365 Cards - Day 198 & Back to School with D2D


Aloha! Today's challenge at 365 Cards is to have a "Standout Sentiment"! Well as usual, I took this literal and went with a pretty much sentiment only card...well, with that super cool "Domestic Goddess" patterned paper from SU! but other than that, it's the sentiment! And that sentiment just cracks me up (and it's a motto I try to live by!) ;)

Here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. CardPatterns - sketch
2. Catch The Bug Challenge Blog - punches or die cuts: my sentiment and the little flowers are both nestabilities
3. Craft Your Days Away Challenge - make your own flowers
4. Craft your passion challenges - use the "F" word: mine is "flowers"
5. CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS - anything goes (20)
6. Delicious Doodles challenges - fresh start: my something fresh is the patterned paper (thanks mom!)
8. Lollipop Crafts - eyelets/brads: the center of my flowers are snap eyelets
10. Stamp Something - stamp something: my sentiment is a rubber stamp
11. The Corrosive Challenge Blog - funny or use a pun
12. I Did it Creations Challenge - anything goes
13. One Stitch At A Time Challenge - anything goes
14. Totally Stampalicious - anything goes


Next up is my sample for this week's Designer's challenge at Delightful Inspiration (D2D) which is "back to school."
I did another supersized image shape card! This is from the Apple a Day set and was enlarged to about 5.5x6". I paper pieced the image with SU! Summer Picnic DSP and then created the sentiment on the computer and printed it out. The button is actually a brad and was backed with a felt flower and some twine. Here's some other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. Bearly Mine Challenges - button it up
2. Challenge up your life - paper piecing
3. Crafts and Me - buttons and bows
4. Crafty Creations Challenges - anything but a square
5. Crafty Sentiments - spots and sentiments
6. Cupcake Craft Challenges - back to school
8. If The Shoe fits... Scrap It! - back to school
9. Speedy the Cat’s Friends Challenge - use a punch: the tag is a punch
11. Simply Create - here comes the bus (back to school)
12. Stamp-n-doodle - back to school
14. The Friday Mashup! - stitching
15. There's Magic In The Air - shaped card
16. TotallyPaperCrafts - cute with buttons

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get the chance to play along with this week's challenges!
Aloha,
