I'm Back!!!! 1 Card 3 Challenges

Good Morning!!  For the past 4 days I have had no internetL Before I lost my internet connection I had written up a list of challenges I wanted to enter. Today’s card is being entered into 3 different challenges. But before I get to that I need to tell you something else. If you have been over to Getting Cricky With K Andrew you may already know this but I am no longer on the DT. I choice not to reapply due to work. My mom and I took on two more daycare kids so my craft room now has a playpen in it. I didn’t feel that it was fair to be on the team if I couldn’t give 100%. Congrats to those who are the new design team!! These past few days I have had a lot of time for crafting because the times in the morning or night that I usually was online I was crafting!!

Ok so for today’s card I followed a sketch from The Sweet Stop Blog . Here it is

What I Used:

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamp Sets: Bethany’s Birthday Wish “bunny"

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamp Set: Sweet Gretchen “flower” and sentiment

Cuttlebug Folder: Floral Fantasy

Sizzix Die: Circles 2

Memnto Ink: Tuxedo Black

Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink: Alabaster

Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils and Colorless Blender

I am also entering this into Carson's Creations challenge. She recently had a hop for different embossing techniques and asked that we link up a card using an embossing technique. The embossing technique that I used on this card is dry embossing and then taking ink and inking the raised image to make it stand out more.

The last challenge I am entering this into is Little Scrap Pieces Blog . This one is different we were asked to link up a project using one of our favourite crafting supplies and then explain why it is our favourite. Well for me I could have linked up any card or layout as I use my favourite supply with every paper craft I do. It is my ATG. When I first got it I found it a little tough to open the lid to refill it but after a few tries it is so simple to use.

Ok that is it for this post I have 2 more projects that I made for challenges so I better get typing those posts up.

Have a Great Day!!

God Bless!

    I seldom use my ATG. It's far from my favourite - but I'm glad you like yours!!
    And I'm sorry to read about KAndrews. I'm sure that was a difficult decision for you but am glad you had the strength to make the choice that was best in your situation. I know you'll be missed as you do such a wonderful job promoting the stamps!
