So, I couldn't wait to get crafty in the menopause room. First thing on the agenda was to make a few SAS4Kids cards for Nationwide Children's. :)
A Card Fit for a Matey
This card was inspired by MFT's current sketch and color challenges.
As you can, see I rotated the sketch. When I first saw it, I knew pirates were coming. So, I immediately envisioned the sketch's vertical strip becoming a bit of ocean.
Then, I dug through my stash of papers to find the closest matches possible to the colors of Coral Crush, Spearmint, Green-Eyed Monster, and Blueberry.

MFT Party Like a Pirate stamps and dies

MFT Ocean Porthole Die; Paper Smooches wave die
adhesives: Scotch ATG and foam backing
I've been resisting these little pirates for so long... and finally gave in to temptation... and am so glad I did. :)
A Card Fit for a Text-Obsessed Tween/Teen
My second card was inspired by those free-with-order text bubble dies. I had been tempted by a stamp set in this year's Stampin' Up! catalog. But, when I saw that trio of die, I knew I had to place an order to get a hold of these sweeties.
Day 3 (Die Cutting) Gallery.
So, what do you think of that blending filament? I was originally going to play with some thin gold thread. But, when I reached in my twine/thread container, the blending filament started unraveling. It had such a random, organic look, I decided to go with that instead... and I LOVED the look. Let's call this one happy crafty accident. :)
