Today is Color Challenge Day!! Yeah!! I love the color challenge, although using pool party, taken with teal, and white hardly seems like a challenge. We were to try just using a sentiment. I used two embossing folders and brayered ink on the white embossed sheets. I popped up some of the layers, added my sentiment, and a few blue pearls. I like how it turned out.

This card was made for the 91st Speedy Fox Challenge. The image is from the set Cowgirls Rule from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Co. You can't see it very well, but the red panel is embossed with the Happy Birthday folder. I watercolored the image, and paper pieced the girl's shirt. I did some paper piercing, and added some twine around some rustic brads that you can also find at MFP, A Heinrich Co.

Yesterday I grabbed this image and colored it with prisma colored pencils. Today I planned my layout and finished the card. I put a nice sentiment on it from an old SU set called All I Have Seen. I love God's creation. I love to be outdoors and see all the wonderful nature God has created. When I see a deer or fawn, I consider it a real blessing.

This card was made for the Speedy Fox Challenge #90 - to use an edge punch. I used a punch from Martha Stewart. My colored cardstock is amethyst and pear pizzazz. I also used a piece of Basic Grey designer paper. My roses are from the Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Co.'s new set titled Love Remains. I watercolored them.

Today's card was made for the color challenge - to use blushing bride, red riding hood red, and baja breeze. I used ruby red instead of red riding hood red. I used chocolate chip and hazel nut tan as my neutrals. I watercolored my horse and girl. I paper pieced the girl's shirt. I used two different embossing folders, and a piece of baja breeze dp. I added 2 brads and some twine. The image is a sneak peek of Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. called Cowgirls Rule. It was a fun card to make, and I like how it turned out.

This card was made for the featured stamper's challenge. The featured stamper this week is Lunar Lana. I love the way she makes cards with beautifully coordinating papers. I have always admired that. The card of hers that I cased, is this
I pretty much copied right off of her - using coordinating designer papers from Basic Grey. I used the ribbon and button as she did also. I paper pierced on my sentiment which was different, as well as using the tea cup image from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company. This was also the first card I uploaded with their new watermark. I'm excited to be on their blog designer team.
Enjoy the first day of the New Year, and decide to make it a good one. :>)
