This any occasion card uses this week's Play Date Cafe colors and the current Make It Monday challenge (use leaf dies to make a flower). This card is out of my normal box, a) no stamping, b) lots of patterend paper and b) a non-white or kraft card base. Who knew!
My blog pal Lynn is the guest over at Retro Sketches and I sat down in my messy room with her card for the challenge (which you can spy on my desk-- thanks Lynn for sending it to me) and somehow, despite having all the pieces for a CASEd card, I made a coffee card. Does that happen to you guys? Many thanks to Maureen for the blog candy with the fun Verve Better With You set. And don't you love how my mess is taking over the entire room, ha ha!!! (And I'm going to add this to the fun WOYWD fun, haven't played along in a long time... not that I've ever been clean, and yes, I'm slightly cheating since I took these photos Tuesday morning, but....). And one more challenge, there's a new blog called "A Blog Named Hero" and their challenge is to use one of your favorite Hero Arts stamps, seriously if anyone needs any enabling to buy the Classic Fabric background-- do it! It's great, so versatile and useful.
Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge this week was the perfect sketch to test out my new Die-namics "Let's Toast" set. I love the bright party scene in this month's Jay Gee's Nook challenge, while I'm switched ballons for banners, I'm sure my wine label and bottle of wine will be well received at this party. There are more fun goodies in the MFT set that I'm sure will get some love in my crafty room, maybe after I finish the other cards? Thanks for looking...
