Happy MLK Jr. Day!!

Hey Y'all!!!

Happy Monday and also Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!!! I am soooo glad that we have a day to celebrate this wonderful and awesome man!! If you have a minute check out the "I have a dream" speech right here!!

Here are a few cards that I created today.
I created this card for the Play Date Cafe Color Challenge this week, the Wee Memories Ribbon Challenge, and the SCS Clean and Simple Challenge. I had to use my new Hero Arts Stamps....I love that chair stamp!!!! I love how this card came out....I also had a lot of fun creating this card!! Here is the second card that I created today:

It took me awhile to come up with this card. I was going for a bright and bold vintage-y type of card....lol...hope I succeeded!! I created this card for Tiff's Sketch Challenge and the Moxie Fab World Bright and Bold Color Inspiration Challenge and these are the colors:

I hope everyone is having a wonderful and blessed day!! Love y'all and thanks for stopping by!!!

Such pretty cards, Tenia! But I, especially, love the way you've combined the Wee Memories Ribbon Challenge with the Cafe's color story in your first card! That ribbon is to die for and your dry embossed background gives such a great foundation to build your card upon! Thanks so much for playing with us in both challenges!
