Die Cuttin' Divas Sketch Challenge

Yikes, it's April already!!  How did that happen?  I think because we moved in February, things have been kind of a blur for me since January.  It feels so good to have my craft room organized and I can create again without looking in boxes to find what I need. 

It's Tuesday so that means it is  time for our weekly Die Cuttin' Divas challenge.  This week is our monthly sketch challenge based on this sketch:
Here is the card I made for the challenge:
Paper: Carta Bella "Cool Summer" and Recollections
Cupcake: Cricut Sweet Treat Die cartridge

Die Cuttin' Divas Sketch Challenge

Hello and happy Tuesday!  Sorry I wasn't able to post a project last week.  We moved on March 20th and we were up to our eyes in boxes.  I spent most of this past weekend setting up my craft room.  I thought I would have it done but there were a lot more boxes than I thought!  I will get it finished this week.  I'm really excited because my husband got me some new shelves from Ikea and now all my furniture matches.  I'm really happy with the way it is turning out.

Ok, on to our card challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas.  This week is our sketch challenge based on this sketch:
Here is the card I made:

Die Cuttin' Diva's Challenge

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you!  I hope you are having a good week.  I have been so busy lately packing to move.  After living in our home for 17+ years, our landlord has decided he wants to sell the house so we have to move.  It's amazing how much stuff you can accumulate when you don't move for a long time.  We are now on a first name basis with the guys at our Goodwill collection center!  We did find a lovely new home only 1.5 miles from our current home so all is good (well, it will be once we finally move in!).

This week's Die Cuttin' Divas challenge is to make a project with pink/red or purple.  I decided to make a treat box for my co-workers and fill them with chocolate:
Die: Bubblegum Treat Box from My Creative Time
Heart Die: My Creative Time 
Paper: My Mind's Eye "Filled with Love"
Circle Punches: Stampin' Up
Sentiment: My Creative Time
Ink: Stampin' Up
Tulle: Joann's
