1) receiving top honors on several cards recently (check out the Challenge Wins & Recognition tab for details)
2) being 1 of 2 lucky winners (out of 231 that entered)--sponsored by Papercrafts Magazine-Moxie Fab World/Cath. My prize? A wonderful papercrafting package. . .the Lakeside Collection from Pebbles. I can't wait to show you what I create with it, so stay tuned.
Or, maybe it was the fact that I received a really cute digistamp just so I could enter a challenge. Wow, how cool is that--getting a free digistamp before entering the challenge. The stamp is "Harriet - At the Beach" and you can get it through this Friday at Crafty Sentiments Design. . .click here to check out all the details about the free digistamp and challenge--the theme is "We're Going on a Summer Holiday."
Lately, I'm really having trouble with the colors showing true--hmm, time for a new camera. . . or maybe just a better photo-taking-area and lighting . . .or new photo editing software. . .or maybe they're just off on my computer.
Anyway, the hot pink and bright green solid cardstock are from Bewitched by DCWV. The DPs are from Simply Fabulous-Brooke by Making Memories. Ribbon and hot pink rhinestones are from my stash.
The sentiment is computer-generated (created by me) using a free font by Creating Keepsakes. So many words came to mind, but I needed a thank you card, so I thought this would work.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
