Studio Calico Sunday Sketch

Although I've been a Studio Calico kit subscriber for several months, I really haven't participated in the community. Of course, I've been lurking for months but it's always hard to jump into a new scrappy place. I recently met April (owner of SC) at CKC in Nashville and she encouraged me to get on board. So here I am, taking baby steps to get involved... my first challenge.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my take:

Every time I look at this little note, I laugh! At least she was kind enough to warn us that she licked the apples! lol This is such a classic example of Paige's personality; a note I'll always cherish!

Do you like to participate in challenges? If so, come & join in on the fun here. If you're not familiar with their kits, you must check them out!

Have a wonderful weekend!

p.s. I'm thinking of all the people that may be affected by Hurricane Irene this weekend... hoping and praying for your safety.

10 Creative Days

I'm currently participating in For the Luv of Art's Card-A-Palooza 15 day challenge. So for today's 10 Things post, I'm posting the 10 cards I have made so far. The object of this challenge (besides creating and having fun) is to have a supply of cards ready to use at a moments notice. Therefore, we are not supposed to add the sentiment until we use the card.

Let me say, I am not a card maker by nature (layouts are my fave), but I have truly enjoyed whipping up these miniature creations. The following is the list of challenges and my take on them:

Challenge #1. Use a die cut

Challenge #2. Monochromatic color scheme

Challenge #3. Patterned paper only

Challenge #4. Window card

Challenge #5. Primary Colors

Challenge #6. Mini cards

Challenge #7. Cards that looks like a gift

Challenge #8. scraplift

Challenge #9. use rub-ons

Bonus challenge: Hybrid card using Norma Kennedy's "Joy" digi kit

I guess I can officially say that I am a card maker now! If you'd like to participate in Card-A-Palooza, click here. There are prizes involved, of course!
