OA Challenge!

Hello friends!  Long time, no see!  Long time NO STAMP!  This weekend changed all that.  I've got lots to show you.  Ü
 
Last month was the October Afternoon Warehouse Sale and man O'MAN was it a sale!  I was there 3 times!  While standing in line to get in, I saw my cyber friend, Beth.  We got to talking and decided to do a challenge using our new OA papers.  How fun!
 
So, we are both posting creations today using Cakewalk.  Once I got started, I couldn't stop.  LOL
 
This is for our son's birthday next week.  The star wreath is a Memory Box die.  I love how it goes with the star paper in this line.  I covered a chipboard star with paper and glittered up a few of the stars on the wreath.  Hey, even guys can appreciate glitter ya know.
 

This one started out as a CAS, but as always, I can't help but keep adding until I'm happy.  LOL
The flower is built using PTI flower dies and the leaves are MFT.
 
Lastly, I mixed a little Cakewalk with the red snowflake paper from Holiday Style.  I didn't have any cardstock that would match the green in the plaid, so I sprayed some cream with Sprinklers and Mr Huey white (it matches better in real life) and die cut the tag (PTI).  The image is Whipper Snapper.


This was such a great way to get my mojo going and I can't wait to see what Beth created!  You can find her at Never Too Old to Color.
 
Thank you so much for stopping by!
