Ahh! Summer is here! Well, almost..
Here are a few cards that I made yesterday and today for some challenges over at SCS. The first 2 are for the Ways to Use it challenge yesterday. We had to use buttons!
This one is for today's Limited Supplies challenge to use only patterned papers! No cardstock other than your card base, No Coloring Mediums (copics, colored pencils, etc) and we had to leave the embellishments simple.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Now back to my cleaning!! Ughh!

My First Hybrid Card!
I made this quick and easy card using the new Birthday Card Kit by Lindsay's Stamp Stuff! It has the cutest papers and embellies in it and guess what? It's only 2 bucks!! An entire kit for only $2!! And don't forget, once you download it, it's yours forever! So an endless card kit for $2!! Just go HERE to purchase!
And what's even more fun is this card took me exactly 12 minutes to put together! Including the trimming of the papers! So if you ever needed a quick birthday card for someone, here ya go!! And now go and see what the other DT girls put together in under 15 minutes!! I'm sure you won't be disappointed! :)

Be who you are...
I used some Pink Paislee Cutie Pie paper, some sheer polka dotted paper by Ki Memories, a Melissa Frances Rub-On and the butterflies are an Inque Boutique stamp. I first used a marker to ink just the outer edges of the butterfly stamp (I only wanted the outline of the butterfly and not the entire inside image), I then trimmed them out and then stamped them with my Prima Becky stamp for the polka dots and then sprayed them with some Baby's Breath Shimmerz Spritz. I used today's SCS Color Challenge for this card. Hope you like it?!!
I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!

JBelle Tuesday! ~ You're as Sweet, as a Summer Treat!
Today's Jacksonbelle Embellishments challenge is to make a card inspired by a cookout! Can you believe Memorial Day is in 6 days?? Yay, for Summer! I decided to make a simple watermelon card! My son's favorite summer fruit! I hand-drew the watermelon(yeah, big deal! just a half a circle! I can handle that one!! hehe) I then colored it in with some pastel, shimmery chalks and then added some Celery and Coal Shimmerz paints and just a touch of white glitter to the white part of the fruit. I wanted to make a checkered tablecloth out of the ribbon but that didn't turn out so hot, so I just added a little ribbon underneath the watermelon. The DP is Bo Bunny, the saying I printed out of MS Word and the pearls are by Kaiser Craft.
We would love to see your Cookout inspired cards too! When uploading to SCS, please use keyword JBE054 or send a link to your card to the JBelle Blog!
Now let's go see what the fabulously talented other Jbelle Rockstars created!!
Have a wonderfully sweet day!!

For my card I used some Anna Griffin DP, sand cs, some Prima butterflies,(can't get enough of those!)some Studio G stamps, crocheted lace, sheer ribbon, a pearl stick pin, a Wedding Poem that I printed out of MS Word, and lots of adhesive pearls. I also made 2 hearts on 2 bottom panels out of pearls. And lastly, on some of the panels I used some marbelized paper I picked up in Mike's and ran the panels through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder.
This is the card all closed up.
I made this to go along with my wedding tin that I made last week. Hope you like it!
Have a wonderful day!
