I found a really nice blog for pretty and simple cards. Thought you may want to take a look!

I am so thrilled with this card. Inspired by the challenge Beate has, I quickly came up with a plan (not like me, usually I am submitting my challenge two weeks later!) I love this paper from Bali Breeze, and cut the flower out for the ceterpiece. It needed something so I polished it with Modge Podge! In real life it is shinny and pops off the page. I also tried the Thumping Technique on the stamped flowers! What fun that is- and you get a different look each time! I appreciate you looking.

Here is the color inspiration from Kristin. Pretty colors!

Translated into Stampin' Up! colors:

Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Close to Cocoa

My card with the colors. I just so happened to have this card already made for a workshop, but in different colors. I like the freash look the celery gave it. A quick greeting change and you could have any kind of card you needed!

I finally got around to finishing this card. I have played with it since I posted the challenge last week! I was trying to come up with a masculine card. It seems like I am always rushing to stamp a card when one of the many males in my life has a b-day. This one is okay- I like the big circles which are glued to the Tempting Turquoise- it looks like deco paper, but it isn't! The twill tape has a rub on rubbed on it! Now all i need is a birthday boy...

This is the card that I made to fit two challenges! One was the template Beate used for sketch 41 (WSC41) and the other was a color challenge using Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red, Orchid Opulence, and Basic Black. Aside from the fact that it took all day to come up with this card- I really like the result. Send me a link to cards you have made that fit either challenge.

What a fun weekend! My husband bought me this fun, sporty car to replace the mini van that I have been complaining about ever since we brought it home! I tried to do the responsible thing and buy a practical car. The problem was that I have never been one to do what everyone else does or have the "in"things. When we bought the van, I realized there were so many around that I could hardly find mine in the parking lot. It is a great car to drive, and my children and their friends love it!!! I now look for reasons to drive around! It is definitely convertible weather!

These cards are made with the Tart & Tangy set in the Occasions mini catalog, and the Sell- a -bration rubons! I am so happy with the excellent coverage these stamps give. Be sure to lightly sand all your rubber stamps for the best inking. There is nothing hard or time consuming about these cards, so they are easy to make a few at a time to have on hand for that card emergency.
