Getting back in the Game

I've starting posting a little bit more frequently and feel like I'm back in the game a little bit. Just a little though. I know I am still missing out on some great challenges!  Today I chose the challenges from Dynamic Duos and Mojo Monday.

I really liked this color combination and I had to use the dessert option since I now have this wonderful Clouds Embossing Folder!
That little booger of a boot took me forever to get right!  I tried coloring it with markers, watercolor crayons and aqua painters and none of those looked very good!  So I ended up stamping it on Tempting Turquoise AND Whisper White cardstock. Then I cut out the clouds from the WW and glued them onto the TT. That was a lot of fussy cutting but it looks sooooo much better than the coloring!  After all that work, I made the rest of my card fairly simple, for my sake and the sake of the card. lol

Stamp Sets: Bootiful Occasions, Rain or Shine
Cardstock: Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Ink: Black StazOn
Tools: 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Wide Oval Punch, Clouds Embossing Folder
Accessories: Black Dotted Scallop Ribbon, Dimensionals, Rhinestone Basic Jewels


  1. Shana, I think you discovered the true meaning of "fussy-cutting!" Great job combining both challenges (and you even fit in the dessert option!) Glad you could join us at Dynamic Duos this week :o)

  2. I agree with Karen! I had to look really close and thought..."did she really cut all those clouds out?" Fab job!!! Thanks for playing along at Dynamic Duos this week! ♥

  3. LOVE this card. Ugh...I miss seeing all of your designs...Makes me really want to pull all my stuff back out get the new stuff. Sigh...

  4. So sweet, love that boot and the cloud EF!! Wonderful job cutting out those clouds on the boot!! Thanks for joining us this week on the Dynamic Duos challenge.

  5. Wow the boot is amazing definitely worth all of the trouble and love the embossed circles.
