My first SUO challenge card.

This is my very first SUO challenge.  I found the site http://suochallenges.com/  and I thought, why not.  Looks like fun to me.  Anyway, if you look at some of my past posts, you will know that my craft area is at the moment a mess in my living room.  I did manage to come up with this card for the SUO 26, Invitation to a party challenge.  I used, Have a Seat set, and  Sincere Salutations.  The card stock is Confetti White, So Saffron, Red Riding Hood and Soft Suede.  Ink, Soft Suede and a little designer paper from stacks that I quilled for the first time, thanks to Stampin Success.  Ribbon is  retired red riding hood taffeta. Ribbon punch and a couple of pearls finished it off.

It takes longer but I did create today.

This is the card I came up with.  I have been meaning to put a little ink to the Plant Hope set.  Also, I had thought the You're a Gem stamp it's the little things, went perfectly with Bonasi.  Let's face it, they are small but mighty.  I used Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip and Calypso Coral for my colors and my favorite, seam bidding as the ribbon, in this case, Always Artichoke.

Still in the works.

It's been a real challenge to stamp this summer.  My Cave is still under construction.  Today Mike is putting down the raised floor and then next week the laminate will go down.  My job over the next few days will be sanding the drywall taping on the ceiling.  He's promised me it will be finished by the time I go back to work in September. 

This is a pictureof the mess of stuff before we completely emptied it out and moved it to our living room.
