October Card Chain Challenge and Paperplay DT Announcement

I took part in Deborah's Card Chain Challenge for the first time in October.  I had to make a card with a specific colour palette or sketch with thanks/gratitude as the theme.  The recipient of my card was the lovely Dawn in NZ.  She sent me a note yesterday to say that my package had arrived to her home safe and sound.  That postie was super speedy given that I only posted the package on November 2nd. 

Here was the card which I made to send her.

Supplies - Kraft card blank, Hero Arts Flower Wallpaper, Hero Arts Butterflies, Sentiment Hero Arts CL139
and pop dots

I also submitted another entry for the Hero Arts "unexpected" colours challenge this week.

Supplies - PP by Papermania, Ribbon by Papermania, Share the Joy Cling set by Hero Arts,
Sentiment from Hero Arts Holiday Sayings Set, Star stamp by Forever Friends, Fimo buttons made by me!
and white embroidery floss.

I don't know where I was yesterday! but I managed to miss the Paperplay Challenges DT Announcement.  I made the Design Team....woohoo.... will be doing the happy dance all day.  I am so thrilled.  Check out the blog / challenges here.

Hope you have a great week.  Thanks for stopping by!.
