Fresh Squeezed Stamps' Squeeze a Palooza is back and this month the theme is spring. I used Soda-lighted and some older Basic Grey Hello Luscious supplies. This is my third entry. I loved the soda bottle vase pic shared as inspiration. There's at least two chances to win but the more people who play along the more chances to win so check it out. I'm also linking this up to the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.

Fresh Squeezed Stamps' Squeeze a Palooza is back and this month the theme is spring. I used The Sweet Life and some older Basic Grey Hello Luscious supplies. This is my second entry. I was already playing with the bees and I just adore them so much so another card was born. There's at least two chances to win but the more people who play along the more chances to win so check it out. I'm also linking this up to the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.

It's time for a new challenge at Anything But a Card. Challenge 18 is to make an ATC. I've never made an ATC before but I understand it's supposed to be a small standalone piece of artwork. So I decided to make a little scene with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This set is Critters in the Forest.

Hello! It's time for a new challenge at Anything But a Card. Challenge 17 brings "APRIL SHOWERS". For this challenge April Showers - create anything with a WATER theme including mermaids, beaches, seas, the color of seas/oceans, thunderstorms, rainbows, streams, rivers, ponds, snow, spring showers, umbrella, fountains, waterfalls. I went a little unconventional with a layout about a water park adventure from our family trip to Florida. Can't wait to see so other fabulous projects.

I've been focusing on using up stash and creating some cards for Operation Write Home. Here is a pile of masculine (for little boys) cards I made over my spring break. There's mostly Echo Park stickers and Cosmo Cricket paper and some Avocado Arts stamps. You can clearly see some birthday cards so I'm linking this up at the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog. Happy 4th birthday to the challenge site!

Hello! I'm here to share the latest Anything But a Card challenge. For Challenge 16 we are asking for something inspired! This means create something inspired by someone you admire....can be anyone -and doesn't have to be art related. This may mean a collage of quotes or you could do something inspired by Tim Holtz- techniques. Today I'm sharing a LO inspired by Jana Eubank. I love to use sketches to start my scrapbook pages even though they don't always stick that close to the sketch. I love Jana Eubank's sketches and am inspired by her interpretations. Here's a link to her blog and her sketch blog. Below you can see some of the quick cards I created with my layout scraps.

Fresh Squeezed Stamps has issued their monthly challenge entitled Squeeze A Palooza and this month the theme is Easter. I didn't have any Easter themed stamps from Fresh Squeezed stamps but I printed off the free digi sentiment and combined it with Weather Through and The Sweet Life. It may not be very traditional but I think it turned out quite cute.
I'm sharing an entry into the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge. I used a free star digi stamp although I did buy my first set of Paper Smooches stamps last weekend. This card will be going into my next box to Operation Write Home as an Any Hero card. I encourage any and all card makers to create and send Any Hero mail. It will be sure to brighten the day of a hard working military man or woman and can give you a reason to use up some stash. The best part, Paper Smooches has a fantastic set that benefits Operation Write Home called Circle of Honor. A definite on my wish list!
Below is my first box of Operation Write Home cards. It included 53 pieces of Any Hero mail along with 269 cards for heroes to send home but I hope to beat that Any Hero number with the next box my mom and I are working on.

Hello! I'm here to share the latest Anything But a Card challenge. For Challenge 15 we are asking for something Spring-y or spring colors, or Alice in Wonderland! I created these super simple Easter baskets. I mounted these adorable felt bunnies over the hearts on what were once valentine boxes. When shopping clearance after a holiday always think outside the box.
