Pre-National Scrapbooking Day

It's that time of year again and this time around I am taking advantage of the weekend (I decided mine is starting today, not tomorrow)...and am making cards for various online challenges. It's been a while since I have the opportunity to do such and thought it would be fun to do again. After all, I've been wanting to this long enough already.

Theme for today (and probably tomorrow as well) is WEDDING CARDS! With quite a few of my cousins getting married this year, I felt it would be a good idea to get a head start on making cards for them instead of pushing them off till the last minute.

First things first, here is my second attempt at making an easel card, and this one turned out a lot better than my first. I actually love this one.

This for two challenges:
Creative Inspiration's challenge is to make an Easel Card
Cute Card Thursday's challenge was to make something on our own. I created the calla lily and the butterfly trail.

& Like every time I sit down to create cards, I end up making something that doesn't fit the theme I set before myself. The stamped image is a stamp a friend sent mom. Naturally it had to be used. *smile

Charisma Cardz Challenge was the inspiration for this card when being asked to create a girly card with flowers. Think this is girly enough? *smile.

Then we're onto adding another wedding card to the love love this one!!!

Delightful Sketches' challenge was to pull out the punches. Oooh yeahh!! This card includes a couple Stampin' Up! punches and an oopsie daisy punch out (fiskar)

And the final creation for today (I think) is very much my style; didn't try to go out of my comfort zone for this. (except for the paper I used...)

Stamp Something's challenge was a sketch...very simple and straight forward. Fun to work with. The image is a stamped image.

Thanks to everyone who created these challenges! You were my inspiration for a very crafty day and I appreciate it. :) Not sure if I would have accomplished anything if it wouldn't have been for you. *smile.
