CCEE and Stamping B's Challenges and MFP Blog Hop Enticement

I am pleased to share this card with you today.  I used the newly released set GRANDMA'S BOUDOIR, by Mark's Finest Papers.  This set includes several images and sentiments, all with a vintage, feminine flair.

There is a blog hop going on today.  Go to Mark's Finest Papers Blog to get started on the hop.


This is my combined card for my CCEE Challenge and the Stampin B's Challenge.

We are all entering a time of bright blue skies (for us, spring….for Hoots and others in the Southern Hemisphere, fall).  So I challenged the CCEE team to  make MONOCHROMATIC cards with BLUES  (neutrals allowed).

Faith is our hostess for the Stampin B's this week and she challenged us to use bling.

I have to say that I just love how this card turned out....I don't say that too often....but I just love the blues and the bling.......

Now....you need to go see the fabulous creations by the members of both these talented and dynamic teams.  Here are the links to help you do that.....

Two terrific card.
The first is perfectly girlie girlie and the second, you can't go wrong with blue but I really need to get away from snow. LOL

Both of these are fantastic, Joanne! I love your pink and black corset card, and your blingy & monochromatic winter card is so much fun. Great work!

Nice job with the pink card, that has to be my least favorite image catagory to use.

The little girl is adorable!

Your first card is a frilly and feminine that is perfect. Your darling CCEE card is just too cute.
