Beate's sketch challenge and just using new papers...

I love weekends when I can just sit down and create, not for a purpose, but just for whatever. So last night I took advantage (and stayed up late) to make a few non-purpose cards, just to create. The cards above are fun, I used my new Basic Grey "Blush" papers from the local scrapbook store. I cut out the shapes to paste to my red petal cards that I've got tons of leftovers from Stampin' Up. On the red sides I stamped some Flourishes stamps by Autumn Leaves in brown ink. I distressed the edges using my distressing tool. Oh happy day stamp is by Wordsworth. The pink rhinestone just polished off the rough edges and made it fun for me.

I also had fun creating this card for Beate's weekend sketch challenge (WSC63) and just decided to do a masculine card. This card, as I was making it, reminded me of shoe polish and military. Don't ask why, except inking the edges and the color, I guess. My Friend is a cardstock sticker from Daisy D's and I squashed a bottle cap and stuck it on. I used brads that look like screws. I love these. I enjoy doing masculine cards every so often.

We had quite a weekend, Friday night we took our older daughter to see the play "The Jungle Book" which was SO much fun, yesterday we went to another birthday party, and today our church had a fall festival. Nate and I are exhausted.

Don't forget about my blog candy, if you haven't commented to that post yet, be sure to do so before Thursday! Have a great week!

I don't see the shoe polish you see in this card. I do love it though! It's beautiful.
Thanks so much for playing!
