KISS & a couple of challenges

Sorry friends! If Indianapolis hadn't started playing football so darned well in the last half hour, I would have posted this sooner! *LOL* It's halftime right now, so I'm gonna do this, then go scream at Peyton Manning to THROW the ball & keep it off the ground (they are NOT having a good running game against Arizona)! *ROFL* Today, I have your K.I.S.S. card and two challenges.

First, your KISS card - I've taken a pre-made A2 card base, some fabric tape and a sticker from Michael's dollar bins. The result...simple, clean, and pretty for any occasion.

I'm a day late getting this one done, but I thought I'd share it with you anyway. It's from the CPS Challenge Blog (#134) & the layout was supposed to look like this:Actually, this could have qualified for KISS...IF I hadn't used a Tilda colored with COPIC markers & OMS/colored pencils. *LOL* I'm in Halloween mode & I can't decorate, since we'll be moving soon (fingers crossed), so I'm putting it all into my cards. Here's what I ended up with:

The paper is DCWV's "Autumn Mat Stack", some Prima flowers in lilac & orange, a couple of orange brads, & this precious little Tilda (thanks Vicki!).
Isn't she darling?!? One of these days, when I have money to spend on something besides necessities again, I'm buying some Tildas!

This last challenge is for a new Yahoo! group that I joined this last week, called Hearts in Touch (hi ladies!). They are such a sweet & welcoming group of gals that when Dee issued the challenge, I just could NOT refuse. I used a really cool stamp that Vicki from Stamped Smiles sent to me a couple of months ago (waving at ya, GF!!). I took a 5x7 black pre-made base, some K&Co double-sided papers, this stamp (I call him "Happy Jack"), some chipboard photo corners colored with 100 Black COPIC marker & some Studio G inks (2 shades of orange, a touch of plum, & burgundy-brown). I think he turned out pretty cool.

I'm hoping to be able to share more with you tomorrow, like an entry for COPIC Colour Challenge, but don't hold it against me if you don't see me for a day or two - the boys have a short week of school & I'll be doing my usual - cramming in all of my errands before Thursday & Friday arrive. Be sure to check out my shopping links (right sidebar) & hop over to Hearts in Touch - Frances has some really neat stamps that you might enjoy adding to your collection.

Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
