just a few more challenge adventures

In addition to the other challenges I've posted about this year, I set myself a personal challenge to use every new stamp set at least once before putting them away.  Pick a Pennant was another set I received free for attending OnStage this year.  It's also another that I wouldn't have ordered for myself, but only because I have another small alphabet set.  The pennants make this one unique, though, so I was glad to put it to use with the Color Throwdown palette:

stamp set - Pick a Pennant, ink - Soft Saffron, Calypso Coral, Pool Party; card stock - Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist, Calypso Coral, Pool Party; Stampin' sponge
I love those little tassels!

I told you not long ago about #dwpb100things, and last week I made thing 13 by using the last bit of spray paint from the back of my cabinet to alter the Army green index card file box I've used for several years to house my ICAD collection:
I planned to cover the bubbled-up rust spot with lettering but they didn't balance out right that way.  Oh well, it's still far better this year than ever before!.  And speaking of ICAD, today marks the end of week two in #dyicad2018; I've counted each week as a "thing" so today's card completes thing 21!  

I'm attempting to keep it simple this year so I have a better chance of completing 61, so I decided on Sharpie markers and twice through the alphabet (upper and lower case) with a few numbers thrown in at the end.

I've also given myself permission to double count the cards I'm making for #365somethings2018, so cards 131 through 137 of my #365cards2018 are also thing 18:

I'm about 30 cards behind on this one, but still pretty confident I can hit 365 by December 31.  How are you doing on your challenges?  Let me know where to find you and I'll try to share some encouragement!
