More challenges...and OH-NO...something more to distract me.....



Hi friends!!! OK...more challenges out of the way. This morning I started a Facebook profile. I have been on that thing for almost 4 hours. I HATE that I wasted that much time! I did run into a friend from High School, but only one. I was a little disappointed!



First challenge is for the Sunday Sketch at 365 Cards. I think you need to make a card everyday in this challenge, and I can already tell that I am not going to make it. I am only one the first challenges and it is four days into it. I'm in trouble.....

I made the background for this card a few days ago. I was messing with the Distress Ink smoosh techniques and actually set this aside, because I wasn't very happy with it. Last night after fussy cutting these flowers, I was really happy I didn't throw it out!! I was able to use two of my new SU sets on this (actually three, but don't want to cheat). I stamped the distressed background with the Kindred Spirits stamps, and the flowers are the Playful Petals set. The Distress inks that I used are Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Peeled Paint, and Spiced Marmalade. To bling it up a bit, I used Stickles, Turquoise, Star Dust, and Cotton Candy. The SU inks used are Almost Amethyst, Apricot Appeal, Old Olive, Pretty In Pink and Certainly Celery.


My cute little altered notebook here is for If The Shoe Fits...Scrap It challenge. I am not sure if I will be disqualified, because I made my own notebook with my Bind It All. The cover is acetate that I ran through the Big Shot with a CH embossing folder. I then Stickled the whole thing and placed the adorable MS butterfly punches on it. I used Liquid Pearls, Petal Pink and Mint Green on the bodies. The ribbon is SU. I hope this counts.




I may be done for today if I head back over to Facebook! *hehe* Thanks for stopping by!!!
