Challenge Fun!

Hey Everyone!

I have 3 cards for you today..two by me and one by my adorable 3yr old.  Creativity finally came to me after spending hours cleaning my scrap area.  I had several projects started and just couldn't get myself going.  Well it's all now organized and I'm able to get my creative mojo flowing!  I'm knocking things out left and right and cleared up enough room to move my laptop back in! YAY!

Here are the first two cards created for the OWH Midweek Throwdown and for Michelle Perkett Studios Tuesday challenge 41 Anything Goes!!

Michelle Perkett Studio Design Challenge
Pretty simple card and I also left off the sentiment.  I thought the picture was cute enough on it's own to complete a card front.  I used Glossy Accents to make the apple pop a little bit more and 4 white brads for a little more dimension.  I broke out my daughters colored pencils since this is the first digi stamp that I've done.

Here is my cuties submission! =)
Lainey for OWH
I let her have at my scrap paper and she is a pink FREAK!!   The yellow was a nice surprise.  She broke out the crayons on her card. =)  I know she's adorable and no you can't have her!!

My third card to show is for the Clean & Simple sketch challenge 104.
Love Always
The distressing on this card was a complete accident but it worked perfectly.  I was trying just chalk the edges but a bumped elbow turned into a smear.  I'm not sure what paper this is.  I'm trying very hard to clear out all my old paper so I have a reason to buy new!

I hope you've enjoyed the cards!
