Challenge Reveal Day!!! :D

Welcome back, my beautiful friends!!! :D

Woohoo!!!!!!!  Today is finally the day Lenny and I get to reveal the projects we challenged each other with!!!  Could I BE more excited?!!  (Imagine that in Chandler Bing's infamous tone!  HA!)  *grin*

Like I mentioned on Sunday's announcement post, the challenge in place needed to meet the following criteria:
  • The use of the honeycomb embossing folder.
  • The use of the woodgrain embossing folder.
  • Discreetly choosing a card to CASE that was created by the fellow crafty friend participating in this challenge!
And now, without further ado, I present to you my projects!!!!!!!!  Yippee!!!!! *leaping for joy*

*Be sure to continue reading 'til the end for a special giveaway*

First up:  The card I CASE'd was inspired by the card Lenny created when she guest designed on my blog, back in October 2012 (Using Lawn Fawn's stamp set: Admit One)   Here's a picture of that card in case you don't remember it:

And now, here's my version of Lenny's card:

As you can see, I kept the banners (Hero Arts: Hello Flags, retired), the tickets, the ferris wheel, as well as the blue color scheme, but changed the background pattern (Hero Arts: Four Leaf Grid), as well as the added embossed honeycomb texture on vellum paper... (:  Hope you like it, Lenny!!!! :D

Next up is this card using the Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder, stamped images "Love Birds" from Papertrey Ink (LOVE this set), and red paper-punched tiny hearts by Martha Stewart.

Lastly is this bee-sweet card displaying the Tim Holtz honeycomb embossing folder, once again.  The bee is from the Lawn Fawn "Bee Mine" set and the sentiment is again from Lawn Fawn's "Admit One".

Thank you, all SO much for taking the time to stop by today!  Hope you had FUN!!!  I am now gearing up to head over and visit Lenny's blog, and finally seeing--for the first time--the projects she's created for today!!!  Won't you follow me?!  Let's hop over to her blog together!!!!  :D  I seriously can't wait to find out what she's made!!! *leaping for joy* (;

'Til next time, my lovelies!!!  May GOD make His face shine upon you! XOXO

Grisel. I love what you did. GORGEOUS cards - all of them. I could not pick one to be my fave. Your cards are gorgeous. Love how you created a card inspired by one of Lenny's. Love the bird cage with the twine. And the yellow bee card is darling (love the color). Thank you for sharing.

Oh my goodness, have totally outdone yourself with these creations. How can I pick a favorite??? I've been looking at them for the last 5 minutes and just cannot decide which one I like best! I just love that little ferris wheel...and I just love that cute little bee....but if you PRESS me I will pick the love birds because I just love embossing on white! But oh my....these are all so great! Well done!
Off to Lenny's blog now!
