Kitchen Sink Monday

I found time today  to create a few cards for the challenges over at Kitchen Sink Stamps. Each member of the design team hosts a challenge each week in the forums.

On Mondays I host the 10 Minute Card Challenge.
On Tuesdays Makiko hosts the Kitchen Pantry Challenge in which she chooses an ingredient or tool to be used in the challenge.
On Wednesdays Lisa hosts the Stock Up on Occasions Challenge where one occasion is the focus of the week.
On Thursdays Julie hosts the Word of the Week Challenge where inspiration for the projects is to come from the word selected for the week.
On Fridays Connie hosts the Sketch Carte Challenge.
On Saturdays Maria hosts the Case the Crew Challenge.
On Sundays Angela hosts the Everything Plus the Kitchen Sink Challenge which has something new and unique every week.



This first challenge card I am sharing with you above was created for Connie's Sketch Carte Challenge. I had a lot fun with this great layout! It allowed me to mix this beautiful paper from my "owl pal, Christy" with my beloved KSS roses!!

This next bunch of cards were created for my 10 Minute Challenge. The challenge this week is to select one color (the same for the paper and the ink) and one neutral color paper for the creation of your 10 minute card.

This first 10 minute card used Julie's Word of the Week as the inspiration. Her word this week was BOLD! No one is bolder or braver than our service men and women. This card is going to a group collecting cards for them.
