2 New Challenges


I love finding new challenges and these are usually found through my visits with you!

So I hope that if these are two new places for you as well as for me, that you will enjoy finding
them as much as I have.

The first is Muse where the challenges just started last week. The focus is on a Muse inspiration card that allows you to interpret it in your own way, listing your interpretation and a link back to Muse. They
call themselves a card making club because they ask all of the participants to join in by commenting on  
at least 3 of the entries and then voting for the top 3.

Here is the Muse card:

For my inspiration I took the hearts, scalloped border and the pinks to fashion my card.

I am also using  sketch #173 at Tuesday Morning Sketches .  


Lol, I just can't seem to get away from all of the great sketches lately! So much fun....

Last week in my reader I saw a hop going on at DayDream Designs Have you seen their images? Gorgeous. I had a blast doing the hop and seeing all of the inspiring projects by the girls! 

Imagine my surprise and delight when I learned that I had won the $20 gift certificate being given as a prize. I had a difficult time deciding on just what to buy.
I picked up papers, sentiment sets and images and can't wait to show you some
of these in the next few weeks.

Today's card uses the Sweet Warm Ups Papers and Color Digi set

I used the Cameo to trace the mug, create a mat for the mug and cut the snowflakes and border.
Love that machine! It is so wonderful to able to integrate it 
with all of the wonderful digital things that I own as well as the Silhouette files.
I was able to use the color picker to match the color for my mat and center
panel perfectly from the digital paper.

I had so much fun playing with the images and designing this card. 
Now, I have given you three places to check out, so what are you waiting for?

Thanks for stopping by to visit with me!

Patti, I had to check out your card when I saw it on Muse as it is so different from all the others-which is so great! I wanted to see where your inspiration came from! Love it, love the colours, the image, it all just adds up to a gorgeous card!

I too was curious as to your inspiration from the MUSE card but you explained it beautifully and I love that your card is so different.
