A couple of challenge cards!

Well, I meant to get these uploaded yesterday, but had one of them headaches from you know where, woke up with it and it would just NOT go away! I think I tried every over the counter medication there was, lol! My SIL finally gave me a pain pill, a kind I had taken before so I knew it was ok, and I took half of it and it knocked it out. Better than having to go to ER to get a shot, which I was almost to that point of doing. But all is better in the head area today, thank goodness!!

I made this card for Sharon's Stamp Simple Challenge, to make a card using black ink only and for Taylor's Cupcake sketch challenge, (late getting it up though). The butterfly is sparkly in real life, I went over most of it with a copic spica glitter pen in black too. Here it is:



I just love this color combo, pink/black/kraft/white! One of my favorites right now! I've been using alot of pink lately it seems, lol! I'll try to get off that soon, haha!

And I also alterd another 2yr planner and I made this one with my sister Kelli in mind, used her favorite colors on it:



Although, I am tempted to keep this one myself! I really like how it turned out. She might have to bribe me for this one...hear that Kelli? ROFL! I am going to have to go to her house and get her to set up a blog..or just set it up myself and show her how to do it. She has more stamping stuff than I do and never shows her stuff! I call some of my cards 'kelli cards', because she leans toward the CAS cards more than I do, although I love that style too! But instead of calling them CAS cards, when me and her talk, I tell her I made a KelliCard today go look, lol! Just a little inside joke thing there, lol.

Ok, off to do some creating today I hope! Have a wonderful Tuesday!
