The Card Concept - 19

Happy Wednesday! Hope your week is going well so far. I have one card to share with you today and it is for the new challenge at The Card Concept #19 and the challenge is a color challenge and the colors are fabulous and so perfect for this time of year. Don't you just love them! I used both the colors and the photo for inspiration but I really struggled on the layering for my card. My style of card for this challenge is clean and layered, I think I got the clean portion and to make it layered I used 3 leaves glued together to give it some dimension. Hope you will find the time to play along, I so love seeing all your beautiful cards. Before I forget, I am using a new Happy Thanksgiving stamp so I am posting my card on Darnell's NBUS challenge. Thank you so much for taking time to stop by...enjoy the rest of your week!

Surprise! Happy Birthday Bev!

You have to start with a yummy cake...
Some party favors too.... 

and some fun treats....

Today is Bev's birthday and you can see all of her wonderful creations on her blog...Happy Dance, and I promise you will be doing a happy dance once you see all of her beautiful cards. Bev always remembers everyone's birthday and now it is our turn to surprise her with a festive party.  Darnell and Ardyth are the smart party planners for Bev's little soiree.  If you have not made a card to celebrate and play along you have plenty of time and can link up your card on Ardyth's blog here.  
Bev, wishing you a wonderful day and hope it is filled with lots of love and yummy treats too.  For Bev's  birthday card I decided to CAS one of her cards, I fell in love with her Muse card, there was something about that the beautiful orange paired with the shiny mirror blue paper. I did not have any of the blue card stock so I went with some glitter paper, it is a birthday card so why not bling it up a bit! Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your week!

Waltzingmouse Pajama Party

It has been way too long time since I have pulled out my Waltzingmouse stamps, and with their pajama party, it was the perfect opportunity. They have 4 challenges going on and I have a card/tag for each one.

My first card is for the Doodle Do challenge, where you do some doodling on your lettering. I used my NBUS set from WM, Tis the Season, stamped it in red and pulled out a silver pen for a bit of bling. 

My second card is Too Cute to Spook, you pull out stamps to make a kid friendly Halloween card. In my opinion, WM makes some of the best Halloween stamps out there, so many fun and creepy images to play with. 

The third challenge was to pull out some "old pajama's" for Christmas. I decided to make a tag for this one and used Santa's Coming To Town stamps. I love the Santa head image. 

Their final challenge is Bedtime Story and using a sketch and I decided to balance things out, I have two Christmas projects and needed one more Halloween, so my final card is using the sketch for a Halloween card. 

All 3 of my cards are made using some NBUS, stamps on the first 2 cards and paper on the final card, so I will entering these in Darnell's challenge, you can find the link here to play along.

Hello and Happy Tuesday! It is time again for this week's ColourQ Challenge #258 and what a beautiful collection of colors. So so pretty together, don't you think? I pulled out some NBUS so I would be able to play along with Darnell's second NBUS challenge, the link to play along is here.  I have several Lawn Fawn sets that have never seen ink and decided to pull out Wish You Were Here, I love that stamp of the United States. I hope you have time to play along this week at ColourQ, I look forward to seeing all your wonderful cards. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy your week!
