When I started combining a few of the challenges I wanted to enter,
I knew I needed to find some sort of whimisical quote about shopping.
I found this one on the internet by Swoosie Kurtz and thought it was
I typed in into a Word program and printed it out on
Mustard Cardstock then used my Grand Calibur and a
die from the
A2 Matting Basics B from
set I have to cut it out.
The card colors were used for The Play Date Cafe
(A Study in Beauty - PDCC165) @
They suggested Plum, Mustard & Rose for their colors.
I'm really liking how
it makes it look.
I'm going to make a mental note to remember this combination.
Usually my favorites are white, silver and blues but I'm liking this so much I'm going to enter it in Love to Create Challenge #49 - Share Your 3 Favorite Colors @ http://lovetocreatechallenge.blogspot.ca/2013/01/challenge-49-share-your-3-favorite.html
The layout was from The Deconstructed Sketch #85 @
Here's a copy of their Sketch it you want to join in on the fun.
Alicia's Challenge #2 - Use Your Favorite Crafty Item (http://aliciaschallenge.blogspot.com/2013/01/challenge-2.html)
inspired me to purchase one of her Digi's from her store @
Alicia's Little Shop
I really wanted to enter her challenge to have a chance at the
10 Copic Markers she is giving away.
I don't have the first one -
so I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed
that I get to try them soon!
(How's that for positive thinking?)
This is only my second time using a digi and
I use 20 year old colored pencils,
I'm thinking I can use plenty of practice, though.
I'm entering the Design Team Call and the
Digi challenge from Sweet N Sassy Stamps
Anything Digital #SNSDC88 @
(we can only hope)!
You know how you have
'that' designer paper that you won't use because you are
"saving" it for that special project -
well today I decided I needed to
start using some of the paper I've been collecting.
It also helped me to be able to enter
Bugaboo Stamps Catch The Bug January Bingo Challenge (http://catchthebugblog.blogspot.com/2013/01/januarybingo-challenge.html).
I went straight across the top of the board with
Designer Paper, Sentiment and Pearls.
I have never owned Washi Tape
(and quite honestly had to look it up to see what it was -
yes I'm new at this) -
but when I saw that I was allowed to
"make" my own for this challenge at
Simon Says Stamp -
immediately I used the
pink and white polka-dots in lieu of my tape.
I think it looks like many of the cards which actually use it
(but it is super easy to use though, and will need to check it out)
Because of the pearls and bling,

I didn't have any to match this card so I colored my own.
The shoes and the purse on the digi allow me to submit this card to
