Why can't I stop...

I can't stop making cards.  I've had so much fun today, making more shakers, and then trying some cards for a few other challenges.

This one is for the Kristina Werner Color Inspiration 47.  I am not usually a big fan of orange - but I like the orange brown combination.

This card is for the Caardvarks Hero Arts Challenge.  Even though I am not very good with sketches, I was so excited to win the last challenge with my bus critter card, I thought I'd have a go. 


This is a picture I made for one of my work colleagues.  She loves butterflies and is such a lovely lovely person, I thought I'd make her a butterfly collage.

These shaker cards were so much fun to make.  Hero Arts sent me this message set for my last Honorable Mention.  I decided to change the sentiments on each as a bit of a challenge.  I'm quite pleased with the way they turned out.  I like the Screen Shadow stamp effect.

And lastly, I made this while still in my pyjamas this morning.  I saw Kathy's super fun Jelly Belly card here and instantly thought of Hundreds and Thousands and cupcakes.  This one shakes brilliantly.

I wish I could say I was exhausted after all of this, but I'm not.  Maybe one more before I go to sleep :)

Just stopped by your blog - and wow - you have some really fantastic stuff. I will definitely check back more often. I really love all your recent cards with the HA tree stamps - and your KW challenge card is no exception. Simple, beautiful and elegant (3 of my favorite adjectives). Congrats on the top 20!

What lovely cards! Question regarding the card you did for Caardvarks (you called it the "bus critter card): was that a card stock or a stamp? I like the off-center placement as well!

I made the bus myself Abie, using a template from Clipart I think. I hand cut the windows etc. then added the animals. Hope this helps.
