Happy Harvest and Back 2 School!

Well, I got to play a bit this Saturday so here are the cards I got made...


This card is for the Delightful Inspiration by Designed 2 Delight digi stamps progressive challenge. The challenge this week at Double Delight was to do a CAS card so I used the layout from Clean and Simple. Hard to tell but I also pierced two rows down the right side of the card (allsorts challenge blog). When I see pumpkins I think Thanksgiving and November so this is also for Hand Full of Stamps challenge.


My second card was inspired by all the back to school or school themed challenges (Our Creative Corner, Paper Cutz Challenge, Paper Playtime, S2G challenges (+notebook paper), Scrap Creations – Going Grey Challenge (+Basic Grey paper -- the striped paper is BG), Stampin’ for the Weekend). The easel card fits the Charisma Cardz Challenges. The Doodle Dragon Studio's challenge was to use buttons, stitching, and a decorative edge + a DDS image, and at Sew Many Challenges they also wanted sewing. I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday. Although it kinds looks like the bear is laying in a bulls eye, I actually tried to create a little scene with his laying on a rug...not sure that quite worked though. This was inspired by Stampin' B's Design Team challenge. Totally Paper Crafts wanted to see a rainbow and that BG paper fits that perfectly!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful week!
Aloha,

WOW, I love it when you create for fun! Awesome, 2 beautiful totally opposite cards, each unique. Love the CAS (ummm...now what will I do?, can't get it out of my head) and Love the bear on the rug and the quote, I have to keep that one! And the easel design makes it such a neat way to keep it on display for some educator who loves to inspire others...now, who could that be? Talk to you later, Love, SAM aka MOM
