Jacksonbelle Tuesday: CASE'ing Broni!

Morning peeps! How's everyones week going? Well it's almost hump day for me so I'm happy! This week is FLYING by! I've been so busy at work and got school and stamping after work that I just blink and the day is gone, I love that! Now if only the next 3'ish months go this fast, I'll be set:)

For today's Jacksonbelle Challenge we are CASE'ing the talented Broni Holcombe! Her gallery is beyond amazing and it was so fun picking a card to case! I chose THIS one, I love all the little added details!
Here's my card:
Is that little owl not the cutest thing EVAH? He's from Night Owl by October Afternoon! Just love the owls in this set, they all have those big wide eyes that make you just wanna give em a hug! Heehe:) I'm sending this to DH even though it has buttons and a flower on it {he'll probably hide it from the boys, but I know he'll love it, lol!}

I used paper from Hawaiian Papaya, Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, and Kiwi Kiss cardstock! I wanted to make this card work for the Color Challenge over at Splitcoast! The buttons are all by Basic Grey. The green flower is by Prima, and I also painted some Pumpkin Shimmerz on Olly's belly:)

If you'd like to play with us, use the key word JBE023 when you upload to Splitcoast! Check out what the rest of the talented designers came up with!

Check out the JBelle Blog for some HUUUGE Blog Candy! You don't want to miss it! All you have to do is comment on THIS post for your shot at this huge wad of fabulousness!

I made this card last night right before I went to bed. I had seen this weeks CPS Sketch and have been thinking about it all day. Well after I got done brushing my teeth and getting ready to climb in bed, this idea flew into my brain and I had to get it out before I forgot it! I have seen many cards using this set by SU! and these colors and just HAD to do it:)

The colors are from last weeks color challenge, Baja Breeze, Really Rust, and Chocolate Chip! Yep, I'm loooving these colors! The stamp set is called Season of Friendship by SU! and the paper is from Autumn Vines (in the SU! Holiday Mini)
I love it when these ideas that pop into your head work out so nicely:) I love this card!
Everyone have a fabulous day!

Hey Amber! I was wondering what you'd been up to, lol! Super cute cards today, glad you enjoyed the color challenge...I still haven't done mine for it yet :o and I'm the one who suggested it!! But I'm hoping my latest SU order will be waiting for me at the post office today....here's hoping! When are we going to get together and stamp again? Or watch some vintage movies? I'm saving Gremlins for you!
