September Challenge Cards

Happy Fall!  I'm looking forward to the leaves turning soon.  It's making me want to create some Fall cards...

But for now, let's see the cards Michelle and I made for September's challenge :)

Here was the challenge:

First up is Michelle's card that inspired the design and colors of the challenge.  I love the double bow on this card - it is so beautiful!  I also love the color placement - simply beautiful, Michelle!

Next up is my card.  See?  I told you I was feeling Fall!  I used this stamp that I got last year and have been wanting to use for a while.  I used my markers to color the stamp and then put it to paper.  I then used my new Brother Scan n Cut to cut out the image and mats for the image.  I love how it turned out.

Great challenge, Michelle!  I'm looking forward to next month.  It sure will be a challenge since I haven't scrapbooked in about a decade!!! 

I wish you all a wonderful weekend and thanks for looking!

SU Little Debbie Challenge!

As I said, I do love a challenge :)

My sister's SU! group started up a monthly color challenge.  I want to participate and join in the fun.  So, I created this card for these colors.  I love the colors together, but when trying to figure out what to do, I had a really hard time.  Thus, the many layers.  Feels a bit like cheating, but that's okay!  I did it anyway ;)

Check out the colors that our resident color expert (Gaylyn) picked for September:

 And here is my card.  I love this little bird set and thought I could use all of the colors in this one image.  There was just too much blank space for my taste, so I added the clear buttons with some Island Indigo twine.  Love those buttons!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

My Curvy Keepsakes Box

My sister and upline challenged her team to make a Curvy Keepsakes Box recently.  She holds monthly meetings and for those of us that cannot attend, she mailed the pieces to us! 

I love challenges :)

I was thinking of making mine into a rabbit, but time didn't allow for me to spend all of the time figuring it out, so instead I grabbed a stamp set I haven't had a chance to use yet and the new tree set and punch.  I even sponged the top to give the top of the box a little more color and contrast.

This is what I ended up making:

Thanks, Debbie!  This sure was fun :)  Check out what Debbie and some of my stamping sisters created on Debbie's blog here!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
