I'm still at it!

This card is for the SC351 sketch challenge found here. That's green galore card stock I used with the black, and a CB embossing folder.I used a sentiment from MFP and layered it with SU word window and fancy label punches.
This is for another Stars & Stamps challenge sponsored by Michelle's Scrap where "anything goes." I used one of Sandy's free state digis that's available from OWH. This one is Kansas and I used a new Sizzix diamond ef that I won from CircleB Enterprises for playing a previous challenge at Stars & Stamps. (thanks Veronica!) I colored it with Copics and added a chipboard button with bakers twine to the center.
This is for the Sweet Treats challenge over at the Stars & Stamps blog. This challenge is sponsored by Michelle Perkett Studio. I created the sweet treats by using MS cupcake punch, and used some scraps of PTI dp and pink cardstock. I also used an EK chain punch and SU! fancy scalloped border punch. Sentiment by Hero Arts. Quick and easy for this one!
And here is another card done for the Missouri state digi contest. Sandy drew this gorgeous digi of the Missouri state flower and it's free! I used royal purple and shimmer grey cardstock for this, embossing with the Swiss Dots ef, and adding some gray ribbon. The image was colored with Copics.
I think I've turned into a card-making maniac with OWH's birthday celebration! LOL
I'll have a new Crazy4Cocoa challenge for you tomorrow, so stay tuned, and thanks for stopping by!

Wow, Carol! You have been going after those challenges!! Love your cards. I'll have to check out SC 351 sketch. It looks like a great sketch (I think Sandy Allnock did a card along those lines during the summer and I wanted to make one.) Your Missouri state digi came out awesome - very elegant card. Gotta love the birthday cupcakes too so cute with the rickrack. :)

Carol, all fabulous cards. Love the simplicity of the first card and that color combo is gorgeous. Your second card is terrific with that new ef and of course your coloring is perfect. Your S & S card is just delicious and yummy and your Missouri state flower card is just beautiful. You do Missouri proud. LOL. I know your birthday is a few days away yet, but I wanted to make sure you received it in plenty of time. If I don't talk to you before then, Have a wonderful Sunday.
