Challenge: ColourQ #78

The "cue" this week at ColourQ is to use Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, Kraft, Early Espresso and Whisper White inspired by these "delicious" sweet treats. I love the combination of the pink, green and soft neutrals. Crumb Cake is my ultimate favourite kraft colour - it's soft and yummy :)

Challenge: Manly Card

This week's Wacky Wednesday Challenge at More than Favors is to make something manly - always a challenge! I made this card for my Dad for his birthday and he quite liked it. I think the brads kind of look like cuff links :)

Challenge: Spring

It's time for Robyn's third monthly interactive blog hop over at The Pink Stamper:
This month the challenge was to create something Spring related. There was so much great inspiration in the hop I was full of many ideas! When I think of Spring I usually picture green grass, flowers and butterflies - everything coming back alive after a long Winter's rest. So, I created this cute card with lots of pink and green :)

Challenge: Zoo Theme

Paula, over at More Than Favors, is challenging us to create a project with a zoo theme for Wacky Wednesday. I just got in my Stampin' Up! Fox and Friends Stamp Set and was excited that I could put it to the challenge this week! I also just picked up a Stampin' Around Jumbo Wheel and have been itching to play! I am planning on using these cute little guys for my baby thank you cards (due in a month). I especially love the little owl and monkey - adorable!

Challenge: Feathers

Robyn over at My Pink Stamper is having another challenge; we're to make any project featuring a feathered friend. I am absolutely in love with owls, so I had to create this cute little owl on MTC. I made it into a get-well card (hence the hugs and kisses) for one of my friends as her whole household, including her little baby boy, is sick.
