Hi crafty blog friends! 

There's another Sunday CAS challenge at Outlawz and this challenge is from Teresa - "It's Milk Chocolate day. Let's show our love of chocolate by using brown on our project".

We hope you'll come on over and play along with Teresa's challenge and have some fun....while you eat your chocolate! 

As it happened, Teresa's challenge worked for a homework assignment I had.  I'm taking the Summer Card Camp2 classes (they just finished yesterday and I'm so sad)

And the assigment was to step outside of your box and create something that's not your style and to use these colors and/or one of these sketches....

Two browns, one pool and two purples
Talk about a double challenge....this was really making me work.  But I wanted to do the homework and I wanted to try and step outside my comfort zone.  Here's a card I made using the color challenge (week 3 day 1) for Summer Card Camp2 and also for Teresa's CAS color challenge at Outlawz Challenges

Image is from Repeat Impressions #3415-I "Adirondack Chair" 
Sentiment - Simon Says "Be Sentiments"
Die - Simon Says "Be Sentiment Craft Die"
Also - Vivia Pearl Pens, CuttleBug EF, GKD Pure Luxury Papers, Spellbinder Label Dies.

That's it for now.  Thanks for stopping by and we hope you'll come to Outlawz and play along with Teresa's challenge and all the other challenges.  There's one for every day of the week.  Have fun and keept crafting.

Hi blogging craft friends,

I hope your week has been going well.  I'm here with my Repeat Impressions Rock Star Teamies to showcase another fabulous sketch from Wendy, owner and artist of RI stamps. 

Every other Wednesday, Wendy offers up a fun sketch for us to follow and play along with and we invite you to join in on the fun.  You can link your creation at The House That Stamps Built (RI Blog) for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate for some awesome RI rubber stamps.  If you use RI stamps in your creation, you'll be entered into the drawing twice.  So, come on and play along.

Here's Wendy's sketch for this week

Here's a card I created using Wendy's sketch
The RI stamps I used for this card are #1607-I "Baby" and the sentiment is #1102-E "Congratulations"
Come on over to The House and play along with the Rock Stars.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Happy crafting!!!
