Saturday Challenges

I took some more time this morning to play in a few more challenges.

I am joining in with Connie & Mary Create #298.  My SU stamps were feeling extremely neglected and needed some ink ;).  I used the fun sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #131.

CCMC298
I used 3 different sets for my card; Lots of Thoughts, Painted Garden and Best Blossoms.  I am not even going to look to link these sets since I am sure they are all retired.  One thing about SU images, retired or not, they are amazing stamps and I just can't bring myself to sell them!



I also am joining in over at SCS Inspiration challenge.  It has been forever since I played in this challenge!  I needed an 80th birthday card and found this photo.  Perfect, very celebratory!
Everything Matters!


I used the Hero Arts, Brush Strokes along with Zing Teal & Aqua embossing powder.  I adore the vivid colors of this powder.  I misted with Mister Huey's Opaque White color mist.  My numbers are PTI By the Number.  I think my girlfriend's husband will like this.

That's all for me today.  Have a great week end.  See you Monday!


Thanks for stopping by~

Your cards really pop. I love the festive colors. The design of the second is particularly a standout. The fireworks effect is delightful.

Terrific cards! Love the colours and your treatment of the challenges is great. I have popped over from Freshly Made Sketches because your link caught my eye. So glad that I took the time - you have a lovely blog and I agree with your sentiments regarding SU stamps, they never lose their style lol

On your flower card, you used one of my all-time favorite Stampin' Up! flower sets! LOVE the colors with the gingham. Great job! Thanks for playing along with the Create with Connie and March color challenge this week!

Great job with the color combo for Create with Connie and Mary this week! I like how you have the flowers gently "falling" down the edge of your card. I also really like the rhinestone centers.

It is amazing how current 'stuff' makes old sets just come to life again! This set was absolutely PERFECT for the color challenge - so happy! Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!
