Birthday card challenges

Hello Crafty Friends,
    Had some time today to make some birthday cards. I usually look at different blogs for challenges to get my creativity going. Today I used the Mojo monday sketch #449 as well as House Mouse challenge to use OLD papers and products. My card uses old CTMH paper, my oldest birthday house mouse stamp called My Hats onto you (2011) and my oldest die (the pokadots) and my very first tool, the crimper for the green strip. I'm pretty happy how they turned out! So here is the sketch from mojo Monday....

and here is my card. I rotated the sketch.... Oh and I forgot to mention the spiral clip, my first accessories from CTMH. Cant get them any more and I'm totally hording them :)
I made a second card, slight variation because I cant make two identical..........
I hope you like them, they make me smile :)

Sketch # 161

Hello crafty friends,
   I am amazed that two weeks have gone by and its time for me to submit to this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge  Here is the sketch this week...

This is my card. It is kinda plain but the elements are there. I used the Happy Times paper and stamp set again. I love the gold paper!!

I like how elegant the gold looks... What will you do with the sketch? Hope you can join us!

AHSC # 159

Hello Crafty Friends,
    I just love making cards! And sketch challenges are my favourite way to expand my comfort zone! Todays Sketch at Atlantic Hearts is just perfect for this! So many it is

I flipped my card, thanks to my long time card friend Laura I can not make horizontal cards! lol So here Is my card using the new magical paper pack from Close to my Heart and Safari Ballet stamp set...

My Photography skills are terrible...and another thing I would change is to stamp the image in black. I used whisper and it was defiantly harder to colour and doesn't stand out as much as I like.
Hope you will join us this week....I love seeing everyones cards!
