A Little Help From My Friends

I’d like to let you in on a little secret…when I’m in a hurry or just lacking some mojo the first place I turn is a Challenge Blog.  Being a new member of the Double Trouble Design Team has exposed me to a bunch of new challenges, but I can’t let my old standbys go on without a little love.

This week is one of the most popular weeks at the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge – it’s a Tic Tac Toe week – we provide the Color Board and you decide which row you want for the win.  I chose a Designer Paper that had most of the colors in it from the retired Documented papers.

I also really liked Sketch #280 over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  I knew exactly how I wanted to work this card with one of the wood titles from Documented.  I hadn’t used any of them yet and with the heart in the upper corner I decided an anniversary card was right up my alley.  I have dear friends celebrating 32 years of wedded bliss this week so I thought that was a huge reason to get a card – seriously I don’t know how she’s put up with him that long, LOL!

 

Well that’s it for today…I wanted to share how I get a little help from my friends and hope that maybe you’ll give each of these sketch challenges a try too.

Double Trouble #8

Well, Trouble Maker and Double Dare are in the DOG HOUSE…they FORGOT my BIRTHDAY!  I told them it was really ok, that I celebrate for the ENTIRE MONTH and that they could make it up to me with all things that GLITTER!!!

They are trying to make it up to me with a BIRTHDAY PROJECT CHALLENGE!  For an additional entry into our random draw, Double Dare suggests you link up to Pause Dream & Enjoy.  The optional twist is to add GLITTER all forms to your project.

The Documented paper packet was my favorite from the Seasonal Expressions.  I chose to use my favorite papers for my birthday card and included LOTS of glittery accents, Bashful Glitter Paper, Gold Glitter Gems, Bitty Sparkles, Eggplant ribbon with a Gold Stitching and although you can’t see it well in the picture I also used my Gold Shimmer Brush on the vellum leaves under the banner.  That might be sparkly enough!!!

So what’s your birthday project going to look like…I hope it will include some glitter.  Make sure you come along to play with Double Trouble and let us know when your birthday is.

Friends – Color Dare #305

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors: Bashful, Blossom & Eggplant.

I reached for the Documented Paper that was sitting on my desk just begging to be used.  It was my favorite paper packet from the Seasonal Expression and now it’s retiring at the end of August.  This paper packet has a quirky friendship stamp that goes with it that has some funny sentiments about friendship and some cute flowers too!

OK, now it’s YOUR turn!  The full details on how to join the fun is in the sidebar of our homepage.  Each color dare is open until 9:00 CDT on Thursday!
