And also what I was doing in the meanwhile when I spaced my own weekly color challenge, lol. Cait's emergency room visit wasn't the only thing that had me forgetting the color challenge this week for Monday. There is also a super fun color challenge going on the Hanna forums on SCS for the new Hanna release that I thought I'd play along in. And I also had my own little 'in the back of my mind' challenges to use up some of the scraps that have been laying out for the past couple weeks and doing something with a pretty flower image that Linda sent me, but that I couldn't figure out what to do with. But first let me put up officially the color challenge which was inspired by the card in the previous post that I had made Monday night ^_~. Only three colors this week, feel free to add another color if you like and please don't forget to email a link to your card so I can post it here :D And have fun!
Laurel's Sassy Ipodabella Card
Sparkle's Yummilicious Watermelon Card
Sue's Sweet Mother's Day Card
Jenn's Lovely Thinking of You Card
My Sample :
I added in some bamboo as well. Papers and stickease from BFF paper pack and also a sheet of retired Cozy B&T. Lots of embellies just here and there, I think everything on here is CTMH. I love these close ups of Caitie and her messy face and journaled about how she always manages to look cute whether she's dirty or clean, her hair done up or still crazy.
And here's my card for the Hanna challenge. I was pretty obsessed with doing this one, not only because you can possibly win a free set, but mostly because I hadn't played with my Hannas in a long while. This Hanna is my favorite! I really like how this card came out too, it's the first time I haven't pieced her outfit with this stamp set. CTMH CS used, the colors are Blush, Holiday Red, Ocean, and Breeze. The challenge was to use three colors (I forget the SU names), and Blush and Holiday Red (or Cranberry, it looked pretty close in the pics) fit pretty perfect but the blue seemed right inbetween breeze and ocean so I just put them both. Spot on Backgrounds used for the background red on blush and Friendship Wordpuzzle for the flower center. The blue flower is by doodlebug, the pink by prima and the ribbon by CTMH. Hanna colored with CTMH markers and highlighted with the white gel pen.
Here's the card I made with the image Linda sent me while she was my SS. I thought it was so pretty but really hadn't a clue what to do with it for the longest time. So I decided to just start by coloring it. Colors were Spring Iris, Lilac Mist, Amethyst, Kiwi, and Key Lime. Then the rest just seemed to fall together. It made a pretty large card, 6x6, but also gave me a chance to use the Spring Beauty Mother's Day sentiment which is pretty long itself. Everything but the image is CTMH.
And this one was to use the scraps that have been sitting in my cubby slot that I use to hold my stamp scrubber and foam pad. They kept getting in the way so I finally decided to just use them up. I'm not quite feeling it with this card, probably because it was made after my mojo was already used up on the others, but at least the scraps got used and it's fairly cute ^_~. Besides, I can always use more thank you cards. So these three cards were what I was up to before I got Sparkle's email and went 'oops!'. Not an hour later I also got one from Jena warning me of the search party on the CTMH forums for the color challenge, lol. And here I thought my color challenges weren't really a big deal!
