Combined Challenges: CASE-ing RTB and YNS XOXO

Greetings readers!

I hope you’ve had a great week so far. As most of you know, I’ve had a short week at my day job as I returned from Anaheim, California on Tuesday night. The last week has kind of been a whirlwind blur! I feel that I was just recovering from the holidays and then woooosh – I had to pack and leave on a jet plane. I just need a couple of days to find balance *wink* and get some photos ready for the after CHA blog post. If you follow me via Twitter/Instagram, you may have already seen some of my adventures.

I’m so excited to be posting my Raise the Bar AND Your Next Stamp’s Fun Friday Challenges today! I knew exactly what I wanted to do and how to combine the challenges when I found out about both! 

This week’s RTB challenge is to CASE my card as seen below, lol! If you have been following me for awhile, you’ll remember that the card I made was originally used for my application as a Greeting Farm Showcase Designer. 

This month’s YNS Fun Friday challenge is all about Hugs and Kisses and here is what I came up with:

Yumm!!! Isn’t that hot chocolate or mocha just delicious looking? I’m using the Hope Your Day is Delicious set from YNS. It’s so cute and I know I will be using the mug o’ java over and over again. The jar full of cookies in this set is just too cute as well! You’ll likely be seeing me use the set again for a cute Valentine’s card. 

Hope to see you playing along with us! If you upload to any online galleries, please label RTB127 as your keywords for the Raise the Bar challenge. To see what the other Bar-tenders have created, please check out all of their blogs below:

To see what my fellow YNS teammates have made please check out their blogs below. Also make sure that you share your card with us either on Facebook or Pinterest!

Thanks so much for stopping in to see me this chilly January day! I hope that this cuppa’ has warmed you a little bit! 😉 Enjoy your weekend!

  1. Fun stuff!!! My 8 year old, Maddie, is obsessed with Paris right now. (she thinks it’s funny our last name is Parys, but it’s spelled wrong) I will have to share this with her later! These are both gorgeous!

    You know you’re not going to get any sympathy from me about being tired from your CHA trip! lol!

  2. Aww these cards are super cute and your trip sounds like a world wind of fun and excitement!
