Clear Dollar Guest Designer Challenge September 09


Hi Everyone! Can you believe September is just around the corner? Man, this year has gone so fast! My little boy will be turning 6, the weather will soon become bareable and new stamps will be coming out at Clear Dollar Stamps! All good reasons to be happy for September. But also it is time for the Clear Dollar Guest Designer Challenge! Find out all the details at Lori's blog, Clearly iStamp and give it a shot! The challenge this month is two fold. First it challenges us to use the colors Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie & Not Quite Navy with an optional Always Artichoke and Vanilla or White for a neutral. (I opted to not use the Always Artichoke simply because I have none.) The second part of the challenge is to use the provided sketch. You have the option to do one or the other or both. I chose to do both because I love both color and sketch challenges!


Thank you for stopping by! I am grateful for each and every comment I receive! So Thank you!

Hey Christi! Great card... that candy corn is getting me in the mood for Halloween... to be honest, not a huge fan of the candy corn, but put it in front of me and I'll eat it anyway. No self control here.
