Go Green and Go Fast

This is going to be a very fast post. This week the challenge on the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog was to GO GREEN. You could either do it with color or with the environmental theme. My first attempt was with Spring Breeze. I mean what else could be more environmentally friendly than drying the nappies in the fresh air and sunshine. I had the card base finished, and the image colored. I decided to add some color around the edge of the image and totally messed it up. The next 3 tries didn't go any better. From that point, I changed images to Squeezes and thought just to go with the color theme. Got the image finished, masked it and stamped a cloud background over it and finished the card. I didn't like the way it looked. Time is now running out. So last night, I printed out the image, "Scoot About". This one qualifies on the environmental Go Green, since it's all foot power. As you can see, there was no lack of images for inspiration. Just go check out all the Summer Cuties at Phindy's Store . I also downloaded green papers from Summer Drigg's Sweet Cakes and Two Soon Kits.
I got up this morning with a full agenda on my plate and realized if I didn't get this card made and blogged before I left for town, I'd miss the challenge, so at 7 a.m., I was in TM busy as bee still in my nightie(good thing we live in the country and way off the road). I can't remember what challenge site had the sketch, but will come back and amend that later.
One last thing before I go. Be sure to check out Phindy' Place store tomorrow as Phindy is releasing a set of Winter Cuties. Also check out the Challenge Blog as the DT is going to do a blog hop with the images. We've gotten sneak peaks that have only been taunts and teases. However from what I can see, I'm going to have to have them all.
Whew, I'm out of breath and running behind. Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Oh Shirley your final project is precious. I had the same trouble with my Sassy Cheryl entry this week. I worked on that thing off and on all day. Everytime I walked by it, I would try something new. I did not persevere as long as you though, I gave up and posted a project I am not satisfied with. Now it is driving me crazy. I wish I had started over and not posted at all. Maybe there is something in the air fogging up our creative passages. LOL Happy Crafting!
