Thanks for being here, hope you like Autumn as much as I do :)

Poppy Sketch #11

I have recently found another card challenge site called Poppy Sketches.  I think I've said this before, sketch challenges are my favorite and this challenge not only gives a sketch, but some colors to inspire us.  I made the following card for this week's Poppy sketch #11:

Here is the sketch and color combo we were asked to used:

Apologies for the dark photo of my card, just couldn't seem to get the photo brighter today.  The poppies on my card are a Whipper Snapper stamp; great stamps I really like them.

Glad you stopped by today.  Enjoy the Summer flowers,
the Autumn flowers will be here soon :)

Cutting Edge #8

I've been very into die cutting these days and the Cutting Edge challenges are just that, die cuts.  I made this card for this week's challenge #8, unfortunately I was too late to submit to the challenge :(:

Here is the inspiration card by Kay Miller:

The large scallop frame & the stitched frame are Mama Elephant dies.  All other die cuts on my card were sent to me by a stamping friend in Australia and the sentiment is a Memory Box stamp.

So glad you stopped by, pretty flowers always make my day :)

Be inspired.....

This week's challenge at The Card Concept is to be inspired by this photo:

The leafy pattern on the bed spread is what immediately caught my eye and I was inspired to use a large tree stamp I've had for some time and have never used, here's my card:

The tree stamp is from Holly Berry House, you must check this company out, such a gem, and the cards and examples at the store in Colorado City, CO are amazing.  The Just because stamp is from Technique Tuesday.

Thanks for stopping by today, trees are such a beautiful wonder.
My Dad loved trees and had favorites he would point out to us on drives around town :)
