Hi everyone!  Sorry I haven't updated in the past couple of days.  It's been crazy getting back into the swing of things!  It's hard when you've been off for 2 weeks to get back on schedule!

Today's card is a combo challenge card... it is yesterday's color challenge and today's sketch challenge.  Both challenges can be found on Splitcoast Stampers!  

I am going to need some masculine birthday cards soon, so I thought this color combo was the perfect opportunity to get one finished!

I paper pieced the balloons with designer paper to make them more interesting!

Card Details:
Paper: Whisper White, Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Jersey Shore DP
Ink: Stazon Jet Black & Garden Green
Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes
Accessories: Gold Brads (unknown vendor)

*all items Stampin Up unless otherwise noted!*

This next card is one I made last Sunday evening for Valentines Day.  I had seen some similar cards and I wanted to make one of my own!
valentine bundle, season of friendship, stampin up, dancerriley, cards, valentine, stamping, splitcoast stampersI really thought I would use this stamp set more, so my challenge to myself lately has been to use sets that I bought and haven't used as much as I thought I would!

Everything is Stampin' Up except for the hearts... those were in a clear Studio G set from A.C. Moore.

Card Details:
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Whisper White
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Certainly Celery, Rose Red, Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Season of Friendship, Fancy Flexible Phrases, $1 clear stamp
Accessories: Nestabilities (spellbinders), Adhesive Pearls (unknown vendor), Rose Red Ribbon

*all supplies Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted!*

I hope you have a great Wednesday!
