Some Sneaky Challenges ;)

Happy Saturday!
I have a few things to share with you today!!! I love Saturdays because we have Our Creative Corner challenge and Lauren's Sketch Challenge. This week is a bonus....there is a sneak peek of a new CC Designs set!
First I'll share my card for the challenge on Our Creative Corner. This month Amy is our hostess and she has so many wonderful things planned! Be sure to check the OCC blog for all the details each week. If you play along, which I hope you will...lol...be sure to share a link to your card and if you upload to SCS you use OCCC in the keywords.
Amy turns the big 40 soon and she wanted to keep things light and fun....she asked us to make a card that will keep her laughing! I thought these Changito monkeys may just do that ;) Paired with this sentiment...I thought it was a perfect card to send off to Amy!
Stamps: Changito, Smarty Pants; Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, WW, American Crafts DP; Inks: Memento Black, SU Markers for the sentiment; Accessories: Copics, Slit Punch, Pirouette Ribbon, Primas, Bazzill Flower, Sparkle Brad, Dimensionals
Don't forget to check out the other OCC girls blogs as well! We have a new member joining us :)

I loved the colours from my first card that I decided to use them for Lauren's sketch too! Don't you think they are so soft and pretty and YUMMY for this cupcake card?! This was the first time I have inked up the new Cupcake Affair set from Verve.
When I won the Verve Bucks for the ATC card last month, this is what I chose...so cute!
If you upload to SCS please use the keyword mytimess04

Stamps: Cupcake Affair; Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, Shimmery White and American Crafts DP; Inks: Memento Black, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, Choc Chip; Accessories: Corner Rounder, Pink Pirouette Ribbon, Jewel, Dimensionals

Now I'm going to share my sneak peek of the new Spooky Spooky Spooky set by CC Designs that will be available from All That Scraps on September 9th. I am terrified of spiders in real life but how can you be scared of these guys? Aren't they cute?! I'm not sure how well you can see but I added some white Doodlebug glitter to their eyes.

Check out the other DT samples on the ATS Blog today!

Thanks for stopping by today!

ACK! another spider card - you can see the glitter too.... I LOVE the cupcake sentiment....the font on that stamp is lovely - doesn't look cheap and funky like some stamp sentiment fonts do.

I love all of your cards. They inspire me. Where do you find your patterned paper. The only place that sells patterned paper her is Michaels & JoAnn fabrics, and they have the same designs month after month. If anyone has any suggestions, please email with them at meggymoo65@yahoo.com

Thanks,

Lisa
