Glittery Tuesday- a few challenges to see

I just love this stamp set from Sherrod Studio. It is "Friendship Blessings" and what is my fave technique to do with the large flower is to stamp it 3 times and cut it out from cardstock smaller each time. 3D foam inbetween each layer for extra dimension. Add some glitter and it really gives it personality. Cricut leaf and CTMH sentiment.
SSHHH! This card is for my hubby. Tomorrow is our 15th year of wedded bliss. I always hesitate making him a card b/c I am not sure it is what he would like. He loves my crafting, don't get me wrong. Maybe it is my hangup thinking that only women like homemade greeting cards. Anyway, the sketch is used is from a new site I stopped by today. Mercy's Tuesdays Sketch #37 and I really like the colors that I used. Had these papers out from the weekend since I made a layout for Unscripted for this coming weekend. Don't forget to stop by....wink.wink.... Basic Grey bird paper, the rest of the papers are CTMH, Heartfelt stamp set and Say it in Style stamps also from CTMH. Hollyhock ink, black ink and prisma glitter are CTMH, too.
Lastly, I was going through my sketches and challenges from the last 2 weeks and trying to decide whether to start from scratch or play along anyway after the fact. My inner challenger wouldn't let me toss them so this card is for: Card-a-licious #26, to create a friendship card using the colors pink, orange and green (love love love my K&C0 Sweet Berry papers and found the 3d owls for the same set!) and the sketch that helped me to finish the card is from Inspirational Card Sketches #32. I like this site alot, don't know why I don't do more for the challenges. Put that on my things to do list since the kiddos are in school and I have more time to play.

Happy Tuesday everyone!
