Octopus cards for 3 challenges



I originally made these cards for the August challenge at Twofer Card Challenge (Nautical) and discovered they also fit 2 other challenges Cupcake Inspirations (Glitter) and Just Us Girls (Circles), so here they are :)

Twofer card challenge - Nautical - 1 card is a Thank you card and the other is a funny co-worker card


Just Us Girls - Circles

Die Cut Divas - a HOT challenge


This month's challenge at Die Cut Divas is HOT!  The challenge is sponsored by
and the winner will receive a $25 gift code from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Since it's Summer in the United States I saw the word HOT as HOT weather (too darn hot for my liking) and thought of our trip to Africa a few years ago.  The African lands are dry and hot and the animals that live there are so beautiful.  My DT card has some of the many animals we saw in Africa with a cute little safari man and his jeep.

Please stop by the blog for inspiration from the DT and please share your HOT creations with us.

A Place to Start - A Crafty Piece of Mine


Good Morning, we have a new challenge starting today at A Place to Start - paper piecing.  The idea is to use "designed paper" on a section of your stamped image; for my DT card I used green polka dot paper for the woman's pants.

Please head over to A Place to Start for some wonderful inspiration from all of the DT members, we love to have you share your creations with us.

Thank you for stopping by today :)

Normal?? What's that??


The Rabbit Hole is a new stamp company that has a number of creatures with coffee cups.  I have quite a few of these stamps, the Octopus is my favorite.  When I saw the "S is for Sea" challenge at The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers I just knew the little Octo would fit the bill.


So happy you stopped by today, think I'll grab a cuppa coffee and enjoy it :)

Beautiful Day


Don't you just love butterflies, I sure do.  I saw the challenge at Inspirational which is the word prompt "FOLD" so I made a tri-fold fold card with pretty flowers and butterflies.

The butterfly die cut and the sentiment are both from Poppy Stamps.  The smaller butterfly dies are Memory Box.  Here's the open card:
