It's Challenge Time - Heart 2 Heart Challenge

I had a crazy end of week last week, boy I'm I glad that I made it through.  I even had some fun too!
First we finally signed our papers for the refi that has taken over 2 months to close - but that's a whole other story.
Then I had a great time at my Thursday night stamp club - Thanks again Tracy for the yummy cupcakes.
Then I had to take down my tables for a garage sale on Friday morning - sold a lot of small items, but not the four really big things I was hoping to sell.  Tear down the garage sale just in time to set up for my Friday night stamp club!  Whew - we had fun talking after class (where does the time go?)  Then back to taking down tables and setting them up for the garage sale again for Saturday morning.
It was a fun neighborhood garage sale.  I'm glad that at least one of our neighbors did well.  Then a neighborhood street party outside enjoying our wonderful weather we had on Saturday!
What did I do on Sunday - Well, it is the day of rest right?

Anyway, on to the weekly challenge:
- it's an ABC Challenge. Here is what you have to include in your project:

A= Alphabet. Use alphabet stamps, stickers, etc.... in some way on your project

B= Boy. Your project must be for a boy.

C= Chocolate. You must include the color Chocolate (or other dark brown) somewhere on your artwork.

Now I'm off to my happy crafting space (oh that's right I need to set up my tables - yikes)  I will post when I'm done.  Meanwhile take a look at what the design team has come up with by clicking here

Okay here is my entry:
I used Delightful Alphabet stamp set D1221 for the U and the R.  X-Treme stamp set D1432 for the skateboarder and the word x-treme.  I also included the September Stamp of the Month Thriller D1442 if you look closely you can see the skull and swirls behind the sentiments.  The paper pack is X7102B Notebook.  I used desert sand and chocolate ink and three Chocolate Brads.
Remember to enter your creations so that I can see what you have made.  Have fun creating!

Heart 2 Heart Weekly Challenge

You have got to be kidding me.  I haven't posted on my blog since August 30th?  Yep, that's just about right.  I have been so busying it has been ridiculous!  I feel that I'm ready to get back in the swing of things now though.  Whew!

Anyway, on to this weeks Heart 2 Heart Challenge.  It is a sketch challenge (my favorite challenge).  Here is the sketch:
Check out what the design team has come up with by clicking here.  Remember to post your work too so I can see what you have come up with too.
I will come back in a jiffy to post my creation here:
Okay, here is my card.  I made it the standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card because that is the size envelopes that I have.  I used the new Mistletoe paper pack X7130B, the WOTG stamp set that is called All the Best, Cranberry Brads and Glitz Stardust glitter glue Z1313.  I also used cranberry and Cocoa ink.
