Card Challenges

Hurray! I got some mojo back Saturday night. I went to a small crop with my daughter Robin and her friends.


Here I am hard at work. I made three cards using challenges. I used Nina's freebie digital stamp image (There's Magic in the Air Magical Monday - Stripes). The challenge was to use Miss Kitty and to use stripes somewhere on the project besides Miss Kitty. Then I used Dawn's sketch #49 (Inspirational Card Sketches) for the layout. Love it when I can combine sketches!





Bitten by the Bug 2 has a contest right now. The challenge for the contest is to make a Valentine project using any Cricut cut that you want but there has to be purple somewhere on the project. I made a card using cuts from the Accent Essentials and the Stamping cartridges.




For my last card, I used Sketch Girl's sketch #10 and made just a basic thinking of you card. As soon as I finished with it, Robin told me she needed it to send to someone at work who had had surgery. I made her take a picture of it for me before letting her have it.



I'm looking forward to seeing the sketches that are posted this week and hope to get some more cards made.


Robin had to take our granddaughter Addie to the emergency room at Children's Hospital Saturday morning. It turns out she broke her thumb in PE Friday. But it didn't seem to be slowing her down any. She came with Robin to the crop and had a big time.

Luck, love and laughter,

Judy
