The Paper Players Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone!

Today Sandy has a sketch challenge for us at The Paper Players:

I made a baby card with Taylored Expressions Little Bits Rocking Horse. I set him on top of the die sentiment from....from where?  I don't know! I have had the die cut a long time, and have no idea where it came from. But it sure is cute. If anyone recognizes it, let me know!

Then I backed it all on some scalloped Tutti Design rectangles.

I've been making quite a few baby cards lately for neighbors and family....I LOVE making them.

Dies R Us Valentine Tags

Hi everyone! 

The challenge today at Dies R Us is," Tag You're It!"

Our Store
I really had fun with this! One day while I was cruising the isles at Target, I saw a big container of Valentine chip boards. They were too cute to pass up.

I've been using them for all sorts of cards and projects. Today I'm sharing the ones I used for my tags, along with Tutti Design shapes. I love the new nesting shapes and sizes, just perfect for so many projects.

I used Tutti's dotted nesting square here....

the scalloped stitched nesting rectangles....

and the scalloped stitched nesting circles.

All I did was cut and adhere! I did use my glue gun for the chipboard, so it would really stay in place. Then I tied on some bakers twine.

Here's a list of the dies I used that you can find at Dies R Us:

Head on over to Dies R Us challenge blog and play along! 
We would love to have you join us!

The Male Room Sports/Winter Olympics Challenge

Today I'm guest designing over at The Male Room. Yay!

The theme is, "Sport/Winter Olympics."

Since I'm a Minnesota girl, I made a couple of Minnesota Viking Football cards. We had a really great season this year, and also hosted the Super Bowl, so much fun!

I started out with some Vikings paper I found at our local craft store, and did some layering. The helmet and letters GO are from Cheery Lynn.

Here's the inside of my card:

The football and heart are also from Cheery Lynn, and the letters SKOL are cut out from Lil Inker stitched letter dies.

SKOL means cheers or good health. Skal was a bowl that was often filled with beer and shared among friends, and it became a way of saying, "Cheers!"

Here's the fight song lyrics:

Skol Vikings, let's win this game,

Skol Vikings, honor your name,
Go get that first down,
Then get a touchdown.
Rock 'em . . . Sock 'em
Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!
Go Vikings, run up the score,
You'll hear us yell for more. . .
Skol Vikings, let's go!

Actually SKOL is spelled Skal with a circle above the a, or skaal in Norwegian. It just so happens my maiden name is Skaaland, and this is our ancestors village in Norway I hope to visit some day!

My second card is also made with the same papers and dies:

Here's the inside of this card:

I sure had fun making this Viking card set for The Male Room.
 I hope you will join us!
