Make It Monday - Trigger Tuesday - One Layer Wednesday

Hi Everyone. 

I wanted to play around with some challenges tonight and ... believe it or not ... I actually combined a few.  I usually am amazed at folks who do this but tonight the 3 challenges just kinda fell together.

First off, this delicious looking image, from Moxie Fab World's Trigger Tuesday, got my taste buds flowing.   Then, I was inspired by Nichole Heady's Make It Monday #35 to create some home-made washi tape.  This is a BRILLIANT idea ... I just cannot afford those yummy tapes (only own 1 roll at this point) so making my own is a great option.  And finally, the One Layer Wednesday #67 was to make a Thinking of You card and donate to a cause of their choice.

So the colours and the stripes come from the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger picture.  Yummy!  The strips are some home-made washi tape using Polka Dot Basics II and Background Basics: Stars (both Papertrey Ink).  The apple is from Teacher's Apple (Papertrey Ink).  The sentiment .. making it a "thinking of you" card ... is from Around and About Sentiments (also Papertrey Ink) which I love because you can create small sentiments.   I know the apple is popped up ... which means it is not "technically" a One Layer Card ... but it is close ... certainly close enough for me!!

Off to camp this weekend!  The last outting of the season.  The van will go away until next spring. 

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
