Goofy Old Eggplant Hunters

Good Sunday Morning...
I had a fantastic day at the Young Author's Conference yesterday. It's such a great day for the kids that attend. Tiring though - for us adults. I'm hoping to get some down time stamping done today. The following cards I created Friday evening....

This first stamp set is another Flourishes set that I haven't used enough of. I absolutely love these presents!!! This card covers a number of challenges...
Free 4 All - (the new "Limited Supplies" Challenge at Splitcoast) wanted a card which had texture, at least ONE colour that you don't usually use and designer paper if desired. I hardly ever use Elegant Eggplant and haven't used Handsome Hunter in a very long time. I put the pieces through my Big Shot with the Finial Press and then lightly rubbed my White Craft pad over top of the paper.
Friday Sketchers provided the sketch.
Simon Says Challenge wanted Vintage with Flowers and
Stamp Something wanted Patterned paper, buttons and ribbon.


My second card uses the sketch challenge from Splitcoast this week except tipped on it's end......I wanted the En Francais to come out written in the correct direction. The colours are from the Colour Throw Down this week.







Well....I hope you are having a restful Sunday. Blessings!! Joan
