5 birds with 1 stone!!!!



...or should I say... 5 challenges with 1 card?!!! This worked out beautifully and Im hoping that no one frowns upon this, its so much easier this way! :) First I will start off with the layout of the card. Friday sketchers has a fantabulous sketch that scared me at first. I looked around at some paper I had stashed away and found some that complimented each other aannnndddd those papers just so happened to work perfectly for the color challenge going on over at Colour Create. The chosen colors were blue and green. This decision helped me overcome my fear of the sketch. Now... Ive been having so much fun using my Bic Markers that I have a small stack of images already colored. I pulled out a really adorable Gruffie image of a bear 'moving' another bear in a wheel barrow (green grass/blue wheel barrow). Which brings me to the next challenge... Over at House of Mouse the challenge was to create a card with a moving theme. Yet another perfect challenge for my card creation. The last I checked bears are considered animals, right? Right! Over at Paper Take Weekly, they wanted the participants to make a card with an animal on it. Bear + Bear = Animals! Yay Me! Im on a roll... LOL (oh I crack myself up) Something was yet missing on this little masterpiece of mine. BLING! Every card needs a little BLING! Wait, did I say BLING? Yup! Sure enough... Paper Makeup Stamps wanted a card with BLING! I had added diamond stickles and stick on gems for my bling. WOOT! WOOT! SCORE! 5 CHALLENGES! 1 CARD! After all that, I MUST tell you all that I have found a new love. Im in love! OMG... Let me tell you! I found a blog that I am absolutely head over heals for! You have got to check it out if you havent already. Let me wipe the drool from my chin before I continue on....(sigh)Ok. Her name is Ann but she goes by Madge. Her blog is called Madgesty - Love to Create. Her work is absolutely to die for. Go now and see for yourself. Simply AMAZING! Dont you think? So much time and color and detail. I love it! As you can see I attempted to add a little bit more to the inside of my card. Im a wanna be, I admit it!

  12. You are on a roll lady! 5 in 1, I think that beats my record. Now that's skill combining these all. Gorgeous card. I love that you decorated the inside. I don't do this often, but when I do, it's a card, I have a hard time parting with.
