Paper Cupcakes Challenge Card

I used the "On The Road Again" image this week for the Paper Cupcakes challenge. We were challenged to use three ribbons on our card, excluding white. We could use 3 ribbons in 3 different ways, use 3 different color ribbons or use 3 different colors of ribbon. We would love for you to drop by the blog to check out the other designer's cards and get the details of the challenge so you can play along with us. Hope to see you at the Paper Cupcake's Challenge Blog .

I have had family visiting from California and Nevada for the last five days. We had a great time, but it went by way too fast. They had to leave today and I miss them already. Even my dogs seems to miss them, they are being very quiet today. I wish they could have stayed longer, but I am sure they were ready to get headed home. They have two fur babies at home that they are missing terribly. I sure know all about missing those fur babies since I have five of my own.

Hope you have a wonderful week jam packed with lots of good things.

Thanks for dropping by.

Twisted Sister CAS Challenge Card

Here is the card I made for the Twisted Sister challenge this week. I was a little late in getting it done, but my motto is "better late than never". Carroll Ann gave the challenge this week. She challenged us to make a CAS card and use the colors crumbcake, razzleberry, old olive and very vanilla. I did not have crumbcake so I substituted this tan color. The olive was used on the stems of the flowers. I used my favorite SU celebration set of all times, Happy Harmony. This was a fun and easy card. Makes me wonder why I don't do all CAS cards. KWIM?

Paper Cupcakes Challenge Card

The challenge this week for Paper Cupcakes was to use this cute little chick image and to use the colors pink and brown. This was really a fun image to work with. The bow on the front is a fork bow. I used the biggest fork I could find in my kitchen. Please feel free to play along with us in the challenge. You can find the details over at the "There's Magic In The Air" blog Nina has the image posted on the blog for free so what is stopping you from joining us today? See you there.

Twisted Sister Challenge Card

The Twisted Sister Challenge was given by Sylvia aka Silly Filly today. She asked us to make a card that was not a rectangle or a square, must have 3 layers, embossing, ribbon and a flower.
I used a boot template from The Cutting Cafe. I chose a wild dp by Paper Studio, I dry embossed the top and the sole of the boot. I used a white gel pen for the stitching, added silver cording for the shoe lace of the boot, then hot glued pom poms on them and added the flower so I would be in compliance with challenge. If you would like to play along with us, use the keyword TSC0812 when you upload on SCS.

It is hard to believe that August is almost half over. It is passing by so fast. The good thing is, at least it has cooled off here. The last two weeks had been terribly hot. I know when my sister reads this, she will be hoping the cooler weather is here when she comes in two weeks to visit from California. She hates both the heat and the humidity we have.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all have a great weekend.

Paper Cupcakes and the CCEE Challenge for this week.

I had fun with my Paper Cupcakes challenge this week. We were challenged to use and animal image an go wild with it. Well, I guess this is about as wild as I get. I thought the animal print ribbon was a nice addition for a going wild theme. I used the layout for the mojo202 challenge.

The CCEE challenge for this week was based on facts that Charlene found on about glass. INTERESTING FACT: "When glass breaks, the cracks move at speeds of up to 3,000 miles per hour." I decided to use an old SU stamp set called Window on the World and make a Christmas card. It won't be long before we are racing to get all our Christmas cards made and getting them ready to mail.
