Some More Cards...

I just wanted to drop in real quick and share some cards I made today. I've been down in the dumps without much motivation lately, so last night I cleaned up the office. I figured a clean room begs for a mess right? So maybe if I clean, I will want to mess it up a bit. And, guess what?--It worked!
This one is a card I made for my soon to be nine year-old nephew, Ryan. I've had the design in my head for days, mostly due to this week's sketch at Splitcoast Stampers, but again, no motivation. Thank goodness I got it back because his party is tomorrow lol.
I was going to try making a card to look like a game paddle because he is having a gaming party. But, I just couldn't really wrap my head around how to start it or make it look real. And when that happens, it's usually a disaster.
Plus, I have this little Bugaboo Stamps dragon, Clyde, that I specifically downloaded to make a card for Ryan. Isn't he adorable? I actually added glitter to his wings after I took the picture too.

Then, since I had mojo, I decided to grab this Gavin Ghost freebie over at Dude Time Doodles and give their challenge a go. They've partnered up with Fetch-A-Sketch this week, so the layout is the FAS challenge sketch for this week as well.
I don't know if I like this card or not. Acutally, I think I do like it, I just never send Halloween cards. Who really does that? But, if I remember, I will send this to my niece and nephew on Halloween week.
I wanted to copy my friend, Nana Connie's, sentiment on her Gavin card. But I didn't know if that would just be lame to enter in a challenge where she was on the DT. You should look at her card here. I just love the sentiment.

And, finally, I decided to case a card I saw on Kristina Werner's blog here. I just love her style. And this card looked so easy that I just had to do it. It took like 10 minutes to make, no lie. I hope she's ok with people totally casing her. I think she must be since she gives tutorials on how to do just that lol.

Well, that's what I accomplished today. I was going to go to the store and get my prescription filled, but I can do that tomorrow lol.
If  you are interested in the products used to make these cards, I'm too lazy to post them here lol. But, you can find them here in my gallery at Splitcoast Stampers.

Shelly, I dearly love your Gavin the Ghost card! So glad you played along at Dude Time Doodles this week. You could have borrowed my sentiment and I would have been very flattered! Good luck on the challenge and I want to see you here again lots of times! :-)
