Adding More Challenge Cards.....

I've been on a stamping mission during this virtual cardmaking party over at the Stars and Stamps blog! I've completed all but challenge #2 so far.........and I'm totally stumped as to creating a card with a fishbowl! LOL This card is for Kate's challenge #11 to create a pinwheel. She posted a tutorial on her blog showing how to make this, and it's super easy! Probably the quickest card I've made so far in these challenges.
This one had me puzzled for a while. Sandy's challenge #10 challenged us to use the same stamp and create 2 different cards with 2 different seasons. I think I finally figured it out by making a summer scene and a winter scene with the same tree. That's liquid applique on the winter tree and it really does look like snow doesn't it?
This card was done for challenge#9 in which Patricia challenged us to create a card using a 1,2,3 recipe. 1 designer paper, 2 stamps, and a sentiment with 3 or more words. Check, check, and check!
And this is for Sarah's #12 challenge to create something "fruity or foodie." I used this free colored digi image from Beccy's Place and used a piece of DP that has a tiny border of cherries.
I'm taking a break now to go fix us some dinner. I think I'm just about burned out from making cards for this weekend, but I'll check back a little bit later and see if I can finish them up! I hate to throw the towel in after coming so far! KWIM?
See ya soon!

Your trees worked GREAT Carol! Super!

Check out the other samples on the fishie challenge - great ideas to make a bowl when you dont have one!

Carol, you did a wonderful job on each and every one of your challenges. I can't even pick a favorite. I wish I had found time to take part in these challenges, but time is not on my side this weekend or upcoming week. Assembling a gazebo, breakfast buffets, dinners, house guests, and birthday parties. Making cards and doing challenges is much easier and I think, more fun in some cases. I did manage to get one card done this morning. In any case, my hat is off to you and all of your creations. Nicely done. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

You really are doing great with these challenges. I would really have to put my thinking cap on for some of these, but I guess that is what makes it a challenge. Spectacular job!
