CR84FN25 - Celebrate

The  CR84FN25 challenge this week has some pretty colors that remind me of summer.

I immediately thought of sailboats and summertime. I didn't have anything with sailboats, instead I went with summertime and 4th of July celebration. 
The stamps are all Hero Arts.

I was so inspired by the colors I created a second card as a baby card:

All the stamps on this card are  new from Memory Box. There are some new adorable stamps for baby cards. The paper is from Memory Box as well.

Here are the inspiration colors from CR84FN:



For all the details on the challenge this week go to the CR84FN blog.

For more inspiration the fabulous CR84FN Design Team:

A wonderful Easter Blessing to you and your family!

  5. Both gorgeous cards Sue and I especially love the baby card. That tiny bird is so cute and although really teeny is a little eye catcher.
