A few cards and a Lawn Fawn Challenge

So, It's been a while! Lots going on for me right now and while I still try to find time to create I don't always find time to post. So, here is a post that will make up for my absence...Here are some cards I simply made for fun and at the end there is a card I'd like to enter into the Lawnscaping Challenge!
Here goes...
I used Tim Holtz Texture Paste for the first time and love it! I replaced my stencil with diagonal stripes after the paste dried and blended over it with Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, and Mustard Seed distress inks. For the wonderful sentiment I used a stamp from Simon Says Stamp's Blessed set.
 This was a fun thank you card for my awesome dad who recently worked on my husband's brakes for us. I used the Lawn Fawn set, Let's Roll and colored it in with alcohol markers.
 For this happy card I used the Texture Paste again with Dusty Concord, Spiced Marmalade, and Peacock Feathers. I then stamped the goat from Simon Says Stamp's Birthday Farm Animals, and colored him using my new Spectrum Noir markers! I finished him off with a bit of Wink of Stella glitter on the cupcake and some white gel pen and Glossy Accents on his eyes and nose.
 Detail shot of the goat! is the Lawn Fawn Challenge entry!
I am so excited to share this next project with you! I'm so glad I joined this challenge because I love the way it turned out. The challenge is to use patterned paper...the instructions said you could also make your, since I had never tried that I thought I would....

I started out by using my ruler and pencil to create a diamond pattern across the front of the card. Then I cut some Post It tape to use as a mask for the diamonds around the one I would be stamping in...and proceeded to stamp my little characters from Lawn Fawn's set Monster Mash!

 I then chose my second creature to use and began stamping him as well.
 Once all the stamping was finished the Spectrum Noir coloring began.....
 (yes, that little guy on the bottom of the card was intentionally stamped upside down.)
I used my ruler and white gel pen to create a more defined line to separate the blocks a little more. I think it gave it all such a nice finish!
 The cute sentiment is from the same stamp set. This card just makes me happy! It's going to be difficult to decide who gets to receive this one!
