On a happier note, it is my daughter, Elizabeth's birthday and we will be celebrating this weekend. My little Chihuahua, Tinkerbell, was also born 13 years ago today.
The "Color Challenge" at The Outlawz and the "Anything Goes" challenge at TTCRD is up and running. Lindsay selected the cute inspiration photo and challenges us to use the colors and make a masculine card. Here is mine:
I am so bad about throwing my product packaging away when I open them up, so I never know who to give credit to! I love my two embossing folders that I used. The background is chicken wire and the red on the side is barbed wire. Thought they would both lend to a masculine feel. I distressed the edges of my accent papers and the barbed wire with Color Box chalking ink and my motorcycle stamp is from Stampin' Up. The Best Wishes embellie is from Recollections. I seem to buy a lot of their products lately. The accent paper the motorcycle is stamped on is really palest blue.....it just didn't photograph well.
At the "Anything Goes" challenge, Team B, Deonna, Sandra, Candy, Kathi and Linda have some FAB inspiration for you. I hope it inspires you to create a little something to enter the challenge. Their are fabulous prizes to be randomly won and you will meet the nicest crafters. This is one of the best reasons, to me, to participate. I love interacting with other crafters!
The sponsor this week is "Eureka" stamps! They have some pretty fantastic digis available and I hope you will check them out.
Remember that you can enter twice, so have fun! The Fall issue of the TTCRD magazine is almost ready for publication. There are so many free digis that it off sets the subscription! There are also many tips, tricks, tutorials and inspiration projects for you!
The site is going under some construction, but it is still available to play!
