Merriest wishes - CCC #29


Happy Father's Day!  {That is if any fathers happen to ever read my blog!}

It's time for another Christmas card for the challenge at Christmas Card Challenges!  This week, we've got a color challenge for you!   That's why this card is a little different from my "usual" cards.  I tend to be very traditional red/green for Christmas, but it's fun to mix it up a little now and then...



My cardstock and polka dot DP are from my scraps.  I used a MS border punch on the DP and the striped vellum.  The wavy bit and the large image are stickers from a Paper Studio pack.  The clear sentiment is Momenta.  It is cut out with a Tiny Tags die from Simon Says Stamp. 

Here's our color inspiration for you...



*But remember the only rule is that you need to make a Christmas/holiday card*  These are definitely not your traditional Christmas colors, but they are beautiful and we can't wait to see what you do with them!! 

Challenges...
ABC Christmas Challenge - L is for... Layers, Light pink ;)
Holly Jolly Christmas #74 - tag it (the top is tucked behind the image, but my sentiment is on a tag)
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas #286 - cute or anything Christmas

Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!!

Hi - TMS #356


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  



This was a fun image to color Though I have to say that I really dislike bugs!  In the fall, we have some kind of bug that is similar to a lady bug that they tell me has some good use on the farms around, but I just hate them in my house!!!  
Pardon the rant... now on to the details...
My paper was a scrap that I distressed.  The "hi" is a Stampendous clear stamp and cut out with Spellbinders Circles.  My image is BUGLBDAISY ladybug daisy (colored with Spectrum Noir markers) from Bugaboo... our sponsor this week!  Play along for a chance to win 7 images of your choice from Bugaboo Stamps!!

 


Here's our awesome sketch for the week...


  

Challenges...
Addicted to Stamps #128 - flowers
Whoopsie Daisy - bring on summer
{Cupcake Inspirations} Challenge #364 - photo inspiration (I was inspired by the flowers and colors)
