Projects of the Week

   This week the crafting bug hit me hard. Besides making the purse I have made 5 single page layout, 1 double and 5 cards. Today, I am going to share with you the cards. The four birthday cards I am entering them into the Moxie Fab World Birthday Card Challenge.
   The thing that contribute to this is my thumb is finally better. The start of this year I injured it when I got it caught in a big, heavy cast iron pan I was washing. I am no longer wearing the brace to keep it from popping out of its joint.
The first two cards are created for the 10-minute craft dash.
This first card took me 6 min. and 35 sec. The funny thing was I had my timer set for 5 minutes instead of 10. I used S~N~S #5 card sketch for this.
Supplies: cardstock (Die Cuts With a View), pattern paper (October Afternoon), punch (EK Success), brads (?), twine (Timeless Twine), ink (Stampabilities), stamp (Inkadinado)
 This card took the full 10 minutes. I am in love with this one. I ended up using this card for another challenge on a private board I am on.

Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio and Close to My Heart), pattern paper (Echo Park and  Crate Paper, gelato (Faber-Castell), twine (Timeless Twine), ink (Stampabilities), stamp (Inkadinado), electronic die cutter and cartridge (Provo Craft), and doily.
The next two card used this sketch from Artful Delight.  
The first card I was not crazy about when I finished it but it has grown on me. 
Supplies: cardstock (Close to My Heart), pattern paper (Bo Bunny), washi tape (Queen & Co. and Doodlebug Designs), stamp (Deep Red Rubber), ink (Stampabilities), embossing powder (Gel-a-tins), fabric (K & Co.), overlay (Colorblok), doily, dew drops (The Robin's Nest), gelato (Faber-Castell), and Stickles
 This card has lots of layers and details that I am loving.
Supplies: pattern paper (Pebbles Inc.), washi tape (Bella Blvd.), rhinestones (Eyelet Outlet), stickers (Simple Stories), brad (S.E.I) punch (EK Success), and doily
 This card was made using the Paper Secrets card sketch. I also made it for a challenge on a different private board.
Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio), pattern paper (Studio Calico) stamp (Studio G), ink (Stampabilities), trim (Hobby Lobby) and rhinestones (The Paper Company)
Tomorrow I am going to share with you the layouts.
