It just so happens 2 of my favorite places, The Paper Variety and My Sketch World  are celebrating this month!  The Paper Variety has turned 1 and is having a Blogaversary Party this week!  My Sketch World is having a month long celebration in the form of a fun ABC Crop!  I managed a card that fits nicely for each of their challenges!  Loves me a "two-fer!"  :) 

TPV challenge is to use your favorite manufacturer.  My Mind's Eye has been a favorite as of late.  I love their 6x6 paper pads-the smaller scale patterns work nicely for card making.  All of the paper and the sentiment label is "Lime Twist."  The sentiment, of course, is SRM!

many thanks 

The F Challenge over at MSW is to use four things on a card; a flower, a font, fringe and fall colors.
I didn't quite know how I was going to fit a flower on this card, so I pulled out my stamps (taking Kelly's advice to spend more time with them) for the second time this week and stamped some tiny flowers on the white cloud.  Here is a close-up:

I used this sketch from PageMaps:

Thanks for stopping by today!  Happy Saturday, friends!
