Not sure why I am saying that...I am only working part time, and mostly from home, so most days are the same. But I have been having fun playing with some challenges today. I am continuing my 2015 focus on sketches. I missed the Paper Players sketch, but this week's Friday Mashup has a sketch. I also have the weekly sketches from SCS and Freshly Made Sketches. Plus, I combined a color challenge with each one. Whew!
This first card was LOTS of fun! I combined the Colour Me...! palette with FMS#171. The stamped image and greeting are from Paper Smooches; more of my goodies that I chose with my gift card from the "Hope You Can Cling To" challenges last fall.
Next, I have The Friday Mashup challenge paired with
The Color Throwdown (first time I have joined this one!)
I was debating between using summer starfruit and kiwi kiss for this one, and opted for the kiwi kiss because of this fun polka dot ribbon. Plus, let's face it, kiwi kiss has been retired for a while...I need to finish it off! LOL I added a layer of concord crush pattern paper from the old hostess 6x6 pack. The whisper white layer is embossed with the decorative dots folder. My flower image is from SU's "Friends Never Fade." I used markers to color it: tempting turquoise, concord crush, so saffron, and lucky limeade (no kiwi marker.) I matted the pennant with more concord crush paper. For a bit more of the so saffron, I doodled around the edge of the pennant with my marker, which is very hard to see in the picture. The small greeting by the flower is from "You're a Gem," and I added one from "Teeny Tiny Wishes" also, punched out with the word window. My accessories are the polka dot ribbon, a bright turquoise button, and some limeade bakers twine.
Well, I had lots of fun with these. I hope you enjoy them...and I hope you have time to play along with some of these challenges too!
