MFT Sketch Challenge #301 & Color Challenge #54

Here's another thank you card and another chance to play along with not one but two MFT challenges that are happening right now, the color challenge and the sketch challenge! One friend got Sonny an orange dinosaur for his birthday gift so I knew right away that I was going to be making an orange dinosaur card! I was able to snag this adorable "You're Rawr-some" set when it was on sale. I added a Lawn Fawn Hat and some balloons from a Mama Elephant set I had and Wa-lah! I think it turned out pretty darn cute! Here are the two challenges I'm playing along with:

And here's my card:

MFT Sketch Challenge #301

I got Harvest Mouse last year when everyone was making the most adorable cards with it, but I got it too late to make fall I was dying to pull it out this year to make some :) Here is my first card with this adorable set! I used it to play along with this week's sketch challenge:


I'm always in need of thank you notes (that's a good thing!). This time for Sonny's 3rd birthday which just passed this past Sunday, there are so many people that were so thoughtful and I want to make sure they know they are appreciated :) 

Sentiment is from Avery Elle, Harvest Mouse & die are from MFT
Cardstock is PTI and patterned paper is Lawn Fawn

12 Kits of Occasions September 2016

So this kit came in its own BOX! It was so full of TONS of paper, die cuts, embellishments, etc. I had high hopes of making at least 8 or so cards, but life got in the way and I only made 4 this month, but I'm telling you, I could have made SO many! Jeanne totally spoiled us, and I just loved the cute images :) Here are the cards I was able to create:





Make sure to go check out the cards that all the other ladies created, too!

MFT Superstar Challenge 2016

I thought I'd have time to create several cards for the MFT superstar challenge, but hey, at least I got one in :) Its going to be stiff competition, some of those cards submitted are downright amazing! I used two of my newer sets to create this card. For the leaves I embossed them in white on black card stock and they looked spooky enough for this Halloween card. Good luck everyone! What a thrill it would be to be one of the winners!

MFT Color Challenge #53

Got to play with more of the new release! My parents came to watch my son a couple of weeks ago while his daycare was on vacation, he had the BEST time! So I thought this sentiment was perfect :) And hey that scarecrow is just too cute, isn't he?

MFT Sketch Challenge #297 (take 2) & Color Challenge #53

Got to play with my new hedgehogs! Love them :) If I made this card again, however, I wouldn't do the hedgehog on the kraft. I do love how the leaves turned out on the kraft, though! I feel like the hedgehog is too light.

My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #297

Back at it again! I've had the creative juices flowing. I've been cleaning up after each card and that has really helped. I used to leave it all out to where I had no room left on my desk or had no empty blocks, etc. Hopefully I keep this going because I'm on a roll!
