Made another card using a sweet image named "Birthday Girl" from Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez. I used the image on a card for the Bugaboo Stella Says Sketch Challenge. The two-part sentiment (front and inside) is a freebie from TLC Creations (

Made a card that features a free digi image called "Wine Chef" from for a few current challenges (Simon Says Monday Challenge- Food and/or Drink and SumMoreFun Challenge- I used a few of the  colors on the mood board and the wine glasses mirror the glassware on the inspiration photo.) A freebie sentiment from was used on the inside of the card. I stamped the background with one of my favorite, and old, SU stamp set named Decorative Grapes, and added muted wine colored stripes using an old stencil from Printworks.

For  my final entry into the current Bugaboo color challenge, I used an old birdhouse stamp (that I removed from the wood a while ago. I think it is a Stampendous image), a Northwoods twig wreath, and made a tag by reducing a sentiment from a Beccy's Place digi set named "Just Desserts." Colored the birdhouses to reflect a few of the colors on the inspiration photo.  This is also my final entry into this months "Round & Round" challenge at Power Poppy.
