MPS Father's Day Challenge

My Father's Day Card for the MPS Challenge. We love football so I thought this would be a good one. Next best thing to an ND football card. :) Used DS to weld the Blackout football from Sports Mania together (flipped one so that they fold together correctly) and then cut the football out at 5 1/4". Used Plantin Schoolbook to make the words. All colored paper is Core'dinations cardstock.

Soccer Picnic Loot Bags

Loot bags for the soccer team...also using Sports Mania cartridge.

Coach Card

Made this card for the soccer coach for the end of the 7-0 season they had. Used Sports Mania for the soccer balls & 'coach' and then created the 'You're the Best' on DS with the A Child's Year cartridge.

MPS National Scrapbook Day Challenges

So, there were 12 total challenges in 12 hours. I only completed 10 of them. I wanted to do them all but, I am sooo tired and just want to sleep. This is the second time I have done any challenge so, doing 10 of them is fantastic!!! Thanks Robyn at MPS for the challenge!

MPS Challenge #9 - A Shaped Card

The Ice cream cone!!!

MPS Challenge #8 - Monochromatic

Here was my stab at monochromatic....not my favorite at all but, a neutral and a color....

MPS Challenge #4 - Using your least favorite Cartridge

So, I used Tie the Knot for this card. It is not my least favorite but, I don't use it much so, I took the leap for something un-wedding related. It looks better in person with the pearl finished white paper behind the cherry blossom branch!

MPS Challenge #12 - An Animal Card

I have been wanting to cut this one for a while. I am really happy with how it turned out!!!

MPS Challenge #11 - use the colors of the Rainbow

Love this one!

MPS Challenge #10 - a card with a flower...or springy

Here is my creation using a flower. Really like the Citrus paper stack (maybe DCWV..will have to check that out)

MPS Challenge #6 - a card for a kid

Not sure which kid yet but, here's my gecko creation!

MPS Challenge #3 - Using something unusual

For this challenge, I used some of my wrapping stash....raffia ribbon for the vines that the monkey's are 'swinging' on.

MPS Challenge #2 - Using scraps

So, the 'card' sheet wasn't scraps but, the rest was. =)

MPS Mother's Card Challenge

A card for Mom!
