Ready, Set, Go!

Today is the third Wednesday of the month and that means a Ready, Set, Go Challenge Card! The 3 Musketeers (Jeanette, Kelly and I) are back with another challenge this month--our 18th month!  We are now coming to the end year #2!

Kelly provided the challenge for November: Typically in November, we gather together with friends and family and celebrate the bountiful harvest with gratitude and thanksgiving!  And that usually includes lots of food :)  No need to loosen a button or unbuckle the belt for this month the RSG!

For the crafty side of November, we’re going to show portion control!  On this month’s card, use only a portion of your image!  No full stamping ... only part of your image can be on the paper.  For example, have a large flower stamp? Set it off the the edge of the paper!  You can add more than one - creating a collage effect if you like - but no full images, including only highlighting part of it like a spotlight technique (as the full image is visible below it.)  Have fun choosing your image and enjoy keeping the portions Lighter! At least for your cards ;)


I inked up a Stampin' Up stamp set that I really like--Day of Gratitude--and the name even fits the theme and challenge. I thought the images would be good for a background and I also used one of oldie but goodie stamp sets--Graceful Words.  I am not sure if I was only to use a portion of that sentiment too--but I did "cut" off the ends of the image........................

Here is the inside of my card:

Please be sure to check out the other Ready, Set, Go cards.  Here is a link to Jeanette's and Kelly's blog.  I am sure you will not be disappointed and will see a couple of great cards!

Barb this is sensational! I love how you popped off the flowers at the halfway mark - you nailed the challenge! The multi colored ink is a gorgeous touch - it reminds me of the fall leaves as they change. Beautiful blessing to you on this day of thanks and gratitude and safe travels! ♥
