2 challenges in one

Hi everyone. I hope you are having a good week so far. I wanted to share a card with you that I made for a sketch challenge over at Taylored Expressions I used the Birthday Anya image from the Greeting Farm that my friend Carissa sent me. I love her. I colored her with Copics and Bic Mark-its. I also used Starlights glitter pens on the candle flame, her shoes and her bow. I used papers from a birthday pack that I found hiding amongst my things.

While I was blog hopping this week I noticed that the new blog Nutshells was running a new challenge where you find a currently running sketch challenge and make a card using that sketch along with any line of stamps that they sell in their store Well since I knew they carried The Greeting Farm I figured hey I could use this card for this challenge too. YAY.

ICS Challenge

Well it sure was a long weekend and not Monday is half over. Wow time flies. Ok so this weekend I got a couple cards done and one of them was for the IC Sketches Challenge #38 over at for this card I used some aged handmade paper a friend gave me (that is my solid background paper). I also used some patterned paper I got in swaps. the image is Edward, who is a Wild Sprout over at the Greeting Farm. I colored him in with Copics, Bic Mark-its. I inked up some chipboard and and then used eylets to give them a little something extra. I am also using this card for the Farm Fresh Fridays challenge over at the Greeting Farm's blog

Color Throwdown #64

Here is my entry this week for the Color Throwdown challenge found here The Challenge is to use the colors Black or dark brown, Baja Breeze, and Sahara Sand.

I followed a sketch that was issued in a group on Cafemom and I used Reeta, a Wild Sprout image from The Greeting Farm. I decided to go very minimal with the card. I like it but I feel like it's missing something. Oh well, I know that when I start monkeying with the cards then I wish I would have left them. So this time I decided not to second guess myself.

2 challenges in one

Well I made a halloween card for my boys using the challenge over at the Greeting Farm . This weeks challenge was brought to us by Kadie and the challenge was to make a boy card. I used the pumpkin head, the vampire and the mummy from the Spooktacular set. I was given these images from another card making momma, Carisa. I colored them in using Bic Mark-its and Copics. The PP is by American Crafts. I topped it off with the Boo Crew sticker.
I also used the color challenge over at The challenge was to try and use the following 4 colors (at least use 3): basic grey, old olive, rich razzleberry, and really rust. Well I was able to use 3 of the four, everything but the olive. I love doing their color challenges. If you havent played along before, you should.
