Hi Everyone. Happy Friday night. I hope you all had a great week.
It's Friday..... Oh! Yeah! I managed to get my challenge card done tonight for the Paper Players challenge. I rarely get my card done before the very last minute. This week, I was a whole 18 hours early! Mmmmm.... took me 3 goes before I got a card I was happy with - but I got it done!
I wanted to share a special card with you tonight. I loved this card when I got it in the regional swap. Diane, who made the card, made them in 4 different base colors. I thought they were amazing. There is so much detail and thought in this card. It made me happy.
Well, it was so good, that Shelli Gardner (CEO and co-founder of Stampin' Up!) judged it as 1 of 2 of the best cards entered into the swap box at regionals. I know you will love it, too!
Isn't that just the cutest thing!!! I love the way she cut out the hole in the "tree". I love the way she cut out the "tree". I love the vest on the owl! I love the punched out heart. I love the leaves and the branches. I love the black to play off of the Poppy Parade. I love the triple punched circles for the owls eyes..... and I absolutely love the googly eyes on the owl! Just absolutely fabulous. No other words needed. Pure fantabulous-ness.
Now, I would love to give you a link to Diane's blog, but unfortunately she didn't put a blog address on her card. However, Diane D'Allesandro - you rock - and so does this card!
On a personal note: Housework and stamping tomorrow.. hopefully. I need to get some cards made for the upcoming week. So, hopefully my mojo will be flowing and I can get some cards made. Not before I have done housework though. Last weekend, I made up some of the fabulous air freshner concoction that I learned from the fabulous Rach. For some reason, it really hung around the house this week. I could still get snippets of smell from the mixture on Wednesday. So, Rach, thank you!!!!! You can see Rach's original post here.
Prayers tonight for those who need a little lift - or a warm hug. Continued prayers also for those in New Zealand. I saw a slide show on MSNBC today. It really brings home the devastation.
