I started this card with the Sketch Saturday sketch. I knew I wanted to put butterflies in the place of the flowers as soon as I saw it and the challenge this week at Stamp Something is butterflies (or bugs or other wing things). The challenge this week at Stampin for the Weekend is masking. When I saw it, I did not plan to participate, but what did I do with these flowers? Masking! So, this is how my card came together.

Next is another card using die cut corners. This card is for Digital Tuesday Challenge. It's Christmas in July. My image is from Victoria Case Art Designs. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils. The papers are from my scrap stash and are so old I cannot tell you what company they are from. The sketch for this card is from Simon Says Challenge.
Next is a card I made for the Pink Elephant challenge #24- animals. This is my first time playing in this challenge, but I will check in more often as there is some great talent over there. I used a brand new stamp that I won in a OCC challenge from Dog Gone Stamps- birthday Betsy. I used BasicGrey paper again- archaic. I used some dog brads from Around the Block. My layout is the sketch from Stamps and Smiles - Fresh Batch .
Thanks for looking. I'll be back in a bit to post some more cards I made this weekend, but I gotta go link these up. I'm running close to the deadlines for the challenges.

Only on my cards, lol! I've got two cards to share today that I managed to get done over the weekend. First is one using the sketch from Mojo Monday 95 combined with the red, black and white color challenge at StampTV. I colored the flower stamp with Marvy Markers and then stamped it. I filled in the flowers and leaves with prismacolor pencils. The large red panel was embossed with a Sizzix texture plate.
Card size: 6.5 x 5 in.
Next is a card I made for a new challenge I discovered - Digital Tuesday Challenge. Digi stamps are beginning to be very popular and I discovered this challenge blog last week. Along with a digi stamp you are to use 2 design papers and 3 embellishments. I used three acrylic stones, three punched flowers and three button brads for embellishments. Now that I've said that, I'm now sure it really meets the criteria, that may be more than three, but still it's groups of threes. I colored my image with prismacolor pencils and OMS. The card design is based on the sketch which is the challenge at Stamp Something this week. I also chose the strawberries for Simon Says summer fruits challenge.
Stamp: Sammy Squirrel eats strawberries by digitalstampoasis
Paper: BasicGrey Lime Ricky
Accents: Brads, acrylic stones, daisy punch
Card size: 5.5 x 4.25 in.

We took a 17 hour road trip (one way!) over the Fourth of July weekend to pick up this beautiful little girl. Recovering from the trip and getting her settled into her new home and schedule has taken up a lot of my time. But she is so worth it. Our beloved Tarra (you can see her here) passed away at the first of June. We miss her but this little stinker has brought lots of joy back.
