Take Two with Childhood Sundays

Happy Sunday! We have been enjoying perfect 70 degree days here in NE Kentucky, but now it's turning cold and they are saying possible snow for this coming Thursday! But I won't be here to enjoy it! Nope, we are headed west to enjoy spending Thanksgiving with my family back in Washington state.

Today we have another fabulous challenge for you on the Paper Sundaes Challenge blog AND the Sentimental Sundays Challenge blog...and once again I was able to combine them into one creation.

This week's challenge (PSC44) for Paper Sundaes is TAKE TWO! We want you to chose at least TWO of the following and use them for your card: BLUE, EMBOSSING, PUNCHES AND RIBBON. Just choose at least two of those things and show us what you create! I chose to use ribbon and the color blue. This week's challenge is being sponsored by Belles 'n' Whistles. This fabulous company carries exclusive stamps designed by the fabulous Elizabeth Bell! Unfortunately I don't have any BnW stamps yet, so I went with one of the Elizabeth Bell stamps I do have. I paper pieced her to match the paper I was using since I didn't have any copics quite the right color. But I love paper piecing so I love how she turned out!

This week's challenge for Sentimental Sundays is "Childhood". I went with a beautiful sentiment by Paper Makeup Stamps. It's hard to read, but it says "Children hold our hands for a moment, but our hearts for a lifetime." I thought it went perfectly with this image. Make sure you create a card that goes with the theme of "Childhood" (using a sentiment too) and enter your creation for your chance to be chosen in our new Top 3 category!

I hope you will participate in one or both of these fabulous challenges! I look foward to seeing what you create!
