Two! Two! Two Posts in One

I've decided to do something a bit different than usual on this fine Tuesday. Often times I have TWO blog posts on Tuesday - one featuring {PIN}Spirational Challenges and the other one featuring Twisted Tuesday Challenges. But I've discovered something. You, my blogging friends don't always scroll down to the second blog post. LOL!

Sooooo... today I'm going to include both challenges in the same blog post and see if you notice. ;)

After a short break to celebrate the holidays, {PIN}Spirational Challenges is back!!! How fun!!!

Our inspirational photo this week is sure cute...

Isn't that baby precious?

The sponsor is Bugaboo Images - I love Love LOVE Bugaboo!!! They graciously gave the design team members an image to use... and of course there will also be a prize package for one lucky participant. THANK YOU Bugaboo!!!

Now, here's my card...

Here's the inside:

I really do hope you'll participate in the {PIN}Spirational Challenge this week!!!

Now, the Twisted Tuesday Challenge...

January 8-14

Theme: Blocks of Color
*Use a color blocking technique

The Twist: Use at least three different colors on your project

This is the first time I've tried this technique. Here's my card....

I had fun trying something new!

I hope you'll participate in the Twisted Tuesday Challenge this week. It's going to be lots of fun seeing all the blocks of color.

Oh, and did I mention? These are my 8th and 9th cards for the 100 Cards in 100 Days Challenge... since I didn't purchase anything to make either one of them. YAY!
