Raspberry Suite Challenge 3/CPS

Hi! Thanks so much for all of the kind birthday wishes! I had such a nice day. Now, it's on to getting ready for Ryan's birthday. It's on Thursday. Of course, his day WAAAY overshadows mine. We have the school party, the 'real' party and then family over on Easter and are doing the 'family' party. This week is going to be a bit crazy!!

Well, here is my card for this week's Raspberry Challenge. Dawn sucked me in as soon as I saw it involved Red and Kraft!!




I used this week's CPS sketch for the card, too. I pulled out my new "Life" stamp set. And some Bitty Dot paper in Poppy. All of the cardstock is PTI. I even pulled out my Nestabilities, that have been sitting in a drawer for quite some time, for this one. I love how it turned out!


This next card is one that I did for my friend and fellow Master, Melissa Blair. She gave birth to a beautiful baby girl last week. We all created cards for her and are posting them on the MMM blog this week. Stop by if you need an idea for a baby card. There's lots of inspiration there!





I used PTI stamps on this one, too. I created the pattern on the bottom paper using the Simply Stationery set.

Well, that's it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
