First of 3 & 3 challenges in 1 or so i thought...

Whew, I went to a special twilight themed crop at Archiver's on Sat and it was such a blast. I got there a bit late - you know, trying to cram one last nursing session before leaving and all. but I'm so glad I made it! Sat at an amazing table of wonderful women to chat with and just felt that connection with that only comes with loving to papercraft, being twilight obsessed & having 3 kids. LOL Yeah, it was great to chat with other moms of 3 and see that I can survive this!!!


So, the first card I'm sharing I actually made last at the crop. It uses the super cute tiddly inks digi cherry bugg. I used LOTS of stickles and bright colors as she's meant for a few challenges this week. This first being of course the Tiddly Inks Challenge for embellishments (oops, I didn't read the challenge right, was supposed to use buttons and/or lace so this doesn't qualify but had fun nonetheless), I'm absolutely in LOVE with these flower embellies - they are so delish - they pretty up just about any card. I used them a lot on Sat! hehe I even picked up a few new packs. Thanks so much for sending me some to play with, Patricia! Then for this week's CMM color challenge (which is a beautiful rainbow pic) I picked up on several of the bright colors of the umbrella and last but certainly not least, I'm a HUGE lurker of the Oh, Alice challenges and always seem to think about them after the challenge has closed (like last weeks sketch which is awesome and drawn in my sketch book for future use!) I finally got in on this one which is to make it twinkle - I think I've managed that with all the use of stickles on those cuppycakes!! ETA: I forgot I used this week's Friday Sketchers sketch so there are 3 challenges in one card. LOL Be sure to check it out - I love their sketches!
So there you go...oooh, do you SEE that new embossing folder?! omg, it's a new Tim Holtz folder and I'm in LOVE - plus that core'dinations paper is fabulous with them! Eeek, the start of a new paper & embossing folder obsession, I can feel it!
