RESQ30 Challenge....Get Well!

The RESQ Challenge this week is to use the Salted Background Technique. I did this once before, but had to check the resources section of SCS to remind me how to do it.

It seemed to work really well for a maritime/nautical theme, so here it is. Denise would want me to ask you to take part in this fun one .... she is on a cruise right this minute!!! Please add RESQ30 to your keyword and upload to her blog here :

This is also for the StampinB's challenge. Joanne (jojot) challenged everyone to make a card with a nautical theme.

This is going to my friend Judi's DH, Danny, who fell yesterday and broke his arm, which they can't cast until the swelling is gone. He will be uncomfortable for a number of days. I hope this will cheer him. Thanks for looking.

Monday Challenges!

Two challenges today, and I can hardly believe it. I woke up at 2 AM, and will probably go take a nap soon!! I couldn't resist the Technique challenge ... a side step card. First, I scored the wrong side! Had to do that again. It took forever because I cut everything out. I love the UDDER balloons, I just don't remember where they came from because they are only the RED rubber. The cow is not the way the stamp looks. In the rubber, she is dressed in a bikini holding a drink, no tail and no udder. I had to ink just some parts and fill in the rest. The grass gave me fits. The easy part was the punching of the sentiment and the birds. However, it's done, and I won't be making any more like this one again, you can be sure!!

The CAS today is to use DP. I had this from K & Co., used my punch from SU! which I love and just got, added a sentiment and score lines. Done. One tough, one easy. Have a nice day. G'night!
