1 Card-6 Challenges



I'm fighting tiredness this morning. It's the general living thing again. We've had storms, the neighbors are getting roofs, we're getting a fence, and all that goes along with dealing with all that. Nuff said----I tried to post this before midnight because one of the challenges this is for was
yesterday(Wed.) http://365cards.blogspot.com
all the other ones I'm on schedule for. My lighting is off in the evenings, these colors are: green, yellow, orange, brown, and aqua(not blue).
My friend Linda http://multicoloured-imagery.blogspot.com
teases because I say I'm not a puzzle girl and then I pick out cards to make that take some puzzling.
I've been trying to use the face stamp on the front of a card for awhile, but nothing seemed right. So when I started puzzling this card my supplies started speaking to me(I may be a little quirky).
Bonnie's http://craftiblog.wordpress.com tutorial is fantastic with great photos, and her sample card is absolutely beautiful. My card is not as elaborate as her's, but I'm pretty pleased with the outcome. Since my camera skills are somewhat lacking, the sayings on the inside of the card are: A Dream is a Wish the Heart Makes...Jill, Jill made a comment on http://titlechallenges.blogspot.com and I snagged it because it was perfect for my card--thank you Jill. The other one I found on http://www.quotegarden.com : There's a long, long trail a-winding into the land of my dreams. Stoddard King Jr.
Here are the 6 Challenges I think this card fits:
I hope all who visit my blog will go and check out all these sites---all the design teams and hostesses and site owners are so talented. It's a pleasure participating in their challenges.

Supplies: Tutorial for card blank is referenced above, The Paper Co.-Natural Fashion Colors Value Pack-Michael's, DaisyD's Beacon Hill 8x8 designer paper pad, Grafix-clear adhesive backed transparency, Stampin Up-aqua card stock, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, Sepia, CTMH-Z2160 Twilight, Stamps: Inkadinkado-97626 Patterned Bugs, Hampton Art-2139 Sm. Face Frame, EK Success flower punches,
Elmer's-copper leafing pen, small copper brads, glue dots.

I hope I've given credit where credit is due. I may have to take a couple of days off for the general living stuff, but I'll be back.
Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G
