JUGS Color Challenge

Hi there blog friends!!!

It's time for a new challenge at JUGS!!!!  This week it's a color challenge #124 using green, teal, yellow and pink.  (I see flowers everywhere!!!!)

Have some fun and join us for a little color challenge pick-me-up from winter!!!!  Here's the challenge example.

My card

I created a center step card for this color challenge.  I love the ticking stamp called "canvas stripes" from Hero Arts - used as bg for the focal image.  I've used quite a collection of produts on this card.  The apron (I LOVE aprons) is one of my faves from Lockhart Stamps from Ellen Hutson.  I paper pieced it.  Die behind the apron is from MFT, the sentiment is from Gina K stamp set "Sweetest Blessings".  MS punch, ribbon and mulberry roses from my stash complete the card.

Join us at JUGS for a really great color challenge.

Have a great weekend!!!!

It's time for Designer's Choice Challenge at Repeat Impressions

Hello, blogger friends!!! 
Today we're playing a challenge and hopping with the Rock Stars at Repeat Impressions. 

It's Joy Hadden's Designer's Choice Challenge and Joy has challenged us to create a project using what we have on our craft table.  Now, what's not to like about that?  Thanks, Joy.....I used up some scraps and had some fun!!!

I've created this card

It's a real jumble of what was on my craft table.  The RI stamps I used were #1218 (the heart ballons) and #6103 (Thinking of You, sentiment).  I paper pieced the balloons with even more scraps and then coated them with Glossy Accents for some dimension.  The pink panel is a technique using ink and a spong applicator and shown on a video at StampTV. The lime green panel was embossed then torn for some fun detailing.

Thank you for stopping by and we hope you'll also play along with  us at Repeat Impressions - and get some of those scraps off your table too.

What fun it's been playing with my two Guest Designer spots this month.  Both JUGS and OUTLAWZ has some fabulous challenges for you and I hope you'll play along with either or both of them. 

The second week for February at Outlawz Sunday CAS challenge is a Valentine!  Now, I know you can do this one!  Come on over and play with the Outlawz gals and have some fun. 

Here's my CAS Valentine!

The colored small hearts were colored using a technique from the December/January TJN called "Chalked Embossed".  You need to be a member in order to get the newsletter and tons of great techniques - so worth it. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you'll play along with JUGS and OUTLAWZ for some fun prizes.
