sunday sketch challenges

I am finding that I am trying to successfully combine many challenges into one card. Not that I can't make individual cards, but time is shorter nowadays and it is actually more CHALLENGING to see how many you can get into one card!

The baby card successfully completed 5 challenges!

Lord Have Mercy sketch #42
Creative Crew #31 It's a celebration
Crafty Creations #36 All Shades of Pale
Stampin' Sisters in Christ #8 baby card
Just us Girls #2 technique of paper piecing (my blocks!) and to use the color pink for breast cancer awareness

This card completes 5 Challenges:

Card Positioning Systems #137- sketch
Tuesday Taggers - use autumn colors
Stamp Something brown and something, but brown is the predominant color
365 Cards Day 217 tone on tone stamping- used MS leaves stamp to do my background
Secret Crafter Saturday #53 autumn colors

There you go! Have a great day!

They are both lovely. And you are right, time gets more precious as the days tick by, best to make good use of it, which I would say you have done with both of these precious cards.
