Color Dare #360

Happy Friday I’m excited to be back on the Design Team for the  Color My Heart Color Dare.   This week our challenge is to pick a row and play Tic Tac Toe!

I chose the Top Row Pansy, Heather and Sugarplum – although these three colors retired from the CTMH lineup on August 31 – I couldn’t resist playing with them one last time.

I used the Dandelion Wishes stamp set and chose to have some seeds floating across the light side of the Sugarplum cardstock. I loved blowing dandelions as a kid, but not so much as an adult when there is a field of yellow in my grass.

You can visit the Color My Heart Color Dare blog for all the information on how to play along as well as finding additional inspiration from the other Design Team members.

Double Trouble #20

It’s time for more trouble…but this challenge we are reminding you to spread some peace, love and kindness as you create! It’s National Hugging Week – now that’s one that I can get after!

Trouble Maker says Love Is in the Air – create a project using something you’d find in the air – balloons, banners, sunshine, clouds, birds, etc.

Twisted sister says you can’t have love without a little sparkle – her optional challenge is to use some glitter, Nuvo drops, something metalic or anything sparkly & shiny!

My card features a Hot Air Balloon cut from the Cricut that I’ve touched with some Shimmer Brush for a little sparkle. I just happened to have the Hugs For You cardmaking kit stamp set sitting on my desk so guess what sentiment I used, LOL!

Don’t forget that Double Dare says if you meet the Sparkle & Shine elements that you can link your card to the Paper Girls here.

I hope you’ll come and play along…it’s a lot of work to coordinate these challenges and we love seeing your entries!

Snowflakes Glisten

My friend Debi (who was never going to do challenges) has been sharing the posts at Heart 2 Heart and I’ve been inspired to go take a peek at what she’s been up to and of course I decided that I needed to play along!

Since I was in the Coop early this morning and got a few things done that NEEDED done I discovered some extra play time so TWO blog posts in one day.

The Challenge for the week of October 22nd was called Glitter & Glam and since everyone knows that Blings My Thing how could I not play along?!  I knew right away that I wanted to use a big snowflake cut from Sugarplum Glitter Paper, I also knew that I wanted to use the barnwood paper from the Seasonal Mixins (such a fun packet of paper).  I turned to my trusty Love of Color Guide and found that Mink, Eggplant and Sugarplum would make a delightful color trio.  I also had some retired Eggplant shimmer ribbon so it made perfect sense to use it.  I sprinkled a few bitty and regular sparkles around the card to add a little more “Glam”.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card…now I’m off to feed a calf and start the regular chores of my day!  BTW it’s 5:30am and I think it’s going to be a long day!
