Three challenge cards

Hi everyone! I have a couple challenge cards to share. First up is Mercy's Tuesday sketch. This is not the new one today, but last week's, MTSC45. I used some of the Cosmo Cricket, Nutmeg and the matching chipboard stickers. Not sure if the little bunny should be with a fall release, but hey -it's cute!! I used some brown gingham ribbon and some rhinestones from my Zva Wheel (man, I love these!).

This next card is for this week's Featured Stamper challenge, casing Miss Boo! Jen is such a sweetheart and a fabulous stamper. I chose this card immediately. It is so striking and beautiful!

I used Inkadinkado's new christmas set, Pattern Play Holiday. I embossed the swirl image onto some Raspberry Tart PP with white EP.

I then added some clear Kaiser Rhinestones to the circle parts (totally got that idea from Silke!). The Christmas tree is adorned with Zva Creative, Wheel crystal rounds (yep, AGAIN!!)!! The ribbon is PTI's white twill.

Lastly I have a card for this week's Farm Fresh Friday sketch. Again, designed by Mercy! Woot! I used my current FAV Miss Anya image, Rain from the Rain, Snow, Shine set. cut her out and colored her with Copic markers. I used the Autumn pattern paper from PTI and some primas with Zva Creative felt flowers. The prima flowers are painted with Gold Shimmerz for that extra shine.

So as I am making this card, I realize it's VERY similiar to this Miss Anya card I made over a month ago. Seriously by accident, but just goes to show you, I really like this sketch and image!! LOL!

Oh there is some Hope Stamps Eternal store news!! Rach has the new The Greeting Farm stamps and new Bella Blvd pattern paper in!! Also, ALL the Martha Stewart and Inkadinkado items are on 40% off clearance -until it's ALL GONE!!
