Pals Paper Arts Challenge No. 158

For this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge, we’re using Pool Party, Summer Starfruit and Lucky Limeade (or similar colors). I wasn’t too sure how I liked these colors together initially, but I think they blended really well with my kraft cardstock base.

I’d love to see, how you combine these colors in your projects.

Happy Crafting!

Friday Mashup Challenge No. 107

It’s a Sun Shiny Day!!!

This week at the Friday Mashup, Amanda Corbet is hosting “It’s a Sun Shiny Day!!!”. Makes me want to hum that song from the Brady Bunch…now try getting that one out of your head today. 🙂 Well for this challenge I looked and I looked, but I didn’t have anything that I could equate to the sun, until I came across my Sun Ripened II stamp set and saw that lemon branch. Lemons totally remind me of summer.  They are probably one of my all time favorite fruits, and bring back great memories from my childhood.

The challenge guidelines this week are as follows:

1. Create a project showcasing “Sunshine”.
2. Create an “Easel card” project.
3. Or Mash it Up and create an “Easel Card project with some Sunshine”.

Below is my take on the challenge, and I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Happy Crafting!
