Sending Warm Wishes...


3 challenges inspired today's card...

Freshly Made Sketches // #FMS604 ...A sketch challenge!!  I love the brushstroke background called for in this sketch.  It adds a fun dimension.

Color Throwdown Challenge // #ctd761 ...A color challenge!!  The colors called for in this current challenge: orange, navy, mustard, aqua!! I used Stampin Up's Tangerine Tango, Night of Navy, More Mustard, and Tempting Turquoise.

Never Before Used Schtuff // #NBUS54 ...A "never been used" challenge!!  What do you have that has never been used?  It could be something that  you have that is collecting dust or it could be that brand new item that is getting used for the first time.  Today it is a brand new item...a new stencil from A Colorful Life Designs!!

This sentiment is usually used with wintery seasonal card but when you live in Florida you can use it with sun, sand, and surf!!  

Card #2 inspired by 4 challenges...

ABC Christmas Challenge // #13SEPT2023 ...An alphabet challenge!!  T is for three of a kind!!  A trio of wooden laser cut snowflakes...that is my three of a kind.

Jingle Belles // #JB2320 ...A year round Christmas challenge!!  For this challenge we are to be inspired by a favorite Christmas movie.  Mine...any Hallmark Christmas movie fits the bill on this one.  But I picked Let It Snow as the inspiration for my card.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge // #AHSC543 
...A sketch challenge!!  Another fun sketch from the Atlantic Hearts design team...a perfect starting point for this snowflake card.  I used snowflakes in place of the flowers and heat embossed my "let it snow" sentiment.

TicTacToe Challenge // #tttc227 ...A game board challenge!!  My winning three in a row on this tic-tac-toe game board: twine (naturals hemp), embossing (heat embossed my "let it snow" sentiment), and patterned paper (striped Bashful Blue designer paper).
