Happy Wednesday!

I am so sorry that I didn't post yesterday - I gave 100% of my attention... well, OK, 96% of my attention to my children and a friend came over yesterday. Besides, I had to formulate a plan on how many challenges can I pack into one card. I managed 4 - there's this one gal that Joni has told me about that has managed 9... NINE challenges in one card. Amazing!!

Here's my measly 4.

Challenge #1 Mojo Monday... the sketch. Great sketch!!

Challenge #2 My Grafico... It's Fruity. I found the pear image on a homeschool site for fruit coloring pages. It was created a bit cockeyed so I printed it twice, cut it out and then adhered to a base (one directly on, the other with a pop dot). I colored the images with Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. I'm rather proud of myself, they almost look real.

Challenge #3 The Pink Elephant... Red, Light Blue, Darker Blue. My colors are Bordering Blue and Night of Navy and the red came from the Martha Stewart paper pack. I had meant to use the design side and then the coordinating plain side, but I ended up with both elements being the design side. It worked!

Challenge #4 Digital Tuesday... 1-2-3 Challenge (1 digi image, 2 dp, 3 embellishments). OK the images are digi-images, there are 2 pieces of dp used and just in case that doesn't count, I did Cuttlebug my background which in my mind is home-made dp. The embellishments are 1 bow and 2 brads. One of the brads is sorta hidden by the bow, but it's there!


See how many challenges you can fit into one - maybe you'll want to include my sketch that is currently posted on Tuesday Morning Sketches. Thanks for stopping by today!
