SCS - Inspiration Challenge: Home Sweet Home... HOMES

SCS Inspiration Challenge
This week’s challenge is to make a card inspired by your home state, province, town or country. It could be where you were born, where you grew up and still call "home", or where you live now.

Michigan: the Mitten State
I think Michigan is the only state where people hold up their hand and point to where they live. LOL! I was thinking of making a mitten card, but I couldn't make myself do it. Winter needs to stay away!

Michigan: the Great Lakes State (HOMES) Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, & Superior

And a preview for Monday's CAS Challenge.... It has something to do with Michigan. Great timing! So, I'll be back with more Michigan inspired cards on Monday!

Michigan is the Great Lakes State. Besides the infamous Great Lakes, Michigan is filled with smaller lakes and water sports are very popular.

As with all of my cards today, this is a double challenge card.
StampTV's Glitter Challenge
After watching Gina's video, I see that I don't have the best tools. Looks like I needs a glue pen and colored glitter. Today I used Stickles and Studio G glitter glue. It's just not the same.

Stamps: Happy Camper (Gina K Designs)
Paper: chocolate chip, close to cocoa, SU dsp, white
Ink: black, Copic markers, certainly celery, bashful blue
Accessories: hemp, Stckles & Studio G glitter glue, sponge, handmade cloud template, dimensionals

Sketch: Card Positioning System 161

Michigan: Home of the Motor City

Stamps: Changito (Stampendous), sentiment (Gina K Designs - Tag Lines)
Paper: basic gray, basic gray dsp (SU), white
Ink: black, certainly celery, Copic markers
Accessories: brads

Sketch: Sweet Sunday Sketch 63

If you live in Michigan, you'll probably agree that Michigan's symbol should be an orange construction barrel!

Stamps: Stampin' Up!
Paper: brocade blue, only orange, brocade blue dsp, white
Ink: black, Copic markers
Accessories: Offray ribbon, Martha Stewart zig-zag border punch, CM custom cutting system, SU 1 3/4 circle punch, dimensionals

This card measures 4.25 square. I use 4.5 A Muse envelopes.

All three cards are great cards . Fav would have to be the construction machinery and worker . It is bright and well coloured . The lower edgeing of orange piece and matching ribbon is brilliant
