Ready? Set. Go!

Today is the third Wednesday of the month and that means a Ready, Set, Go Challenge Card! The 3 Musketeers (Jeanette, Kelly and I) are back with another challenge this month--our 14th month!  We are now well into year #2!

I provided the challenge for June:  Ask your spouse the following questions and record the answers for your card.  1--What is their favorite color?  Name a number between 1-5?  3--Name a holiday or occasion--does not need to be their favorite.  Then--make a card for that holiday or occasion, with their favorite color as a prominent focal point and use the number they stated somehow in the card.   The key was to also not tell them why you are asking the questions until the answers are given!   Ready? Set. Go!

So--I checked this out with Rebecca and I did get pretty lucky.  Her favorite color is Green; for the holiday she told me May Day and for the number--it was 4.   I went with a Stampin' Up stamp set that I have not inked up--but have made some fun cards at class and for hostess club.  I thought it was a great card to give for May Day too!  There are 4 green gems on the corner and also four layers on the base.  We received some sweet flowers on May Day from our friend Jill and true to the holiday traditions--she left them in the early morning without a note as to who they came from...………………  I think the crumb cake heart designer series paper is perfect for this fun holiday.  I also spritzed some Wink of Sarah over the image for shimmer! 

Here is the inside of my card:

Please be sure to check out the other Ready, Set, Go cards.  Here is a link to Jeanette's and Kelly's blog.  I am sure you will not be disappointed and will see a couple of great cards! I hope Kelly and Jeanette like my card and that you might too!  Jeanette am up for the next theme, so be sure to check back to see what we are up to on the 3rd Wednesday in July!

Unidentified Image Swap

This is the card for the 38th round of the Unidentified Image swap on SCS.  It is a group of ladies who are a part of a bi-monthly swap where we all use the same image, sent to us by the hostess.  The unidentified part is that we are to not discuss the image at all until the day they are to be posted--today!   The image for this round was provided by Jeanette.  She will swap the cards and include the next image that Janet,  our next hostess in their return envie.  And then we get to do it all again--for round #39--in August! 

I think this is such a sweet Unity image--love this!  I did not add an image so the card can be used for any occasion.

Here is the inside of my card:

If you check some of the other blogs listed on my sidebars, you may find some other swappers who have posted their creations today or in the next few days.  I hope Jeanette and everyone in the swap likes my card--and that you do too!

June is Rose Month

If you are looking for my DT card from The Project Bin-please scroll down!

It is the 15th of the month and that means I am showing you a new Dueling Darlings card.  For our June Challenge, Carol and Shelly are the hostesses! They decided on the theme-June is Rose Month!   Shelly is the one of the Dazzlers and Carol is a Diva, the team I am on, and was are all Dueling Darlings!

Carol sent each of the Divas wonderful rose images--and we had to chose!.  I picked this one by Gina K Designs. Carol included some great patterned papers--all shades of black--her signature color! I pickled the black sparkle one--as that too is a favorite of Carol--the glitter queen!!!!  She also included some matching embellishments! This sure was a fun card to make!  And, yes it does look like the vase is a bit crooked--I guess I need to line up the die a bit better next time!  

Carol also gave us a list of the colors of roses and the significance of each one.  She asked us to tell our most favorite color of rose and to color our image that color.  My favorite color of rose is Yellow--which means Joy-Happiness-Caring-True Friendship!  That is what all of my stamping friends mean as they bring me joy and happiness!  They are all very caring and I have made some wonderful friendships!  And--I count Carol in that description too...………………...

Here is the inside of my card, with another of piece of the sweet patterned paper:

I hope all of the Darlings enjoy my card this month. Please be sure to stop in to see what all of the Divas as well the Dazzlers have created this month.  Terry S and Terry A are up for the July theme, so be sure to check back!

There are a few members who do not have blogs:  Suzy and Terry S who both are on the Diva team, and Terry A, Paola and Debby who are Dazzlers.  You will be able to check out their creations in their SCS gallery, if you click on the link for their name.  All of the others should be found on my left sidebar.  I am sure you will enjoy all of the wonderful creations this month!
