MFP Release AND Tea Party Destination Station PLUS a CAS


As a member of the challenge DT for Mark's Finest Papers, I am not participating in the blog hop, but I thought I would share a card made with Autumn Fun, one of the sets being released this week.  If you interested in hopping, START HERE and then follow the directions given there.

You are going to be seeing a lot of butterflies fluttering around the gallery today.  The Teapot Tuesday Challenge involves butterfles.  We are making these cards for a fellow SCS stamper who is on a tough journey right now......chemotherapy for cancer.  If you have an extra minute or two, you could certainly make someone's day.  Be sure to go HERE and click on the challenge with the blue arrow for details.

I used this butterfly stamp from Innovative Stamp Creations.  I 'borrowed' the stamp from an MFT set.

This was also done for the

Papers, Scissors, and Rocks Challenge (heat embossing)
Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp'en Challenge (anything goes)
The Crafty Pad Challenge (a color challenge)
Pile It On Challenge (multilayers)
I do not often play in the CAS Challenge on SCS, but today I thought I would give it a try as it was a sketch.  I used this fab Santa from Flourishes.

This card was also done for the

 Christmas Card Challenge (CAS)
Crafty Cardmakers Challenge (CAS)
Paper Sundaes (mixed media -- Copics and chalk)

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you are having a fabulous day!!!

Beautiful cards Joanne!! I really like the Santa you did with that CAS sketch, wowee!! Just to let you know, the Flourishes has a Christmas card challenge on the SCS site, one a month, and if you win, you can pick one of their Christmas sets. I think this month is "blue Christmas"...you have to use Flourishes stamps though. I wonder how jolly St. Nick would look with blue cheeks?

Nana said...
