Lots of Challenges - childhood inspired.

The sketch this week from 2 Sketches 4 You:
The Challenge this week from CAS on SCS is to use a postcard from Mackinac Island as inspiration, I chose this one:

For my card I also incorporated the Cupcake Craft Challenge - childhood memories - I totally had a bike like this and I spent a lot of time being silly and having fun while riding it!  I also incorporated the Paper Cutz Challenge - 3 pattern papers - the 'road' is cut from stripe paper.  This card and the one below also fit the Stamp Something Challenge - stitching.

The paper and chipboard is from Cosmo Cricket, the stamp is Hero Arts.


The sketch this week from Sweet Sunday:


The Etsy Inspired Challenge this week is the Mouse Market, some pretty yummy jewelry there!  I chose the cupcakes as my inspiration:

The sentiment is stamped using Schlosser Designs Hey Cupcake set, the cupcakes are cut from pattern paper and layered with foam squares.  The paper is Collage Press.  This card reminds me of my childhood, I loved cupcakes, now I'm not so much a cake eater, so this fits the Cupcake Craft Challenge as well.

What terrific cards, Laurel! I smiled at your love of your bike. I remember one I had that I earned money for by babysitting. It was a blast! Thanks for the memory jog. Your cupcakes look so yummy!
