Take Note... Spectrum Noir - Anything But a Card Challenge

It's an 'Anything But A Card' theme at the Spectrum Noir challenge blog this month. I typically stick with cards since I can send those to OWH but I'd had my eye on this cute digi from Sassy Cheryl's for some time and this seem like a perfect excuse to get it. Sally is just one of Cheryl's adorable characters and if you like to color and haven't yet visited  believe me when I say you want to go see her work.

I found this cute little, fat notebook in the back-to-school section. It didn't have the retro composition pattern cover so I created one digitally, printed it out and covered the base of my notebook with it. All the dies are from My Favorite Things. I'm thinking this notebook will be my place for taking notes on color combos as well as keeping tracks of refills I have and ones I need as time goes by.

I am really enjoying coloring with my Spectrum Noirs and since I was lucky enough to win a random draw on one of the challenges I've even been able to expand my set. I'm definitely planning to put the colors I'm still missing on my Christmas list for Santa.

Happy Crafting!

P.S.  — OWH is having a Virtual Card Making Party this Labor Day weekend so if you're around and want to join in some fun crafting challenges be sure to visit the Stars & Stamps blog starting tomorrow.

I just recently received the Spectrum markers and there is a big learning curve from make your little Sally look soooo cute in all her colors.
