AYLI #96 - Fav Hair Color

It's time for another As You Like It Challenge.  This fortnight our challenge theme is to make a creation using your favorite hair color.  Let's see that colored hair on your creation and tell us why it's your favorite.

This week our sponsor is:

Here is my card  - 

I would have to say my favorite hair color is red or auburn.   I love red hair or hair with red highlights.  It was the color of my hair before it started turning "blonde".  I love that in certain light it can look brown but add a little light and it turns fiery.  For details on this card see below.

I can wait to see your creations and learn what your favorite hair color is and why.  So, head back to the AYLI blog to link up your creation.  While you are there, check out the prize that's up for grabs and take a look at the gorgeous creations the DT made for you to see!  

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your week is going well!

Welcome to  the 376th Little Red Wagon Challenge!  Since we are in the second challenge of the year, I thought it might be fun to see cards inspired by resolutions or goals you have made for 2017.  If your goal is to exercise more, how about a card featuring an activity plan on doing.  Your goal might be to do more reading or finding more me get the picture.

As for me, I was inspired to by a journaling bible well over a year ago and hadn't put a mark in it.  I  decided it was hight time to start using it and this is my very first entry.  I'm hoping to do one entry a week and also hoping my technique improves.

Come on along and join us at the Little Red Wagon challenge.  You will want to see what the Girlfriends have going on and we can't wait to see your creations!

TCP 329 - Thank You

Welcome back to TCP Tuesday.  We've had a nice holiday break and are ready to roll!  Our challenge this week is to create a thank you card.  Perfect timing don't you think?

I pulled out Sketchy Flowers and Stacked Sentiments to create this simple thank you card-

I stamped and heat embossed the flowers on vellum, fussy cut and colored them with Copic markers on the underside.  The sentiment was heat embossed and a few sequins and pearls were placed for added interest. 
If you are needing Thank you cards or just want to add to your stash, why not join us for a chance to win.  Here are the details -

  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design to The Cat’s Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button by the Monday, 11:55 EDT before the next challenge.
  3. You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die but if you have them we would love to see them.
  4. On the following TCP Tuesday, the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10 or $15 if a TCP product is used.
For more ideas, stop in and see Christine and Julie.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Looking forward to seeing your Thank you cards!
