A Couple of Challenge Cards!

Hi Kids!

Wow!  Posting two days in a row – pretty good, huh?!  LOL  I’ve been really trying to play along with some of my favorite challenges that I’ve been missing lately, so I’ve got two cards to share with you today.

You Make Me Smile
The first one is the for CARDS/CREATE Gallery Challenge, which is to create a card using lots of JEWELS.  Well, if that isn’t right up my alley, then I don’t know what is!  I recently picked up a super sweet sentiment set and coordinating rainbow and cloud die from Lil Inker Designs – are those clouds not the cutest?!  I blinged out the rainbow and stamped the sentiment on the clouds.  Easy peasy!

The second card I wanted to share with you today is another card for the Clean and Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers – CAS125 – Red, White and Black color challenge.  Maya Road makes some of the most fun stamps and images, and this one is no exception, IMHO.  I stamped the typewriter image onto white CS and fussy cut it out.  I then cut out the piece of typewriter paper, and stamped the X and the O – the alphabet comes with the typewriter image.  Fun, right?!  The stamped text background is from the Papertrey Ink Background Basics: Text Style II set.

CFC08- Getting Edgy Graphic
Before I head out today, I want to remind you about this week’s CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #8, which is to create a clean and simple card and use your border punches, rip some cardstock, whatever your pleasure to add a fun edge.  There are some amazing entries so far, but I didn’t want you to miss out in case you were planning on playing along with us.  You have until 11:59 PM (EDT) TONIGHT – do it!!

I plan to create a few more goodies to share with you this week, so I hope you’ll drop in again real soon!  Thanks so much for your sweet, sweet comments . . . they make me smile.
