This week's suggested colors are ...
My card will go to Send a Smile 4 Kids at the end of the month with  all I have ready at that time for hospitalized kids.  Here's what I did using the eucalyptus paper with slate circles printed on it I applied rose colored silk flower in the centers.  Then glitter hearts in the center of the flowers.  I think I'll put "You're Awesome" on the tag in upper right.

At Send a Smile 4 Kids the theme is Anything Goes 4 Kids Challenge!

My card uses a free digie and colored by marker on a tag.  I'll be sending the card along with the others I have done at the end of this month. This blog has 3 sponsors this week giving blog candy.

 Welcome to another Justascrappin' weekly Challenge! Nov. 15th challenge Tag your it-- make a tag or a project with a tag on it.  Use any theme and add some bling.  I made a LO with tags using Cricut Art Philosophy <Tag3>at 1 inch and 3/4 inch. Also used <bttrfly2> at 2 inch and <Bttrfly2> layer at 1 1/2 inch then <Rctngle5> at 4 inch for the title.

The letters used reflect the light and I could not get a clear photo of  "Leaving Russia". Added purple Stickles to butterfly wings and bodies but can not see all of it in the photo, maybe because of the over reflection of the letters.  Join us at  Justascrappin' weekly Challenge Tag your it.

Welcome to another Justascrappin' weekly Challenge! For the week of November 8, 2012  Lets paint the town with STRIPES  make a card, layout or 3D project using stripes.  Use any theme but use Autumn Colors.  I dug into my stash and found this striped paper, then went looking for something I have not used in a while here is what I ended up with.

    I cut a 3 x 12 inch strip of vellum, cut the edges  a decorative edges and chocked them and the edges of the small leaves. Using Vellum adhesive glued the top 1/2 inch from the left edge. Next I took a brown wire and twisted about ever 4 to 5 inches using a pencil tip until it was  as long as the page.  Using a large Zot I adhered the brown button with wire to the vellum adding leaves with small Zots to the twist down the wire.  Last using a large eyelet hole maker punch holes through both the vellum and paper about 1 inch apart and thread the ribbon then taped ends down on back.
  Using Cricut cartridge Art Philosophy cut the <circle2> at 2 inch and the  <square1> 2 1/4 inch adding Autumn to circle and placing the square for journeying.  Last the numbers for the date.  Join us for a great Autumn Stripes challenge at Justascrappin'
