Whimsy and Stars

It's Monday, yet another weekend has flown by! I've got two cute cards to share today, both made with Mabelle RO's Whimsy and Stars images. And both are for the SCS Hope You Can Cling to challenges that are going on during October.

This first one is for the pink animals challenge. It was fun to color up this sweet little teddy (Ballerina Teddy) in pink for a change. I've used Carly's sketch #42 for the layout. I mentioned this last time, but it is worth repeating, Carly is a really talented girl who draws sketches and has her own sketch challenge blog Sketches by Carly! Love to see crafty kids!

Challenges:
Forever Friends - 2W, SIO, must include animal - (1st week)
Now the second one is for the SCS Colors of Hope challenge (use brown, yellow and green). Boy this Basic Gray Origins paper was made for the challenge! The image is again a Whimsy and Stars one called Sunflower Teapot. I've used Jen Shults's Deconstructed Sketch #23 for the layout.

Challenges:
Stamps R Us - 2E - (1st week) Nature`s Gifts (ends 30th Oct)
Heart Song Inspirations - 1E, SIO - Flowers and/or Felt
PanPastel UK Challenge - 2E - Add Two Buttons


So glad you stopped by and peeked at my cards today. Now two bits of exciting news...

Tomorrow is the winter/holiday release for Whimsy and Stars. Mabelle will be filling up the store with cute new digis. They are fabulous, you're going to want each and every one. And even better she is having a sale!



And also, Mabelle has just released 5 sets in rubber, see them here!



Lots of excitement for Mabelle over at Whimsy and Stars!
