Sketch~N~Scrap Challenge // #SNS240 ...A sketch challenge!!  I love the layers called for in this sketch.  I flipped the sketch so that I could use this bingo EF.

The Paper Players // TicTacToe Challenge // Freshly Made Sketches // Global Design Project

 2 Cards...

Card #1 inspired by two challenges...

The Paper Players // #PP637 ...A sketch challenge!!  This was a perfect sketch for my little barnyard scene.  What do you think of my "rising sun" for the dome portion of the sketch??  I like it!!  The sun is rising and the farm animals are stirring!!

TicTacToe Challenge // #tttc205 ...A game board challenge!!  My winning 3 in a row on this TicTacToe game board: critters (farm animals), coloring (water color pencils), and scene (a barn yard scene).

Card #2 inspired by 2 challenge...

Freshly Made Sketches // #FMS583 ...A sketch challenge!!  I love this cloudy day sketch.  At least I interpreted it that way!  The sunshine peeking through the clouds was created with the left overs from my "sunrise" die cut on card #1.  Use those scraps ladies...some times they make the best cards!!

Global Design Project // #GDP391 ...A theme challenge!!  RAIN or SHINE!!  I went with the shine!!  I love it when the sunshine peeks through on a cloudy day!!

Spring Time Rain Showers

2 challenges inspired today's card...

Global Design Project // #GDP391 ...A theme challenge!! "Rain or Shine" is the theme for this challenge.  I went with the rain portion of this challenge.  I think being sick is like a cloudy day!!

Papercraft Challenges // #PC93 ...A theme challenge!!  SPRING!!  Springtime is full of rainy days!!  I usually think of flowers blooming for spring time challenges, but I decided to go with the rainy day part of spring for this challenge.

3 Challenges // Technique & Color & Theme


3 challenges inspired today's card...

TGIF Challenges // #tgifc417 ...A technique challenge!!  Partial die cutting is the technique that is being spotlighted for this challenge.  I had to look this one up.  After a bit of trial and error I came up with this dragonfly card.  I stenciled the uncut portion of this die since this die doesn't have a stamp to match it.

As You See It // #AYSI297 ...A color challenge!!  Parakeet Party, So Saffron, Coastal Cabana, and Gorgeous Grape are the colors called for in this challenge!!  A really "tweet" color combo.

Addicted to Stamps & More // #444 ...A theme challenge!!  Any Occasion!!  Birthday it is!!  Cause I need birthday cards more than any other occasion.

New Challenge @ Shopping Our Stash

 Today begins a new challenge at...

Shopping Our Stash // #SOS495 ...A "use your stash" challenge!!  For our new challenge that starts today, we want you to FOLD IT UP!!  Use a fancy fold of some sort.  I decided to "roof line" fold to create a bird house.  My MIL loves birds and I made this card for her for Mother's Day.  From my stash, I used these tiny paper flowers that I have had for over 10 years.  There are so so so many of them in this little jar.  The ultra mini pearls in the center of the flowers finishes of a sheet that has been in my stash for many years...again the sheet had sooo many!!  I am kinda sad to have used them all and will have to find them again...those teeny tiny ones are harder to find!!
"Fold It" #SOS495

Now it is your turn!!  Come join the fun and play along with our new challenge.  The rest of our design team has lots of great inspiration to get your creative juices flowing.  So...hop on over to our blog, check out all the fancy folds, and play along with us!!

Today's card was also inspired by 2 other challenges...

Color Hues Challenge // #TCH62 ...A color challenge!!  The duo of colors for this challenge: GREEN & PURPLE.  I used Stampin Up's Garden Green card stock and some purple paper flowers that I have had in my stash for so long that I can't remember where they are from.

Inspire.Create.Challenge // #ICC ...A technique challenge!!  They also have a "fancy fold" challenge!!  Great minds think alike!!  We get to "kill two birds with one stone" this week!!  Yikes...not the best saying with my choice of stamp sets!!  Stampin Up's Birds & Branches was the perfect set for this birdhouse card.

Card #2 inspired by 2 challenges...

Jingle Belles // #JB-23-09 ...A Christmas challenge!!  The current challenge is to make a Christmas card with leftovers!!  I had this cluster of tiny pieces on my work space...leftovers from my rainbow sentiment card that you can find here.  This colorful little pieces seemed like the perfect decoration for a Christmas tree.  Wouldn't you agree!?!

Leftovers // JB-23-09

Paper Craft Crew Challenges // #PCC514 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch was the perfect starting point for my leftover Christmas card.  Thanks for another great sketch!!

Freshly Made Sketches // Just Add Ink

 2 challenges inspired today's card...

Freshly Made Sketches // #FMS582 ...A sketch challenge!!  The two circles called for in this sketch had me thinking of this spiral shell from Stampin Up's Friends Are Like Seashells.  

Just Add Ink // #JAI649 ...A color challenge!!  The color combo for this challenge is Poppy Parade, Bermuda Bay, and Smokey Slate.  A beachy combination in my mind!!
