Wednesday Afternoon Artwork to Share

I have a couple of cards and a layour to show you this afternoon.  My artwork will be done in spurts for awhile until I can get used to my full-time schedule and getting up so early in the morning!  I used to be a night owl getting a lot of work done into the wee hours.  I've actually gotten a lot more done today, but it's not time to reveal them yet!  (I am so thankful for scheduled posts!!)

All rightie, let's get to the good stuff and the reason you stopped by in the first place.  First up, I've got a layour for the Adornit monthly challenge.  I've been playing along for 4 or 5 months now, and I almost forgot to do this challenge!  I neglected to order the monthly page kit that Adornit puts together.  Usually I leave that out as a reminder.  (Sidebar - can you image what my craft desk really looks like with all these piles?!)

I grabbed some Adornit I had in my stash and created a layout with the theme "everyday giggles" and using the three items necessary - a rub-on, a dimensional flower, and a sticker.  Here's what I came up with:

Shane was just a year old here.  What a little blonde peanut!!  I used all Adornit for this layout except for CTMH black cardstock, a SU! rub-on, and my "so cute" from the Slice Big Kids design card.

Up next is the a card I made for Heart 2 Heart challenges.  I haven't had the chance to play for a month or so, and I really wanted to make the time this week.  It's a CTMH color challenge - NewEngland Ivy, Autumn Terracotta, and Honey.  Well, those colors are right up my alley, so I created this fall card using the circle templates from Jeanette Lynton's Wishes book.

All products used for this card are CTMH.

The last thing I want to remind you about is the Sketches for You Sketch-a-Thon.  It started today with the pre-challenges.  I posted this fall/back to school challenge using a sketch from PageMaps:

Items used: Imaginisce Apple Cider; Kraft paper; CTMH Colonial White buttons; Tim Holtz sentiment stamp; Zing Vanilla Embossing Powder; random hemp and leaf button

You have until Spetember 30th to complete this challenge, so hop on over for your chance to win a prize!

I hope you are having a grand Wednesday afternoon!  Be sure to make it your best day!!
