This is my 80th card!! I can hardly believe it myself! I challenged myself in April to create 100 cards in 100 days! I only have 20 days left before the drawing for my BLOG CANDY and only 20 more cards to create. If you would like a chance to win my candy simply comment on this post : ) Easy Peasy! See my original post with all the deets HERE.
I thought this challenge was going to get the best of me at first but with perseverance! I finally got a "post worthy" card to share! LOL but before I share my card today please join me in welcoming my TWO newest followers!! Why, you might ask, is Bev from Happy Dance blog so sweet!? well she is from Wisconsin! that's why : ) or at least that is part of it *wink* and she is a talented paper crafter too. Sherrie from A Little Bit of Everything Me blog has a bright bold style. I love the sentiment from one of her cards in THIS POST - it says "you will never find a rainbow looking down". So true! Thanks so much for following girls! I hope you will visit often : )
I had a nice surprise on Tuesday when my good friend, Theresa, came with her hubby to visit us. Theresa and I spend a wonderful afternoon in my craft room while the boys swapped fish stories! We decided to try Danielle Flander's "Make It Monday challenge" together. When I saw Danielle's video I thought to myself, "this will be easy"! well, it didn't actually turn out that way for me LOL I did not take pictures of my failures so you will never know the trouble I was (or had) even though there was a witness this time - because what happens in my craft room STAYS in my craft room - right T? heehee
We turned to the Mojo Monday blog for some design inspiration for our cards and found this neat sketch and decided to base our MIM card on it.
Theresa and I traded some supplies and I got the beautiful! "Dotty for You" Designer Paper Collection form Close to My Heart. I've been creating cards with it ever since! : ) LOVE this paper!! (She just got some boring tape.)

Have a great day, friends and thank you so much for stopping by. : )
