More Challenges

I have all my October DT work created so that means I get to play in some challenges!  Since Christmas is only 10 Fridays away (!) I need to get my stash filled up for mailing!  Then again, there are still birthdays to acknowledge.  So I joined in a couple of challenges.

The first one is the Paper Players PP563; Clean and Simple Birthday.


I enjoy making easy cards, especially with a big ole balloon (MFT Party Balloons).  By keeping the balloon a darker color, it will work perfectly for a masculine card (which I use a lot) . 

My hb is from a retired Hero Arts stamp set, Say It All.


For my 2nd challenge, I joined in again at Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge #2 - again, a fabulous mood board.

I was drawn to the blue of the pine cones, the checked stockings and the joy on the fireplace shelf.

All the products used for this card are no longer available. Part of the reason I play in challenges is so I can use all my products - retired or not.  (Sucks for you all if you liked the images though. SBT)

That's it for today.  I might even join in a couple of more challenges later, but I'll share those tomorrow if I do.  Thanks challenges it was fun~

Thanks for stopping by~

Vicki, CAS perfection. That richly colored balloon looks as though it is popping off the page. And you know all that white space makes my CAS loving heart so happy

Oh Vic this is AWESOME! I know what you mean about having ALL these amazing products that are no longer available ... glad you're having fun using some of them and even though we can't get the exact item, your design is fabulous inspiration that we can surely use with the many products we all have lol. Great job! Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our Peace On Earth Christmas challenge! Good Luck and we hope you’ll come back often.
