Balloons and Clouds; Heart Wreath and Stripes...Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies October Challenge


To my Canadian friends: HAPPY THANKSGIVING!  Hope your weekend is filled with delicious food and the companionship of family and friends!

Welcome to October's Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies Challenge!

Two cards featuring dies today. The first: a duo of Concord and 9th Happy Balloons, floating through a stenciled fluffy clouds blue sky background.  I've left the card opened ended with the addition of the 'happy' die cut...happy birthday, happy engagement, happy...everything!  These balloon are seriously too much fun with their doodly patterns...

Second, is my card inspired by Sovushka Slavia Challenge #13

where we're invited to case the lovely card designed by incredibly talented, Erum Tasneem. My take is nowhere near as breath-taken-away beautiful as hers, but I so enjoyed playing with my Neat and Tangled heart wreath, as is.

 NOTE:  Honoured and thrilled to be selected as one of the Top Three for Sovushka Slavia Challenge #13!  THANK YOU so much!

That's a wrap from me.

Please visit my teammates for some truly amazing die cut inspiration, then play along with us! Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.
See you in the gallery!

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

Great stenciled clouds, too. I really like the diagonal stripes on the second card. Helps show off that pretty wreath. Hope the snow stops soon! We are supposed to get that white stuff today! Hugs!!
