Grab a cup of coffee and sit down, this is a jam packed post.... since a few of these challenges expire today/tomorrow, I wanted to get this post up before I head to work.
First up we've got the 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday card. Check out the other fabulous DT cards for some fun inspiration. I used this week's CR84FN colors and because I've added a little "thanks" tag so I'm going to enter it in the Lawnscaping Challenge.
Next up we've got The Craft's Meow sketch challenge. Since I was lucky enough to win a set of stamps from the latest release I wanted to play along as my way of saying thanks. And since I opted for a larger tag (and put the sentiment in the, gasp, wrong spot) I want to enter this in this week's CAS-ual Friday "Tag It" challenge.
And for my last crafty project of the day I redecorated the tomato sauce jar into a piggy bank for the LESSology challenge "Jars of Cuteness". Some of you may remember that our family lived in New Zealand for 5 1/2 years and while we've been back in the US for a little less then a year now I thought that it's probably not a bad time to start a "NZ fund" jar. So I decorated the jar with some patterned paper with New Zealand images on it and made a fun little decoration on the top out of New Zealand postage stamps (that I have had in my stash since 2004 when I worked a temp job at the Ministry of Health in Dunedin). The postage stamps are for Yvonne's Do More With Less Challenge.
If you've made this far, well done!
