Playing along with this week's Retro Sketches layout. I used the Chemistry stamp set from Paper Smooches, which is loaded with lots of fun images. I cut out the beaker and smoke and adhered them with pop dots. I made 3 different versions of this card, but this is the one I liked the best.

Card club is meeting at my house tomorrow night. We are making three different cards. One is a sunshine stamp from Verve, one is a pumpkin stamp from PTI, and the last one is an anchor stamp set which is also from Verve. These will be going out to our homebound members and others with prayer needs.

My mother was a teacher. It's not an easy job, but it's so very important. This card is for the Curtain Call challenge: Back to School. I used the PTI stamp set which is filled with lovely sentiments about teachers. The sketch I took from the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge. I changed it a bit by flipping it on its side and adding the banners.

I have to say I'm pretty proud of myself: I managed to complete all the challenges this year! Some were easy, some were...not. Here's my card for the Gallon Pint Quart challenge. I am hoping to be able to edit these photos a little better once I get to my own computer.
I used another butterfly for the Custom Accents from the Oven.
Fall is coming, so I used pumpkin pie spice for the Scent-sational cards challenge. This one was probably my favorite challenge.
The Limited Ingredients challenge was fun, especially for me since the more choices I have, the harder it is to make a decision!
And finally, the Sugar Coated embellishment. I really don't enjoy working with glitter. It just gets everywhere. But, the event was all about experiment and learning new things, so here's my card.
Thanks so much for looking at all my creations. It was a fun event and I look forward to what the team will come up with for next year!

Here is my first attempt - I am posting the picture for your own amusement. Sad little butterfly....
So I am moving on with the 4th challenge, which is to make your own spray mists. This one was fun as I love using misters especially to add a bit of sparkle to a project.
And, for my final picture in this post, I am showing the 5th challenge, which was called Sprinkle of Salt. Here we did watercolor and sprinkled coarse salt over the wet paper, let it dry, and it was suppose to texturize. Mine did not work out for some reason, but I still like the technique.
