Sketching and Piecing -- C4C and Speedy's

Crazy4Challenges - C4C67
Hostess - Frances
Challenge - Sketch

This week our C4C hostess is Frances, and she has given us a fab sketch to work with.  I can't wait to see what the rest of the Crazies do with this one.

I used a Penny Black image for my card, along with some Paper Studio designer paper, SU ribbon, small white brads, piercing tools, Copics, a Marvy corner rounder, an SU oval punch, and a snowflake punch (company slips my mind at the moment).


Now be sure to venture on to the Crazies Blog to see the other creations using this fab sketch AND to see how you can join us.

AND....just a note.....this will be the last Crazies Challenge for 2010.  We are taking the next two weeks off.  So, be sure to look for our first challenge on January 1st.  Start the NEW YEAR off with the Crazies!!

Challenge - Paper Piecing

Our challenge this week was to use paper piecing.  I used the newly released Mark's Finest Papers set called HELLO SUNSHINE.  I just love this set and I have a feeling you'll be seeing it often.  The designer paper on this card is by DCWV, the ribbon is from Mark's Finest Papers.  I used my piercing tools, a Martha Stewart border punch, and assorted Spellbinders dies.

The rest of Speedy's Friends would love for you to visit our blog so you can see their creations AND you can get info on how to play along with us.
