As I travel through "BLOG LAND" each week, I tend to see "themes" going on everywhere. This is how I find out what kinds of cards need to be made for the challenges out there. I was seeing a lot of really cute back to school cards, so I decided to make one and enter some of the fun challenges this week.
This card uses all October Afternoon products (papers and stickers) and then I hand cut the apple and stem from some scraps of felt that I had in my supplies. I used a die-cut for the felt leaves. Then, the final touch was some twine.
Here are the challenges I found where I am able to share my card:
Red Carpet Studios - Challenge 49 Based on the movie - SCHOOL OF ROCK - They asked for a back to school card.
Simon Says Stamp Vintage Monday Challenges - Challenge: MAKE THE CUT - They asked us to use die-cuts, punches, etc. I used a die-cut to cut my leaves.
V's Sweet Ideas - Challenge 14 - SOMETHING TWINE - I love using baker's twine and V's Sweet Ideas carries lots of great colors
Craft Your Passion - Challenge 175 - DON'T GET YOUR TWINE IN A TANGLE - I used green and red baker's twine, and I didn't get it in a tangle! LOL
Created With Love Challenge Blog - Challenge 53 - BACK TO SCHOOL
Word Art Wednesday - Challenge 93 - ANYTHING GOES - Family Friendly, Uplifting, or Encouraging
If you know of any other fun challenges where I can share this card, I'd love to hear about it. I haven't found all the challenge blogs out there, so I tend to "copy" or enter the challenges that other people enter. I have several "mentors" who have helped me get started and I like getting challenge ideas from them. I'd really like hearing your suggestions for good challenge blogs.
Have fun this week in your craft room!
