Time Out Challenges // #192
...A word challenge!!  The word for this current challenge is HUNGRY!!  My little penguin is much so that he is juggling a bunch of ice cream cones!! Like how I cut and relocated his arm so that he could be licking the one cone?!?

Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy.

2 challenges inspired today's card...

Tic Tac Toe // #tttc123 ...A game board challenge!! My winning three in a row on this game board...Violet, Berries, Alphabet Stamp.  Stampin Up's Monogram Messages seemed like the perfect set to use for the alphabet stamp portion of this challenge.

TGIF // #326 ...A technique challenge!!  The technique called for in this challenge... Decorated Envelopes!!  I love this and do it with all my cards.  Each card that I make gets a matching might be stamped, have a matching piece of designer paper or just a simple strip of matching card stock but there is always a matching envelope!!

Color Throwdown #652 // Just Add Ink #564 // Freshly Made Sketches #495 // Paper Craft Crew #436

 2 cards // each inspired by 2 challenges...

Card #1...

Color Throwdown // #ctd652 ...A color challenge! Aqua, green, blue, and kraft is the color combo for this challenge.  I used Stampin Up's Night of Navy ink for my palms, sentiment and birds, Pear Pizzazz card stock for my palm trees die, Tempting Turquoise for my aqua back drop, and Soft Sky card stock for my strip of clouds.  It was a rest & relax type of color combo!!

Just Add Ink // #JAI564 ...A choose two challenge! We were given 3 elements and asked to choose two...the elements for this choose two challenge were sky, sea, or trees.  For this card I picked sky and trees.

Card # 2...

Freshly Made Sketches // #FMS495 ...A sketch challenge!  I used on circle but then replaced the other two circles with die cut leaves.  Fall is definitely not in the air yet here in Florida but a girl can dream of cooler evenings, bonfires and need for sweatshirts, right?!?

Paper Craft Crew // #PCC436 ...A tic tac toe challenge!  My winning three in a row run down the center of the board...dies, vellum, and markers.  I used a stitched circle die along with a leave die, a piece of printed vellum, and I colored the back side of the vellum with markers...three elements in a row for a win!


Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
