Card Corner!

Happy Wednesday!
I've spent 1/4 of this day thinking that it was Tuesday...
that's what a Monday holiday will do to you :)
I'm sharing a couple of cards that I made for 
Monthly Challenge and this week's Card Corner.

For the Card Corner Challenge we were asked to use Roly Rosies
in some form or's what I came up with:
 Harkening back to the Owl Card that I made a few months ago,
I decided to once again use Roly Rosies in an unconventional way and 
fashion them as the eyes for my jack 'o lantern!

I started with a 4" circle and hand-cut leaves 
(I free-handed these, but svg files or punches could be used instead).
For the "stem", I cut a small portion from one of the Neutral Roly Rosies.
After rolling and securing the medium-sized Roly Rosies (black), I punched a small
circle that I then embellished with an even smaller glittered circle for the eyes.

Adding adhesive from the POGO Dispenser is an easy way to adhere 
the circle to the center of each bloom.  Lastly, I cut a some-what shewed
rectangle to create the nose.
Supply List: Makin' Waves: Surf's Up 12x12 Paper, Fish 12x12 Paper; 
Monster Mash: Fall Medley 12x12 Paper, Pick of the Patch 12x12 Paper and 
Magic Words 5 x 12 Sticker Stacker; Roly Rosies - Neutrals;
 Tools: Hybrid Petal Roller, POGO Adhesive Dispenser and Colored Foam Tape - White

Imaginisce September Monthly Challenge
participants are asked to create a card or layout using:
2 photos, a chevron pattern/design, 2 patterned papers and 2 embellishments.
Here's my take on the challenge...a card for my dad's birthday!
 I downloaded a couple of golf-related photos from the internet and 
used the HELLO CUPCAKE Collection to complete the card.

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
