Challenges Abound!


If you click on the pics, you will see a larger picture which will open in new window (I think!).

This creation will serve to be my entry for two challenges. The colours pink, rose and copper, were to meet the requirements for Colour Challenge Monday ~ part 9 on Dapple Designs. I must say that I think Tami's choice of colours is just stunning. Thank you, Tami.

The design for this Gatefold card is from Beate's fresh and fun, for Weekend Sketch Challenge # 5. I love this design and it was made that much easier because my new Scor-Pal arrived in the mail yesterday. This tool is going to become a mandatory, must have tool for every cardmaker out there, trust me! I can't wait to use it again so stay tuned. Thanks, Beate, for a wonderful sketch challenge. I hope you are enjoying your holiday!

You may have read a previous post telling you that I had won a $50 GC to Scrappin' Great Deals offered as blog candy on Stampin' When I Can. Well I shopped on Thursday, and the goodies arrived yesterday. You could have knocked me over with a feather (no small feat I can tell you). Somebody must have lit a firecracker under Canada Post. I digress, sorry! Here's a picture of the goodies, sans a couple of items that will follow soon. Missing are embossing folder Spots & Dots and some brads in soft summery colours. Thanks to Sheila for such terrifically fast service. I love all the stuff. I did actually spend a little more than the GC, but what the hay, I'm happy! Again, clicking on the picture will give you a better view of the goodies. A very special thank you to Allison.

Another great colour challenge result, Barb. I pulled out those gorgeous colours to use, and will work on it later today.

Oh, such wonderful goodies from your prize! I love both of your cards and especially the color challenge. I finished mine last night....I love these colors together. Thanks for taking the challenge.

Way cute card - and love your goodies! It's always nice to get something new - and doubly nice when you don't have to pay for it!
By the way, thanks for coming to my blog - I am hoping as people see it, my readership will grow! Take care! *HUGS* Alex
