Six challenges - two cards!

The good news is - I was not creating my Mother's Day cards this morning. More good news - at least I know I would have had time to do so, because I did make four cards this morning. One I can't show you, the second is in the post below and there are two here for your viewing pleasure!!


The first one is a challenge for Color Create - blue and green. The second challenge is for The Pink Elephant - they asked for blue, green & White. I have actually been using this combo a lot lately so it was a breeze!! The third challenge this card is for would be the Sweet Sunday Sketch (#17) over at Karen's blog. I found her a few weeks ago when I made THIS card. I am glad I was able to participate again this week.



The second card is also for three challenges (I know you're surprised that I would combine challenges! LOL) It is for the 365 Sunday Sketch and it is for Caardvarks "Don't Quote Me" challenge. The stamp is Unity - from one of their KOTMs. I don't recall which one though. I really LOVE this card - I am just not sure why. The third challenge this is 2 Red Bananas - Glitter Me Silly! The patterned paper and the scalloped piece are both "glittered".






Those papers are nice and sparkly!! They're from a mat stack by DCWV that I picked up yesterday for $4.97 on clearance!! So if you live near a Michael's - they have some good stuff on sale! It is definitely a CAS card. Just a few rhinestones to dress it up!


And that's it for this post! Since it's Mother's Day - I would love to wish all my Mom Readers out there a Happy Mother's Day! Also, don't for get my BLOG CANDY - there's more than one way to win, so check it out!
