Delicate Butterfly

The City Crafter challenge blog is hosting a color challenge this week; the colors are: blue, white, grey and a touch of silver.  I originally thought of making a Christmas card for the challenge, however I saw a pretty card at a craft show that inspired me to create this card for the challenge.
Here is the pretty inspiration picture from City Crafter:
Love this picture board, so pretty.
Thanks for stopping by today :)

Give Thanks...

Next week we will celebrate Thanksgiving, a time to reflect on all things we have to be thankful for.  This week's challenge at AAA Cards is "Thanks / Thanksgiving", perfect challenge for this time of year.
I love Autumn, the scent in the air, the colorful leaves on the trees, the crisp, cool air; I could go on and on. Of course, most people make turkey for Thanksgiving (myself included) and the photo given for the challenge is a turkey (funny looking birds that they are):
Anyway, I'm thankful you stopped by today.  Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours :)

Sworly Birthday...

The Fusion Card Challenge this week included a sketch I like to call "Swirly".  So I used the sketch to create this Birthday card.  There have been quite a few "swirly" sketch cards out in blog-land and all of them are so pretty.  Check out the Fusion blog to see an assortment of lovely cards using this sketch.
Thanks for stopping by today.
The snow has finally stopped, looks like we'll be able to get out :)

So Pretty....

I made this pretty card for the challenge at Casology this week which just happens to be the word: Pretty.  This image is from A day for daisies; wonderful digital images.
Although I some times have trouble with "clean & simple" card making, this image is so pretty I thought I would give it a try.  And, although it's Autumn - a girl always looks so feminine in pink - don't you think :)
So happy you stopped by today :)

Purple and Poppies

This week's challenge at the Fusion Card Challenge is Purple and Poppies.  I was happy to see this challenge as I recently purchased this pretty Penny Black poppy stamp.  I always love red and turquoise together and thought why not add a purple background, Viola!! Love it :)

Here are the sketch and photo from the Fusion blog:

I chose to go with the picture this time.

Glad you stopped by today to view my card :)

Sweet Little Fox

This cute, little fox from Whipper Snapper Designs caught my eye and when I saw this week's sketch challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch I knew I wanted to build my scene around this sweet fox :)

Here's the Sketch:

Thanks for stopping by today.  A nice, crisp Autumn day it is here in Colorado!
