Punny Pals!

This week's theme at Heart 2 Heart Challenges is Pun Intended.  For my layout, I chose to use the Operation Smile Punny Pals stamp set to create background paper.  I added patterned paper from the Falling for You and Cats and Bats paper packet and White Daisy, Fern, Bamboo (retired) and Black cardstock  I originally thought I wanted to use the cute puns with the critters, but I like the look without them much better.

Not sure to whom design credit should be given.  I found it on Pinterest...the only reference was

Operation Smile Punny Pals D1751
When you purchase this stamp set, Close to my Heart will donate $7 USD of the proceeds to Operation Smile™, a non-profit organization that provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates for children around the world.

For more "Punny" inspiration be sure to visit Pun Intended at Heart 2 Heart Challenges.  And then...create a project and link up!  Just use at least one CTMH product!  You have until December 31st to enter.

Silver and Gold!

Silver and Gold...the theme for this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenges.  Even better, we are teaming up with Close to My Heart Color Dare as they present their challenge, Christmas Extravaganza "December Linky Party".  You can check out their page here.

I used my favorite Christmas stamp set from the Holiday Expressions book, and keeping the design clean and classy, created this card.

I used White Daisy cardstock and Silver and Gold glitter paper.  All the stamping was heat embossed and I added bling with Bitty Sparkles.

Here is another card using the First Noel Stamp Set and the Silver and Gold Paper Packet. I copied this design straight from the catalog. The artwork there is always so inspiring!


You will love the Silver and Gold designs you find at Heart 2 Heart Challenges.  While you are there, we hope you will, in turn, inspire us with your project. For even more fun, check out the inspiration at Color My Heart Color Dare Challenges and also link your project there!

I also submitted this to Addicted to CAS, a fun challenge for Clean and Simple designs.
