CardzTV Anything Goes Challenge #151

A friend will be celebrating her birthday in a few days, and I decided this afternoon to create her card.  She told me that she saves every card I send to her.  What a compliment that is!

I had no idea what I was going to do, so I picked the number six, went to one of my stamp boxes with the stamps in alphabetical order.  Set #6 was Gorgeous Posies, so I went with it.  My card was inspired by one created by Jenny Moors.  

I am entering this in CardzTV's Anything Goes Challenge #151

#TGIFC337 Sketch Challenge

I am determined to step up my posting, so I bookmarked a bunch of challenge sites.  This card is for the TGIF Challenges!; it's #337. Take a look at the sketch that inspired my card:

I saw a card online that really piqued my interest. The creator used about six bright, happy Stampin' Up! colors to stamp using the Textures and Frames stamp set.  Luckily, I earned that set for free during the recent Sale-a-Bration event. Unfortunately, I don't have the information to point you in the direction of the card that was my inspiration. 

My fingers were so inky from playing with the colors and stamps.  I have at least six panels that I can use on various cards, and when I saw this challenge, I knew that I had to participate!

Be sure to check out the other fantastic cards that are entered in this challenge.

Funky Fold

Dena Rekow (The Creativity Cave) showed this funky fun-fold card on her YouTube Live channel on September 27, 2021.  This is my take on the card.

I wasn't sure what I was going to do or who would get the card.  I decided to make it more masculine, since those are the most difficult cards to design.  Everything is Stampin' Up! products.

Fancy Fold for Thanksgiving

Boy, oh boy! I'm having so much fun with this fun fold challenge.  As I said yesterday, Dena Rekow (The Creativity Cave) showed this fun-fold card on her YouTube Live channel on August 30, 2021.  She challenged her viewers to make one of their own so, of course, I had to try it out.  I love this card!

I decided to branch out and make a Thanksgiving card.  Mostly everything is Stampin' Up! products except for the DSP; it's a paper pack that I've had for about ten years, and every fall I try to use it in some sort of creation.
