JB Big challenge 5: pick a letter

Pick a letter
and then find 3 things that begin with THAT LETTER and add them to your creations -
a card
a LO
an altered item??

So, here is mine:

Robo template card of a red house with a red roof (that's got to quality for 'r')
Rub on (on the roof!) - it says 'New beginnings' - photo not clear at this time of night
Red ribbon

JB Big challenge 8: colour matching

what does this conjure up - use these colours to create a card or LO

I used HOTP papers (bought the pad ages ago and hadn't used any until earlier today - getting to like these now):

Btw I wonder why the flash photo makes the brownish brads look purple!

JB Big challenge 3: A recipe

We would like you to incorporate the following into a card, ATC, LO etc

1 a ribbon
2 blooms
3 different pattered papers

create anything you like

Here's my card, using ribbon, two blooms from ELC and three different HOTP patterned papers:

JB Big challenge 2 Monochrome Madness

Here I used another of the recently acquired large stamps, using Brilliance Coffee Bean on to a DCWV textured brown card. I swiped the ink pad on to a cream card blank and also on to some beige flowers:

The brown of the stamped image shows up better irl - light is fading now to get a good photo.

JB Big challenge Template 1

Here's my contribution for this template, using a large stamp I recently purchased as part of a set of four - had to use 7 x 5 card blank because of the size and got out some primas that haven't seen the light of day for a while. The dress is coloured in with a Karisma Gold pencil which looks far more gold irl than in the photo. Edged around the card with Brilliance Galaxy Gold:

It's a start

I just don't seem able to craft like I used to - perhaps it's because of all that's been going on recently - I don't know - but I've managed to produced a card using one of my favourite Magenta stamps and a couple of my new Karismacolor pencils (they are lovely - so rich in pigment).

There is a big challenge weekend over on Just Bex (well, it will continue for the whole of next week), so this card is for challenge 6: black and white and ... - addng one colour:
