All In Good FUN!

Sometimes it's nice just to create a card simply for fun.  No Design Team commitment in mind, no challenge themes to worry about,,,,but just because you LOVE the products and want to create it.  That's what this card today is.  I saw a similar card posted on Pinterest that was posted by Roree Rumph back in 2011 when this AWESOME line, 5 and Dime. was released by October Afternoon.  I own SO much October Afternoon product, so every now and then I have to pull it out and recreate some of these sweet cards.  I love the inspiration I find on Pinterest.  Don't you?
I used several patterned papers, stickers, ephemera, buttons, and a rubber charm all from October Afternoon 5 and Dime collection.  In addition to that, I used some blue tickets from Prima (I had already used the pink tickets from OA), and I inked the chalkboard paper with white chalk ink.

Luckily, I've found a couple of challenges where this sweet little October Afternoon card will fit the current challenge theme.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a blessed day, and please stop by again soon.

CropStop - March Challenge #26 - Anything Goes - I used my Tombow Monoadhesive (best adhesive EVER for every-day cards and projects)

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Simon Says "Make a Rainbow" - My "rainbow" of color is found first in my borders, and second in my sentiment. I love colorful cards!

Blessings to you,


  1. I agree w/you about Pinterest! There's almost too much inspiration!! You card is so fun Karen! Great mix of textures, patterns and design!

    Thanks for the invitation to Guest Design again. I'm sorry but I need to say no this time. I deal w/chronic pain and it's gotten worse lately. I would not be dependable even giving me the scripture ahead of time.

    If things turn around I'll let you know. I truly appreciate your leadership, time and hard work keeping WAW going! You're a jewel!

  2. Karen, your card is just gorgeous. Glad you had some time for yourself.

  3. What a wonderful card with the black and white contrast - so dramatic!

  4. I love browsing Pinterest too! It's my go-to for inspiration when I'm stuck!
    Love your card - anything with tickets is always fun!
    Thanks for linking up to Cropstop - it's a joy to see your work appear in the gallery!

  5. Goooooooooooregeous!!!! Love the patterned papers, and the way you have arranged it all...
