Challenge Cards

Good Morning!
We have received a large dump of snow this weekend and that means I don't go out! LOL!
It also means that I can stay home and STAMP!
Yesterday I found Julee had posted a cool Verve Release Sketch Challenge on the Verve blog and I REALLY wanted to play along! So I used the same basic supplies to create these next two cards.
Cool Caribbean, Pumpkin Pie, WW and MME Bloom & Grow DP
Floral Whimsy Stamp Set.

This card was made using the Weekend Sketch Challenge 71 that I found on Beate's Blog. It was also made for the Inspiration Challenge 170 on SCS. I chose the second picture that was posted.
Earlier this week I'd received the newest H & M Stamps and really wanted to play with this set called Eggstra Special that was designed by Debbie Corbari.
Stamps: Eggstra Special; Card Stock: White, Saffron, Choc chip, Pumpkin pie and Summer Picnic dp; Inks: Memento Rich Cocoa, Celery; Accessories: Copics, Wavy Border punch, Circle punches, Choc satin ribbon, Designer label punch, dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!
