Triple Threat

WOOHOO!!! I made a card that fills 3, yes THREE, challenges!!! Yay!!! I've become more of a multipurpose card maker lately by combining challenges from some of my favorite blogs because with school this term, I just don't have the time to do them all individually each week!!! So, each week I choose a couple challenges and combine them and then make single cards for the other challenges. Eventually I give each blog challenge a card of its own about once every 5 weeks!!! Works for me!!!

So, this week I chose three awesome blog challenges to combine - Basic Grey , Mojo Monday and Cardalicious .

My challenges were as follows:


Journaling Tag - Chocolate: It's not just for breakfast.
Green - BG Color Me Silly PP
Orange - BG Color Me Silly PP

Basic Grey


2 Patterned papers - 2 BG Color Me Silly PP's
1 Button - Center of the Flower
1 Ribbon and Bow - Striped Ribbon
3 Brads - Gem Brads bottom left corner

Mojo Monday

See the sketch over at the blog (not sure if I can post it here or not so to avoid any problems just click on Mojo Monday to see the sketch)!!!

And for my card:


I also finished up my DT card and sent it off - it will be revealed on the 2nd so make sure you stop back by then to check it out!!!

I'm sure I'll be back later today with more work since it is icy and I have nowhere to go!!!

Thanks for stoppin' by and Happy Scrappin'!!!

Great job combining the challenges! Love your card.


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
