Blogger's Challenge #179: Color Challenge

Hope you all had a safe and blessed Thanksgiving! 

Our challenge this week was to create something using blue, mustard and rust.  I chose Pacific Blue, More Mustard and Cajun Craze.  I stamped my background of the flowers and butterflies and sponged the More Mustard and Cajun Craze before I ran that paper through my Big Shot and the lattice die.  Neat look, huh?

I also used some Victoria crochet ribbon that I had dyed for a previous project. 

Thanks for looking!  Please play along and take some time to see what the other players did for this challenge!

Blogger's Challenge #178: Give Thanks!

I chose to give thanks by making and sharing a couple of thank you cards!  The first one I made for a friend who invited me to an Affair of Tables.  The theme of their table was coffee and tea so I used the images from Morning Cup to make a background set and stamped it on the background Naturals Ivory cardstock.  I added a little extra color with the color spritzer and my Crumb Cake marker.  I also sponged a bit of Crumb Cake and Real Red to antique the look.  The button is from the Big Designer Button group called Candy Cane.  So cool to have some big button options!
I created the second card to include in a set of cards to be given as a gift.  I wanted something rather simple and quick.  I used the Elizabeth stamp set and the sentiment is from the set called Just Believe.  After adding the tied ribbon, my card was complete!

Thanks for taking a peek and be sure to check out the other Give Thanks challenges by the other Blogger's Challenge gals.  AND please play along!!!!

Blogger's Challenge #177: November Sketch Challenge

For our challenge this week, Lisa created this really cool sketch.  I really focused on the oval portion of it.
My classroom received a gift of two fans recently so I wanted to make a special thank you to the family that donated them. 

Have a super weekend and please be sure to check out what the other Blogger Challenge Players did with this super sketch!

Blogger's Challenge #176: Patriotic

Usually when you think of Patriotic, you picture the colors red, white and blue.  My town of Crookston is participating in the Beyond the Yellow Ribbon awareness week which is actually supposed to carry out throughout the year to support the families of those serving in the military.  Our Bible study watched a video on this idea this morning so that was my inspiration for finally completing the Blogger's Challenge!  (So sorry I'm late again!)  I wanted a super simple card that was easy to reproduce and I htink that I found it!  I used the Presto Patterns DSP with Daffodil Delight ink.  Then, with the ribbon of hope stamp and some punches, my card was complete!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to see what the other players did...I always wait to look at theirs until I finish my project so I'm anxious to check them out, too!!!
