Turn Your Face to the Sun...

Happy Friday Friends!

Can you believe in only ONE week (plus a day) it's Christmas?! Tonight we took the kids to see the light display at Van Dusen Gardens, which was just beautiful, and *so* festive.

What a perfect time to share non-holiday cards with you, right?

I have two cards to share with you today, both for the Flourishes Noon Time Challenges for this month's release. I love these challenges, and they really test me, because there is not a lot of time to get them done!

The first challenge is called Night & Day, which means we were to use a time of day to inspire the theme of our project. I decided to pick the beautiful warm sunshine of a perfect summer afternoon.

I warned you I was addicted to stamping toile with these stamps. They are just too perfect!

For my sunflower card, I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch and tweaked it a bit to suit my card.

The second one is a colour challenge, inspired by pears, since Flourishes is releasing a beautiful pear set this month. We were challenged to use Deep Rose, Light Green and Tan as our colours.

I apologize for the terrible photos... today was incredibly grey, never mind the fact I was shooting photos near the end of the day. I was lucky to get *any* photos!

I also just wanted to mention that I have started a Facebook Page... I just thought it would be fun to have a place to keep in touch when I have little bits to share, but not enough for a whole blog post. I'd love to see you there, and you can find me by clicking the link on the right side of my blog!

Have a great weekend!

Double YUM! What beautiful toile you've created. And I love the pretty ribbon/felt combination on the 2nd card!

Oh these are gorgeous! Lovely and sunny, and these stamps are just beautiful! I have tracked down a U.K supplier of Flourishes, and I've got a little list for the New Year lol! Have a very Happy Christmas Meredith! xx

These are both FABULOUS, and wonderful takes on the challenges! The Sunflower set is one of my faves, and I love how you've used it on the first card. And great colors on the second one for the Pear challenge! Thanks for joining us!
