I’ve been so busy, I haven’t gotten to play along with many of the MFP Speedy
TV challenges in the past couple of weeks, so I thought I would play catch up and do most of them for this week.
For the Friends of SpeedyTV challenge this week, we were to make a Thanksgiving card this week.
For the Sketch With a Twist challenge, you have to squint. The flourish with the buttons (the twist) is the horizontal piece and the bird is the twisted vertical piece.
The Inspirational challenge this week had some great sock hop pictures to inspire. I was inspired by the turquoise teal color in one and the poodle skirts in the other two, as well as “bling” from all of them. Okay, please note that the flourish that looks like pearls is actually rhinestones. It’s been rainy here the past couple of days (yeah!!!) which made the lighting interesting. Both the sentiment and the image are from the MFP Fabulous Dogs 2012 set.
The Tutorial Time challenge was to make your own chipboard, which I did using the Sizzix Puzzle Maker #2 die and the MFP Christmas Bridge Mini set. This is a sympathy card for some friends whose son died this week. Inside it says, “Sometimes an integral piece gets taken from us and it’s easy to question our faith. Trust God completely. He is with you, even when you can’t see that. Know that you are loved. You are in my prayers.”
The pulled out piece is actually my chipboard piece on two layers of soda box.
Now, I spent most of today baking, and I haven’t forgotten that I promised to share another cookie recipe, which I will hopefully have time to do this week. I will be making mints tomorrow and bar cookies on Tuesday, but I will do my best to share a fun cookie recipe.
Thanks for spending some time with me! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
