RR#22, TSS54 & LRW121


Well, sadly, my main computer bit the dust last night, so I am relying on my laptop.  I am praying my computer guru will be able to do his magic quickly so we can get back to normal!!  So if my pictures aren't as "stellar" as usual, bear with me!  But whining won't fix it, so on to my card.....I did three challenges here, which is a little unusual for me.  I did the sketch from Try Stampin' On Tuesday, a new challenge for me:


It's also for the Ribbon Reel Challenge #22, which is to make a "weathered" project using Kraft, white, aqua and red, and use twine or twill.  Here's the photo inspiration:

And finally, the Little Red Wagon challenge #121 is to use chipboard!  So here we go:



My sewing machine stitched a little wonky here; I think it was the silk thread I used. Anyway, I used some canvas and burlap given to me by my wonderful friend Linda, to make a fun flower.  The tag is chipboard, covered with some gingham-stamped cardstock and another little Crumb Cake tag tied on with some linen thread.  


My paper is Real Red and October Afternoon Thrift Shop.  There's not a lot of white in the card; I hope it's still okay for the challenge!  I really had fun making this card!

  5. If anything you ever make is not "right" for the challenge, send me names and addresses. Burlap...never thought about it but I now have a new quest.
