Color Challenge, DDC, and TLC Challenge cards



Hello everyone...hope you have had a great Tuesday!! I took my Dad to the doctor this morning and cleaned my dirty house most of the day....I must have looked pretty pitiful because my DH actually BBQed some steak...yummm!!! Then on the news tonight they reported that men who ate 1/4 lb of red meat daily have a 25% greater chance of having a heart attack and women have a 50% higher chance of heart disease....yikes!!! I guess it's nuts and berries the rest of the week!!! Anyway.....

Today's color challenge on Splitcoast was hosted by Jodi Collins and her colors were Kiwi Kiss, Pretty in Pink, and Baja Breeze.....such pretty colors!!! The Song Bird Silhouettes by Clear Dollar Stamps were stamped with Baja Breeze. The large bird was stamped twice and one was attached over the other after the image was cut out with the round Nesties.

The dp is by Stampin Up! and Primas, button, pearls, and ribbon finish it off.

The sentiment says" The purpose of life is a life of purpose"......perfect for anyone who stamps!!!










Charlene (LilLuvsStampin) challenged us (last Tuesday) to make a tag with green on it. I am only a week late but that is nothing new!!! I started out with a punch out tag from Basic Grey's Gypsy. I added a journal punch out from My Minds Eye, stamped the sweet little bird and branch from Cheep Talk, and added the sentiment from Botanical Blooms. The flower images stamped on the round Nesties cutouts are also from Botanical Blooms and the butterflies are cutout from a piece of scrap dp. Twill from Taylored Expressions and green gingham ribbon finish it off. If you would like to join in on the fun...be sure to add DDC to the keyword section when you upload so we can fine you tag. You can find all the DDC cards in the DDC gallery on Splitcoast.








The butterflies were cut out of a piece of scrap dp that I used yesterday for the TLC challenge....I love it when I can recycle!!





















I just love this little bird image from Cheep Talk......I stamped 2 images, cut one out and popped it up on the one stamped on the tag.










The Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast yesterday was to make this adorable little Easter basket. You will find the template and instructions on the challenge home page linked above.

I used Cameo Coral and American Crafts dp for the basket and the SU scallop punch around the edges. The *grass* is a piece of Green Galore that I ran through the crimper and cut tiny slices...kinda messy but at least I got the color I wanted!! The SU Pretties flowers were colored with Cameo Coral and Bashful Blue markers and a rhinestone brad was added for a little glam. I need to make several of these for my Grandbabies...they may frown at the size...it's only big enough for a few jelly beans!!

Thanks for visiting tonight....be sure to come back tomorrow for Wacky Wednesday and the Belli Challenge !!!
