SGC22 time!! color challenge for ya!

happy sunday y’all!  i hope everyone had a wonderful funfilled weekend!  SO SORRY for being so late in posting today’s challenge!!  i have been a little behind this weekend but i have just GOT to tell you about my day yesterday.

i don’t know if they do this everywhere but in our area around this time of year the Boy Scouts go door to door collecting food for the needy.  well this year our NJROTC cadets signed up to volunteer at the local food bank to help sort the food and parents were asked to volunteer in shifts to supervise the cadets.  so i signed up and thats where i spent saturday morning.  i have to say it was an amazing experience.

when i walked in the little warehouse/storage area was PILED HIGH with food donations!!  i mean TONS of food.  i was just awestruck at the generosity of people right there to see.  especially since there was a time when the boys were very small (i raised them both alone and was very young) when i was on the other side of the food donations.  so i was truly touched and have been thinking all weekend of all the people along the way that really helped me along the way in so many ways while i waited tables and put myself through college with two small boys – certainly not something i could have done alone.  i talked to the guy in charge and he said they are hoping the donations will be enough to last until march.  pretty impressive!  however this is the biggest time of year for donations.  after this they dwindle to very little and there are lots of people who still need help throughout the year.  so i am hoping that everyone will remember gratitude and generosity beyond the holiday season and donate at other times!  we plan on helping out with the cadets before Christmas too and then i might look into helping them on a more regular basis.



be sure and check out the beautiful new stamps!

Now for the next challenge – i have a color challenge for you – brown, blue and rust (or copper/bronze)

here is mine:

has anyone been to Michaels recently?  ok stop laughing, i know, silly question!  well if you have and you have strolled through their Christmas stuff you have seen all the new off beat christmas colors.  my fave is the blue and bronze – just LOVE it!!!  so that was my inspiration here.  i used a bronze metallic encore ink pad instead of rust so i get a bit of shimmer.  The bottom-most panel is SEI patterned paper.  the next blue layer is also SEI – it has a FAINT blue pattern on it and then i stamped the bronze snowflakes with a studio G stamp.  The two trees are also studio Gs stamped in bronze.  the light blue snowflakes and *cheer* sentiment are glitter rubons.  everything is edged with bronze ink using the foam ink blending tool.  of course i HAD to finish it off with a couple matching pezabling on top and bottom!

my card covers several challenges in addition to the Studio G:

Mojo Monday – Sketch
Pile It On – Rub Ons
Crafty Creations – Metal or Metallic finish

I hope you have a chancce to join in and put those cute little $1 stamps to WORK!  be sure to leave your link here in Mr. Linky!
