I *heart* challenges!

Good Morning All (this is a looooong post)!!!

First off, I would just like to thank everyone for all the encouraging and meaningful comments. It sure makes my hobby worthwhile!! xoxo

Second, I got Top 5 at The Pink Elephant on my card. I am so thankful that others enjoy my work, like seriously thankful.

Third, I have been trying my hand at image stamping. So don't laugh, as I am a NEWBIE :)

Fourth, SPCC is up with another color challenge (Samantha has 3 color challenges for this week!).

Here is color combo #14:



AND
... Mojo Monday also is up with a sketch challenge - this is my first time participating.

Here is Mojo Monday week 103 sketch:

Since I don't have enough hours in a day, I have combined the two challenges. I am so mad at myself because I just can't seem to "whip" up a dang card. For some reason it takes me hour after hour after hour after hour just to complete one bloody card!!! What the heck is WRONG with me - pooey!



Details:


Card Ingredients: Recollections Autumn paper; Recollections cardstock and stamps; Crayola markers (for ink).


Fifth (phew), The Pink Elephant has a color challenge this week:

Red, Yellow, Black & White


Here is my entry (BTW: I used a brick red color)


Detail-a-rooos --- more buttons, I know:


Card Ingredients: Making Memories and Recollections Autumn paper; Recollections cardstock and stamp; Crayola markers (for ink).

Happy Thursday!!

I understand that frustration with being unable to whip up a card. My cards usually take a few hours too. I love what you did with the trees and the Mojo sketch. Great card. TFS

Allison said...

I love how you have the wood like paper (or so it looks like, lol) in the background... so clever since your images are all trees! Cute!
