Tuesday Challenges

Please excuse the wonky look to my blog post today. I'm having some pretty major issues with my computer right now. UGH! I sure wish I weren't so technically challenged. That being said, I do LOVE a good challenge - and I have two GOOD CHALLENGES to share with you today... {PIN}Spirational Challenge and Twisted Tuesday Challenge ... so let's get started.

July 9 - 15

Our image for this challenge is so cute. We are supposed to create cards/projects inspired by this image:

We also have two GREAT sponsors, who provided images for the design team's use as well as PRIZE PACKAGES for a lucky participant.

THANK YOU to our sponsors:


We sure appreciate all that our sponsors do for us!

Here is my card:

It features an adorable Bugaboo image - Ava Fairy Special

Here's the inside of my card:

The other challenge today is Twisted Tuesday Challenge...

Twisted Tuesday Challenge has a sponsor this month, too.

Twisted Tuesday Challenges last for two weeks

How cute Jeanette! Both of your cards are just adorable! Sorry you were having Blogger issues this morning....

Margaret said...

Both your cards are too cute and your blog looks just fine. I can't see any wonkiness in it. I may have to try the {Pin}s challenge since my favorite color is purple!

Love both super cute cards! Adorable images on both cards; love the purple used on first card and YUM! love the ice cream card!

Melina said...

Your blog post looks great. I love the first card, purple, polka dots and plaid! great combo!
Your Twisted Tuesday card is too cute! I love that stamp. (as you know I just ordered it yesterday)
Thanks for the inspiration :)

Darlene said...

Absolutely adorable - both of them!!

The sweet Ava Fairy is huggable in purple! Love the layers and the layout too!

Your Twisted card is totally great! Love the CC Designs image and the embossing is perfect! Love that extra panel of embossing on the inside too.

As for wonkiness - not evident on my side. Maybe it just displays strange on your end?

Both cards are so cute! I love the colors on the first card. The second use of embossing is great.

Sorry for all of your computer trouble. They are a love/hate relationship, huh?!
