Way To Much Time On My Hands!

Ok...so last night I was going through the forums at SCS. Let me tell you! I don't often peruse these...it's a bit overwhelming! There is soooo much information here! It's awesome....but a bit intimidating.

Well, after checking out some of the member forums I headed over to the challenge forum. I had planned on working on the weekly sketch challenge. Well there are so many challenges....color, sketch, limited supply....I could go on!

Here's where I have to much time on my hands at night! I made a little challenge for myself. I wanted to see just how many of these challenges I could combine in one card. Well...I got six!

Here's my card....
I used my Unity kit 'Oh What A Beautiful Morning'...I love this little birdy set! I started with the sketch challenge #SC182. Then I stumbled upon the ever so talented and sweet Sherry Cheever who had a challenge #TLC174 that watercolored using your reinkers...something I NEVER remember to do! The problem here???...I couldn't find my watercolor paper. I used card stock. I did however try to glue it down sufficiently to smooth it all out but it's just not the same.

Once I got really frustrated with watercoloring on regular card stock I decided to paper piece the little birdy. And guess what??? There's a challenge for that! A couple in fact! I searched and came up with #TLC39...paper piecing and #WT163...ways to use scissors and paper piecing was one of those ways! Woohoo! Up to four now!

Then I checked out the color challenges...and there was one that used bashful blue, certainly celery and chocolate chip. I had everything except the chocolate chip so I added the back mat and the ribbon. ...The ribbon reminded me of the knotty challenge #lsc172! Another which brings me to 6! Woohoo!

Ok...it's a record for me! Do you see where I have a bit of a problem! ;) Ok...there are obviously real problems out there! ;) I think I may do this a bit more often! That was fun! I'm not sure that I could beat 6! But it will be fun to try!

Thanks for indulging! I hope you are all having a wonderful Monday! It's funday Monday here. I'm not quite sure what we are doing today. I've spent all moring on the phone trying to fix my email problem. If you need to send me a message my yahoo account is fine so no worries there!

I am stepping away for a bit! I will be back later to post my first ever scrapbook sketch page! Talk about stepping outside of your comfort zone! Scrapbook - check....card sketch challenges - check.....Scrapbook sketch challenge! Wowza! That is totally foreign to me! I worked on this yesterday. It needs ....something....I am going to finish that during Hayden's nap and then post it here.

Have a wonderful funday Monday of your own! ;)
