Challenge: PPA #105 & SUO #24 Get Well Cards

My mojo sure has returned! I am having a great time playing with one of my newest stamp sets "I {Heart} Hearts". Although it's not new to the Stampin' Up! line, it's new to me and I {Heart} it. I created the card below to be entered into two different challenges - Pals Paper Arts' current colour challenge is using the new in-colours Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade along with Daffodil Delight - a sweet combination, especially for summer.

This will be my first time entering a card at Pals Paper Arts as well as the Stampin' Up! Only Challenge blog. This week at SUO the challenge is to create a Get Well card - something that is always a good idea to have in one's card stash. I'd been wanting to use the stamp "You're in my thoughts; you're in my heart" with "I {Heart} Hearts" since I got it, so thought this would  be a great opportunity to do it. Hope you like it!

Challenge: ColourQ #96

Summer is half over and I sure have been ignoring my craft room - the weather has been so wonderful lately.

The "cue" this week at ColourQ is to use Tempting Turquois, Bashful Blue, Lucky Limeade, Basic Gray, and Whisper White inspired by this Trailing Vines Duvet Cover. These colours are bright and soft at the same time, reminding me of a wild flower field under a bright summer sky. So I decided butterflies (one of my faves) would be perfect for this combination. Hope you like it!
