Take Three!

I was actually able to make today's card for three different challenges.


I started out by following the sketch at Mojo Monday. I'm pretty proud of myself - I didn't flip it on it's side OR upside down! I simply followed the sketch (new concept for this rebel!!!).



Loretta Lock, the August Host over at Our Creative Corner, has created a fun color challenge for us. The theme is: "When I am old, I shall wear purple". I think this card definitely qualifies as a shade of purple!!!





Last, but certainly not least, Day 158 at 365 Cards was "What's your sign?" day. We were to create a sign on our cards.


No pixies were injured in the making of this card as I paper pieced only the clothing!

Stamp: CC Designs Swiss Pixies "Heidi" (from All That Scraps), Ink: Versafine, Black, Tombow Markers, Sharpie Marker, EK Success Buckle Punch, Nestabilities Circle Dies.



Well, dear friends, I am off to paint a wall, and hopefully stimulate some very weary brain cells! Today's 365 challenge is to create an Indoors scene. As I have absolutely zero inside stamps, I am going to have to really think about this one!!! Lol....I have a few ideas floating around... can you say 'freehand'???



Have a great Thursday!

Well, it is certainly purple! I'm not sure no pixies were hurt though....look at those splits! I'd be hurting! LOL.

Cute card. She reminds me of a little catholic school girl in the paper pieced outfit.

Adorable card. I like the paper piecing. You should join in on my weekly challenges where a set of Nestabilities is given away.

Oh, I just love those CC Design images... they are too sweet! Great job with the paper piecing. That is definitely a shade of purple! Lavender, to be exact. Yummy!
