More to Share!

Well illness has hit our house AGAIN this week, only now it's my turn! Despite the fact that my nose has been running like a tap, I have managed a couple of creative bursts the over the last few days.
One of the features of our SBT50 Christmas in July CC launch party on Friday was a Mystery Challenge set by another one of the Forum Mods, Vick. Her challenge was for members to create a Christmas card using red & white scraps, ribbon and stamping. The card had to be completed and uploaded in about 4 hours. (It wasn't a mystery to me though, as I created an example card.)

"Joy" card, created as an example for Vickstar's Mystery Challenge for SBT50 CC party.

The first of the actual CC challenges was a Blind Card Challenge. We were provided a list of materials and the instructions to complete the card, with the rest being up to us! I did not have the materials exactly as listed so was forced to improvise. Here's the result...


"Merry Christmas" card created for SBT50 CC, Blind Card Challenge.

The next challenge I managed to complete was the the third one for the CC - "Just One Word". The only criteria for this challenge was that we had to include the word "giving" in the title of our LO, and that we needed to use at least one technique. I began by running through ideas for titles and one I thought of was "Giving Perspective". I immediately knew I had a photo that would suit this perfectly that was waiting to be scrapped, and so my idea began. As the subject of the photo is Brielle's tiny, delicate hand, I wanted to use delicate papers and embellishments to suit it. I chose layering as my technique.

I love your giving perspective layout and you got it done perfectly - it is so delicate. Oh I so wish I was scrapbooking when my angels where newborns.
