Words to Scrap By

I continue to struggle to find significant time to create cards but since the deadline is almost here at Words to Scrap By, I wanted to make sure I finished this card in time!
The theme for this month is weather- and boy have we experienced some interesting weather lately in New England! I was pelted with hail coming out of the post office the other day! For 3 minutes it came down-crazy- then it was gone! Here is my sweet gal who just survived a hail storm and is happy for some sunshine!

Have a wonderful week and hope that spring brings us some nice weather...soon!

A Bunch-O-Cards

Well, here I am-playing catch up...again!
Work has been very busy lately so by the time I get creative juices and energy are gone!
I was able to create today so I played along with some of my favorite challenges.

The Male Room has a sketch for this challenge:

The Crooked Stamper is a new challenge blog and I think it is going to one of my favorites!


My interpretation is a little different from the sketch but I kept the main elements that same. I colored a die cut piece of Vertigo plastic with yellow and gray copic markers to give the lightbulb a warm glow and for the metal base. I love the texture in this 'paper'. It also gives a holographic type of shine- something I could not capture with my camera!

Keeping with my lightbulb theme, I used a MFT stamp and a sketch from last week's Tuesday Morning Sketches and used a bow for the Cards in Envy Challenge- anything goes with a bow!

And for the ODBD challenge at OWH for March- it is all about the sentiment.  I purchased this ODBD stamp at the stamp show about 2 years ago- and I really like it but do not use it often..I need to play with it more often. It has a chalkboard effect when you stamp in colored ink onto white paper. The stamp does all the work for a super simple card.

OWH card makers know that we have to work a few months ahead of the holidays so I am trying to make some Mothers Day cards- these need to get to Sandy by the end of March.... so I am making it my mission for this week... make more cards for Moms!!

I hope you have a wonderful week and I plan to post more cards soon!
