Charisma's looking for THINGS THAT FLY!

it's time for another CHARISMA CHALLENGE! i have a little two-week vacay from the Charisma challenges, so i got a little excited about this one. Allison's chosen the theme this week....


again, LOTS of room to play, here! bees, butterflies, fairies, birds, airplanes, kites, etc... whatcha gonna make for this one?

i opted to use an image from one of our sponsors this week, the fabulous Pink Cat Studio! the other sponsor? why, it's the ever-so-lovely Simon Says Stamp! with names like that, how could you NOT want to play along? :)

here's m'card, decorated on the inside, too! (that's rare for me)

a gatefold card! TOTALLY not my usual style! look!

i've totally been loving on my BasicGrey lately - this image BEGGED for Sugar Rush, and i couldn't tell it no! little blingy action, some punched flutters (hey, they fly too!), a big Prima flower, teeny tiny ribbon, BG alphas, and bob's yer unkie!

CLICKETY CLICK HERE to see what the whole Charisma team has done for this challenge (i predict lots of ooh-ing and ahh-ing in your near future!), and play along for your chance to win! remember, your projects MUST be newly created (no backlinking), and you must link back to the Charisma Challenge Blog in order to be eligible for the prizes... you have until next WEDNESDAY to join us! :)

OH, and i knew i wanted to do the panels in sections, so i checked out a few sketches and HAD to play along with the CardPatterns challenge this week!

see what i mean?!

also played along at The Crafty Pad, where they have a recipe - 3 dps, 2 ribbons, 1 flower (the dps are the two on the outside plus the green dotty one on the inside - the other purple one is just a distressed solid)

Stamp Something is looking for "Something Sentimental" - basically add a sentiment, so i thought i'd get kinda cutesy with this one. :)

Allsorts also has the Things With Wings challenge going on, so i'm throwing this one into the mix!

sooooo, there you have it! it's already Thursday, i'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend, hopefully in which The Son will NOT have to go to the emergency room to get 5 staples in his head (happy Memorial Day, Son! here's a new memory for you!), and hopefully in which i will find my netbook once and for all.
