June Challenge

It's the last day of June and this card has been on the "to do" list all month. Why I wait until the last minute, I do not know! I used a little of everything from the challenge. I deliberately did an uneven stitch around the edge of the card, cut the scalloped squares with a Nestability die, and added something different to each square. The green and orange also come from the challenge colors. I colored the flower and the button twine with my Copic markers. I can't get Typepad to work tonight, but eventually I'll get this on my blog as well. Thanks for the challenge, Karen! It was a good one.


Cardstock: Kraft (PTI); patterned paper: A Muse; brads, flower, & buttons from stash; butterfly punch (Martha Stewart); sentiment: Friendship Jar (PTI)

Heads Up! Discontinuing Inks!

You might want to reconsider if you're thinking of getting ink.  Nichole just stated in her blog that they discontinued the inks with their current manufacturer.  Exactly what that means, I'm not sure (what kind of ink will end up with, the colors, etc.).  Now I'm stuck - I have all the new inks & reinkers except for two (which will never come to fruition now).

Pixies Challenge #2!

Since I'm not a quilter and I struggle w/ mixing all kinds of patterns together, I went for the colors.

I LOVE brown, green & orange together! And I made my first CAS card - yay! I kept wanting to add more stuff to it, so it was a struggle.

June Pixie Challenge

I really love inspiration challenges. Hopefully you'll enjoy this one as well. I found this awesome set of Fat Quarters that I'd like you to use as inspiration. You can use just the colors, or pick a pattern, or just go with the idea of sewing - no rules!

What drew me to this image was the colors. Probably because my box containing the Chartreuse paper had just arrived :) But they feel very summer to me as well.

I loved the colors but also used the layout and theme to create my card. You can read more blah-blah-blah about the card on my blog.

Now it is your turn!
