Challenges, Challenges!

Last night on Cornish Heritage Farms Kim Hughes had a VERY cute tutorial on magnets!

I will show you those at a later post because we are going on holidays on Friday and since I am not a pre-post-for-two-weeks kind of gal I am going to try to stagger my posts and hope that you stay with me!

Anyway, on Kim's tutorial she challenged us to make a card using what we were wearing at that moment as inspiration!!

I was wearing my white golf skirt with green white and yellow striped tank - and yes the stripes were going the wrong way, which just happens to be good for today's sketch on Splitcoast Stampers!!

AND no smart cracks about wearing white after Labour Day either!!

This was a very quick card because I am supposed to be washing clothes and paying bills and packing so we can go away and every time hubby came in I had to pretend that I wasn't stamping! ugh!

I stamped the large polka dot background on Prism paper with whisper white craft ink.

The image is from Kim Hughes Nature's Silhouette and Silhouette Blooms II with the sentiment from Silhouette Blooms II also.

I attached a rust coloured Prima flower and a bit of rust gingham ribbon because I was wearing a rusty old bra - panties were good!!

Off to see Jake today, his mommy has a Dr.s appointment with her obstetrician!! Wahoo!


  1. For a quick card this is fantastic.

  2. Great card Bonnie! Especially for having to dodge your hubby while making it.

  3. A wonderful card. I love the little tiny bits of orange (your reasoning is too funny!). It seems that all those old adages I grew up with have been thrown out the window - don't wear white after labour day, florals and stripes don't get put together, don't mix red and pink....oh well, conform conform.

  4. So pretty, Bonnie! Great layout and I love the scrap of red ribbon!

  5. What a fun challnege! Your card is wonderful! Deb

  6. Neat challenge! Card looks great as always! Love the colors and the polka dot bg,I thought it was dp!
    You're awesome girl!

  7. Oh Bonnie this card is great! I didn't do the challenge...I just finished my magnets last night! I killed 4 penguins in the's a sad story. Anyway, I love this color combo-such a pretty card!

  8. I am so happy that you came to spend time with us on class night. Thank you for coming.

    Your card is phenominal...I am thrilled that you took me up on the challenge.

  9. Ouuuu! Pretty! I love the coloured silhouettes against the white and the hit of coral: simply stunning! (Love the sneaky stamping. I've been there done that. TOO fun!) :O)
