celebrate today ....

I haven't had much time to be 'Hiding in My Craft Room' lately!!  My little kids are still on fall break and are just too much fun and distracting me.  They go back to school on Monday and though I will miss having them home I will be glad to get back to some kind of schedule.  I decided to get something done and where did I look for inspiration:  a MojoMonday sketch challenge #210 combined with a Splitcoast Stampers color challenge: CC344 Tempting Eggplant Pie.  Nothing like setting some serious limits to make you think outside or rather inside the box!

Here's what I came up with:

Card Base: SU  Tempting Torquoise 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:    SU Pumpkin Pie 4" X 5 1/4"
Other Cardstock / Paper:   Pumpkin Pie DP, Elegant Eggplant
Ink:  Elegant Eggplant, Versa Mark
Stamps:   PTI Mat Stack 2 Collection & CTMH Two-Step Backgrounds
Accessories:  Cuttlebug & Textile embossing folder, SU Pumpkin Pie 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, PTI edge and Mat dies

Here are some other challenges this qualifies for:
Meljens Designs - SIO - Use a Ribbon
Little Miss Muffet ChallengesGirly Girl
Crafts and Me - #56 orange
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes
I Did It Creations - Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays - must include a Sentiment - Anything Goes
