Challenges and some candy!!!!

I had a very successful stamping weekend and so I have several things to show you. And then I have the blog candy announcement that I promised!

The first card is for a GSG challenge. The challenge was to CASE a layout from the Occasions mini. I CASED the card on page 8.
The DSP is from Bali Breeze. The sentiment comes from an Occasion Mini set called Sassy Suzi. I also used Die Cut Blooms from the mini paired with Flower Fusion and a clear Rhinestone brad from the Pretties kit.

I inked up the Die Cut blooms to give them a little more dimension. I also added some white polka dots with a gel pen.

This next card is for Beate's weekend sketch challenge. I especially loved the challenge this week. As soon as I looked at the sketch, I knew that I wanted to use the new Fresh Cuts stamps. Beate used the same stamp set- but I think I made mine look much different that her beautiful card.

I just has to use the Afternoon Tea DSP AGAIN! I love that stuff and I figure I best use it all I can before it retires at the end of this month. I am also on a soft Sky kick so that is the color I chose for the base and for the ribbon. I had trouble tying that bow- but I think I worked it out! And isn't this silver hodgepodge awesome?!! I hope it makes it to the new catty!

The next card is for SCS featured stamper challenge. As soon as I saw that the featured stamper was Maren Zany not Crazy blog- I knew I needed to participate. I have been stalking her blog since the fall. I am always amazed at how much stamping she is able to do while taking care of three young boys! I chose to CASE this card:

Since I still had the supplies on my desk from the last card- I used them again! I just switched the Soft Sky Ribbon for Groovy Guava.

I kept Maren's layout and just changes the stamps, ribbon, colors, and DSP. I liked how both of these Fresh Cuts cards turned out! It is quickly becoming my favorite stamp set. I will give you more details about my Fresh Cuts class tomorrow. This post is just too long!

Next I want to show you the scrapbook page that I made on Saturday morning. I took the pictures of my son at the pool on Saturday afternoon.

I CASED this particular layout from Jana Wilson. The DSP is Spring Break and I am just loving it! The colors are sooo yummy! I stamped the word "waves" with the Best Friends Lower Alphabet. The journaling is computer generated. I cut the huge circle with my Curvy Cutter. I love that thing! And I used some more of that silver hodgepodge to include the date.

So are you impressed that pictures from this weekend are already in my scrapbook?!

On to the candy:

I am giving away the retired Double Line Doodles stamp set (minus the heart stamp that went missing at some point) a retired Daisy punch and 2 classic ink spots: Purely Pomegranate and Wild Wasabi.
