Some challenge cards and one just for fun!

Hi everyone! I have a three challenge cards to share and a card I DID JUST FOR FUN! Remember when we used to have time to do that? Pfft! Now with Daniel in Kindergarten, my "stamping just for fun" time has pretty much gone out the window -LOL!

First up is my card for this week's SCS Featured Stamper challenge who happened to be RACHEL (aka RachelHope13)!! Of course you all know Rach is my BFF AND a wonderful stamper! I chose her cutie fun tree button card to case. I changed the pattern paper to a piece of Cosmo Cricket, Nutmeg 6x6 pad. I also added some scoring at the bottom and added a tag. All the buttons and burlap string are from Pinkhedgehog Papercrafts.

This next card is for SCS Sketch challenge #252 (are we really up to 252?)!! I like this sketch altho it was a bit tricky chosing the pattern papers to go with the holly leaves and buttons. I used PTI's Holiday Button Bits for this card and the Pattern paper is Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly. The buttons are from the Fuchsia Collection, they are a perfect match to Raspberry Fizz!!

This Christmas card is for Jen's Sketch For you to Try challenge. I don't get to Jen's sketches very often, but I just love them and pring them out every week! This one REALLY caught my eye and I had to make time. So I busted out my Verve set, O Christmas Tree and My Mind's Eye, Merry Days of Christmas. The sentiment is from last year's Ornamental Christmas.

Next up is my Just for Fun card! No challenge, no deadline, I was digging thru my stamp stash and found this cutie $1 Studio G stamp. I bought it ages ago and never used it. I used some Basic Grey, Lemonade scraps and some Creative Cafe felt flowers from my LSS. Man, looking at this photo, I need to edit it again. It looks so dark... anyway, I love this little birdie!
Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned tomorrow for some Friends with Flair Unity goodness!!
