This week the Mothers & Daughters Scrapbook challenge is to make a snow themed page. I decided to pick a photo from the first snow we had this year and the kids had a blast playing in the backyard. Fun times. I used sketch #4 from Julie Bonner 52 Sketches...52 Weeks as my base for inspiration.
All the pattern papers I used can be found in the Mothers & Daughters Creations store. My journaling and title I used the computer for some help.

Mothers & Daughters Thursday Challenge

Hey there today's challenge at Mothers & Daughters Creations was a limited supply one. The challenge is: You can not use Nestabilities or Cuttlebug. Can use one patterned paper, cardstock, one embellishment, and two stamps, one of which will be a sentiment. This challenge is getting back to basics and it was a challenge for sure.

I used SU Wild Wasabi as my gren color cardstock and the pattern paper I used is by Bo Bunny. The cute Royal frog is by Imaginisce and check out that sweet sentiment "scatter joy", that is by Daisy Bucket. All these great products can be found at the Mothers & Daughters Creations store.

Be sure to swing by the card design team to see what they did for this limited supply challenge. Also check out the MDC Challenge blog HERE.

HIp Hop Hangover!

It's Friday and that means it's Unity's Hip Hop Hangover. I didn't get a chance to post my Unity Addicts card from Wednesday so here it is today. This week's challenge was to make a simple card. Our challenge picker this week was Kim. Sometimes Less Is More. A card base (you can layer if you like), an image and/or sentiment, and one embellishment.
This second card I wanted to share is one I made a long time ago but I don't think I posted. A simple wedding card in which I paper pieced the cake.

Weekly Sketch Challenge

Are you ready for a new year of fun sketches from Lauren? Here is today's fantastic sketch.

I have to admit those little squares through me for a loop at first, LOL! I pulled out this set I had forever from Cat's Pajamas that I never inked up. It's a cute Valentine themed one. Even though I was thrown for a loop in the end I think it worked out nicely. I used a mix of scraps for this card actually. I think the pattern paper was from last year Target's dollar spot and the pink was just in my stash from an unknown source. I used the scallop circle nesties to cut out the circle.

There you have simple and sweet.

Thanks for stopping by.
