Getting Cricky Simply Sunday- Color Challenge

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends!

I hope that life is treating each and every one of you well. I've been very under the weather for the last 2 weeks, which has taken my energy to do anything,  and unfortunately it is something that I just have to let run its course, but I was able to get some pretty strong cough medicine to help with this nagging cough.

But you didn't stop by to hear about my ailments! LOL! You came by to see what crafty goodness I have to share with you for this week's Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge! This week's challenge is a color challenge. You must use the colors Green and White + 1 other color.

This was quite the challenge for me. I searched through all of my paper packs to see what fun green patterned papers I had. As I was searching a great idea came to mind for me. This week is the 1st of 2 weeks for the students in our state in grades 3-5 & 8th grade. They have to take a state mandated test that is a VERY BIG deal. I am fortunate enough to be able to work with several 4th and 5th graders through our after school mentoring group and each year I like to give them a small token to encourage them to do their best on the MSA. So that was my inspiration for the quick and easy cards that I put together to share with you.

Here they are:

The card on the left is a 3x3 card and the one on the right is a 4x4 card. The horseshoe used on both cards was cut from the Create a Critter cartridge. The sentiments are from the following K. Andrew Design stamp sets: Splashtastic Summer & Fall-O-Ween

I used the horseshoe to symbolize Good Luck and I want the kids to know that this is thier chance to shine and show the state just how smart they are!

I hope you have enjoyed what you have seen today! Be sure to join in on the fun by submitting your project HERE! Remember this is a color challenge so you must use Green and White + 1 other color.

Well that's all for now!

Until Next Time...

Very Cute Lynda. Your kids are so fortunate to have you encourage them that way. Back when I was a kid, I had a teacher who would make little encouraging notes for us. I still have one. I treasure it to this day (and I'm still in contact with that teacher).
