Oh we have a fun blog hop for you tonight and I had a great time making all of these cards on one day last Sunday!
Tonight we are having a special blog hop to thank our recently retired StampTV Challenge Hostess Team members: Carla Suto , Melissa Shultz, Brenda Turner, Linda Payne, Giovana Smith
These 5 designers have provided StampTV with a challenge each week during the months of June, July and August.
Her color challenges were amazing! The challenge of hers that I chose to showcase was her first one - brown, green and ivory. See her original challenge card here! Thank you Carla - loved all of your challenges!

I just love Sketch Challenges and Melissa's were wonderful! Some were tricky and some were not. The one I chose to emulate was her 6th challenge. Here is the link to her sample card.

The creative Brenda came up with several very challenging challenges! These were probably the most difficult for me although I think I did enter most of them. She found such beautiful ideas for the challenge but the one I CASED for this hop is her 13th one and chose to use the colors. Here is the original challenge.
Stamps: Buds and Vases, A year of flowersI loved the Blast from the Past challenges and Linda picked some fantastic ones! The one I chose was her 4th which was to use a bow and old button. See the link here.
Card Stock: Brown from stashSpecialty Paper: Not sure where that came from, it was in my "fall" box.
Stamps: Winter WingsNow when I first heard that we were to make Christmas cards I must admit that I was not thrilled. I was just getting ready to start my summer vacation and did NOT want to think Christmas - BUT - here it is getting close to November and I am soooo glad that I made Christmas cards this summer! I decided to thank Giovana by following her 10th challenge which was to use punches/dies. Check out her fantastic sample!
