It is great when you have long weekend that gives you the chance to play. This card used 3 challenges:

One Layer Flower Card

my second card for the weekend also has inspiration from three challenges:
When I saw the masking challenge and the One Layer Wonder they had to go together and the sketch and photo brought it all together with the colours coming from the photo.

The Flowers were from Stampin Up's "Reason to Smile", with the greeting from "Bring on the Cake". It was a weekend for bringing out the old stamps. The colours in this card are Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso and Tuxedo Black. The flowers were coloured with Blendabilities (another retired product) Blush, Nude and Calypso Coral. The base card is Thick Whisper White.

This one was a lot of fun to make.

A Cuppa Tea Challenge Card

This weekend I was lucky to have some time to make 2 cards. This first one used 3 challenges for Inspiration:

The colours used were Night of Navy, Early Espresso, Watermelon Wonder and Baked Brown Sugar.

Beautiful You card

This weekend I was only able to make one challenge card using the 'Beautiful You' stamp set from the Stampin Up Annual catalogue. I found my inspiration from four different sites:
The colours in the card and ink are Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Grey, Whisper White, Blushing Bride and Staz On Jet Black. I used the Layering Ovals framelits to cut out the greeting. The dress and background have Wink of Stella across them to give a little sparkle.
