More, More, More

In the midnight hour, she cried more, more, more
With a rebel yell, she cried more, more, more.

That would be Billy Idol, Rebel Yell!

And, this is me with more cards that I created over the weekend when I was home alone. I was able to participate with more challenges and oh, how fun it is. Jump For Joy

I'm on a roll with Tracy's Thursday's sketch challenge, this is her 3rd sketch and I was able to participate on all 3... how cool is that? This cute fishing penguin is by A Muse and while she's fishing something for dinner, she's thinking of someone really special... Ummm , who could it be?

Stamps: Fishing Penguin from A Muse Design

Paper: Whisper White, Bashful Blue card stock and Pretty in Pink DSP from Stampin' Up

Ink: StāzOn Jet Black and SU re-inkers

Accessories: Mary Scallop Square Punche, Bashful Blue grossgrain ribbon, Liquid Applique and Crystal Stickles


The second card is for All that Scraps #14 Sketch Challenge. The butterfly is from CC Designs, Beautiful Butterflies. I stamped the image on Whisper White card stock with Timber Brown staz-on ink and matted with Chocolate Chip card stock. The patterned paper is from Autumn Leaves, I was really not happy when I was done with the card, it seems like there's something missing. So, I stamped the butterfly again on the same patterned paper and adhered it on top and added some crystal stickles.The prima flowers are added at the end and topped with adhesive rhinestones.

I sure hope you have a beautiful day!
