I’m not doing so great at this, am I?

I promised bi-weekly challenges. Well, I’ve failed at the bi-weekly part. Maybe because I’m not getting much of a response on them. I guess that happens when you’re just starting. I think I’m going to do challenges once a month, at the beginning of each month, to coincide with my CTMH newsletters. So, for my few followers you’ll have to wait until the beginning of April for my next challenge.

If you’re reading this, maybe you can share my blog with others and help me get the word out. I will be offering little prizes for my monthly challenges!

Having said all that, I will keep posting my artwork since I know everyone can use some more inspiration. So here is some recent work. Just click on the picture to see some more details.

All CTMH: Unforgettable Level 2, and My Stickese, Rustic Alpha, Aspiration stamp set, Sorbet ribbon, Foundry Bookplate

Sweet Leaf textured cardstock, Cranberry and Lilac Mist cardstock, Cobblestone Alpha, Cuttlebug die(Olivia alpha), Confidential stamp set, Cranberry brads and nail head. The apples were printed off my computer and pieced together. The pull tab has journalling on it.

Need some birthday cards?

Here’s your chance to make some. I will be hosting a birthday card workshop at my home. Make 5 different cards, 3 copies of each, for $20. As you can see in the photo below, there are cards for all the different people in your life. Come for an afternoon of fun on Saturday, March 28 at 1pm. Email me to sign up before Saturday, March 14.

Next challenge, a little late.

I have to apologize for this one being a little late. Things have been crazy around here and now I’m even battling a bad cold.
Here’s your next challenge. This one is for card-makers, scrapbookers or those who love altered items. Simply create a piece of artwork that has some sort of embellishment in 3-D. Break out those pop-dots, ladies and have some fun!

Here is my layout, with lots of 3-D!

Products used: Life Delights Level 2 paper and My Stickese,
eyelets, photo hangers, sassy strands
Rustic Alphabet, Playful Lowercase

Once you’ve completed your project, just email me (simplycreating@ritskes.net) a couple photos, and you might just get a little gift.
