Seize the Birthday #11

Hi, everybody! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!
I’ve been trying to get a jump on my Design Team assignments for the upcoming week, but I couldn’t resist playing along with this week’s Seize the Birthday challenge! 
I’m so happy that I got to guest design last week for the masculine challenge! Thanks so much to Lesley and the fabulous ladies on the DT for making me feel welcome! (You can check out my card for the last challenge HERE.)

If you haven’t had a chance to play along with Seize the Birthday, you should! You get to increase your stash of birthday cards for guys and gals, and you’ll have fun, too!

This week’s sketch is for a feminine card, so I paired some soft papers from My Mind’s Eye with this cute little monkey from C.C. Designs, and made:
Supplies: patterned paper (“Nostalgia” mini pad – My Mind’s Eye), image stamp (“Birthday Monkey” – C.C. Designs), sentiment stamp (“Fun Foodies Set” – Your Next Stamp), Copic markers, corner rounder, button, foam tape, kraft cardstock, twine (“Tickled with Teal” – Trendy Twine/Annie’s Paper Boutique), ink (“Espresso Truffle”, “Tuxedo Black” – Memento/Tsukineko.
Here’s the sketch for this challenge:

You’ll find all the details to link up your entry for this challenge at Seize the Birthday, along with the DT’s fabulous creations!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Unscripted Sketches #131

Happy Saturday and welcome back for another Unscripted Sketches challenge! Thanks so much to everybody who played along with us last week! If you didn’t get the chance to play along, I hope you’ll join us this week!
If you’re just finding out about Unscripted Sketches, every Saturday morning we post a sketch for the week. Flip the sketch, rotate it…make a card, a scrapbook page, or anything your imagination comes up with! There’s no right or wrong way, as long as you’re using the Unscripted Sketch as the inspiration and basis of your creation!

Here’s my card:
Supplies: card base, Copic markers, patterned paper (My Mind’s Eye, Bo Bunny Double Dot), image/digi stamp (C.C. Designs – Latte Monkey), sentiment and flower stamps (Paper Smooches – Hot Concoctions set).
And here’s our sketch for this week! I rotated the sketch for my card and added the sentiment to the right side of the card instead of in the middle.
Don’t forget to visit the rest of the Unscripted Sketches Design Team: Arielle, Billie, CherylAnn, Debbie, KathyJo, Linda, Loes, Rudlis, Sarah Kaye, and Susan! They’ve created some simply fabulous things to show you!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I can’t wait to see what you’ll create with this week’s Unscripted Sketch!
