...hey, that rhymes, lol =0) Happy Sunday! It's my turn to host this week's Scripture Challenge over at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenges, and I hope you'll like this challenge as much as last weeks'? In any case, we have a fabulous new sponsor who's giving a $20 voucher to her new store, McMahon Five Designs. Sue has a variety of things in store including flowers, digi images to download, wooden papers, envy-lopes and more! I was drawn to her store by the unique wood papers... these are not just designer paper made to look like wood, they are actual thinly cut pieces of wood in many different kinds of wood. In fact, her website just got a "Facelift"! Go check it out!!
She also has a blog and offers some fantastic tutorials like how to watercolor digi-images!! I personally used her technique on this cute turtle and it SAVED me! I tried to do this before but since my only medium for coloring is watercolor, I failed miserably. But with her tutorial it worked like a charm! Thanks Sue!! =0)
Okay, on to my cards. I chose to do a Back to School theme this week. After this, please hop on over to our Challenge Blog to read the scripture for today and to see what the other Stampin' Design Sisters have made!
Okay, I came up with this saying and thought it was totally cute! Especially considering some turtles are "Snapping" turtles... and the fact that my 9 and 10 years old girls are now saying that (thanks to the Disney channel!) and if you read today's verse and my challenge, it's about encouraging our children (or teachers)... so I had to laugh at the thought that this card is actually encouraging my kids to make silly excuses to their teachers at school! LOL. What a great example I'm setting huh?! BUT... I can laugh, because I KNOW that they would never actually use this as an excuse! Also, my daughter's 4th grade teacher has a turtle for a classroom pet, so this was perfect for her! :)
And my next card uses Story Time Sophia, my August SOTM club stamp from Paper Pretties! I followed their sketch challenge this week. This winner gets a $15 GC to their store, so my sister and I both participated. It was amazing how much our cards ended up alike! We both used the same stamp, and the same Nesties! Hers is better though and I really hope she wins it this week! (you can see her card on our SSC Challenge Blog). This is perfect for my oldest daughter--she loves to read! This inside sentiment says, "A good book is like a good friend... the best part is on the inside!"
Hope you'll play along with us this week! Remember that our challenges can be used in combination with ANY other challenges you are doing... we just ask that you mention and link to us in your post! :) THANKS!
