My Favorite Guest Designer & a RAK

My Favorite Things had a new release party this Weds. I missed all but the last 45 mins because it was a busy evening for me, but it was fun! Here are the cards I made to enter the contests they have.
First challenge is to make a birthday card since we are celebrating MFT and Kim's birthdays this week. I used the template I made for the boot card I shared on Weds (I can upload a pattern as soon as I have time and can figure out the best way to). I used Ride 'em Cowgirl & Let's Go For a Walk (Celebrate in Style).

Second challenge is to make a card incorporating stars - well that was easy, especially since it's the 4th of July today! Happy 4th to everyone celebrating! For this, I went with a simple layout (sortof A*Muse style which is not really my style although I do own a 'few' of their stamps which I haven't used in over a year). I paper-pieced some star adhesive DCWV mat stack for the house roof & car.
Last is to make a card & pierce your paper. I used Annie LaPoint's Chamomile for this card. Ornare piercing template in corner of card and the flowers I used? From Charmaine - see below. I also CB'd my pretty in Pink layer on the left and finished it off with rubbing some metallic rub-on paste but went a tad overboard with it. Oh well.

I got a great big 'ol goodie belated birthday package from Charmaine - Oodabug Alley and here is my birthday card - isn't this Changito adorable? Love it! Some of the goodies included the bridal flowers (white, ivory, pink & blue used in the card above). That was so sweet of you Charmaine - Thank You from the bottom of my heart. I'm so glad we're friends & Prettie Girls too.

Super duper cute--all of them. I especially love your boot cards. Hey, here's just a tip: you can download a FREE pdf converter, so if you have a template, just scan it in, convert to a pdf and upload to your blog!

Hope you are able to get it on here and share with everyone--it's super cute!
