Two Challenges: BIC18 and SC181


Happy Thursday! I have to admit, last night I had to ask DH, "Is this Tuesday or Wednesday?" and it really didn't make any difference to me! Love that! I have been working on my June Stamp Club projects (which I did finish and will photograph later when the rain stops and there's better light), but I took a little break last night to work on Beate's Be Inspired Challenge #18 and the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge #181. (Oooh, look how those numbers coincide?!) The Be Inspired Challenge was based on this cake, isn't it fabulous?!


You know it wasn't hard for me, since Bashful Blue is my favorite color. I did break out of my Whisper White box and use Very Vanilla for a change. I can also happily say I used Fresh Cuts again...the little green flower/vine stamp is from Fresh Cuts. The sentiment is from Fun & Fast Notes...another set that we received at Convention last year, like Wanted, that has been sadly neglected by me!

Okay, off to do some more organizing. I'm slowly getting the teacher pile in the dining room organized and put away. It stormed Tuesday and the power went out for an hour, so that got me started, luckily. I'm proud to say I waited ONE more hour and kept working before I turned the comptuer back on! hee! hee!

Thanks for stopping by! Have you stamped something today?

That card is VERY cute and a good compliment to the inspiration cake. That cake is beautiful! I love to watch "Ace of Cakes" on the Food Network. That's a craft that I haven't attempted. I think I might like it but wouldn't want to be around all that sugar. Too tempting.

I'm glad you're enjoying your vacation time! I'm jealous.

Tara said...

super cute card!! I may have to case...I love anything with those cute little flowers on them! :)

Donna said...

oooh, lovely card! I love the freshness of it (hope the 3 for you punch comes out singly in the new catalog--didn't want the whole punch box & stuff and have envied everyone who had the punch to use!) that's what I did with the designer label...waited for it and I got it

Britiney said...

I agree with e.t. This is a winner. When I saw your post I actually gasped!! This is amazingly simple and STUNNING!! I'm absolutely going to case this and make a bazillion of them. Thanks for the awesome inspiration!!

I lovey the cake and it's cool corresponding card! can't wait to see the projects for sunday!

vina said...

Hahah...I just read your comment - and - NO you have NOT seen this guy so I do NOT think this is a "i like you" weird form of affection kick! He is married, annoying, obnoxious and with kids. To which NONE are particularly attractive at any level of any kind.

Silli said...

wow Angie, this is so pretty. great job. I love this flowerpunch... Have a nice day...:-)

vina said...

Hahah!! You are probably right about the TEARS; I do miss you guys dearly. Next week I am good except for Tues & Wed. Myrick still has the lil people so I don't know her availability. We must meet before I leave though...even if we have to go drag Myrick out of her house.

Angie, your interpretation of the inspiration is AWESOME! So pretty! Glad to hear you're enjoying your summer!
