Off Color Challenge at Guylou's!

For some reason, my dear neighbor and DT buddy Chana decided that we needed a challenging challenge this go around at Guylou's Inimitability. As usual, I managed to forget about the challenge despite writing it down multiple times and still being on the sick and shut in list this week. (FYI - I felt way better this morning. Thanks for all the well wishes...) You'd think being home for two weeks that I would have created all sorts of cards, but eh?

Anyway, our new challenge is to use gray, blue, and orange with a humorous sentiment. Thank goodness for Split Coast Samplers; there's a spreadsheet somewhere on that site with a ton of sentiments arranged by type. I couldn't tell you where because I saved it onto my Google Drive when I first saw it, but know it's worth it if you're frugal like I am. After I read some, I found a great image to go with one I liked. So here's Francesca with a quote from Ellen! (I'm going to test that Google Drive link; it might work...)

You have two weeks to get your challenge card linked up for a chance at a GDT spot and some free digis from Guylou's Inimitability!

**Challenges: Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Anything Goes, Creative Belli Challenges - Rhinestones (I always forget to look in the bins behind my crafting area for buttons, brads, and rhinestones...), Inkspirational - Anything Goes (see pic)
