For a Couple of Challenges


     This first card is using Unity stamps.  I always like Black and White cards, as I find them so striking.

I would like to enter this one for the Crafting by Design Challenge, which is Black and White.


     My next card is a summertime card I created in honor of Shark Week.  LOL!  I used a great set from Newton's Nook, called Shark Bites.  Cloud stamps are from Art Impressions.  I did white embossing and watercolors and the sun was made by using a negative of a die cut as a stencil.  There was sparkle added with a Stardust pen.

This I would like to enter at Little Red Wagon #349..... It's Summertime!

     That is it for now.  I am going to attempt to organize this stamp room a bit, today.  (cough cough)  Have a wonderful beginning to your weekend!

I agree completely black and white cards are striking and your card here today is no exception. It is lovely. Darling shark week card also. How is that craft room organizing coming? Probably as good as my attic organizing. LOL

Mary Anne,
Love the black and white, I tried to paint a tree with those curly branches lol. That shark is so cute as long as it stays on paper.

Mary Anne, your black & white card is very elegant and I just love the tree image! And the card for shark week...OMGosh, made me smile as we watched a bunch of shows that week but your shark looks pretty happy & tame! Love them both! Hope all is well with you & the family. I'm trying to get back into commenting again now that I am not on Merry Monday anymore and I have gone off of Facebook. Lot's of free time! Have a great weekend! :)
