Some challenges...

I love finding time to play in challenges!  Today I found a bunch I liked; Freshly Made Sketch 26, Create with Connie & Mary  193; Peach, Limeade, Pool Party, and CAS-ual Fridays; a pattern, image and sentiment.


I really do love Freshly Made Sketches - very clean and simple and that equals a fast card for me to create.  I also like the fact that over at Connie and Mary's you must use Stampin Up Products.  This forces me to use my [much dusty] SU stamps!  I used Enjoy Every Moment for the main sentiment, and my For You is SU, but really, I have no clue what it is from~  (I have had it forevah!)
CAS-ual Friday's challenge was a pattern (diamond bg from SU), sentiment, and image.  My tag is my image, which I found as a free download.  In hindsight, this might be a shape rather than an image -- whoops. :)  Hopefully, my card still qualifies. Hi CAS Girls ;)




I adored the sketch over at Paper Pals Arts and The Play Date Cafe had one of my favorite color combos; Teal, Limeade, Orange and Jeans. When I put both of these together,along with the fence die from My Favorite Things, it screamed the fun gnome image from Gnome One Like You from Gina K Designs.  Isn't he just so cute!  hee hee.  Oh yeah, do you like the way I got the "jean" color on my card - yep his pants! :)

That's it for me today.  Thanks all you challenge sites for having some fabulous challenges~

Thanks for stopping by~
