CC232, WT232, AND LSC234 triple header!!!

I saw the colour challenge by Holly (toy) this week on SCS and all I could think was, 'I've never cut into Taken With Teal...' That afternoon, my Stampin' Up! mini preorder arrived and I had totally forgotten that I ordered the new 'Autumn Meadow' paper. There is quite a bit of teal used in that paper pack, and then I realized that I was about to cut into teal for the first time! Holy Moses, who knew?!!!!

As it turned out, I didn't get to it until yesterday afternoon. I started cutting and my DD came down and said immediately, 'Colour challenge, eh?' I asked how she knew and she said, 'You never use taken with teal. It's a nice combination.' Okay, she's right on both counts.

My challenge triple header goes like this;

Colour challenge; taken with teal, close to cocoa and very vanilla
Sketch challenge; FAILED! I realized too late I messed up the sketch, so it doesn't count!
Ways to use it challenge; warm and fuzzy - I fuzzed up the twill ribbon
Limited supplies challenge; masculine card with a schwack of stuff not to be used. Did it!

It's been awhile since I've really played on the SCS challenges. It felt good, and I'm going to make a point of trying to do more in the near future.

Have an awesome weekend!
