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.
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:
Have a great day & TFL!
