TSB is sponsoring Quirky Crafts challenge & Stamptacular Sunday challenges

Today over at Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog, they've challenged us with puzzles - any kind.

The Stamping Boutique is sponsoring them for this 2-week challenge.

Don't know why - I certainly don't miss them, lol - but the puzzle that came to my mind immediately was those tiled puzzles where there's one piece missing and you have to slide them around until you get the picture right.
I used the Poppies digital image from The Stamping Boutique and colored it with Copics before cutting it into 1-inch pieces, leaving one out.  I sponged the edges with some Tim Holtz Antique Linen to give it a bit of a 3D effect before matting onto some cherry cobbler.

Cardstock used was certainly celery, cherry cobbler and garden green with some Basic Grey designer papers.  The mat for the sentiment was cut from this same designer paper.  Finished with a gold trimmed ribbon and some gold stickles.

In addition, The Stamping Boutique is sponsoring the "Animal Antics" challenge over at
I colored this 'boo-boo bear' with Copics and used Basic Grey's Max 'n Whiskers designer paper.  The sentiment is included in the Get Well Bear set.  The card measures 5.25 squared.
This challenge at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge runs for the next week.
Hope you like them both. 
Head over to the Quirky Crafts AND Stamptacular Sunday blogs and try your hand at a project with their themes.
Love to hear what you have to say, so please leave a comment.
