Two Challenges in One

Happy New Years to all of my family, friends and crafting bloggers. How was your New Years? Mine was wonderful, we spent it with long time family friends. The laughter was non stop and the card playing was amazing. The kids all had fun playing outside in the snow and just being with each other too.

When we got home I was talking with Lori and we looked at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge to see if either of us won their fantastic blog candy. Well we didn't but congratulations to who did, HOWEVER...the exciting part was they posted their first challenge. It could be whatever color and design you wanted but the Diva's suggested using their blog colors, so I picked a few. I then went to Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge and she had posted a new sketch too #96. With two great idea's the inspiration just flowed. Making this card was a great way to relax tonight as I was doing laundry.

Here is the sketch for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge:

This is what I came up with for the two challenges. I can't wait for my circle spellbinders to come, I struggled cutting my circle this time since it was not the size of my cups...LOL. The things we do for what we love...LOL!!! I was getting tired so I forgot my dazzling diamonds on the wings and wand. I will put them on first thing....well I guess later today, since it is currently 1:00 a.m.
Stamps: Beautiful Fairies- Inadinkado
Paper: Real Red, Pink Passion, Basic Black, Pixie Pink, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Pixie Pink
Accessories: Basic Black Ribbon, paper punch, jewels, Swiss Dots and D'vine Swirl (Cuttlebug) and dazzling diamonds to come.

I would like to give you all a heart felt thank you for helping me with your comments it continues to encourage me to do what I love, so thank. Til next time continue to smile, laugh and create.

Happy New Years and welcome to 2010.
