YAY!! Something new!!

I've been so busy working on my new blog and trying to learn more about making it better and more appealing that I haven't done any stamping!! Oh my!!! Well... that changed today. I made a couple of cards and they fit tons of challenges so please bear with me.

I'll start with my card for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.  Mercy does a wonderful job with her sketches. I just love to work 'em up.  The main image is from Inkadinkado and is called Birds Galore.  This is actually a set I won for a give-a-way by Chris at Catt's Scratching Post.  What a blast it is to WIN something!!!  Actually I won two separate items within a few days of each other.  FUN!!  Now, it'll probably be years before I win anything again!  LOL

This card also fits the Our Creative Corner Challenge.  They challenged us to find inspiration in one or both of the journals by Monique Duval listed on their blog.  I loved the colors so they are both incorporated into my card.  And finally... I'll enter it into the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge.  They are just starting back up with new challenges and I say a big 'welcome back'!  This week they're using a color challenge... orange, brown and leafy green.  I hit 'em all!

This next card fits several challenges.  Let's see if I can get them all in...

1.  Bronte and Bella's Challenge - use 'perple' as it's Bella and Bronte's favorite.  Of course, we have to use a Mo Manning image as well.  I've opted for 'the big one' this time.  This little fella reminds me sooo much of my grandson Nash.

2.  Next is the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge which is such a fun challenge.  This week they have cupcakes in black cups with purple frosting, navy stars and pumpkin candies on top.  Soooo cute!

3.  The Pink Elephant (TPE) is also one I really enjoy working on.  This week it's a color challenge... black, orange, purple and white.

4.  A Spoonful of Sugar - Halloween.  If it's pumpkiny, it's halloween, right?

5.  Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Halloween again.  They have some great DT sample projects!!

6.  Friday Sketchers - where my layout came from.  They always have great sketches too!

That's it for tonight.  As I progress and get more used to blogging, I'll provide more information about supplies used, etc.

Thanks for coming by.
