Cards in Envy Challenge: “Penny For Your Thoughts”

Happy Monday!  That means it’s time for a new Cards in Envy Challenge and this week our theme is “Penny For Your Thoughts”.   These are cards feature a thought or speech bubble.

Please make sure your card fits into a standard A2 envelope without any large lumps or bumps.  The challenge will run through Sunday, September 3rd and our design team will be choosing their favorite cards to feature on the Cards in Envy blog.

For my card today I used a Taylored Expressions stamp set called “Party Grumplings”.  I also used the “surprise” stamp from My Favorite Things “Beary Special Birthday”, which I stamped in Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Pool.  My design paper is also from My Favorite Things and my grumpling is colored in Copics use YG09, YG07, and YG03. The speech bubble is a stamp and die set also from My Favorite Things.

I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with this week for your “Penny For Your Thoughts” cards for the Cards in Envy Challenge!

Open-Minded Crafting Challenge #34; Recycle Something

Hello crafty friends, it’s Saturday and that means it’s time for a new Open-Minded Crafting Challenge.  This challenge asks you to recycle something.  This can be something you’ve used before, have had for a while, or a material that could be recycled.  I took a rather different approach to the recycle theme, which you will see in my card.  I think you’ll get a chuckle out of it.

As is our custom, we have some wonderful sponsors providing several generous prizes for our randomly chosen winners.  The Design Team will also choose their favorite entries and those cards will be showcased on the Open-Minded Crafting Blog.  The challenge will remain open until Friday, April 24th, and I look forward to seeing what you want to recycle.

Now let’s see what those prizes are:

Andrea's Little PixelsPrize: Choose a Digital Stamp Set

Dr. Digi's House of StampsPrize: 2 Images of Winners Choice

SmearedInkLogo_zps47cb07f1Prize: $15.00 Gift Certificate

Stitchy BearPrize: 3 Images up to $10.00

Now, how about some inspiration on what I am recycling? Grandma! LOL  I think she’s been around long enough to qualify, don’t you? This adorable image is from Stitchy Bear called, “Birthday Girl.”  I colored her with copic markers and used Bazzill’s School Daze 6 x 6 Paper Pack. The oval and flag dies are My Favorite Things and the sentiment is Taylored Expressions “Party Grumplings”.
