SBS29 Challenge - Think Green.

** This challenge is now closed. You can see who won HERE.

I am happy to host the March challenge for the Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers-29 (SBS29). I decided to pick a theme for the challenge. The theme is "Think Green". You can interpret it as you wish (green paper, St. Patrick's Day, recycling, or what ever else). The challenge will run from today through March 20th. I will announce the randomly drawn winner on Sunday, March 21st. I have some crafting goodies to send to the winner.

Although this challenge is specifically for SBS29, others may also enter.

Please use Mr.Linky to submit your entry by Saturday, March 20th.

I am part Irish and love the Irish culture, especially the music. Some of my ancestors migrated to the United States from County Limerick, Ireland in the late 1830's. Red hair ran in my mother's family (including her) but I ended up blond. My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon in Dublin. So, given all that and the fact that St. Patrick's day is coming up, I made this card.


It originally started out as a shamrock shaped card but I just couldn't make it work this evening and I wanted to get the challenge posted for my sisters. My husband was strongly lobbying for the sentiment to say "pog mo thoin" but I went for the safer option.

Have fun!


Supplies:
  • Image: Free coloring page from Elizabeth O. Dulemba
  • Papers & CS: Green is the Thing digital paper pack by Danielle Young Designs, image printed on Georgia Pacific CS, other black, orange, and green paper the manufacturer is unknown
  • Inks: None

Oh what a cutie.... and what a great card. I love the deep, dark color cardstock and the bright white. it really sets off the digi and ... I dunno, just pulls my eye. (Love white space, lo)

How many comments can one person leave on this blog? I'm up to three and make no promises to stop. But I'll try. I made the card, finally.
Humm, methinks that leprachaun has mischief up his sleeve. There's a certain glint in his eye!

Very cute card and definitely works for the Lucky Me challenge. So happy you could have some fun with Pile it On this week.

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
