CTMH Seaside & Nursery Charms stamp + American Crafts etc.

ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM, that's what life is all about these days.

I had so much fun making this while I still had the stuff out from when I made the card in my 9/26 post.  I used CTMH Seaside paper & Nursery Charms stamp set + American Crafts Happy Birthday brads (I think the Washi tape is AC also) and other embellishments.  Embellishments - any and all - that's my guilty pleasure so I'm entering this in the Heart 2 Heart challenge "Guilty Pleasures" for this week.

Mojo Monday 365 and Color Dare 113

Well my ride on mower wouldn't start and I was really frustrated so decided to make a card instead of be too mad.  I made this for Mojo Monday 365 and Color Dare #113.  I'm sure I'll be using this great sketch a lot more.  

I used Close to My Heart Confetti Wishes and Seaside paper packs and You're Own Kind of Wonderful stamp set.  Note that I sort of followed the "Gallon, Quart, Ounce" rule of thumb when using the colors.  At first I thought I didn't like the combo but I figured it's a "Dare" right so it shouldn't necessarily be easy - lol.  

I tried my mower after I finished the card and it started - yay (I think)!!  I got a lot done but also really enjoyed my little break.
