Here I Come To Save the Day!

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice (hubby had it made piping hot for me when I woke up! what a sweetie!)

Hold onto your seats everyone, today is going to have several posts. you had better top off that coffee before we get started.... just sayin'......

Being that it's Tuesday, you can guess that we have a new challenge over at Top Tip Tuesdays. it's a really fun one, and quite the challenge if you are someone like me. We want to see you use items starting with your initials on your projects. :) isn't that a great challenge idea? really makes ya think for a few.....

Since my initials are J and S, it made things a bit on the interesting side..... but then as I was browsing through the Saturated Canary store, one of our sponsors, inspiration struck! what you see in my card is the result. I hope you like it. :)

I've used the image, 'The Force Boy' and papers from the Archaic collection by Basic Grey. sentiment is by  Create with TLC. his light saber is covered in shimmerz paint because it has to have that special glow. stars were punched from corrugated cardboard. sticker is one made with lined school paper and a little label.

so here are my lettered items: Jedi Knight, light saber, stars, squares, shimmerz paint, sponging, jute trim, Spellbinders die, and sticker.

Craftin' Desert Divas - anything goes linky party
Kaboodle Doodles - song or quote (this is actually from the Mighty Mouse theme song. I used to sing it all the time as a kid. I've told you what a geeky little nerd I am! grins!)
Love to Scrap - bingo: die cut, sentiment, buttons
A Gem of a Challenge - punch it out
Creative Corner - anything goes
Jo's Scrap Shack - anything goes
Creatalicious - for the boys
Lady Anne's - anything goes
Allsorts - use your new stash (new image & a new shade of brown SU! ink)
TTCRD - anything goes
