So Many FUN Challenges

Some weeks there are so many fun challenges that I just have to play!  Today, I saw Curtain Call with "smiten".  In the challenge, the team used geletos.  Well, I just happen to have some brand new, still in the package, geletos.  I had to play! This also qualifies me for Shopping Our Stash; something new. I used, and flipped the fabulous sketch from Seize the Sketch.

Geletos are pretty awesome!  Draw, and wet with a water brush.  I like the texture I saw, so I didn't completely blend the colors smooth.  I used a sentiment from Inspired By Stamping's new release, Vintage Roses.  Can you tell I didn't let the Glossy Accents dry?  LOL I have no patience at all...



--- see the dripping?















I also wanted to challenge myself with a little harder sketch. I had noticed that I know a few of the new DT and wanted to say CONGRATS [hey Rose, Olga and Stacey] and play along over at Cardabilities. I have never played in their sketch challenge before, but I sure will be playing again! How fun was this sketch!

 I used a ton of dies, and a computer generated sentiment to make this card.  This is for my boss of the last 4 years and co-worker of 6.  I am going to miss her more than she even realizes!  I do not like change at the job at all, and this will be a devastating loss since she is an amazing boss!
  
Anyway, I thought Cardabilities was still running a DT call through the 10th, but apparently I am wrong since the new team was announced today. Rats!  [Maybe next time] I have to say I love the sketches and the challenge they create.


That's it for me.  I'll be back tomorrow with some more challenges.  I'm telling ya - amazing stuff out here in blogland starting 2014!



Thanks for stopping by~
