NEW Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge Nov. 17-30

Hello, friends:}

**Please click HERE for my Play Date Cafe  post!! 

Today we start another photo inspired challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog. 

I kind of went overboard {again} this week--I couldn't help it! I just love using my Paper Smooches stamps! For this first card I used the flowers as my inspiration. I used my Restoration Crate Paper along with three stamp sets from Paper Smooches [Perky Plants, Friendly Flowers, and Swanky Snowdudes]. I tied on some seam binding and used some Thicker alphas. LOOOOOOOOOOVE how this turned out! Love the bright colors! 
For my second card...I used the colors {green, blue, silver/gray} as my inspiration. **NOTE:  After finishing my card, I noticed that the green is more of a yellow/green. OY! I wanted to make a masculine card with these colors--so I pulled some Authentique [Splendid] and Pink Paislee [News] papers and paired them with three stamp sets from Paper Smooches [Hot Concoctions, Boob Tubes, Alphadot]. I just love using my Alphadot stamp set! I used it for the sentiment--perfect! I LOOOOOOOOOVE how this turned out!! 
I have to explain the 3---I'm giving this card to my dad for Father's Day next year. There are three kids in our family. :}

That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT members' blogs and leave them some love

And don't forget to stop by the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for more details. This challenge ends Nov. 30th. I cannot wait to see what you make!!!

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

Your cards are so fun, Sav!! The first card is really fun and colourful. I adore the paper pieced flower in the watering can. Your second card is awesome for Father's day. Great cards!!

Thank you for explaining the 3, Sav -- I've been wondering since I saw it on the SPARKS blog! :) Both of these cards are so much fun -- bright and cheery interpretations of the inspiration.

Seriously LOVE both of these. I love the first one for its cuteness and fun colors and patterns. The dad card is just ROCK awesome! Any dad would love it.

That silly flower is so funny!!! Love the colors there! I saw the second card on the PS blog, but I do like the first one better myself, but guess that's only personal taste. They are both fun!! Hope you have a lovely Sunday!
Hugs, Wendy
