Playing Catch Up

 I have been trying to get back in the groove of card making, posting, blogging and commenting since Blogger interrupted my routine last week. Have had a hard time finding my mojo and have not been doing much commenting to my friends. I hope to get back to visiting everyone soon.
I made this card to enter into several challenges Including the one at Pixie Cottage whose sketch I used and also one of their stamps. I used the pocket between the image and green mat to slip a tag in underneath. ( See second photo for tag)

Pixie Cottage: Challenge is the sketch below right and/or  theme of "Tag You're It!"  I combined both in the card.
The ABC Challenge: U is for underneath. I placed my tag underneath the image.
DYSU Challenge: Add a Tag! Tag is shown below.
Basic Grey Challenge: Use a mix of your BasicGrey crafty goodies. I used 3 Basic Grey papers from Jovial and Oliver and added Basic Grey Brads.
The Beary Sweet Challenge: Challenge is Nature. Love to be out in nature and watch the birds, so I used  this cardinal on my nature card.
Stamp Something: Challenge is Anything Goes for their third year Celebration. Happy Birthday to Stamp Something!!
Kaboodle Doodle: Challenge this week is a game of TicTacToe -using the board shown below. I chose the middle row and used ribbon, die-cut, and brads.

Stamp: Pixie Cottage "Cardinal by Artish",  Flourishes Sentiment  "Lenten Rose"
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Bamboo Leaves, Distress Ink Wild Honey
Copics: E25,39,47, R 24,27,29,59, Y 17,28,
YR 07,12,18,  YG 03,63
Papers: GKD Ivory CS, Basic Grey Oliver and Jovial Paper Packs
Brads: Basic Grey
Ribbon from Stash
Nesties Rectangle Dies
Spellbinder Ribbon Tag Die

This post should make up for some of my lost time doing challenges.
Thanks for stopping by! Theresa

Oh, how lovely! The banners on the left are striking and reflect the pine needle clusters nicely. Grea5 balance!

Susan ~ Killam Creative said...

Heh, heh, the "enter" button got away from me... and that should sat "great balance". I guess this is what I get for commenting from my phone. :) Thanks so much for joining our Beary Sweet Nature Challenge - good luck!
