Good very late evening my fellow crafters. What can I say, a crafting pity party sounds good, but I am trying really hard not too. Here it goes: yesterday I made a card and was putting it together when I spilled a whole glass of water across my card and my desk. So my card and a bunch of paper were wrecked. Tonight my son came into my craft room where I was having a fabulous time and said "hey mom the floor is very wet here and spongy, it also smells like soap when he started to clean it up. Then we realized that the wet area was so much bigger. Now my craft area is ripped apart and we had to move everything and rip my cupboard out and rip of the carpet. We spent a couple of hours cleaning up what we could and we are still trying to find out where the water is coming from *sigh, groan, sigh* :( Anyways enough of my pity party. I challenged my girlfriend Lori to create a card tonight. Mine is super late getting on, sorry.
As always I just love all of the challenges out there and wish I could complete each one every week. Tonight I chose The Color Dare, Stampin Royalty and Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog.
The Color Dare (CD67) really challenged me with the colors of Old Olive, Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Elegant Eggplant. It was so awesome and I would love to try another configuration of these colors. Stampin Royalty has this amazing sketch, it was just calling to me to create, create...LOL! Way to Go Girls!!! Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog this week was to "Get Personal" and put it on the front of our card! Another fantastic idea thank you so much.
The card I made is for my mom. A couple of weeks ago when we were in Winnipeg she watched our kids for us. I love her to bits and pieces and wanted to say thanks to her. My mom loves dazzling diamonds like I do but you can't see it too well on this picture. I would have added a butterfly but due to not knowing where anything is located, I found my buttons and stuck with it...LOL.
I used mostly stampin up stuff with the exception of the cuttlebug folder and the little bella and button. The rest is all SU!!
Thank you so much for stopping bye and sharing my mom's card with me. Thanks Lori for playing tonight and Leanne you too!! Stop bye and see their awesome creations tonight. Oh don't forget to pop over to the PPC and try their color combo this week it is fantastic and a contest too, and Lori is celebrating her 25,000 hits with some blog candy!!!
