Crafty Sundays

Don't you just love Sunday's in the Winter?  After Church I snuggled in the house for some nice crafty time.  It's too cold to do anything outside this time of year, the farm animals had been fed, and I had the entire day to myself. 

First up is a card I made for CardPatterns.  Take a look at Sketch 98:


I also made this card for a Moxie Fab World Challenge - "Gray Is The New Black".  Gray is such a fun color to work with and looks so good with pinks, teals, and any other color you can think of!  I'm so happy gray is getting the attention it deserves.


There is something so clean looking about the color gray, love it!  I used KI Memories Letters, Papertrey Ink Ribbon, and Creative Charms flower and jewels. 

Next up is another Moxie Fab World card for the Monochromatic Challenge:

                                    

Ah, darling pinks.  I used 3 different shades of pink to complete this challenge.  My pinks are brighter than the sample colors, but it was too cute not to post:


I used "lots" of Papertrey Ink Cardstock, Stamps, and Button.  My ribbon is American crafts.  And my cute crochet flowers and pink pearls are Creative Charms.

I also made a LO for Sketchy Thursdays "February Guest Designer Challenge". 


And here is my LO:


I used My Mind's Eye and Echo Park goodies for this LO.  Love the bright Springy colors.  My crochet flowers are Creative Charms.  This challenge had 3 other elements to make it more difficult - 1. Journal, 2. use a heart, 3. use red/or pink.  Fun Fun Fun!
