Fun Challenges!

I have to laugh-- I have some DT work that really needs to be done.  Not.in.the.mood.  Why is that, I don't get it. -- or I know I just want to play today - and I sure did! :)

I joined in the Fusion; Peacock Challenge.  I just fell in love with the inspiration photo.

And, the sketch was pretty cool too.   I used Inka Gold to add the background gold in.  It really is a fun product, that I don't use enough!  I also used Avery Elle Brushed for my sentiment.


 I went on to play in As You See It #104.  They are having an assortment challenge.  It was really fun building a card with the elements.

I used Paper Smooches Cyber Cafe set, and Blue Bonnet Diva Stripe twine from Whisker Graphics.

I absolutely love the colours chosen - and the tea cup card is fab! Totally with you on just wanting to play sometimes rather than do what you need to do craft wise! xx

Both are gorgeous, Vicki! I love your use of both the Fusion sketch and inspiration photo- your card is perfect!

Both cards are so well done and you certainly captured the colors perfectly too. Glad you got time to play a bit. We all need that and I know I did my share this week. I loved being on a design team but I find not doing one is a great asset too. I can create at my own pace and heart's content.

PRETTY PRETTY Vicki!! Glad you decided to create for your self today. We all need that from time to time!

As a coffee-lover, this is a card I can appreciate! I love the blue/green ombre effect: such divine colours! And a clever knot as well. Just lovely, Vicki.

Ooooh! I love that knot! And great work on the ombre effect! Gotta love the sentiment, too! Thanks for playing along this week with As You See It Challenges!

A gal's gotta play sometimes, right? Bet that procrastinating on your 'assignments' lead to more inspiration, too. Two charmers here. The humming bird is dapper; the coffee cup delightful. Love that sentiment!
