Super Saturday Stuff

I love Saturdays...especially when they're the day after a holiday (yesterday was State Admission Day in Hawaii)! Yesterday I had to run some errands and then spent time re-organizing some stuff in my craft room so I didn't get to create anything but today it was on!! Here's the challenges I was inspired for the card above:
1. "Just Us Girls" Challenge - hot pink, teal, lime green: this color combo was inspired by the DeLovely paper form Cosmo Cricket...unfortunately I don't have any of that paper, so I got as close as I could. The colors specifically are SU! Kiwi Kiss, Rose Red and Taken with Teal.
2. A Crafty Little Place - blue, pink, green: I think this color challenge was based on the same paper as above! Great minds think alike this week :)
3. C.R.A.F.T - photo inspiration: The colors in this photo are similar to above but I was also inspired by the round shapes so went for that around the image (which was accomplished by using the inverted scallop nestie with a regular scallop nestie...love it!...my mom thought it looked like pop-beads which I totally agree with!)
4. Charisma Cardz Challenges! - die cuts: got several on here for the image and it's matting
5. Cooking it up with Katie - tie some string/twine, add some water, and finish with a punch: think they're all obvious...the punch was the use for the tag and the photo corners
6. Create4Fun - birthday card
7. Delightful Inspiration by Designed 2 Delight digi stamps - project with this image
8. Double Delight Challenge - ribbon, twine or sting + D2D image: got that and used the optional sketch too!
9. For Fun Challenges  - 1 ribbon, 2 designed papers, 3 embellies: for the last requirement I'm counting the embellies by groups...photo corners, flower brads, and tag
10. If the Shoe Fits… - metal - those flower brads are metal
11. Paper Cutz Challenge - anything goes
12. Paper Playtime - zoo: my little monkey image is taking a break in the swimming pool at the zoo! :)
13. Paper Romance - metal embellishment: see above
14. pile it on - get into shapes (5 cut out shapes): they are=circle, inverted scallop circle scallop circle, photo corners, and squares
15. Res-Q Challenge - "indulge in some "you time" and show what your therapy is!!": my therapy is coloring images which I had so much fun doing on this one!
16. Stamp Something - use something digi: the image is and I printed the sentiment out from the computer too
17. Stampin’ B’s Design Team  - die cut, circle, and flower: got several of each on here!
18. Totally Paper Crafts - summer fun
19. Tuesday Taggers - sea, water, or boats
20. Your Next Stamp - bold, bright, summery colors

Here's the inside of this one...

Here's my second creation to share...don't often use PP as the focus on a card but here I did along with the sentiment.
Here's the challenge inspirations for this one:
1. Color Throwdown - soft sky, chocolate chip, kraft, and certainly celery: Although this PP had a bit more reddish color on it than I wanted, it had all the others so I thought it'd work...plus I wanted those birds!
2. Colour Create Challenge Blog - ivory, duck egg blue and one other color from the inspiration picture: well, I thought this picture matched the color challenge above so well, I through it in too! Got a few more colors than just +1 though...oh well!
3. Craft Your Days Away - with wing: my little birdies have wings!
4. Digi Doodle Shop’s Best - "Anything, I say anything goes!"
5. Etsy inspired challenge - I was inspired by this collage picture from Global Child Collection
6. Everything but the kitchen sink - sketch: I embellished it a bit but I think you can still see the sketch!
7. Fab ‘n’ Funky - flower power
8. Pear Tree Designs - use the words "best wishes"
9. Stamp, Scrap, and Doodle Saturdays - kraft: there's a little bit on there...the buttons are, several of the flowers are matted with kraft as is the main image.
10. Twisted sketches - sketch...but just realized I forgot the twist of "staples"...hum...just imagine them there on the inside (picture below)!
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have an awesome Sunday and even better week!
Aloha,

Man 'O Man - you wiped the challenge board clean yesterday! Way to go, and such gorgeous cards in just one day! How do you do it? Oh yeah, I know how you do it - you are a naturally talented artist! Awesome and love the color combo in the little monkey card and the DP paper is a great choice for the second, I should try that more, maybe I could get my cards done faster!

ps Forgot to tell you that strong winds (tornado warning) blew through Festival of Little Hills Friday night - remember those days?

Talk to you later, Love, SAM aka MOM
