World Card Making Day and some Cards

This is the day that just plain makes me happy, World Card Making Day!
 A day set aside just for all of us who LOVE making cards.  Of course, I want to share some cards with you.
 I created this card around The Play Date Cafe color combination. This was the combo for last week so it is too late to add it to the collection on their blog but I still love the colors and how my card turned out.
 The zig zag is a Hero Arts stamp.  I stamped it in the Plum and then colored the background with an orange stamp pad. The label shape and the leaf sprig are cut with the Cricut and the butterfly is from Pebbles.
 Here is The Play Date Cafe combo.
 Next up, I wanted to play along with the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger. 
 I chose to use numbers for my card instead of the alphabet letters that are in the Trigger. 
 The number stamp is from Kaiser Craft.  After I stamped it, I colored the background with a variety of stamp pads and spreay inks because I wanted a mix of colors since the Trigger has several different colors in it. 
 Next up, I used the challenge at A Blog Named Hero - to use white cardstock only. 
 All of the stamps are by Hero Arts.  I stamped the plaid background stamp on the white cardstock with a brown ink and then colored that with stamp pads and spray colors. 
The little line of children, the phrases and the chevron border are all stamped on the piece of paper that the plaid background stamp was stamped on.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Linda, you have a lovely style, yet each one of your cards is unique. They are all wonderful, but I have to say I am partial to the last one with the line of children. This is just wonderful, creative and perfectly executed!
