Speedy's Friends and Crazy4Challenges Combo

Lovin' it when I can combine challenges and have more 'play' time during the week.  Cindy Haffner is our Crazy4Challenges hostess for the month of November and her first week's challenge was to make a square card.  Harriet is our hostess this week for the Speedy's Friends Challenge, and piercing is what she asked us to use.

The image and sentiment come from a set soon to be released by Mark's Finest Papers from their Speedy the Cat Designer Collection called Bells on Bobtail.

The checkerboard paper was computer generated (actually was a leftover from my Tea Party NASCAR card).  The snowflakes were created from both a Marvy snowflake punch and a Martha Stewart snowflake punch.

Now be sure to visit both team blogs.  Here are the links to get you there.

AND NOW....since I combined those two challenges, I had some time to play yesterday.  I decided to play with a sketch from My Favorite Things and my fellow Crazies, Cindy and Frances.  Here is their sketch.

I decided to do two versions with the sketch with many of the same elements on both, but with totally different themes.

The first version is my SWEET version, using a Pure Innocence image and sentiment from My Favorite Things.  Isn't this boy with his pooch just precious???


After making that card, I went to get the mail and a little manila envelope held my new Bugaboo Stamps from Totally Stampalicious, so of course I had to play and make my SASSY version of this same card.  I already know who will receive this card..........
She just cracks me up!!!! This will also be entered into the Totally Stampalicious Challenge which was to use a RED bow.

Amazing how these two cards are so similar and yet totally DIFFERENT in tone!!!!

Hoping you are enjoying the start of a fabulous weekend.

Joanne all of your cards are awesome as always! Of course I love the black, white and red card card with the piercing - I know piercing isn't a challenge for you but it is for me and I rarely use it. Anyway you always inspire me!
