She's dressed in yellow, she says hello.

Good morning All!! Hope everyone has had a good start to their Tuesday.


Challenge #1: The Corrosive Challenge - this is my first time entering :) It looks like a really fun challenge!

Here is the sketch this week:



And my entry - I have been dying to use this little crow and crow paper:



*Gasp* BUTTONS!!



Some stitching to add to Mr. Crows wing, isn't he a lil cutie???


Card Ingredients: Recollections Autumn paper and embellishments; Recollections cardstock; Making Memories buttons; hemp twine.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Challenge #2: Unscripted Sketches is up with their next sketch this week. This is a great weekly challenge - you should go check it out!

Unscripted Sketches #23:


And my entry (BTW: I think I have finally figured out my camera - it is the exposure I have to play with)



No buttons - shocking I know!! Instead I wrestled with this stupid ribbon for an hour - not sure what I was thinking... Ribbon really isn't that tough!!




Card Ingredients: Making Memories paper; Recollections cardstock; K&Co flower embellishment and me and my BIG ideas "Dream" embellishment.

Happy Tuesday!!!!! Half way through the month - so hard to believe!!!

Love these! The crow is so cute and the papers are awesome. Love the buttons and the twine! Gotta disagree on the second card...ribbon IS that hard! :) But, I'm bow challenged so I guess I have some issues. haha You did a great job with the ribbon and the bows...awesome!

Ha ha, I know what you mean about ribbon. I have had my issue times as well. Your projects are great and I never would have guessed you're working on a limited budget. Guess it just proves that money's not everything (thank goodness!). My favorite part is the stitching on the crow. :)

Thanks for leaving a comment when you visited my blog. It's so much more fun that way!
