Having Fun!


Well if you have been following for the past 2 weeks, you know that I have started skyping!  If you have not tried it, it is so cool, opens up a whole new world of opportunities:)  So, Gloria of Girlia Cards and I were on Skype and decided to use Rock Princess to make cards that we would mail to each other sight unseen.  Needless to say that when Melissa of Moe Creations joined the converstaion she wanted her card also.  Therefore, the cards have been seen because they could not wait (LOL)and mailed:)  Yes, Melissa I am waiting on my card:)  See if u can figure out who got which one!!!  Here is what I created!!!

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:)

Cricut Cardz Challenge

Here is my entry for the Cricut Cardz Challenge.  The theme is "Breast Cancer Awareness".  I saw the circlescape in the Papercrafts Magazine.  Yes, I punched out all those 1" circles.  When it was finished my husband stated it was missing something.  So I showed it to my blog buddies and Gloria suggested a black ribbon, perfection!  Thanks for stopping by!

Momo's Tuesday Challenge

This week Momo threw us a curve.  The challenge is to make anything but a card:)  Wow, this is definitely a challenge. Our Women's Ministry started a bookclub and I think I am the official bookmark maker!!!  So, I decided since we just got a new book, I created a new boookmark.  It is not a card, so I can enter it into the challenge:)

Bad Auntee!

Hope everyone is having a peaceful Sunday!  I made this card because I forgot that my nephew's birthday is the day before his dad's.   I sent my brother's card, but forgot my newphew who is turning 2!  So, bad Auntee, how dare I forget:(  My brother says he loves Elmo!  So, when I saw this pose, I knew I wanted to try something different!  I like it!!  I never thought I would purchase this cart, but for $9.97 @ Joann's I figured why not!!!   I will be entering this in the Cricut Cardz Challenge, since it is anything goes this week! Thanks for stopping by!
