Father's Day Card ( A little late!) and Color inspiration Challenge number 4

Wow, I've been gone for a while! I had finals and Regents and I'm finally free!
Yay, summer!

So I made this Father's Day card for my Father a while ago, but I never posted it. It's pretty "girly" for a man's card, with all that glitter on it (I have no idea why..) but I think the colors cancel out the girly-ness!
Here you go:

He seemed to like it, so that's good. I used a K&Company chipboard for the "dad" and some walmart company glitter paper for the glitter.

The second card is a card for Kristina Werner's contest, which ends in like 5 seconds so here we go!
It uses a K&Company circle and the same glitter paper as before. THe inks are from Ranger and stamps from MSE. I'm ordering some more, bcause they're on sale today so check out this blog for details!
Hope you enjoyed!

MSE "grabbox" review

Hello, everyone!!!

So I ordered a "grabbox" from My Sentiments Exactly about a month ago and it canme about two weeks ago. I ordered it through Adrienne Kennedy's blog, on a "Thrifty Thursday". It was at least the 2nd or 3rd time doing this "grabbox" thing, so I decided to give it a try. It was a great price= $20 for a bunch of random things from the company! The shipping was a little expensive, but it still seemed worth it so I took the chance.
Here's what I got:
Pretty sweet, huh? DEFINITELY worth $20! I got a whole bunch of stamps, papers, ribbons, rub-ons, an ink spot, brads, eyelets, and stickers!!
There were a few already cut cards and papers to made into a card quickly. I also got a cool embossing powder that looked white but turned out to be an awesome metallic pink!
So here are the stamps: (closer up)
Some are rubber, both mounted on wood blocks and unmounted and some are clear stamps. They're al lreally great quality! I olnt wish I had asked not to get holiday stamps, because I'm Jewish so they're really no use to me! I think I might sell some because I have a whole bag of stamps I can't use.
And here are the ribbons!
They are so much fun- I can't wait to use them!
Bottom line: this was a great buy. Would I order it again? I'm not sure. The only problem I had was with the papers= I didn't really like those, but I liked the pre-cut ones a lot more!
So check out Adrienne's bolg to see other great deals she puts up every Thursday!
She might do this idea again, so follow her blog. Even if she doesn't she makes really beautiful cards on Wednesdays!
Hope you enjoyed!
Wow, it's late, gotta go to sleep!

InLinkz Challenge #1- Boy Birthday Card

YAY!! I love doing challenges!

I unexpectedly got an email a few days ago from
InLinkz,about heir first ever card challenge!

The collor pallete is really cute and the card must be a boy birthday card. I don't think I've ever sone that before, but I just bought a "boy-themed" kit from Walmart or something so I figured I'd give it a try. This is what I came up with:

The strips of paper and the "monster" were from this kit that I don't even know the name of, I think it was a Walmart kit but sold in a random store. The brads are Making Memories and the stamps for the words are Hero Arts. The ink is Ranger and called "denim".
And of course some more stitching with a Uni-ball Signo Broad gel pen.
I think it looks fun!
What do you think? Let me know!!

WPlus9 Color Cue 4 card

Wow, it's getting hot out! I can feel summer in the air!!

The deadline for this card is in a few hours or so, so I figured I better do this now, while I'm still awake!
I think the colors are very peaceful and I made a really simple card, but it's sweet!
All I used was an EK Success heart punch and an MSE stamp with white embossing powder. Then some stitching lines and we're done!
Hope you enjoyed!
