Challenge entries

 This morning I've been working hard on all my layouts as well as cards.  and this is going to be a quick post because I have meetings as well as school work that needs to be done.  so to start off with here's a list of challenges these are going into:

Halloween Card:
I spy sketches
CardzTv  Happy Holidays~choose one
Little Scrap pieces

Ice Cream cone card:
A Homespun Affair color challenge

Big Win ball Card:
Stuck on U die cut challenge

Yellowstone scrapbook page:
Stuck on U sketch challenge
This Halloween card uses printable pattern paper from spooky fun printable kit from... oh poo I forgot the web site.  i'll update this with the web address after my meetings.

Okay its from the Printable Cottage.  the sketch is from Ispy sketches.

this ice cream cone card is for A homespun affair and uses the three designated colors: orchid, mint & granite.  the stamp is from Studio G and the ink is from Color Box.  the Heart paper clip is from a kit that my sister got me for my birthday 7 years ago so I don't remember the name of the kit; I do remember that it came in a suitcase type box that now graces my craft room.

My Big Win card, for the Stuck on U die cut challenge is made from scrap paper I had on hand and a free file from the silhouette online store (baseball). I never played a sport really but my husband loves playing ball.  The face on the ball is a free dingbat font from http://www.dafont.com/ & if you want instructions on how to do what I did and add a face to basically anything, head on over to Jin at under a cherry tree:  http://underacherrytree.blogspot.com/2012/09/make-your-own-happy-everything.html
 She has all the directions and links for you there.  The Big Win saying is actually rub ons I got from my sister in law from a few lots she'd won. (she and her hubby sell items on line.  they'll go to auctions buy bulk lots and sometimes they have random things in them)  She isn't a scrap booking type of girl so she gives me the goods she comes across.

This Yellowstone page is from my summer camping trip in Yellowstone with my family.  The title is from the silhouette online store, the paper background is from My mind's eye, Life stories collection, "Authorized Report" Paper.  the stamps were my mother in laws and in her "Nature" bin of her craft room.  the pictures are all from Yellowstone.

Enjoy... Happy Crafting!
