This week's Watercooler Wednesday Challenge is hosted by Helen and it's All About Occasions. Here's a gate fold card I made from one that has been laying around for such a very long time.  I've been using up bits and pieces.  It's been so long since I made some of them that I can't remember what products I used.  No matter, as it gives me another card to add to my stash.

WWC296 - Michelle's Challenge: Anything Goes With a Feminine Twist

So, how is your Wednesday going?  It's a wonderful Autumn day here in the Sierra Nevada.  I'm enjoying it now as we have some cold coming our way this weekend.  I hope any snow stays in the mountains and out of the valley.  I'm sure that's why I thought flowers were a way to keep warm and sunny on my mind.

This week Michelle is hosting our Anything Goes With a Feminine Twist over on the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  If you get a chance, come join us.

WWC295 - Karen's Challenge: All About Occasions

And, Wednesday has rolled around again.  Karen is hosting our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and it's All About Occasions.  It gave me the chance to play with some new stuff from Taylored Expressions.  I used the Seasonal Spring stamp set, the Seasonal Sprig Mini Slim Stencil and the Stitched Rectangular Stacklets.  There is also a Seasonal Sprig Cutting Plate but that one I did not use this time.  You'll see it in upcoming Christmas cards.

WWC294 - Marsha's Challenge: Anything Goes With a Masculine Twist

This week I'm hosting the Anything Goes With a Masculine Twist over at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  I needed a birthday card for my grandson who has just turned 14.  I thought fireworks was a good way to start the celebration.

This is the Fireworks Background Stamp & Stencil set from Taylored Expressions.  You stamp the stars, then add the fireworks using the two stencils in the set.  It is so easy to do and you can get so many different color combinations.

WWC292 - Dawn's Challenge: Anything Goes With a Feminine Twist

Wednesday has come around again and it's time for a new challenge at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  This week it's our Anything Goes With a Feminine Twist.

I had a play with a new set of stencils.  It's Taylored Expressions Bokeh Layering Stencil.  All you do is line up each layer of stencil, add your color and you get all these neat little circles.  The sentiment is from the Bubble Greetings stamp set also from Taylored Expressions.  I'm looking forward to using these stencils again.

WWC291 - Fifth Week Anything Goes Challenge

Well, it's  the fifth Wednesday of the month and it's time for the Watercooler Wednesday Fifth Week Anything Goes Challenge.  I'm sharing a sympathy I recently made.  This was a background I had done some time ago and I added the sentiment strips and a wee bit of a leaf branch I had in my stash.  I must say that my stash is steadily dwindling and it won't be long before I'll have it all used up.  But, of course, that means I can fill up the stash bin again.  It never ends.

WWC289 - Heidi's Challenge: Anything Goes With a Masculine Twist

Welcome and a happy very smoky Wednesday to you all.  With so many fires burning in California, we are getting lots of smoke blowing into Reno.  I can't see my mountains!  But be that as it may, it's time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  Today Heidi is hosting our Anything Goes With a Masculine Twist.

I made a very simple birthday card as I have several coming up next month and I need cards for each and every one.  This is the Ship with Clouds stamp set from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  I added a wee bit of blue for the water and a wee bit of gray for the clouds and stamped the ship image in black.  I didn't color any part of the ship but I have some ideas percolating in my head that I'll share with you at another time.

It's time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  This week Michelle is hosting our Anything Goes With a Feminine Twist challenge.  It was an opportunity for me to play with one of my new silhouette stamps from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  You'll see more of those stamps in the future.

I stamped the image on white cardstock and colored it using my Prismacolor Colored Pencils.  The stamps is Rainy Day and I can see all kinds of seasons using this image.  I mounted the colored image panel on a layer of colored cardstock and for the life of me I don's remember what the color is.  I can't find the name of it anywhere but I like the way the image stands out on it.
