All Pink!

Today I made an "All pink" card for a challenge that asked for pink. I have TONS of pink papers and stamps, so I thought I'd try it out. Not too shabby. It's not my 'best', but not bad either. I was planning on making a card today for my sister-in-law who has been out of town for 6 weeks in Costa Rica, and she's returning this week. It was going to be an "I missed you" card, but I figured to make it pink to go along with the challenge. I'm definitely still not as good as most of the people who enter these challenges, but I hope to get better with time. Anyway, here is the finished product:

Not happy with yesterdays creation:

I saw a "Orange and Yellow" challenge and thought, "How hard can THAT be??!"...apparently a LOT harder than I thought. This is what I came up with, and as you can see it's ugly with a capital "U"!! I'll keep trying and checking on other challenges, though....

Papercrafting and other cool stuff!: 1000 papers!

Papercrafting and other cool stuff!: 1000 papers!: "Super cute 'booty' to win:"

Anything but a card challenge...

My FIRST challenge! It was called the "Anything But" challenge. Anything but a card, that is! Here it is. A very SIMPLE (but I think elegant) black and red design for a notebook!

Just me, starting out with a "crafty" blog.

This is my first time blogging about crafting. I've blogged about other stuff before, and right now I have a blog about Disney over on wordpress. If you want, you can check it out here. Of course with my love of travel, comes a MAJOR love of photography, and THAT of course, leads to LOTS and LOTS of scrapbooks! And with having all the supplies for scrapbooking comes cardmaking. I am pretty new to cardmaking, and will post a few of my 'primitive' designs below. They don't compare with my friend Stacey's cards, which are AWESOME! But I hope to start making some much nicer cards, as I get more into it.
