{so many challenges...}

...so little time. ;)

For this card "love you.", I combined 3 challenges.
Seriously, combining challenges is a challenge. :) :)

1) The Play Date Cafe - PDCC69 challenge is to use the colors BLACK, GREEN & RED.
{I found the Play Date Cafe blog yesterday and had a look around. It feels like a very nice place and I love that they challenge you with color!}

2) My Sketch World - Lucy's sketch #10 from the month long celebration going on now.
{Lucy's challenge also needs to include stitching, brad(s) & paint.}

3) The CREATE challenge to use decorative tape on a card.
{sidenote - if you look through last week's challenge card gallery, you'll see that my card made it in.}


Remember that 7 Gypsies tape with all of the fun words? Love! This scrappy supply ranks right up there w/Heidi Swapp crimson chip hearts, if you ask me. One of my favorite scrappy things ever. Anyway, it's all gone. Used the rest up to cover this chip circle. I then zig zag stitched on top of the tape (and my machine got a little pissy with me...but we got through it, working together. LOL!).

Thank you, The Play Date Cafe girls, Lucy at MSW, and Paige at CREATE for stimulating my brain while in my craft room last night. Totally appreciate it!!! :)

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!

hugs, patti
