Two More Challenges

Yesterday I directed you to two separate challenges... and today I'm going to show you two more: {PIN}Spriational Challenge and Twisted Tuesday Challenge. Don't you just love a good challenge? I know I do!

January 22 - 28

Participants are to create a card/project {Pin}spired by this photo:

{PIN}Spirational Challenges have two sponsors, each that offer a wonderful prize to a lucky participant in the challenge. They also provide images for the design team to use for the challenge. THANK YOU to our wonderful {PIN}Spirational Challenge sponsors!

This week's sponsors are:


I used the Kitty Bee Designs "I Heart You" image for my card.

Here's the inside:

Be sure to go to the {PIN}Spirational Challenges blog to find out all the details about this week's challenge... and be sure to participate. I want to see what you create!

January 22 - 28

Theme: Use the Tic Tac Toe Board to create 3 things in a row (across, down, or diagonal)

Twist: Use something metal on your creation.

I went with the middle three, vertically: Thank You, Sparkle, and Brad and the brads I used are metal (and sparkly) which fulfill the Twist feature of the challenge.

Here's the inside of my card:

I hope you'll participate in this week's Twisted Tuesday Challenge, too!

I didn't purchase anything to create these two cards; everything was from my stash. Therefore, they are Card #25 (WOO HOO! I'm 1/4 of the way to my goal!) and Card #26 for the 100 Cards in 100 Days Challenge.
