Tracy's August Christmas Challenge

Well, I've finally got most of all my items onto this computer! And I've figured out how to down load my pictures! Now let's see if I can figure how to get them onto my blog - LOL!

Success! LOL! Okay - so here are my cards for Tracy's August Christmas Challenge! The challenge this month was to use DP as your main image! When I first read that - I had a bit of a panick attack! But then - as I thought about it - the idea of my cards came fast and furious! The DP I used is from my Christmas Stack. I love this paper but it was hard to try and get something flowing with this. Thank goodness for SU Color Coach! According to the Coach - the coordinating colors are Bravo Burgandy - which I used as the layer behind the image - More Mustard - which I used as the main color for the card. I also used my cuttlebug snowflake folder to emboss this paper, and the third color was Elegant Eggplant - which I'ved used as my layer behind More Mustard and the stamp color for the sentitment.

These are not my normal 'go to' colors but I actually really like how these turned out! It's amazing how quickly your cards come together when you know exactly what you are doing and when the finished project is what you had imagined - it's a great feeling - which I needed! This definitely felt good to do! Again - it's great that Tracy keeps challenging us out of our comfort zones - and to see what creativity we have hiding inside! Thanks, Again Tracy!!

Must remember to try and schedule some card making time on a regular basis! It's such a great stress reliever!!

Thanks for stoppin' by!

Cute card & that DP is pretty!

A note to let you know that I posted pics & a post on the traveling Ugly card. I thought it would be fun to take the card to a tourist area & take a pic of it there. Feel free to post the pics on your blog, if you need me to send them via email I will do that otherwise copy the pic to your computer then upload to blogger. Let me know if you need any help. I sent it off to England & she just received so you should be hearing from Lyn (spyder) soon. Thanks this is so much fun & I will be following the card to see where it goes next.

Hugs Rita
