Inspired By Some Challenges

Last weekend I had posted on my favorite crafty site, StampNation, about how my crafting mojo was no where to be found.  I was challenged by some of the members there, and it was exactly what I needed to get back to creating. 

One of the challenges was a tic tac toe challenge, an old one, which I think was from The Paper Players.  At any rate, those challenges are timeless!  I combined a few of them with some current challenges, and here is the result. 

First, a card inspired by Muse Challenge #86, and using three items from the tic tac toe board (thank you card, pattern paper, shade of green).  Here is the card . . .

Leftover Basic Grey paper from a Simon Says Stamp kit was in the right place at the right time (and the only shade of green in the area).  The muse card is further below with my supply list (such a beautiful card in shades of blue). 

My second card is for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge (the sketch is below with my supply list).  On the tic tac toe board, the challenge was to use any shade of pink, embossing, and rhinestones or pearls. 

I embossed the ring, the rock, and the sentiments on this card.

I'm heading to a weekend crop later in the week, so I'll hopefully have plenty of time to create.  Of course, I'll be limited to the supplies on hand and will be chatting it up with friends. 

Hope you have your mojo and hope you find some time to create.
