Last night I was able to complete 3 cards for a variety of challenges.  Here they are:

First up is one that was inspired by #216 Tic Tac Toe challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room.

I chose to do the bottom horizontal row which included gingham, flowers and vintage trims. (The lace is vintage found in the attic of my last church in NJ.)

I used card sketch #5 from which I rotated 1/4 turn clockwise.

I am also entering this in Paper Shelter challenge #156 Use That Ribbon! (the center stripes are ribbon as well as the tiny roses and bows) and The Crazy Challenge #170 It's all about the Stripes!

Here is card #1-

For my second card I chose card sketch #4 from  

I am also entering this in Try it on Tuesday Springtime theme challenge and Paper Pretties PWC308 Springtime theme challenge.

Card #2-

and last I used sketch #343 from Mojo Monday which called for a tall and skinny card, Lots of Layers for challenge #17 over at My Mum's Craft Shop, the color palette from card challenge category #1 and Anything Goes challenge #130 at Word Art Wednesday.

The Sketch:

The Color Palette:

and here is my last card-

I hope that you have enjoyed these selections.  Today I am gearing up for National Scrapbook Day crops at a few different sites.  I am really looking forward to getting a lot accomplished and having more to share with you!  As always thanks for stopping by.  All comments gratefully appreciated.


  1. I like all three cards- they are unique and special each in it's own way. I have to say the last card is my favorite- I just love playing with pattern and color and that card does such a good job. Plus, that verse is so encouraging! I'm glad to have found you through Word Art Wednesday's challenge!
