Hope you had a GREAT weekend!
Don't you just "love 'em"?
Weekends... I do!
First, will post the card projects that I was able to complete over the weekend -
This CONGRATULATION/STAR card came out awesome! Can use this card asap - for a special young man headed to STATE!
Used a neutral color scheme - using up scraps of neutral prints, browns and red punched stars, Stampin' Up' stamps - star for the focal (added glitter embossing), also the small star and "Congratulations" in Chocolate Chip ink. Additional ribbon, hemp twine and button complete this card, made for a STAR!
This card was entered in the following challenges this week:
Casual Friday Challenge this week is to design something in your project that is "Over the Edge". This is CFC#27. My project has both stars and ribbon going over the edge of the project- check out the entries here
Our Creative Corner challenge this week is to create a card project that is "Masculine" - using non-traditional colors along w/neutrals! My non-traditonal color is red and my neutrals are the base & embellishments of the card project. You can check out the entries for this challenge here.
At Freshly Made Sketches - the challenge this week is a sketch by Tui - sketch #9. My card project uses this sketch the standard way - no twist or turns this week! You can check out all the other cards using this sketch at this challenge here.
At I Brake For Challenges, their challenge for the next two weeks is to make a card using IBFCC#13 -NO WHITE! My card starts with a craft card base and envie - along with a neutral and brown color scheme - NO WHITE! You can check out all the NON-WHITE card projects here at this challenge.
Are you getting into the Christmas Spirit yet? It'll be here before you know it...
These Christmas Cards were made alike - just using different color schemes! One traditional red, white and green; and the other all in blue hues!
This card project features a cut-out "dangle" focal point - used card stock, designer paper, white card & envie, ribbon, button and brads - including the "Believe" GKD stamp for the Let It Snow set and Stampin Up's center white embossed stamp of a snowman! Also added a Snowflake embossing folder for the background - and (of course) glitter! The Blue Christmas card was entered in Tina's pick for the StampTV's "Free For All Friday" challenge here - all BLUE CHRISTMAS cards!
The traditional colored Christmas card was entered in the
Hand Stamped Sentiment Color Challenge this week - challenge #91 - HSSCC91. You can check out the entries here at this challenge here.
Those were the cards that I was able to complete this weekend.
Along with making cards - Saturday was the 4-H District Food Show - we traveled about a hour away to compete. Both boys did very well! Very proud of them - Alex made a "Beef and Spinach Roll-Up Lasagna" for the main dish in the Senior level and Aric made a "Italian Wedding Soup" for the main dish in the Intermediate level. I will post their recipes later this week, if you are interested! Both boys placed 2nd in their division. This was the first year that both boys competed in a new age division -very proud of them! Here's also a group picture of all the Childress County 4-Hers who participated this year at District. Our goal NEXT YEAR is 1st... fingers crossed! LOL!
Thanks for stopping by, wishing you a wonderful week ahead! Remember to hug the ones you love the most! Until the next time...
