This summer has been very strange. I usually camp out in my craft cave for a good chunk of time, but for almost the entire month of June I had very little inspiration to work with. I made some stuff, but didn't really get too excited to work on any of it. Part of it was because I was hockey-obsessed until June 24th (go Blackhawks!!), but my mojo got up and went somewhere. Thankfully, with the help of a few challenge blogs, I think I may have actually found it again. Phew! I made this birthday card using the 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge to use stars, and the Seize the Birthday sketch as well. The 10 minute thing was stressful, especially since this was my first time playing along! I totally had everything sketched out ahead of time before I started the timer, then lost the button in the mess of things tossed around on the table and had to dig in the bag to find a new one. Stressful stuff....crafty-world problems :) Cut into a MME Boy Crazy 6x6 pad that I have in my stash of paper to cut in to. After looking at this stack of paper, I have put myself on a pretty strict 6x6 paper pad diet, but this card made me feel better for diving into the hoard. 9 minutes and 15 seconds later,
I have a birthday card for my nephew next month, and I played along with 2 more challenges :) AND I found a place in my house to take a relatively decent picture too! Thanks for stopping by!

CASE Study Challenge and a new sketch challenge from Dahlhouse Designs I discovered while hopping around the blogosphere. Dug out a PTI butterfly and sentiment set, and went to work with an assortment of inks. I used a woodgrain impression plate on the base layer for a little more somethin' somethin'. I just wish I could get a better picture. My photo skillz are seriously lacking these days.... Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!

Joan's blog. 10 minutes later I have 2 more cards for the stash. Can't complain.

a sample from the CASe this Sketch blog. I loved the card from start to finish, so I copied the layout and changed the papers a bit. Went for some Fancy Pants paper that is new in my stash, and 20 minutes later I have 3 of these done, each with a different sentiment. Thanks for stopping by!
