Another productive day!

It was really nice to have a ton of time today to stamp! This morning started off rather chilly and I prefered to just stay inside and stamp! Todays Limited Supplies Challenge was to use Designer Paper(DP). You were to use NO background stamps or images, other than to use them as a border. You could use sentiments and any embellishments.
Honestly, the first card is Amethyst NOT blue....with the way the skies were this morning I couldn't get a good pic. I had wanted to use some purple primas too but couldn't find any to match this.
Stamp sets: Happy Harmony
Cardstock: Almost Amethyst, Barely Banana, WW and Amethyst Prints Paper
Inks: Amethyst
Accessories: Marvy Scallop Square Punches, Primas and Silver Brads
Don't you just love this Cutie Pie Designer Paper?!! It's one of my favourites for sure!
I have a lot of friends with winter birthdays(mine included) so I stamped this one with Happy Birthday!
Stamp Sets: In The Spotlight and Warmest Regards
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Rose Red and Cutie Pie DP
Inks: Rose Red
Accessories: Snowflake Punch and Rich Regal Brads

Then this card was used with some of the leftover pieces! These snowflake punches and 5 petal flower punch are awesome with this stamp set! I'll be using this over and over!!

These next two pics are of some containers I found at Dollarama! Aren't they cool?! I have bought similar ones from IKEA for triple the price! I used up some of the scraps that were left from all the Halloween cards I have made. Found some of these gummy eyeballs to put inside....LOL Gross eh?! Oh well, grade 3 students will LOVE them!

I hope that all my Canadian friends have a wonderful Thanksgiving Weekend! I am looking forward to our big meal on Sunday. Sunday will be a GREAT day....great food, great friends, great racing, great crafting!!! Oh how I wish it was Sunday already!!!

Now to get onto all the blog challenges that I do each weekend!!

Oh and Brian and I will be working on all our garlands too!

Your cards are beautiful as always!! You are a lucky duck that you got so much stamp time! The only time I get alot of time is when I set aside a day and go somewhere to create. I am off to a baby shower, enjoy the rest of your weekend and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!

Those cut-out shapes are really cute...they kind of look wooden...maybe they are - but they are a nice touch.

Those Halloween containers are really cute - kids will love them with that candy, you're right!
