I created this birthday card for a friend using Inkadinkado's new Stamping Gear. I used the inside cogs on the large circle frame and stamped the berry branches first in every 6th cog. I then moved 3 spaces over and stamped the large leaves in every 6th cog. I masked the orange leaves and stamped the green leaves in the gaps left in the design. I must thank my wonderful daughter-in-law again for this fun birthday gift! I am having such fun playing with it! It is my favorite birthday toy!
I was out and about last week and missed Joanne's reign as Queen for the Day at Splitcoaststampers so when I discovered it today, I wanted to go back and case this beautiful card from her amazing gallery. I had to pull out my stamp-a-ma-jig to try to get those blocks lined up!
Bexx has challenged the members of the Card-a-Day blog group to create a card inspired by their favorite chip! Can you tell mine is Doritos? This card also honors Splitcoaststampers' Queen for the day Polly, aka peeps 321. When I found this lovely card in her amazing gallery, I knew it would work well with my Doritos!
Today's first card is going out as a thank you for a gorgeous birthday bouquet of gerber daisies that arrived at my house this week. As you can clearly see, I had fun with flowers, doilies, and crystals on this week's 10 minute cards.
Dorothy has challenged the members of the Card-a-Day blog group this week to case a card from another member of the group. With Bexx's permission I am casing her wonderful autumn thank you card and using its layout for today Kitchen Sink Stamps 10 Minute Card Design #90. I just fell in love with it when I saw it and had to give it a go. Here is Bexx's Stampin' Up only design showcased from her delightful blog, The Demented Spoon.
My sweet daughter-in-law always throws something cutting-edge and crafty into the goody bundle they bring to help me celebrate my birthday. This year it was Inkadinkado's Stamping Gear. What fun! I used it to create this card for this week's color challenge at SCS.

My need today is for masculine prayer cards. So many great masculine papers are found in the graphic 45 Communique collection. The sentiment is from Wonderfully Made by Verve, and I have used theMOJO 258 sketch! I got 4 of these made and in the mail today.

This week I had fun shuffling embossed panels around on the card front to create more 10 minute cards. The combinations are endless. With additional time, these cards would be super cute with mats and ribbons as well. I stamped my Kitchen Sink images in the 1 3/4 inch by 2 1/4 inch blank panel, but it would be interesting to stamp on the other sizes as well to create a pretty card set.
I obviously wasn't paying very close attention as I did my shuffling! Please just laugh out loud and ignore the sideways script!
This design was created for two challenges today. The sketch is from Verve for the 2nd week of September and the baby part was for SCS Free4All 133 which requires a baby card without any traditional baby images. Now if I just knew someone who was having a baby girl!

I created today's card for the Card-a-Day blog group using SCS's Sketch Challenge 401. I pulled out some old but dearly loved Stampin' Up sets and mixed them with my newest Inkadinkado Branches to make this "Great Outdoors" design.
Stamps: Pines and Nature Silhouettes by Stampin' Up
An inch and a half of designer paper down the side of the card was used to create this week's 10 minute KSS design. I would love to see our Kitchen Sink fans pull out their KSS stamps and share something beautiful they create using this simple sketch.
