It's Thursday....Time for Some Challenges

I have a lot to share today, so I will keep it short.....
This is my card for the CCEE Stampers Challenge.  Cindy challenged us to make a card with a butterfly.  The sentiment on this card is from Mark's Finest Papers.  The die is from Cheery Lynn Designs.
The Stampin B's Challenge, hostessed by 'moi', is to make a monochromatic card with blues along with neutral colors AND paper piecing.  For this card I used a set and die from My Favorite Things.


This card was done for last week's Sketch Challenge on SCS  The images are from SU.


This card was done for this week's Sketch Challenge on SCS.  The images are from sets recently released by Innovative Stamp Creations.

I sincerely hope you will stop in to visit the team blogs to see the fab creations by the rest of the team members.  You will be thrilled with the samples, I am sure.  Here are the links to the two team blogs.....and remember you can use the links on my sidebar to get to the individual blogs/galleries of team members.



Thanks so much for stopping by.

What a beautiful array of cards Joanne. I wish I could upload that many at one time. I LOVE your monochromatic blues for the StampinB challenge and fantastic paper piecing. The row of embossing and bling are awesome and the tree looks so cool in front of the circular dp. Wonderful work!

Joanne, WOW!! All of these cards are awesome. You've been so busy in your stamp cave (unlike me, who has been a total slacker paper-wise the past two weeks). Your sheltering tree card is fantastic--I love the monochromatic blues here! And that tree is amazing. :)

Fab butterfly on RED! I love your blue card, and was so surprised you asked for paper piecing...I had to re-read it several times to be sure it wasn't PIERCING! THX for the challenge, GF!! Hugs!

Joanne, you're making such beautiful cards. Each one has the special 'jojot' touch.

Thanks for your kind words on my gallery and blog about the storms. It really warmed my heart. I have some family staying with me now until their power in restored.

Wow, Jo, all these cards are just beautiful. The red one really pops off the page. The one with the tree is really cute, I love the third one, too, the ribbon and colors are so pretty. The last one grabs my eye as you always do fabulous work with black and white, I really like silhouettes.
