Paper Dolls Challenge...


what number is this?
*giggle*
Can you tell we've all been a little busy...
and kind'a let some challenges pass us by?
I think we've all been through a lot lately...
kids...
family...
work...
remodels...
some life altering events...
we've had some full plates the last few months.
So I'm going to try my best to get us all back on track!
The "experts" say the best way to get some creative juices flowing...
finding your mojo...
is to CASE someone...
so that's exactly what I'm going to challenge everyone to this week.
And my target...
the woman who sees the world through rainbow colored glasses...
whose talent with color combos awe and inspire...
the one...
the only...
Dawn McVey.

So the challenge is to go over to her inspiring blog...
My Favorite Things...
spend some time...
like you don't already ;) ...
and find a card of hers that delights...
inspires...
and then CASE!

Now I chose the card I did because it sold me on this set last month.
It was already on my radar...
bleep...bleep...bleep...
but this card zeroed in on the target...
and BOOM!
Mine.

Why did this card sell me on the set?
Because when you are still making cards on December 23rd...
like someone who shall remain nameless...
*giggle*...
you want something...
quick...
easy...
and what is easier than this?
A CAS one layer card that can be popped into the mail and onto it's destination in minutes...
so that way at least the postmark reads that it was mailed before December 25th...
and in a particular person's world...
that means you're early!
*giggle*

So here's what I did...

I changed the colors just a bit...
because...
not including my musical tastes...
I'm a very traditional kind of girl.
Though in real life...
I'm actually a white light girl...
but white doesn't show up too well on white so...
I went with traditional colored bulbs...
red, green, orange, yellow and blue.
And then I used my fave sentiment from the set...
and in mere minutes...
viola!
That's all it took to create this.
Perfect for those annoying people...
who shall remain nameless...
that wait until the last minute to start working on their Christmas cards.

So show me your best Dawn McVey...
and then head over to the PTI Paper Dolls blog...
and link up your creation with the linky provided at the bottom of the post!

  1. I love this Renee. Cards with Christmas lights always make me smile, as I have some wonderful memories of my Dad and his love/hate relationship with hanging Christmas lights. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This is a great challenge! I do love Dawn's style so this shouldn't be a hard challenge!

    I remember growing up watching my dad hang our lights (yes they were multicolored like this back then....hehe) on our house. And then seeing them all lit up was just magical! Thanks for the memories!

  4. I too love Dawn's cards. In addition, they are usually easy to case.
    You did a great job with your card. Like you I am a traditionalist. I like the colors you chose!

  5. As my grandma used to say, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." She must have been a traditionalist too, not to mention wise. Fab card, Miss Renee!

  7. I love this card! It reminds me of my childhood when my dad would string the lights on the outside of our house with the bulb lights, the ones that no one uses any more but have the best look. Beautiful card!
