SUO Challenges 101

Today’s the day, or I should say tonight’s the night! If the weather cooperates I will be getting on a flight to Salt Lake City at 8:30PM. Andrew is going to come by today and spend some time with me and then take me to the airport. If all goes well I will land in Utah at 11:45PM. I did treat myself to a little upgrade to sit in the first row with some extra room and be the first one off the plane! I have a hotel by the airport for the first night, my roomie Brian arrives on Wednesday at 10:30AM. I’m going to meet my buddy Wendy for some breakfast and then head back to the airport to meet up with Brian! I’m very excited to go! Please weather cooperate! I did have a nice day yesterday. Got some crafting done in the morning and then Sandy and Heather both came by for some lunch. I ran some errands with Heather and then went over by her for dinner. We had New England clam chowder and grilled cheese with turkey bacon. After dinner we did a quick run to IKEA and it was pouring when we came out. We haven’t had rain in a long time so no complaints! I went back to Heather’s for a bit and then came home and assembled my new little storage drawer. All in all a good day!

It’s Tuesday so it’s time for Stampin’ Up! weekly deals and here they are…

My post for today is for this week’s SUO Challenges. This time the theme is Bows, Bows, Bows! I’m not a huge bow fan but I do like them occasionally. My card was inspired by one that I saw on Pinterest. The inspiration card used a die to cut out part of the greeting and we don’t have one like it. No worries, I used my handy e-cutter! My card begins with a base of Sahara Sand Card Stock. I used my e-cutter to cut out the you from a piece of Lost Lagoon. On the top of the panel is a piece of paper from the Midnight Designer Series Paper Stack. Under that is a strip of paper from the Gold Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack. Before I adhered the panel to the card with lots-o Stampin’ Dimensionals I tied a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker’s Twine in the required bow around it. The banner is created with the Bitty Banners Punch and the “Vintage” Sans and Stripes Alphabet Photopolymer Stamp Set stamped in Calypso Coral. Some more Stampin’ Dimensionals hold the banners in place. I love the colors together and the layout of the card is just fun! I really hope that you enjoyed my card for the SUO Challenges Bows, Bows, Bows challenge. Stop by the BLOG and see what my fellow design Team members have created and enter one of your projects in the gallery. I appreciate your visit and if all goes well I will be blogging from Utah tomorrow! Have a great day my friends! 🙂
