My Card

I'm so excited for The Challenge to be starting back up!  It's been a hectic summer for me and have to admit now I'm glad Lesley gave us such a long break!  I spent part of June going back and forth helping my mom look for a new house.  Then spent all of July moving her from WV to SC.  Definitely a little adventure!

So, I'm glad to be able to slow down some now and get back into the crafty mode.  I mean, Christmas is less than four months away, folks!  EEK!  lol  

Anyway, my friend, Bonnie Klass, let me borrow her set of Tim Holtz' Bird Crazy stamps and dies for a few days, so I've been stamping them like crazy to stock up!  

I used the owl on this card. I thought the snarky sentiments from Lil Inker Designs was good match for that silly looking owl.  I pulled it all together to make it super fun using the color combo from ColourQ this week.  I used some patterned papers from my stash and a strip of black polka dot washi tape.  The scalloped frame is from WPlus9 and the stitched rectangle is Lil' Inkers Designs as well.   The black heart is a Paper Sweeties Sweet Cuts and was on my table looking all lonely so I added it too.

For Following Challenges:

I hope you come play along with us this week at The Challenge!

You might be our next Guest Designer!

The Challenge Blessings!
