Playing Catch Up! :0) Days: 247, 251, & 252

365 Cards Day 247: "Ad Inspired"
Gloria gave us this beautiful pic to be inspired by.

I used a sheet of rub-ons by heidi grace and cut it apart so it would work as a wreath. EACH flower was put on one at a time!! I know I am crazy right?? LOL

I punched a circle in the front so the sentiment would show and used some blue raffia and Happy Fall is from the stamp set Fall Harvest HERE at Stamps and Smiles.
365 Cards Day 251: "Dream Duo"
Pam asked: When you scrap, what are your two favorite colors to work with? Those are the two that I challenge you to work with, and try to stick to shades of only those two colors.

**Well this was a HUGE challenge as I have yummy new paper sitting on my craft table screaming to be used!!** So I tried to be good and not "bend" the rules but the new paper won!** LOL

Penny's Challenge:Winter Theme!but... your project MUST include either glitter or sparkles AND somewhere on there I want to see some ribbon!

** Well a HUGE thank you to Gloria for showing how she organized her ribbon!! I have followed her lead and now I can see what I have so it can be used :0) She does teach me some GOOD things now and then LOL

Simple Doodles: Let's see what you got challenge: open to use any image as long as it is a Simple Doodles one. There are some freebies on past posts for you to use :0)

**This is also a challenge for her next GD!! So if you would like to have 3 of the new digis before they are released head on over and post your card**

Pam.... I used red and green as my two colors and have NO clue how the white got there!! ;0)

I paper pieced the cute little owl it's "Winter Owl" by Simple Doodles , paper: basic grey wassail, sentiment is from Stamps and Smiles "Tis The Season to Be Jolly" set HERE , reddish ribbon, and black (i mean dark red!) rhinestones for the eyes and bling, CB snowflake folder and SU oval and scallop oval.
365 Cards Day 252: "White Space"
Pam says: Just to clarify, because there have been questions in the past, the "white" area doesn't have to be white in color, just keep it free of decorations. **well I tried but the woolie had a mind of it's own!! lol"**
Here is the sketch we were to use:
I LOVE white space challenge days!! :0) It is the only time it takes me less then an hour to make my card lol
paper and woolies: basic grey indian summer, su! punches, k&co bling on tiny leaf, and the sentiment is from Stamps and Smiles "Fall Harvest" set HERE.

Well that is all for today, bet your glad!! LOL :0) Perhaps Glenna is rubbing off on me!! (wink)
