♥ a new scraptastic challenge ♥

good morning!  how was your weekend?  i am fighting "the cold" and it's not a fun one but other than that, it was beautiful and enjoyable even with spots of snow at times.  

the new CARD challenge is up over at Scraptastic Scrapbooking Kits this morning.  i hope a lot of you will be able to join in too, it's amazing to see the card inspiration (i have a couple in mind for a lift challenge soon already)

today's challenge: 

create a card, layout or set of TWO tags inspired by the sketch below

layout/card sketch by danni reid


 i wanted to create a belly-band kind of sketch for this week's challenge because belly-bands leave plenty of room for interpretation, can be very quick to create or as layered and detailed as you would like.  this is a sketch i, personally, will refer to a lot when creating because it's so easy to change up and have completely different cards. 

 and here is my take on the sketch and bonus challenge using the Scraptastic January Scrapbooking Kit Chasing Pavements

darling dear love card


i absolutely love the stickers that came in the kit this month.  they have tons of hearts, ampersands and arrows and they are so, so much fun to add to cards and layouts.  i also love the label stickers in the kit, they are perfect for layout/card designers alike for sentiments, journaling or layering.


and here is my manufacturer strip that came on one of the sheets of patterned papers in the kit, love this cute little strip and the type set


and here's one more

job well done card
