Crazies and Speedy's Friends

Crazy4Challenges -- C4C57
Hostess -- Silke Ledlow
Challenge -- Color Challenge (Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, Kraft, So Saffron, Black)


We have a wonderful sponsor for this week and next -- Verve!!!  Since they are one of my fav companies, I was thrilled to play with their stamps.  I did have to substitute for the Wild Wasabi, and that is why I have olive on my card instead.  Otherwise I was completely true to the colors of the challenge.  I just love the sentiment AND the fact that I finally successfully used my TH flourish die cut.

Now be sure to go check out what should be a fabulous collection of Verve creations at the Crazies blog.

Hostess --
Challenge -- Buttons and Bows

I just love these berries from a set available at Mark's Finest Papers from the Speedy the Cat Designer Collection.  The ribbon also comes from MFP.  The border is by EK Success, and the Label die is from Spellbinders.  Other than that I am sure you can see the process for this creation without a long description.

Be sure to go to the Speedy's Blog to see the creations of the rest of this fab team.

REMEMBER...you too can play along with both of these teams.
