September CCC

Hi all!

Deborah's Card Chain Challenge this month was to use one of three challenge options. I chose to use the theme of Friendship. I love this fun challenge! Click on the link above to see what it's all about.

First off, I received two wonderful cards from Paula this month. The one on the right is the one she made for me and the other one was made by her friend Helen. Paula's card has the prettiest paper behind her sweet image! I love the way she colored in the little girl! Her headband matches her leggings! Such lovely colors too!



The cute pirate card is so fun! I feel very special that Paula would send this one also. I love the little waves and boat, and how clever of Helen to add a gem to the pirate's hand! Love it!

It was a pleasure to make a card this month for my hostess sister, Nancy! I wanted to make a special card for her and I finally got my hands on some of the pretty Webster's Pages that I've been seeing in the Flickr pool. I don't usually use patterned paper on my cards, but wanted to give it a try with these beautiful papers.



This page in particular, is just gorgeous! If you click on the photo, you'll be able to see the subtle aqua colored writing above the hydrangea and also a very subtle shadowing of musical notes off the the left. I white embossed the hydrangea and colored in with Copic markers. The three butterflies on the right were punched out from the same Webster's Pages pack. I added some Hero Hues gems and pearls and the sentiment is from the Great Flourishes Messages clear set.

I hope everyone has a great Tuesday! Thanks for stopping by!
