Two Cards and Winners

Hello Fellow Bloggers,

I tried to e-mail and/or visit all 46 bloggers that stopped by during the All About the Guys Blog Hop that was put on by Erica at My Cricut Craft Room.  I love reading all of the lovely comments and words of encouragement.  During the hop we were on a long motorcycle trip to Island Park, ID.  Along the way, we did stop and watch my son play rugby in Pocatello, ID.  Believe me when I tell you that I would have rather been at home playing on the computer and crafting than riding through he poring rain in 48 degrees. 

Here's part of the ISU team.  The one playing with his shorts and chewing on his mouth guard belongs to me.  I haven't learned the rest of their names yet, but considering they will be out at the house this weekend I'd better learn them quick. 

So on to some winners.  I am giving two A Muse Studio ink pads away.  Fern and Blackberry.  The first winner to respond will have their choice of color.  If your name is listed below, please e-mail me your your address and ink color preference.  Please list Blog Hop Winner in the subject line.  My e-mail is tk_themom_smith at msn dot com.

Winner #1 is..................

Winner #2 is.................

So on to a few cards I've been working on.  The first one is for a card swap over at Cricut.com.  We had to build monochromatic cards for the month of September. 

I really seem to like working with turquoise and aqua when it comes to these types of cards.  I cut a string of beads apart and glued it to the middle of the flowers. The Thank you is cut from the Phases cartridge at a 3. 

The second card was a real quick card for me.  I was suppose to be cleaning off the kitchen counter and my notebook with current challenges was sitting open and I just couldn't resist.  So the two challenges I've combined are Just Us Girls Color Challenge #102 (using Pumpkin, Aqua and Kiwi), and Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #135.

  I was experimenting with coloring the doily pumpkin or kiwi.

The kiwi just didn't do it for me so I went with the pumpkin. 

The hello friend was an experiment from the previous card.  I don't even remember what cartridge I pulled it from.  The patterned paper was from a DCVW kitchen stack and the pumpkin card base is A Muse Studio card stock.  I love that their card stock is colored on one side and white on the back.  It's perfect for card making. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to have some more projects soon.
