Throwback Thursday "Cricutless Challenge"

Hello Everyone...I hope you are having a wonderful week!!  Emma over at My Creative Time is having a cricutless challenge using the colors purple, orange, green and black. What a challenge this was for me!! I usually only stamp peachy keen faces and sentiments. Well lucky for me when I bought the new Art Philosophy Cartridge from Close to my Heart I could purchase the stamp set of the month for $5.00 so I thought I would. The stamp set is called Wicked and has many cute images on it. I used 3 of them on this 5 x 7 card. Hope you enjoy my card!!

Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge 59 with a Twist!!

Good Morning Everyone and Happy Labor Day!! I have made a 5 x 7 card for this Peachy Keen challenge the twist was to add buttons. I made this card for my nephew who will be 23 this month. When he was little (4 to 9 years old) we took him camping at least twice a month with us and he loved it so much we decided to invite him along with us this year for his birthday. Since he has gotten older he always tells me he does not want anything for his BDay anymore lets just go out to dinner he says! Well this year I surprised him with a weekend of camping he was soooo excited and we all can't wait to go. We are doing it a little differently this time we rented a cabin because we sold are pop up years ago. Thank you Dad and Mom for house and dog sitting for us while we are away!! Hope you enjoy my card!! To check out the Peachy Keen challenges just click there button on the right side of my blog. Have a safe and fantastic Labor Day!!
