Today is ... Tuesday!

... and lookee here, I caught up :) Only two challenges today as there was no KwernerDesign Colour Inspiration, I did think of finding another somewhere, but I had fun making the two, my kids are obviously fairly observant they wanted to know where the third card was! LOL

So just Splitcoast Sketch and Colour Challenges this week. I got out my Tart and Tangy stampset this time, a very popular one that I have to admit I hadn't used yet!

First up was the SCS Colour Challenge 184 (remember I got my weeks wrong!) The colours were Basic Grey, Always Artichoke and Real Red.
Of course, with Artichoke and Red - it had to be the strawberries! I did a lot "more" with this card than I normally would, obviously I had more time than normal ;) ... I used rub-ons which I've had for a while, but you know, once you use them, they are gone so I have trouble making myself use them - but lately have decided I need to, no point in buying things and just admiring them in their packets!! I like the way this turned out - busier than my usual, but a lot of fun to put together :)

Cardstock: Always Artichoke, Basic Grey, Real Red
Others: Stampin' Write Markers, Rub-Ons, Half Pearls from Pretties set, 11/4" punch, Scallop punch, white gel pen, corner rounder punch, snail, dimensionals, Summer Picnic DSP

Then the sketch challenge - SCS Sketch Challenge 195

I picked out the cherry paper from the Summer Picnic DSP for this and worked from there - pretty self-explanatory I think. I liked this one too!

Cardstock: Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Real Red
Extras: Stampin' Write Markers, Bashful Blue Ribbon, Rub-Ons, Summer Picnic DSP, 11/38" punch, scallop punch, snail, dimensionals

I also started another project over the weekend, and carried on with it yesterday - I'm going to have to ignore it screaming at me to be finished while I work on workshops over the next couple of days, but it's looking really good - I'm looking forward to showing it off ...

Today, my 12yo personal trainer is nagging at me to do that walk I was supposed to do yesterday (making cards is SO much more fun), so the two girls are going to hop on their bikes and come along too - lets hope that horrible rain holds off!
