More cards!!!

I am a card makin' fool this week LOL! Here are three more cards. The first two are for the sketch challenge this week, I used the leftovers from the first card to make the second. The colors are olive, not quite navy and ruby red. The first one has chocolate for the background and the second one has kraft card stock. I bought 2 of Autumn Leaves clear stamps sets and I find it interesting now that I am seeing Stampin Up's new sets, Baroque Motif and Pick a Petal are very similar! That is what I used on these cards. The third card is for the color challenge, coral, celery and chocolate with turquoise optional (of course I used it, it's blue isn't it? LOL!) I used the Serene Sunflower set and stamped it in coral - weird or what? A coral sunflower! I put microbeads over the chocolate center. Looks cool in person. I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss the celery background.

With the Splitcoast website down I am finding I have a lot of spare time! Goes to show me how much time I spend on that website, hmmmm. I got a lot of house work done today anyways! I hope it is back up soon :)

Oh and for those that asked, my son's first swim meet couldn't have gone worse but he was awesome, hung in there and was so good! What happened was a big thunderstorm and rain. They won't let the kids in the pool for 30 minutes after hearing the last sound of thunder. We got there at 4:45 and it got delayed 6 times! They didn't even get in the pool until almost 8pm! His bed time is 8pm! He was worn out and hungry. We didn't bring food with us but I bought him a hot dog. I had no idea they would do this, I guess I thought they would cancel it but no and the kids all were so excited with it being the first meet of the summer. So all in all he seemed to take it all in stride and we will hope for the best for next week!

I keep going back to the first card, it has a 3d effect to it. Pretty cool!! I especially liked the last one, too!! But as always they are all awesome!

Definitely love them all...but I am drawn the colour combo of the third one! I say use BLUE as often as you want because it turns out fabulous every time!!! : )

Glad all went well for your son despite the delays...hopefully that doesn't happen again. How frustrating for all involved!

YAY for housework done and out of the way!!!

Off to look at the rest I missed while I was away!
