Playing Catch Up Again!!!


Good evening everyone!! I finally had a chance to sit down and upload all these cards!!! My Grandchildren left yesterday and I have been busy cleaning, washing clothes, shopping, working on taxes, church, napping...my, oh, my!!! Anyway.......

This month's Dirty Dozen/Dirty Dozen Alumni challenge was to case one of our first cards...to see how far we have come from those first days. I chose to case my Southern Splender card.








I kept the same theme and colors but changed the image, design, papers, and embellies. The Hampton Arts stamp was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. The paper is from Graphic 45 and Grungeboard replaces the feather.





Limited Supply Challenge



The Limited Supply Challenge on Splitcoast this week was to make a card using something in the Soft Subtles line, i.e., soft and a spring flower or bulb must be the main image.



The Clear Dollar Stamps Stamp March Flower of the Month was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. The background designer paper is from Stampin Up!and I used Bashful Blue and So Saffron cardstock. Primas, pearls, scallops, and ribbon finish it off.






My 10 year old DGD Autumn made this card for the LSC challenge Friday. She colored the Penny Black image with markers and stamped the See D's sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa. The background paper is by SEI and primas, pearls, and ribbon finish it off.





Sketch Challenge and DDC Challenge



I made this Wednesday for the sketch challenge on Splitcoast and also for the DDC challenge last week hosted by Francie G. to make something Springy with a bunny somewhere on the card. You can see all the DDC cards here. It's not to late to play along...just add DDC to the keywords section when you upload your bunny card. I used this beautiful Northwoods stamp from Stamper's Dream, colored it with copics, cutout with Nesties, and attached with dimensionals. The background panel papers are Stampin Up! dp and flowers, leaves, buttons, and a clip with a little ribbon finish it off.










I just love this image and had to give you a closer look!!













Color Challenge


The Color Challenge on Splitcoast was to use Riding Hood Red, Summer Sun, Kraft, and Black....yikes!!! It took me a while to get it together with those colors!!!

The Inkadinkado image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. The sentiment is by See D's, the black flourishes are stickers, and the ribbon is from Flourishes. The background paper is from Graphic 45 and it was layered with Riding Hood Red and black.

Whew!!! I think I'm all caught up now and ready for a new week!!! Have a great night and thanks sooo much for visiting!!!
