Halloween, Celebration and Christmas...A Trio of Cards for A bunch o'Challenges

Hello,

Popping in super quick to share a trio of cards before links close and I've forgotten to post!

So, in a rare instance of brevity from me, let's get going before I start rambling *grin*

First, for CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #242,


is this Halloween number, using SugarPea Designs Halloween icons.  So cute...you should see the Frankenstein! He'll be out later...


 For CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #241 and 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #370~Black, White + One Other Colour


I've played with lovely new products from Uniko:  Background Builders: Seeing Stars and Simply Said Blocks.

NOTE: Thrilled and delighted to be selected as one of four recipients of the Golden Egg award over at 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #370. THANK YOU!

Finally, for Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #307 and Merry Monday Challenge #258~Penguins


I've brought out new-to-me Mama Elephant Arctic Penguins. Adorable!  My ice floes, extending from outside the circle are my take on the solid strip from the sketch; yes...a stretch...


My Uniko card is heading to lovely Darnell's NBUS Challenge #12, as entry #2. Have you seen the gallery...nearly at 180 with still several days to go! WOW WOW WOW!


I'm off!  Hope you have a most wonderful weekend; I'm officiating bike races, hoping not to freeze or get rained upon *grin*

Thank you for dropping by; your visit is both welcomed and deeply appreciated!

Oh, honey child, that red and white starry musical number is a clear winner in my book! Oh, wait, so are the penguins and so are the Halloween circles ... a sumptuous post top to bottom, Carol! Thank you so much for the shoutout and for playing again in my NBUS Challenge #12!! Be safe and don't get rained on!! Hugs, Darnell

Three fabulous cards, Carol! Those penguins are just adorable - what a fabulous take on the sketch! So happy to see you at FMS.

A trio of delight for sure, Ms. Carol! Each one has its own unique flair that is so you! The Halloween card is fun and festive! Great colors. The stars on the diagonal have such a fun graphic look. And the penguins plain and simply make me smile. Have fun officiating. Hope you don't get rained on! Big hugs! :)

Hi Carol, love the penguins and the way you've used them with the open circle stitched die-cut. A perfectly thought-out clean and simple card. Perfect for Merry Monday.

Bobby said...

An inspired (and inspiring) trio of cards, Carol. I love the red, white and black one. Those star stripes are perfect for the challenge. No penguins here so that challenge will have to pass.

Marisa said...

I could have guessed that 2d card would be a winner when I originally saw it...CAS(E) This Sketch thought so too. Congrats on being a Favorit over there. Think both of your other cards are headed for the winner's circle, as well.
