To Risk ...

I was just playing around this morning ... cuz I am officially on holidays for a week ... love these work day mornings when I can come into my card room and play ..

I love this sentiment from Verve ... I used paper from Scenic Route and some Bazil cardstock and Very Vanilla from SU.

The little butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch .. which I added small pearls for the body and to bring it together I added 3 bigger pearls at the bottom.

Hope you enjoy !!!

My Next Challenge SPCC # 94 .. I made it !!!

Ok this is really going to be a challenge for me ........ because ... Hubby and me are moving to a hotel for a week to 10 days... WHY ?? Weellllll .. the Town folk here in all their wisdom...decided we needed to update our water meter in the house in Jan. The fellow who was changing it did not turn off the water and flooded our basement ... our fully developed basement.... then he was running buckets of water up the stairs and spilled it across my hardwood floors in the kitchen/eating area .. wood swelled up ... disaster ensued ... Well tomorrow is the day they come in to do all the repairs. Dogs are at the sitters and Dan and I are moving into a hotel while the work is being done (due to sanding the floors replacing the carpets in the basement fumes from refinishing the hardwood etc...

So I am taking a small amount of crafting supplies with me and hope to get this card done by next Sunday :) So let's see what limited supplies can create ..

Hope you all have an awesome evening ... I am off to finish packing .. Laptop is coming so I will still be in touch.

I made it .. I snuck down into my card room and finished one off .. hope you like..

Time to KICK it up a NOTCH !!

My thoughts for the day are ... It is time to pick it up a NOTCH (or 2) .. I have been blog hopping and looking at all the amazing work out there. WOW .. what awesome talent. My blog friend Alaine ... DT members together ... Both our first times for OUTLINES .. HAS ACTUALLY INSPIRED ME TO KICK IT UP A NOTCH.... She certainly has !!! Check out her blog ... I look back at my cards and I see nice cards .. simple cards.... sketch challenges... some color challenges ... but it is all starting to look the same to me ... I guess I have not yet found my niche .. Time to get to work .. mmm which way will I go ... take a coloring/blending class ??? Try a new technique ?? Use many new techniques ??? All I can say is the next card I post will hopefully knock your socks off .. LOL .. I am stepping out of my safe comfy little box !!!!!

SPCC # 93 / PPC11
