Michelle Perkett Studio - BINGO Challenge! & Allsorts Challenge Blog

I know most of you come here to see the cards, but sometimes I also write about my life.  It's my blog, and writing is therapeutic for me.  Yesterday was... bearable.  One of Maryann's sisters sent Richie a terrible text message right before the graveside service (which she knew about, so it was definitely intentional), but we didn't let him see it until later - we wouldn't allow you to upset him even more on what was already an extremely emotional day, Sue.  Nice try, though.  I saw you visited my blog yesterday, probably looking to see if I said anything about your little antics.  We also hope Maryann is resting in peace - but it's probably hard to do when you won't let her.  It's no wonder you all miss her so much - she was obviously the one kind soul who held you all together.  My heart goes out to you, because I cannot help but feel pity for someone who has no compassion at all for anyone but themselves.

I loooooove Tuesdays - it's challenge day at Michelle Perkett Studio!  And this week, we have a really fun one for you - it's a BINGO challenge!  So basically - here's the board:


And all you have to do is create a project using an image from Michelle Perkett Studio AND any 3 in-a-row on the board to get BINGO!  Or you can be really brave and do a cover-all - include one of everything on the board!  LOL  I'm not quite that brave - I went with glitter, ribbon, brads/eyelets (I used brads) for a diagonal BINGO and here is my card:

I am also using this card for the:
Allsorts Challenge - Things with Wings


I used the gorgeous Peace Fairy image from Michelle's Etsy Shop, printed on Very Vanilla cardstock from SU! and colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and Prismacolor markers.  I used DP, ribbon, glitter & flower brads in Old Olive from SU!

I also wanted to share another card I made using Michelle's Soul Mates image - this one was for my husband's 40th birthday last week:

I colored with Prismacolor markers and used cardstock from SU! and DP from 7Gypsies, added a little glitter on their tails.  It says "Your true soulmate brings out all of the beautiful colors of your heart."  Isn't that beautiful?
OK make sure you play along with our BINGO challenge and make sure you use an image from Michelle's store!  If you are a member of her Paper Craft Planet group, she's got a TON of freebies posted there, too!  :)  Peace.
