it was a late night...


FIRST ITEM OF BUSINESS... since it's friday, that means it's challenge day at If The Shoe Fits... Scrap It! i can't decide if i like the colour challenges or the sketch challenges best, but i LOVED this colour combination! here's what the Design Team was given to work with:

and this is what lil' ol' me came up with:

i LOVE the little birds from my Sassafras Lass paper pad, and i had this DCWV paper (both the floral and the gingham) that just coordinated perfectly.

if you'd like to play with these colours, we at The Shoe would love to see what you've got! at the end of the month, all entries for our Shoe challenges go into a draw for some yummy stuff from our fab sponsor, Scrap-A-Doodle-Doo! come and play with us!

okay, so last night, the hubbin headed out to an open mic to promote our new CD, Best Excuses, and to tell people about our upcoming appearance at the Beta Hi-Fi Festival next Sunday in Philly. while he was gone, i took advantage of some ME time, and was able to complete two NON-Shoe-related challenges! i haven't played along in the blogosphere in what seems like FOREVER, and i had some fun.

this week's challenge over at Limelight Papercrafts is to use PAINT on a project, and follow this sketch:

the little frame around the sentiment was chrome but i played with some green acrylic paint so that it would match my card. here's what was born at about 2:30 am:

needless to say, getting up at 8:30 wasn't so easy this morning, but it was worth it!

last, but not least, La-La Land Crafts Blog Candy is up for grabs! visit their blog, and wish them much luck on the upcoming grand opening of their shop - they have AMAZING yummies soon to be available, and i've been drooling over the sneak peeks!

and now i must put in my time at the daily grind, to earn my dollars and cents so that i might spend some of them on crafties, because in TEN DAYS, i'm allowed to shop again. it's been a LONG two months!


  1. These are both so sweet, lovely cards

  2. So so cute!!! I love the textures and patterns! What an adorable card! So glad you played along with us. :)

  3. Gorgeous card, i love the first one and the second one is very cute.
    Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog candy.
    The best of luck!
    Hugs xx
