Hump Day is OVER!

Hey guys!
Happy Thursday!  How's the week going for you so far??  We have had such warm lovely weather (80s and sunny) but a cold front has come through and we are in the 60s and it is cloudy and windy.  Burr (lol) 

I wanted to share a couple of things with you today.  First Sketches4all is having an April sketch challenge.  You are required to use this gorgeous Pagemaps sketch:

The theme is Easter or Spring. Use the sketch and you can create a Card or Layout!
They will have one winner for cards and one for LO"S. (Please only choose one) 

Here is the card I made using this sketch:

I think it turned out super cute.  I used spring colors to inspire me and a Anthony and Burt-Hope You Feel Better Soon Stamp from Crafter's Companion.  I added the velvet ribbon with my We R Memory Keepers Sew Ribbon Weave Punch.  I am still having so much fun with those things!! LOL  I had to adjust the punch holes to fit in the space on the bottom.  I'm not sure if you can tell that they are actually a little shorter than the ones on the top?  That fun yummy flower is from Petaloo.

I also wanted to show you this card I made for the April Mother's Day Challenge at Crafter's Companion USA Challenge blog. 

I used the Humphrey-Flowers for You Stamp set.  I adore that little elephant!!  He is just so squishable. ha

I cut out the shapes using a Spellbinders Nestabilities die set.  I tied those two strands of ribbon into a bow on my Ultimate Tool. 

And I colored this little guy with my Spectrum Noir markersThe Crafter's Companion Store just got in MORE new colors and they are going fast.  If you are interested in these awesome markers you better hurry!!  The new colors are in sets of 24.  Go check them out.
These markers are such an unbelieveable value!!  Each markers is currently around $2.10 each!!!!  
And also remember today is the last day to try to win the Sheena A Little Bit Different-Oh Duck stamp set over on the Crafter's Companion USA Blog (US residents only). You have to actually go over there and leave a comment.  Go HERE.

Go on now....
