Paper Playtime Challenge #82 Polka Dots + a Sentiment

Good morning, everyone --

I was so excited when I was watching Mary's video from www.cardztv.blogspot.com on YouTube and found out Paper Playtime http://www.paperplaytime.blogspot.com/ was having a challenge using polka dots and a sentiment.  I was so excited because two of the cards that I made this weekend fit in this challenge -- so why not enter and join in on the fun.  The winner of the challenge receives a Close to My Heart "Chalkboard Special Kit".

Well here are my cards for this challenge.  The first card I used the Cricut Sentimentals cart to cut out the owl and Elegant Edges for the scallop shape.  The polka dots on this card came from the DCWV Linen Closet Stack.   My second card with the little snowman was a super simple card.  I used my Cuttlebug to emboss snow flakes on a sparkly blue paper.  My snowman and sentiment stamps are from Fiskars "Tis the Season" stamp set.  The polka dots came from DCWV Stack 7.

Thanks for taking a look!  See you later,

CardzTV Stamps Design Team Challenge #13 "Color Me Happy"

Oh, my, I can't believe it has been soooo long since I last posted.  I am determined to get back to making some cards every week and entering some challenges.  The kids will be back in school, and I hope I can find some free time to do some card making.  I really miss it.  I have had a great time making my card for the CardzTV challenge www.cardztv.blogspot.com.  The challenge was to make a card, craft or project using only the colors, royal blue, rich purple, marigold yellow and gray.  You could also use a small amount of white and black.

I saw that Sarah of the Design Team had also used this cute Koala bear from Cricut's Create a Critter cartridge.  Her card reminded me that I had made this little guy a while back but have never used him.  He is so cute and fits the challenge perfectly.  Thanks, Sarah, for reminding me about him.

I matted my gray card base with some papers from a Momenta card stack that I had purchased at Tuesday Morning.  I love the rich colors of this pack.  I have also used this cardstock to make a photo album for my sister-in-law's birthday.  I used some paper flowers from Kaiserscrapbook to make his little posey and put a little bling in the middle. I then put him on an Action Wobble.  The stamp is from Fiskar's Romance stamp set.  I am loving the way this card has turned out.

Well, talk to you later, and I certainly hope it isn't as long as the last time.  Have a great Sunday!
