3 challenges done today ...Yippee

First off sorry for the long post!! But I can't believe it, I got another 3 challenges finished today as well! It helps that I did not have to do any running around as Kelsey is still home sick.
My first card is for the WOJ challenge of lavendar and lace. I am not sure that this is lavendar but it is a shade of purple so hope that counts!(LOL) I just don't have much purple paper. I just found this lace the other day so I guess I lucked out! This image is so cute ~ I think it might be my favorite of the spring kit! I had to use a ton of twinkling h2o's to tone down the purple distress inks to try to get it to match my paper.

Paper: Heidi Grace
Inks: distress inks, twinkling h2o's
Accessories: brads ~ Heidi Grace, lace ~ Wal-mart


This next card is for 2 challenges. I got the lovely sketch from Sketch Saturday and the theme over at CCT is food and drink. I know it is a very little ice cream cone but food nonetheless! (LOL)
I finally cut this paper! I will be the first to admit I am not a fan of orange but I really like it with this color blue and this pack from MME is so pretty! It is from the Bloom and Grow range. I also saturated this card with Twinkling H2O's. If you did not see yet the company that makes the Twinkling H2O's is going out of business so you better buy them up!!

Paper: MME
Inks: distress inks, twinkling H2O's
Accessories: Dew Drops ~ SNSS, Flowers ~ Prima, Word Window punch from SU

I got to take these pictures outside today! It is sunny and 50 degrees but after the last few days it feels like 70! Just beautiful out!
Well thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your thoughtful comments! It is always lovely reading them!! Hope you all have a great night!

Also I have to throw this in here. It is a picture of my little ham. She loves sitting up in that window and feeling the heat come in from outside!
