Happy Saturday and happy Labor Day weekend!!!
I hope you will have a chance to enjoy this long weekend???
I know a lot of you have been waiting to find out *who* is joining the OCC Team...we have chosen some super sweet and oh sooooo talented ladies...hop on over to the OCC Blog and check them out and give them a big *hello*!!! Welcome again everyone....I'm looking forward getting to know you all better :)!!!
Dana, jumped in with both feet and was so brave to host the September Challenges - thank you GF - that was so sweet of you :)!!!
Dana is challenging us to create a *STARS & STRIPES* card/project. It doesn't have to be a *patriotic* card at all.... as you can see by the samples over on the OCC Blog you can go any way you like!!!
Well - my mojo was a bit slow this week so I was really anticipating the IC196!!! I always get right back on my feet seeing those fab ideas.....With this stars & strips challenge I really wasn't sure which direction I was gonna go, but after seeing this hot pink beauty I knew it had to be a *baby girl* card!!! My oldest loved all that bling when she was little and she still does - LOL!!! This hot pink purse brings back some fun memories :) !!!
Did I mentioned before I l.o.v.e baby cards :) ???......With this card today I tried to go the *elegant* route, since the evening purse has tons of pearls and crystals!!!!
I used the newly released There She Goes - Flourish Mini Set. The sentiment is also from TSG - Tweeterpated.
The colors I used are White, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette and Kraft.
If you are not too busy this week - we would love for you all to play along.....!!!
For more details on the individual cards check out the teams blog directly - Jennifer, Loretta, Jenny, Joycelyn, Dana, Linda, Melissa, Cindy, Wendy and Lori's.
Have fun and a safe week!!!!
