It has been a while since I have played with any of the sketch challenges lately. So, I sat down this afternoon and checked out the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge and Color Me Monday on Jeanette Lynton's blog. Heart 2 Heart Challenges and Papercraft Star are also holding challenges and my card fit in to BOTH of those as well. Heart 2 Heart Challenges is having an embossing challenge while Papercraft Star is accepting Thank You submissions. So what the heck? I entered this little owl in the 3 that I could!
I REALLY liked the sketch and loved the colors that Jeanette picked for this week. I have yet to get out all of the NEW colors that were introduced in the Autumn/Winter 2010 Idea Book and thought it would be fun to play with them.
If you would like to play along with the sketch challenge, click on the Mojo Monday banner on my sideline. The colors for the Color Me Monday were Gypsy, Pear, Lagoon and Cotton Candy. I ended up using just the Pear and Lagoon on my card, so may end up playing a bit more with the other colors in the challenge.
Paper: ALL CARDSTOCK Lagoon, Pear, Black and White Daisy (no wonder it is so heavy!)
Stamps: Say it in Style, Hot Diggity
Inks: Black, Pear and Lagoon
Embellishments: Lagoon Sparkles (blue and green sparkles assortment) Black Ribbon, Lagoon Mini Medley Accents and Black Hemp.
Tools: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and Nestabilities, 3/4 Circle SU! Punch
Thanks for stopping by!!
Hope this has inspired you to play along with some of the challenges out there! It is a lot of fun and helps stretch your creativity a bit!
Happy Scrapping and Stamping!

Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, Heart 2 Heart,Papercraft Star and Color Me Monday
Life has a way of throwing us curveballs when we least expect it. What we do and how we react to those curveballs, is up to us. Who would have thought that at the age of 45 I would be starting my life over, reinventing myself and finally figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Well, ALMOST! lol I want to play with ink, paper and ribbon and share Stampin' Up's wonderful products and opportunities with you!! I am THRILLED to be part of this company and am looking forward to seeing where the wind takes me. Happy Stamping!!
