How did I miss this?

These were made a couple of weeks ago for the SCS sketch challenge. How did they not get posted here? I don't know, but here they are now. All stamps are Fire Cracker Designs by Pamela.

A few things I have been working on.

I made this card for the color and sketch challenges this week on SCS. I have been anxious to use the sheet music background that I recently got from I Brake For Stamps. The other stamps are from Fire Cracker Designs by Pamela, and Impression Obsession. I think this will go to Shelbys music teacher.
For a "Bit about Me Skinny Swap" I struggled with this one a lot, but I really like how it finally came out.
Monogram ATC swap. What was I thinking signing up for this one? Great thing my swap partner was Barbara so of course I had a B. I hope you like it Barbara!
I stuggled with this one a bit too, but it came out really great! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the musical HAIR. SO when I signed up for the "Hair" swap I knew I would incorporate part of the song. I kind of wish the swap had been for a skinny though, so I could have added more of the song.
Lyle had never seen the musical, so when I rented it a few years ago I thought he would enjoy it. Especially since his hair was down to his waist at the time. But he didn't get it at all. Oh well! I still enjoy it!

Scarecrow, birds, and flowers!

Pamela has named this stamp set Hangin Around Scarecrow, but I like to call him Hang Around Hal! When I was looking through the gallery of this weeks featured stamper Jennifer I was specifically looking for a card I could case to using Hang Around Hal! I chose this card I think Hal is pretty happy!
Here is another little wooden book I made. Several stamp companies in here, SU, OnyxXpressions, Inque Boutique, Fire Cracker Designs by Pamela and many more that I don't even know.

My first try at wire bugs, super easy!

This one is all Fire Cracker Designs by Pamela. Mixed up a couple of her scene stamping sets for this. In real life most birds FREAK ME OUT!!! Don't really like them at all, but I LOVE CARDINALS!!! There is a pair in our yard every year. I am sure they are the same pair that keep coming back and I keep taking pictures of them every year. I was so happy to see that Pamela had included a Cardinal in her new scene set. Had to grab that up right away!!!

A few recent cards

I had been wanting this Daddys Hands set from Fire Cracker Designs by Pamela for a while. Then when I finally got it and looked at it, looking was all I could do. I was so stumped! So I decided to make cards for Lyle, one from me, and one from each kid. Since the kids are so far apart in age, and have different personalities, interests, favorite colors, it just might work. Well it did! This first one of course is from Dylan.
This one I shared earlier in the week since it is based on a card from the featured stamper on SCS. This one will be from me.
This one will be from Shelby.
And this one will be from Taylor of course!
This card I did based on this weeks sketch challenge at SCS. I used Oxford Impression stamps. I wasn't too sure about it at first, but I really like it now.
