Well I had the chance to make some cards yeserday and do laundry.  Some cards I made for sketch challenges over on cafemom and some were just for fun.  The first card is for the Addicted 2 Bellas (group on cafemom) sketch challenge. The challenge was to use the sketch to the right of my card with pink on it and you have to use a bella image. For the circle I used pink, white core paper ran it through my swiss dots cuttlebug folder then took sandpaper to the raised areas to make the white stand out. The next card was for the cute critters club (group on cafemom) and you have to use the sketch to the right of my card and you had to use a critter. I flipped my card to be horizontal instead of vertical so everything would fit.  The next card with a mouse on it, was a rak'd HM image I think I got like 2 years ago and colored it with regular colored pencils before I knew what copics or watercolor pencils were.  The colors don't pop as much, but I feel like I took the time to color it so it should be used.  The next card with the monkey on the beech was for a color challenge over in the cute critter club.  The colors were on a bright summer skirt, and they were orange, yellow, blue, green, pink and like a coral (red-orange).  I didn't have the exact color of pink and the paper I had didn't have any blue on it, so I punched out butterflies from my blue glitter paper.  There is a picture of the inside of the card too.  My last 2 cards were just simple and easy to throw together they are both rak'd stamping bella images.  The one with car on it was colored with glaze pens.  I made it for a friend of my friend Cass, it is a lady who is turning 50, so I think I am going to type up something on the computer and put it on the card.  I was thinking of putting "it is nifty to be 50"
