M.A.G. Challenge #8

This week at M.A.G. Challenge we used the PDDU cart, page 48.  These are challenging because you can only use the images on this page, no body on the page:)  I started going through my stamps and I knew what I would make.  I cut the horse @ 4".  The sentiment is My Pink Stamper.  I am actually pretty happy with it, I just wish I had made it bigger.  Thanks for stopping by, visit MAG Challenge and join in!!!!

M.A.G. Challenge by the Page #1

Good morning,

I have met two great friends, Melissa of MoeCreations and Gloria of Girlia Cards.  I recently started skype-ing with them.  First a blog, now skype, wow!  So, last night we decided we wanted to start challenging ourselves.  The rules:  select a cart we all have, blindly select a page, create any project using that page only and it must be completed by Wednesday evening.  Wow, what fun:) 

So, this week challenge #1 is page 92 of the Celebrations Cart.  I knew it would be something birthday, who'd figured:)

So, I found a site called Clean & Simple, they had a sketch that I really liked.  Now I knew what to do.  So, the challenge has officially started.  If you would like to join in with us, stop by our new challenge blog:  M.A.G. Challenge by the Page to link your great creation.  Ok, Melissa ur turn, since Girlia has already done such a fabulous project!  TFL:)
