Reverse Confetti September Color Challenge

Hello! It's almost month end and time to put in my card for the Reverse Confetti September Color Challenge. Unfortunately this is the last Color Challenge but fret not! RC will have some fabulous sketches for us to try out in their Sketch Challenge!

This month's Color Challenge is on Pink, Gray and Yellow.

I used the circle from Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts for my balloon, and stamped it with the orange stamp from Fresh 'n Fruity. I also used the dies from Tag Me Too Confetti Cuts and Love Notes Confetti Cuts.

There's still a couple more days if you're interested to join in!

ME & Me September Challenge

It was the school holidays last week so we scooted off to "rainy" Phuket for a quick break! The weather wasn't all great but luckily we had a couple of days of sun and the kids and hubby got to play some tennis with Coach Nash over at Marriott. He's 63 but he is so fit and such a nice person so it was a joy to have had some time with him! Since I don't play tennis, I had some time to go over and catch up on the lessons in Stretch Your Stamps 2 at Online Card Classes. I used a couple of the techniques for this card - the mirror image and word art stenciling.

First, a little about this month's challenge by ME & Me!
The theme is Paper Piecing and Thanks.

It's my first time doing paper piecing so it took me a little while to cut those cuties from Up and Away! The sentiment is from Type It.

Thanks for looking!
