Less Is More Challenge #422

This card was created for the Less Is More Challenge.  The challenge this week was to create a card using both a solid image and an outlined image.  Stampin Up's Penned and Painted seemed like the perfect set for pulling this off.  

Tic Tac Toe Challenge #070 & Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #342

Today's card was created for two challenges.  A color challenge from the Hand Stamped Sentiments team and the Tic Tac Toe Challenge board.  The color combo from Hand Stamped Sentiments was Pool Party, Mint Macaroon, and Bermuda Bay.   This color combo made me with of summer time and the ocean.  My three in a row on the Tic Tac Toe board run down the left side...Polk a Dots/Sequins/Summer.  

#bethegift challenge:   Love everyone you met today like it is your last day on earth!

Color Throwdown Challenge #599 & Global Design Project #246

Inspiration for today's card came from the color challenge from the Color Throwdown team & the sketch challenge from the Global Design Project team.  Both the sketch and the color combo sang out a celebration....so a birthday card was created.  Thank guys for inspiring me!!   While all the products (designer papers, die, stamps) I used to make this card are from Stampin Up, sadly they have been retired!!  I however just can't part with them!!

Paper Players Challenge #496 & Addicted to CAS Challenge #187

Addicted to CAS called for a single layer...all stamping done on your base card with no paper layers, die cuts or embellishments.   I embossed a heart with silver embossing powder and melted my "thanks" sentiment into it!!  My inspiration behind this was from the Paper Players photo challenge....and since they are also calling for a CAS (Clean And Simple) card...my creation was perfect for both challenges.

#bethegift challenge:   Live given!! Give even a dollar to a charity today! Somthing! Anything! To someone! Love giving!

Twofer Challenge // Circles & Bubbles

Nothing like waiting until the last day!!! I got all out of schedule while my daughter and son-in-law were here for a week...almost missed out on this fun challenge.  Anyway...here is my take on The Twofer Challenge  to make a card using bubbles & circles.  I am using the "bubbles" from Seaside Notes and the single circle stamp from Lily Pad Lake.  I also used the "sea grass" die from the Sailing Home bundle.  All three of these sets are from Stampin Up.
#bethegift challenge:  Send a note of kindness to someone today that thinks vastly different than you.  Love "the other"!!
