Lots of Challenge Cards

So while I was watching the St. Louis Cardinals bring home the World Series trophy, I was busy creating cards for various challenges. With a busy weekend and start to this week I haven't had a chance to post them yet, so I figured I would lump them all in one post. I found a couple new simple card designs that I love, I hope to inspire you with these creations!

With Halloween behind us and Thanksgiving quickly approaching, that means Christmas will be here in no time so it's time to get a jump start on all those cards/projects. I pulled out this super cute embossing folder to be focus of my car with a few added embellishments!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Colour Create- Burgandy/Gold/Green/Cream + optional dimension
Crimbo Crakers- Anything Goes as long as Christmas themed
Meljen's Designs- Christmas

I just love all the beautiful colors on the trees right now, but not sure I am ready for cooler temperatures.
I have had this wonderful stamp set for quite some time and never inked it up that I can remember, well there was no better time than present to change that! 

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
C.R.A.F.T.- Colour Combo
I have had a lot of fun this year creating Halloween projects, which I do not normally do.  This is another great image from The Stamping Boutique called "Witches Laundry Line"- I have added some clouds to image with CTMH inks and scalloped circle. I LOVE that spider web embossing folder, which I have inked with CTMH white daisy ink before I embossed my paper.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Delightful Challenges- Black/Orange/Green/Purple
DYSU- inspiration photo/Halloween
Paper Play-Hallowen/Witches
Rainbow Lady's-Spooks/Witches

Is this not the funniest image? It's called "puff " and is from Stamping Dragon Designs, I added a computer generated sentiment to my Kraft card base (sorry printer pulled through a little crooked).  I grabbed my "tiny bubbles" embossing folder and inked everything with CTMH Ocean ink.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
CCEE-Make a funny get well card

I did the same thing as above for this card, just changed the sentiment. I love how versatile this
image can be!!!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Art Impressions- Card for a Yong Boy
Aud Sentiments- Make Us Laugh

I usually love lots of layers, but I am quickly finding that I love the CAS style too! I started with a Kraft card base, inking the edges with CTMH white daisy ink, and dded my snowflakes.  A little bling and this simple sentiment complete this CAS beauty!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Clean & Simple- sketch #163
Shelley's Images- Bingo (Kraft/Free/Bling)
Winter Wonderland- CAS (must be Christmas)
Crafty Ann's- CAS

What a booty, they are all wonderful.

Oh my gosh. I won some free Stamping Boutique images a ways back and the Witches Laundry Line was on my list, but somehow I ended up choosing something else instead. Could kick myself.

Wonderful job, love the spidery DP and the green ribbon. The spooky purple clouds are PERFECTION. BTW, I WANT that Dear Santa emboss folder love how you used it.

Thanks for joining the Little Miss Muffet - Clouds Challenge.
