My very first Challenge!!

July 29, 2012

I am going to start making cards for several card/sketch/color challenges that I find on the web.  I need to get some creative juices flowing again!  Seems I go 'great guns' for a while, then all my mojo dries up.  Is it that way with you too?  Well, I have decided that to keep those juices flowing, I need to participate in some card challenges that I have found on the web.  So, here goes .....

I have been making cards for over 10 years - off & on.  More off than on, really.  I absolutely LOVE making cards, but as you know, we don't get enough time to do what we WANT to do most of the time.  I am going to set aside some card-making time each week just so I can make some cards and do what I love.  I have an online gallery at, which is a HUGE community for stampers all over the world.  LOVE SplitCoastStampers!!  I have made a lot of friends there from all over the world.  I am MrsOcean on that forum and here is a link to my gallery.  I don't know if I will keep posting to that gallery as much, now that I am beginning my blog.

So without further delay ....
My first challenge entry is (drumroll, please ... )

Less is More sketch #6 (week #78).

Here is the sketch that we have to (sort of) duplicate:

And here is my finished card for this challenge:

I used all Stampin' Up supplies:
Paper: Naturals White for base and leaf layer, Cajun Craze cardstock for accent layers.
Ink: Cajun Craze & More Mustard

I keep going to Less Is More challenge website to see if my link 'worked' being this is my first time.  And .....  by joe, I think I've got it!!  LOL

Well, my very first challenge is under my belt!  Yeah!  Look out world ... this is only the beginning!  LOL
