as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

Holiday Palooza of Cards and Challenges

Challenges:  Paper Cutz Challenge #18, Caardvarks Challenge, PPA 17 (Pals Paper Arts), and Color Throwdown #69 (CTD)


A Pumpkin Thanksgiving 

 Paper Cutz Challenge #18  (Thanksgiving Theme) and Caardvarks challenge  (Color It!)



 

Happy Holidays Everyone!  Happy news --- I won my first card challenge over the weekend at CPS, CPS142!  Thank you so much to everyone at CPS for choosing my card, 'Thankful', posted on November 21, 2009.

Seeing as how it is a busy holiday week for everyone, I have been busy finishing up some cards to get posted online for a few challenges and with the post office! The first one, A Pumpkin Thanksgiving, is a completely stamped and colored card save for the stamped sentiment, ribbon and brad embellishments.

Season of Joy  -- PPA 17 and CTD #69





It took me a while to finally decide what to do with this sketch for PPA 17.  I had various ideas and finally wound up with this one.  I am pretty satisfied with the final product.  I used the color combination from this past week's challenge at Color Throwdown #69.  However, as I said, it took me a bit to finally decide how I wanted to do it and so I missed the deadline to submit for CTD.  I loved this color combo and will use it again sometime.  CTD always has wonderful color combos!

Cardstock: Chocolate, Deep red, Cream, Olive.
Stamps:  Daisy and 'season of joy' sentiment, embossed.
Punch: Square
Embellishments:  Brown organdy ribbon, cream silk ribbon, brown flowers, red poinsetta flowers, crystal gems.

Check back later for I may have more postings for today.  Hope everyone has a safe and happy, FULL-filling Thanksgiving!
