lots of pink

Here's another card I made this morning. The butterfly is a stamp I bought a couple of weeks ago from Michaels. I've tried the 'kissing' technique on it and think it turned out pretty good. The cute spotty backing paper is from GTC Crafty Corner. I'm entering this into 3 challenges:

B is for Blue

I haven't been making cards for a while. Last week we had our 22 month old granddaughter with us for 4 days (will post about that later) and this week we have our grandson Thomas with us. Thomas is almost 8 and loves to make cards with his gramma! So I was able to make this one last night. I used my birdie stamp that I bought from Michaels a couple of weeks ago. I colored them with 2 shades of blue and then used my OMS. I'm entering this in 2 challenges:

Dressing Up

I liked the sketch at Truly Scrumptious and thought I'd give it a try. I didn't have this particular template so I made my own template. The other half of T.S. challenge was to use a stamp that you hadn't used in a while. This stamp is from Inkadinkado Inc. and once I pulled it out to use I stamped a few in different colors to play with. Along with entering this at T. S. I'm entering it in 3 other challenges:
