More Challenges!

Since my blog is open on Mondays now, I wanted to have a new post for you all, so I went shopping for challenges.  Actually, I just read the emails I get sent! :)

I combined this SUPER SIMPLE CAS card for 2 challenges.  The Paper Players is to have a flower, and The Pals Paper Arts is use red. HA!  I love this card -- I think it rocks in its simplicity~  That fact I was able to use it in 2 challenges - total bonus! :)  I would tell you who the rose is from, but I have absolutely no idea!  It's cute though huh? The "forever" is from Papertrey's Framed.


This next challenge is a huge one from Papertrey Ink.  It is their 5 year anniversary and they are having a blow out celebration over the next 10 days being lead by Nicole Heady.  Today's challenge was to make a card being inspired from your favorite DT's list of favorites.  I adore Dawn McVey.  The girl started me on my CAS adventure, and I am constantly inspired by her style.  She likes Raspberry Fizz buttons (I used the ink), and Mat 4 (I used Nesties Labels 4).  The stamp set she liked, I don't have, so I used my Harvest Berries.  I have had this set for months (!) and have never used it~ good grief.  I used it like a self stamped background.  My sentiment is from this same set, and Friend is from Framed.  To be honest, I am not sure about this card -- it's okay, but not one that just grabs my attention.  Oh well, it is late, and I am tired.  There is also about 250 entries for this contest.  I have 9 more challenges.... I'll be positive.
Thanks Dawn for all your inspiration you have given me over the last couple of years - I totally appreciate it.
To all you peeps out there, I also appreciate all of you for following and subscribing to my email   posts!  You are the reason for this blog~
Thanks for stopping by~
ps - did you notice I did not use my gems?  I hate this photo - LOL

Way to combine two of my favorite challenges with your super CAS card, Vicki! It is hard to make a card this simple look this fabulous...but you hit it out of the ballpark! Thanks for playing with the Pals at Pals Paper Arts AND playing with The Paper Players, too!

I too am enthralled with the work Dawn McVey does. Yours is also inspiring. Love the first, very simple card. I've been moving to more CAS lately and really like it. Keep up your gorgeous work. I discovered your blog recently, but it quickly became a regular go to site, along with Dawn's. Love PTI products too.
