I have so loved this year's challenges. They've inspired me to get out papers and tools that have been sitting around for awhile. :)
Challenge 6: Sunday Sketch and Use a Punch Combo Challenge
This challenge was a great excuse to use more of that yummy Moxxie paper!
|Moxxie and stash cardstock; snowflake punch; Stickles; ribbon|
Challenge 8: A Sports-Related Card
Hubby used to coach high school basketball. And, I had high hopes of making a wonderful scrapbook of his seasons. A decade later, those papers and die-cuts still sit idle in the closet. Sounds like its time to put them to another good use -- especially that amazing basketball leather-like "paper". :)
BTW Hubby suggested the sentiment at the bottom of the card.

Challenge 9: Putting a Neglected Tool to Use
Still not completely satisfied with the card below. I feel like it needs something else. Just not sure what that it is... And, I might need to go back and "fix" the little hats...
|Jillibean Christmas Eve Chowder; AC Christmas; border, oval, and snowman punches; ric-rac; hand-drawn embellishments|
Added a few gems since the first publishing the post. What do you think? Better, or does it still need something?
Challenge 10: A Card Representing Your State
What an interesting idea! I'm a born-and-raised a Buckeye. I've lived in Central Ohio my entire life.
So, what does Ohio mean to me? At first, two thoughts came to mind:
- OH-IO: It is football season, after all! But, I've never been a full-time OSU student.
- "Hi" and "Hello": Say what you will about our great state, it is one friendly place to live. But, this wouldn't be unique to just Ohio.

Ohio is definitely the heart of my world: hubby, home, family, friends. Yet, this would make for a wonderful love note from a hero to the heart of his/her world back home. :)
Thanks to Allison for organizing this wonderful party. Thanks to our hostesses for some great challenges that really got those creative juices flowing.
And, thanks to everyone who played along with the Christmas is for Kids challenge. I'll announce the winner of my blog candy next Sunday.
As always, thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin'!
