A Challenging Friday...

OK - so my Friday hasn't been that challenging - but my cards for today sure were - LOL!! Here are a couple of cards I made for 2 different challenges over at SplitCoast Stampers - I am fast becoming addicted to challenges - they are SO much fun!!
This first card is a Riley card I made for the Hanna Stamps Friday challenge - the challenge today was a sketch challenge by Amanda (Sewell) - it's an awesome sketch - here is the link...http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=371208 - I hope you will pop on over and play with us this week!! I used Witch Riley for my card - I LOVE Halloween and realized I hadn't used my Halloween Rileys enough - so you may see a lot of cards with them over the next few days - tee hee...I colored him in with Copics and added a bit of Stickles to the stars and the moon. The paper is from the Die Cuts With a View Halloween Glitter stack and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. The broom, star, and moon are all buttons from my stash (thanks to my dear friend, Jennifer, who just sent me some more awesome Halloween buttons!!;)) - and the sentiment is from a Studio G clear $1 stamp set from Michael's.

This second card is for today's Limited Supplies challenge over on SCS - LSC#180 - what a fun challenge! Today's challenge was to create a "Lunch Note" - a little ATC sized card to tuck into lunches, briefcases, bags, etc. - just a little note to let someone know you are thinking of them! This was really fun and really quick to make - I am going to be making some more of these to stock up as my boys head back to school over the next couple of weeks. I used the Stampendous "School Changito" clear set from Archiver's for this little card. I stamped the "A+" and the apple in Brilliance Moonlight White ink onto black cardstock for the background from this set. I stamped the little lunchbox and the rest of the images onton white cardstock and colored them in with Copics. I cut the lunchbox out with circle nesties and used just a touch of RibbonFX from Hobby Lobby as well. The card measures 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches - here is the link to the challenge for more info...http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=371092 Thanks so much for stopping by - hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
