3 Different Cards for some Challenges :)

It was busy time at the Christmas, because we invite the Mother In Law to have dinner here for 3 is better that she not feel alone at the senior home and can a bit speaking with me and my sons. She already get better after chemotherapy, she can think more clear better than at July 2014 :) Good give her miracle :)

Now about the card I made...I think I am late to all the challenge also I will make this as a quick blog post today

Firts card is for the challenge at STAMPlorations using this sketch #19 from past challenge:

I want to join the challenge at STAMPLORATIONS this December Challenge Thema: Stamps and Designer's Choice. I choose that past sketch #19.

After I stamped the lady from Pink Cat Studio 3 times, I stamped her Suitcase with the Crossing Lines from The Alley Way Stamps (Can you Imagine a friend of mine bought this set for me for a gift...thanks Miss are so kind to me :) also now I have two sets of stripes Stamp, one from Papetres Ink (sent from Cornelia in USA) and one from The Alley Way Stamp.) Then I stamped her skirt two times to make this Gingham pattern with red ink. Colored the rest with red, blue n brow copic marker.

The Rose stamp for the strip behind the main Image is from STAMPLORATIONS.(I got it from Shery the Owner from Stamplorations...many thanks dear Shery this is a cute set and romantic rose stamp)

Challenge for my first card:

Inspired By Stamping #89: Gingham

Simon Says: Anything Goes 

Loves Rubberstamp #131: Holiday Blitz Antyhing Goes

Second card I made using this Photo Inspiration from BE INSPIRED Challenge #60:

I used this set from The Alley Way Stamp to for my card and I inspired with the picture at the right top.

I stamped the stripes with pink and black ink and made my own Pattern Paper.

I am new at making Plaid Paper also forgive me to "not so perfect stamped look" :) The sentiment I stamped also in pink around the circle to gave a bit variation on the main Image.

Challenge for my second card:

Word Art Wednesday #163: Anything Goes

Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge #208: Anything Goes

My Third card is for a challenge also from STAMPLORATIONS this is the SKETCH Challenge #24.

I choose the SKETCHED: Simple Gift from STAMPLORATIONS. Stamped on the pattern paper and simply arrange it on the orange paper. The sentiment also from the same set.

The faux stitched I made with my hand, two times..and it made my card not look so empty with that stitched around my card.

Sometimes Sketch Challenge is easier for me, I have not to think about the design of my card only think which stamp should I use for that sketch :) dont you agree too?

Challenge for my third card: 

The Paper Shelter: Anything Goes

Little Red Wagon #269: Happy Birthday

Penny Black and More Challenge (December): Special Occasions  

Now I run for making lunch for my little boys and my big DH at my home :)

Thanks for looking and happy holidays, in Munich it is snow all over our garden :)
