Not going to CHA? Come play!!

We were chatting/commiserating on Facebook the other night about those of us not going to CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) meetings in California and decided that it would be fun to do some challenges over the weekend.

We have 3 challenges for you to play with this weekend to get your creative juices flowing instead of feeling sad about not being in California!!!

1.  from Amy Ferraro Castellano: create a project inspired by your favorite CHA sneak peek collection! (keyword: PLAY1)

This is the card that I created for this first challenge....

It was inspired by this sneak peek of Lily Bee's new collection, Happily Lost...

I loved the colors in the collection and since today's sneak peek for the Unity Stamp Co. kit of the month was a cute bicycle, I thought that this would be perfect for today's card.

It seemed wrong to be inspired by those gorgeous papers and then use someone else's patterned papers on the card, so I simply layered textured white cardstock and let the colors carry the inspiration.
Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Feb kom (...the best is yet to be)
*cuttlebug embossing folders
*watercolor pencils
*corner rounder
*pop dots

Here are the other 2 challenges. So far, I haven't had a chance to play with them, but have hopes to find a bit of stamping time tonight (although my parents are here visiting so it may not be possible over the next 24 hours.)

2. from Amber Hightuse the colors of CHA (C-Candy Apple Red; H-Honey; A- Aqua) on a project (keyword: PLAY2)

3. from Christi Bryant-Snow: let the attached photo inspire a project (keyword: PLAY3)

I hope that you will be able to come and play with us!! Here is the link to the challenges on my Facebook page... HERE.
