I have a couple of cards and an altered item to show you today.
I made them for the Sketches4all Valentine's Decor & Blog Hop.
Nothing like waiting until the last second to enter challenges..right??! ha (The ended 2/10)
First I want to show you one of the jars I got at a thrift store.
I was looking on a Sketches4All DT's blog during the blog hop and noticed this cute idea to make for my kid's teachers.
I've made 3 so far but am only showing you one today. The jar says, "Because of you....I'm a Smartie". And it is filled with Smartie candies. Simple and cute. At least I think so! ha
This jar was kind of short and made decorating it a bit hard. The other two jars I worked on are taller and slimmer. They were easier to work on.
I made this for my kid's teacher but it conveniently worked for Michelle's Altered Item Challenge at S4A.
The next card is one I made for Melissa P's Sketch challenge. I fussy cut the flowers out of some paper from Fancy Pants -Love Birds. The striped paper on the front is actually cut from the cover sheet of the paper pack.
During the blog hop I saw a layout on one of the DT's blogs that had a button heart around the picture....I scraplifted the idea for my card. I think it might have been a bit more difficult to try to get it on a card. And the card is now a bit heavy.
My next card is for Erin' Red & White Challenge. You could only use red and white on your card. It was fun to try to figure that out! I ended up fussy cutting the sentiment and heart out of some DCWV paper I had. The ribbon was from Recollections.
The last one is my cupcake card that I made for Christy's Scraplift/Give some love challenge. I liked the idea of a using a cupcake for a card and saw a fun card made by DT Jessica that had a cute cupcake on it.
I think it turned out pretty cute.
I actually ended up doing all the challenges for this special event at Sketches4all. I had a blast working on them all. And was so happy with all the new faces that showed up and participated!! I had a great turnout on my LOVE SONG Challenge.
I have more creations to show you tomorrow.
