A weekly challenge host posts sketches and another person chooses ad colors.
We make cards using any or all of the sketches.
We make cards using the ad colors with or without using the sketches.
We make cards using the extra credit ideas with or without using the sketches.
Each week's challenge starts on Wednesday.

Anyone is invited to play along.
Basically you make a card (or two or three or more) and post it (them) here to share.
It is a no pressure just for fun challenge.
The cards you share do not have to use the sketches, ad colors and or extra credit ideas they are a starting point to use if you want to BUT for me part of the fun is to try and accomplish the challenge given each week.
It is fun to see if I can come up with one card that fits all of the them (sketch, ad color and extra credit).

I joined a few weeks ago and the ladies here are a kind and supportive group.
Everyone is welcome to join in the fun.

I hope this answers your questions...
Feel free to ask more if you need to.
AND WELCOME!!!
D-

Thanks Sandy for hosting, great sketches.
And thanks Dee for the Ad colors, I should no problem using these colors with
2 grandsons in the Navy.
In fact I just found this morning that one of them had earned/received his Dolphins on March 3rd. He is underway right now (submarine) but earning your Dolphins is a big deal and a lot of work, it took nearly a year. So I will make him a congrats card using the ad colors for when he returns from deployment sometime this summer

Hi Ladies,
Would like to share two Baby cards I made over the week-end. I was inspired by the card Vickie Bryan posted on the "Cards" section of the MB last week. Hers is ADORABLE and I hope she doesn't mind that I scraplifted it. Vickie, thanks for using eyelets on your card. I have NEVER used eyelets on my cards before. Over two years ago, Nanadonna gifted me with a VERY nice complete set of tools for doing this kind of stuff...now thanks to you both I am a BIG fan of eyelets!...THANKS

Donna, congratulations to your grandson! I figured you would like the ad colors this week with your grandsons being in the Navy! Wink What a soft, sweet, adorable baby card! So lovely!

Turtlebug, I just love both of your adorable baby cards! What cart did the umbrella come from?!?! You did a wonderful job on them both!

Sandy,
The umbrella is from the New Arrival cartridge I borrowed from Donna. Vickie used a different cut on hers, it has exactly FIVE tips on it, perfect spacing for the buttons. Whereas the one I used has Nine tips...but it still worked.



FOOTNOTE:
Just went on Vickie's Blog and she used April Showers for the umbrella.

Josie, I guess I forgot to mention how I love how you raised the umbrella off your card! That really is a wonderful look!

Here is my take on sketch 3! I noticed just now how I should have let the glue dry before I took a picture of my card! Sad Oh well!

Here is a quick card I made using sketch #2. I had already cut the papers for another card but changed my mind. Sometimes you just need a bright card in your stash.
The papers are DCWV and then odd bits from my stash of scraps and I used purple glitter glue I got for 50 cents when I was over there and it is its first time in use.

Turtlebug - 2 cute baby cards, I like the buttons and eyelets.

I'm so glad I started visiting this thread a few weeks ago.....so many pretty cards. I'm really enjoying it. I'm also TRYING to get in the gear to join in, but so far it's not going too good.

I do love the challenges for this week. We don't HAVE to use the ad colors, do we? While they are very nice....and I know someone is taking their time to come up with them, I'm not always thinking they're right for what I have to make my cards for at the time.

Thanks to the ladies who take their time for posting the challenges/ad colors each week.

AGAIN, I'm enjoying EVERYTHING I see here. You ladies are very creative and talented! Can't wait to really get into it and maybe be able to join in each week.

I've been LURKING a lot....but I'm a wannabe!! LOL.

Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't been here... super busy now and I'm going to try and get a card or two done over the weekend BEFORE I start purging my craft room. I basically only one week left to pack the stuff we aren't using everyday... so I'm excited and nervous at the same time



SandyPalmer: thank you for hosting this week and with great sketches as well. That cupcake card in the Ad colors is fantastic! I never thought of making a cupcake with patriotic colors. Well done! Wow your sketch 3 is so pretty! There are so many gorgeous elements on this card. LOVE it!

DeeScraps:
thanks for choosing the Ad colors... patriotic colors is always a classic

chrlotgirl52474b9e:
Welcome! I do hope to see you around and I can't wait for you to share your creations with us

Dragonfly50: thank you for that awesome explanation of what we do here BigGrin

Nancy J.: I hope you had fun cutting your doggy's hair. Mine has short hair so I never worry about that but he sure does shed a LOT

*NanaDonna*: congratulations to your grandson for his Dolphin achievement. Gorgeous baby girl card... love love the color combination

TurtleBug: (or JOISE... hee hee) two great variation of the same baby cards... love the colors on both. I love using eyelets but not all the time of course... mostly for tags and such. It's so much easier to use them now too with the Crop-a-dile... I used to use the old eyelet tools of hammering down each

AcrossThePond:
bright cards are right up my alley. Love the combination of colors, I think I ran out of those two particular papers from that stack... it was definitely my second stack that I bought when I started making cards

CricketCMV: take your time and make cards when you get the chance. We don't have to follow the sketches or colors exactly... they're there for inspiration only

The Ad colors are there for inspiration only and we do NOT have to use them. A lot of us have trouble choosing papers sometimes so the Ad colors were added to this challenge a long time ago to help us if needed. I know it takes me a LONG time to choose which papers to use and so sometimes, the Ad colors help me pin point the color combination I'm looking for instead of spending hours and hours flipping through stacks of papers

Hi Ladies,
My sailor grandson might not be coming home for good after all!Crying Although most of his shipmates are going home, he has been given the option to re-up for 3 more yrs.Sad and he is seriously thinking about itScared. JUST in case he does come home for good I made this welcome home card for him. This is his ship (a Carrier) and emblem with his unit the CVN77.

Sketch card #2 in the Ad Colors:
Image - Computer-downloaded
Embossing - Cuttlebug "Stars" folder
Paper - Michael's single sheet rack
Flag - Sticker
Added silver star bling, ribbon and popped the flag with 3-D tape. The red square is glossy cardstock and when I embossed it the paper "cracked" (for lack of a better word) and you can see some of the white showing....any suggestions as to what I can do so this doesn't happen again? I notice embossing does the same thing on vellum.
TFL!!

Is it my imagination or has everyone stepped up a notch or two this go around on the card making so far!?!?! WOW!!!

Sue
, wonderful sketch 2 card! It really looks like a fun celebration card to me!

CricketCMV, I don't always use the ad colors! Sometimes I just don't seem to have the right colors, or it may not go with what I was making at the time! They are just here if you want to use them!

TurtleBug, I have to say, that is one good looking ad color and sketch 2 card! It is very sharp looking! Either way, you are going to knock the socks off your grandson on that card! Wink I knew you and Donna both would like the ad colors this time, and I was right, lol!

Somewhere along the way (not sure where) I thought someone said they lightly misted their paper with water and it made it more plyable.
I'm not sure if it will help I haven't tried it.
You might want to give it a try with a scrap piece of the paper you used to see if it works.?.

The red square is glossy cardstock and when I embossed it the paper "cracked" (for lack of a better word) and you can see some of the white showing....any suggestions as to what I can do so this doesn't happen again? I notice embossing does the same thing on vellum.


This happens to me when the plates, paper, and embossing pads all together are going through the embossing machine too tightly. I have to use thinner plates sometimes. I hope that helps
