Well now to get on with Nathan's challenge. I met my dd and her four sons just before heading to the island. Her 7 year old asked me if he could make up a challenge for us to do. I agreed wondering just what he had in mind. He then handed me a spool of ribbon he wanted us to use. His instructions were:
We had to use some ribbon.
We could not write our names on the front.
I had to take pictures of each one including my own.
I could not let him see my card or tell him which one I made because that would be cheating.
He would choose the card he liked best.
If the card was good enough, and he really liked it, then he might make a prize for the winner.
So, here are the entries! lol One great niece had to work so didn't get to spend the entire time with us and did not get her card made. I would love anyone posting to let me know which may be your favorite one too. Who knows, I just might give a prize to the one with the most comments!
Here is my last card for tonight for blog challenges.
http://sugarbowlblog.blogspot.com/ This was a sketch challenge and you needed to use your favorite color. I really do not have a favorite but am a little partial to pink and girly things. lol
http://charismacardz.blogspot.com/ This challenge was for anything summertime. I really had fun trying to think of something summertime as I was watching snow blowing down! But, when I saw this little Sugar Nellie, I knew I would be using her!
http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/ And this challenge just fit this stamped image too.....Girly!!!
http://ildicochallenges.blogspot.com/ This challenge helped my pick my colors for the card......Black and Bright. I love bright pink and black together so that really fit.
http://creativecardcrew.blogspot.com/ This challenge was for a Christmas card so that was fairly easy challenge! lol
http://atsblog.typepad.com/wednesdayschallenge/ another easy one.....anything Christmas
http://stampwithsarahkay.blogspot.com/ and one more that was just Christmas
I used the sketch from http://trulyscrumptiouschallenges.blogspot.com/ and it was a fun sketch to do. I normally do not use too many flourishes so did have fun trying to work with the other challenges and make them fit into this sketch. I added stickles to the flourish for the bling effect.
The color choice came from Colour Create http://colourcreatechallenge.blogspot.com/
For it we were to use the colors black, white, aqua and purple or lavendar.
http://aspoonfullofsugarchallenge.blogspot.com/ Their challenge was for a non traditional color for your card. I figured the CCC was about as non traditional as I could get! lol
And the last challenge I am entering this card in is from My Time to Craft.
http://mytimetocraftchallenge.blogspot.com/ This challenge was for "Winter Pals" and I think this little snowbird and snowman look like they are best of buds. lol
And the last challenge this card it for is http://paperplaychallenges.blogspot.com/
The PWC was a wonderful sketch that I chose to turn sideways. The PK challenge was a recipe of polka dots, stripes, border and image.
Thanks to both blogs for such fun challenges!

This next one is High Hopes stamp of a poor little sick dragon. lol I made it an easel card as you can see. I do like the easel cards!
And this last one is just a sweet Sugar Nellie stamp. I used some pearlescent chalks on part of her so she has a little shimmer.
This sketch was from last weeks Mojo Monday.
I did have a lot of fun creating this easel card. The snowflakes were done somewhat like the tutorial. You cannot really see all the glitter and sparkle in this photo but it is there. lol Thanks for an awesome challenge!

My online scrapping buddy, Bev, and I are visiting other card maker blogs and doing a few of their challenges. I am fairly new to card making and the whole stamping thing but am finding myself being sucked into yet another reason for my poor husband to keep working!
