It's November!

This post begins the November's Card Challenges...
Can you believe it's now
NOVEMBER?
Time flies when you're having fun, right?

This first card is "FRIENDS" - it features a Gray, Steel Blue and Yellow color scheme. It features the SU's owl punch - boy & girl - glittered; embossed background, SU's designer paper, steel blue stitching, metal flower embellishments, brads, loose bead dangle and stamped "Friends"




CR84FN41 Color Challenge using Steel Blue, Gray and Yellow. Used card stock, designer paper, brads, embellishments - all with color scheme.

The Moxie Fab Challenge - picture trigger (right) "Beads & Baubles". Inspired by the color scheme of the jewelry - added yellow flowers, glitter and beads to accent this card project.

Anything Goes Challenge #53 "Stitches - Real or Faux" Used the sewing machine to add a large "zig-zag" stitch in steel blue to the project.

Crafty Pad Challenge #145 - "Friendship" Added the Owl boy/girl couple and a "Friends" stamp - perfect for a friendship theme card.


Next card project is "It's Your Day..." - love this one! This punched hamburger was colored w/copic markers; GKD designer paper, card stock & ribbon, nestie die-cuts, brown ink, "It's Your Day... ENJOY" stamp and gold brads complete this project.
It's entered it the icopic Challenge #54 - Manly Theme (what better way to a man's heart - than a hamburger!!)

This project is a HARVEST card featuring a punched
pumpkin. It has a Brown, Olive, White and Orange color scheme - all harvest colors! The focal point is the framed pumpkin; the frame was created by Nestabilities - embossed and cut squares. Paper piecing on the bottom of card, brown ribbon and paper piercing inside the frame added creativity to this card for the Fall season.

This card project was entered in the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #134 - picture trigger (left). Color scheme of olive, white and orange - inspiration from the stripes, polka-dots and pumpkins.

One Stop Craft Challenge - this week's challenge is "No Sentiment"

Also the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge. This week's Challenge #136 - "Borders & Frames" - the frame was created byNestabilities - embossed and cut squares - creates the focal point around the punched pumpkin.

Thanks for stopping by! Wishing you a wonderful and productive week! It's HUMP day! Remember to hug the ones that you love the most! Until next time...
