Noel - IAS #11

Hello my friends and Happy Sunday.  I've had a busy few weeks with class projects that needed to be done. Wow!  I don't know how people do this all the time - work and go to school and take more than 1 class. This last project that was due today was a real doozer - a scavenger hunt on the Internet. We were given 10 different scenarios to look for and find answers to the questions. It was tough. Luckily I get points for my research even if I don't find the answer, but I managed to get 7 out of 10. We'll see what I end up with as a final score. So far I've been doing pretty well with an average of about 90. Anyway it doesn't leave a whole lot of time for crafting, but I managed to sneak in a little time for this one.

Yes, time for another project for International Art & Soul. The theme for this fortnight is Flowers. My favorite thing. I love flowers whether there are an image or added embellishments. I've got to start thinking about Christmas so went with a Winter theme for this one. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do with it so I left off a sentiment and will add that later.

  

Materials Used:
  • Image - Lili of the Valley - Noel
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up Silver Metallic; Xpress It Blending Card; Shimmery White
  • Designer Paper - Bo Bunny - Attitude
  • Accessories - Flowers and Lace from Wild Orchid Crafts and Recollections; Die - Memory Box, Frosty Border; Silver Gel Pen
  • Copic Markers - BG0000; BG000; BG10; E50, E51; G34, G28, G43; R35, R37; V0000, V01, V12; Y11, Y23, Y26
That was pretty easy. Love the colors on this one.  I hope you'll hop on over and play along with us this time. Can't wait to see what you do with flowers. You could win one of our Prize Badges or be picked as one of the Top 3.

Surfer Dad - IAS #10

Hi my friends. Getting a late start today. I've been really busy the last couple of weeks with my class assignments. The research lately has been very time consuming causing many days of late nights. It's been so hectic that I forgot to post my card for this challenge on our Design Team page so for now, it's not on the IAS blog. I decided I'd go ahead though and post it on my blog. I really like how it came out.

  • Images - Make It Crafty - Surfer Dad; Beach stamp set by Provo Craft (very old)

 That's about it. Our theme for this challenge is For The Men. So anything with a masculine theme is good.
