Fun In the Sun

Friday, April 30, 2010

I'm a teacher and we just finished a long week of state testing. My students are tired and I am tired and sooooo ready for summer.

Here's my latest and greatest card that helps me and my students look forward to "Fun In The Sun".

I love challenge blogs and a friend of mine told me about three design teams that are very creative. I checked out their blogs this week and love their work. I entered this card in both of their challenges.

The first is Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combos (SPCC). They host great challenges each week that call for you to use particular colors. This type of challenge is a first for me but it was a lot of fun coming up with something creative and still stay within the color guidelines.

For this card I used:
♥ Bazzill carstock
♥ K & Company stickers
♥ K & Company Real Wood Die Cuts
♥ American Crafts Ribbon

I think the real wood die cuts really add dimension and a touch of flair to your projects. I bought several of these die cuts and can't wait to use them on more projects.

The next  is Crafty Angels. They host challenges each week as well. Their design team also does amazing work. This week you were to make a project with some aspect of "Summer". I think this "Fun in the Sun" card qualifies for this contest as well.

And the design team over at Easy Craft Projects is hosting a challenge simply called "Orange". You are to create a project to bring in some sunshine this week. I think my card also qualifies for this fun challenge.

Stay tuned tomorrow for projects that help celebrate "National Scrapbook Day"!

Have a Creative Weekend!
