 3 challenges inspired today's card...

Cardz 4 Guyz // #c4g285 ...A masculine challenge using "shades of brown"!!  With Valentine's Day just a few months away decided to get started on my stash.  I think these "shades of brown" worked perfectly for the new challenge that starts today over at Cardz 4 Guyz...we hope you will come play along with us!!
Shades of Brown

Shopping Our Stash // #SOS459 ...A triple threat challenge!! A trio of something needs to be added to your card.  I have a trio of wooden hearts as well as a trio of panels on my card. I doubled the triple threat!!  The hearts have been in my stash for a long time...picked them up at a wood crafting shop in TN while on vacation. 

Retro Rubber // #rrcb172 
...A sketch challenge!!  Along with the sketch we are suppose to use a stamp set that is over a year old.  The Valentine's sentiment has been in my stash for over 7 years.  The wooden hearts have been in my stash for over 10 years.

 2 challenges inspired today's card...

CAS Colours & Sketches // #447 ...A sketch challenge!! This sketch was perfect for this mini embossing folder that I love to use this time of year!!  Nothing like a little cabin in the woods on a snowy day!!

Addicted to CAS #211 // Color Throwdown #670 // Freshly Made Sketches #513

2 cards...

Card #1 was inspired by 1 challenge...

Addicted to CAS // #211 ...A code word challenge!!  The code word for this current challenge is colorful!  I colored in the beanies on each of the owls a different color and then matched the colors with boarder stripes.  Almost as colorful as a box of crayons!!

Card #2 was inspired by 2 challenges...

Color Throwdown // #ctd670 ...A color challenge!! The trio of colors for this challenge...blue, yellow & red. I decked out my little gnome in blue yellow and red.  He looks ready to deck the halls...don't you think?!?

Freshly Made Skethes // #FMS513 ...A sketch challenge!!  I realized after I had my gnome all paper pieced (you know one of those time consuming techniques) that he was much taller than I remembered and not the best choice to represent the circle in the sketch but by then I was committed because of all the time I had spent on him.

Verse of the Day:

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,

Today's card was inspired by 1 challenge...

INKspiraitonal Challenges // #252 ...A photo challenge!! This empty chair in black and gold reminded me of a friend who just lost her husband.  This was her first Thanksgiving with his chair being empty so I used the inspiration to make a card for her.
I used gold embossing powder on black card stock...layered that oval onto some metallic gold paper...finished it off with a sentiment and ribbon.

Verse of the Day:

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
