Hello and Happy Friday! I hope that everyone is staying warm if the bitter cold has hit your area. It has certainly arrived here in New England!
For today's post, I have two cards for you. This week's Blogger's Challenge is "Same, but different". We could use different layouts or the same stamps, or different colors, or well...you get the idea. I went with the same layout for both of my cards and used different colors and stamps. My first card uses Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration. Her colors this week are Ruby Red, Pretty in Pink, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White. I really liked the card that I created with her colors last week, so I thought that I'd try again this week. I used Crazy for Cupcakes and the set Short and Sweet for the sentiment. I used my Scor-Pal for the quilted Pretty in Pink layer. The scalloped rectangle was made with my Nesties, and I have quite a bit of Star Dust Stickles on the icing of the cupcakes for a lot of sparkle. I included some Pumpkin Pie grosgrain and a tiny piece of May Arts striped ribbon. This card will be perfect for one of the teachers at work that just celebrated her 40th birthday.
My second card is for one of my best friends. She and her husband just welcomed their second son to their family, so this card is to welcome Baby Harrison into the world! The color theme for this card is Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue, and Certainly Celery. I kept all of the elements the same as the first card, except for different stamps (Nursery Necessities) for the main image, different colors, and I used the ticket punch in the corners with a few pearl accents.
I'm anxious to see what the other ladies have come up with. You can view their wonderful creations here. Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles! :D
