challenge card

Hi everybody.   I have a quick post today to show you a card I made and want to enter into a couple challenges.

This is a very simple card that is folded at the 5 1/2 inch mark.  The image is one that I won from Teri at Delicious Doodles.  Don't you just love it?  She has the most amazing digi images for sale.  You should check out her site.

I printed the digi on white cs and colored with Prismacolor pencils.  I added the two layers of white punched (Martha Stewart) paper and glued that to the blue cs.  Added the sentiment using a Dollar Giant set of baby stamps.  I inked the edges with the same blue ink and added the bling.
And I was done.  How easy is that.

The challenges I am entering are:

Delicious Doodles Challenge blog -The Woner of Life (you do not have to use her digis to enter)

Unique Crafters Challenge Blog - Anything goes (new blog with a great prize)

Pattie's Creations - Anything goes (must use image digi or stamped)

That is about it for today.  Hope you are all having a good one.

Finaly, posting again

Hi everybody,

Sorry I have been mia for so long.  Life happens.  I spent time preparing for a card workshop I presented at our Seniors' Center and then had a Birthday bash for 2 of my children.  I have also decided to sell my house so am in the midst of cleaning and decluttering for the appraiser who is coming next week.

Anyway, I have been creating during this time and want to share some of the cards I have made. 
I have been bit by the "challenge" bug and the card I have today is for a challenge.

I am submitting this card to the Do You Stack Up challenge blog (use plaid).
I have made a masculin card, which is hard for me.  The card is pretty straight forward.  Navy cs base card, layer of grey plaid background paper printed from the computer, layer of red cuttlebugged paper which was cut with nestabitities.  Cut the white paper with nestabilities and left the metal die on to sponge the blue color.  The image is a retired Stampin Up image.  I used a piece of plaid ribbon over this.  I used my cuttlebug to cut the letters, glued them on the white piece, sponged the edges, added some bling, glued over the ribbon, and I was done.

I have nearly a dozen cards that I have created over the last little while, so hopefully I will be posting them over the next few days.

Happy day to you all.
