More challenges on Sunday

Happy Sunday! Well for me, it's Laundry Day & Challenge Day. I love to surf SCS and Blogs to find different challenges. This first card is a first for me. It is TECC50 on SCS. The sketch is from She encouraged participants to use cupcakes, so I used 3 different stamp sets. The first one, and most obvious, is Cuppacakeabella. She really is so fun. I used Copics to color her along with Stickles on her dress and a Bella Bauble on the cupcake. Both sentiments are from CTMH. "Hey there Cupcake" is from Cupcake Sprinkles, "Happy Birthday" is from For Every Occasion. The final bitty cupcake is from Penny Black's Critter Party. The original stamp is the one with the 3 mice blowing out the cupcake candle. I just cut the mice off. The cupcake was the right size, so I improvised! The paper is TAC's Catelynne, and the ink is CTMH's Ocean. Okay, I'll try not to be so long winded on this one. It is two challenges in one. I used Jen's sketch challenge and Our Creative Corner's Color Challenge. We were told to choose two shades of blue along with a neutral color. Well, Cocoa (brown) is neutral isn't it? My two blues, I chose from CTMH ... Indian Corn Blue and Moonstruck. I also used their Free Spirit Paper and the new Pretty Pins in the ribbon. The stamp set is Inkadinkado's Birds Galore. And yes I added crystal brads, paper flowers and some ribbon. Ya know I luv to Foo Foo! LOL
Don't know if you know this, but you can double click on an image and see it full screen. If you do this, you must promise not to notice my mistakes!
On a personal note, my friend Saundra came over Friday night. I had such a fun time making cards with her. It really is more fun to make cards or scrapbook with someone else! Ya know my doggies don't talk much, & then know no gossip! LOL
Well, thank you for enduring my ramblings! I hope you enjoy my cards!
Tata for now!

Johna, I had fun too. Let's get together the next time the guys have a guys night. I think they are going to Granite in February. You always give me great ideas and inspire me to come home and make cards. I finished 3 swaps and mailed them today. 2 more to go and then I need to sign up for more. Love, Saundra :)
