Second Monday Post!!!!!

Back again!! I wanted to knock out a couple challenges today. So I made a card using Princess Emma from Whimsy Stamps. This card will go to someone special since it's using retired red riding hood card stock!!!! I followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers for the layout. I used the heart shaped punch outs instead of circles on the sketch so it works for Stamp with fun's punched shapes challenge. I also snuck in to this week's spoonful of sugar challenge with the hearts!!! I used the colors from stamping for the weekend's chocolate covered strawberries inspired challenge. The paper is from candy lane from SU. I paper pieced Emma's dress, so that fits the challenge at Simon Says. I used 3 prima rose embellies which works for cute daisy may's 3 of a kind challenge. I used extra wide chocolate satin ribbon along with red riding hood taffeta ribbon for Creative Card Crew's ribbon Challenge. Finally it's a thank you card that would work for a teacher, so that covers Cute card Thursday! I have a busy day tomorrow that includes a playdate for the kids and dinner at the beach, so I'll see you all on Wednesday!! Just wanted to leave you with what I found in the yard today................ Yep it's a chipmunk in a suspended bird feeder. It was about 80 degrees today so I'm sure the little guy was hot. So I took down the feeder and opened the cover to let him out. And what does he do????? Turns around to the bottom of the feeder to finish the seeds!!!!!
Check out the next post for this week's Cupcake Craft Challenge DT Card:)
