Happy Monday!!

Card #1 inspired by 4 challenges...

Color Throwdown // #ctd704 ...A color challenge!!  The color combo for this, brown, green, and white!  Makes for a woodsy theme in my mind.

Freshly Made Sketches // #FMS547 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch was great for showcasing some new designer paper I received in the mail.

Paper Craft Crew // #PCC481 ...A theme challenge!!  Forest Fantasy!!  Don't you just love it when you are walking in the forest and come upon a beautiful cluster of mushrooms!?!

The Paper Players // #PP603 ...A theme challenge!!  Happy Birthday!!  I realize that the only thing on this card that says birthday is the sentiment...might not be a good representation of the theme!!  A card with balloons, cake, or presents might have been better!!

Card #2 was inspired by 4 challenges...

Hand Stamped Sentiments // #HSS394 ...An inspiration challenge!!  I was inspired by the strings of lights!!  I love Christmas lights!!  

CASology // #406 ...A cue card challenge!! SAND is the cue card for this challenge!!  Where will you find a Christmas palm?? In the sand!!

Addicted to CAS // #226 ...A code word challenge!!  The code word for this current challenge is TROPICAL!!  I went with a tropical Christmas theme.

Retro Rubber Challenge // #rrcb188 ...An anything goes challenge!! With all the Christmas in July challenges last month I got on a Christmas kick.  As always with this retro challenge the stamp used needs to be over a year old.  This Christmas palm from Stampin Up's Beachy Little Christmas came out in 2017.
