Hot air balloon card

I have never tried any color challenge and also I have never combined multiple challenges too. So I thought to try out that this week combining The Play Date Cafe# 47 and Taylored Expression# 128 challenges.

I tried pencil colors, I didn't like the end result some much I put in some much effort I can not resist to put it on these challenges. I have to add some sentiments something like "celebrate you day" I don't have it currently available. I don't have color markers but I think I will buy some now. I used one free digi stamp I found online. Thanks for looking at my card.

Baby Shower card

I have to go to my cousin's baby shower in October so I created this simple card quickly from one scrapbook paper book I had with some letters. I tried to use both blue, pink some green and yellow to make it general. I hope my cousin's family like my creation(and you too ;-)).

I am adding this card for Friday Mashup Color challenge# 2. The colors are little different but isn't the point of challenge is to have fun and make it according to your need? I hope they consider my entry!!

Mojo Monday#156, Let's Ink it up and Creative Cottage

I downloaded some free digital stamps this week so I can try to make some card out of it. I used a color pencils to color my cute Giraffe to make this week's Mojo Monday challenge# 156, Let's Ink it Up and Creative Cottage# 23 .

I went to Michael's crop night last month which was free and I tried some designed border and then just followed some colors for a birthday card. Some how I got the reflection of hide-and-seek glue from border. :-) I hope you enjoyed my creation. Comments appreciated.

Old unscripted sketch# 63!

I just started making cards so I thought to try out some old unscripted sketches too as it allows to add link in it(just it won't be considered towards wining card). I already tried #69 last week and this week I already have my entry for this week's challenge but I also tried sketch #63. I got the sketch from 'This and That' section of Unscripted Sketch and didn't know there were also a color challenge with it so my card will not be eligible for color part.

I have few dull finish card stock which I bought when I was in my Master's 2 years back but I never used them so I try to use them today with a small flower with brad.

The sketch was,

Another unscripted sketch!!

I missed last unscripted sketch challenge so I thought to make one card for sure for this challenge। I asked this time to my husband for which color I should try with and he gave me orange as a color। I had a great fun making this card. Thanks for looking at my card.

I made this flower from some tutorial I looked at online sometime back(I don't have the link right now).

The sketch was,

Long weekend Mojo Monday# 155

I was looking for a long week from long time. These days I have a lot of work in office. We had kind of a crazy plan for this weekend! The plan was so instant that we didn't know where we were going till Saturday 12:00 noon and at 1:00 we were on our way to Lassen Volcanic National Park. We booked cabin which turned out to be RV for four. It was a great fun. We did a hike on Bumpass Hell hike.

Anyways, on Monday after coming back from trip I started working on my Mojo Monday card. Here is what I came up with,

I used hands-free cutout of flower, leaves, bug and used stitches. I hope you enjoy my creation.

I had a great fun making this card. I got inspiration from Debbie's polka dot card.
