Three challenges, one theme, one paper and a broken booby! Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

I finally plopped down in my studio last night and created three simple sympathy cards from one paper pack - DCWV's La Creme - one of my favorites that isn't CTMH.  To make it even simpler, I searched my bookmarked sites for three sketch challenges.  The result is three cards in less than an hour and a half - probably a record for me...ha!

First I used Jen's SFYTT (Sketch For You To Try).


Paper:  DCWV La Creme, CTMH Black Cardstock
Stamp: Flourishes
Ink:  Versafine Black
Accessories: CTMH FLower, DCWV La Creme Flower

Next I used Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch this week - Mojo130.  I probably should have put something behind the pearl (in the center of the flower)....may go back and do that.


Paper:  DCWV La Creme, CTMH Black Cardstock
Stamp: Verve
Ink:  Versafine Black
Accessories:  CTMH Flower, CDWV La Creme Paisley
Tools: Fiskars Scallop Punch

Notice a theme here?  I'm using the same supplies, just mixing them up a bit.  

Then I had to search a little more and came up with a sketch from a site that is new to me - SkippingStonesDesign.

I really love the sketch, and I just changed it up a tiny bit by placing my ribbon horizontally rather than vertically.  This was not a design choice, but necessitated by my poor stamping at the bottom of the panel!  You can probably see where I messed up my leaves (covered by the bow and charm) if you click on the image.


Paper;  DCWV La Creme, CTMH Black Cardstock
Stamps: Verve
Ink:  Versafine Black
Accessories: CTMH Ribbon, Dollar Store Charm
Tools: Fiskars Scallop Punch

Now.  About the broken booby.  I am a klutz and always in a hurry, not watching where I am going...you get the idea.  So I fell, good and hard!  Bruised knees, forearms, trunk, ego......and for the first time, bruised booby!  Yep, it is so big (the bruise - tee hee) that it looks like someone threw a cantaloupe a my chest at 50 mph.  Oh, the agony!  Oh, the pain!  Oh, the humiliation!!!  The worst part is that I can't show anyone, so you have to take my word for it!!!

Good grief.

Your cards are gorgeous, Deb. I love them all and share your passion for that particular DCWV paper pad.

You poor dear! You must have taken quite a tumble. Ouch. I hope you are on the mend and feeling better. Take care.

LOVE your cards, Deb!

As for the booby.....get out your fine tip black pen and make the bruise a new tattoo....only you'll know you fell!

Hey girlfriend, sorry to hear about your boo boo booby or is that booby boo boo. You must have regained your energy to have taken a tumble. Your cards are beautiful. I need to work on a sympathy card this weekend. I also have to make some flower pens. I forgot the green tape though. You know the pens that people don't try to stick in their pocket or purse or walk off with. What's another trip to Walmart, anyway.
