Woah, we're half way there...

Good Thursday Morning to you all!! I hope you all are having very mild Autumn weather like we are here.

Challenge #1: SPCC hosts Finally Friday and I wanted to show my support to Sami, DT and the guest hosts. Each week SPCC selects a Finally Friday host and that person hosts a challenge of their choice.

Last Friday, the Finally Friday host was Julie (check out her challenge here). Julie's challenge is the Power of Three.

The week before, the Finally Friday host was Erin (check out her challenge here). Erin's challenge is to use designer paper and to make a cheer up/get well card.

I combined both Finally Friday challenges and came up with this simple card:

1. Power of three:

2. Designer paper and 3. Cheer up:

Card Ingredients: Deja Views paper; Recollections and The Paper Co cardstock; K&Co border and flower embellishments; me and my BIG ideas gems.

PS: Thanks for the Copics and nice note Sami! xoxo


Challenge #2: The Pink Elephant is up with this great sketch this week.

I took the opportunity to make a Christmas card.

Let's get close up ;)

Card Ingredients: Recollections and Bazill cardstock; K&Co embellishments; Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl folder; me and my BIG ideas gems.

Happy Thursday!! See you all tomorrow!!!

Well Deanne, once again I'm in awe of your creations. Your first card is so elegant, and your second card reminds us that Christmas is only 3 months away. You did a terrific job for both the challenges. A delight to check out nightly! Thanks for that :) :) :)
