This is a cracked glass square card for the Technique Challenge today (TLC140). I masked a little and did some sponging on the edges, but I'm basically posting this to show off the colors which I hope you can actually see well enough to appreciate. Soft Sky, Certainly Celery and So Saffron....I really like them together for spring.

New SCSC01 and Jami's Blog Challenge

This is for the new stalker/challenge chaser sketch challenge on Splitcoast shown here:

I punched the scallop circle out of the Dashing paper and layered a 1-3/8 inch Old Olive circle and the Poinsettia from Perfect Presentation stamped on Olive in a 1 inch circle. The Joy image is layered on a large oval punch in Real Red.

It is also for Jami's blog challenge (use Dashing paper and other restrictions-One was no hardware or brads, but punches and ribbon are okay....that's why I have circle punches in my corners.) shown here:

Such fun challenges!

QBee Box TLC139

This great little box design was created by Brenda/QBee on SCS. This is my version created for the TLC139 shown here -Her originals were super-cute Halloween designs.
What fun it was to make! It holds treats and is easy to open and reclose without disturbing the box, but you can see the treat through the transparency sheet too. They would be great in any color scheme and for many occasions! (I could use a bit of work on neatness though :) )

Popcorn slider

I was lucky to get to make a shoebox swap card similar to this in Allen, Texas at Milette's Shoebox Swap and Class Fest on Saturday, but mine uses the Sketch Challenge from SCS's Fan Club Forum and Perfect Presentation and Baroque Motifs instead of Season of Joy as well as different Dashing papers. (The inspiration was also red instead of Olive.) I really like this medallion from Baroque Motifs as a background.

I borrowed Illuminations from my upline, and I love it. It is fairly large but still easy to use and versatile. My two examples show it used as a Christmas card for Jen70's latest blog challenge to use Always Artichoke and Bravo Burgundy and as a Wedding card in Tiffany blue, oh I mean Soft Sky. The Cherish stamp blends beautifully with the background swirl from Baroque Motifs, and with the lovely pointed leaves in the swirl, the Hope stamp isn't half bad with the holly stamp from Background Basics.
