Once again I am creating a two for one card....I love putting color challenges with sketch challenges. This card was created for the color challenge from Sunday Stamps and the sketch challenge from Paper Craft Crew. Fall is in the air even here in Florida...we are thankful of the cooler mornings and evenings. This fall stamp, from Stampin Up's Happy Scenes set, is one of my all time favorites even though it has been retired. 3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) a gift shared, saved, surrender: Shared a meal with a friend who had surgery!! Saved memories in the form of photo albums!! Surrended my will to Him!!
Two challenges rolled into one...that is the deal today!! A color challenge from Paper Players and a sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches. While I like how my card turned out in real life, I can't get a good picture of it. I have take 3 photos and changed up the lighting and still my little flowers look black instead of eggplant!! I promise you the small flowers are not black!! This card has not stamping....just die cuts today!!
3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts said: I love you!! I'm sorry!! You are right!! Three short little sentences that when said yield big results!!
My card today is for the current Library Challenge...use the cover, the title, or the story as inspiration for your card. The Librarian's book choice this time is...Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. I don't know anything about the Harry Potter series so I went with the cover and pulled the red and yellow scarf and the backdrop of stars for my inspiration. This cute little snowman and scarf are out of Stampin Up's Snow Place stamp set and I also used the matching dies. 3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts burning: Outdoor fire pits (today is our son's 25th birthday and that was our gift to him) // the never ending burn piles that we are working on to clean up our debris from Hurricane Michael // Charcoal grill...tis the season!!
What a fun sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch this week!! So many possibilities!! I decided that washi take would be perfect for creating this sketch.
3Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts falling...RAIN!! we finally had some yesterday after weeks and weeks without!! In love...continuing to fall in love with my hubby each day, even after 30 years!! Leaves...one of the things I do miss about VA (besides my friends) is the leaves changing colors and falling!!
Today I a playing along with two challenges....the Addicted to CAS challenge and the Hand Stamped Sentiment challenge. The Addicted to CAS code word was PLAID, and the HSSC gave us a fall imagine from which I pulled the sunflowers as my inspiration. Funny thing about today's card....I used the stamped boxes from my daughters wedding as my focal point....we made little goodie boxes for the table settings and stamped them with Stampin Up's Painted Harvest set. 3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts sand...white beach sand that we enjoy here in the Florida panhandle//sandbox for kids...hours of fun//unity vase...two sands melding together...can not be separated!!
The cue card from this week's CASology challenge is...FEATHERS! Out came my feather dies!! Today's card definitely falls into the CAS category...clean and simple!! 3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts read: His word...daily inspiration//my Kindle...evening down time//newsfeed on my phone...keeping up to date, but not alway or should I say not usually a gift!!
Mojo Monday's sketch this week was the inspiration for today's card. I also decided to play with my new stamps from Stampin Up...Seaside Notions!! I got these before Jordan's wedding but just have not had the time to play with them yet. This sketch seemed like the perfect opportunity!! You might see a lot of this twine over the next few days...we had a tone of it left over from the wedding decorations. Even thought they were cut and tided pieces, I couldn't just throw them away!! So....be on the look out!! 3 Gifts Challenge:(using Ann Voskamp's 1000 gifts daily prompts) 3 gifts of change: Empty nest...not all bad!! The landscape...Hurricane Michael forever changed ours!! My attitude...getting rid of stinkin' thinkin'!!
