Hi there! I had a productive couple of hours in the Craft Cave today. I made some special order cards and also managed to play along with some challenges. First up is this card that I made using the Paper Smooches Sparks sketch. The spaceship and sentiment are from the PS Space Cadet set. To make the moonscape I used some splatter stamps from Stampin' Up' Gorgeous Grunge. I love how it turned out! I'm also going to enter this in the Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes challenge and the Addicted to Stamps and More Anything Goes challenge.

Next up I'm playing along with The Challenge's theme of celebrating teachers. I think all of the sets I used here are either retired or from companies that are no longer in existence. The apple is Unity, the sentiment is Sweet Stamp Shop and the background is Market Street Stamps.

My third card was inspired by the Joan Bardee's Muse card. I liked the sketchy look of the birthday cake and it made me think of this Hero Arts cake that I've had forever and has never seen ink. The sentiment is also from an old Hero Arts set so because of this I decided to join the a2z Scrapbooking Supplies Anything Goes challenge (using Hero Arts).

My final card is a special order card that I'm entering in the Seize the Birthday Anything Goes challenge. The skyline is cut from DCWV glitter paper. I love that stuff especially for blingy, girlie cards! It may be the first time I actually get through an entire paper pad at the rate I'm going. :)
So that's it for today. I have a couple more special order cards to finish tomorrow and hopefully will sneak in a few more challenge cards as well if the mojo sticks around. Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend!
