Eat Your Veggies and Let the Earth Rejoice!

I have been so busy this weekend - I really just want to go to bed!!! I taught 2 classes at The Papertree in Manchester, NH yesterday (hi guys!!!) then 2 friends and I taught our monthly stamping class at our church today. But on I stamp!! (you know howthat goes right??!!)

So - I'm multi-challenging again - I'm behind on the last two weekly Doubledog Dare Challenges that I do with a group of friends on Split Coast - so I scoured Just PaintingAround - Featured Stamper Michelle's gallery to see if there was something that would fit!

And I found this tag card. I changed the colors and stamps used - but kept her fun design.

And I incorporated Charlene's (LilLuvsStampin) Double dare challenge to make a tag and use green on it - and Michelle's (sf9erfan) 1-2-3 challenge - to use 1 designer paper, 2 ribbons, 3 brads.

So here we are with an 'Eat Your Veggies' tag. These fun stamps are from a new company called Two Scoops Rice Designs.

We'd love to have you play along with our Doubledog challenges - just post your card on Split Coast using the Keyword DDC. You can see all the Doubledog challenge cards here.

Stamps: Veggie Set: Two Scoops Rice Designs
Paper: White, Ripe Avacado: PTI, DP Basic Grey Pattern Paper Off Beat
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: slot punch: SU, brown stripe ribbon: unknown, Ripe Avocado saddlestitched ribbon: PTI, brads, foam dimensionals, Copics, round nestabilities, cuttlebug

I've combined 4 challenges in this card (don't you just love when you can work that out!?!?!) The Limited supply challenge on Split Coast this week was to use just black & white (silver is ok too).

I used Taylors Sketch and I used ribbon tabs and mixed stripe and pattern designer paper which are the last two of Sharon's stamp simply challenges .

My stamp is from a Verve Visual set called Everlasting Life and my designer papers and ribbons are Papertrey Ink. I used the Cuttlebug Textile folder for the background panel to give it a little depth although you can't see it too well on my photo. The pretty silver fiber is called cloisonne thread and came from my dear MIL's sewing box that I was lucky enough to receive when she moved into assisted living (she's 93 and still plays scrabble on the computer!).

Thank you for stopping by today! Now onto making some Easter crafts!!

Julie, the veggie card is so fun and perfectly crafted! But your 4 challenge card is outstanding, you used all the calls so well, it is lovely! I love that scripture by the way.

I'll pray for your rest tonight that it will be power packed so you will be ready for your new week!
