Tuesday Challenges on Friday

The Tuesday challenges are still pretty new to me. They tend to turn into end-of-the-week challenges because I never succeed in finishing anything before Thursday. I have no clue how the other artists create all these wonderful tags and cards in such little time. I am a little bit envious... but I also like the process, and that just takes time.

So, the first challenge is for Tuesday Taggers. This week's theme is "It takes all sorts".


This project shows what I really like to do - use my photos to create cards. It is so much fun, the possibilities are endless and I just love to play around and see what I can create. I love to surround my photos with some artsy stuff.

The second challenge is for Tag Tuesday at Kard Krazy. The theme is "Banners". This is what I came up with:


Funny that both challenges resulted in an ocean theme for me. I do love the ocean, so it seems only right.

If you want to see the fantastic projects of the other wonderful artists, just stop by Tuesday Taggers and Kard Krazy.

Wonderful card and tag...I love the ocean, too. You have a very intersting blog with some great shots. Actually, I could get a little hungry looking at these foods. LOL Have a good weekend.

Oh my gosh! So much to catch up on with you. I just read your last 3 blog posts. Love the idea behind wishcast wednesday--I'm going to have to have to check that out. I worship the ocean and truly love anything related to it--your artwork and quote is beautiful. You definitely capture the magical feeling of contentment the ocean brings. I love how you incorporate your artwork into stunning mixed media pieces--you really take it to a whole other level! And, I think you just sold me on Kelly Rae Robert's calendar. It looks amazing! Thanks for the very special comment you left on my blog--it means so, so much to me. My hubby and I now refer to the last two weeks as the "worst in our lives" but I think that things are going to only get better from here!
