Card #1 inspired by one challenge...

Just Us Girls // #JUG599 ...A photo challenge!!  For my inspiration I used the colors and the dots!  Stamped dots seemed to be the perfect back drop for this silhouette die from Stampin Up's Friend Like You bundle.

Card #2 was inspired by one challenge...

Sunday Stamps // #SS264 ...A sketch challenge!! Front and Center was the title of this sketch and with the large focal layers it does just that!!

Verse of the Day:

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Card #2 was inspired by 3 challenges...

Color Throwdown // #ctd657 ...A color challenge!!  The color combo for this current challenge red, green, turquoise, and gray.  (Okay...I'm not sure what happened! The colors did not come through correctly in my photo...the bottom book is turquoise, 2nd book is red, the third book is green and the sponging is gray!! Couldn't redo the photo since I have mailed it!!  CRAZY!!  Didn't notice it till I went to post it)

Global Design Project #306 // CAS Colours & Sketches #434 // Just Add Ink #569

 Two cards today...

Card #1 was inspired by 1 challenge...

Global Design Project // #GDP306 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch was perfect for a "school" project!!  All "measured" and created with love for one of those teacher heroes that are out there getting things done!

Card # 2 was inspired by 2 challenges...

CAS Colours & Sketches // #433 ...A sketch challenge!!  I like the line up of multiple words called for in this sketch. I decided rather than repeat the same word over and over I would use a quote.  I may just be back with a second card that uses a repeated sentient.

Just Add Ink // #JAI569 ...A letter challenge!!  For this current challenge we are to add the letter "N".  Nautical is my added "N".  I kept this card very CAS...clean and simple!!


For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.

TGIF Challenges #330 // Time Out #195// Color Hues #24 // Try Stampin on Tuesday #520 // Retro Rubber #165

 2 Cards...

Card #1 was inspired by 2 challenges...

TGIF Challenges // #tgifc330 ...An "inspired by" challenge!! Be in inspired by the new Stampin Up mini catalog or on of the design team members.  This card was inspired by one of the design team members' card...Melissa Stout.  I just loved her card and decided that her card would be my inspiration!!  Thanks Melissa for the inspiration.

Time Out // #195 ...A theme challenge!! The theme for this current challenge...colored base cards.  I rarely do this any more but love the look!!  Thanks for the inspiration...you got me out of a rut!!

Card #2 was inspired by 3 challenges...

Color Hues // #TCH24 ...A color challenge!!  The color duo for this current challenge is Turquoise & Coral.  I used Calypso Coral and Tempting Turquoise (retired) from Stampin Up.

Try Stamping on Tuesday // #TSOT520 ...A sketch challenge!!  We were also challenges to get messy and try out ink splattering.  I got messy (always do when I am stampin) but opted for a splatter stamp!!

Retro Rubber // #rrcb165 ...A "mode of transportation" challenge!! The catch...stamps must be over a year old!!  My splatter stamp is from Stampin Up's Swirly Bird which came out is 2016.  The bicycle stamp (my mode of transportation) is just over a year old...got it in the spring of last year.


His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.

Just Us Girls #598 // The Paper Players #555

 2 challenges inspired this card...

Just Us Girls // #JUG598 ...A color challenge!!  Yellow, Pink, and Green is the color combo for this current challenge.  Carol mentioned bright shades or pastels in her challenge post, but what about vintage?!?  Here is a vintage take on this color combo...what do you think?  What will Carol think?

The Paper Players // #PP555 ...A sketch challenge!! The angles and lines of this sketch had me thinking vintage!  So...here is my take on the sketch with a vintage theme.


Just Add Ink #568 // Inspired By #183

2 cards...

Card #1 inspired by one challenge...

Just Add Ink // #JAI568 ...A sketch challenge!!  Another fun sketch perfect for using up designer papers from my stash!!  This summer I have made it my goal to not purchase any more designer papers and put a dent in my stash.  Slow process because I had quite the stash!! 

Card #2 inspired by one challenge...

Inspired By // #IB183 ...A photo and a sketch challenge!!  I used both the photo and the sketch.  My inspiration logic...instead of actually circles I let the flower clusters be my circles // Pink Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Basic Gray were my color picks to represent the color combo in the photo
