Trying to catch up!!

I have been so busy with work and I have fallen behind on posting the last couple of days, I do apologize. Second I would like to thank you all for the lovely comments on my cards, they truly mean a lot to me and never fail to put a smile on my face and sometimes I even let out a chuckle which usually causes my husband to ask what is so funny.. I had such a wonderful time being on Gina's Center Stage Spotlight Design Team this last month. It was fun fast paced and so very exciting to be included with such talented ladies. It was so fun to be able to share my cards with you using the fabulous stamps from Gina K Designs.

For my first card I made it for a couple of challenges. the first one is Lee's Double take challenge to use different stamps sets one for the background and a different one for the main image. The second challenge is for Artful Sentiments which is a copic color challenge. I did a wood grain technique on a background using Melanie's newest stamp set Inspiration Mosaic. The horse and sentiment are from Theresa's Outwest set, both stamp sets are from Gina K Designs.

On my second card I made is for JenMarie's color challenge on StampTV, using the colors pink and green. The second challenge is CPS for the sketch, and the third is for Pile-it-on to use three or more flowers. I used two stamps sets from Gina K Designs for this card, Take Flight and Botanical Dreams.

I always have received some awards lately and haven't posted about them. Thank you Tina, Geri and Selma.
