Saturday's challenge at Unscripted Sketches was a piggyback challenge -- use the color pink as the main color on the card created using sketch #77 to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here is my card which I will be sending to a cousin who is recovering from major surgery.
Unscripted Sketches also had a blog hop for Breast Cancer Awareness this weekend. There were lots of great projects created by the participants.
The current challenge at Delightful Challenges is a color challenge using the colors red, green and white. I don't normally use stickers but a couple of months ago I happened upon a sale at Michaels of a value pak of Jolee dimensional stickers. The price was too good to pass up so I bought a pak for myself and one for my daughter. There are some really great Christmas stickers in the pak and I decided to use a couple for this challenge. This card was super quick and easy to make but I really like the way it turned out.
I started my Saturday off by doing the Think Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Blog Hop. Lots of great projects and some super blog candy up for grabs. The hop lasts thru Monday so hop on over and check it out here.
When I finished the blog hop, I finally had my inspiration for the Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge. This week's challenge is to use the pointed hand cut from the Graphically Speaking cartridge. I don't have this cartridge so I used the pointed hand cut on Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge to make a Think Pink card.
Challenge #45 at Cricut Cardz Challenge is to make a Thanksgiving card using any cartridge and any colors. I combined this challenge with sketch #76 at Unscripted Sketches. I used the Create a Critter cartridge for the turkey.
This is my creative Saturday. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
This past week is the first time that I have visited Cricut Cardz Challenge. The weekly challenge is to make s-fold or z-fold card for Halloween using any cartridge and colors. I have never tried making a card using one of these folds so I was definitely working outside my comfort zone when I started working on my card. The weekly challenge at Delightful Challenges is a color challenge using purple, green, and black. Since these colors lend themselves to Halloween I decided to combine the two challenges.
I don't have any Halloween paper so I used cardstock which has a very light texture to it from a Paper Studio paper pad. I then embossed using two different Cuttlebug embossing folders. I used the Happy Haunting cartridge for the ghost, pumpkins and sentiment.
I am pleased with the way the card turned out so maybe I'll try some more folds like this.
