Cards and Challenges

I've been really sick this weekend; pretty much stayed in bed all day yesterday.  But I did manage to craft up a few cards for various purposes.  
First off: "The I Feel the Love Project is making Halloween Cards during the month of September to be given to the kids who live at Casa Pacifica. Each year the facility has a Halloween party for the kids. It is their goal to send a card to each child.  They need to make at least 70 cards.  These kids deserve our love and support!  (Please keep cards fun and cheery, nothing scary or evil)."

Submit your card/s by September 30 to:
Madison Womack
(IFTL) Funky Cards
P.O. Box 1203
Atascadero, CA  93423

I used my silhouette Cameo, Kodak printer, The birds are from Doodle Pantry, the Basics by kaiser craft rhinestone and American Craft ribbon are from Porters, the paper I had in my scrap stash, the stamps are from Joann (I don't know the name of them as I got them as a gift), Recolections foam adhesive mini circles, & Elmer's glitter glue.  And the majority of these cards are made using the sketch from retro sketches on their 28th sketch challenge.

 Items cut out on my Silhouette include: Mason Jars, spiders, Spider web border.

My favorite of the 3 birds I made today... Pirate Parrot

Next on my agenda: 

This pink card is for the Red Carpet Studios Pun Card Challenge. as well as My Creative Time Designer challenge-Recycle it.  
 I used the same Layout sketch as before (from retro sketches) and used a beautiful sheep stamp that I bought at Porters but also has a website on the back for those interested... it is

It says, "Ewe are so Sweet".  The paper is also from my scrap stash so I don't know where each piece came from.  the ribbon is from a baby gift I received over 4 years ago now.

 And Lastly this morning:

the Paper Cabana is having a challenge with Primary colors.  My Daughter is working on Potty Training and has basically got it down so I made this certificate to go along with her big prize (A toy that she's been eyeing at the store) and this cute little paper doll from Lettering Delights Happily Ever After cut it set.  Snow White as well as the Star Ribbon were cut out on my Cameo and include all  the primary colors :)  She's gonna love it!
