I decided that I needed not only some stress relief to help clear my head but I also had to just on the bandwagon for blog challenges.
This is going to help me not only create more cards, but give me lots of goodies to post onto this blog as that is one of my goals to complete in my day zero challenge.
I have been looking at 'witch' to join for the past couple weeks. I have found two to get my started.
PricillaStyles: Midnight Madness
"Just Us Girls Challenge"
Both Challenges had a deadline of today - and I wanted to do both. So, I combined the challenges. For PricillaStyles we were to use this layout:
And for the JUG Challenge we were to paper piece and the optional use of the color pink!
And then I wanted to do a Halloween Card. So I dug out the stamps - This sent is retired from TAC - I have loved it since I first saw it and can't seem to part with it - even with all the other new Halloween sets out there. Since pink is not a traditional Halloween color I thought it was going to be a problem - but for the most part I think it turned out okay. Combining these challenges made it a little difficult for me since I am new to this challenge thing - but after the time I put into it - I am happy with out it turned out. The witches hat and dress, and the cats hat and dress are all paper pieced.
In the photo below you are able to see a little more of the paper piecing detail work.
The inside sentiment is below - I got out the little spider stamp and stamped him on there as well. I think this card with go to school with Madelyn for her teacher!
