I've had a fairly productive Sunday

despite feeling like crap. There has been so much flu and colds going around work that I was bound to catch something. I just wish it hadn't happened on my weekend off!!!! So, I had 2 choices..first one was to curl up in a ball and feel sorry for myself and the second was to try to get some cards made. Obviously, I choose the second door!! I found a couple of challenges this afternoon and decided to play along... The first in one by Basic Grey and the only rules were rounded corners and some Basic Grey. Works for me!!! I used my new labels nestibilities and a Prima stamp set. The pp is from Basic Grey Urban Prairie paper pad. I thought this stamp set was so cute I made a second card with it. I used my cuttlebug and sewing machine with this one. This next one is my take on Mojo Monday For this card I used a Making Memories paper pad (Poolside and Greenhouse) It has very yummy papers in it!! And last but not least is a card from a fairly new blog 365 Cards They had a sketch posted so i thought I'd give it a whirl. I used more Basic Grey pp for this one and one of the sizzlets diecuts for the buttons. Well, I think it's to curl up with a blanket for a bit..take care and stay healthy!!!!!

I finally got my card made for

this weeks Mojo Monday.
. I used Daisy Bucket Garden Gate PP, and my trusty cuttlebug. I also used stamps from All Night Media and Hero Arts. I accented the card with Fruit Punch Stickles and ribbon from my stash.

I also got a couple of more cards made..

Ohhh...I am so in love with my Cuttlebug. These cards only took about 15 minutes each to make!! As much as I would love to say these are my original ideas, I'm sure they stem from a sketch, a card, a magazine, or something I've seen in my day that has inspired me in some way.

Hope your having a great weekend and for those of you who get to change your clock tonight, enjoy that extra hour of daylight starting tomorrow night!!! It just one more way of Spring telling us it's on the way!!!!!!!!!!!!

I started this first card

earlier in the week and for the life of me I can't find the blog with the sketch. saying is the card but with no link to the sketch. I'm hoping someone will recognize the sketch and point me to the right blog.

This next one incorporates 2 challenges, one is a Sketch and the other is Monochromatic Card I don't usually make monochromatic cards but I really enjoyed making this one. I love the sketch that was posted and found it very inspirational.

These 2 are just for fun cards as I have some birthdays coming up for my godchildren and thought they were fun. My friend Shirley dropped off a Stampin' Up catalog for me to look at and if you go to page 40 you will see my inspiration for these cards.

And last but not least if my take on Mojo Monday As usual, the sketch is great and there are so many takes on it!! Needless to say, I've had a productive Sunday morning. It just doesn't get much better than this!!!!
Hope your having a great weekend!!
