ME4Y Color Combo challenge

Wow, where has the time gone. It's NOVEMBER already. Hard to believe.
This weeks challenge is a favorite of mine called
Color Combo. I'll show you the colors in a moment.
But this is my card from all the colors.
I used a piece of DCWV paper for he back ground which
was a lavender stripe and topped it with a solid piece
of a darker lavender. The striped pattern paper is from my
Citris pack. I cut the fabulous center swirl with my Sizzix die,
and followed that up with strip that I used my AGAIN my 
Martha Stewart floral edge punch. For the flower
I used silk petals of the coral and lavender with a purple
heart. The sentiment "Many Thanks" is from
a sticker pack by Joleen's.

And here is the lustrous combo colors.
Beautiful colors, don't you think?
I hope you enjoyed my card and will
join us for a color combo challenge this week
at ME4Y.

Welcome to Made Especially For You's 
Telephone Blog Hop!

If you've never heard of the "Telephone" game it's a game most often played by kids that simulates how a story can change from person to person, or how a rumor can start. For example, I may tell Susie that at lunch today I had a peanut butter sandwich, an apple, and some milk, and she may go tell Jackie that I had a turkey sandwich, an apple, and some milk. Although only one small detail was changed, over time the entire story can change. The game is played by starting with a story and whispering it from one person to the next in a circle and seeing how the story changed once the last person has told it. 

We decided to play this game as a design team, not with stories, but with cards! Our DT leader Ashley started with a photo of a card, emailed it to someone, who then created a card based off her card, and sent a photo of it to the next person. As a design team, this is the first time we're seeing the progression of the cards! 

                                             Here is the photo of the card I received from
   And here is the card I created inspired by her card:    

My inspiration for this card came from Cyndy's Happy Birthday.
With her Duck which was  very childish, so I decided that it had to be for a
 childs birthday card. So I too went with "Celebrate" for a childres birthday 
I beleive that I am on the right track with a childs birthday. This has been 
allot of fun. I have never played the telephone game, but doing it with a card
theme has really been fun. it's going to be exciting to see what everyone else 
came up with.

What fun is a blog hop without blog candy?! A couple of our design team members have donated some blog candy for those who comment on EVERY stop of the hop!

ME4Y Misting technique challenge.

My very first card using the technique of Misting.
Now I will show you the steps I used to make this.
First thing I did was pick the punch I was going to use
to make my stencil with.
This is one of Martha Stewarts punch around the page
punches. I really love this punch as it has many functions.
This is what it looked like when I got it all 
punched out. Then I placed it on my card and
used my Perfect Pearls Mists. The color is called Forever Violet.
To me it looks more like a rose color. Pretty non the less.
I used my Spellbinders perfect swirls die to embellish the front.
I used used a piece of yard sale ribbon down the side that has some gold
trim. And the final little touch, was a white silk flower. I really do love it.

Happy Scrappin.

ME4Y 3 leaves challenge

This weeks challenge is all about leaves. It seems so appropriate
since fall has raised it head and things are cooling down.
So, this card was a fun one for me. 
I was so excited to have received my new Die for the
back ground of this card from Spellbinders called the Card Maker
If you don't have it, do get it. It is awesome.
Is used a precut doily and my Spellbinders Maple leaf die
for the center. Martha Stewart always seems to find away onto
my cards. LOL This is her fancy butterfly punch. For the scrolls I
used my Cricut cart called Picturesque. And to finish it off my
sentiment also came from a Cricut cart called Beyond Birthdays.

If you haven't already become a follower take this opportunity
to. I am giving away a great blog candy when I reach 100 followers.

Hope you will join us for this weeks LEAF challenge.
Happy Scrappin
