Bugaboo Stamps & Catch the Bug: 02/26/2011

Isn't it funny how you pull out a sheet of designer paper with something very definite in mind but end up with something else entirely? I had every intention of doing the whole Erin go bragh thing, but every single time that I looked at this paisley print the soundtrack in my head would play Mellow Yellow instead of Riverdance (which is really rather ridiculous when you consider that there's a distinct absence of yellow on the page, but I digress). So, would you buy into an Irish hippie chick? ;)

The Challenge: Make a project using the color green (mainly) and the sketch above and post a link to it on Bugaboo Stamps' challenge blog, Catch the Bug, by 03/05/2011 at 7:00 AM EST to be entered in a random drawing for three digi prize packs - seven, four, or two digital images!

Supplies: Bugaboo Stamps image, Stampin' Up! card stock, The Paper Company card stock, Mara-Mi designer paper, Copic markers, Prismacolor markers, ??? ribbon, Making Memories embellishments, Dress It Up embellishments, The Memory Box embellishments.

The Crafty Hos: Photo Challenge

It's Gloves and Masks,
And Hills and Trees.
It's Cold and Snow,
And Poles and Skis.

Or so they say. . .I've never been snow-skiing before. . .darnit. . .:(

Whether you have or you haven't, why don't you consider joining The Crafty Hos for a challenge this lazy-long-holiday-weekend Sunday?

PS. Please forgive the blurriness - He was just skiing downhill so fast that I couldn't get a clear shot. . .;)

PSS. My project meets the guidelines for our photo challenge and our sketch challenge (sort of. . .;), but makes use of the supplies that Tammy sent for Joy's Different Kind of Card Kit Swap on SCS. How 'bout them apples? ;)

Supplies: Amuse Art Stamps image, Stampin' Up! card stock, ??? designer paper, Copic markers, Prismacolor markers, ??? ribbon, A Muse Art Stamps sentiment.
