Back 2 School Challenges…Last Call

Happy Tuesday morning crafty friends,

I just wanted to post really quickly this morning a reminder that the Quick Quotes School Blog Challenge is still running! You have through tomorrow to enter your school related project for a chance to win a…

Now for those of you that don’t necessarily have a traditional “school themed” project to enter…how about thinking just a bit outside the box…hmmm like the “school of Life”. I also wanted to incorporate this week’s Stampin’ Sisters in Christ Challenge (Scripture and Wings) into this AND of course, I wanted to try and include this week’s CWC challenge of Grandparents or Heritage (For me...my Heritage is strongly tied to the Lord and who He is to me and my family...both past and present) into the mix as well.


With those ideas and challenges in mind, I created this quick card to share with everyone.

Here is the first version. Really they are the same card, I just created two different versions of the Psalms 25:4 digital stamp scripture. I will be giving this pdf file away as just one of this week’s free files with the next newsletter. So be sure to sign up for it (top left box).



The designer paper is from the Quick Quotes Khaki Collection. More specifically the Khaki 600 double sided paper. I created the flourish lace panel and used an EK and MS punch for the butterflies. The roses are some Primas I have had in my stash for quite some time.

Here is a close up shot of the first version.

And here is a close up shot of the second version. You can also see that I used my Amaretto and Midnight Confessions Chalk Inks from QQ to gently ink the edges of the various mats and designer paper. 



Hopefully this will spur your creativity to think outside the “school bus” or “apple” and get your creative juices flowing and enter the QQ challenge as well as the CWC challenge and or the Stampin’ Sisters in Christ challenge.
