Shopping our stash/Through the purple haze

At Shopping our stash they want PUNs on cards.
At through the purple haze challenges they want male cards.

I've made this Father's day card featuring a bottle going Pop for a pop and also included a bottle cap instead of the O.
Hope you "get the pun".

Sketch Saturday.

Here's the sketch at Sketch Saturday.

As you can see I put a Christmas twist on it this time.I added an extra layer across the middle with my spotted tag and a couple of green brads.
I like this sketch and might be mass producing these this year.
I'm also entering this at Crafty Hazelnuts.

Catch the Bug and Mojo Monday

I'm using up long skinny envelopes, so have made these 2 cards.
The first is for Catch the Bug where they have a recipe challenge.
2 papers, 2 ribbons, 2 buttons.

I've followed that recipe and one of my ribbons is ricrac. I hope that is okay.

My second card is for Mojo Monday
The measurements are different but it looks the same.

Mojo Monday Sketch 518 by Julee Tilman |

My next card is for Inkspirational where the word is garden.

Out comes my big chrysanthemum stamp again! I use this more than any other I own.
It always makes a splash on my cards.

I put the background paper through the cuttlebug to emboss it with script.
Next I stamped my flower then fussy cut it out. I adhered it with magic mount so it stands up off the card slightly.
I added a small scrap of patterned paper at the bottom then my sentiment.

Sketchy Boards challenge

I'm entering this last layout for my June kit in Sketchy Boards challenge

I couldn't use their sketch as I only had one sheet of scrapbooking paper plus scraps.
The striped rainbow paper inspired the whole thing.
I've used some of my die cuts including the flamingo on my page too..
The border strip across the bottom matched beautifully. It is an old Sassafrass Lass sticker.

Here's my layout.

Mystical and scraproom combo.

I'm combining 2 challenges with this layout.
I've used and old papermaps sketch for the Scraproom's throwback sketch, and combined it with Mystical's tic tac toe challenge.
I went down the right hand column.

I had a pebbles ink kit which I used most of on this.

I still had some papers left from the kit so made this second layout to enter at Scrapping4fun challenge.
The theme is Birthday. Happy 6th Birthday Scrapping 4 Fun. I was pleased top be part of your DT in the early days.

My layout features my friend's daughter Megan on her 30th Birthday,
I didn't get a cake photo but caught her leaping in the air to high 5 this huge inflatable smiley man.
It summed up her happiness and think it shows that birthdays are worth celebrating.

I used a green velvet ribbon as my feature plus a Sassafrass Lass banner saying love that has been in my stash for maybe 10 years.

Colour throwdown and Freshly made sketches.

I looked at this then at my scraps on my desk and it was as if they could see into my room.
I've layered 3 pattern papers after distressing the edges.
The top blue layer is a tag which was already distressed. I added 2 floral motifs for BFF.
I can see this working for a tweenage girl about 12.

At Freshly made sketches they have this sketch

I put my own interpretation on it and came up with this.
My alphas are bigger, so they go across the middle.

The Male Room

At the male room they want cooking or baking related cards.

I was given some embellishments on Saturday and amongst them was this table setting of food etc.
It was perfect for this challenge!
