New Look for my blog!!!

OK...I guess I was bored this morning or someone left me to my own devices for waaayyy too long! I had to go and change just happened my blog caught it!

Actually, I've been wanting to do something different with it! Many thanks to Kim Jensen for the blog header that she provided as a freebie on her blog.

The challenge today required that we find a specific card and scraplift it. I chose to scraplift the color pink & the two heart elements (even though, I didn't use hearts).

Well, I made it......I did a card every single day!! This challenge has really pushed me to think about cards!! Thank you Caardvarks!!!

10 Day - 10K - Nine Time Challenge

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The challenge today was to make a card with a clock on the front. Easy enough, I figure....but I decide I needed to print off some digital elements that I had on hand in order to make this card have an old fashioned feel. Do you get an old fashioned feel when you look at the card?

I don't seem to have the terms of use for the digital elements..all I can find is that the designs are by Doormouse Designs. I'm not even sure where I got this kit.....but I really do like it!!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

So, today the challenge is to use 2-patterned papers, 2- circles, 2- ribbons, & 2 stamps.

OK...that was not too difficult...except I wasn't extremely pleased with the outcome of mine. If I have time later today, I am going to try to do another one. Maybe I will like it better.

Today has been a really BUSY day for me!!

I have been really busy today!! As you can see, this is the third time I have made an entry on my blog. Strange, I know!!

First I talked about the Dream Team contest...then about the Caardvarks Card challenge....Now, well.................

I decided to go back blonde!! I was tired of the dark hair.

Hoping everyone has had a great day!!!

10 Day - 10K - Lucky # 7

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The Caardvark's challenge today was to make a Good Luck card....Well, what is supposed to be more lucky than the date that just happened on Saturday...07/07/07.

That is what the 3 #7 playing cards on my card represents.

I have really been enjoying this challenge as I really enjoy making cards. I am so glad that I was lead to this site.

ScrapStreet Dream Team Contest

OK...My partner & I have made it to round 6---the final round. Due to the rules...I must go this round partner does not do a layout for this final round.You can see my layout for round 5 here.

I must say......I am really nervous about this round....this is what I must do for the final challenge.

Go on a hunt! Find something beautiful that I may have overlooked before. It may be something ordinary, or old, or silly, a thing, a body part, a moment--I need to open my eyes and really look around. What beauty do I see? Then I must scrap a layout!!

This is going to cause me to reach waaaayyyy outside my comfort zone. I like things all nice & tidy.....nothing different. How am I ever going to accomplish this challenge? I will do it because I cannot let my partner down!!!!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Well, today we were to make a 6 X 6 card.....not too hard. I used DMD cs & my Cuttlebug ....along with my sewing machine (something I don't use often enough) to do this card.

I was just feeling a little playful today, I guess!!

10 Day - 10K - 5 Star!!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

It was really a good thing I didn't just assume this challenge was for 5 stars on the card....because I would have needed to make yet another card. Today we were to use 5 embellies on our card.

Dream Team Contest

I am involved in a Dream Team contest on my of my favorite scrapbooking sites. We had to team up with a partner. There are a total of 6 challenges and we must complete 4 of them together (meaning both of us must do a layout). Then we must each complete one challenge "alone".

We have completed 2 of the challenges and after discussing it with my partner, it was determined she would go this challenge "alone". So, I am cheering for her from the sidelines.
