MHKDesigns August/September Challenge

Hello Readers,

Well here we are at MHKDesigns to present a new challenge for you to try. But first here is my card for today, enjoy!
This card reminds me that fall is on the horizon.
I think it may be the straw that is used in this fantastic 'Fruit Borders' digi.
Once again using several parts of one image to create this fall'ish themed card.
Keep scrolling down there is a surprise twist to this card!
Check out all of MHKDesigns digital stamps

introduces a new monthly challenge
for August/September. Here is your inspiration.

The prize for this challenge includes:
Pansy Corner Digital Stamp Set
Pansy Corner stamp set

Do you see the twist to this card? The purple border is mounted to the back of the card.
It is very unexpected but so much fun when the recipient discovers it.
I have found this a way to give your cards a bit of uniqueness without looking too different.
The white butterflies were not meant to draw attention
but to blend right into the card's design.

Cupcake Inspirations: Challenge #372

Today I was killing time at a coffee shop waiting to pick up my son from a birthday party. The weather was bad so I pulled out my phone to check the radar. What it showed was all dark red and heading right for my house. My husband and daughter were home to hunker down in the basement and wait out the storm. 

Finally I got home. All was good until I drove down my road. It looked like all hell broke loose- Down power lines-one of which was laying on our driveway live and arching, full trees uprooted, just tons of debris EVERYWHERE. I am happy to report there was not a tornado in our area but lots of straight line winds. 

Afterwards, I was sitting down with my alcoholic beverage of choice reflecting, how exhilarating and scary it was to feel the power of nature's force and to actually be aware what was happening. Oh what a day to be alive!!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to see you at MHKDesigns blog and join us at our monthly challenge. No worries if you don't have any MHKDesign product yet, you can still play along. We will see you this month and looking forward to see what you create. Until then, take care.

All the best,

Products Used:

Pansy Corner Digital Stamp Set  Fruit Borders Digital Stamp Set

This is genius, Shawna! I think I say that every time, but it is true each time I do! I LOVE the way you used the plum card as a backing, not the actual card! And I TOTALLY adore the way you used and colored this image! Amazing creation, friend! Sending HUGS! :) Mynn xx
