Unscripted Sketches Challenge #181


Happy Saturday friends!  I hope you've had a good week, and are planning on having an even better weekend.  I'm happy it's Saturday, and I got to sleep in, a bit.  I've got a couple errands to run, and then I'm going to get my craft on.  I've got a list of things I want to get done, and I'm determined to finish them all. 

So, I have another Unscripted Sketches project to share with you today.  This week, there is also a piggyback challenge, which is movement.  For this weeks challenge details, click HERE.

I needed a couple of thank you cards for a set, as a gift for a friend.  I wanted something different than the usual square, or A2 card, so I made her a set of round cards.  They're all fall themed, with slight variances in colors.  My "movement" element for the piggyback challenge is that they slide open from the side, instead of opening from a fold at the top.  They're held together with a brad a the top.  Here's a picture of the opened card.

I dig them.  Unfortunately, I was running out of sunlight, and wasn't able to get a photo of all of them together, that I liked.  In real life, they're beautiful all together.  I hope she enjoys them. 

I'm excited that I was able to combine the following challenges in my card today.

Kaboodle Doodles #141 - Anything Fall or Pmpkin Patch
Forever Friends Challenge #47 - Halloween/Autumn
ColorQ Challenge #159 - Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, Only Orange, Pear Pizzazz & White (I subbed my Only Orange for So Saffron because I couldn't find anything in that color)
Use It Tuesday #41 - All About Fall - The stamps, roses and twine are all older than six months old.

I do hope you'll head over to the US blog to see what other fabulous projects are posted.  I do think you'll enjoy them.

Also, before I forget, I've lost a total of 5 pounds within the last two weeks.  I've told myself that for every 10 pounds I lose, I'm going to buy a new article of clothing.  Quite the incentive, I must say. :) 

Have a great day!

Beautiful card Steph! Love the shape - I rarely make shaped card and really should dabble in it more often as the results are so fun! Was thinking about you and wondering how you are doing with your eating healthy and exercising? I think you were starting that around the time I decided to start up something similar. I am finding it a bit difficult to fit in the exercise as regular as my trainer suggests especially with all the travel I do for work. however, most of the time, I am feeling great - besides the sore muscles of course - but that means that what I am doing is working and the soreness doesn't last long.
Hope you had a great visit with your Mom!
