If you "stick with me" then you might see cards with cacti on them. The stamp companies keep coming out with pretty cactus images which want to come live at my house. (Wink.) This prickly card is going to be linking up at the following challenges:
Mermaids always make me think of my daughters when they were young. Both of them loved "The Little Mermaid." So today's card is to honor those long ago sweet memories of them. My mermaid card will be swimming in the following challenges:
I was looking over challenges this morning because I was going to get to play in my "craft cave" (which is actually upstairs...can a cave be high?) Wink. Anyway I saw one which was really a challenge! It was at Curtain Call and had a "Hibiscus" theme. I used to grow them every summer outside in pots on the patio and around the pool. BUT a card challenge...now that is where I had to put on my thinking cap. I was trying to remember if I had any hibiscus stamps and seemed to remember a couple of older Hampton Art sets which had them. Then I remembered a 3x4 little pad of papers by Authentique called Utopia. The very first sheet in the pad was a beautiful hibiscus! The rest is as they say history. Hope you like my very challenging challenge card! This hibiscus card will be blooming at:
Today's card is one I did for Sketch Saturday as part of their design team. It is for Sketch #476 and the sponser is Star Stampz. I used their image called "Bumblebee" and one of my favorite color combos of yellow, white and black. I am also joining the Little Red Wagon challenge of "Bugs and Slugs" and the Mod Squad Challenge of using black and white with one other color. I hope you are having a good day and thanks for stopping by.
