Cluster of challenges

Went a little bonkers yesterday doing challenges. My hubby was busy outside and was busy inside... had fun. I think I'm making up for all of the time I was away!

I have a confession... I rarely make a card I would deem perfect. I can always see something crooked or out of place or smudged or whatever. It's a little frustrating but to be expected... I'm a bit of a klutz so it's not surprising my cards are a little skewed! That said... I think this first card is perfect (I rarely toot my own horn...but I can't resist...LOL!). No smudges, nothing crooked, good alignment and colouring. I may fall over from shock. This card is for two SCS challenges - Jenny's Clean and Simple #5 (use shades of blue and green on the card) and Roxie's Sketch Challenge #219.

The next one is for Jen's Sketch and for Stef's Inspiration Challenge #170 on SCS (inspired by this). I have a hard time using blue and green together but I seem to be on a roll here. This was a fun card to make... played around with my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities.

The next card is for three SCS Clean and Simple challenges. Number 2 was to use one button, number 3 was a sketch, and number 4 is accenting with dots. It's also for SCS Colour Challenge 208. Thanks Jenny and Emily.

Happy Sunday! Stop by tomorrow for the challenge... Take care... Glenda

  1. Love that first card, not because it is perfect though. Because I just LOVE it! All your other cards are really special too.

  2. All three cards are great...and you used 6 challenges to make them...awesome!

  3. I think each one is awesome, Glenda! I love the colors and the layouts are very nice. I'd say you nailed each one of them and should *toot* your own horn about all three!! You go, girl!
