Two Challenges Are Too Cute

Good morning! So glad you could stop in for a bit. Are you ready for a couple of challenges? If so, then this is the day for you!! The first card is for the Sweet -n Sassy Stamps Birthday Bash over at Paper Craft Planet. I'm hosting one of the challenges, (Challenge #4) which is a Black Tie with a Splash Bash. I challenged papercrafters to make a card with a black and white color scheme, with just a splash of another color. Paulie Polar Bear is a digi that I received from Korin at Sweet -n Sassy Stamps for playing along with the sketch challenge on PCP last week, which was sponsored by SNSS. (See card below) That sentiment just makes me laugh right out loud!! Isn't that wreath on the bear's behind too funny? I LOVE it!!! Please drop by the SNSS group forum on PCP, and play along with our birthday challenges. There's free stuff up for grabs for playing along, so bring on the creativity!!
The second card I have to share was made with the PCP sketch from last week, which was sponsored by Sweet -n Sassy Stamps. Stanley Penguin is another cute little character, and I've had him colored up for months, just waiting to have a happy home on a card. If you're looking for inspiration, then sketch challenges are the way to go. All of the hard work is already done for you, and you can just follow along and have fun.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope I have offered you some inspiration, and please come back again soon! Blessings to you, and happy stampin'!

Love Ya!

I'm just going to say it: You are my idol! You know I'm a big fan of big butted bear cards! LOL! And this one is beyond cute & funny! Love the layout and papers. Drooling as usual over your coloring! The blusing cheeks are TDF!
The penguin card is beyond fabulous! Wow! Great layout, fab papers, layers galore and embellished perfectly ! Love how you even layered ribbon over the punched strip in the middle, and popped the penguin out from the nestie-cut panel. Coloring is off course, crazy good and I think you are on your way to becoming the White Pen spokesmodel!
Like I said, you are my idol!
Love ya,
