Masterpiece Inspired



I made this for 2 challenges:  The VSN theme at SCS is "Game Night"  Angie's theme was a game I had never heard of called "Masterpiece"  She gave us 5 different masterpieces to get inspiration from.  The one I chose was "Paris Street; Rainy Day by Gustave Caillebotte, 1877".   You can upload until Dec 17th, so come play with us!  I combined it with the current Color Throwdown

Stamps: Confetti Showers House Mouse

Did you know that Power Poppy has a new-ish weekly challenge that is a color challenge called Hues to Use???  When I saw this week's colors I knew I HAD to play, it's Awash in Blues.    This past week, while we were in Michigan, we went to Holland.  While we were there, after putting our feet in Lake Michigan, we went to Nelis' Dutch Village.  We were able to see lots of beautiful Delft Blue Pottery!  It was gorgeous walking through looking at the pieces, even my boys were in awe!

I collect bell Christmas ornaments & had to buy one while I was there.

I'm baaack!!!  Yikes!  I knew it had been awhile since I blogged a card, but I didn't realize it had been so long.  Life happened & you know how that goes.  I made my list of cards I was going to need in the next month & nearly gasped when I realized it was over 30.  So this morning when I saw the Allsorts challenge that was embossing, I decided I would get one of the cards crossed off of my list.

Many Thanks


Ever had a day like this...  I looked for a challenge & nothing seemed to catch my fancy, I looked on Pinterest to see if I could find some inspiration... nada, zilch.... then I looked through the SCS gallery & couldn't find anything there.  So I just sat down & started coloring.  I didn't like the first color combo, so I tossed it & restamped my image.    Whew!  I'm so glad I pushed through & got this card made.  And ya know what... as I was uploading this card, I saw a challenge that I hadn't looked at earlier & I got an idea for tomorrow's card!!! Win!!!
