Doily Love

I have a couple of challenge cards to share with you tonite.  The weather in Kentucky is so nasty that it's a joy to stay inside and craft.  The barnyards are so muddy and you have to wear layer after layer of clothes so you can stay warm!  Can't wait for Spring!

Tonite my cards both feature doilies.  I'm so addicted to using doilies on my cards and LO's!  They are just so dainty and added a frilly touch.  First up is a card I did for this week's Twisted Sketches card challenge - the twist is to use bling.  I also used the Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday picture as inspiration:

And here is my card:


I wanted to make a Valentine, but use nontraditional colors.  So I added touches of yellow and blue.  I also added this card to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge 16, make a heart themed card using ribbon and Get Sketchy Card Challenge 71.

Next up is a little card I made for this week's The Play Date Cafe Challenge #66.


Here's my card:


I love this little card.  I used all neutral colors and splashed some lilac ribbon and stamped my sentiment in lilac.  I also inked the edges of my paper with lilac.  I usually don't do neutral with a splash of color, but really enjoyed the technique!  Will have to use it again!


And who would like to win a free kit?  Just visit Creative Charms to see this week's giveaway - the January Kit of the Month

Plus I have a new blog post at Scrapbooking Supplies R Us showing you how to make this using The Sampler January Kit - A Bright New Year:


So much fun using ATC trays for altered projects!  And guess what's in the mail and making its way to my house:


Can't wait to get my Project Life 2011 by Becky Higgins!  OK that's enough information and cards for one nite!  Enjoy!
