VCD Group Challenge on PCP/Truly Scrumptious

Over at the PCP VCD group the lovely Jana has given us a challenge to make a Back to School themed project, guess what I had made this cute little set last night that works perfectly. Purse is a small composition notebook that I made using the tutorial at Inking Idaho. Also the challenge on Truly Scrumptious was to make anything but a card, so I thing this cute lil' purse qualifies for that too!

Mutiple challenge card

This card is another cutie using the Aud image and I used the sketch from The Pink Elephant. What a fun sketch and by adding a little bling, this card also works for Rubbernecker's Wacky Wednesday challenge. The challenge over at ABC Challenge was to use C-circles on your project, so my background paper I think qaulifies me for that one-LOL!!!

SCS Sketch #243

Here is my card for the SCS #243 challenge. I again used the super cute Victoria Case Designs Aud image that I just got from SCACD this week (Susana has super fast shipping too). Papers are from Breezy Design (formerly TLC), sentiment is one of those $1 Studio G's, and inks are Cat's Eyes-Wisteria/Robin's Egg. I added a little bling and some ribbon and Ta Da- Super cute card!

Color Dare #31 w/ TDS Winter Lani

Here is a card I made for Color Dare and image I used is Winter Lani from The Digi Shack. I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday with a couple changes. The sentiment is another of those $1 Sudio G stamps and papers are CTMH and DCWV.

TDSC020-Color Combo Challenge

It's Thursday which means another fun challenge over atThe Digi Shack. This week's challenge is a color combo-chocolate, caramel, bronze, and teal. I used an older image Ruff Day for my card, I tried to make dog look a little grimy so looked like he had one of those days.

Also Toni has extended last week's challenge until September 1st, so hurry for chance to win one of her awesome handbags. Check out details here.
