H2H ABC Challenge

I really wanted to play along with the ABC challenge at Heart 2 Heart this week.

The rules this week are:
A...use an ALPHABET stamp or stickers must be for a BOY
C...must have the color CHOCOLATE in it

I didn't think I'd have time, so I revived THIS old scrap project that fit with the requirements, and entered it.

Is that cheating? Submitting an old project that wasn't actually made for this challenge? It feels like it, so I found a few minutes to create this card for my nephew who has a birthday coming up:

All product CTMH
Pattern paper from Good Times paper pack
Cardstock in Chocolate, Twilight, White daisy
Stamps: D1432 X-treme
                                     C1263 Charm upper case alpha
                                   C1265 Charm lower case alpha
Inks in Chocolate, Twilight, Sweet Leaf and Buttercup
Techniques: Sponged background, 2nd generation stamping, torn edges
No embellishments! I tried ribbon and brads but they just looked funny on this boy card.

My conscience is clear now,
I've entered a new original project for this week's challenge, 
and got a card done that I actually need.

Thanks for visiting my blog!


  1. Hi Lorrinda

    Your scrapbook layouts look wonderful. Makes me feel bad though, I wanted to start one for each of my guys when they were born and now they are 7, 6 and 4 and I still haven't even started!!

    I LOVE the card! The background and the hill look incredible and I love the effect of movement you have created.


  2. Great layout and card! I really like the "special effects" on the card.

  3. That card is fabulous!!!! LOVE the background detail. Thanks for playing along with us at H2H.

  4. Love both of your projects, old and new! Congrats on being our guest designer this month you totally deserve it!

  5. WOW to both creations here .The card though is spectacular. Love the stamping technique shared here . I love torn paper/card in corner.


Aren't YOU sweet! Thank you for visiting my blog and for taking the time to leave a comment. I truly appreciate it!
