CPS Challenge

Really cool challenge this week at! As usual!

I woke up this morning to find an email from Jan telling me that Favorite Youngest Nephew Jake was chosen as Artist of the Month at his school and Favorite Only Niece Joy was chosen as Citizen of the Month. Wowie Zowie! If anything deserves an Aunt Sue card...that certainly does!

Since I finally started using the CTMH Key To My Heart paper pack last week, it's become my "go to" paper pack. I just love all of the designs. And now it's not available any more! It was the promo of the month for January, and now it's gone. But I got some new papers and stamps to play with on Friday, so this also gave me a chance to use them. I used the KTMH paper pack for Joy's card. The brand new Bird Basics stamp set. This set is so cute! Three different birds, different wings, different tails, different feet. You can mix and match in hundreds of ways! I added some Tutti Frutti Stickles to the wing and a black Bitty Brad for the eye and it's pop-dotted for dimension. I also inked up my new Boutique Borders for the cardstock between the two paper designs. The circles are Pinking Circles cut with my Nesties. And because the card is for Princess Joy, the obligitory diamond on the sentiment!

For Jake's card, I used the new CTMH Stardust paper pack along with Star Struck stamp set. I folded the points of the star and pop-dotted the center to make it stand proud of the card and added some Diamond Stickles because boys like bling too! The sentiment has one of CTMH's new Pewter Brads. I used Labels Two of my Nestabilities to cut the background for the star.
