"Time" for a bunch of challenges

Two posts today so be sure to scroll down!


Hi!  First I must tell you that this card is way out of my comfort zone but I'm commited to learn and grow so I just dove in.  I began with this sketch challenge from Posh Designs Scrapbook Store and then went looking for more inspiration.

The second challenge I found is the Stamping Sisters in Christ Challenge, SSCC27, based on Esther 4:14 to show "time".  I loved the Beth Moore study of Esther so I really wanted to do this one.

I found a couple of other challenges on SCS to use lace (WT259) and the new Free for All Challenges(F4A1) to use texture, patterned paper, and a color you don't normally use.  My rarely used color is Really Rust.  I bet its been years since I pulled that one out.

I flipped the sentiment panel, did alot of distressing and sponging and cluttered it up really good with embellishments.   I just love this sure and enlarge the photo so you can read it.

A Life Filled with Cupcakes is a Good Life, So... Pig Out!

I am sad to report that due to circumstances beyond her control, Judy of Digital-Ink Co., is closing the doors to the store.  She will be opening her own stand alone store soon so stay tuned for more information.

I was assigned to Judy for the next challenge, "Anything Goes".  I paired her image, "Pig Out" with some templates from The Cutting Cafe.  You know how much I love cupcakes! (See my posts here for recipes and photos).  I chose the Cupcake Box and one of her awesome new releases All Occasion Tag Set.  These tags fit the SU tag punch.  How cool is that?!  I wanted this to be suitable for boys but I think a girl might like the polka dotted pig too.
I used the Easel Card design from SplitcoastStampers and The Cutting Cafe's All About Cupcakes for my card sentiment.

Have you ever seen such pure bliss?  Um, that is unless, it's my face diving into that cupcake!

Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate your comments and if you're new, come follow along with me!  You never know what will happen on the playground.
