BellaHolic Sketch Challenge

Here is the card that I made for the Bellaholic sketch challenge on SCS this week. I was having a melt down because my trimmer was freakin out and cutting everything slightly crooked. It was only a hair off but non-the-less when you are layering it is so important to be right on. Anyway, I went out today and got the making memories heavy duty trimmer. I am still getting used to it and I'm not sure if I like it yet but it seems pretty nice. Anyway, I just love the new little turtle tots on the Bella site. I had the hardest time deciding which one to get but I went with this one and so here is my card! Have a great day!

Another two in one

So I mentioned in my earlier post that I am really getting into these challenges in fact today I tried the Bellarific Friday challenge which was a color challenge this week. I normally don't do color challenges but to my surprise I really liked doing this one. I was also really loving the sketch challenge that I missed from the OCC last week so in order to make the most out of my time today I combined them both! So what do ya think?

The OCC Challenge

Okay so I am really loving the challenges that are posted all over right, so I went ahead and participated in the OCC (Our Creative Corner) Challenge for this week which was "Add a Tag". You had to incorporate a tag somewhere on your card. I was already making this card for a very special person who's birthday is coming up soon ;o) so I thought that I'd go ahead and make it for this. I ended up feeling really good about the card. I was just what I was aiming for. I have added the badge on the right side of my page, feel free to play along. Have a great day!

Catching Up

So here it is the end of Feb already and I am just getting to sit down and make some cards! So the first one is the card that I actually made for my Christmas card this year. I cased it from our catalog because I loved it so much. I changed it up a bit to fit me a little better but the overall layout is the same. The funny thing is, I didn't even send them out because my life was so crazy that I never got around to writing my annual Christmas letter and addressing the envelopes so now they'll be ready for 2009.
The second card is for a baby shower that I recently went to. My wonderful friend Robyn is having a baby! In fact, I just got a text this morning that her water broke so when I say she is having a baby I mean she is having a baby right now! Hee hee. Anyway, I'm praying for you Robyn for a safe and easy delivery and a healthy baby! I love you! Okay so back to the card, I bought this paper a while ago at out local scrapbook store and this just seemed like the perfect time to use it. So there ya have it my first post in a loooonnngggg time. Hope you enjoy! Thanks
