yeah, the weekend came and went, and this week, it's nose-to-grindstone for me, because i am determined to find myself a good job! i haven't heard back (with even an acknowledgment!) from the place where i submitted my resume for TWO jobs, and by thursday, i should probably just give up. the recording on their career line indicates that candidates should allow 10 business days to hear back, via email or snail mail. thursday's the day. *sigh*
but let's start the week off with FUN stuff, shall we? :)
first of all, it's Design Dollies COLOR CHALLENGE day! when i came up with this combo, i had the BasicGrey Green at Heart collection in mind, and it did not fail me!
here's the combo:
light green, dark green, kraft and pink.
hot? i loved this one, and our Dollies totally rocked it! seriously, they just took this challenge and flew with it. our team NEVER ceases to amaze!
so here's my card:
i am in LOVE with the Green at Heart paper - there are such GORGEOUS colours in this line, and it's SO easy to pair up with the perfect embellies! how ironic that when i first saw it, i wasn't terribly interested... then i went to a crop at a fabby store, and couldn't resist its charms! ;)
go see what the rest of our Dollies have done with this, and get in on THE CHALLENGE - you have until next SUNDAY, July 4th at midnight EST to play along for this one, and it happens to be the last COLOR CHALLENGE for june! (hint - the prize is YUMMEH!)
i decided to play along with the BIRTHDAY challenge at Paper Sundaes this week. i swear, i need to make more birthday cards anyway, so i welcomed the challenge! :)
a little something for the following challenges:
ABC Challenge - X for Xtra dimension and...
FRIDAY SKETCHERS #108
i have to say, i was rather stumped by this one for a while, and had to rearrange my papers a bazillion times before i finally came up with something i liked!
here's my card, using the fabulous, limited edition, "Hula Kaylee", which is up for grabs if you play along at Some Odd Girl by WEDNESDAY! :)
i usually have some dimension on my cards anyway, but the "Xtra dimension" is given by curling the petals of the flowers up along the border, and adhering the brads by cutting the prongs off and stickin' 'em on with glue dots (they don't lay flush to the paper that way).
PLAY ALONG at SOME ODD GIRL to win Hula Kaylee (is she not adorable?! and did i make the skin look believable, being that she's from Hawaii?), plus one image of your choice from the shop! the challenge is an EASY one! :)
ANNNNND, you still have a couple of days to get in on the collage challenge at Envious - here's the prompt:
TOTALLY hot, and so much you can do with this! (psssst, Lauren! Heidi! Gina! where are you?!) get in on it, and we'll have a brand new challenge for you on July 7th!
and now, back to our regularly scheduled job hunt. ciao, chickens! xo
