In The Pink

Had a bit of time to play in the stamp cave today.  AND.....by the looks of it, I was in a PINK mood.  This first card was done for the WaltzingMouse Challenge, their very first.  This gave me a chance to use this stitched heart image from that company.  I also go to use some new punches.....which I LOVE!!!


This second card was done for a sketch challenge at Sketch Saturday.  I did an A-2 card instead of a square card, but otherwise I stayed true to the sketch.  The flower is from SU and the sentiment is from The Little Paper Shop.


This third card was done for challenges as well.  I used the sketch from the ODBD challenge (just flipped it on its side) and I did buttons and bows for the Speedy's Friends challenge.  The flower I used is by Innovative Stamp Creations, while the 'medallion' surrounding it is by Waltzingmouse Stamps.


This last card was done for the Inspiration Challenge on SCS.  It was inspired by some designer sheets/bedding I found on the inspiration site.

Thanks so much for stopping in.  I enjoy company!!!
