Out of my STASH I did work

Yesterday it cooled off and start to rain and it was a great day to just stay inside and play (well, I was doing laundry too) I decided to just work out of my stash of decorative papers and a stash of images that were ready to go but for some reason I set them aside.  Ya know, colored, trimmed out and then didn't quite work.  So out of the drawer came a scalloped circle that was already mounted on a second one. Digging a little deeper I came across a digital that had been colored, trimmed and ready to go.....okay!  Now for some layers for the background, and wah - la !  I did add a bit of ribbon, still not sure it I like that part but stays as is.  A sentiment was added to the upper corner to finish it off.  Then it was off to a different set up
 This next card came about when I was blog surfing and hit upon Frans blog challenge
She has a Sunday sketch challenge so I gave it a whirl, of course Teddy form Stamping Up was ready to go, just had to find coordinating papers to finish him off.  Every time I make a baby card in blue everybody has one shall be a pink baby card!!!! Okay 2 down and still I made more.....
 This third card was rally a fun one to create.  The card was a 6 1/2 x 5 that i had cut an oval in, then got ink on the bottom, well it got put aside for??????/time, until I drug it out and cut it to a 4x51/2  I grunged up the face of the card, and the trim around the oval.  Found the Iris ready to go in my image stash, but needed something behind the oval opening.....ah ha! found some trim I meant to use  on something else, this was a better idea. I did back the inside of the cared with a dusty purple cs to make the trim pop a little better.  Using a soft lavender in I did stamp a design along the edge, and I found lavender bow already made to finish it off.  Now how easy was that?????
 Last item for this post and for Sunday play time, cause the football play offs were getting started, and I couldn't miss those games.  BUT I digress......I did a book mark for a friend I work with.  There are still those of us that LOVE to hold a book and finger the pages as we turn them.:0
My little giraffe was also ready to go, I did add a sentiment from Rouge Redhead Designs.  Can you believe I actually the same animal print ribbon??? LOL This was a hardback tag and I decoupaged the image on and just added the ribbon.  Love this little guy, might just have to keep him.
So that is what I did Sunday, yes I did watch the football play off games, got the laundry finished, dusted off the iron and used it on a pile of DH shirts :0
Hope your week end was as productive!!!
