One more quick post – I was trying to complete another challenge that has a deadline of today and then decided to double it up for one that has a deadline of tomorrow.  So I’m going to go ahead and post it tonight so I can submit it to both of those blogs.  I’m not a 100% happy – i already thought of one change that it probably needed but I’m not going to do that now.  I want to go watch Ga Tech in the Orange Bowl and I only have a few more minutes before that starts.

Ok – challenge #1 is from the Artistic Avenger Blog and it was to use a Christmas stamp set in a non-Christmas way.

And the second challenge is the Stamping 411 Blog sketch challenge – the sketch this week looks like this:

And here is the card I made real quick – it uses the Punch Pals stamp set – it is the Christmas set with the snowman, tree, penguin, and several others that fit various Stampin’ Up! punches but I created a Birthday card with it.  For the sketch I turned it on its side since I used the tags and they fit better in that direction.

The colors are Pumpkin Pie, Taken with Teal, Sahara Sand, and Whisper White.  I used the new Sweet Pea Designer Series paper with it too – I had to get a new product in there also.

And one non-su product would be the orange staples that hold the ribbon on.

It needs some work still….off to link to the challenge blogs and then on to the football game.
