A friend of mine just had a bright and beautiful bouncing baby boy. I decided to make another baby buggy card for the occasion and SCS Sketch Challenge 391 is just the perfect sketch for the design. I dipped into my stash of retired SU cardstock colors and DP. I love the bright colors in the DP and they are just right for a summer baby boy. I really miss Gable Green, Green Galore and Marigold Morning, but I'm glad Tempting Turquoise is still around.
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: WW, Marigold Morning, Green Galore, Gable Green, Tempting Turquoise, DP

This card was made for someone who recently graduated from a local community college and is transferring to a university to further his studies. I chose to CASE this card by NWstamper for the clean and simple style and it works well for a guy. The layered stars I made using my Cricut.
Stamps: All Year Cheer I
Paper: WW, Handsome Hunter

Emily Keaton. She has so many beautiful cards in her gallery but this one immediately caught my eye. I love how Emily used Prisma Pencils on colored cardstock. I primarily use my Prismas on white cardstock and blend with Goo-Gone but I was encouraged to try a little different technique. The image I chose is an outline stamp from the retired but favorite SU Soft Summer set. The colors are from SCS Color Challenge 377: Certainly Celery, Soft Suede and Blushing Bride. I used Deconstructed Sketch 46 which fit perfectly. I left off the sentiment because this card would work for a birthday, sympathy, encouragement, or gratitude.

My youngest niece, Little Munchkin, turned 2 early this month and this is the birthday card I made for her. I'm late posting this because I have not given it to her yet. I left for a mission trip to Honduras on her birthday and returned last week. I have not seen Little Munchkin yet so I still have her gifts and card. I feel like a terrible aunt. Fortunately because she is 2 she won't understand that I am late.
The background is the negative from hearts that I cut out with my Cricut. I used my retiring SU Build-A-Bear dies for the main image. The heart is one from the Cricut that I covered with red stickles.
