A win, Cafe challenge and the weekend

Im a goofball and somehow missed the post but I WON Bo Bunny Color Challenge Tuesday!! SO EXCITED!!! See the post HERE from the card I did HERE. I love Bo Bunny and I love their challenges! Cant wait to do the next one... if you dont already participate you should check out the Bo Bunny blog and join in!

Here is a card I did for the
Playdate Cafe. I love color challenges, thats the best part to me about paper-crafting is color. I love color. My favorite colors are pink, teal and brown and I love bright cheerful color combos so it was fun to break away from my usual bright color palette and do a nice vintage color challenge.

Heres the color inspiration:

And heres my card, I did 2 versions. One with the twine ribbon and one without. Which do you like best? I couldn't decide so I decided to post both. :)

Paper: Stampin Up, Papertrey Ink and DCWV Vintage Stack
Stamps: Tim Holtz Lost and Found
Other: Nestabilities labels 8, Pearls

And I got this award from a sweet friend Heather... I love reading her comments and look forward to each one and I enjoying visiting her blog and seeing all her beautiful creations! Shes such a doll! :D Thx so much xx

I also did a swap with another dear friend, Beatriz. It was so much fun! I LOVE what she sent me, they are so pretty and made with love. Aren't they the cutest? And my favorite color pink!! I adore Beatriz and her wonderful creations and all her sweet comments and emails. I love visiting her blog, you should swing by and check it out! Thx again sweetie!! I love em! xx

2 of the 6 cards she sent me, aren't they Fab?

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I plan on catching up on some zzz's and sleeping in and then we might take a ride up to the snow... our daughter wants to go so bad I on the other hand don't want to freeze! lol But we need to get out of here and spend some time together just the 3 of us.

I will be back tomorrow with more challenges im working on. Thank you to all you sweet ladies for the sweet comments on my card for FWF! :)

With love xx

I love the first card with the string around it. That just makes the card.

Beatriz made you some wonderful goodies. I will have to go over and check her out.

Both of the cards look stunning but I do prefer it with the twine, It just adds something, dont know what but something LOL. I would be extremely happy to receive in my mail box.

Really pretty work on this card! I like it both ways but I am a sucker for textures and dimension.

Nice to have you back in The Cafe :)
