The Last of My Fiskateer Online Crop Challenges

Well, yesterday was the last day to complete the challenges for the Fiskateer CHA Online Crop. Thursday’s aren’t really a good day for me. On Thursdays, I get a weekly needle that afterwards leaves me not feeling very well. Normally Thursdays are a wasted day for me & most often I end up sleeping the day away.

I managed to squeeze in a couple more challenges before I left to get my needle. I did try to work on some more last night before the deadline but unfortunately they didn’t get finished. I’ll work on those over the weekend. I also have some Valentine’s Day cards to work on over the weekend for my mother to send out.

Here are the challenges that I did manage to complete. This first card was for the Make & Take Challenge 3 - Leading Lady Feature 1 – the idea was to complete a card or project with a Picnic Theme. The inspiration for this was Chery’s (one of the Lead Fiskateers) Picnic Theme in the Fiskateer lounge at CHA. This was a tough one for me as I didn’t have any picnic type stamps so I created a version of Picnic using my punches. (I did case the idea). I ended up doing an Apron Card. The background was done with a Copic marker & ruler, (I didn’t know until after I completed this that I had a Plaid background stamp. I so need to get organized) the barbeque was done with punches & I also used my Fiskars Limited Edition Ant Squeeze Punch. In the end it turned out ok.
The last challenge that I was able to complete was the SWAG Challenge. Swag is the fun giveaways and promotional items that companies hand out to bring you to their booth or remind you of their company. This could be anything from a cute bag, t-shirt, nail file, funky sunglasses, bracelet or anything in between! For this challenge, we were to make some Fiskateer SWAG! Create an item that will remind you of Fiskateers.

Boy was this a tough one. Talk about having to think outside of the box. I ended up making a Fiskateer clip holder with a mini Fiskars Drill & Squeeze Punch on it. In the end, it turned out pretty cute. (It sure wasn’t fun making those tiny little tools lol). Here’s my take on the challenge:
Well, I'm off to see the surgeon this morning about having a knee replacement done. It's basically a matter of me telling him when I'm ready. If it wasn't for the pain, I'd never be ready as I'm terrified.

Have a great day & TFL!
