Two cards....

6 challenges!!

You know me - can't just make one card for one challenge! That would be WAY too easy! LOL So here I go again. I have two cards to show you tonight.


Don't you just love this stamp?? Her name is Emma and she's from All That Scraps. I am not usually a stamper, but I think I did pretty good on this one. I picked it up in the digital form, as I am also not really a beach person, so I thought I would use this one on a limited basis, so I figured digital was PERFECT!

Here are the challenges for little Emma!
  • ABC Challenge blog asked for Orderly - they're on the letter O. It appeared to be defined as symmetrical - so a rhinestone in each corner, bow on each side, focal point centered.
  • If The Shoe Fits... asked for a beach theme - obviously Emma is perfect for this one!
  • Dutch Dare asked for bling/glitter - it's got my pretty blue rhinestones in each corner

My second card also covers a couple of challenges. I couldn't decide on this one whether I would use it vertically or horizontally, so this one specifically has no sentiment for that reason. (Unlike Emma, who I just wasn't sure how I'd use.) So I took two pictures so you could see it both horizontally and vertically.



  • Christian Paper Crafts Magazine had a color challenge of Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red and Pirouette pink.
  • Over at CCEE Stampers (another new challenge for me) they requested specialty papers. I have been using a lot of glittered cardstock lately, so I jumped right into this one.
  • 365 Cards asked for decorative edges, so I pulled out my Long Nestibility Rectangles and scalloped three sides for them.

So while these two cards are covering all those challenges, I need to go work on a couple of other things to show you...and don't forget that I still have BLOG CANDY open!! Go to THIS POST! You have until tomorrow....

And one more thing....there's a NEW CHALLENGE BLOG coming! Watch for it.....
