Let's Celebrate

Happy Thursday!  Have you all seen Taheerah's Cure for the Monday Blues challenge?  This is my first time playing along.  I loved the colors in the graphic for this week. I used the sketch from My Favorite Things.

I am sure you can tell exactly how I was inspired.  :)

My second card was created using the masking technique Jennifer McGuire shared on Day 3 of Online Card Class: Clean & Simple 3.  I had to use distress inks on the background to cover up some fingerprints.  OOPS!!  Not sure I love the blue background but I am sharing anyway. 

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!  I will be back a little later with another post, stay tuned!!!

  1. Oh my goodness Kristie...I've missed several beauties while I was away (had a great visit with our daughter). Gorgeous creations, beautifully crafted! I do love them all...but the bicycle card has just rocketed to the #1 spot on my Favorite Kristei Cards list!!!

  2. This is beautiful! The colors totally caught my eye. Gorgeous work!

  3. How fun are these!!! Love these Kristie :)

  4. Great cards as usual, Kristie! Love them and the colors are just awesome.

  5. Two absolutely stunning cards. I love the inked background on the second one Kristie!

  6. That inked doily is really something, Kristie.

  7. I LOVE that doily card - the blue background is great! Isn't it funny that there is always somebody who really like a card that one personally is not so happy with? I always show all my cards (for that reason) unless its really abysmal...

  8. Oh my - talk about a pop!! This card is perfect Kristie!! I have to say I was giddy as soon as your name popped up in the list of entries - I love your work and this stunner is no exception! I do hope you'll play again as visiting here to see this certainly cured my blues! Thanks so much for playing to find a Cure For The Monday Blues!

  9. These are both just fantastic.

  10. Your first card is such a PERFECT interpretation of that inspiration photo! And I'm am in awe at the beauty of the!
