Blue or Pink? Mashup

I made this card to bring to work to pass around for signatures for a work baby shower.  My friend who is having the baby has decided to not find out the sex, so I went for a blue or pink theme, using the Mashup at this week's Friday Mashup challenge.  

First, I want to show you the inside because I was so pleased with myself when I thought of the plan.  As you likely know, the traditional size for handmade cards doesn't leave a ton of room for passing a card around an office to get lots of signatures.  So I added a flap to the inside.  THEN, and this is the adorable part.  I made it themed... so you are supposed to sign by the pink footprints if you think she's going to have a girl, and by the blue ones if you think she's having a boy:

And this is how I put together the front:

It's a Girl for Freshly Made

My best friend from college is having a girl this December, and her shower was this past weekend.  Since I rarely make cards ahead of time, and I fell in love with the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches at first sight, it seemed like a perfect combo.
My friend is due on Dec. 23, and I'm a Christmas baby myself, so I am so hoping she'll have the most perfect Christmas present ever this year.  But I digress... here's how I brought my card together:
The T is for their last name.  The actual name is being kept secret until the birth.  

This was the second card I made... well, I didn't finish the first, but it wasn't headed in the right direction.

Friday Procrastination

I literally made this card the day that the Fab Friday challenge was posted, and then not only failed to post it in time for the one week Friday Mashup challenge that I also used, but am now posting just hours before the two week Fab Friday challenge closes.  And I'm posting instead of getting ready for work.  EEK!

And the card:

More Complicated than it looks CCMC

I pretty much just have time to post the pictures of my card.  It was a doozy!  I made it so much more complicated than it looks!  But, I think it looks pretty fabulous.  Hahahaha...

Another great sketch from Connie and Mary:
 And the outside of my card:

I wish I had time to tell you everything I did.

So Fresh and so Clean

This may be the cleanest card I've made for Freshly Made Sketches.  

Here's the sketch:
And my card:
I used the underside of the awesome ribbon slide to keep it cleaner.  And a few pierces in the paper created the accent shape, and I'm done!  Took longer than you'd think because I started with something much more involved and then scrapped it.  Haha...

Card Stock:  Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, International Bazaar DSP
Ink:  Versamark

Deceptively Tricky CCMC221

Super quick post today.  I saw this sketch at Create with Connie and Mary, and I knew I wanted to make a card with it.  SO cute!  Then it was much harder to work with than I expected!  Sometimes it goes the other way, right?  A sketch looks very difficult, and then the card comes together with ease?

Should be asleep...

But I figured I'd hurry up and post this since I happened to think of it after staying up late to finish a project for work.  

I LOVED this week's sketch at Create with Connie and Mary:

My father-in-law needed a birthday card, so I put this together.   I apologize... picture is terrible.  There is actually fabulous dimension on this card!
That's all I have the energy for, but thanks for stopping by my blog today!
