Hi everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I was able to make it in to my scrapbook room today for more than just playing on the computer, lol. I actually made 3 cards today for 3 challenges and for a gift. I am making a set of 12 note cards for my sister-in-law. Here are 3 of the 12 (the 3 I have completed!). I'm making them in colors that I think she will like. She's a big fan of MacKenzie-Childs so I'm trying to use colors in the way they do.

My 1st challenge was for Friday Sketchers. Claudia did an awesome sketch and I really enjoyed working with it.
I love this black & white's by The yellow embossed paper is called Sunshine Smoothie and is by Cloud9Design. They have some great new paper out. I picked up quite a bit of it this weekend. My bowl of lemons is a Karen Lockhart stamp-love them!! The just a note sentiment stamp is from the CC Designs Boutique Sentiments set that I purchased from All That Scraps. I used the ovaL/stripe stamp and punch from Stampin Up. All cardstock is from Stampin Up.

My 2nd challenge was for Sketch Saturday and was another great sketch.

I used the same Karen Lockhart stamp and all the same dp for this card.

My final card was done for a challenge being hosted by Kimmie on her blog. She has 5 challenges going on right now and this was for challenge 1-which I got in right under the wire, lol. I am a big admirer of her blog and her wonderful work. She provided a sketch and the requirement that you use embossing somewhere on your card. Luckily I had this embossed card stock. I still don't have a machine but after seeing everyone's work I am definitely in the market for one soon!

Again, I used the same card stock, dp and stamps.

Well that is it for today...alot of pictures to scroll through! I have one more card to make using these papers so I will have to be on the lookout for another great sketch.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week.
