Three Cards for Sunday

What, only three cards?  Well, turns out that Rachel got most of her homework done yesterday, and we were able to go swimming this afternoon.  Well, I read my book in the shade, but the kids went swimming.

First up is a card for this week's Monday Mood Board #12 from WPlus9.  I was inspired by the colors and the birthday theme.   I am also linking up to this week's Simon Says...Flower Power challenge.  I used a number of images from WPlus9 Magical Moments, as well as sentiments from Hero Arts and PTI.  I used the Happy Harlequin cover plate from PTI as an impression plate.

My next card is for this week's A Blog Named Hero #24 challenge to create a CAS card and uses the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch CTS#28.   I am also entering into this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show:  A Little Paper.

Last up is another card for this week's Fusion Challenge #7, where I am again inspired by the photo.  This card is almost exactly like my earlier entry, but it is an anniversary card.  Today is my 17th anniversary, and I guess I had anniversaries on the brain.

And, since there are flowers and patterned papers, I will be entering this card at the  Simon Says...Flower Power challenge and this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show:  A Little Paper.

  1. Now that is a lot of cards on your anniversary...Happy Anniversary Joyce! I love the really pretty patterned floral and paisley paper you made for yourself. The impression plate really does add a lot to it. I love how you cut it in two and put the sentiment in between. You are going to have to tell me what you used to make those splotches on that second card...It looks perfectly random!
