Just a couple of challenge cards...

In case anyone was wondering...LOL...our Family BBQ at the school went GREAT! There was a thunderstorm about 15 mintues before it was to begin then the sun came out and the wind died down and it was awesome out! We had a pretty good turn out last night, considering it was only day 3 of school!
Today I was at school again most of the day. Had a nice chat with an old Chairperson and she helped me with a few things that I'll need to do as Chairperson of the BPA this year. I'm a little(who am I kidding, I'm a very nervous) about doing Chair this year. I am looking forward to getting to know some new faces though!
Anyway onto my cards. This first one was done earlier this week for the CPS(card positioning systems) layout! Check it out here.
Today on SCS it was Limited Supplies Challenge. You were to make a sympathy card. We all know how hard it is to make them when you MUST make them. So why not get some made ahead of time right?
We had another thunderstorm a bit ago and I couldn't get a good pic of this card. The flash had to be used and it made the Elegant Eggplant look much brighter than it really is....sorry!
Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Stem Silhouettes and Warmest Regards
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Mellowmoss and WW
Inks: Elegant Eggplant and Versamark
Accessories: Ticket Corner Punch, Grosgrain Ribbon and Dimensionals
