The Play Date Cafe Color Challenge - Plum

So excited to do my first PDCC!

Here is the challenge

And here is my take on it.

I must have been sub-consciously inspired by the layout
of the photo, because looking at the images side by side
they are almost identical in layout.


Hope you have enjoyed this little challenge. 
I hope to play along most weeks.

PTI Make it Monday Challenge

Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday challenge #86 was a lot of fun.
Click on the video below for the scoop on what this week's challenge is all about.
 Now here is my take on the challenge. I call it "Airmail." Mainly because that is what is stamped on the front and it just sounds cool. =)

 I do not have a PTI border die YET so I thought I would be creative and 
try using the postage stamp die that coordinates with this stamp set.
I really like how it turned out.
 Really, the whole idea of not forgetting the inside of your card should
be a no brainer, but I do it ALL the time. 
How nice to receive a card and open it up just to find more 
homemade art and thought.
 Thanks PTI for a great challenge!

Fancy Baby Card Unity Challenge - Pennants & Banners

I really didn't know what this card was going to be 
when I first started
Don't you just love when that happens?!
(hint of sarcasm)

I have had this MME paper for a while. (see supply list below)
I have used it once not intending for it to be
a baby theme, but that is what it 
looked like when I was finished.

So I thought I would give the paper another try
and see what happened.
Well baby theme happened again but this time
I was O.K. with that!

First I started with a plain white background. 
I really new I wanted to use my Unity Better with Love Stamp Set.
AND...because I just love to make my own patterned paper
 I knew this stamp set would be perfect. 

After that everything just fell into place!

Supplies Used:
MME Lost & Found2 Blush "Sweet" Bouguet Paper
MME Lost & Found2 Blush "Sweet" Eiffel Paper
