How's that for a pair of acronymns? Makes me think of CSI or NYPD Blue... lol. Anyway, the first card I have to share with you today for the Roses on Paper Challenge which begins today! The challenge is to create a card using Lavendar, Soft Blue and Cream. I especially enjoyed working with these colors and this cute image! This image is from Belles n' Whistles called Sisters which happens to be another favorite of mine from this line!
You definitely can use your BnW stamps for this challenge since that blog is now combined with the Roses on Paper challenge!!
I just have to give this card to my sister, I know that she loves Elisabeth Bell's creations!
I sure hope that you have a chance to participate in this challenge since it does run for 2 weeks! Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has created and post your card HERE.
The next card I have to share with you is for Christmas Stampin' All Year Long! Yes, it really is September everyone and I suggest if you plan to make cards this year and especially if you have not started on them, now is a great time! The challenge this week is for you to do some paper piecing on your card. I don't really do a lot of it but had fun with this one!
I've had this cute little guy from last Christmas and finally got to use him for this year!
For those of you who don't like to color too much I think paper piecing is probably the perfect technique to use. Here it's all colored and even has a pattern/design that you don't need to worry about! It can also make your cards easier to piece together.
We'd love to see what you will create with this techinque so please be sure to post your card HERE.
I know I have not been able to comment on your blogs in the last couple of days but will be getting around to that later today. I am in the middle of trying to clean out and organize my craftroom, it will take time but I have to start somewhere. Thank you so much for any comments you may leave. Have a wonderful day!!

Ever since I found your blog I have just adored your coloring and cards you create. But this sister set card, has to be one of my favorites. I have 2 sisters of my own and that totally reminds me of them. They live in LV and LA. I ordered me one and have not used it yet, maybe I'll try one now. TFS
