Happy Birthday Manly card and Happy Holidays Card and a Pink Baby Card

I made this manly card last night :

The sketch I got up from this sketch at The Male Room #20:

I stamped the Background Stripes from Hero Arts Canvas Stripes Background with blue ink and then the Coffe Cup is from The Alley Way Stamp set (Breakfast Club). I stamped much coffee beans on the brown paper and put it as the strip there. The Coffee Cup I colored with Copic Marker.

I like to make as simple as I can :)

Challenges for my first card:

Crafty Sentiments Designs: Anything Goes (sdh a.p.)

Loves Rubberstamps #121: Anything Goes  (sdh a.p.)

Sister Act Challenge #77: Anything Goes (sdh a.p.)

Inkspirational Challenge #66: Beverages/Drinks (sdh a. p.)


The second card based from this sketch from Stamplorations #21:

As I have no big flower stamp (and I love Shery Big flower sketches) from Stamplorations also I choose this Sentiment Buliders HAPPY to make my main Image. 

I stamped the sentiment on a paper and gave the CLEAR embossing powder, then I embossed it...after that with distress ink I started to colored my paper. Green tone to brown tone this time. Last but not least I colored with my Copic in brown to highlight the sentiment HOLIDAYS.

I love the result and then I stamped HAPPY and gave glitter silver embossing powder on it. The silver strip is my old collection of sticker, it was bought around 2009 :)

Challenges for my second card are:

Creative Card Crew #72: Black Cardstock (sdh a.p.)

Papertake Weekly Challenge: Anyting Goes (sdh a.p.)

Artistic Inspirations Challenge #112: Anything Goes (sdh a.p.)

RETARTE: Fall/Autumn or Anything Goes, (I choose the colors of autumn but the theme is Holiday also I join the Anything Goes Challenge this time :) hope it counts)

Stamping Sensations: October Challenge Autumn (I used the Autumn colors)

Use your Stuff #156: Fall (I used the Fall colors) (sdh a.p.)

Stamplorations October Challenge: Stamps and  Embossing (I embossed all the sentiment on my card)

*****EDITED (as I dont want to write another post and I just made a card for the new challenges, I put also my card here :))****

This is the Baby card with all PINK on it :) My friend need a baby card for his friend who got the baby last 2 weeks, cause I need to put her name on it I still wait until he got the name of the baby from the Mom :) the Baby´s name is EMILIE, also this is a card for her...

This is so easy to made, I have one and only pink dots paper on my stash (sent from my lovely friend last 3 years ago) and I have old die cut Baby dress that I bought in Ebay. Also choose pink DP and pink Vellum, also the sentiment I stamped on a hot pink paper. 

I ask my friend do you like this....(send per MMS) then he said job today is DONE :)

I like to join these challenges:

Freshly Made Sketches #157: see sketch bellow: (sdh a.p.)

Double Click Connections: Use Pink (sdh a. p.)

Miriam´s Crafting Challenge: must have at least two shades of pink (I used more two shades of pink on my Baby card)

Thanks for looking and happy thursday :)
