Bless this Nest

Wow.  Three posts in one day.  I cannot believe how much I have managed not to do this week and yet I have indulged in not one but two challenges.  The joy!  Here is a card I made for the Color Q Challenge #30 and for the 2 Sketches 4 You Challenge.  I would never have picked this color combination but I really love the end result.  I kept it very simple using only cardstock and a stunning image I found at The Graphics Fairy.  To be honest there are so many layers of cardstock on this one that I don't think I could have got much more on it.  Well, maybe a few pearls.  

Moody Make-Up Mom

That's me!  My gorgeous daughter is studying special effects make up and did her first "shoot" earlier this week.  Unfortunately she ended up in a state this afternoon because her photographs did not come out so ... she had to do an emergency re-do this afternoon and I was the only available canvas.  The thing is it took some serious persuasion as there is one small problem.  I am camera phobic if there is such a thing.  My face takes on an instantly frozen look of something which resembles shock and I start to feel physically ill.  Ridiculous I know but never the less true.  She begged and pleaded while I found every excuse under the sun but I am proud to say that I managed to get through it and now have a photo of grumpy old me looking almost like me.

Thank You

Good morning to all.  This is just a quick post to share a small card I made.  I used the Mojo Monday sketch and the Curtain Call Color Challenge which you can find at Stacey's Stamping Stage.  I loved the colors and, while I should have been finishing a class layout that I have been procrastinating over forever, the idea of a quick challenge was too appealing.

It's time for the Just Us Girls template challenge again.  Something I can't resist!  I am so happy to have had some time today to do a little bit of paper crafting.  Life has been a little hectic lately.  I stumbled on this sweet Rock-a-Bye template over at Clear & Simple Stamps.  
The rocking horse template was designed by Sue Berker and is really easy to put together.  The box was a little too small for my purpose so I just printed the rocking horses as large as my printer would allow and made my own simple folded box from a 12 x 12" piece of cardstock.
