Wacky Wednesday, Dare to Get Dirty Card, and Color Challenge Card

Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday and you know what that's time for another Rubbernecker Wacky Wednesday. Today's hostess is Shelly and her challenge to us is to use buttons...any way your little heart desires!!!

The Rubbernecker Sunflower image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. The Rubbernecker sentiment was stamped on the vellum with Archival Jet Black and embossed with clear ep. It was attached at the botton and then May Arts Ribbon was gathered on the sewing machine and attached over the vellum. The buttons were all attached to the ribbon with glue dots.

Martha Stewart butterflies were punched out of Prism Intense Teal, antennas were drawn on, and black pearls were used for a little glam.

Stamps: Rubbernecker Sunflower and sentiment
Paper: Prism Simply Smooth White, Prism Intense Teal, Black, 7 Gypsies Market dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Archival Jet Black
Accessories: May arts Ribbon, Ribbons, Various Floss and Twine, Vellum, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Copics

Dare to Get Dirty Card...Combo of Six Dirty Challenges!!!

Papertrey Inks Fruitful images were stamped the various shades of orange, green, and pink...
some were masked and others were cutout and attached with glue dots and dimensionals. Bling was added to the lime, lemons, and orange and the rhinestone cherries were added to the ribbon. A little zig zag sewing was done on the ribbon and the sentiment is from the same set.

The challenges are as follows:

1. DTGD09Basilefamily - The inspiration challenge came to us from Joanne and she chose a beautiful pattern from the Lilly Pulitzer collection to use as the inspiration . I drew my inspiration from the colors and the collage effect.

2. DTGD09craftycaro - To make a card other than the standard A2 size...mine is 4 1/4 by 4 3/4

3. DTGD09DeborahLynneS - To use texture...I used flock on the peach and leaves.

4. DTGD09TruCarMa - to use food...I used fruit

5. DTGD09Laurely - to use ribbon in an interesting way.....mine is a little different

6. DTGD09BevMom - to use sewing...I sewed just a little on the ribbon.

I have finished 7 of the challenges now...only 14 to go...yikes!!!

Stamps: PTI Fruitful
Paper: White, Raspeberry Rizz, Prism Baby Pink Light
Ink: Certainly Celery, Raspberry Fizz, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie,
Accessories: Nestabilities, Bling, Dimensionals, Ribbon, Flock, Sewing Machine,

Four Challenge card!!!

Yesterday's Color Challenge on Splitcoast was to use Certainly Celery, Pixie Pink, and Apricot Appeal....thanks, Betty, for the great challenge!!!

Yesterday was a great day to go to a tea party (the Mudder's, that is) however, not sure how I feel about sharing my lily pad with a frog!!! Hummm, maybe he is the prince and will sweep me off my feet...all good as long as I don't have to eat the dragonfly!!! This is also for Anne's (Itsapassion) DDC challenge to use only edible papers and inks. That means to only use colors that have something edible in the name. You can see all the DDC cards here. I used the challenge colors but since I didn't have Pixie Pink I used Raspberry Fizz instead. The copics I used also had edible names and will list them below. We were also to add something edible to the design...The little dragonfly is my goodie for today...the frogs eyes are just bugging out at the thought of lunch!!!

One more challenge....this qualifies for
Deb's DTGD challenge to use texture...a cuttlebug folder was used on the background and the glitter counts a little. Ribbon and the tea cup charm finish it off.

Stamps: Frolicking Frogs
Paper: Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal, Raspberry Fizz, White
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal
Accessories: Tea Cup Charm, Googlie Eyes, Gold Cording, Ribbon, Punch, Nestabilities, Chalk for the sky and water, Glitter, Cuttlebug, Copics: Ice Cream, Sugared Almond Pink, Wax White, Cream, Lime Green, Pale Lemon, Pale Olive

Whew...that's all folks...time for this old Grandma to go to bed!!! Thanks sooo much for visiting this morning and I hope you have a wonderful day!!!!
