Happy Hump Day to all my blogging friends :)

Today's Challenges: 1. Frosted Designs would like to see "polka dots and plaid." My plaid is the ribbon and the polka dots are the paper, stamp, ribbon, and brad. This was a toughie for me as I don't have a lot of plaid items.

2. Mojo Monday has a new sketch this week (I opted for the square version, as me and circles don 't seem to get along).




This one was an allllll nighter for some reason :S




Card Ingredients:
K&Co Viola Vita paper; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; studio g stamp; Craft Smart Black ink; Celebrate It ribbons; Primas; Making Memories brads; random button and twine.

Hmm - already Sunday - I need to retire so I can have the weekdays off too. There never seems enough time in a weekend to get everything done!! Oh well, only 25 more years then I can think about retirement LOL...


Today's Challenges: 1. Cupcake Craft Challenge wants to see "simple." I never enter one challenge twice, but when I was making my card, all I could think was "it doesn't get any simpler than this!" So with that said, I am entering this week's challenge again. I hope I don't get my hands slapped :)

2. Stampin' Royalty would like to "masculine." (what a great challenge!)

3. ABC Challenge wants to see "one paper." I did use one paper, but I also used coordinating cardstock, I hope that is okay.

4. Color Throwdown has a GREAT color combo:


5. Sketch Girl has this awesomely fab sketch:



And here is my entry:





Card Ingredients: Tim Coffey paper; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; delta creative stamp; Craft Smart Brick Red ink; Making Memories brads; random button and twine.

Happy Sunday! Thanks for stopping by and spending some time in my little corner of the world!! Take care!
