Sketch Frenzy Friday!

Hi!  This is going to be really quick!  Sorry--lots to do today!  I'm in the La Cueva Craft Fair tomorrow from 9am to 4pm!  There's so many last minutes things to get together!!

But, we do have an awesome sketch for you over at the Sketch Frenzy Blog, by Kim:


And, my card:


I stayed simpe with this one!  Snowflake Soiree stamp set, Candlelight Christmas Designer Paper and the Champagne Glimmer Paper!  The snowflake is cut out using the Floral Frames Framelits and Big Shot!  Works perfectly!  The glimmer paper is punched out with the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch!  I embossed the "Merry" with gold embossing powder!  Hope you like it!

Have a GREAT day!

Nacho Average Challenge #22

Good morning!  Time for another great color challenge over at the Nacho Average Challenge Blog!!


These are such fun colors!!  Here's my card:


I finally inked up my new hostess set, Carry On!!  It's such a cute set--and, let's face it, this is a fad right now!!  I see the "keep calm and _____" everywhere!! LOL!!  So, I jumped right on that band wagon and made this super cute birthday card!!  It's a very simple one--I used the challenge colors and just the one stamp set!  That's it!!

Be sure to play along with us--and leave your link on the challenge blog!
