Reminder: Go HERE to get in on my pay it forward!!

I got to play today and make a couple of cards just because. Woo Hoo! I haven't been doing much of that lately. Soon starts back next week and once I get a few things in order I will be playing in my craft room and the message boards alot again. I have really missed it.

Basic Grey challenge blog is back! They have a great sketch for us to use too. I couldn't resist playing with it today.
It is for multiple challenges.
Basic Grey-sketch
Simon Says-buttons and ribbon
Papertake Weekly-4 seasons
Stamp Something-use a charm

supplies-Basic Grey pp, cs??, Making Memories charm, Maya Road chipboard, Ranger distress ink, Thats Jazzy Stamp Dreams stamp (reindeer), Colorbox chalk ink, Martha Stewart stamp (sentiment), colored pencils, ribbon, fishing line

This one is for a friends little boy who was having a hard time with school last year and I wanted to send him a card since he will be going into the 2nd grade soon. So I wanted it to be fun.

This is for several challenges as well.
Creative Card Crew-under the sea
Papertake Weekly-4 seasons
Truly Scrumptious-glitter and sketch
Cupcake Crafts-beach themed
3 Clovers-summery

I had cut the fish and popped him up. I cut circles out of the pp to get the bubbles. I stamped my title wobbly on purpose to help convey movement. I added stickles to the holes in the border punch, to the bubbles and the edges of the fish as well as a few "scales" on the him.

supplies: Doodlebug pp, Bazzill and unknown cs, Ranger stickles, Fiskars punch, Creative Memories circle cutter, Studio G stamps, white gel pen, stazon ink, button

I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend!
