Catch Up!!

Good morning everyone!!! I have had such a crazy, busy week...a doctor's appointment for my Mom, cooking, weeding...you get the picture!!! I even managed to squeeze in a haircut...Whoohoo!! My girlfriend was here for three days...we started our nursing careers together many years ago....so we had to go shopping and eat out!! George was more than ready to go fishing this morning...LOL!!! Anyway....

I have several cards I made in the last 2 weeks for Splitcoast challenges that I want share with you today....they all were made with Rubbernecker Stamps. 
The first card I made for last weeks sketch challenge and features several silhouette stamps....I started with a light base stamped with the Rubbernecker French Script stamp. Then I used a variety of wildflower stamps from Rubbernecker and finished with some little red flowers from the Create a Garden set 1 #512 and a sentiment called Sweetest Gift #627-11. The butterfly is punched with a Martha Stewart punch from Soft Sky card stock and pearls were added to the butterfly and the red flowers.

This was for Jeanne's hot pink F4A challenge. I used two new Rubbernecker stamp sets on my card...Floral Square set #632 and Happy Birthday Set Small #624 for the sentiment. The flower images were all stamped with Versafine Onyx Black onto the Melon Mambo cardstock The button and twine from The Twinery finished it off.


This was for Thursday's WT challenge to use banners. My card featured Rubbernecker's Cherry Blossom stamp #609-05. The stamp was colored with markers and stamped on the vanilla card stock. The sentiment was from RN's Fashion Icon's set #456 and the paper was from Anna Griffin. The Twinery twine and Cherry Lynn vine flourish die finished it off.

I will have a couple more cards to show you tomorrow....thanks for stopping by!!!!!

Three fabulous cards, Joan. I think the first one has to be my favourite, just because the colours are my favourite, and I love butterflies. But all three cards are winners xx

Hi Joan, 3 fabulous cards, I love the hot pink and black on your 2nd card, and I think you must have been tapping into Jubilee fever over here with your colour scheme on the 3rd card, lol.

Your first card is my absolute favourite.....beautiful stamping on this, you did a gorgeous job with it. CoB
