get the mojo going again.

Head over to The Sisterhood of Crafters to show us your stamp-free creation!

It's been busy for me around here (hence the lack of stamp time). I've got a 10K run this weekend (Terry Fox run), plus another 10K next Saturday and I finished my annual Cross Country Camp over the long weekend with my favorite lesson horse (had a total blast!). Now it's back to regularly scheduled horse jumping lessons, work and run training (maybe I'll sneak in a cycle or two if I can). The madness continues :) Have a great Wednesday!
