“Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone!” is the new challenge on the Sentimental Sundays blog. We would love to see you try something different than your usual style or type of projects. Don’t forget to include a sentiment. Please tell us how you stepped out of your comfort zone in your blog post.
For my project, I was inspired by a card created by my talented friend Maria of Crafty Cre8tions. You can see her card HERE. Look, I only have 1 layer on top of the base and the card is pretty clean and simple. No buttons, digis, Copics or stitching either. This card took me only about 15 minutes compared to my usual couple of hours per card. I could get used to this!
This pretty butterfly is from some wonderful blog candy that I won from Tereza Crump. You can see her blog HERE and her Etsy store HERE. I colored it using Tsukineko’s Fireworks mist and love the way it looks.
Today we attended the annual fund raiser for my daughter’s school. The PTO did a really great job. There was a silent auction with gift baskets put together by each class and donations from families and local businesses. They also had a mini carnival with tons of games and prizes for the kids, a really good face painter, those big, blow up jumpy houses and slides, a cake walk, snacks, drinks and sandwiches, a bake sale and a dunk tank where all the teachers and the school administrator took a turn on the hot (or should I say “wet”) seat. It was a good time!
I hope you will join the Sentimental Sundays team in our “Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone” challenge. Stop by the Sentimental Sundays blog to see how the rest of the DT is stepping outside their comfort zones.
