I'm sorry to say that I may soon be standing up and saying "My name is Katie and I'm a Challenge-aholic". Every day I spend some time going through peoples blogs and if I see a new challenge that's not in my journal then I get all excited and scribble it down. And when it comes to creating a card I sit down at my screen clicking from page to page finding things that work together.
This morning I had time to do a little playing and somehow (with encouragement from my daughter) I managed to find 12, yes 12, challenges to combine! LOL
So here comes mr reason for needing a 12 step program!
Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Pile It On - Mostly Orange ( I had to manipulate and color over the yellow flowers with an orange Copic)
Our Creative Companion - A triple play, 3 embellishments from a list and I chose Ribbon, Buttons and Brads
Paperplay - Your favorite nibble. I chose a Terry's Chocolate Orange as Christmas wouldn't be the same without it.
PollyCraft - Arrows (and I used a Pollycraft image although you don't need to)
My Time To Craft - A Bird in the Hand
Secret Saturday Crafter - Spots and Stripes, I used spotty buttons and paper and stripy brads.
ABC - W is for Window
Belli - Texture, I embossed the background and used different ribbons for more "feel"
The Cuttlebug Spot - The Inside Counts (easy for me as I always finish the inside)
Daring Cardmakers - Away with the Fairies
Tuesday Taggers - more Texture
I used a cute Twiddly Wings from Polly Craft Designs and colored her with my Copic's. I cut the window with a Nestie and made a frame with the next size up Nestie. I embossed the yellow paper with my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. The brads and buttons are Paper Studio and the dp are K & Co. The arrow is a chipboard one that I colored with my Copic to match (and thanks to Georgia who searched through a drawer to find the last one left of these arrows)
Hopefully you can see through the "window" to the image.
I added ribbon across both sides of the inside as I couldn't do much to the window side.
In case you couldn't see Twiddly closely I added another shot of her.
Anyway my fingers hurt from all the links so I'm signing off right now!
Have a great Sunday!
