Motivational Monday Challenge - Nov. 30th, 2009

Good evening all!! IT SNOWED TODAY!! I am usually NOT a snow enthusiast but being that tomorrow is Dec 1st and we are so close to Christmas it was actually kind of least by me :) I have just returned from the Dentist's office after having a couple of fillings done so I am going to make this one short and sweet.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it is.........a "RECIPE" of sorts! Here is what I want to see this week......

Clean, Simple, Elegance.......THANK YOU theme and the color Bermuda Bay used somewhere! I don't care if it's ink, paper or embellies or if you keep it Monochromatic like I did.....just don't forget to combine your ingredients for this Stampin' delish recipe challenge!

CLEAN.........SIMPLE..........ELEGANT........THANK YOU.........BERMUDA BAY.........

Easy, right?!?!?

Here is my card.....

On your mark........get set..........STAMP!!!

P.S. Don't forget to leave a link to YOUR creation in the comments section of this post to be entered in the draw for this week's prize!!

P.P.S. If you don't have Bermuda Bay.....feel free to replace it with a close Tempting Turquoise for example.....:)

Thanks for Stampin' with Tess :)

Motivational Monday Challenge - Nov. 23rd, 2009

Hello ladies!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I sure did, I was locked up in my scrap room the whole time!! w000t! Nothing better than a scrappy weekend!!

There is a fabulous prize up for grabs this time, so get your stamps out and your thinking caps on..........and STAMP your Monday evening away :)

Your mission, should you choose to accept a Monochromatic Masculine card!!! What the heck is monochromatic you ask?!?! Simple.....choose 1 color....maybe green, or blue for the masculine theme and add in a neutral or two (like Whisper white or Kraft) and you are set!! Remember that you can use different shades of your selected maybe Night of Navy and Bashful blue do something for you! The main goal is just ONE color......with a neutral or two thrown in for some POP!

Take a peak at my samples, and you will see what I mean!

Remember you have until 10PM MST on Friday to upload a link to your project! I will announce the winner on Sunday November 29th and post the next MM challenge on Monday Nov 30th!!
