10 Minute Craft Dash + Papertrey Ink Make It Monday + Paper Smooches Sparks

I am trying to sneak in a blog post while Evan does homework & Jack does everything in his power to distract Evan from doing his homework... and I have a feeling my plan is going to backfire on me! I have three cards to post today for three different challenges. First up is a card for the 10 minute craft dash sponsored by Avery Elle:


I used Avery Elle's Blossom's and Blooms and To The Point to create my card... in 9 minutes and 42 seconds! I sketched out the design first, which saved me a lot of time. And I use four different flower stamps with four different Fresh Inks, so I didn't have to clean my stamps until I was finished. The card matches the color swatch better in person... this picture makes it look pink, yellow, and green... but it's really more of a coral color.


Next I have a card for this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday challenge: faux pockets. I used three Christmas stamp sets, Background Basics: Christmas, Holiday Lights, and Stylish Sentiments: Holidays, plus Faux Ribbon on the bow die cut:  



And finally, a card for this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Designer Drafts challenge


I used one of my favorite Paper Smooches stamp sets, Space Cadet, to create a fun outer space themed card. And just like this card, I had to add the little alien to the inside of the space ship. :-)


Chaos is about to erupt in my house, which is a sign I need to wrap this up and tend to my clearly neglected children. Thanks for stopping by!
