A couple challenges - SSS11 and CCC 47

I have two things to share with you today. The first is a card for 2 different challenge blogs. I was able to do both with one card. Always a plus! The second card is a sample of one of the "sets" of thank you notes I will be making for my SIL's baby shower gift. (As I mentioned before I am making her between 50 and 75 thank you notes for her as a gift.)

So...the first card is for The Sweet Stop challenge sketch blog(SSS11), and the Cupcake Craft Challenge (CCC47) blog(which was supposed to end and is now going to continue, read more about that on the blog link above!!!). I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop and the color challenge from CCC. Here is what I came up with.

As you can see the color challenge was black and white. I used the Sweet and Sassy newly released stamp set "Gone Buggy", which is ADORABLE! I layered black CS on white CS. I used a scalloped circle punch on white, and layered it with a black circle. Then added white bitty blossoms. I made my own background paper for the strip on the bottom portion. I used the TAC Stamp of the Month from April '09 Floral Vines. The bug and saying are both from the set mentioned above. And no card is complete without some sort of sparkly and shine! So I added some stickles to the antennas and on some of the flowers on the bottom strip. I also used pearl stickles on the bug's wings.

My next card is the first of the set of thank yous.

I used a 1" strip of DSP from a set I got at Jo-An's. It is a cute set of baby boy papers...which is TOTALLY foreign to me as a mother of 3 The little blue square is cut and embossed with a cuttlebug die that came with the machine when I bought it. It is a little hard to see, but it is a stamp with a baby carriage on it. The sentiment is from TAC "ordinary greetings".

That is it for today. Thanks for stopping by!
