A Thank You card with a Southwestern Flair! 10

Mona Pendleton | Monday, August 24, 2009 @ 10:20 AM | , , , ,

Hello Girls! Hopefully, all of you had a fun-filled weekend! Thanks for taking the time to stop by Cupcake's Creations & leavin' me some love :) I have been busy like a lil' baker with some goodies in the oven! I am on the road, heading out of town for a few days so I had to finish my projects for the Use-It! challenge #25 starting on Friday, August 28th, featuring lil' ole Me as the designer : ) & for Papertrey Ink's Monthly Blog Hop on Tuesday, August 25th. I hope to hear from all of you on both of these dates! :) Maybe you will be inspired to join along for the hop &/or challenge! :)

This week's chosen colors for Color Throwdown #56, CTD56, have Southwest Flair written all over them! I love these earthtone colors. (I do not have SU Bermuda Bay, so I substituted SU Taken with Teal). What do you think of the embossed stars? I looove that NEW embossing folder! That was one of the new release CB embossing folders that I won last week from the team at The Cuttlebug Spot. The Sketch layout is for Beate's, Weekend Sketch Challenge #94, WSC94.

Every week, these sites have NEW challenges for us papercrafters to participate in & the DT's have MARVELOUS examples to either get you jump started or for mere eye candy! Thanks for visiting & I hope to hear from you tomorrow & maybe some / or all of you will give these challenges a try! :) Be Sweet!
