I Miss You Like Crazy


Since it's National Scrapbooking Day, OWH has launched a weekend Virtual Card Making Party with challenges throughout the weekend.

Challenge #1 is the monthly OurDailyBreadDesigns.com challenge, and the theme this week is "Missing You." As luck would have it, I made this card a few days ago for OWH, using a great sentiment borrowed from a sweet  friend, so I made a set of cards using all of the sentiments I'd stamped, along with scraps of dsp for the background and flowers. That may look like narrow ribbon across the bottom, but it's actually a border cut from the dsp that I thought was too pretty to throw away, so I used it as a border. I think that's an Inkadinkado sentiment, but I'm not positive. The flowers were done with Carl & Fiskars flower punches, with a dot of liquid pearls in the centers. Here are the rest of the cards I made using scraps in the same design as this card...

I made some with flowers for the ladies, and some with crimped stars for the gentlemen, so there's a bit of an assortment, but they all have the same sentiment.

Challenge #2 is hosted by Paula and her challenge is to make a card for kids using a sketch. Earlier this week, I made a lot of cards for kids and for some of them I used OWH's Sketch #2 which is a great use for scraps, so I had this challenge done with no prior knowledge of what it was going to be! LOL

I printed out some pre-colored digi images from DearieDolls.com for this card, and then printed the sentiment. I used assorted scraps and papers from paper pads, adding a goo punch border to look like the frosting dripping from the spoon. The die was done with a SB labels 25 and the sentiment was done with SU! punches. Here's the rest of the set...



Here's one of the boy images, and I flipped the image panel from the original sketch just so I could make better use of my left-over scraps. I made a few more of these too...

I used 3 different girl and 3 different boy images and made a total of 17 cards for kids. How lucky was I to be able to enter these into the first two challenges!? Now to move on to some more challenges and hopefully tomorrow I can catch up on some of those.

Have fun with the blog hop and enjoy your weekend!! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Great card variety! You're getting pretty good at working in multiples!

Have you made a dent in your scrap bin yet? {grin}

Hi Carol! These are all so great I don;t know where to start... first the 'I miss you like crazy' sentiment is such a great choice of OWH cards and the boy card is so cute but the girl card is truly fabulous! How clever to use the 'drippy' edge punch with that adorable image and how cool that you had it all done and it was a perfect match for the challenge. Thanks for playing in my challenge in the VCMP this weekend.

These are all fabulous cards! I just love those pre-colored images. I'm going to have to check into those since I don't color. My favorite is the the little helper cook. She is just adorable and I love the drippy border punch with her. So cute!

Holy Moly! Do you ever sleep? LOL What an outstanding selection of cards. You're the best.
Yes, I thought that was ribbon on that first card.
The kid's cards are just too cute.

We need a whole new word that is fitting just for you, Carol. A word that means "amazing," tripled! You also give a whole new meaning to the word "inspiring." And flawless work product/quantity? Please. Are you married?

I can only DREAM to be as productive as you. And each and every card is great. Well done!!!!
