Challenge #143. It figures.

Jana here challenging you all this week. I am leaving this one open to a couple of different choices. You can use figures (numbers) in your project OR you can use the silhouette of a figure (person, animal or thing). The rest is up to you.

I fell back on an old favorite this week. I made a bunch of bookmarks. Simple, quick and easy. I want to remind everyone that sometimes we can participate in challenges even if we have very little time.

I always have a book or two, or three, that I use to get inspiration and need to mark the spot, or spots.

So, I made bookmarks. It was easy. And pretty quick.

I have a bit more of an explanation and a template of shilouettes for you on my blog. The template has all of these figures and a few more.

Nothing too fancy. But they are cute and will make me smile. I have to keep reminding myself that every project doesn't have to be intricate and time consuming. Some can be fast and fabulous.

 Let's see what all the other wonderful poobahs have come up with for this challenge.

Deena here - I went for the silouhette part of the challenge...I have had these stamps for ever and barely ever use them, but I love them all the same...perfect opportunity to crack them out!

Gini here
What a fabulously flexible challenge this fortnight set by Jana - thank you!
I've made a card using Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemon and Peacock Feathers with an tiny Octipode stamp of Alice and a background silhouette stamp of dandelion seed heads heat embossed in tinsel black. I just love the new bright colours available in Distress Inks...yummy!

Rosemary here and I made a Christmas memory box using a Tim Holtz Configurations box and lots of little decorations.  (I think the number 25 AND the use of snowmen counts!)

Electra here.  I'm late with my piece - down south playing with my grandson, who is the subject of this.  So I guess I may be excused.  Here we go:

You have until the end of Saturday 17 November to join in with your fabulous creation celebrating numbers and/or silhouettes. Add your blog post address to Mr Linky below.
If you would like to join in with a previous challenge we've set (life happens and lateness is absolutely fine, we don't mind a bit) just add your blog post address to Mr Linky below. Please make sure your blog post refers to the previous challenge you are entering so we don't get confused. 
We look forward to visiting you!

My inspiration came from a Mexican form of "Bingo," which features a deck of numbered cards. Blessings!
