Another Set of Cards to Share!

Hello friends!  Told you that I would be back again shortly!
Here I am!

I hope to spend some time this weekend catching up with the rest of the SCS HYCCT challenges that I have missed and can get in a rhythm to get caught up with it.  I also have some other craft things going on that need my attention as well before time starts running out!

So anyway, here are my next set of three cards...
Sorry about the slightly blurry photo, but I have to say that although this one was very easy in design, I think it's been one of my faves so far!  I have always loved this "Lovely as a Tree" stamp set from Stampin' Up! and it's one of the first sets that I bought.  I've made this one for the SCS HYCCT1311 challenge called "Peace & Quiet".  We were supposed to create a card with no words on the front.  The first thing that comes to my mind is a winter scene just like this.  It's so very quite in the cold winter...I really do love going out in the snow among the sparkling trees and just hear peaceful to me.  Some people like noise around them, but I am one of those people who NEED their "quiet time" to feel relaxed.  I hope it can bring some peace to someone where it's going.

Here are some challenges for this one:
SCS HYCCT1311 - "Peace & Quiet"
The Paper Players (PP167)
Crafty Creations - sparkle and shine

I think this image is so cute!  This image is called Ribbon Bear-Leaning from Bugaboo Stamps.
I printed him out and colored him in with my Copic markers.  I added a small thinking of you sentiment from a Stampin' Up! set from my stash.  This card was made for the SCS HYCCT1312 challenge called "The Colors of October".  We were supposed to use the colors pink, green & yellow (like that of an opal stone) and also add some shimmer somewhere to mimic the opal stone.  It's hard to tell in the photo of course, but I've added some smooch to shimmer up the pink ribbon the bear is leaning on. (It's so very pretty and shimmery in real life!)

Here's some other challenges for this one:
SCS HYCCT1312 - "The Colors of October"
Retro Sketches (rs#85)
Catch the Bug - Think Pink
Crazy 4 Challenges (C4C207) - chevron with pink, grey, yellow & green
Daring Cardmakers - digital (digital image)

And here is my last creation for you today...finally, huh?! LOL!
This one was made for the SCS HYCCT1313 challenge called "Sticking by Your Side".  We are supposed to make a washi tape background for this.  I was happy to give this one a go because I have several rolls of this washi tape and never use it!  I have three different washi tapes for my center background panel and then I used my flower die cut and punch to make the popped out flowers on my design.  I think it turned out really happy and fun and bright!  So glad to use some of that washi tape too!

Here are a few challenges for this one:
SCS HYCCT1313 - "Sticking by Your Side"
Sketch Saturday (SS280)

Whew!  Now that I've shared the cards that I have made early on in the week, it's time to get busy once again and start getting caught up with what I have missed!  Thanks for stopping by and checking out my creations, I'm happy you came by!  I will be back later on hopefully with some creations that will get me caught up so I can spoil you with only ONE creation per day instead of several at once! LOL!

I promise to stop by later this evening and tomorrow to see what you are all up to.  Please be sure to enter my birthday blog candy if you haven't yet!  It ends October 29th, which is quickly approaching us!!
