It can have other things, but it MUST contain those things! Here's what I came up with.

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday everyone! Today is another challenge day over at Paper Therapy. This week's challenge was to use a sketch. Any sketch. Pick a sketch and go with it! A magazine, a sketch site, your own sketch...whatever your little heart desires! :) This is the sketch I used. It's from the "Go to Sketches" magazine by Paper Crafts. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this magazine and find myself turning to it very often!

And here's the card I made. My father in law's birthday was last week and since we're seeing him this weekend, it was time I made his card! Haha! Now I need to get my butt to the store and get a gift card to put in it! I love him and all, but he's NOT getting the Starbuck's giftcard I used for size! ;)

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!! :)

Another Challenge

Wow! To say that I have been a bad blogger would be an understatement! I even have to admit that I've been a bad crafter! Life has just been really hectic lately. Between friends and family having babies, vacation, and an unexpected death of one of my husband's friends has just been..WOW! It was nice to get back to the grind this week though! Today marks another challenge at Paper Therapy. Since July is fast approaching (WHAT?!? Already?!?!), this week's challenge was to use red, white, and blue in your project. This is actually a double duty challenge!! The Card of the Month challenge at Paper Therapy uses the same theme!! Even more motivation to work on this one, right?!?!? Anyway, here's the card I made.

This is an old sketch from over at Cardabilities.

Ok, well, I hope everyone has a fantastic day! It seems like it took Friday FOREVER to get here this week!! Tomorrow is going to be a crazy day. Dave and I will be running a Mudathlon. It's a 3 mile obstacle course in the mud. I'm still not too sure how I feel about this, but it should be fun. And there's a free beer and burger at the end... :)

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!

Woo-hoo!! So excited for the long weekend!! I'm ready for grilling out, time with family, and just a little bit of relaxing!! Today starts another challenge at Paper Therapy. This week's challenge is an ad challenge. There is no specific ad...go find one that inspires you and create something from it. You can use the colors, the layout, whatever gets the mojo flowing!! Here's the ad I used....

And the card I made from it.

I had another ad in mind when I originally started this challenge, but I'll admit...I waited too long and there just wasn't enough time to work with it. Hopefully soon tho! Anyway, pick your ad, get creating and have your project in our challenge gallery by June 8th! Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Hope everyone has a super weekend!!

Well crap! I'm such a bad blogger! I was supposed to have this post up on FRIDAY!!! Oops! I'm going to blame the nice weather we've been having and hope everyone forgives me!! Anyway, Friday started a new challenge on Paper Therapy! It was a color challenge.

Happy Friday!!

Happy Friday everyone!! So excited for today! Not only is today the first challenge with the new Design Team at Paper Therapy, but from noon today until 2:00 on Sunday I get to spend the weekend scrapping with my favorite sister and my friend Kris! Woo-hoo!!! So excited! Much needed girly time!! :) (And I get to go to my sister's baby doctor appointment! Yay for the lil' girl coming in July!!) Ok, moving right along! ;) The challenge this week was to use a basket for inspiration. Your project could feature a basket on it or just use something "basket-ish"...whatever worked for you! I chose to use a basket on my card.

This lil' bunny was just too cute so I gave him a basket of "eggs" to carry! Anyway, I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! I know I will! Hopefully I'll have lots to share next week!!
