Fairweathered Friends

Guess the coffee hasn't completely worn off yet...LOL. I have managed to complete another card tonight (just as I was hoping too). My darling hubby took the kids to rec night and I ran as fast as I could to my craft area...*wink.* These blogs were ones that I looked at the other day and had decided I wanted to give them a try.

The Pink Elephant had a Theme Challenge on this week (Challenge #49). What was the challenge you say....well it was BIRTHDAY!!!! I love making birthday cards so once again it was working with my Mojo...hee hee.
The sketch that I tried to follow was amazing. Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #56. I have been looking at this blog challenge for months now but this is the first time I am able to try it. Thanks Mercy for a fabulous sketch. It was wonderful to work with.

Sweet Stampin Colour Challenge #8 was very challenging. Emma had asked for us to use at least three of the colors...but with the caffeine pumping through my veins I thought I was brave enough to try all four. Now I will admit, at first it was easy, but then I did struggle with the layer of colors I had in my head. Emma thank you for the awesome color combo.

Sweet nibblets, as I am typing this up, I noticed that I missed a layer on Mercy's Sketch. I am sorry about that. I did try hard to do justice to all of the challenges. Sorry about that Mercy. Guess my Mojo affected my eye's, I didn't see the black layer...LOL. I was able to use my new just added to the excitement tonight. :) I also pulled out the very first stamp set I bought. The poor things have been so neglected...but not anymore!!!
