Bright, Bright, Bright!!!!

Hellooooooooooo to you all! Today has been a great day, a crazy one, but a great one. As I was getting my kids ready for school, my good friend Lori called me and told me she had been up since 5:30 a.m. and had already put a card on her blog Inkingly Yours (her crafting Mojo was at high speed *giggle*). I couldn't believe it, she is really amazing. She then told me that she was challenging me to another crafty creative day...LOL and publicly on her blog....(how could you say no...LOL). I said okay and so I CHALLENGED HER back to the Play Date Cafe color challenge...of making a yellow card....we just love challenging one another, it sure makes life fun.

My DH surprise me this morning by working from home I wasn't able to make my card until tonight. It sure was nice to have lunch with him today though. We went for a walk and then picked up Robin and Kaitlyn from school to go watch Tristan's basketball game. Tristan's team lost but it was a great game.

So when I got home off to my craft room I went with a card in mind. When I was out and about I thought I should do the same challenge as I gave Lori. I don't think I have ever done a yellow card before. As always the Play Date Cafe had a top notch color challenge. I then went looking for a sketch and hopped on over to the Fresh batch only to realize that they have moved their sketch challenge over to the Our Creative Corner....and let me tell you the sketch rocks. Some other challenges that this card works for are: Papertake Weekly Challenge (Button, bows, brads and bling) and Pals Paper Arts: Spring.

Here is my card:

You want to here something funny. When I was reading Lori's blog I realize she challenge two of our other friends today to the same challenge...LOL. I thought before I posted this I would look and see what everyone did. I am still cheeks hurt. Why you ask? Well three out of 4 of us used the same sketch, we all used the same color pearls and the same paper choices (too funny). I guess our great minds think alike. Thanks Lori for the challenge today. Sorry it was so late on getting on here but I did complete your challenge.
SO A CHALLENGE OUT TO LORI....I CHALLENGE YOU TO MAKE A CARD TOMORROW!!! I also send the challenge out to Leanne and Melissa...may our crafting angles be with us.
Stamp: Thankful Blossoms (Verve)
Paper: Summer Sun, Barely Bananna, whisper white and DSP
Ink: Summer Sun
Accessories: Button, hemp, dazzling diamonds, pearls, D'Vine Swirl folder, Martha Stewart punch, dimensionals, paper piercer, and spellbinders
So here is wishing you all a fanastic night! Oh and one last thought.
A challenge out to you all....find some time for you to create anything tomorrow. Let me know on my comments if you take this challenge with your link and I will pop on over to see what you made. From one happy crafter to another....happy creating! I look forward to hearing from you.
